    My bad, I was thinking in twelves. Therefore, it would cost you 525.00 a month living on a daily fish diet of king salmon.

    In financial terms: Based on King (Chinook) salmon providing the highest in EPA at one gram, it would take 1.4 pounds of (3.5 x 4) to equal a daily dose of Vascepa. Based on an average price of 20.00 a pound, it would costs 28.00 a day or 840.00 a month.

  • From Health.Gov.:On average, a serving of 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of any of these fish provides about a gram of omega-3 fatty acids both dha and epa. The term "salmon" encompasses a variety of salmon species. Atlantic salmon, according to Health.gov, contains the highest levels of EPA and DHA per 100 grams (3.5 ounces) at about 1.8 grams to 2.1 grams collectively, compared to other species like sockeye, chum, coho, pink or Chinook. Chum salmon has the least, at about 0.5 grams DHA and 0.3 grams EPA, followed by coho salmon with about 0.8 grams DHA and 0.4 grams EPA. Sockeye salmon has about 0.7 grams DHA and 0.5 grams EPA, and Chinook salmon is second-best at 0.7 grams DHA and 1.0 grams EPA.
    Farmed or Wild
    According to Health.gov, the difference between individual salmon species in terms of EPA and DHA content is greater than the difference between farmed and wild versions of the same species. According to their samples, a cooked serving of farmed Atlantic salmon of 100 grams (3.5 ounces) in weight, for example, contains about 1.5 grams of DHA and about 0.7 grams of EPA. In comparison, wild Atlantic salmon contains roughly the same amount of DHA and about 0.4 grams of EPA.
    Fatty Acid Formation
    The human body can form EPA and DHA from another type of omega-3 called alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. The Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University says EPA and DHA are not considered essential fatty acids, as they can be made from ALA, whereas ALA is considered an essential fatty acid, as it cannot be synthesized, so has to be ingested.
    Chemical Structures
    The omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids. This means that their molecules contain two or more double bonds between carbon atoms. The reason they are called omega-3 is because, when you count three carbons down from the end of the molecule with the methyl group, the first double bond you come to is holding carbon 3 and carbon 4 together. The human body is unable to synthesize molecules with the double

    If the FDA stated they were concerned Amarin might end Reduce-it, are they not saying they feel this study is important and may very well give the US population a new miracle drug similar to what aspirin was, or even be a better alternative to statins. They are telling the courts they believe in Vascepa and it's many qualities but did not want to approve it, and the next question for me would be "Why didn't you approve this drug you (the FDA) strongly believes will be a success?"
