WORKER BEES’ DAILY BITES
Aspirin and fish are two health topics that get plenty of coverage. Just when you read the latest studies that command you to shun all things pill and pisces, another round tells you to take the opposite tack. We’re dishing all the latest research. And for simultaneous comic relief and health insights, you’ll enjoy the link to a debunker who is taking on…the debunkers.
Aspirin: What a Pill
Plenty of authoritative medical studies and organizations recommend taking aspirin for various health issues ranging from heart disease  to cancer . Other studies find fault with this OTC drug . Today, European scientists are calling for better investigation into the dangers of aspirin . One problem with OTC drugs is that they are often taken in excess of the recommended dosages. Our observation (certainly not original, but worth stating): OTC drugs are still drugs, and it’s vital to exercise caution and do your homework. Many hospital visits are due to overdoses and interactions  from “harmless” OTC drugs.
Fish: Scientists Still Flip-Flopping
While fish consumption does present concerns (mercury ! sustainable harvesting !) one thing is now conclusive: fish oil  is a more effective source of essential fatty acids than olive oil, nuts and plant oils.

But Who Will Debunk the Debunkers?
Anssi Manninen, that’s who (via Bodybuilding.com ). This is a pretty interesting and entertaining piece calling nutritional “debunkers” on the their own apparently misguided advice.
