OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID STUDIES HINDERED BY U.S. DIET RICH IN OMEGA-6

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACID STUDIES HINDERED BY U.S. DIET RICH IN OMEGA-6 fatty acids, making it difficult to demonstrate protection against cardiovascular disease in intervention studies, William Lands, PhD, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, suggested at an American Heart Association-sponsored scientific conference on omega-3 fatty acids in Houston on April 17-19. Researchers at the conference discussed a number of studies linking omega-3 intake to cardiovascular benefits such as decreased triglyceride levels, lower blood pressure, protection of normal endothelial function and other effects, although some study results were called "equivocal" or "less than compelling."
