Possible New Treatment for Osteo-arthritis?

The Daily Mail covers a lot of health related information, a fair bit of which is covered quite well, with the occasional mis-reported ‘howler’.

It’s been known for a while that ‘stabilising’ the membranes of the cells in the affected area is important to reduce the inflammatory cascade that is one of the hallmarks of this condition. Indeed, regular consumption of fish oils is thought to have one of its beneficial effects in this way.

Worth a try?
