We've taken a look at various links online…including a video featuring a styrofoam cup being dissolved by an apparent good quality fish oil. I'm sorry but the facts just don't add up…it's a hoax. Styrofoam is essentially a non-polar polymer that is unstable most of the time. This means that styrofoam dissolves in most oils...including gasoline, industrial glues as well as solvents such as acetone, and hydrocarbons.
Looking at this list of chemicals, I'm sure no one would like to ingest them. One has to wonder why the fish oil in the video helped with the dissolving process? It would seem that there are some impurities in the fish oil which caused the reaction as shown in the video. Quite odd really! You mentioned that our fish oil didn't dissolve the styrofoam cup you used when trying the experiment for yourself. I certainly wouldn't expect it to and I wouldn't expect any pure fish oil to do so.
The purity of our Omega 3 DHA Fish Oil far exceeds the standards set by ALL international specifications. For someone to suggest that the fish oil is not pure if it does not dissolve styrofoam is really quite ludicrous. It is a bit like saying that water is only pure if is dissolves it as well. The only way water would dissolve it is if some solvent or impurity was added. It was also suggested that a quality fish oil also dissolves cholesterol. This is also nonsense.
If it did then it would make all fish poisonous as we would surely die if our cholesterol was dissolved. Cholesterol is essential for life. Fish oil can help with cholesterol levels but it does not do so by dissolving the cholesterol. I really wonder where some of these people dream up these things. Never mind there are plenty of them on the internet. If it was true then I would be in a pretty bad way after consuming high doses of our own fish oil for almost 10 years...but, in reality I am in perfect health. Hope this helps.
