Essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (LA, omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, omega-3) play a vital role in oxygenating the body and transforming solar energy. They have a special nature which makes them essential to life, and at the same time, causes them to decompose in the presence of light or air. Nature, however, has designed a protection from light and oxygen damage and it is called the seed. Thus, the more whole seed essential fatty acids (EFAs) we eat, the greater the integrity of the EFA, and the end result for our bodies is increased energy and vitality.

The issue of aquaculture (fish farming) is not a simple one. When only considering the basic theory of fish farming, and not its ugly real world repercussions, one could put forth the argument that some forms of aquaculture can help take pressure off wild fisheries and provide much-needed income to coastal communities in trying economic times. However, when one takes a closer look at the impact aquaculture has on the environment and wild marine species, it becomes clear that the communities in question can end up suffering rather than thriving.
