Re: New review finds no heart health benefit from fish oil supplements

NPA Senior Vice President of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Dr. Cara Welch responds: "We strongly believe this meta-analysis is a limited depiction of the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids on cardiovascular health. For example, the authors admit their results don’t take into account that more pharmaceuticals are being prescribed for heart disease, which can camouflage the cardiovascular benefit of omega-3s. Consumers should not be misled by this article."
