"Since childhood, I have eaten tuna fish salad. Until I was in my twenties, however, it never occurred to me, a middle-class New Yorker, that "tunafish" was a type of fish like any other, labelled "tuna." It never occurred to me that one might have substituted any other fish for tuna and have, for example, bluefish salad or sword-fish salad instead. Of course, had I been asked 'What are all the ways you could prepare bluefish?" I might have come up with bluefish salad."

"Fish fats are best obtained from eating fish itself, rather than fish oil capsules, because you can't control the source of the fish when you take capsules, and unfortunately there is a significant risk of hazardous toxic contaminants in much of the fish available today. Saltwater fish is less likely to be contaminated by pollutants than freshwater fish (and saltwater fish, from the coldest waters, also tend to be the richest in omega-3 fats). Salmon, sardines, herring, and mackerel are good sources."

"It never occurred to me that one might have substituted any other fish for tuna and have, for example, bluefish salad or sword-fish salad instead. Of course, had I been asked 'What are all the ways you could prepare bluefish?" I might have come up with bluefish salad. But the surprise I felt when I was first served fish salad that was not tuna made me feel foolish for not having realized sooner that tuna is just one of many fish. It also made me realize the strength of these mindsets."

"There was a paradise of beautiful gardens, with jewels in the rocks, waterfalls, and a large pool with a silver fish swimming in it. The fish stepped out of the pool and became a silver Queen. She said, "I am only silver in my fluidity and so you must stay fluid." She took my hand and led me into the water where I swam through silver water, becoming like the fish. I stepped out of the water and she poured silver fluid into me through the top of my head, reminding me of the abundance in my life. She urged me to pour fluid silver into myself so as not to forget abundance."

"To add variety to your healthy-heart PowerFoods plan, enjoy fish and shellfish several times a week. fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to lower triglyceride levels, increase HDL levels, prevent blood clots, and improve blood pressure. Fatty fish—tuna, salmon, bluefish, mackerel, herring, and sardines—are the best source of omega 3. Shellfish are very low in saturated fat, so enjoy shrimp, lobster, mussels, clams, and scallops, but hold the butter, cream sauce, and rich stuffing. Boiled, broiled, steamed, and stir-fried are the preferred cooking methods."

"Cold-water fish offers the next best source of protein. Salmon, mackerel, sardines, and tuna not only give you a good source of protein but also much-needed sources of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which I will discuss more under fats. Again, be aware of toxins these fish may contain due to industrial pollution of our waters. Mercury poisoning as well as many other toxins are increasing in all fish species. Shellfish and larger saltwater fish are the worst. Knowing the source of the fish is helpful. Fowl are the next best source of protein."

"Concentrated fish oils. These are the fatty liquids expressed from certain cold-water fish, including salmon, mackerel, sardines, cod, blue-fish, herring, and tuna. The omega-3 fish oils are the most popular form of the essential fatty acid supplements. Most contain 1,000 to 1,250 mg offish-oil concentrate, representing an EPA range of 180 to 360 mg and a DHA range of 120 to 240 mg. Look for products such as MaxEPA, SuperEPA, EPA Pure, Omega-3 EPA, Essential Fatty Acid Complex, and Balance Plus. Cod liver oil. This is a fish oil rich in EPA and DHA."

"Discussing the investigators' decision to broaden the definition of schizophrenia, psychologist Alvin Pam observed that "with a bigger net, they caught more fish."3 Expanding on this analogy, one might note that, according to Kety and colleagues' logic, seagulls and crabs caught up in the net would be classified as fish, if the total catch were significantly greater than that of a control group of fisherman. In his 1938 family study, Kallmann found an "enormous increase" in mortality from tuberculosis among the children of schizophrenia patients."

"Again, be aware of toxins these fish may contain due to industrial pollution of our waters. Mercury poisoning as well as many other toxins are increasing in all fish species. Shellfish and larger saltwater fish are the worst. Knowing the source of the fish is helpful. Fowl are the next best source of protein. Chicken and turkey are most favorable because the fat accumulates on the outside of the meat rather than on the inside. Since most toxins found in these animals accumulate in the fat, you can easily avoid them by removing the skin and fat from the meat."

"The plankton are eaten by fish, which make them into long chain n3 fatty acids, converting 18 carbon n3 into 20 and 22 carbon n3 fatty acids. These are the fish oil n3 PUFA, which are the most biologically active within the n3 family. When people refer to omega-3s, they're usually referring to the long-chain omega-3s in fish oil. More is learned about that group every day. Fish consumption, and the associated omega-3 fatty acid intake, is very beneficial to metabolism."

"Eat a healthy diet: • Cut down on red meat in favor of chicken, fish (including fatty fish at least once a week)*, and vegetable proteins. • Eat at least a pound of vegetables and fruits every day. • Limit salt to less than a teaspoon a day. • Cut down on sugar. • For cooking, use vegetable oils such as canola and olive oil. • Minimize intake of saturated fats and cholesterol."

"Reaumur devoted all his life to the study of "insects," which at that time meant all invertebrates, everything that was obviously "lower" than lizards, frogs, and fish. In studies of crayfish, lobsters, and crabs, Reaumur proved the claims of Breton fishermen that these animals could regrow lost legs. He kept crayfish in the live-bait well of a fishing boat, removing a claw from each and observing that the amputated extremity reappeared in full anatomical detail."

"While some believe that it's the omega-3 fatty acids in fish that protect your heart, others speculate that other fish proteins or micronutri-ents may be the key. Perhaps that's why there is very little good data to show that taking fish-oil supplements is beneficial. Vary your seafood selection: • Tuna, salmon, and mackerel—fish high in omega-3 fatty acids • Shrimp, oysters, and clams—also high in omega-3s but with differing proteins • Cod, perch, halibut—low fat And remember to broil, boil, or poach your fish."

"People up and down the street all ate the same sorts of meals on a reassuringly regular rhythm (pasta on Tuesdays, fish on Fridays, etc.), and standoffishness or one-upmanship among neighbors was explicitly frowned upon. "The local priest emphasized that when preoccupation with earning money exceeded the unmarked boundary, it became the basis for social rejection." For this reason, "despite the affluence of many, there was no atmosphere of 'keeping up with the Joneses' in Roseto."10 All these factors together, Wolf and Bruhn concluded, were the secret to the town's heart-healthiness."

"One study showed that people who eat fish once a week slow the yearly rate of cognitive decline by 10 percent. The Framingham Heart Study followed nine hundred people for nine years and found that those who ate three meals with fish oil per week were half as likely to develop dementia. Omega-3s lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and neuronal inflammation, and they elevate the immune response and BDNF levels."

"The best dietary source that contains this vital ratio is flaxseed oil, the plant version of the same cholesterol-lowering Omega-3 fatty acids for which fish and fish oil are famous, making it a good alternative for people who don't like fish. Flaxseed also contains lignans, powerful antioxidants that stop cells from becoming cancerous.12 Omega-6 fatty acids are also found in vegetable oils, most grains, and beans. Other essential fats that exist in the Omega-3 group are found in fresh walnuts, pumpkin seeds, fish (salmon, bluefish, trout, mackerel, tuna, and sardines), and canola oil."

"Animal Protein Eat four- to six-ounce servings of fresh, unbreaded, unfried, oily, non-allergenic fish two to five times a week (salmon, Alaskan halibut, orange roughy, sardines, Chilean sea bass, trout, and mackerel, e.g.). Large fish such as shark and swordfish are reported to contain high concentrations of mercury and should therefore be avoided. Weekly servings of shellfish, such as shrimp, crab, and lobster, can be very beneficial. Yet, you should be aware that shellfish are common allergens and may also accumulate pollutants."

"A breath that smells distinctly like fish may be an all-too-obvious sign that your colleague is taking a lot of fish oil supplements for the omega-3 fatty acids. But it may also be a serious danger sign of kidney failure. FECAL BREATH If people say you have shitty breath, don't be too quick to punch them in the mouth. Fecal breath can signal conditions that, not surprisingly, are related to the stomach and diges- SIGN OF THE TIMES ®ln 1921,the Listerine Company launched an advertising campaign to help boost the sale of their liquid antiseptic."

"And the fish should not be from fish farms. Those fish typically do not eat a diet of marine algae, and thus do not store the Omega-3 fatty acids that come from that natural food source. Of course, there are Omega-3 fish oil supplements, but care should be taken to choose the highest quality fish oil products. You simply do not want to be consuming unnecessary oxidized products, so the supplements should have extremely low peroxidation levels. In addition, when you consume a beneficial fatty acid you must always keep in mind that you are consuming a fuel for free-radical formation."

"Industrial and agricultural chemicals in our waterways are absorbed by fish through their skin into the bloodstream, and end up in the muscles. As large fish eat smaller fish, the contamination becomes more concentrated. Salmon, whitefish, and swordfish often contain high levels of PCB and other pesticides. Chicken protein is no prizewinner, either. Chicken meat causes hormonal imbalances in both genders, and may increase the risk of breast or prostate cancer. For more information on the damaging effects of animal proteins, read John Robbins' Diet for a New America."

"Forego the fish. Some fish can be toxic even when cooked. Sea bass, amber jack, grouper, red snapper, and tropical reef fish are occasionally poisonous if they have been caught among the reefs rather than in the open sea. Avoid puffer fish and barracuda at all times. The areas at highest risk for contaminated fish are the West Indies, the Indian Ocean, and the tropical Pacific Ocean. • Bring your meds."

"Suddenly I notice brightly colored fish, about six of them, swimming through the air, about six feet off the ground! At first I conclude, "They can breathe and live in our environment just like we do in theirs." Then I see even more fish swimming by in the air and the incongruity strikes me. I realize, "I'm dreaming! This is a lucid dream!" I decide not to run off or go flying, but wonder, "Well, what should I do?" I think about trying to find God, but realize that I have tried that before with limited success."

"About 90% of food allergies are caused by soy, shellfish, peanuts, milk, eggs, wheat, tree nuts and fish. The most common action taken to prevent food allergy reactions is to avoid the allergen. However, in a single year, 236 food products were recalled because they contained an allergen not listed on the label or were contaminated with an allergen. Avoidance of a food allergen may not be enough—a means of prevention or treatment is needed. Food allergies are related to the permeability of the intestinal lining."

"McKone began inputting variables for his imaginary chemical, each with a numeric value dropped into a column: numbers of fish; concentration of PBLX in the water; concentration of the substance in each fish; how much fish from that area a person may be expected to eat; the solubility of PBLX; its potential to evaporate; how far it might travel. The lineup of variables seemed potentially endless. A curve rose on an accompanying graph with each changed input."

"Fish Oils Despite the clinical utility of flaxseed oil, it is not biologically equivalent to other types of omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fish.1? fish oils are preferable because they contain biologically more potent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These types of omega-3 EFAs have a wide spectrum of neurobehavioral effects,16 and might be more efficacious than flaxseed oil for the treatment of anxiety."
