This indicates the powerful benefits of high-dose EPA and DHA when given at a therapeutic dose.  As mentioned in the article, the benefits in the animal models translates into 6-12 grams of EPA and DHA per day in humans.  That has been my contention since I published my book, The OmegaRx Zone, in 2002.  You need a therapeutic dose to get a therapeutic effect.
