By the way, doctor: Should I be concerned about omega-3 fats and bleeding?
Q. I've been taking omega-3 fats and have two big bruises. Even small doses of aspirin cause me to bruise. My doctor is not concerned, but should I be?
A. Most people take omega-3 fats in the form of fish oil. While the evidence isn't airtight, I think fish oil is good for the heart. In fact, like you, I take it myself — and we have plenty of company.
