3. A. Interactions of wine drinking with omega-3 fatty acids in patients with coronary heart disease: A fish-like effect of moderate wine drinking. *The purpose of this metabolic study was to see if an increase in omega-3 fatty acids level in the blood was another coronary-protective effect of drinking wine. Subjects with CHD were split into two groups, one with a diet high in levels of plant omega-3 fatty acids (ALA), and one with a diet low in ALA. Daily ethanol intake, expressed as percentage of total energy, was calculated and the levels of plant and marine omega-3 fatty acid were carefully watched in both groups. Patients in each group were categorized according to their ethanol consumption. In both groups, the marine omega-3 fatty acid levels increased with alcohol consumption. In this study, the association between wine and omega-3 fatty acid levels was significant in both high and low ALA groups. B. Alcohol consumption and risk for coronary heart disease in men with healthy lifestyles.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
