Return to top Fish oils: Before the supplement hucksters get too excited, try looking at their report. The report concerns only the question of how to minimise the chances of another heart attack myocardial infarction, MI after you have had one.
One section of the advice among many concerns diet. Patients should be advised to consume at least 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week from two to four portions of oily fish.
For patients who have had an MI within 3 months and who are not achieving 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week, consider providing at least 1 g daily of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment licensed for secondary prevention post MI for up to 4 years. Initiation of omegaacid ethyl esters supplements is not routinely recommended for patients who have had an MI more than 3 months earlier.
Patients should be advised to eat a Mediterranean-style diet more bread, fruit, vegetables and fish; less meat; and replace butter and cheese with products based on vegetable and plant oils.
Later, on page 27, the evidence is assessed.
What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in all patients after an MI?
One trial has shown a benefit of treatment with omegaacid ethyl esters in patients within 3 months of an MI. However, other secondary prevention treatment had not been optimised in this trial and the majority of patients had preserved left ventricular function.
There is some uncertainty about how much additional benefit patients after acute MI optimally managed for secondary prevention, including those with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, will obtain from the addition of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment.
There is also a paucity of evidence for the effectiveness of treating patients who have had an MI in the past, at least 3 months earlier. The efficacy of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in patients both early and later after MI deserves further research.

This letter is just surreal. Download the whole letter. Clearly misunderstanding the nature of science is not restricted to any political party. In any case, regulation of crackpot medicine arguably does more harm than good see letter, below.
Most sorts of crackpot medicine are desparate to be "regulated" by the government.
They know that the regulation is ineffective, and they know that it gives them a stamp of governnment approval with few obligations on their part. They can then claim to be "professional" psychic surgeons or whatever and pretend to be proper doctors.
