The passing of Omega-3 Pioneer: Dr. Ralph Homan

Dr Ralph Homan upon his passing last week was remembered as a talented, dedicated, humble scientist and mentor.

Dr. Holman was a deeply spiritual person who, inspired by the alpha and omega of the Bible, awarded essential fatty acids their “omega” titles.

As author Susan Allport explained in her profile of Dr. Homan inThe Queen of Fats, “Holman knew more about how these fatty acids behave in the body than probably any other person on earth. He’d sensed, very early on, that essential fatty acids were much more important than cholesterol in shaping health and disease, a hunch that is now being borne out by study after study …

Early on, Dr. Holman worked with Nobel Prize winners at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, where he made landmark discoveries about inflammation.

Later, he worked alongside George Burr at the University of Minnesota, who first discovered the essential fatty acids.

Perhaps his greatest honor came in 1981, when he was offered membership in the National Academy of Science.

Among the many scientists he mentored, Dr. Holman chose Doug Bibus, PhD., to run his lab for a number of years, and they remained lifelong friends.

Doug Bibus now performs the analyses of blood that people submit after they take the Vital Omega-3 and 6 HUFA Test which reveals the critically important balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in blood.

For the entire story.
