A study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry has identified omega-3s from fish as superior to omega-3s derived from oils and plant sources such as flaxseed. The reason? Marine-based omega-3s are eight times more effective at inhibiting cancerous tumour development and growth. And, a paper published in Scientific Reports revealed cognitive benefits for children who eat fish at least once a week. The study behind the paper found these children tended to sleep better and have IQ scores at least four points higher compared to those who ate fish less frequently or not at all.
