A little reminder why eating fish is good for you.

Fish really is the cure all food,   Its in the fatty Omega 3 fish gives you.
Fish it seems is the answer to a healthy brain and body.  Fish also supposedly rids of split border line personality, mood swings and harbors against anger or depression, migraine headaches and is good for your eyes and memory. You can also loose weight regardless of its fatty Omega- 3, and is good for the heart, helps prevent breast cancer apparently and menstrual cramps, lowers blood pressure and raises good  cholesterol. If there’s a bunch of pills on the market you could not afford, or you simply reject taking any kind of drugs, fresh fish or fish oil capsules is the answer, and is probably the only gel capsule your need on your shelf. Now go-- get that tin of salmon and make yourself a sandwich, instead of your usual burger. (Read up also about Omega- 3 and diabetics).
I would love to hear from anyone who is trying this stuff without an angle to it, who might like to share it on this site. Simply E-mail me, and I’ll post it some time. We all need to be reminded of the goodness of fish, and continually promote its awareness from generation to generation.  Fish is a food substance so many of us seem not to eat in this fast food, fast pace world. And for the skeptics, I suggest fish until one can prove otherwise. Oh yes, and as I understand we need plenty of it in a week, twice a week or more is good, so stack up on lots of tins of salmon and any other fish. However, fresh fish like King salmon. Herring and Mackerel for grilling, baking or boiling is far better. (When buying fresh fish, eyes of the fish should be bulging out and clear and under the gills should be a healthy pinkish).  Salmon is mostly mentioned due to having the highest content of the fatty Omega –3 goodness, and only has 15 percent of fat really, which is still less than your burger and some poultry. So what’s in your sandwich today? Isn’t it nice to know your eating a food that really IS good for you?
