So, like several months back I stopped eating fish because of Fukushima making headlines about how nuclear waste is potentially contaminating the ocean, and therefore wild seafood sources. So since then I've been kinda neglecting the wild seafood/EPADHA part of my diet. My question are: Am I being irrational about avoiding seafood or better safe than sorry?
Note: My sole source of omega 3s is all coming from ALA in pretty much daily dosages of grassfed beef or bison, whatever is in green vegetables (I know they have some and I eat a lot of em), and whatever is in occassional use of olives/olive oil/avocados. I don't eat nuts which can be high in omega 6 and I don't eat eggs which although have omega 3 also have large amounts of arachidonic acid (an omega 6). So, all in all it's a pretty low omega 6 diet, but there are some. Is virtually no EPA/DHA okay, in your opinion as long as you're getting plenty of ALA and keeping omega6/plant fats fairly low?
That's a long question so thanks for getting through it and in advance for answering. I just appreciate peoples' input.
