    Looks like a great reason to include both in my diet. I love pretty much all seafood and shellfish.

    Places where clams beat out oysters is just by a little.

    IDK, clams have quite the lead in b12 and calcium. I think they both have similar nutritional value, but each has its own stronger suit in some departments. But even where one beats the other, they often come close or exceed the RDA, so I'm wondering when they exceed, how useful the excess is anyway if you already meet your needs through this food and all of your other foods from the day.

    That assumes that the RDA provided us by the USDA for each and every nutrient is correct.

    I already think it's bunk on a few nutrients, for example, vitamin D. Too low.

    Just one example. I'm sure there are others they under or over estimated our needs for.

    Agree about RDA but I don't have a better guideline ATM. There's a lot of scattered info on the interwebs, but not much in the way of updated requirements and why. So I use it as a loose guideline and make improvements where I know they should be.

    There shoud be distinctions between vitamin k1 and k2, as well as retinol and beta carotene. People think they're getting tons of vitamin A when they're really not.

    I'd do it myself, but I havem't a clue of the serving size used for the original comparison.
