Teach a man to fish


It can be frustrating at times to balance all the competing info on what you should and shouldn't eat. Case in point: A new study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that Japanese men realize cardiovascular benefits from eating a lot of fish. So o.k, their arteries aren't as clogged, but how are their mercury levels? What kind of fish did they eat? Does Japan even have the same issue with mercury as the U.S.? And if we all eat fish, what about the whole problem of over-fishing the waters?

Sigh. Maybe someday we will just get our food from nutritionally-balanced pellets.
