Here’s why, according to our reviewers: The research can’t tell us if risk for heart failure has been reduced in these study participants.
Nor does it establish what is meant by “heart aging” and how that has been “reversed” by the intervention.
Headline: Choose Omega-3s from fish over flax for cancer prevention, study finds Study: Researchers measured tumor growth in mice with an aggressive form of breast cancer that were fed varying types of omega-3s.
Our review: Who’s supposed to “choose” the omega-3’s? Or humans who prematurely base their dietary choices on rodent studies? there’s no conclusive evidence that eating fish reduces cancer risk, and no mouse study can prove otherwise.

The ability to leave comments expires after a certain period of time.Our review: The headline states the device “might help slow Alzheimer’s,” but this concept was tested on just three people, and there was no control group to compare the results against.Our reviewers concluded: “We think this study was one of those that isn’t quite ready for a consumer news audience; it’s just too preliminary and has the potential to stoke false hope.” Study: An implantable device (called “Inspire”) was used to treat obstructive sleep apnea, and appeared somewhat effective for some people in the study (which was published in 2014).We will delete comments that include personal attacks, unfounded allegations, unverified claims, product pitches, profanity or any from anyone who does not list a full name and a functioning email address.We will also end any thread of repetitive comments.Our review: The headline makes the device sound like a lifesaver, and the story cites a medical professional who calls it a “cure,” “revolutionary” and a “game-changer”–without telling readers that the doctor is a consultant for Inspire.There is also no objective medical assessment of the device’s effectiveness, as the medical professional quoted is also the treating physician.This file contains an index of articles that appeared in Klamath Falls newspapers in the early 1900s.
