theres almost no downsides to fish, as long as there not covered in sauces or other things

LOL what makes you think the mercury is in the skin?

FYI- sardines are NOT high in mercury. A general rule of thumb is- the bigger the fish, the more mercury.

sardines are one of the species that are lowest in mercury


the higher up in the food chain the higher the mercury content


tuna and sword fish are pretty high up hence why they should be restricted

I actually, really like sardines but boy do smell up the house. I usually just have them on some good bread or crackers. How does everyone else eat sardines? And don't even say you put them in your syntha-6 shake....

Look in the fine print. Many times, especially salmon, there is a "news bullitin" war out there. The farm-raised producers spend money in researching why wild salmon is bad for you, and vise-versa. That's how the american public is made aware of all these poisens that were always there, but noone ever really cared. Next news story you hear on the health consequenses of eating XXXXX, see who sponsered the study. And if it is some impartial university, see what name is on the science building. Some supplement companies out there have even "started" "universities" so that they can make claims about their research. It really sick how much half information is out there.

Eat those sardines in as much moderation you would any other protein source. Personally I enjoy the "prince oscar" brand, a little more expensive, but try it once, the quality is worth it.

What's to expand? Do you want to know how the kidneys work? If so, I can point you in the right direction.

I honestly thought you were joking.

Ok wait Its not actually me who is wrong, I just remember Lyle saying that and believed it, because it made sense. I just wanna know why our bodies dont adjust to sodium intake like he says it does

My statement and the statement you posted are not contradictory.

My statement and the statement you posted are not contradictory.

It was stated that if you eat much more sodium than you used to, you would, all of a sudden bloat. But if you kept eating the same amounts afterwards you would eventually regulate.
I then said, Exactly.
You then said, ....Not.

Your body is always regulating.

More sodium means more total body water, assuming free access to water. The kidneys will compensate, but they are always playing catch-up. Some regulatory mechanisms operate on shorter vs longer time frames. My point was that more sodium means more water. Does this result in a visible difference? i.e. the "bloat" that bodybuilders talk about? It depends.

Hm. Ok...But the point is that we do regulate and go back to near normal levels.

That may be your point, but go back and look at the specific statement I took issue with.
