I have been reading into the paleolithic/primal type diet as of late, and I had a question as to what this community thinks about a stance that some of the paleo community (at least the forum I was reading) takes with regard to fish oil.
There is a belief out there that any supplementation with Omega 3 fish oil does more harm than good. There are claims that most (if not all) fish oil in pills and what-not are oxidized/rancid and that the only way to get the benefits of O3 oil is through the consumption of fish.
There are further claims that the oxidized oils that fish oils may be are identical to the types of oils and hardeners found in varnishes and laquer for home improvement.
I have some bottles of Flameout on hand, but I can't promise that they were kept "in a cool dry area" the entire time. Is the belief that these supplements are beneficial still supported by this community? What about storage of them? Should I just scrap them if I can't guarantee they're still "good"?
Sorry for the seemingly stupid question, but sometimes when I try to expand my knowledge, I get confused by the drastically differing opinions.
