    Man, why don't fish get clogged arteries? I mean, alot of bigger ocean fish dwell in salty waters and salt is supposedly really bad for your heart and clogs arteries. Well...fish take the oxygen they need out of the water and need the water to survive...why don't fish get clogged arteries and die like humans do from too much sodium? Interesting theory, eh? Or just weird...

    Sodium doesn't clog arteries, but it does raise blood pressure. :)

    but fish is so extremely healthy... That balances out. Fish is the healthiest meat you can eat... so maybe that's why they never have clogged arteries... they're just nature's little health machines...
