Paul Greenberg - The Omega Principle: Seafood and the Quest for a Long Life and a Healthier Planet

Upcoming Event
Saturday, July 14, 2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Found in fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to reduce risk factors for heart disease as well as to sharpen cognitive abilities. But this miracle for human health and longevity is a looming disaster for marine life. In his comprehensive history of the science, business, and environmental impact of our growing exploitation of this compound, Greenberg, James Beard-Award winning author of Four Fish and American Catch, looks back to the biological evolution of omega-3s, the prehistoric human discovery of seafood, modern eating habits, and the multi-billion dollar omega-3 industry that may endanger larger marine mammals and fish that also feed on the sources of omega-3.
