Omega-3 fatty acids useless for the heart

Many people take omega-3 fatty acids, for example in the form of tablets fish oil to strengthen the heart, but a new study by researchers from the University of Ioannina in Greece came to the conclusion that these acids do not have a curative effect. The study physicians reviewed the state more than 70,000 people who consumed omega-3 fatty acids. It turned out that they do not reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and any other risks of death. Earlier research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids can lower the level of triglycerides (fats in the blood), thereby reducing blood pressure and the risk of developing heart problems. Also fish oil capsules are useful in atherosclerosis. The American Heart Association recommends eating fatty fish at least twice a week and also discuss with your doctor your diet in order to detect the lack of it omega-3 fatty acids. However, researchers from the University of Ioannina spent 20 simple experiments with omega-3 fatty acids. The researchers analyzed 1837 heart attacks, 1490 strokes, 3993 deaths from cardiovascular disease, 1150 sudden deaths and 7044 deaths. It turned out that statistically receiving supplements people are in the same risk group, as humans, supplementation with these acids are not receiving.
