> My adult son, who's been ill with scizophrenia for four years, started clozaril six months ago and has shown a great improvement. In my web browsing I recently found the University of Sheffield web site ( that reports on their work exploring the possible beneficial effects of fish oil and the fatty acids, EPA, etc., on schizophrenia symptoms and discussing a phospholipid hypothesis. Also see
> I copied the reports and sent them to my son's doctor, asking her whether she thought it was worth suggesting that my son try taking fish oil supplements. I wonder if anyone has any other references or information that I might share with her. I haven't seen much information on the site, but it is somewhat chaotic.

James here....

I avoid fish oil because of DDT and the increasing problems with finding aquatic life with serious problems. Hemp Seed oil (having no THC) is a very high source of the Omegas and EFA's including linditic acid (which is a EFA..though I have spelled it wrong!...that is very hard to get in even a well balanced diet)
i have seen doc's on this link between sciz and EFA and omegas. It can't hurt to add them to anyones diet...they are cardio protective and anti-oxidents...
