EPA and DHA omega-3s from food and supplements may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), according to results of a new meta-analysis.Data from 18 randomized clinical trials (RCTs) indicated that EPA and DHA were associated with a non-statistically significant 6% risk reduction in CHD among all populations, while the risk reduction increased to a statistically significant 18% when data from 16 prospective cohort studies was assessed.The findings of the meta-analysis, published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings , also indicated that among RCTs there was a statistically significant reduction in CHD risk in higher risk populations, including a 16% in those with high triglycerides and 14% in those with high LDL cholesterol.
As neighborhood status falls, cardiovascular disease risk among black residents spikes

The lower a neighborhood’s socioeconomic status is, the more likely its black residents are to develop heart disease and stroke, according to a new Drexel University-led public health study.While many neighborhood-level public health studies focus on physical aspects of a neighborhood — such as the availability of affordable, healthy foods or the walkability of the location — this study examined how a neighborhood’s social and economic makeup was linked to the development of cardiovascular disease.”This is an important contribution because it is the largest study among blacks to look at the link between neighborhood socioeconomic status and adverse neighborhood conditions such as violence and disorder in relation to cardiovascular disease,” said Sharrelle Barber, ScD, a research fellow at Drexel’s Dornsife School of Public Health, who led the study published in the American Journal of Public Health.
Omega-3 fatty acids linked to lower risk of heart disease

Omega-3 fatty acids in fish and dietary supplements are associated with lower odds of heart disease even in people already at elevated risk because of excessive levels of fats or bad cholesterol in their blood, a research review suggests.The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish a week and considering supplements of omega-3 fatty acids when that’s not possible.Previous research has linked omega-3s to a lower risk of abnormal heartbeats, less fats in the blood, reduced risk of artery-clogging deposits known as plaque, and slightly lower blood pressure.
