ABSTRACT
Reports that researchers at the University of Southampton in Great Britain have designed a prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical trial to determine the effect of dietary omega-3 fatty acids in patients scheduled to undergo carotid endarterectomy for advanced atherosclerosis. Indication that increasing dietary omega-3 fatty acids by consuming fish or supplements is cardioprotective, reduces atherosclerosis, prevents sudden deaths and decreases the likelihood of future heart attacks.
