In the same way that you can not reduce the complex and nuanced field of human experience to the thoughts, words memories formed from it, a meal can not be reduced to its parts, its ingredients, without losing its soul.
Perhaps nowhere in health has there been more confusion than the confusion caused by fat. The question of which fats are healthy and which fats are unhealthy has led to some pretty unhealthy diets, including extreme no fat diets that attempt to eliminate fat as much as possible with no attention to the differences between different fats
Over 50 scientific references say this important issue shall not be censored any longer
Omega 3 fatty acids in the form of fish oil pills have become a popular supplement for their heart health benefits. But fish oil is also good for your head. Research shows that omega 3 fatty acids may be beneficial for treating serious mood disorders, stress, and even alcohol abuse.
On July 10, 2013, major media headlines and news stories claimed “Too Much Fish Oil Might Boost Prostate Cancer Risk.” Wow, that sure seems fishy given all of the positive health benefits linked to fish oil intake.

A study claiming that fish oil provides no benefit in heart disease is being hyped as the final word on the issue. But is it? No, it is not. In fact, the study is absurdly blatant pseudo science, with two errors so glaring it's hard to believe they were made. Why do the researchers do it? Why do they care so little about the truth and your health?
Omega-3 fatty acids have a wide range of researched therapeutic properties, many of which are applicable to vascular disease. Omega-3 research is cited in its connection to cardiac mortality risk, peripheral artery disease and hypertension.
There is a growing awareness that the unintended, adverse health effects of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs far outweigh their purported benefits. But new research now indicates that these chemicals may even be interfering with the heart-protective effects of beneficial fatty acids in those who are on them.
