Fish oil and aspirin could be the key to beating a host of devastating chronic diseases, according to new research.
Researchers from the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston found that
the two work together to combat the inflammation responsible for a host
of illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, arthritis and
aspirin and omega-3 fatty acids from fish are known to have an
anti-inflammatory effect on their own, but the research shows that when
taken together they can control the overactive immune responses
associated with long-term illnesses. Inflammation is the body’s natural response to injury and foreign bodies.
something harmful or irritating affects a part of the body, there is a
biological response to try to remove it, and the symptoms of
inflammation show that the body is trying to heal itself.
if the person suffering has a high-fat diet, too much body fat or is a
smoker, for example, the may not be a break from the irritants, so the
immune system can lose control, increasing risk of disease.
Long-term, inflammation can become
chronic which can then damage heart valves and brain cells, causing
strokes and promoting resistance to insulin, which leads to diabetes. It is also associated with the development of cancer.
