Default Omega 3 - no major health benefits

Here is a recent meta-analysis by a group of British researchers which has just been published in the British Journal of Medicine. Their conculsion? Long chain and shorter chain omega 3 fats do not have a clear effect on total mortality, combined cardiovascular events, or cancer.


I see a couple of methodological flaws with this study, which can be found here:

But I thought i would open the topic to discussion first.
