Context is everything. It is clickbait junk science.

This study from data collected from people 40 to 69. In a data only study like this one they do NOT look at variables such as preexisting heart problems and higher chance of stroke. People with a propensity for heart disease have typically always been told by their Doc to take fish oil. So a higher % in this cohort of data only samples will be taking fish oil.

So you have a higher number of people taking fish oil, 40-69 age range where people tend to first exhibit heart probs, heart attack, stroked ect. Lastly the data is skewed as healthy people will not be in the cohort. It is a rigged study.

So you have a paper that is not backed up with a double blind study, just from data sources of people who are more likely to take fish oil AND more likely to have a first time heart prob.

It is like saying "You have a much higher chance of dying in a car accident if you drive or ride in cars than if you never do".

Another article. The takeaway is that DHA might counteract the benefits of EPA, so it could be better to take pure EPA.

Recent studies have raised concerns about the potential negative effects of fish oil supplements. Despite their popularity for heart health, some research suggests that excessive consumption may increase the risk of certain health issues, including bleeding disorders and immune system suppression. As with any supplement, it's crucial to balance benefits and risks, and consult with a healthcare provider before making changes to your regimen.

Such incredibly valuable insight. Thank you for taking time to copy and paste it from ChatGPT.
