    yeah, am all servicey like that.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Just another case of conflating correlation with causation.

    This is a fantastic supplement and it is packed in medium chain triglycerides. Also, the Vitamin D in the supplement is from lanolin. Many D supplements take their Vitamin D from cod liver oil, which is highly toxic and why you may find fish oil a carrier for many D supplements.. I will not take Vitamin D derived from fish.
    This is the one I take (but in 2500 IU instead of 5000). There are also liquid forms of D3 in MCT oil. I used to take one by Carlson that was 4000 IU per drop.

    That's every study "showing" positives for fish oil.

    Fishing societies with no access to modern, processed foods are healthy you say? It must be because of the omega 3's that your body specifically does not manufacture, not all the fake foods they have no access to! Here, take this highly refined, super-heated, hexane-extracted, highly oxidized, trans-fat laden oil pill made from the byproducts of sick, farmed fish.
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    Fish oil is anti inflammatory. If eating fish is healthy; problems from supplementation seem inconsistent. Suppose the majority of people who take fish oil capsules; are obese to begin with; they fear heart attacks. So the study purports to show people who take fish oil get prostate cancer; but its really showing that obese persons get prostate cancer. Thats my take.

    Some of the comments seem to be drifting far afield of the study. The study was about blood levels of chemicals that are secondary to fish oil consumption. It was not correlated with fish or capsules or amount consumed. Aim, then fire.
