Abstract or Summary
  • The n-3 fatty acids have important effects to modulate and prevent human diseases, particularly coronary heart disease. Their effects upon the brain later in life to prevent certain disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease are unknown but are certainly worthy of study. Certainly the evidence is now very strong that the n-3 fatty acids are essential for human development in the fetus and infant and are likely to have a role throughout life. The antiarrythmic effect of n-3 fatty acids is a discovery that has great relevance to the prevention of sudden death from ventricular fibrillation in patients with coronary heart disease. Further clinical trials in this area are definitely indicated.
