    Omega-3 increase risk of atrial fibrillation (afib)

    It looks like Big Pharma is just living the dream. Considering doctors left and right are recommending massive doses of omega-3 to everybody and their cat, Big Pharma selling drugs that treat afib seems like the perfect conspiracy of "sell them the poison and then the remedy". Hopefully, the...

    PUFA are potent immunosuppresive agents

    Just a quick post for all those PUFA/fish-oil lovers who keep sending me hate-mail about the "incredibly beneficial" omega-3, and even omega-6 (e.g. some athletes/bodybuilders tout arachidonic acid as a natural "anabolic agent"). As the study below discusses, all PUFA, but especially omega-3...

    "The Good Thing About Fish Oil Is. "

    29:30 Interviewer: What about fish oils? RP: It's worse.

    Why Fish Oil Fails

    Not sure if this has been posted before, but a few emails from advocates of fish oil promoted my search. I found this study, which was promptly retracted upon publishing due to the author apparently not declaring conflict of interest and misstating his educational credentials. Note that the...

    Green Pastures FCLO Fiasco

    A rift in the WAPF community More good, bad press about cod liver oil, in this case specifically the stuff from green pastures. Maybe this will turn WAPFers a bit sour towards it and get more thinking about the dangers of PUFAs...
