Wisconsin Researcher Seeks Veterans to Study Whether Fish Oil Delays Alzheimer’s Damage
Researchers in Wisconsin are looking for veterans with a family history of Alzheimer's disease to determine whether fish oil can stop brain damage during the disorder's early stages. “We know fish oil has beneficial effects on heart health,” Dr. Cindy Carlsson, the trial's leading investigator and a researcher at the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center in Madison, said in a press release. “There is some evidence to suggest it may help against Alzheimer’s disease brain changes, but this is not proven yet."
