Startled By Your Noisy Kids?

Studies are showing that omega-3 essential fatty acids (such as those found in salmon) help mice not react to loud noises. In all seriousness they hope it will help people who have information-processing problems such as schizophrenia; bipolar, obsessive-compulsive, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders; Huntington’s disease; and other afflictions of the nervous system. I found it interesting that the related compounds found in flax seed oil and vegan sources didn’t seem to have the same effect. But DHA and EPA seemed to do the trick.

I know that I can get overwhelmed by a lot of loud chaos myself so I am going to have try to eat more salmon for my own peace of mind!
