Nesaranews Mission Statement

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different
 sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be 
considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Nesaranews is to help all people become better 
truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose 
of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just 
believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. 
 Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you 
can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority 
on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of 
you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all 
information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also 
encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a 
group discernment process. Not to bash publishers!

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought 
without accepting it." – Aristotle

Study: Olive oil could help failing hearts

Study: Olive oil could help failing hearts

A new study found that olive oil improved the hearts of rats with heart failure. More research is needed, but the findings could have implications for humans as well.
The study, published in the journal Circulation, removed hearts from rats with heart failure to study the effects of fat on the hearts. The scientists kept the rat hearts beating, treating some of the hearts with oleate, a substance is found in olive oil and canola oil, and some with palmitate, a substance found in palm oil, animal fat, and dairy products.
The hearts reacted differently to the two types of fat, leading researchers to believe that the oleate in olive oil could have a positive effect on heart health. The hearts that were given palmitate "looked like failing hearts," E. Douglas Lewandowski, study author and the director of the University of Illinois at Chicago Center for Cardiovascular Research, told Time. But in the hearts that were given oleate, the cells' fat content was restored to normal, and the hearts "contracted better and showed normalized genes that help in fat metabolism."
"We didn't think it would have such profound effects," Lewandowski told Time. "When we think about normalizing the metabolism, it's so far upstream of so many disease processes that it's very exciting."
In humans, heart failure develops over time as high blood pressure makes it difficult for the heart to pump blood, Time notes. More research, especially on humans, is needed, though, to conclude that olive oil will have similar effects on human hearts as it did on the rat hearts.
