Dont feel like clicking. Is it saying Omega-3 has no benefits or that fish oil have such a small level of it that the effect is non existent?

PETA probably paid the researchers. 

All those ‘pasta is healthy’ studies are paid for by pasta companies.

My joints, blood pressure, cholesterol, and mood say otherwise 

Thousands of years of populations understanding fish oil benefits say otherwise 

Hundreds of thousands of testimonials say otherwise 

Dozens of studies ( of which I’ve linked almost all of them over the years and gone over what they mean, including their limitations ) say otherwise 

in other words: get fucked you vegan puff and bake a vegan streudal and keep your mouth shut about things you’re ignorant about since you may actually harm someone with your bullshit

I can tell a marked difference in my inflammation levels when I'm on it and off of it.

If it's a placebo, it's still working.

I'm staying on it.

From the article:

“Consuming omega-3 fatty acids tend to decrease triglyceride levels, which have a positive health effect, but they also decrease HDL, which can have a negative health effect. So what is the net effect on balance? That is what the review sought to determine. They found:

Meta?analysis and sensitivity analyses suggested little or no effect of increasing LCn3 on all?cause mortality (RR 0.98, 95% CI 0.90 to 1.03, 92,653 participants; 8189 deaths in 39 trials, high?quality evidence), cardiovascular mortality (RR 0.95, 95% CI 0.87 to 1.03, 67,772 participants; 4544 CVD deaths in 25 RCTs), cardiovascular events (RR 0.99, 95% CI 0.94 to 1.04, 90,378 participants; 14,737 people experienced events in 38 trials, high?quality evidence), coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality (RR 0.93, 95% CI 0.79 to 1.09, 73,491 participants; 1596 CHD deaths in 21 RCTs), stroke (RR 1.06, 95% CI 0.96 to 1.16, 89,358 participants; 1822 strokes in 28 trials) or arrhythmia (RR 0.97, 95% CI 0.90 to 1.05, 53,796 participants; 3788 people experienced arrhythmia in 28 RCTs). There was a suggestion that LCn3 reduced CHD events (RR 0.93, 95% CI 0.88 to 0.97, 84,301 participants; 5469 people experienced CHD events in 28 RCTs); however, this was not maintained in sensitivity analyses – LCn3 probably makes little or no difference to CHD event risk. All evidence was of moderate GRADE quality, except as noted.

Increasing ALA intake probably makes little or no difference to all?cause mortality (RR 1.01, 95% CI 0.84 to 1.20, 19,327 participants; 459 deaths, 5 RCTs),cardiovascular mortality (RR 0.96, 95% CI 0.74 to 1.25, 18,619 participants; 219 cardiovascular deaths, 4 RCTs), and it may make little or no difference to CHD events (RR 1.00, 95% CI 0.80 to 1.22, 19,061 participants, 397 CHD events, 4 RCTs, low?quality evidence). However, increased ALA may slightly reduce risk of cardiovascular events (from 4.8% to 4.7%, RR 0.95, 95% CI 0.83 to 1.07, 19,327 participants; 884 CVD events, 5 RCTs, low?quality evidence), and probably reduces risk of CHD mortality (1.1% to 1.0%, RR 0.95, 95% CI 0.72 to 1.26, 18,353 participants; 193 CHD deaths, 3 RCTs), and arrhythmia (3.3% to 2.6%, RR 0.79, 95% CI 0.57 to 1.10, 4,837 participants; 141 events, 1 RCT). Effects on stroke are unclear.

The bottom line of all that is that there was no clear health benefit from consuming omega-3 fatty acids in food or supplements. There was a suggestion of a possible benefit from LCn3 on cardiac events, but this did not hold up when they took into consideration the quality of the evidence. The better trials, with less risk of bias, tended to be negative.”

Figazi, fugazi, It's a whazy. It's a woozie. It's fairy dust. it doesn't exist. It's never landed. It is no matter. It's not on the elemental chart. It's not fucking real.

Why are you linking a study on ALA in a thread about fish oil?

I literally copied that from Lupo’s article, you smelly cunt.
