"We have a very good, very big study that says neither vitamin D, nor fish oil, reduce the risk of cancer or heart disease", said Steven Nissen, M.D., chairman of Cleveland Clinic's Heart and Vascular Institute, who did not take part in the research.
"These "positive" results need to be interpreted with caution", Dr. Clifford Rosen of Maine Medical Center Research Institute and Dr. John Keaney Jr. of the University of MA wrote in a commentary in the medical journal. Analysis of the NNT data (how many pts are "needed to treat") showed that only 21 people would need to take the medicine for five years to see one of these benefits, which is favorable when compared with other NNT statistics for many medical interventions The monthly average cost of $280 for this medication is a concern for many who may not have insurance, however.

Fish oils, also called omega-3 fatty acids, are found in salmon, tuna and certain other fish. "If people aren't going to eat fish, there really may be some benefits from taking a fish oil supplement".
That worked out to a 25 percent reduction in risk.
The heart attack rate in fish oil recipients was 28 per cent lower than among those who got the dummy pill, or placebo, and it was 77 per cent lower among African American participants - although the lead author of the study told Reuters Health that this dramatic drop in risk among black participants needs to be confirmed.
Experts agree that vitamin D is important for bone health. An industry that has largely been propped by a few studies that claim popping Vitamin D will keep your cancer risk at bay and Omega 3 pills will keep you safe from heart disease, among other ills.
"People considering the use of omega-3 fatty acids to prevent heart disease must weigh the overall balance of benefits and risks", said Dr. JoAnn Manson a director of the study and head of the Department of Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
