DHA may lower dementia risk

High blood DHA levels may lower dementia risk YahooNews/Reuters 11/21/06 " High blood levels of the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which belongs to the class of nutrients called essential fatty acids, may protect against the development of dementia and perhaps Alzheimer's disease...men and women with the highest DHA levels had a 47 percent reduction in risk of developing dementia and a 39 percent reduction in the risk of Alzheimer's disease compared with those with less DHA...180 milligrams DHA per day ( is enough to see this benefit)"

Yet more evidence that DHA is profoundly useful to the health of the brain - from before birth, throughout life.
