3 doctors agree

In brief: No need

Omegas have been recently discredited as cardiovascular protectors.
A large study completed this year by the nih found no improvement in outcomes. So the demographic data that has indicated beneficial results of seafood consumption still applies; so eat ocean fish, not omegas.
