Ar go flax yourself

Posted by Non-Hamster on November 20th, 2010

I've been having something of an argument with a local just out of his teens and is absolutely certain that he knows everything kind of kid.  Now this kind of kid happens just about anywhere but such creatures can be especially annoying when they're natural born fourth generation residents of Nutjob Hills.

That raises the stubborn quotient and the weird factor by at least three times, possibly six in really bad cases.  In this case we were talking about dieting and weight loss and the subject came around to the benefits of flax seed.  I fully agree that there are considerable benefits to flax seed and flax seed oil, however I have something of a problem with one thing that he said.

He claimed that fish are a good source of flax seed oil and I have to argue with that one. I have never in my life heard of a fish that eats seeds of any kind at all and therefore it just doesn't make sense to me that fish would be any kind of source for flax seed oils.

Fish DO happen to be a great source of "fish oil" and omega 3 fatty acids that have considerable benefits, Salmon are particularly good sources for omega 3's.  But I'm pretty certain that even they have never been in the habit of eating seeds.

It's just not something that fish do.
