Garbage in, garbage out

More than 120 children in Durham have taken part in a trial to see if taking a cocktail of natural oils could help performance in class.

Half used a combination of omega-3 fish oil and omega-6 evening primrose oil and half took an olive oil placebo

Results suggested that after three months, the group using the fatty acid made 'highly significant improvements' in 12 out of 13 behavioural scales, including three diagnostic ADHD features - inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Short term memory also significantly improved.

It's hardly surprising, when you see the slop that children are fed nowaday (he said, sounding like an old bastard) - all the additives and sugars and lack of vitmains, minerals and essential oils can only be to the long-term detriment of studying
