I heard on a segment by Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN that some doctors think any oil, even olive oil, increase risk of cardiovascular disease. Is it true?

Hello sir/mam this is arun gupta. I have an injury in my left knee. Dr. Said tht I have broken my legament and told me to do some exercise. Is it possibl?

It depends on which: Ligament you have injured. If you have torn your acl or patellar tendon typically that requires surgery. If you tore your mcl, PCL or lcl you can get away with pt and bracing and in time will improve. The exercise that is most important is one that involves quad strengthening. Leg lifts, leg extensions, squats, straight leg raisies will all help with this. ...Read more

Is it true that two patients with major brain damage made full recoveries from the use of 20, 000 mg of omega-3 per day? I saw this on cnn by dr. Gupta

Not exactly,however:: There are 2 reported cases of patients with major brain damage who were given high doses of fish oil (30 grams providing 18 grams of omega 3's) and made good recoveries, but this does not prove the recoveries were "from the use" of fish oil. It seems likely fish oil helped but more research needs to be done ; it is possible they might have recovered anyways (but probably more slowly). See comment:. ...Read more
