OMEGA-3 & LIVER DISEASE: Researchers at Oregon State University’s Linus Pauling Institute have found that the omega-3 fatty acid known as DHA can reduced the proteins involved in liver fibrosis by more than 65 percent.
A story on the university’s Web site quotes principal investigator Donald Jump, professor in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences: “A reduction of that magnitude in the actual scarring and damage to the liver is very important.”
The study is published online in the Journal of Nutrition.
