I probably shouldn’t be eating Scottish fatty fish daily. I use all the fat and dribble it on my same pan sauté veggies. It’s supposed to be good for sticky cholesterol platelets

Here's another article on the topic:

So what is the takeaway for us afibbers?

pursuing old posts. it appears this is fish oil omega 3. I wonder if it applies for vegan sources of omega 3. One of my cardiologists (functional) is a vegan and has supplements and recommends foods for omega 3 supplementation. may be a lot less than the fish. IDK. walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, edamame, seaweed, and algae.... are just a few. I'm not a vegan but plant based with "meat on the side" kind of gal. I also love sardines (with a little mayo and cucumbers). Delicious.. and full of them as well. Just an idea if folks want to stop the supplements. I could be sucking down supplements all day.... I like to eat though!!!

Maybe the takeaway is to consider the presence/absence of CVD, and the dose:

"In RCTs examining cardiovascular outcomes, marine ɷ-3 supplementation was associated with an increased risk of AF. The risk appeared to be greater in trials testing >1 g/d."
