Fish oil, vitamin D supplements not beneficial to cardiac health

A study that has been applauded for being well done with a diverse sampling of races shows that fish oil and vitamin D do not help prevent atrial fibrillation nor help cardiac health, as has been touted.  Doctors are saying you would be better off spending that money to eat better and get exercise.  Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to heart attacks, strokes, dementia, and possibly death.  There was a study that wasn’t specific about the connection between atrial fibrillation and fish oil, but this new one concludes there isn’t one.  This study followed 25, 000 people.  The use of supplements has risen and is a 12 billion dollar industry, but experts say their benefits are often overstated.  Focusing on a healthy lifestyle is a better solution.  Read more details from ABC News here:
