omega-3 fatty acids

Every scientific paper should be required to answer a simple question before it's published. So prior to considering whether ingesting too many polyunsaturated fats (e.g., fish and foods cooked with vegetable oil) will make women lazy, TV-watching diabetics, an elementary-school query must first be asked: Does that even make sense?
Omega 3 fatty acids (from fish oil) have been touted as a cure-all for pretty much every malady on the planet. With very rare exceptions, once studied properly, they end up being useless. If this depresses you, don't take fish oil. It just failed in a trial that examined whether it could treat depression. With commentary from ACSH advisor, Dr. David Seres.

Could it be: saturated fat unproven as heart risk? What s next: drugs and alcohol also OK? Not what momma told us!
