Fish haters can get strong bones too

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Diets high in alpha-linolenic acid may promote strong bones, the results of a small study suggest, and contrary to what many people believe, you don't need to eat fish or take fish oil tablets to raise levels of this omega-3 fatty acid.
Full article:

It's good that a mainstream article talks about getting omega-3 from walnuts and flax seeds instead of eating fish, but I thought it was odd that they never mention vegetarians. I can only imagine that the author of this article thinks vegetarians normally eat fish. It also doesn't mention mercury levels or other negative health concerns from fish.

So apparently, the writer thinks that not liking the taste of fish is the only reason not to eat it.
