According to a large-scale data analysis of 10 people, no evidence was found to prove that various omega-3 health products (mainly fish oil and shrimp oil) that are popular can reduce the risk of premature death.

The fast-growing health care industry has made a lot of hype about omega-3, and a lot of publicity can prevent a series of diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, depression, heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. This caused a lot of controversy.

Previous small-scale experiments have shown that omega-3 has a certain effect on preventing sudden death, but this large-scale data study shows that this is not the case.

This research was conducted by Cochrane scientists.

Cochrane is a global network of experts dedicated to providing information on health policies. This research was conducted by Cochrane scientists. They assembled the results of 112,059 randomized trials with 79 participants from Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States. Data shows that omega-3 has no practical effect on reducing the risk of death. There is no effect or negligible effect on the risk of heart attack, stroke or irregular heart rate.

Tim Chico, a well-known professor of cardiovascular medicine and cardiologist, said: "The analysis of multiple research data clearly shows that omega-3 supplements cannot prevent heart disease. If you care about your money and health, eating vegetables is more effective. "
