since there is no way to know for sure who will , or will not develop the mental illness. how can they boast about any measure of success? there is no way of knowing which members of either test group would or would not become schizophrenic. it's great that they have some kind of bases that the omega-3 helps certain mental disorders, but to say it is a cure, well that is a little bit out on the limb.

I use fish oil every day for my autistic son. Experience has taught me that it helps him out a lot. How nice to get evidence through this study that something healthy can possibly help out mental disease like this.

A person with a family history of schizophrenia has a greater chance of getting it. Maybe they tested people with similar family histories.

Flaxseed oil has more Omega-3 then fish oil does. People seem to be stuck on fish oil even though you can get both in pill form.
