    Default Fish Oils Don't Protect Against Heart Disease - But Then They Do

    Bryan Hubbard
    July 23 2018

    For the third time in as many years, a major research group has concluded that fish oil supplements don't protect against heart disease or stroke—and, in the same week, another study has concluded that eating fish, and their long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, prolongs life and lowers the risk of a heart attack.
    The headline-grabbing study comes from the Cochrane group, which took another look at 79 previously-published studies that involved more than 112,000 people. They found there was no difference in the risk of death or heart disease between people who were taking omega-3 supplements and those who weren't.

    To balance things out, there's this "Are Cochrane Reviews Truly 'Independent and Transparent'?" right here at HH. https://www.hawkeshealth.net/communi...light=Cochrane

    Well, it's fairly well documented that omega-3 fish oil is a blood thinner. In fact, most doctors in their advance surgery preparation will ask patients if they're on blood thinners, including omega-3 supplements, because thinner blood can be linked to excessive bleeding during surgery. A good number of cardiologists believe thick, high viscosity blood makes the heart work harder and thicker blood is linked to high blood pressure. So, if something thins the blood, like omega-3 fish oil, I struggle to see why it would not protect against heart disease. This study seems to defy logic.

    My BP is 110/60. I take fish oil daily and eat salmon and sardines fairly often; I also take Nattokinase to scrub my blood vessels, and vitamin C with L-lysine and L-proline (the Pauling/Rath Protocol) to keep blood vessels supple. Whatever I finally die from, I doubt it will be heart disease.
