Are fish oil supplements really improving our health but hurting our oceans? That's one question New York Times bestselling author Paul Greenberg is exploring for his next book, The Omega Principle: The Health of Our Hearts, the Strength of Our Minds, and the Survival of Our Oceans All in One Little Pill, due out next year.
Let me suggest this: Google 'kale' and read the part about flatulence. Read it carefully. It's a little-spoken of side effect that packs a big wallop. I'm not making this up. For three days I had to, in good conscience, keep my distance from all other human beings. I will be keeping my distance from kale forever more. And boy, do I feel great!
Even though I am more at risk for a panic attack than a heart attack, I still assumed that taking a daily dose of fish oil would protect me from the day that I keel over from eating too much take-out Chinese food. Is it worth the cost and fishy breath that comes with taking fish oil supplements, or is this just another pharmacological pipedream?
