Heart Guidelines Get Makeover.
The following guidelines were updated by the American Heart Association with very little fanfare. There some very significant changes in their recommendations. For example:

OLD ADVICE: Many women with high cholesterol should take statins to help prevent heart disease.

NEW ADVICE: Recent research suggests that cholesterol-lowering statins are most effective for women who already have heart disease or are at increased risk for getting it. The higher your risk, the more likely you are to benefit from statins.

OLD ADVICE: Thirty minutes of daily exercise is enough to keep your heart healthy.

NEW ADVICE: Take daily aspirin only if you're over 65, have had a heart attack, or are at high risk for heart disease. Otherwise, the risks from taking too much aspirin (like gastrointestinal bleeding) likely outweigh the benefits.

OLD ADVICE: No recommendations for daily fish oil intake for high triglycerides

0.5 to 1g of omega-3 EPA and DHA for individuals with borderline fasting triglyceride levels (150 to 199mg/dL), 1 - 2g for individuals with high fasting-triglyceride levels (200 to 499mg/dL), and 2 to 4g for individuals with very high fasting-triglyceride levels.
