Omega-3 v metabolic syndrome.

Prof Chol Shin looked at 3,500 Koreans over 3 and a half years to evaluate fish, omega-3, and the risk of developing metabolic syndrome.

The participants were both male and female, aged 40-69 and free from metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease at the start of the study.

Males who ate fish daily were nearly 60% less likely to develop metabolic syndrome than those eating fish less than once a week.

Males in the top tenth for omega-3 consumption had half the risk of developing metabolic syndrome compared to those in the bottom tenth.

For women, no associations were observed between eating fish, omega-3 and metabolic syndrome.
