Can cod liver oil good for hepatitis b patients?

I don't think so: Some physicians believe that fish oils are helpful for inflammation and/or blood lipid problems. I have no reason to believe that this will specifically help hepatitis b though it could help the joint disease. The obviously-false internet claim that it "cures hepatitis b" is sucker bait; if it did, some of the nih piranhas would have made their reputations by proving it. ...Read more

Drank whole bottle of scotts emulsion cod liver oil?

Drank whole bottle of scotts emulsion cod liver oil?

Not good idea.: Gi upset, nausea vomiting and diarrhea from the fish oil portion. Scott's and emulsion makes this sound as though it was not a medicinal but agricultural agent. In that case it may contain something other than cod liver oil and the bottle may be larger than that for medicinal use. I would call poison control.

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. Choose the second place winner over red meat. ...Read more
