Is fish oil on the nose? Can Hemp oil sweeten the impact?

What potential side effects linger due to toxins and heavy metals in our fish stocks?
Industry increasingly leads to toxins such as lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury ending up in the flesh of fish – these contaminates bioaccumulate and we are at risk of ingesting them.
What is the impact of this global ‘fish oil’ industry that is expected to grow to $2.63 Billion by 2020? Can we sustain the threat of over fishing? Not only for fish itself but for the added use of oil as a health supplementation.
We’ve all heard the health claims and understand the benefits of fish oil, in particular Omega 3 fatty acids and their impact on heart health, the pain and stiffness of rheumatoid arthritis, depression and dementia.
Omega 3 essential fatty acids are from a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids essential to human health and of which our bodies cannot make. We need to source them through diet or topical application.
Why not consume organic hemp seed oil?
This dark, golden-green liquid is cold pressed from the industrial hemp seed and is considered the most nutritional vegetable oil available due to its essential fatty acid profile – Omega 3, 6 & 9.
The environmental impact of hemp is positive on many fronts, not only does this plant provide healthy seed oil, it is a carbon sink, can be grown on rotation returning valuable nitrogen to the soil, is sustainable and can provide a plethora of ecofriendly products without depleting any food stocks for another animal or humans.
