We hear about staying away from fatty foods from doctors and the news. However, there’s one type of fat you don’t want to cut back on: omega fatty acids (EFAs). There are 3 kinds of omega fatty acids –ALA, EPA and DHA. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but also they have big health benefits. Omega-3s are “essential” fatty acids because the body isn’t capable of producing them on its own. Therefore, we must rely on omega-3 foods in our diet or supplementing to supply these extremely beneficial compounds.

Research suggests that calcium and copper deficiency may begin the process of disk degeneration, which can cause lower back pain and possibly osteoporosis. Further research has also resulted in findings about what causes back pain and how to prevent back pain from occurring.
