In The Omega-3 Effect, Dr. William Sears, M.D. – often called “America’s Pediatrician” – turns his attention to the critical role that omega-3s play in health.
Dr. Sears takes readers through each body system – including the brain, heart, joints, skin, and immune system – and demonstrates how omega-3s are essential to each.
The Omega-3 Effect also offers tips on what foods and supplements readers should incorporate into their diet, as well as several delicious recipes.
Written in the wise, accessible tone that has made his books long-term bestsellers, Dr. Sears offers a practical, science-based approach to living a more healthful life – with the aid of clarifying illustrations and clever cartoons.
