Alcohol's Damaging Effects
Another circumstance that increases the body's need for DHA is elevated consumption of alcohol. Although studies have not been conducted in humans, alcohol has been shown to reduce DHA levels in brain and retina, as well as liver, plasma, and red blood cells in animal models of alcoholism. Low essential fatty acid intake among alcoholics may thus contribute to to risk of developing liver disease and to dimished retinal function, suggesting that frequent alcholo consumers may have a high dietary requirement for omega-3s.
