omgitspres--

I have hairy arms and legs...as does my father! lol Asian countries are not free of acne and their health problems. When I was in China, I saw a number of teenagers with their share of bad skin. Although, in China, much like many countries in the world now, are inundated with Western style restaurants (McDonalds, KFC), so I'm sure that it's having that impact.

Buying fresh fish and eating it properly is not easy and not cheap. You also have to be wary of the levels of toxins and mercury in fish etc.

Lots of research to do!
Life is but a breath. Here is my story...

Watch out for the iodine in the seafoods (kelp) that is so often used in Japanese cooking.

In the US, doctors strongly caution against eating fish for women who want to have children, because of harmful toxins in fish. The only "safe" fish to eat is "wild Alaskan salmon."

Stay away from tuna and anything that says "Atlantic" or farm-raised fish. I saw a number of reports on this topic; there was a doctor on Larry King Live talking about it.

Eat some fish, because it's good for you, but eating a lot of it could be harmful. On farms they put stuff into the water to make the fish bigger, and other bodies of water are dirty with all kinds of crap the factories dump in there.

I don't remember where exactly I heard this, but I do remember that the sources were reliable. Please do some research into this, and ask a few doctors and nutritionists, it could be a big deal.
