Not all fish are good for you, according to Wake Forest study
The Wake Field University research study suggests the eating of tilapia and catfish may be particularly unhealthy for patients with heart disease, asthma, arthritis, and other conditions involving overactive inflammatory responses.
In fact, Dr. Floyd H. Chilton, one of the researchers from the study, stated, "If you're in a vulnerable population such as a heart disease patient, you need to be very careful with what you're eating, and that includes everything. But when it comes to fish, there's not a more important thing you can do for heart disease than eat the right type of fish or take dietary fish oil."
Dr. Chilton adds, "There is evidence that you may harm yourself by eating the wrong kind of fish, and [farmed] tilapia and catfish are the two that fall into that category." [U.S. News and World Report: “Popular Tilapia Might Not Help Heart”]
Thus, according to the study, it might be appropriate to say that “not all fish are created equal.”
The American Heart Association has additional information on fish and omega-3 at its website “Fish and Omega-3 Fatty Acids.”
The AHA website contains information on additional types of healthy fish to eat.
