Fish may provide heart care clue

A fish found in the waters of the Antarctic may help scientists understand how to stop human hearts beating too slowly.
The Antarctic Cod maintains a very slow heartbeat - around 10 beats per minute.

British Antarctic Society scientists hope monitoring the fish will show how it controls its heart rate in such extreme temperatures.

The work could help understanding of how to protect human hearts in bypass operations where the heart is cooled.

Interesting stuff

Hopefully this will help cure some deaths to people worldwide... and help people with those slow heart-beat rates, and heart condition.

Awesome find.

Thing is a fish heart as I know it is diffrent to a humans i think its going to be a long time before they can find out how to bring this into effect i still think the old way of monitoring youheart

I had to read this site because I ended up with heart failure 4 years ago. What the fish do wouldn't have helped me, but I certainly help it can be of aid to those needing bypass ops etc.

And Shugo, please forgive my pixyish humour, but I found this comment hilarious ...

Cure some deaths ?

Haven't any of those scientists/researchers heard of "proper nutrition"??? I'll bet not a single one of them ever talks about the virtues of Omega-3 (EPA & DHA) fish oil and cod liver oil on not only the heart, but on the entire body. And what about the cheap, easily assimilable, and highly therapeutic ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) taken in large doses daily, which effectively cancels out the risk of arterial lesions (lesions which lead the way to the formation of plaque). And what about garlic and bromelain, excellent also for the heart as natural blood thinners? Or the hottest chili peppers, which will can effectively enliven a sluggish blood flow? Or how about raw apple cider vinegar, which provides the potassium and acids necessary to keep the blood thinned and flowing smoothly? Add raw unheated honey to the raw apple cider vinegar and you have an even more potent tonic. And what about kelp, which keeps the heart healthy and eliminates heart pain. I could go on and on.

"cure some deaths"...that was funny ROFL!
