Take your aspirin every day and maybe try some fish oil! Time Magazine article

Posted by Kathy G on 2/20/04 at 12:34 (144819)

The latest issue of Time Magazine (Feb 23) has a fascinating cover story on inflammation and the link between it and heart attacks, cancers, etc. I highly recommend it.

Now I know why my PCP practically did a dance when my cholesterol was high enough for him to put me on a statin. I have long had a problem with inflammation and my body not handling it well. Ironically, I'd stopped taking fish oil capsules as they sometimes repeat on me, but I read the article and then went out and took one. They can repeat all they want if it means I can fight off this inflammation problem of mine.

It is absolutley fascinating what medical research is doing these days! We are so fortunate to be able to reap the benefit of their studies.

And, I'll bet a hundred years ago, people were saying the same thing but not via the internet!:D
