Can you tell me are cod and haddock very healthy or is it only cod liver oil supplements that is healthy?

Cod and Haddock: Cod, because it is more of a cold water fish would be higher in omega 3 than haddock so in theory should be healthier. However, haddock would be a healthier alternative to red meat so I don't think you could go wrong with either. Try both and eat the one you like best the most.

Cod liver oil: Allergic reactions to medications, supplements or foods usually resolve within 1-3 days, unless metabolites are still in the system and haven't cleared. If allergy symptoms are severe and include difficulty breathing or swallowing, etc, see a healthcare provider. If symptoms are mild, an antihistamine should be helpful.

Ask hematologist: Cod liver oil is a good source of omega fatty acid. However, for a baby who is either breastfed or formula fed, it is usually unnecessary because both would already have omega fatty acid. If your infant has beta thalassemia, ask your hematologist if there's any need to supplement. You may not need to esp if he's growing and thriving well. ...Read more
