Do You Know Obesity When You See It? Most Doctors Don’t

I use the simple mirror test for obesity.  Stand stark naked sideways in front of mirror and don’t suck in your stomach.  If you don’t like what you see, then you are probably obese.

Can fish oil prevent psychosis?

If the question is treating psychosis, then the answer is probably yes assuming you are taking a therapeutic dose of omega-3 fatty acids for a lifetime.  I define a therapeutic dose as the level required to keep the AA/EPA ratio between 1.5 and 3.  And if it’s good for treating psychosis, then it makes sense that maintaining that same AA/EPA ratio will also be good for preventing psychosis.
