And they used Olive oil for a control....hehehehehe which has been implicated in reducing heart disease. What a wonderful control. LOL
You would think they would use a control which is benign.
The recent study from Italy used only 1gm which I believe insufficient to evoke a response from the body. Once you reach a threshold the body will start using the fish oil instead of producing its own triglycerides.
Just another Seeking Alpha short expression nothing new.... just opinion. And opinions are like rectums and everyone has one. Since everyone has an opinion I will say that nothing substantial will happen until Anchor decision in December. Although there should be a nice run-up starting 3 months prior.
Come on now there are too many buyers... Stop and sell. What is wrong? Not scared enough? Fear is coming. Fear is coming. Oh no!
"highest quality" ... which one(s)? I just googled and You'll find that mercury is just one of the major contaminants regularly found in seafood; exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxin, DDT and other organochlorine pesticides are just as alarming.
Over the counter fish oils are not regulated which means the product can contain mercury and other toxins. As you know, the FDA checks the manufacturer of all drugs and their plant facilities for purity.
Insurance companies pay for a large amount of the cost (ave 80-90%) people's drugs.
Now which would you do ..... purchase over the counter Omega 3 (100% paid by you) which has unknown qualities or get an Rx for Vescepa (no impurities) and have the insurance company pay for most of the cost?
Now we all know that there are other advantages of taking that Rx so WHY would you not ask your doctor for that Rx??? Your doctor can prescribe it for you "off label".
So what did you say about AMRN not doing well?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
