The daily dosage used in this study was believe it or not, a single 1 gram dose, which is useless for a study with people with a lot of heart disease symptoms.

Most cardiologists have found that omega 3 helps their patients and will not take much notice of this study and continue to prescribe fish oil to their patients.

Another similar study last year in Greece came up with the same conclusions and was subjected to a robust rebuttal by LIFE extension Foundation.

this study is indeed 'fishy'. fish oil has been proven effective time and time again in preventing the risk of heart attacks. media companies only want to make a fuss just to make news and have something to talk about.

It's all about marketing!

It's known that fish oil has some influences in preventing the risk of heart attacks, but this if you use it is just an advantage, not a treatment!

However, if you want to sell something, you must create a story around it and this is the case now!:wave:
