WARNING: Fish Oil Increases Platelet Aggregation!

So many people are still confused by the belief that fish oil is good for you. It isn’t!

And just to remind you once again, I thought I would share with you this quote from researchers published in The New England Journal of Medicine (all the way back in 1986):

“…In patients with atherosclerosis, prostacyclin biosynthesis…fell [decreased] by a mean [average] of 42 percent during the fish-oil period.”

What does this mean in real-world English? Hang onto your hats, here comes a doozy…

Life-Systems Engineering Science analysis: For those of you who have read my books, you may recall prostacyclin (PGI2) is the body’s natural blood thinner and keeps platelets apart naturally. The last thing a heart disease patients needs or wants is a reduction in this critical substance. CVD (cardiovascular disease) patients require MORE, NOT less PGI2 as decrease will significantly increase their risk of heart attack.

You can learn more about this by picking up a copy of “The 24-Hour Diet” or “The Hidden Story of Cancer” at www.brianpeskin.com.
