To the Editor: Drs Hu and Willett1 concluded that diets high in nonhydrogenated unsaturated fats, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and adequate omega-3 fatty acids can offer significant protection against coronary heart disease (CHD). Although I agree with most of these recommendations, I am concerned that addition of fish and omega-3 fats may not provide a truly optimal diet for overall human health, much less for patients with heart disease.
