Prof. Angel Catalá, PhD., specializing in biological chemistry and membrane oxidation reviewed this article prior to publication for the publisher. He was a fellow at N.I.H., also having served as full Professor of Biochemistry—publishing over 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals and several chapters in books and has edited four books on membrane lipids. Upon the article's acceptance, he stated, "The author presents in his manuscript a severe warning to consume fish oils. This warning is important and therefore the manuscript deserves publication." Based on this professor's recommendation my article was published in Journal of Lipids, but was later retracted. The retraction had nothing to do with the accuracy and importance of the article. I am posting the article so YOU can judge its validity. -Brian S. Peskin
"Details that could throw doubt on your interpretation must be given, if you know them. If you make a theory,
for example, and advertise it, or put it out, then you must also put down all the facts that disagree with it."
—Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning physicist.
I have been advocating discontinuing fish oil supplementation in favor of a biologically appropriate ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 for years. I have spent many years in the wilderness making my argument in print and at medical conferences around the world. Successfully withstanding continual attacks by those blindly defending the status quo, I am happy to report the changing of the status quo as it relates to fish oil and heart health.
I am often asked how my EFA recommendations differ from others. The answer is simple but very significant. The term "Essential Fatty Acids" is misused so frequently that I was compelled to coin a new phrase, Parent Essential Oils (PEOs). For scientific proof of the correctness of my PEO recommendations from the American Heart Association and others in 2009/2008, click here. This is life-science you need to know.
