Salmon is the best source for the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which protect from heart disease and arrhythmia problems, as well as many other health issues. 

Forget mercury contamination!! How many cases of mercury deaths or problems are reported each year, as compared to heart deaths! The ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 should be one to one! In this country it has changed over the last 60 years and is now as bad as fifty or sixty to one, because of the widespread use of vegetable oils which contain only Omega 6. The fear of seafood because of mercury, PCBs, and other problems have been blown out of proportion. 

BEST FOODS:  Protein

This includes animal and aquatic, as well as certain vegetation which contain all the essential amino acids. Keep in mind that a cow, which is a vegetarian, can eat only grass and because of the rumen can convert and break the cellulose down to glucose in the rumen.  The grass is the source of all the minerals and nutrients needed for normal growth.  The growing animal will turn this into bone, muscle and fat!!  Red meat is the best source of B12 and folic acid that are essential to control homocysteine and prevent heart disease.

Seafood is also an important food now recognized as a source of the omega 3 essential fatty acids, as well as the protein needed for growth and good health. Certain seafoods are especially important as the only rich source of essential vitamins and minerals.

What is the driving motivation of the Pharmaceutical Industry and the medical profession!

    Syndrome X....obesity, diabetes [insulin resistance], heart disease and cancer. These are the big money makers for the medical profession, health care support groups and of course the big drug companies with patented drugs that command high prices as well as the food business selling all the high priced, highly processed foods and additives.
    Shall we treat, cure or prevent from ever happening! There is no money to be made from prevention! Where would we be if diabetes, heart disease and cancer suddenly ceased to exist! Don't worry, when you run into these scourges of modern society we will take good care of you and keep you going as long as possible! We have all the drugs, support groups,hospitals and apparatus to keep you a good patient, client and customer for as long as you or Uncle Sam can afford to pay the price! Look at all the people that were out of business when polio, tuberculosis and other scourges were prevented from being a threat to life.
    If we can prevent simply by making a few changes in nutrition and way of life instead of blaming our health problems on genetics and mercury and pesticides and what we think we can not control.. which is the way to go? It all depend on where your pay check comes from!

Opening for my book!.... dad
