Global warming will make access to omega-3 more difficult

Global warming of a modern systematic nature can be devastating not only in relation to our own planet, but also in relation to us, its inhabitants. In particular, a new statistical study from several Canadian universities has demonstrated that for the current century, in the absence of any effective measures to counter global warming, most of the world's population risks being left without adequate access to omega-3 fats and the so-called docosahexaenoic acid – components that are mainly obtained from seafood and, in particular, from lake and sea fish.
Such news is quite alarming, especially given the fact that some early studies somehow confirmed this scenario – however, the presented scenario is the worst of all calculated. Under him, experts predict a decrease in total consumption and access to omega-3 fats at 95.6%, which seems to be a very large figure.
On the other hand, scientists from Canadian universities also point to the fact that they have identified a mathematical tendency in which a decrease in the number of natural sources of these substances will lead to the creation of artificial ones – which, most likely, will not yield in time its quality and natural pace. Whatever it was, but for now it is not entirely clear how exactly the climatic changes in global warming can directly affect fish, since wildlife constantly finds a way to adapt living organisms to the new realities of the global biome.
On the other hand, the presented results are somehow compiled on the basis of many third-party and earlier systematic studies, some of which already raised some doubts as to their veracity. In any case, it is worth continuing to monitor the work of Canadian specialists and, on the basis of it, make a definite conclusion as to whether global warming really affects the biome so much.
