The human brain is approximately 60% fat. Fatty acids (e.g., DHS, EPA, omega-3) are needed to build nerve endings. Some psychiatric and neurological disorders are linked to lack of omega-3 (e.g., depression—more girls, ADHD—more boys, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia). (Gurian, Michael, PhD, and Patricia Henley, with Terry Trueman. Boys and Girls Learn Differently! CA: Jossey-Bass, 2001, pp 86-89)

One of the most critical decisions ever you make for the good or detriment of your brain involves the type of fat you include in your diet—from birth to death. (Carper, Jean. Your Miracle Brain. NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2000, pp 49-51)
