Inconsistency in article
In the section "Health Effects: Cardiovascular Disease" the initial sentence is:
Evidence does not support a beneficial role for omega-3 fatty acid supplementation in preventing cardiovascular disease (including myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death) or stroke.
Yet the section "Mechanism of Action: The omega-6 to omega-3 ratio" contains the following:
... three studies published in 2005, 2007 and 2008, including a randomized controlled trial, found that, while omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are extremely beneficial in preventing heart disease in humans, the levels of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (and, therefore, the ratios) did not matter.
The second paragraph in the section "The omega-6 to omega-3 ratio" contradicts the statement in the first that the ratio does not matter. Am I missing something? 2605:A601:5AF:7001:FDD3:B2ED:F1B7:187A (talk) 00:52, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
