The latest to fall... Omega

The latest to fall... Omega 3.

The belief that omega-3 supplements could protect against cardiovascular diseases came from a couple of positive results from trials in the late 1980s and early 1990s, said Lee. “We’ve all believed it for quite a long while,” she said. “But none of the trials since have shown these results. We somehow haven’t adjusted to that data.”

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. That's how long we've been buying billion$ of dollar$ of Omega3 supplements. Without any appreciable benefit.

Now, if we hear there's a bad effect from all that extra FAT we've been swallowing, that would just be the icing on the cake!
