    That stuff sounds pretty good but isn't plain fish oil just as good as well as being cheaper than that?

    We performed a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involving patients with established cardiovascular disease or with diabetes and other risk factors, who had been receiving statin therapy and who had a fasting triglyceride level of 135 to 499 mg per deciliter (1.52 to 5.63 mmol per liter) and a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level of 41 to 100 mg per deciliter (1.06 to 2.59 mmol per liter).

    This isnt new. Been out for a while and its a pure EPA fish oil, no dha. What is new is a study that shows Vascepa to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by 25% without statins. Adding statin reduces the risk another 25-30%. Its a huge break through and i think the next study with this drug will be about reducing inflammation. This is exciting.
