New study finds fish oil decreases chronic kidney disease


Fish oil has received attention in recent years as a possible method in preventing heart attacks and strokes. Now, a study from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota suggests dietary fish oils as a means of slowing the progression of chronic kidney disease.

The fish oil, taken as 12 one-gram capsules daily during a study, showed a dramatic slowing process over a two-year period.
