Fish Oil + Low-Dose Statins = 19% Heart Attack Reduction!

I once asked Dr. William Davis of Track Your Plaque fame if he could use only one supplement what it would be. He quickly answered, "Fish Oil!"
Many have touted the heart health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet (high in fish products) or simply taking fish oil as a supplement. Now, the new JELIS study ( PubMed Abstract , HeartWire Article ), an 18,645 participant study over 5 years shows that major cardiac events are reduced 19% when fish oil is used to supplement a low-dose statin regimen.
This finding could be a real boon to many heart disease sufferers who cannot tolerate high-dose statin therapy!
