A study carried out by the Heart and Lung Centre at Ullevaal Hospital in Oslo has demonstrated that domesticated salmon fed with fish oil containing a large amount of omega-3 fatty acids is better for cardiac patients than salmon fed with vegetable oil (rapeseed oil).
“Cardiac patients who ate domesticated salmon fed with a large amount of omega-3 fatty acids showed reduced risk for further development of the disease,” says professor Harald Arnesen at Ullevaal Hospital. “These patients showed a significant reduction of known risk markers for development of coronary heart disease. All patients experienced a reduction of their cholesterol level. This coincides with what we already know – that salmon is a sensible part of the typical Norwegian diet.”
It is the first time that different feed for domesticated salmon was shown to affect the health of cardiac patients. The study, “From Fjord to Fork”, is a co-operative project involving the fish farm Nutreco ARC, The Norwegian Institute of Public Health, the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research, and Ullevaal Hospital, with support for the Research Council of Norway.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
