Fish oil: benefits versus harms

There are reports about prooxidant effects and aging accelerating effects of fish oils. Whatever we ingest has benefits as well as harms and we have to weigh the two. In case of fish oil, the benefits far outweigh the harms. 0.5-1.8 g/day is the recommended dose for healthy people. Higher doses will be harmful. See http://healthyomega3.com/fish-oil-dosage/
