Not surprisingly, it's more beneficial to eat fish high in omega-3 several times a week than it is to take omega-3 supplements.

According to a blurb in the NYTimes about this review, "eating 2 to 4 servings of fish a week reduced stroke risk by 6% compared with eating one serving or less and having 5 servings a week reduced the risk by 12%. But the result of randomized trials that had use omega-3 supplements showed no significant effect on risk."

Now, I love fish and eat it for dinner at least once a week and for lunch one or twice. But I rarely have it 5 times a week.

I know that omega-3 has other benefits so I will continue to take my "Complete Omega 3-6-9" as well as eat fish high in omega-3.
