Fish Oil Supplement Companies Criticize Omega 3 Testing As Flawed

September 13, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Industry representatives of fish oil supplement makers went on the defensive recently, criticizing ConsumerLab laboratory analyses of 35 fish oil/omega 3 supplements as well as a scientific meta-study that found no omega 3 benefit for heart patients. ConsumerLab found problems with 11 of the 35 products, including mislabeling, contamination and excessive PCBs. The meta-study, published in JAMA, found that any positive impact of omega 3s on heart health was statistically insignificant. A representative of the Global Organization for EPA and DHA pointed out flaws in the ConsumerLab testing and publicity, and in the JAMA study.
