Omega-3, Healthy or Not?

Some scientists say the Fatty Acid, Omega-3 is not all it’s cracked up to be.

Omega-3 can be found in fatty fish and some plant and nut oils, and many studies have shown it can lower the risk of heart disease.

However in a review of 89 studies that measured the effect of Omega-3 Fatty Acids on heart attack, death, cancer and strokes, researchers didn't find any clear benefit of Omega-3s in reducing the risk of those health hazards.

Experts say more studies are needed, and consumers should continue eating fish and foods high in Omega-3 despite the research.
