Seal Oil?

Interest in seal oil as a source of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids began some thirty years ago. The remarkable studies on the dietary consumption of Greenland Eskimos by Danish scientists Bang and Dyerberg marked the beginning of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids being studied for health benefits.

The Discovery

In the 1970s Bang and Dyerberg discovered that despite a diet high in fat*, Greenland Eskimos had an astonishingly low risk of cardiac death, heart attack, coronary heart disease and cancer when compared to the Danish population. This discovery imitated a significant amount of research about long chain Omega-3 fatty acids as indicated by the several thousand papers that have emerged. More on Omega-3
