Is Mackerel Harmful?

It’s really confusing. Some articles say that mackerel is really harmful for testosterone production because of high PUFA levels in it but, on the contrary, some articles say it’s really beneficial for a testosterone production
It’s really confusing to a point of being annoying.

Can you guys help me with it? Is mackerel harmful or beneficial for high testosterone production? Where can i find at least one credible source?

Thanks in advance!

I’ve never read a single article toward either point.

Anecdotes are sketchy, but when I lived in Thailand, I ate whole baked mackerel from the grocery store deli quite often, and I was in some pretty ass kicking shape and certainly had no lack of T.

If you have it blessed by a priest before eating, it becomes holy mackerel. Then you don’t have to worry about any harmful effects.
