Something's Fishy About Fish Oil

Did you know...
"Fish absorb and intensely concentrate toxins like PCBs, dioxins, radioactive substances, and heavy metals like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic, all of which are linked to cancer as well as nervous system disorders, kidney damage, and impaired mental functioning. They contain excessive amounts of cholesterol, animal protein, and hazardous, blood-altering oils."
Excerpt from The World Peace Diet by Will Tuttle, Ph.D.

The healthiest sources are (ground) flax seeds, walnuts, soybeans, tofu, hemp oil, dark greens, and seaweeds.
