What is better for the Human Heart Health

Fish Oil with Essential Fatty Acids or Aspirin ?

Note Fish Oil also lowers bad cholesteral , because it binds to the cell
wall and holds cholesteral to the cell wall not the blood stream , where it
belongs

Don't get me wrong aspirin has some very good health benefits but
advertising that aspirins is for heart health , is misleading people,
aspirin can not cure heart problems , but a proper diet with essential fatty
acid omega 3 will heal a troubled heart.

EFAs are essential like iron or other minerals ,yet lacking in most of
American diets,


Below is an internet story about a commercial merger from bayer, that I just
saw on TV claiming to TRUST BAYER for Heart Health, maybe if Bayer said a
proper diet with essential fatty acids and a bayer asprin has been proven to
help our hearts, I might believe the claim , but aspirins alone can only
thin the blood, not disolve the cholesteral plaque in heart veins, whereas
Essentail Fatty Acid omega 3 does.

Nutrition: Fish That Your Heart Will Love
By JOHN O'NEIL

Published: July 20, 2004


hen it comes to heart health, not every dish of fish is created equal,
according to a study released yesterday. The study found that eating a lot
of tuna or other broiled or baked fish was associated with lower rates of a
common heart ailment, while eating a lot of fried fish or fish burgers was
not.

The researchers noted that the finding did not prove cause and effect, and
that the difference probably had more to do with the kind of fish being
eaten than the way it was cooked.

Fish that is fried tends to come from varieties with lean flesh like cod or
pollock, said the lead researcher of the study, Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian of
the Harvard School of Public Health. Tuna, salmon and other fatty fish that
are rich in oils that have been linked to a variety of cardiac benefits, are
rarely served fried, Dr. Mozaffarian said.

The study, published in the journal Circulation, was based on a survey of
the diets of 4,815 people with an average age of 72. Over the 12 years of
the study, 980 people developed atrial fibrillation, a condition in which
irregularities in heart rhythm lower the amount of blood that is pumped.

After taking into account factors like overall diet, race, weight and age,
the researchers concluded that people who ate tuna or other broiled or baked
fish up to four times a week were about a third less likely to develop
atrial fibrillation than those who ate such fish less than once a month. By
contrast, people who ate a lot of fried fish or fish burgers had a slightly
higher risk of developing the condition than those who did not.

Cod Liver Oil?as Close to an Elixir as We May Ever Find
More Than Any Other Single Supplement, Cod Liver Oil Helps Reverse Disease
and Build Health
by Ron Schmid, N.D.

"elixir?a preparation supposedly able to prolong life indefinitely?a
supposed remedy for all ills."
?The Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary

Cod liver oil is the richest source of several nutrients in which most
people are deficient. These nutrients include EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid),
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and natural vitamins A and D. Deficiencies are a
major contributing factor in the development of nearly all of the illnesses
that plague human beings eating refined foods. Evidence substantiating these
statements is presented in other articles posted on this web site.

When people start taking cod liver oil, the body basically says, "Good
God, where have you been all my life?" Things often start to change quickly,
particularly when the cod liver oil is part of the overall program I've
described. The omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) influence prostaglandins
that regulate every system,
