I spend a lot of time knocking supplements for not having research behind them. It's important therefore to highlight when such research is done. Today we're looking at a very good study on whether fish oil supplements can help people who need regular outside access to their circulatory systems (for things like hemodialsys). Spolier alert: the fish oil didn't help.
