"Details that could throw doubt on your interpretation must be given, if you know them. If you make a theory,
for example, and advertise it, or put it out, then you must also put down all the facts that disagree with it."
—Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning physicist
I have been advocating discontinuing fish oil supplementation in favor of a biologically appropriate ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 for years. I have spent many years in the wilderness making my argument in print and at medical conferences around the world. Successfully withstanding continual attacks by those blindly defending the status quo, I am happy to report the changing of the status quo as it relates to fish oil and heart health.
Remember, May 2013 as the time when the medical establishment embraced one of my fundamental discoveries. Specifically, the discarding of fish oil for heart health. First reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, a very large well-done study in Italy showed that fish oil was completely ineffective in preventing heart disease for a very large group of high risk patients. Soon after, Dr. Eric Topol, renowned cardiologist from Scripps Health (La Jolla, California) and editor-in-chief of Medscape, recommended discontinuing all fish oil supplementation for the prevention of heart disease. It doesn't get any more main stream than Dr. Topol, so I gladly accept the designation of an advocate for a rational, now mainstream approach for combating heart disease.
I am often asked how my EFA recommendations differ from others. The answer is simple but very significant. The term "Essential Fatty Acids" is misused so frequently that I was compelled to coin a new phrase, Parent Essential Oils (PEOs). For scientific proof of the correctness of my PEO recommendations from the American Heart Association and others in 2009/2008, click here. This is life-science you need to know.
