Abstract

Omega-3s are found in oily fish. We have drastically reduced our intake of fish during the last century. Many of us therefore suffer from a deficiency of omega-3s, which has consequences for health. In this review, we focus on structure-functional relationships and the relation of omega-3s to the metabolic syndrome, infertility, and pregnancy.
