John Simkin Posted June 14, 2006 Share Posted June 14, 2006 It is claimed that the government is considering giving regular doses of fish oil supplements to children to improve their behaviour and concentration in the classroom. The education secretary, Alan Johnson, has pointed out: "The Food Standards Agency is conducting a systematic review of research looking at the effect of nutrition and diet on performance and behaviour of children in schools. This includes investigating studies that have used Omega 3 and 6 supplements in schools." (1) Do you think that fish oil supplements do make a difference? (2) Is this an example of compulsory mass medication? If so, are you in favour of this development? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
