Omega-3 fatty acids and inflammation: What the experts say
The ability of omega-3 fatty acids to significantly reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death by 45 percent was demonstrated in the GISSI Prevention study, in which more than eleven thousand patients participated. A recent review of the use of omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of hypertension found that omega-3s protect against stroke and reaffirmed that the cardioprotective benefits of omega-3 fatty acids are related to their ability to improve blood pressure, vascular function, lipid metabolism, inflammation, and cardiac function.
Dr. Leahy was honored to teach a class for 100 medical students, faculty, and directors at Zhongshan medical school in China. Dr. Leahy's wife Qiuping is from Beijing, so China is somewhat familiar to him.
The class was very well received, and there were loud oohs, and aahs when the ART was demonstrated. He even did a little spinal adjusting as well. The president of the school was impressed enough to say that whatever we needed, he would try to provide so that we can teach classes at several medical schools in China. The goal here is to do what we can to help with physical medicine there. It was very nice to be appreciated, and to open the door to this endeavor in China.
