FDA Warns of Daily Aspirin Dangers
Aspirin shouldn’t generally be used to prevent heart attacks or stroke for patients with no history of the disease, U.S. regulators said today.
The use of the aspirin could raise the risk of bleeding in the stomach and brain, the Food and Drug Administration said in a statement. The drug can be used for patients who have already had the disease. The FDA on May 2 denied a request Leverkusen, Germany-based Bayer AG (BAYN) to change the labeling on its packaging to market the product for heart-attack prevention for patients with no history with cardiovascular disease. http://musculationreview.edublogs.org/2014/04/28/rusty-moore-visual-
Fish oil appears to boost the power of cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, new research suggests. In a study led by Brigham and Women's Hospital, researchers found a combination of statins and EPA omega-3 fatty acids provides significantly better heart-healthy effects than medication alone. The one-two combo was shown to reverse damage to so-called endothelial cells in blood vessels — a precursor to heart disease. http://www.colivia.de/story.php?title=rusty-moore-muscle-building-
The findings, presented at a meeting of the National Lipid Association in Orlando this week, are based on laboratory experiments involving human cells taken from umbilical cord veins.

"We know that endothelial cell dysfunction is emerging as an early and important predictor of cardiovascular disease and plays an essential role in plaque development. Treatments that provide beneficial effects on endothelial function could have very important implications for a patient population at high risk for heart disease," said lead researcher R. Preston Mason, of BWH's Department of Medicine. "We found that a combination of statins and EPA omega-3 fatty acid, or fish oil, had beneficial effects on endothelial cells and function."
