mikeccolella Posted April 20, 2018 Report Share Posted April 20, 2018 (edited) Im currently reading “ The Telomere Effect” by nobel prize winner Elizabeth Blackburn. She cites a study that measured telomere length and showed that of three groups the ones taking the most fish oil ended up with the longest telomeres. Long Telomeres are strongly associated with longevity. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3545053/#!po=42.6471 What is noteworthy is that the fish oil improved the ratio of omega 3 and omega 6 and this was cited as the probable factor based on the physiological effects of lowering this ratio. If that is correct then it may not be specifically fish oil but merely the effect this had on lowering the ratio Edited April 21, 2018 by mikeccolella Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
