Krill Oil – Most Sustainable Source of Omega-3
Recently, some scare tactics have been promoted regarding krill becoming endangered since the encouragement of krill oil for health, and that whales are being threatened by krill harvesting. These reports fail to state, however, that only 12% of the krill harvested is for human consumption, and that the majority of harvested krill is used for commercial fisheries and sport fishing bait. Also, there are more krill on Earth than any other creature, and the harvesting rate is carefully regulated with a yearly catch limit, set by the CCAMLR (Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources). Approximately 2% of the catch limit is actually harvested yearly. In the last 20 years, only a fraction of the millions of tons of krill in the Antarctic have been harvested, and krill reproduce several hundred million tons annually. As for the claim about whales, the total annual catch only equals 0.14% of the whales' consumption, or less than 1/5 of a percent. Harvesting of krill does not have a devastating effect on the environment or food chain. (See Krill Oil™) Aquatic Living Resources.
Whole Sunshine Provides Many Health Benefits
Whole sunshine, which includes ultraviolet, visible spectrum, and infrared wavelengths, provides significant health benefits. Many studies have shown that patients with atherosclerosis showed a reduction of serum cholesterol by as much as 13% with just two hours of sunlight exposure. Rabbits exposed to sunlight also had cleaner arteries than those exposed to standard room lighting.
Other noted health benefits to whole sunshine include:
- Glycogen storage in the muscle and liver increases after sunbathing.
- Solar radiation on male genitals increased testosterone secretion.
- Sunbathing lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels and normalizes electrocardiograms.
- Early stage hypertension improves with sunbathing and UV light exposure. (See O-Mega D™) Sunlight Could Save Your Life.
Tea and Ovarian Cancer
Researchers at the University of Washington have found that the risk of ovarian cancer for women can be decreased by up to 54% by consuming two cups of black tea or one cup of green tea daily. A similar study in Stockholm showed the risk reduced by up to 50%. (See Antioxidant Spectrum™) Prepared Food E-dition.
