Fish & Your Diet

Patrick and I were just reading this article -it says "pass the fish - oil capsules, please." It was taken from the Harvard Heart Letter. What is it telling us? It has to do with Omega Fish Oils - the northern fish with the oil that prevents heart disease. For years we've been talking about it - how important it is to eat the fish and/or take supplements, but in my opinion, taking supplements was the way to go. but they never recommended it - but you know what they're recommending now?

When you go through the article the most important thing you're going to find is right here. It says "acknowledging that not everyone wants to, or can afford to eat oil-rich fish everyday, the Heart Association grudgingly sanctioned the use of fish oil supplements."

You know what that's telling you? Finally they agree with us & Fox television, that most of us, unless there's a contraindication, should be taking fish supplements. Why? To prevent heart disease. It also helps us with arthritis and probably prevents cancer too. You just can't eat enough fish - northern fish - and that's the reason why. And you know how I knew? It was common sense.

And I'm Dr. David Vastola, and that's life.
