Beluga whales are chock full of protein and vitamins

I know of one Yupik Eskimo with MS and she went through hell getting diagnosed 'cause "Eskimos don't get MS". I wonder, as traditional diets high in vitamin D are replaced by western diets if we will begin to see more MS among our Northern Native people.

"To me, it gets me more healthy," said Allen Atchak Sr., a whaling captain from Stebbins who feeds his family of seven children lots of beluga meat and muktuk. "I don't ever get sick. I don't ever get bad colds. I think it's medicine."

I've eaten whale and seal and it doesn't tast like chicken!
Taste it here.
