Eating Hemp Makes You Smart & Good-Looking

If it isn't obvious from the evidence presented in this photo of my daughter at age one eating an Alpsnack, eating foods that contain industrial hemp seed make you smart and good-looking.

According to Nutiva:

Leading researchers and medical doctors consider hempseed to be one of the most nutritious food sources on the planet. Shelled hempseed is packed with 33 percent pure digestible protein and is rich in iron, vitamin E, omega-3 and GLA. A recent report funded by the Canadian government states that hemp protein, wich is 66 percent edistin, contains the highest percentage of this high-quality protein of any plant source. Hemp contains three times the vitamin E of flax. Unlike non-organic soy, hemp is not genetically modified.

According to Vote Hemp:

No other vegetable oil offers essential fatty acids at such high concentrations or in such a desirable omega-6/omega-3 ratio. Deficiencies of omega-3 in the human diet are a co-factor in a wide range of common illnesses, including cardiovascular diseases, arthritis, diabetes, skin and mood disorders. A 1999 workshop by the U.S. National Institute of Health demonstrated the impressive benefits of a balanced omega-6/omega-3 ratio in our diet: reduced risk of atherosclerosis, sudden cardiac death and certain types of cancers, decrease in the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, mood improvement in bipolar disorders and optimized development in infants. Hemp oil also provides significant amounts of the more rare 'super' polyunsaturated fatty acids, notably gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and stearidonic acid (SDA). Supplementation with GLA and SDA appears to alleviate the symptoms of atopic dermatitis and other skin diseases in some patients. Hemp protein appears to be free of antinutrients that are found in soy to interfere with protein uptake.
