The Sears family is one of the most trusted names in pediatrics. With more than two million books sold, the Sears Parenting Library has established itself as the premier pediatric resource for consumers. Drs. William Sears and James Sears have broadened their scope beyond children’s health to family health and nutrition in their new book, THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT: Everything You Need to Know About the Supernutrient for Living Longer, Happier, and Healthier (Little, Brown and Company; August 28, 2012; $10.99).
Omega-3s are highly unsaturated fatty acids that are commonly found in seafood and fish oil supplements. THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT explains the nutrient’s chemistry and how it can help heal various mental and physical ailments ranging from high blood pressure to Alzheimer’s disease. By going through each body system, the Searses describe the head-to-toe healing effects that omega-3s possess, including the ability to aid in weight loss and reverse some of the effects of aging, as well as the role they play in pregnancy and children’s health. The book shows readers how to incorporate omega-3s into their diet by providing proper supplement dosages and information on how to select and prepare seafood safely.
THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT continues the Sears family’s tradition of writing books that “reach the most readers with the best science in the simplest way.” William Sears even draws on his personal experience, touching on the colon cancer diagnosis that led him on a search for the perfect health food. He discovered that omega-3s functioned as medicine for brains and bodies of all ages. Whether we’re looking out for ourselves or our children, THE OMEGA-3 EFFECT is a thorough guide to how to live as healthfully as possible.
