It’s  the omega-3 fatty acids in fish that provide most of the health benefits that come from eating fish. Fish especially rich in the beneficial oils known as omega-3 fatty acids include mackerel, tuna, salmon, sturgeon, mullet, bluefish, anchovy, sardines, herring, trout, and menhaden. Wow! I always told my wife that in spite of the smell, sardines are good for you. They provide about 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in about 3.5 ounces of fish.

After watching the above video, I felt like I just got sucker-punched by Eric “Butterbean” Esch. It floored me.

So I’ll keep taking fish oil capsules, and I’ll consider the jury out on how much they help my body. That’s all that I have, for now, see you soon.
