Why Are Sardines Healthier Than Salmon Does Anyone Eat Them
A friend told me that no one should eat farmed salmon and that "caught in the wild" is better for ones health. Can this be true (I don't think so)?
Let's think about it: If this were NOT true, somebody would have made it up. And you're right -- this is food fantasy from "natural healing / miracle food" websites. Salmon is salmon.

Hello doctors, another question for you all because I have no life and no friends. Are sardines healthy?
Loneliness: It's very human to feel lonely, and good to recognize it when we do. The question is what we choose to do about it.
