Can Fish Oil Help Reading?
Discussion Fats and fatty acids are essential for good human health. Saturated fats have hydrogen pairs linked to each carbon on the carbon backbone. They are solid or semi-solid at room temperature.

Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liq...

Fish with a side of plastic?
Our ancestors thrived on eating fish fresh from the ocean. After all, fish is a pure source of protein and healthy omega-3 fats.

In fact, the fish on your dinner plate today is likely loaded with plastic trash. Let me explain… Every year, billions of pounds of plastic waste pour into our oceans and rivers. I’m talking about things like grocery bags, drinking straws, water bottles and more. It’s now estimated that up to 51 trillion pieces of plastic c...

Worse than liquor for your liver
Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics. But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol. In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.1 That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.  And I blame...
