A Fish is a gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits and they can be found in nearly all aquatic environments. They form a sister group to the tunicates, together forming the olfactores and is also eaten by human.
Is eating fish every day part of staying healthy?
We have heard that eating fish prevents heart disease, but there is a dark side to fish.
That is to say that fish contains omega-3 fatty acids which help interfere with blood clotting. These fats also help to protect the arterial walls from damage, (damage from other fats). Fish are an important resource for humans worldwide, especially as food and as such one or two weekly portions added to your diet will help you balance, if you are eating red meat or other animal fats.
At the same time we need to remember that fish can contain mercury and other harmful pollutants.
For example, Men in Finland, eat a lot of fishes like king mackerel and shark have high coronary heart disease. Toxins in fish also carry a cancer risk. Regions around the globe where fresh fish and shellfish are staples in their diet, high cancer rates are found.
Therefore, it is best to get our healthy fats and proteins from plant forms. Ground flax seed contains valuable fiber, lignans, and other phytonutrients, not just omega-3 fat. Raw sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, corn, and avocados are good for human consumption but their extracted oils may not be. When the oil is extracted from the whole food the antioxidant and phytochemical-rich protective environment is gone.
In recent times I would rather have the original ;
seeds and some sprinkle on top of my healthy greens, any day of the week, then heated and pressed into an oil that contains lipid peroxides.
