Abstract

HARRIS, Lipid and Diabetes Research Center, Mid America Heart Institute of Saint Luke's Hospital, Kansas City, MO, USA, wharris@saint-lukes.org, has reviewed (48 references) the evidence for health benefits of fish oil supplementation. Abstract: Many health claims for fish oil, which contains n-3 fatty acids, are based on indirect evidence. The evidence is direct for a benefit in the prevention of coronary heart disease. The American Heart Association has recently issued guidelines for the intake of n-3 fatty acids. This review answers questions often asked by health care professionals about fish oil, notable questions about proper dosage and about the risk of ingesting pollutants such as heavy metals by eating more fish or n-3 fatty acid supplements.
