Hello and thanks for the query.

Importance of eating organic
The impact to the earth and the environment is lower.
Organic farmers use less energy, less water resources, and NO pesticides. Organic farmers rarely have to burn their fields, because their soil stays XXXXXXX in content, moisture and nutrients due to careful management of land and using only natural organic matter to cultivate and grow their crops.

Each month dozens of new pesticides, cleaners, fertilizers etc… show up in local supermarkets and stores. These products, advertised heavily are purchased and used and thus the destruction of the earth continues slow and steady.

Organic farmers, live cleanly. Free of pesticides and toxins. They do not clutter up the landfills with toxic waste or subject their bodies to unhealthy foods. It is a conscious choice. One made in order to survive right along with the planet that sustains them

Benefits of consuming omega 3

1...Several studies have proven that one of the benefits from Omega 3 prevents and treats heart disease. These essential fats have shown to lower levels of inflammation, reduce triglycerides and prevent deadly blood clots.

2...Omega 3 has been tested and proven to lower hypertension

3...People with diabetes often have high triglyceride and low HDL levels. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil can help lower triglycerides and Apo proteins (markers of diabetes), and raise HDL, so eating foods or taking fish oil supplements may help people with diabetes. 

4...Although some experts don’t agree, women who eat or take Omega 3 supplements over years may be less likely to develop breast cancer. More research needs to be done to see if Omega 3 fatty acid does in fact help prevent this type of cancer.

5....The benefits of Omega 3 for colon cancer greatly reduces risk of this type of cancer. For example, Eskimos, have a high fat diet but they eat a good amount of cold water fish that are XXXXXXX in omega 3 fatty acids. 

6....Recent studies have shown omega 3 fatty acids seem to block the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are responsible for causing cramping in the uterus. 

7...The benefits of omega 3 in pregnant and nursing mothers would be the help in the development of the brain. If you are pregnant you should consider using distilled fish oil pills. They’re totally safe and it gives the fetus brain the best chance for developing properly. Taking omega 3 after breast feeding is still important for you and your children. It helps with attention deficit, hyper activity and higher IQ levels. Remember it’s always a good idea to talk to a doctor before you take omega 3 supplements, especially if your pregnant or breast feeding.

8...Eating fish or taking omega 3 supplements have shown in some studies, that omega 3 can help decrease the chances of reoccurring miscarriages also called antiphospholipid syndrome.

9....Studies have clearly shown in the last century, the amount of fish we eat has really decreased and now most of us including children are lacking in these important fats. Benefits of Omega 3 in children can have a significant positive impact on the ability to perform in school, ADHD, dyslexia and dysphasia.

10...There are studies although not proven that Omega 3 and depression are linked in some ways, but there is good evidence that would strongly suggest that taking omega 3s will be beneficial for those suffering from depression. 

I hope I have explained it in detail however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
