Dr. Barry Sears
If you use placebo doses, you get placebo results.  I have always recommended 2.5 grams of EPA and DHA (not just DHA) for a pregnant mother, and then continuing to give the child about 1 gram of EPA and DHA for the first two years after birth and 2.5 grams of EPA and DHA thereafter.  Then you will see results.  The doses used in this study came nowhere close to those recommendations.
