About
Omega-3 fatty acids have long been celebrated as key to a healthy heart and a sharper brain. In the last few decades, that promise has been encapsulated in one of America's most popular dietary supplements. But a closer look reveals that this "miracle pill" - one whose efficacy is up for debate - is only the latest product of a global industry that has boiled down trillions of pounds of marine life into animal feed, fertilizer, margarine, and dietary supplements.

Taking us from Peru to Antarctica, from the Canary Islands to the Amalfi Coast, James Beard Award-winning author Paul Greenberg tells the big story behind these tiny molecules as they relate to the fate of our oceans and the human quest for health and long life at all costs. Rigorously reported and winningly told, The Omega Principle is a powerful argument for a more deliberate relationship to the food we eat and the oceans that sustain us.
