Is Omega 3 A Bad Thing?
75 days to go until the start of VBW. We walked 106 kms in the week finishing yesterday. Quite a good total for 7 days which included 2 travelling.
We have all been bombarded with advice over the past few years to eat foods containing Omega 3 because it has so many health benefits. When my eye problem was diagnosed last year I was advised that the only thing which might possibly slow down the rate of attrition is Omega 3. So I have been absolutely ramming the stuff into me.
But what do I read now? Omega 3 is one of the causes of gout (which is something no walker would want). Not only that, but another cause of gout is fresh fruit! Where do we go from here?
