Trick Your Body

Researchers may have found a way to trick your body into thinking it is eating the good fats even when your not.

Eating more fish is the best way for anyone to get their Omega 3 or the good fat while meat has Omega 6 fatty acids, which increases your risk of cardiovascular disease.

There may be a way though for you to fool your brain into thinking it is eating fish when actually your eating meat and worms may be the answer.

Yes worms, but not the typical one you find in the ground these are C Elegans, which can convert Omega 6 to Omega 3 something humans cannot do. Worms make the conversion because of an enzyme called Fat-1.

It'll be years before human testing can occur but for now doctors are creating a transgenic mouse that carries the key enzyme their studying. Animal studies are needed to show promise before human testing can commence.
