Not a fish tale: Eating fatty fish is good for your health, doc saysAugust 11, 2016 |
by Dr. David Samadi
There’s no question that we Americans don’t have enough fish in our diets. As little fish as we eat, we consume even less fatty fish, which is a bigger tragedy.
Fatty fish — herring, sardines, salmon, tuna, trout and others — are our only source of fish oil (outside of supplementation).
Doctors are particularly concerned that pregnant and breastfeeding women are not consuming enough of the omega-3 acids found in fish oil.
