    So is omega-3 good or bad?

    fish consumers in the US may have more diabetes, but what type of fish are they eating? Fish sandwiches at McDonald's? My ancestors eat fish all the time and they don't have type II diabetes. Evidence TRUMPED. Interesting studies about the n-3 FAs and pancreatic beta cells though, i'll have to check that out. I'd also like to know how having adequate selenium, which detoxifies a lot of pollutants, has an effect on these pollutants and diabetes risk. DON'T EAT CHEAP FISH-LIKE PRODUCTS. But FISH, is a form of subsistence our species has relied on for MILLENNIA with no health problems. Pollutants are THE ONLY reason why fish consumption should be contraindicated, not n-3 fatty acids . . .

    I'm calling Greger out on this one Omega-3 fatty acids increase insulin sensitivity, which helps to lower blood sugar levels. In the long term, this reduces insulin resistance, lowering blood sugar levels. Fish oils also reduce inflammation, which is a major factor in diabetes. so why the concern with fish? why not flax seed? Weight gain, especially abdominal fat along with little or no exercise increases the risk for Type II diabetes. In addition, these foods may increase the risk: Fast Foods: two or more fast food meals per week increases diabetes risk Trans Fats: trans fats increase inflammation, insulin resistance and elevate blood sugar levels Soft Drinks: each soft drink increases diabetes risk 60 percent.

    Doctor you are loosing my respect. Fish is in all long lived cultures like  the Greek islands, Okinawa, rural China ( the real China Study diet) and many other healthy long lived cultures. All in all its not the fish but the contamination and even plant foods are contaminated like arsenic in rice. So please don't over do it with your studies.

Who believes the studies that DON't include SUGar consumption as factor when dealing w/diabeties, are you kidding me? Metabolic syndrome (diabeties, heart disease, high blood pressure, inflamation [whole body sys.], and CANcer) is driven by, you guessed it, SUGar. YouTube: Suger; The Bitter Truth.

    As the oceans are becoming more toxic through pollution like oil spills and radiation even heavy metals from the industrial complex, eating fish is becoming more risky. Tuna now days has twice the amount of mercury than ten years ago. Btw Monsanto experimented with agent orange in forests of Puerto Rico prior to using it in Vietnam. Now days they use depleted uranium in tank shells to reduce the life expectancy of people in the world (soldiers like surveillance).

    Have you seen this study? Any thoughts? I would like you to more frequently address studies which don't support your viewpoint, and to explain why you discount their findings. Otherwise, it can seem like cherrypicking of studies–you report on a bunch of studies that say meat and saturated fat are bad for you, but others report on studies that say they are not. I'm not saying I don't believe you, I'm just saying it would be nice to hear more about why you don't lend much credence to studies such as the above.

    I'm a believer in sardines, and I absolutely loooove fish, it's just too good. Sardines are vegetarian fish and have minimal amounts of mercury within them. They're loaded with nutrients and have important omega 3s. These findings perplex me because if you look at societies that eat fish everyday they don't have diabetes in the masses. So I don't really know what to make out of this.

If you test me for diabetes you wouldn't even know I am one unless I told you. Your facts are wrong. What's sad is, you have people believing this nonsense. Fish is good for you period. Easy on the tuna though. Too much salt. Eating healthy and kicking diabetes ass everyday.

    I don't think your information is 100% accurate regarding fish. I live in Norway and here fish is regarded as some of the healthiest foods. Eating fat fish such as salmon, mackerel and trout once a week and is rich in vitamin D and omga 3 acids. Surely these fish are better than such as cod, pike and other non-fatty fish? I eat sardines with olive oil, which even helps me with getting enough calcium (from the bones in these tiny fish). What are your thoughts on this?

    Guys relax.. although it seems like were all doomed to just eat air with all these findings, I think this analysis needs to be more accurate. Just eating fish twice a week? I think the kind of fish, it's origin, and yes that's also important in toxicity levels, you're consuming has a HUGE impact on your body ( sardines vs tuna). I think it could be a little misleading but at the same time if you are eating farmed or atlantic salmon you are eating a range of toxins and parasites so I can see how eating that just twice a week can promote diabetes. Your liver just takes a beating every time you eat shitty fish. Do your research, be very picky about the fish you eat.

    I know this is an old video but does the study look at the consumption of fish with carbs? (Like rice for example) or fish on it's own? There are way too many variables in this study to be able to conclude anything. I cured my type 2 diabetes by eating a low carb, moderate protein and high fat diet with intermittent fasting ( 6:1).
    This study seems to be very biased.

    How does anyone reference this man as a credible source to back up vegan claims when this video exists? Seriously. The highest fish consuming countries live the longest, have lowest incident of heart disease; type 2 diabetes and cancer. The vegan agenda is highly obvious. Even if something that comes from an animal is 100% proven in the most unbiased, thorough study known to man to reverse cancer. Vegans would still deny it. And reference this quack Michael Gregor.
