Article 1: Why Fish Oil Fails: A Comprehensive 21st Century Lipids-Based Physiologic Analysis


Conclusion
Marine/fish oil, in the supraphysiologic, prophylactic amounts often consumed, is harmful, possibly even more harmful than trans fats [3]. If proper physiologic amounts were utilized (<20 mg EPA/DHA), perhaps their furan acid content would be a significant positive factor; the concern of rampant oxidation is alleviated. 

Otherwise, given today’s high quantities of fish oil recommendation, we see that their furan acid component is rendered ineffective. The medical profession needs to thoroughly review highly quantitative 21st century lipid physiology and biochemistry and offer the appropriate patient warnings. It is sincerely hoped that future researchers will approach the fish oil controversy with a more comprehensive grasp of the lipid biochemistry and physiology involved. Science must take precedence over “studies” which are often open to (mis)interpretation, leading to continual reversals and inconsistent results in clinical trials.

Using the most direct and effective physiologic measure, fish oil in the doses suggested is unequivocally shown to be an anti-aging substance, increasing vascular “biologic aging” by over a decade—causing “hardening of the arteries”— compared to PEO consumption.Compared to taking nothing, fish oil decreased subjects’ arterial compliance (a bad outcome), by nearly four years[60].

Prophylactic marine oil consumption given its supraphysiologic EPA/DHA amounts - both theoretically and in clinical use - leads to increased inflammation, increased CVD, and increased cancer risk.

Article 2: SELECT Trial Results Examined: Why Fish Oil, DHA and “Oily Fish” Are Inflammatory, Leading to Increases in Prostate Cancer, Epithelial Cancers and CVD 


Conclusion
Fish oil, in the supraphysiologic, prophylactic amounts often consumed, is harmful; possibly even more harmful than trans fats. The medical profession needs to thoroughly review the 21st century physiology and biochemistry and offer the appropriate patient warnings. As Professor of Medicine, Stanton Glantz, makes clear: A stastatistically analyzed observational study combined with independent evidence (established medical science), allows cause/effect conclusions [6]. The 2013 SELECT analysis and conclusions meet this criterion. It is sincerely hoped that future researchers will approach the fish oil controversy with a more comprehensive grasp of the biochemistry and physiology involved and a healthy skepticism for conclusions based on the simplistic “preponderance of studies (open to misinterpretation),” while disregarding indisputable established medical science. 

Article 3: Why Fish Oil Fails to Prevent or Improve CVD: A 21st Century Analysis 


Conclusion
Theoretically, it has been shown why fish oil supplementation with its EPA/DHA active components never had a physiologic or biochemical basis to either prevent or reverse CVD. Worse than doing nothing, fish oil causes harm. It has been explained physiologically what the correct EFA components must be (PEOs) to fulfill fish oil’s failed promise and to positively effect cardiovascular health. IOWA is the first clinical screening experiment to measure arterial compliance in subjects using fish oil and PEOs. For the first time, using the most direct and effective physiologic measure, fish oil in the doses suggested, at least in regards to arterial compliance, is unequivocally shown to be an anti anti-aging substance.
