Fish oil is useful for arrhythmia?Consumption of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are rich in marine fish, can reduce the risk of fatal arrhythmias, reported in the online edition of Circulation for 3 June. Dr. Alexander Leaf and his colleagues (Central Clinic of Massachusetts, Boston) compared the influence of two polyunsaturated fatty acids (Pufas), eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA), cardiomyocytes 1-2-day-old rats. In cell culture myocytes continued not only grow, but also spontaneously, rhythmically and synchronously reduced. Then the cell culture was affected by both EPA and DHA, and pruritogens toxic substances. It was found that the addition of EPA and DHA to a toxic agent prevented arrhythmias, and after it is contributed to their speedy relief. Currently, the American heart Association recommends the consumption of at least 2 times per week meals containing fat of marine fish. "People who have a family history burdened by disease, or those who already suffer from coronary disease should additionally take the fat of marine fish - 600 mg of EPA and DHA every day," advises Dr. Leaf. "It is known that at the population level increase in the consumption of omega-3 PUFA decreases the incidence of sudden coronary death," reminiscent of an editorial article in the same room Dr. David S. Siscovik and his colleagues (University of Washington, Seattle). "Clinicians, researchers and public health it is time to give due attention to this issue and actively introduce new dietary approaches into practice," write the authors..
