Amazing how research is done so piecemeal. One day you read how a vitamin or mineral or in this case fish oils are good for one condition and later read about for another yet neither study talks about the other benefits. This recent study from the Rollins School of Public Health shows it is beneficial for the baby if their mother took fish oil during the pregnancy. In this study they looked at DHA which is one half of the omega 3 partners EPA & DHA in fish oil. The data studied showed less colds and less severe symptoms in those babies whose mothers took fish oil.
