This undated photo provided by Amarin in November 2018 shows a capsule of the purified, prescription fish oil Vascepa. Although fish oil taken by healthy people, at a dose found in many supplements, showed no clear ability to lower heart or cancer risks, higher amounts of a purified, prescription fish oil, such as Vascepa, slashed […]Continue Reading ...
A couple of clinical trials from Harvard researchers have shown that regular consumption of fish or fish oil supplements can reduce the risk of getting heart attacks significantly. Omega 3 fatty acids contained in fish oils have been known to benefit both people with a healthy heart as well as those with heart disease who […]Continue Reading ...
A study led by La Trobe University has shown that eating fish such as sardines, salmon and trout twice a week can reduce asthma symptoms in children. Subbotina Anna | Shutterstock The international clinical trial found that children who ate the fatty fish as part of a healthy Mediterranean diet had improved lung function after […]Continue Reading ...
A team of researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Mayo Clinic have engineered a new type of molecular probe that can measure and count RNA in cells and tissue without organic dyes. The probe is based on the conventional fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) technique, but it relies on compact quantum dots […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Sept. 5, 2018 — Taking fish oil supplements during pregnancy might translate into healthier growth in children during their first six years of life, a new study suggests. “This study highlights the fact that in utero exposure can have a profound effect on the fetus that lasts through childhood,” said Dr. Jennifer Wu, an […]Continue Reading ...
August 18, 2018 Dartmouth scientists have created a more sustainable feed for aquaculture by using a marine microalga co-product as a feed ingredient. The study is the first of its kind to evaluate replacing fishmeal with a co-product in feed designed specifically for Nile tilapia. The results are published in the open access journal, PLOS […]Continue Reading ...
FRIDAY, Aug. 3, 2018 — If you love fish and you’re pregnant, new research suggests eating lots of it might help you avoid delivering your baby too soon. The researchers found that women who had the lowest levels of fatty acids from fish during their first and second trimester were 10 times more likely to […]Continue Reading ...
Fish allergy is one of the most dangerous food allergies, as it is often associated with potentially life-threatening symptoms such as anaphylactic shock. People who are allergic to fish are not only exposed to risk through eating fish but also by accidentally inhaling fish fumes in markets or restaurants or through skin contact – especially […]Continue Reading ...
The new findings “will absolutely have the potential to change the way we practice,” said Dr. Nisha Jhalani of … Columbia University Irving Medical Center.Continue Reading ...
A clinical trial led by La Trobe University has shown eating fish such as salmon, trout and sardines as part of a healthy diet can reduce asthma symptoms in children. The international study found children with asthma who followed a healthy Mediterranean diet enriched with fatty fish had improved lung function after six months. Lead […]Continue Reading ...
The first in-depth analyses of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) cycling in the Red Sea highlights the important role of migrating shoals of fish in sustaining deep-ocean microorganisms and potentially the global carbon cycle. The biological carbon pump is a cyclical process by which inorganic carbon from the atmosphere is fixed by marine lifeforms and transported […]Continue Reading ...
Fish oil supplements do not prevent heart attacks or strokes in patients with diabetes, according to late breaking results from the ASCEND trial presented today in a Hot Line Session at ESC Congress 2018 and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. In observational studies, higher consumption of fish is associated with lower risks […]Continue Reading ...
August 14, 2018 A key ingredient of energy drinks could be exacerbating some of the negative effects of binge drinking according to a new study. Many people mix energy drinks with alcohol to counteract the sedative nature of alcohol, tricking users into feeling more awake and less drunk than they really are. However, when researchers […]Continue Reading ...
July 27, 2018 University of Oregon scientists have identified brain cells vital to how zebrafish socialize. When the neurons are disabled, their orientation to one another breaks down in ways similar to socialization problems seen in humans with autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia. The neurons, which have equivalent genes in mice and in humans, provide […]Continue Reading ...
