HEMP GIVES A VICTORY TO FISHERMEN
Image right is a fisherman with roach (Rutilus rutilus). This is one of many fish taken by the use of hemp seeds, including the latest tournament in the Cambridge Fish Perservation's Championship (see www.cambridge-news.co.uk/sport/angling/2007/03/09).
Also in this month's UK papers, another research trial with children has concluded that Omega 3 oils are good for learning (along with leaving off junk food); however, it recommended fish oils, the usual story from the fourth estate without a lot of research. Fish oils have been recalled by the Food Standards Agency here because of contaminants, so if anyone is really smart, they will seek plant sources for this, such as hemp, flax and evening primrose oil.
