DLM: Fish (2001)
The ADA 2001 Hyperlipidemia MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components (all of the components of current evidence analysis include: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
Fish (Hyperlipidemia 2001)
Consumption of an average of 7 ounces of fatty fish (high in n-3 fatty acids) per week decreases the risk of death from coronary heart disease (CHD) by ~30% to 40%.
