On very rare occasions, the FDA accepts overwhelming evidence about the health benefits of a product and allows the manufacturer to make a very specific health claim on the product’s label and advertising. The FDA has allowed products with Omega-3’s to make the following statement about the – prevention of cardiovascular disease.
“Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of [Name of the food] provides [ ] gram of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol content.]”
Eligible foods that can make this claim are – conventional foods and dietary supplements that contain EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Each 250 mg capsule of Seagate’s Omega-3s is composed of 30% omega-3 fatty acids, one of the highest natural contents of any food or supplement. Seagate does not extract the omega-3s and inject them into this product. This is the real natural content contained in the livers that we process.
Sometimes when there are no fish swimming around, you have to look for other interesting subjects. It is incredible that the world beneath the sea has more colors and brighter colors than our world on land. Unfortunately few of us are able to enjoy them. I am not sure if the fish can even appreciate them.
This photo of a coral tube above was taken with macro lens. This lens allows for close-ups. However it also permits very little depth of field. So the background appears fuzzy (on purpose) in order to capture the the details in the first 2-3″ of depth of the subject. This type of picture is very difficult to take in an areas where the surge is pushing the diver around like you were inside a washing machine. You must also be very careful not to come in contact with the coral and risk damaging anything. So timing the shot must be perfect. You have a split second to focus as you are passing over the subject. In order to even attempt this type of shot, the diver has to have absolute control over his buoyancy. The camera lens that took this photo was less than 3″ away from the coral.
