How to Age Faster & Die Sooner
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) destroy the liver, kidneys, heart, brain, and eyes.
Algae are rich in EPA and DHA, and so are algae-eating fish.
So are humans eating algae and humans eating algae-eating fish.
“Experts” actually claim these poisons are essential for brain and heart health.
Google “Yellow Fat Disease” to get the other side of the story.
Fish get Yellow Fat Disease too.
So do fish that eat fish that have Yellow Fat Disease.
So do crocodiles that eat fish that eat other fish that have Yellow Fat Disease.
So do cats and dogs given EPA and/or DHA in foods or supplements
The same goes for chickens and pigs.
And cows and horses.
Tell your veterinarian to BACK OFF !!!!!
David Huchzermeyer (“Prevalence of pansteatitis [Yellow Fat Disease] in African sharptooth catfish, Clarias gariepinus (Burchell), in the Kruger National Park, South Africa,” Journal of the South African Medical Association, Aug. 2012) wrote …
“Silver carp, Hypophthalmichthys molitrix (Valenciennes), an alien invasive schooling species from East Asia (Kolar et al. 2005), were introduced into Mozambique from Cuba and also escaped into the Olifants River from South Africa. They are known to occur in Lake Massingir (Skelton 2001) and have been observed on occasion in the Olifants River in large numbers (J. Venter, SANParks, Skukuza, South Africa, pers. comm., 2012). This fish is a specialised plankton feeder that by preference feeds off phytoplankton [algae] and is an important consumer of cyanobacterial blooms (Kolar et al. 2005), a niche no indigenous South African fish species occupies (P. Skelton, South African Institute of Aquatic Biodiversity, Grahamstown, South Africa, pers. comm., 2012). Such blooms have been observed near the inlet to Lake Massingir (D. Pienaar, SANParks, Skukuza, South Africa, pers. comm., 2009). Phytoplankton naturally contains large quantities of α-linolenic acid and other n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, in particular eicosapentaenoic acid C20:5n-3 (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid C22:6n-3 (DHA) (Steffens 1997). Intake of these fatty acids is reflected in the adipose tissues of silver carp. In one study, these two fatty acids were found to constitute up to 5.28% and 3.41% of body fat triacylglycerols respectively (Buchtová & Ježek 2011). The n-6 and n-3 fatty acids derived from linoleic and α-linolenic acids respectively are essential fatty acids that cannot be synthesised by animals (Steffens 1997). The relative abundance of these fatty acids in the diet of animals is reflected in the composition of their fat tissues (Hoffman & Prinsloo 1995; Steffens 1997). Compared with the fat of farmed crocodiles, a much higher intake of n-3 fatty acids was reflected in the fat of crocodiles in the Olifants Gorge (Osthoff et al. 2010). In another study, Huchzermeyer et al. (in press) demonstrated that the mesenteric fat of catfish with pansteatitis from the Olifants Gorge showed a similarly high inclusion of n-3 fatty acids, whereas mesenteric fat of healthy catfish from the same site reflected a lower inclusion of n-3 fatty acids.”
Folks often ask me, “If I can’t get my DHA from algae or fish oil, where can I get it?”
I often reply, “That’s like asking, ‘If I can’t get my mercury from mercury ore, where can I get it?'”
Mercury is mercury is mercury, whether you absorb it from cinnabar, corderoite, or livingstonite.
DHA is DHA is DHA, whether you absorb it from algae, fish oil, or krill oil.
