Sorry, but even if you do not want to see, we humans are a part of nature.seeker242 wrote: ↑Sat May 25, 2019 12:23 am Natural is irrelevant to what is good or not good. Your logical fallacy is appeal to nature
Some guy's blog is also not an accurate source of information. Professional nutrition scientists know more than that guy does. Most of what he said is just flat out wrong. The largest organizations of nutrition professionals in the word vs some guy with a blog. It's not even a contest!
During our evolution as a race we have adapted to consume natural foods, not supplements.
So yes, while supplemets can be some emergency measure to compensate for unhealthy
eating habits, this is not what our organism would really want and needs in order to function
optimally in terms of health.
Secondly, you cannot simply discard everything I wrote just because I linked a "blog" you would prefer not to trust.
The need of DHA for brain development is a medical fact; do your research, there is an enormous amount of
real scientific research on it.
The inefficient conversion of ALA into EPA and DHA is also a physiological fact. So even if you feed enormous
amounts of flax seed and walnuts to your kid every day, this will not be enough for optimal brain development.
Do your own research.
Actually consumption of DHA (from fish and from bone marrow and brain of big animal) was that helped the rapid growth
and development of human brain during evolution making us human in the first place.
