Can Fish Oil Help Reading?
Discussion Fats and fatty acids are essential for good human health. Saturated fats have hydrogen pairs linked to each carbon on the carbon backbone. They are solid or semi-solid at room temperature. Common examples are butter, lard, or hardened vegetable shortening. They are linked to higher cholesterol and triglycerides and only a small amount of them are recommended to be consumed in the diet. Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liq...

Fish with a side of plastic?
Our ancestors thrived on eating fish fresh from the ocean. After all, fish is a pure source of protein and healthy omega-3 fats. But our modern fish supply is vastly different than anything our ancestors ate. As our oceans have become more and more polluted, so has our seafood. In fact, the fish on your dinner plate today is likely loaded with plastic trash. Let me explain… Every year, billions of pounds of plastic waste pour into our oceans and rivers. I’m talking about things like grocery bags, drinking straws, water bottles and more. It’s now estimated that up to 51 trillion pieces of plastic c...

Zoo cure heals humans
One of the highlights of my trip to Tanzania in 2012 was visiting the Ngorongoro Crater and Conservation Area. They have the largest lions on the planet. I got very close as part of my invitation by the director of park services. Along with elephants, lions, gazelles and zebras, I got to see wildebeest, the almost-extinct black rhino and giraffes. I was lucky enough to photograph this giraffe on my trip to Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. I am always awed when I see these magnificent creatures in their native environment.

Cholesterol Vaccine?
I saw this headline not long ago and it made my jaw drop. “Daily statin use to lower cholesterol may soon be a thing of the past.” I thought maybe — finally — the war on cholesterol was coming to an end. It wasn’t. Instead, it turns out Big Pharma is doubling down on cholesterol drugs. They’ve found a new multi-billion dollar scam. Let me explain… Statins have been blockbusters for the drug companies. Worldwide sales hit $34 billion in one year. But most of these drugs have come to the end of their patents. Profits are starting to dip. Big Pharma needs another patent to replace...

Worse than liquor for your liver
Most people think liver disease only happens to alcoholics. But the truth is that being overweight or obese actually puts you at a much higher risk for liver damage than alcohol. In fact, alcohol contributes to only 6% of liver damage. But obesity contributes to 52% of liver disease. And if you’re obese, you’re 400% more likely to develop liver damage than a normal-weight individual.1 That’s why about 30% of people in America have some form of chronic fatty liver disease. It’s called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD causes painful swelling and scarring of the liver.  And I blame...

New class of molecules may protect brain from stroke, neurodegenerative diseases
(Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center) Research led by Nicolas Bazan, MD, PhD, Boyd Professor and Director of the Neuroscience Center of Excellence at LSU Health New Orleans, has discovered a new class of molecules in the brain that synchronize cell-to-cell communication and neuroinflammation/immune activity in response to injury or diseases. Elovanoids (ELVs) are bioactive chemical messengers made from omega-3 very long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (VLC-PUFAs,n-3). They are released on demand when cells are damaged or stressed.
