Cod liver oil is very expensive here in France. Friends asked me yesterday to bring a supply back from UK on next trip.

My youngest grandson has taken a spoon full every day and still does aged 18, when most kids give up as soon as they can get away with.

Olive oil is from olives, cod liver oil is from fish.

I hear that Moses went to Mount Olive and got a smack in the eye from Popeye.

I remember when I was little, my grandmother used to take a product called Juno Juniper.

Can't find any mention of it on the internet, does anyone remember it?

I used to take cod liver oil supplements for my skin. Worked wonders but slowly stopped using them. Only got the ones from Wilko but would highly recommend them!

I take a high dose fish oil for my arthritis, used to take Krill oil too but it became a bit of a pretentious issue down here because of it's sustainability in the antarctic.

My wife cooks her regular breakfast omlettes in olive oil, but I hate the smell of it when heated, I use rice bran oil now as it's supposed to be one of the best for you.
