Something Fishy In Costa Rica

In the Nicoya Peninsula region of Costa Rica, a Blue Zone, the question isn’t, “Where’s the beef?”

The question is, “Where’s the fish?”

“Where’s the DHA and EPA required for intelligence and longevity?”

Robert Howell (“Does this beach paradise hold the secret to long life?,” CNN, Mar. 8, 2015) wrote …

“‘I eat, but not as much … generally beef, a good cut of pork, rice and beans — four meals that we never went without in my house, thank God.’

“[Jose] Guevara [105 years old] lives in the Nicoya peninsula of Costa Rica. Blessed with sandy beaches and tropical forest, it’s something of a backpackers’ paradise. It’s also an area identified as a “Blue Zone” — one of five hotspots around the globe where people live measurably longer lives.”

Eliza Barcaly (“Eating to Break 100: Longevity Diet Tips From the Blue Zones,” NPR The Salt, Apr. 15, 2015) wrote …

“One delicious-sounding meal [Dan] Buettner was served by a 99-year-old woman (who’s now 107) consisted of rice and beans, garnished with cheese and cilantro, on corn tortillas, with an egg on top.

“As Buettner writes, ‘The big secret of the Nicoyan diet [Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica] was the ‘three sisters’ of Meso-American agriculture: beans, corn and squash.'”

Dan Buettner (The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, 2008) wrote …

“Luis [Rosero-Bixby] figured that a Costa Rican man at age 60 had about twice the chance of reaching age 90 as did a man living in the United States, France, or even Japan. He also found that if a male reached 90, he could expect, on average, another 4.4 years of life — again a life expectancy higher than in most developed countries.”

According to the same source …

“Costa Rica spends only 15 percent of what America does on health care, yet its people appeared to be living longer, seemingly healthier lives than people in any other country on Earth.”

“Where’s the fish? Where’s the fish oil?”

      Yellow Fat Disease (e-book) by Atom (© 2016)

      The world’s largest producer of fish oils boasts, “Omega’3s from Menhaden Oil Can Save Billions in Healthcare Costs.”

      There’s a better way …

      Fill all the world’s industrial incinerators with all the world’s fish oil supplements, then we really can save billions in healthcare costs.

      Government guidelines advise eating fish only 2-3 times a week so we don’t get overburdened with mercury and other toxins.

      What if this warning is a sham?

      What if it’s for a more underhanded reason?

      What if it’s to keep human Yellow Fat Disease at a subclinical, “idiopathic” level so mega-corporations can keep banking billions of dollars selling us fish oil supplements and fish products that are dangerous to our health?

      What if many diseases of “unknown cause” really do have a cause — known only to certain corporate and government insiders?

      What if fish isn’t the ideal food we’re told it is?

      What if fish oil — just-made or completely rancid — is a poison for most of us?

      What if so many tumors on so many pets are caused by polyunsaturated fatty acids?

      What if so many well-meaning veterinarians are slowly killing so many pets by recommending fish oils?

      Can cod liver oil kill your dog? Your cat? Your horse? Your chickens?
