from "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," by Michael Pollan


PART II : What Kind of Food Should I Eat?
(Mostly plants).

RULE #32 - Don't overlook the oily little fishes.

Wild fish are among the healthiest things you can eat, yet many wild fish stocks are on the verge of collapse because of overfishing. Avoid big fish at the top of the marine food chain - tuna, swordfish, shark - because they are endangered, and because they often contain high levels of mercury. Fortunately, a few of the most nutritious wild fish species, including macherel, sardines, and anchovies, are well managed, and in come cases are even abundant. Those oily little fish are particularly good choices. According to a Dutch proverb, "A land with lots of herring can get along with few doctors."

"Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."
