I read an article about vitamins in fish, and fish pills that were being recommended as a preventive device against heart disease. I asked my doctor about it and he said he was unconvinced by the clinical studies, but that many doctors subscribed to it. Bottom line was that if I did not mind fish breath, go ahead but he was not recommending it and to stick with the Prinavil and aspirin.

There was initial excitement that the Omega-3 fatty acids found in some fish oils might be cardioprotective but the evidence is not particularly convincing. That said, Omega-3's can be effective for lowering triglycerides.
