    I noticed the difference in my skin within a week. I'm couldn't be bothered digging it up but their is vast research on the benefits on fish oil. Getting it from natural sources is obviously better but I don't like seafood besides a bit of salmon so I take CLO a few times a week.

    I ate cold water fish pretty much daily throughout the 2000s, 2002-2012, a full 10 years. I believe consuming so much fish damaged my thyroid, sped up perimenopause and wrecked me health. Have just discontinued recently and feel better than I have in years; will likely never eat salmon or sardines regularly again.
    The Painful Truth About Omega 3 Fatty Acids

    Omega 3 fatty acids do have anti-inflammatory effects in the body, but these anti-inflammatory effects are short lived. And there may be long term pro-inflammatory effects associated with their consumption.

    I agree.

    Re: Omega-3: The killer oils

    Only by spending billions of dollars has Agri-business been able to
    convince us that soy, phytoestrogens, and omega 3 (as well as omega 6)
    fatty acids are good for us, when in fact ...

    THEY ARE THE MOST DEADLY OF ANTI-METABOLITES.

    Several months ago, after years of going in circles regarding omega
    3 fatty acids, I finally did what I should have done years earlier -
    an exhaustive literature search on ALA, EPA, and DHA. The results of
    that search left me red faced with embarrassment. All I can do now is
    face the truth, and pass that truth along to you. And that truth is,
    quite simply, that ...

    OMEGA 3 OILS ARE EVEN MORE DAMAGING
    THAN OMEGA 6 OILS.

    Re: Omega-3: The killer oils

    IT IS THE OXIDIZED OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS
    THAT HAVE THE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECTS.

    The obvious problem here is that these anti-inflammatory effects
    are short-lived, while the oxidative free radical damage that ensues
    has devastating long term consequences. In experiments that last only
    weeks to months, seemingly beneficial anti-inflammatory effects can be
    documented. However, in these short-term studies there is no time for
    the experimental subjects to show the immuno-suppressive damage, lipid
    peroxidative damage, light sensitizing damage, anti-mitochondrial
    effects, depressed aerobic energy production, lipofuscin age pigment
    production, liver damage, brain damage, and metastatic cancer that
    result from long-term intake of fish oils and other sources of omega
    free fatty acids.

    “WHAT ABOUT THE ESKIMO DIET?!!”

    Everyone “knows” (thanks to the PUFA propaganda machine) that
    Eskimos had no cardiovascular disease, little cancer, no arthritis, no
    tooth decay, no allergies, etc., etc., and that their good health
    resulted from a diet of salmon, seal, and whale --- all high in EPA
    and DHA. [The propaganda machine ignores that there were many
    traditional cultures similarly free of degenerative diseases that
    never saw a salmon, a seal, or a whale, and that consumed no more
    omega 3 fatty acids than the typical modern American slob. ( --- The
    best nutrition book ever written is Weston Price’s “Nutrition and
    Physical Degeneration.” Everyone should read it three times --- at age
    12, at age 17, then again when ready to have a family.)] Let us expose
    this later vintage health food industry mythology for the fraud that
    it is.

    The truth is, Eskimos were free of many degenerative diseases in
    spite of, not because of, their damaging n-3 intake. In fact, the n-3s
    are the only negative in an otherwise perfect (for their metabolic
    type) diet.

    Claiming that fish oil was responsible for the Eskimos freedom
    from degenerative disease is even more absurd than the claim that
    yogurt was the key to the Hunza’s longevity. Salmon, a reasonable food
    in moderation, if part of an eating plan extraordinary in every other
    way, comes with a huge warning label: “MAY CONTAIN AS MUCH AS 10%
    OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS --- known to accelerate aging and increase the
    risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.”

    Isn't it about balance between 3 and 6?
