Have you ever wondered what fish oil does to your health and vision? Over the years, Professor Brian Peskin’s specialty has become essential fatty acids. However, he doesn’t like the term because “acid” is in it. Instead, he calls them Parent Essential Oils (PEOs). It’s the most powerful anti-inflammatory there is. It’s also a vasodilator, so it gives you increased blood flow. The benefits go on and on. Fatty acids, which can be found in fish oil, are tied to almost every biochemical reaction in your body.
Essential Fatty Acids | Fish Oil And Eye Health
What Are Essential Fatty Acids?
All anybody needs to know about this, to begin with, is that there are two essential fatty acids: parent omega-6 and parent omega-3. Your body can’t make either of them. If you don’t get them from food or from supplements, you’re very short.
What Are the Benefits of Essential Fatty Acids?
You may say, “Big deal. I’m short on these. Who cares?” For starters, every one of your 100 trillion cell membranes has 25 percent to 33 percent of these, so they are actually the brick and mortar of every cell. They also lead to making the biggest anti-inflammatory your body has, PEG1 or prostaglandin series 1.
What Is Fish Oil?
Fish oil is DHA and EPA. What people don’t realize is DHA and EPA are used very little in the body. The brain and central nervous system do use them. Outside of that, it’s next to zero, so the daily requirement is no more than 15 milligrams. The average recommendation today is 20 to 500 times over what the body actually needs.
Why Does It Have a Fishy Smell?
What everybody needs to understand is that DHA and EPA have five and six double bonds. The more double bonds there are, the faster the substance turns rancid. This is the fish smell in the supplement section of the supermarket. That is rancid oil.
How Does Fish Oil React in the Body?
It turns out DHA and EPA become rancid spontaneously at room temperature, never mind 98.6 in your body. At 70 degrees, they’re rancid. DHA and EPA are in fish to keep the membrane of the fish fluid in freezing water. You have to ask yourself if you are living in freezing water. Of course, the answer is heck no. You’re living in something way above freezing all the time.
Should I Take Fish Oil?
That is grave cause for concern because the eye nervous system in the brain has about 14 percent DHA and EPA in it. If you overdose it by taking the fish oil supplements the way they’re prescribed most commonly, you’re going to put too much into the tissue.
Professor Peskin tells us that there’s no reason to take any fish oil whatsoever. All the 21st-century science shows your body makes plenty of it from the parents. This has been one of the big things in medicine.
Professor Peskin gives us many examples and studies showing most people are looking at outdated, wrong analytical measurements. We have been given the wrong information. In the past, they made estimates that were much too high, so people thought you needed a lot of DHA and EPA, and you don’t.
Is Krill Oil Good for You?
If you ever look at a krill, it is this wicked small shrimp. It’s great food for a whale, not a human being. Humans don’t eat that. First thing when you hear where we’re getting this from, look at it. Would it be food for a human? The answer is no. It is less dangerous than the oil from fish because there are less DHA and EPA in it. It’s less of a poison if you want an answer to what it is. It’s still absolutely wrong and it’s not needed at all.
What Are the Risks of Taking Fish Oil?
Fish oil increases the risk of colon cancer. This was discovered on August 26, 2010 during cancer research. Researchers gave mice a high dose of fish oil, it made the colon cancer worse, and the lead investigator was shocked. They thought it would help the mice, but it made them worse.
Fish Oils Decrease the Immune System Response
Listen in as the professor explains how fish oils decrease the immune system response. He goes on to point out that cancer research warned about fish oil in 1998 but few listened. In Cancer Research, a cancer medical journal, the rats which were fed the fish oil had a 700 percent increase in liver metastasis. This is where cancer spreads from one organ to another. That was right off the bat. At the end of the experiment, it was tenfold. It was a 1,000 percent increase in three weeks.
Is Fish Oil Good for Heart Disease?
Professor Peskin bluntly tells us that it’s worthless in preventing heart disease in Type 1 diabetic women. If it was going to work, a diabetic is an ideal population where it has to work because diabetics have a huge propensity for cardiovascular problems. This was published June 28, 2010 in Medical News Today. Diabetics receive no benefit from omega-3. This is all 21st-century science showing fish oil failure.
In April 2012, they found fish oil is worthless in preventing heart disease. They looked at 1,000 articles and could pick 14 that were good experiments or studies because most of them aren’t. They looked at 20,000 patients. A Harvard investigator, Dr. Hu, said, “There’s no conclusive evidence to recommend fish oil supplementation for primary or secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease.”
There was a shown failure again in September 2012. They gave patients 1.5 grams a day, which was plenty. It was worthless.
What Should My EPA and DHA Levels Be?
What are the numbers they’re supposed to be? This was finally put to rest in 2009 in the Journal of Lipid Research. The DHA incorporation was a mere 5 milligrams a day. Remember that figure. It’s 5 milligrams. Look on your fish oil capsule and see how much is in there. You’ll get sick. You’re talking factors off the charts.

Taking a fish oil supplement may sound like a good thing, but nothing beats getting essential fatty acids naturally. Moreover, eyeballing fish oil dosage could lead to vision and other health problems you don’t want to have. If you have to, talk to your doctor first before considering getting a prescription or buying them over the counter.
