The session contained three presentations, one of which were given by Liz Lund (IFR, UK) on fish consumption modifying risk of colorectal disease in humans. Results were presented from an intervention study (FISHGASTRO) started shortly after the launching of SEAFOODplus and codes broken in the spring of 2008. The outcome of a four year study was thus presented for the first time. Results from the projects YOUNG, studying the health of young European families, and METAHEART, studying n-3 fatty acids and heart disease, were also presented.
