Abstract
  • The evidence for a protective role of omega 3 fatty acids in CHD is becoming clearer and firmer, especially for secondary prevention. Intakes of approximately 800-1,000 mg per day appear to be a prudent approach for the latter group of patients. The safety of intakes of up to 3,000 mg per day has been endorsed by the recent ruling of the FDA that this level of EPA+DHA (from menhaden oil) is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for inclusion in the American food supply. Recommendations for primary prevention of CHD and for use in other conditions (inflammatory diseases, autoimmune conditions, cancer prevention, etc.) cannot yet be made as the requisite data to support such recommendations is not yet available.
