Washington: A recent analysis of fish oil studies has found that omega-3 fatty acids still matter for the prevention of heart disease.The analysis done by scientists in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University also explained why so many of the studies seem to arrive at differing conclusions.The review concluded that both fish consumption and dietary omega-3 fatty acid supplements may still help prevent heart disease; that some fatty acids, from certain sources, are more effective than others; that these compounds may have enormous value for serious health problems other than heart disease; and that the very effectiveness of modern drug therapies for heart disease may be one explanation for the conflicting findings on the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids.“After decades of studying omega-3 fatty acids, it’s clear that they have value in primary prevention of heart disease,” said Donald Jump, author of the analysis, a principal investigator in the Linus Pauling Institute, and professor in the OSU College of Public Health and Human Sciences.“It’s less clear how much impact fish oils have in preventing further cardiovascular events in people who already have heart disease,” Jump said.
