    Whether dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are causally related to cardiovascular disease is a major, unresolved question in preventive cardiology. Essential omega-3 folly acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and their parent compound alpha-linolenic...

    Background: The n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, which are present in fish, are protective against myocardial infarction. However, fish also contains methylmercury, which influences the risk of myocardial infarction, possibly by generating oxidative...
