It's time to double the fish consumption. Scientists at the University of Guelph in Canada have found that omega-3s are eight times more effective than omega-3s from vegetables in preventing tumor growth and development.
Reduction of tumor size from 60 to 70%
The study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry compared the anti-cancer efficacy of omega-3 fatty acids from plants and oceans on the development of mammary tumors. There are three types of omega-3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) that is herbal and found in flax seeds, nuts and in oils such as soy. Also, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in fish or algae. Scientists fed in utero mice with a very aggressive form of human breast cancer. Their diet included omega-3 from vegetables or from the marine environment. The results showed that marine omega-3 exposure reduced tumor size by 60-70% and tumors by 30%. To achieve these same results, higher doses of plant omega-3s were needed.
Fatty acids probably beneficial for all cancers
Professor David Ma, lead author of the study, said, "The mice were exposed to different omega-3s before the tumors grew, which allowed us to compare the effectiveness of fatty acids with prevention "before continuing:" it was known until now that EPA and DHA can inhibit the growth of breast tumors, but no one had directly examined the effectiveness of these omega-3s compared to ALA. " Scientists have also explained the mechanism of omega-3s: fatty acids activate the genes associated with the immune system and block the growth pathways of tumors. Professor David Ma concluded, "By seeing the significant benefits that omega-3s can have in fighting a very aggressive form of breast cancer, omega-3s are likely to be beneficial for other types of cancer."
Tips: If the human body knows how to make fatty acids from omega 3, it cannot produce omega 3 on its own, so they must be brought by food. The professor invites the public to consume two to three servings of fish a week to achieve the same effects as the result of this study, which seems rather easy to achieve. As a reminder, salmon is the star of foods rich in omega-3 but it is not alone! Sardines, tuna, mackerel, and trout are also particularly interesting oily fish for refueling with omega 3. Not to mention the famous fish oil, produced by the processing of fish remains by the fishing industry, which is a proven source of omega 3 fatty acids.
It is noted that many medicines have a side effect, today it is the quinine side effect we are going to know. It is a medicine prescribed to the millions of people across the world. It is given to people that are suffering from cramps and restless legs syndrome. But it came to our attention that it has a potential to increase those patients heart problem and therefore can lead them to death.
How Quinine a medicine against cramps will increase the risk of having heart disease? How they came out of the potential danger of taking Quinine?
JPsante: in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Royal Free Medical School and London University College found that patients who were taking Quinine were exposed to die prematurely. The researchers analyzed prescriptions delivered for Quinine, a dose of 100 mg per day or for one month. Of 175,000 patients, about a quarter had received Quinine for muscle cramps or restless legs syndrome.

DO YOU WANT TO BURN FAT?
If yes, there is a good news for you. What you need to do is to add cinnamon spice to your food.
Scientists at the University of Michigan in the United States have discovered that cinnamon will help burn fat cells and protect metabolism.
In this holiday season, you can have a heavy hand with cinnamon! Researchers at the Life Sciences Institute at the University of Michigan in the United States have published a study showing that this spice has fat-burning properties.
ACTS ON FAT CELLS
The food element that gives flavor to cinnamon is called cinnamaldehyde. The researchers studied the effect of this element on human fat cells. They tested human adipocytes from volunteers representing several ranges of ages, ethnicities, and body mass indexes. After treating the cells with cinnamaldehyde, the scientists noticed that the element would improve metabolic health by acting directly on the adipocytes, causing them to burn ene ... Read all
The UK government warns against a cream from popular Chinese medicine that many think is natural and use in case of eczema and psoriasis while it contains medicinal components that increase heart risk.
"Natural does not mean without danger". This is the title of the new statement from the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, which warns of a Chinese remedy sold on the internet that is increasingly popular with patients with psoriasis or eczema.
A component that increases the risk of heart failure
After conducting several studies on the composition of this Yiganerjing-based cream, the researchers found that it contained too high a dose of clobetasol propionate, a topical corticosteroid only available on prescription and two antifungals that would increase heart risk. The problem is that with the popularity of this cream more and more people are trying to get it illegally on the web. The UK governme ... Read all
As promised, JPsante has found a great news for you if you are television addicted and you want to deal with it. Here is a study that will motivate in order to cure you of your addiction quickly.
At an annual US Congress on Cardiac Research, researchers have found that the risk of having a vein clogged with a clot increases proportionally with time spent on television.
According to researchers at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont (USA-), the risk of developing a blood clot increases proportionally as time passes in front of the television.
THE SWEET NIBBLING ASSOCIATED WITH TELEVISION IS DANGEROUS
JPsante: In this study, researchers looked at the cases of 15,518 people between the ages of 45 and 64 who were already doing research on the profile of people with atherosclerosis (fat plaques in the arteries). Among these volunteers, scientists report that the risk of developing thrombosis (a blood clot that could cl ... Read all
