Fish Oil Supplements with PCBs

OK, now I am totally freaked out. Lucy hasn't been eating much due to the chemo treatments and, as some of you know, I've been looking into ways to help her maintain her weight. One good strategy is high-nutrient, vitamin supplements. I have been reading a lot about fish oils, and thought they would be a beneficial thing to include in her diet.

But now, I've just stumbled across an article revealing that PCBs have been detected in fish oil supplements! This makes sense, because fish are prime targets for PCB bioaccumulation. Nature Made, Twinlab, Now Foods, Solgar and GNC are among the fish oil brands tested in this case.

Read more on this here. Now I'm even scared of vitamins! This is not good.
