      Because the answers to your questions are indeed out there on the net.

      Both flax and fish oil are good. One is not necessarily better than the other. They have different properties and once you research the 2 thoroughly I'm sure you'll be able to decide which one is best for you.
      Which is cheaper? Probably flax but it will depend greatly on where/how you buy it.

                    Well I wasn't trying to make a "dumb Ass Comment" what I was tring to do was wake you up to the fact that all the answers that you want for such a simple question are out on the net...you said you researched it...yet you need to ask were to get it...who has the best price...I was not trying to ruffle your feathers ...rather trying to point out to you, that at your fingertips, is the most powerful information gathering tool in the history of mankind and few simple words inputed into any search engine would give you all the answers that you might want ...here...let me try on google.....gee in .08 of a second I got 290,000 hits! ...let's try fish oil..... WOW 8,320,000 hits...but this time it took .18 of a second ...see the info is out there ...and by the first quote of yours I see you already had come to a conclusion ...perhaps wanted validation ....
                    This girls walks up to me and says " My God you're good looking!"

                    I say" I know!"

                    She gets offended and says" WHAT?!"

                    I said " I know I am goodlooking!"

                    She said " You're also and ASSHOLE!"

                    I said " I know that too!"

                      I have rescreached both and have read great things about flax and could not find much on fish oil ,my questions are:

                      which is better ?
                      A:::both have advantages, cannot single out just one.

                      which is cheaper ?
                      A:::fish oil

                      where is the best place to purchase ?
                      A:::depends

                      I am supusto work up to 6-7 tbl spoon per day ?
                      A:::6-7 spoods per day are not needed, 1-2 , or if u are doing shakes u can add em to that but itll be relatively expensive.

                      how long can you stay on it for ?
                      A::: as long as you want no need to cycle oil.

                      I have a sensative stomach, will it upset it?
                      A::: Never had that problem, never heard of it.

                        some people are sensitive to flax oil, but the seeds seem to be fine.

                          Bikeman....I responded to your post in the Health forum...and listed some threads that a couple of members posted about oils...Egill and Blown SC put up some info that should help you a good bit.

                          Whatever product you buy, make sure it is a quality product. I believe the fish oil will be a little better, and Carlson's Fish Oil is highly recommended by several health professionals with a large following (Mercola is one).

                              flax tastes a bit like sunflower seeds. not bad. i actually enjoy some whole flax seeds on my salads. makes em taste yummy. if your gonna go with flax though i dont reccomend the oil. i would go with the ground seeds and just mix em in a shake and chug em down. the texture is funny but you get used to it
