The article discusses research on an inverse relationship between baseline marine omega-3 fatty acid blood levels and the rate of leukocyte telomere shortening in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD), with reference to a study by R. Farzaneh-Far that was published in an issue of the "Journal of the American Medical Association."
