  • Fish Oil Study Linking Prostate Cancer Risk A Scam [View instapost]
    A good read from today's article by Dr Sears at Zone Diet in response to the recent fish oil article http://bit.ly/1b7Czfm

    * Results in the fish oil study may be statistically significant but "the differences definitely are not clinically relevant."

    * The analysis in the fish oil study is meaning less per Dr Sears' :
    "I have been very consistent over the years in stating that to have an impact on reducing inflammation, you have to have EPA levels greater than 4% of the total fatty acids, AA levels less than 9% of the total fatty acids and an AA/EPA ratio between 1.5 and 3. As you can see, the subjects in this article were nowhere close to those parameters. In fact, I would say all the subjects in this trial were identical relative to AA, EPA and the AA/EPA ratio. In other words, the analysis is meaningless."

    Doubtful study as the authors even stated "We did not evaluate the validity and reliability of our assessment of reported specialty supplement use".

    Since "Vascepa is the first and only prescription Omega-3 to be free of DHA' this study should help differentiate Vascepa as far superior drug compared to the rest of the competitors.
