More Omega 3 FFA's
Omega 3 FFA supplements are easy and inexpensive and should be used by people with cardiac risk factors, especially hyperlipemia. The benefit was on top of the benefits of Statin drugs and is thought to be from additional biologic effects of Omega 3's.
"Compared with drugs, invasive procedures, and devices, modest dietary changes are low risk, inexpensive, and widely available," writes Dr. Mozaffarian from Harvard Medical School, in an accompanying Lancet editorial, "We must curb our infatuation with downstream risk factors and treatments, and focus on the fundamental risk factors for cardiovascular disease: dietary habits, smoking, and physical activity. If the millions of heart attacks occurring each year were not a clarion call, the obesity epidemic certainly should be."
Omega 3's rule!
