On this edition of  Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation with award winning journalist Paul Greenberg about his new book, The Omega Principle: Seafood and the Quest for a Long Life and a Healthier Planet.

Fish oil is one of the most popular and profitable supplements on the market, but Greenberg says our quest for a healthier life is destroying the ocean ecosystem. There’s also new science about the health claims of the omega-3 supplement industry.
