> Wow, Larry--
> I like that you have a trucker's perspective on fish oil freshness. That's so cool. It's so fun to learn what the other babblers do!

I was a trucker before I became a chemist, and as I recover from my breakdown, I find that a little trucking helps pay the bills. I don't see myself doing it much longer.

> Well, then. I think I'll try the fish oil I got from good 'ol Walgreens. I've heard that the cod liver oil with lemon flavor is a bit more pleasant though. (doesn't it sound icky?!)

Katy, cod liver oil has too many vitamins in it for it to be a routine source of omega-3 fatty acids. Fish oil might better be called "fish body oil". Liver oils have high concentrations of fat-soluble vitamins, which your body will store in your own liver. Too much in the liver, and your liver starts to die. Small amounts are necessary, but too much is toxic.
