"Strong Evidence" Fish Oil Improves Heart Health, Says New Review

A new scientific review conducted by Tufts-New England Medical Center concluded that consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids from oily fish and supplements can reduce the risk of cardiac and sudden death and possibly stroke.

The review was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and looked at studies involving more than 340,000 participants worldwide. They concluded getting 850mg combined of the two key Omega-3s, EPA and DHA, per day reduced the risk of all-cause mortality by 21%, cardiac death by 35% and sudden death by 45%.

This study counters a recent poorly done review published in the British Medical Journal that claimed there was no evidence linking Omega-3 intake and improvements in heart health. Frankly, you had to be living under a rock during the last twenty years to make that statement.

Studies of the health benefits of fish oil and EPA/DHA are being published contiuously. For example, in the October 2006 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, a new study found Omega-3s were more effective in preventing cardiac death than cardiac defibrillators (devices used to revive hearts that have stopped beating) over the long term.
