What You Need To Know About Eating Fish And Taking Fish Oil


Fish and seafood is one of the best dietary sources of protein around. It is also chock-full of nutrients like iodine, selenium, and vitamins D and B12. But the biggest health benefit of fish comes from omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s lower our risk of cancer, type-2 diabetes, autoimmune disease, depression, and inflammation. They are essential for the functioning of every cell in our bodies. But many of us do not consume enough of them. And there is so much confusion about supplementing with fish oil as well as what the best types of fish to eat are.

Dr. Hyman recently sat down with Paul Greenberg to discuss these topics and how to know if fish oil supplementation is right for you.

Paul is the bestselling author of Four Fish, American Catch, and The Omega Principle. A regular contributor to the New York Times and many other publications, Mr. Greenberg is the writer-in-residence at the Safina Center, a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation and the recipient of a James Beard Award for Writing and Literature. He appears frequently on American and international radio and television programs and is the featured correspondent and co-writer of the 2017 PBS Frontline documentary The Fish On My Plate which, along with his TED talk, has reached millions of viewers.
