  • Description:
    "The epidemiological studies by Bang et al. and Dyerberg, which associated the beneficial effects of omega-3 (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) with the potential prevention of coronary heart disease have stimulated numerous studies on the role of n-3 fatty acids. Seafood lipids may have a positive effect on preventing and/or ameliorating a number of disease states common in western society. The physiological effects of increasing consumption of seafoods or fish has established beneficial effects on risk factors for coronary heart disease in a number of animal and human studies. Determining the scope of this potential, as well as any accompanying adverse consequences, will require additional clinical, biochemical, and physiological studies with high purity, quality assured test materials of consistent composition that can be supplied to researchers over the period of time necessary to complete the research. The conference held in 1985 on "Health Effects of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Seafoods" concluded that the lack of adequate supplies of quality assured test materials of consistent composition and high purity was a significant limitation to exploring the research frontiers on preventing or ameliorating degenerative disease states"--Introduction, paragraph 1.
