New studys shows that fish oils are actually bad for you. Good luck with your 2012 goals OP


Edit: But if I were to say which one has more, the fresh Herring is better. Smoking any kind of food will dry some of the nutrients

Weak sauce.

1. a. Author explains that his main point is to get people to eat fish as the preferred source of fish oil, rather than capsule supps.
1. b. This thread is about eating (a type of) fish.

2. Author points to the DART2 study as evidence of cardiac risk potential associated w/ fish oil. This study used exclusively subjects with angina. It was, in fact, the point of the study: "To see whether mortality among men with angina can be reduced by dietary advice."

Kresser's into trendy fads (Paleo). This alone should question long-term nutritional cred.

Minimally processed fresh is likely higher for omega content -- but I'd still go with smoked as a flavour junkie.

smoked meat is moist, tender and delicious. If you enjoy the taste of smoked, then eat it. It's still healthy food plus you have to enjoy life a little..right? If you're looking for omegas try Carlsons fish oil from Sweden..I can't remember the numbers.. but before i started taking it my cholesterol was high..2 teaspoons of that a day without any other changes in my diet put the numbers at a safe level plus my good cholesterol was elevated.

If you are eating herring, you are way ahead of just about everyone on here. You are eating good stuff.

the worst part of smoking herring is keeping it lit

mmmm - herring! Wish I could get some here. My father used to work at a seaworld type place and would get herring from the dolphin's supply. It just doesn't feel the same coming from a store....

I eat smoked herring and roll mop herring. Find your data in these.
