A novel study is of the suggestion that omega-3 fatty acids might not be doing too much of work at protecting heart from diseases, as perceived.
Almost 5,000 heart attack survivors made use of one form of the given margarines for no less than 40 months. As per this study that has been published in the New England Journal of Medicine on Sunday, partakers of the study eating margarines enhanced with omega-3 fatty acids had similar chances of suffering from repeated heart attacks or various other health troubles as faced by those who consumed the regular form of margarine.
It is believed that omega-3 helps in reducing the threat of abnormal heartbeats, and also lowers triglyceride levels, etc.
It is added to food items such as peanut butter, cheese, margarine and is naturally present in salmon, herring or tuna fish.
It was noted by the researchers that the volunteers of the study were receiving very good treatment along with being administered with statins and other medicines for making their heart healthier.
However, diabetes patients actually running higher risk of witnessing heart attacks than others is another story.
Diabetes patients, who consumed margarine fortified with omega-3 fatty acids, had improved heart health, with 50% less chance of dying due to heart attack.
