I wonder if the side effects of fish oil are caused from toxins (mercury,PCB's) in the fish? Or like peanuts from the chemistry used in growing . A person should closely monitor blood viscosity. In my opinion anything natural ie. alfalfa , cayenne , ginger , etc can thin your blood if over done , most of us think a little is good a lot more will be better right? Use a little and be patient let your body heal . Merry Christmas to all
