Fatal heart attacks could be predicted years in advance after a new method of reading routine heart scans that can pinpoint those most at risk proved successful in its first major
The technology, based on analysis of computed tomography (CT) coronary angiograms, will “undoubtedly” save lives, according to its creators.
Heart attacks are usually caused by inflamed plaques – fatty deposits on artery
walls – rupturing and blocking blood flow to the heart. The challenge for doctors is knowing which plaques are most likely to cause blockages, and therefore which patients should be treated with more aggressive therapies.
In the UK, someone has
a heart attack every seven minutes. Doctors currently hope to identify the highest risk patients so they can be given preventative treatment and advised to adopt lifestyle changes.
Their Fat Attenuation Index (FAI) has been tested for the first time
in a large study published in The Lancet journal. Some 3,900 patients from Erlangen, in Germany, and at the Cleveland Clinic, US, were followed for up for ten years after they had a CT coronary angiogram. The FAI technology was found to predict fatal heart
attacks many years before they happen, with a “significantly superior predictive accuracy” compared with other methods. People with abnormal FAI had up to nine times higher risk of having a fatal heart attack in the next five years.

The widespread belief that taking omega-3 capsules will help protect you from a heart attack, stroke or early death is wrong, according to a large and
comprehensive review of the evidence.
Thousands of people take omega-3 supplements regularly and for years. The belief that it protects the heart has spread – and is promoted in the marketing of the supplements – because the results from
early trials suggested the capsules had cardiovascular benefits.
Small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, are essential for our health. Omega-3 fats are found in certain foods – most famously in oily fish such as salmon and cod liver oil, which contain
the long chain fats called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Nuts and seeds, and in particular walnuts and rapeseed oil, contain another sort of omega-3, called alphalinolenic acid (ALA).
“We can be confident in the findings of this review which go against the
popular belief that long-chain omega-3 supplements protect the heart,” said Cochrane lead author, Dr Lee Hooper from the University of East Anglia. “This large systematic review included information from many thousands of people over long periods.
Despite all this information, we don’t see protective effects.”
The researchers examined 79 randomised trials of omega-3 fats, of which 25 were considered highly trustworthy because they were designed and carried out well. The studies recruited
men and women, some healthy and others with existing illnesses, from North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Some of those who took part had been asked to eat their usual diet, while the rest supplemented it with extra omega-3 fats for at least a year.
In most of the trials, people in the supplement group were asked to take long chain omega-3 fats in the form of a daily capsule. Only a few trials looked at the effects of eating extra oily fish. Other trials asked people to consume more ALA – the
form derived from plants – which was added to margarine or given to them in walnuts.
Fish oil supplements made no difference to the risk of death or heart attacks or strokes, the Cochrane researchers found. Eating more ALA from supplemented margarine
or walnuts did convey a small benefit, but the reduction in cardiovascular events was very small.
The researchers embarked on their systematic review at the request of the World Health Organisation, which is updating its guidance on polyunsaturated fats. The belief that omega-3 supplements could protect against cardiovascular diseases came from a couple of
positive results from trials in the late 1980s and early 1990s, said Lee. “We’ve all believed it for quite a long while,” she said. “But none of the trials since have shown these results. We somehow haven’t adjusted to that data.”
Lee said there was not enough trial evidence to show whether or not eating more oily fish is beneficial – although she suspected it probably is. Extra fish replaces something else in the diet, which may be less good for you, she said. “Also
iodine, selenium, calcium and vitamin D are at good high levels and much less common in other foods that the fish might replace. And if you take an oily fish capsule you might think you have done the healthy thing and now you can relax,” she said.
Tim Chico, professor of cardiovascular medicine at Sheffield University, said it was unlikely any one element of the diet could alone prevent heart disease. “Previous experience has shown that although some types of diet are linked to lower risk of
heart disease, when we try to identify the beneficial element of the diet and give it as a supplement it generally has little or no benefit,” he said. It happened with vitamins and now the Cochrane research had shown the same thing with omega-3.
“Such supplements come with a significant cost,” he said, “so to anyone buying them in the hope that they reduce the risk of heart disease, I’d advise them to spend their money on vegetables instead.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePzJbllNCPg Published on Jul 26, 2013 The knowledge about how to repair arteries has been around since 1701. Heart disease has many causes, but the most common cause is eating too many carbohydrates per day for years. The chemistry that ensues is known and how to reverse it is also known but is not practiced in conventional medicine and rarely in alternative medicine. That's why heart disease is never cured but merely managed. Eating animal fats, saturated fats and cholesterol have never been the problem.
