So look for those omega-3 oils, but limit the amount of even those to just a small amount in your diet. Read more why to choose krill oil as an omega-3 fats supplier.

    Jesus Christ, why not put “air” and “water” on the list. Either of those two things in excess will also cause inflammation and kill you.
