Return to top Fish oils: Before the supplement hucksters get too excited, try looking at their report. The report concerns only the question of how to minimise the chances of another heart attack myocardial infarction, MI after you have had one. One section of the advice among many concerns diet.
Patients should be advised to consume at least 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week from two to four portions of oily fish. For patients who have had an MI within 3 months and who are not achieving 7 g of omega 3 fatty acids per week, consider providing at least 1 g daily of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment licensed for secondary prevention post MI for up to 4 years.
Initiation of omegaacid ethyl esters supplements is not routinely recommended for patients who have had an MI more than 3 months earlier.
Patients should be advised to eat a Mediterranean-style diet more bread, fruit, vegetables and fish; less meat; and replace butter and cheese with products based on vegetable and plant oils.
Later, on page 27, the evidence is assessed. What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in all patients after an MI? One trial has shown a benefit of treatment with omegaacid ethyl esters in patients within 3 months of an MI. However, other secondary prevention treatment had not been optimised in this trial and the majority of patients had preserved left ventricular function.
There is some uncertainty about how much additional benefit patients after acute MI optimally managed for secondary prevention, including those with left ventricular systolic dysfunction, will obtain from the addition of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment. There is also a paucity of evidence for the effectiveness of treating patients who have had an MI in the past, at least 3 months earlier.
The efficacy of omegaacid ethyl esters treatment in patients both early and later after MI deserves further research. He wrote, in particular, about Stephen Turoff. Turoff was the subject of the first episode of "Trust me I'm a Healer", a programme that looked at "fake psychic healers".
They are the BBC's own words see badpsychics. Federal Trade Commission in In a unanimous opinion, the commission declared that "'psychic surgery' is nothing but a total hoax. Hanscom, in granting the FTC an injunction against travel agencies promoting psychic surgery tours, said: The 'surgical operations' of psychic surgeons And capable of self-regulation?

Clearly misunderstanding the nature of science is not restricted to any political party. In any case, regulation of crackpot medicine arguably does more harm than good see letter, below. Most sorts of crackpot medicine are desparate to be "regulated" by the government.
They know that the regulation is ineffective, and they know that it gives them a stamp of governnment approval with few obligations on their part. They can then claim to be "professional" psychic surgeons or whatever and pretend to be proper doctors.
And foremost among those pressing for this sort of phony respectability has been the Prince of Wales Foundation for Integrated Health see here and here Return to top Conservative party supports homeopathy: The list of NHS Trusts that are cutting funding for homeopathy keeps growing they are listed in a letter from Peter Fisherno less.
There is real hope that reason will prevail. Part of the backlash has been the tabling of an early day motion in parliament these aren't voted on, but are just a sort of publicity stunt.
It includes some MPs whom, in other ways.
I particularly admire, for example Glenda Jackson and Robert Marhsall-Andrews, as well as quite a lot whom I don't admire a bit. Ignorance of science is, sadly, pretty common in all parties. The signatories include my own MP, Mike Penning a rather right wing conservative.
I wrote to him, and was surprised to hear that support for homeopathy is official Conservative policy.
I quote from his reply. Return to top Multivitamins linked to increased death rate from prostate cancer? Another blow for the "Nutritional therapy" scam has appeared in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Men who take large doses of multivitamin and other supplements had a relative risk of fatal prostate cancer almost twice as big as those who don't.
Does this mean that taking vitamin supplements increases you risk of death? The BBC report says "Taking lots of multivitamins may increase the risk of deadly prostate cancer, say US researchers".As we look at this passage, which depicts Jesus’ conflict with family sandwiching a conflict with the religious leaders over Jesus’ authority, whether it comes from God or Satan, we need to remember that this is the first mention of family in Mark’s gospel.
