Questions from patients and the general public about omega-3 supplements focus on the controversy and confusing media messages. Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton, who is a leading expert in the field, will address the evidence from metabolic, epidemiological, and clinical trial research with regard to potential benefits and risks from taking fish oil extracts or omega-3 supplements. This program will examine how metabolic, epidemiological, and clinical trial research studies have informed guidelines and consider how health status and lifestyle impact implementation of intake recommendations.
