I posted another thread about fish oil being bad for you
I do not take it but I really do not take anything and just try to eat right...must work I am still alive?
There are only two (2) essential fatty acids, LA (parent omega-6) and ALA (parent omega-3). They MUST come from food. To work properly, they MUST be
NOT heated, chemically unprocessed, organically raised and processed to guarantee full physiologic functionality. Fast foods use adulterated,
non-functional EFAs that can no longer be termed a fully functional parent essential oils. All other EFAs excluding ALA and LA are correctly termed
EFA “derivatives.” This includes the most common derivatives such as AA, DHA, EPA, etc. What is not understood by most physicians is that
derivatives are made in the body, from the parent EFAs,
Fish oil (and krill oil) do not work in clinical practice
(despite most everyone saying they do)
Sometimes, ingrained beliefs, even those without scientific foundation, are
hard to change. As has occurred with many other nutritional supplements
once in the limelight, there is little, if any, scientific validity to fish oil
and krill oil’s miraculous claims. It is simply another case of “finance
masquerading as science”— in this case, developing new markets for fish
— and of medicine’s long history of mistakes and wrong recommendations.
Making money is fine when you truly help people, but not when you harm
them, even unknowingly. Results consisting of mere “associations,” and
“studies“ conducted without valid experiments in which only one variable
is changed at a time are meaningless. That’s why the recommendations
from most “studies” are later reversed and withdrawn, which leaves the
lay public confused. END QUOTE:
