New York Times Debunks Fish Oil Craze

New York Times Debunks Fish Oil Craze | Pure Life Science

A 2015 joint investigation by The New York Times and Frontline found that the supposed benefits of omega-3 fish and krill oil supplements are questionable at best (Connor, 2015). “TV host Dr. Oz helped kicked off a gold rush in sales of Omega-3 health supplements when he used his show to endorse the alleged benefits of fish oil pills that can allegedly help prevent pretty much every malady under the sun, including Alzheimer's, cancer, and even depression. He singled out Omega-3 tablets made from krill, a tiny shrimp-like creature that is the bottom of the food species….” (Hurowitz, 2017).

Unfortunately, there is a severe lack of evidence to support the claim that krill oil contributes to one’s health in any way. The disturbing part is that this massive industry, which is based on these dubious health claims, is causing the creatures we should be trying to coexist with a great deal of suffering.

The very fact we are competing with whales for food from the ocean is a commentary on the sad state of the world today. Krill populations have fallen by 80%, and with krill being their main source of nutrition, whales are washing up dead of starvation all over the world.
