How healthy is your fish oil supplement? Not very, if your Omega-3s are mixed with pollutants like mercury, PCBs and dioxins. Fortunately for us, the Environmental Defense Fund investigated the purifying process of 75 of the most popular supplements. Make sure your brand comes from one of the companies purifying their fish oils to meet stringent safety standards.
Don’t take a supplement, but enjoy eating seafood. Check out the Environmental Defense Fund’s Complete List of Seafood Eco-Ratings to learn which options are healthiest for you and the environment.
