The Omega Principle book cover

The Omega Principle

What are omega-3s? What do they do for us? And what is their extraction doing to our oceans? The Omega Principle is the story of the the push-and-pull of science and business and the human quest for long life at all costs; a story that stretches from the dawn of complex life through human prehistory on into the modern era. Will omega-3s point the way to a bold new direction for our food systems or will our obsession with these curious molecules destroy the ocean as we know it?
