The Dangers of Omega 9
Many people believe that the fatty acids, Omega 3, 6, and 9 are very beneficial for all to help with joint, skin, and hair health. While that may be true of humans, along with cats, dogs, and horses, I feel I must put out a warning for my readers that may be certain ants and bees.
The Dangers Are Real!
If you happen to be part of the ant or bee species, there is a serious chance that Omega 9 could cause you major problems! Some of these insects, as a cleansing mechanism, will release Oleic acid as a pheromone after they die. This will then alert the other drones that their comrade has fallen victim to their short lifespan. At that point, the live bees will push the dead bee out of the hive, making sure that there isn't a large stack of dead bee bodies in the corner of the hive. This works out really well for keeping a clean hive, but, could have disastrous effects for live bees. I can't even imagine the dejection that you would feel after being completely ousted from your home, having your flatmates consider that you are dead to them. So, if you are an ant or a bee, even if you are having joint pain, or skin and hair problems, please, do not take Omega 9 supplements. The results could damage your ego, and perhaps force you to live on your own.
