Fish oil dramatically boosts metabolism?

    I'm sorry but that raypeat article on fish oil is so ridiculous on so many levels I don't even know where to start. I'm hoping it was some sort of satire that I just didn't get, but it really seems like the author was serious. Comparing fish oil to ionizing radiation?? Really? You do realize omega-3's are actually a natural part of our diet that mammals have been consuming in one way or another for millions of years right? They're not comparable to X-Rays! You'd think one of the thousands of epidemiology studies on omega-3's would have demonstrated some issues if eating omega-3's was just like irradiating yourself in a CT scanner.

    1) Certainly good for you for a number of reasons.

    2) Unfortunately, unless you are the one who is burning calories from squeezing the fish oil out of the fish I don't see it having any effects on one's metabolism.
