I've been eating blueberries and farmed salmon for years, because they're supposed to be superfoods. Omega 3's and anti-oxidants, however, aren't the whole story for someone who has inflammation. The SelfNutritionData website says that broiled farmed salmon is strongly inflammatory (-386) and blueberries are mildly inflammatory (-28) [on a scale where 0= neither promoting nor inhibiting inflammation].

Yet WebMD says, "Omega-3s are thought to play an important role in reducing inflammation..."

So what's going on?

addendum

Think I figured it out.

Fish, salmon, Atlantic, wild, cooked, dry heat

I've always enjoyed farmed salmon much more than wild because it was more oily. I'd imagined it was good  oil. Guess not. From now on wild it is.
