Dr. Tommy Wood shares his take on when and how to act, along with other health tips for fitness and longevity. https://drruscio.com/?p=36645

Dr. Kristina Harris Jackson, an expert in omega-3s and measuring DHA in blood, shares everything you need to know about safely optimizing your DHA level. https://drruscio.com/?p=39027
