Everyone wants a healthier heart, and for a while now, we’ve been told that fish oil pills are the way to get it. But there’s a problem with that. Actually, there are many problems with that. In this episode of What’s Good, Greatist’s founder Derek Flanzraich explains why fish oil pills aren’t all they’re cracked up to be and why you should probably stop taking them right now and just eat fish instead. (We know you secretly hate swallowing those pills anyway, so consider this good news.)
