Mercola = Health Fraud

By Bob McCauley, ND

mercola-krillFish oil found to cause cancer, which is why ALL my food comes from the plant world, and NOT the animal world.  This is no surprise whatsoever.  Let’s see if the famous Dr. Mercola mentions anything about this since he dr-mercola-antarctic-krill-oil-60ct-650promotes fish oil so heavily.     But krill oil is great, so he says.   Fish oil “heals the brain“, “protects the heart” and “combats ADHD“.  Not to mention that Alaskan Salmon is one of the top 10 mercola-virgin-salmon-oilsuperfoods.  Are you still listening to this guy?  Hope not.

This Mercola fish product is “Virgin”. Wow!  I’m impressed and I don’t even know what “virgin” fish oil is.   Must come from female salmon virgins. Not sure.  !?!?!

There is NOTHING in the way of nutrients found in the animal world that we can get from the plant world.  Where do the fish get their fat?  Mainly from algae, which is why I do the same.  The higher we eat on the food chain, the higher the concentration of toxins we consume.

    I am a fan of yours and I am also a fan of Dr. Mercola. Quite frankly, you both hawk your products. Dr. Mercola provides excellent information as do you. I don’t find the article persuasive. It reads “fish oils “may” cause cancer.” Then, it clearly appears to be anti-supplement and I’ve seen the difference with supplements. Granted, there isn’t anything that can replace a healthy diet and clean water but Vitamin C has helped me avoid expensive doctor visits. I believe I didn’t catch the flu last winter due to supplements and herbs. I like your passion but I think it’s a little too confrontational sometimes.

    Hallelujah Bob. I completely agree. These fish and krill oil supplements are complete nonsense. If someone truly requires to increase their Omega 3, Deva Nutrition provides a wonderful “delayed release” algae oil that contains 500 mg of micro-algae oil per vegan capsule. Each capsule provides 140mg of DHA and 80mg of EPA. Personally, I take 5-8 of these each day, along with other forms of algae, spirulina, chlorella, and marine phytoplankton. These new algae oil supplements may provide more concentrated amounts of DHA and EPA per capsule as they continue to evolve. The fact that human beings can thrive via a plant-based lifestyle is a wonderful gift from the ancient architect. When we refuse to align ourselves with this natural order, we are literally throwing this precious gift back into the abyss of the infinite mysterious–with serious consequences for all who share this planet with us.

    Hi Bob,

    The validity of this “study” on fish oil has been questioned by many. It is very easy to slant a study to get the outcome one desires. I believe there are questions to be asked.
    1. Who sponsored this study?
    2. What information is left out?
    3. What do we know about the health of the participants?
    4. Are these only Americans or is this worldwide?

    I am sure there are many more questions that could be asked. A grain of salt is often needed with the latest media-trumpeted study. Nice comments Susan. I agree with your points.
