Mar 23, 2014 - 0 comments

A study of 4,203 people between the ages of 50 and 85 years found that those given a daily fish oil supplement (650 mg EPA  and 350 mg DHA) for about 5 years had no significant reduction in cardiovascular disease compared to those taking placebo. All of the participants were also taking a daily vitamin/mineral supplement as part of a study of macular degeneration (AREDS2 Study, JAMA 2014).
