A Fisher of Men: The simple story of a young fisherman who answered the beckoning of his Savior to come and follow Him; a legacy left behind of a boy who is now catching men rather than fish. ************ As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into a lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him. Matthew 4:18-20
It is becoming increasingly evident that the deficiency of n-3 fatty acids in diet is not only associated with cardiovascular diseases, but also involved in stroke, epilepsy and other neurological and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, and peroxisomal diseases. In his newest book, Beneficial Effects of Fish Oil on Human Brain, Dr. Akhlaq A. Farooqui expands on the status and therapeutic importance of n-3 fatty acids (major components of fish oil) and their mediators in normal brain and those with neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases. Farooqui presents the benefits of n-3 fatty acids on Western diet, which is enriched in n-6 fatty acids (major components of vegetable oil) and may promote the above neurological disorders. The book will present readers with cutting edge and comprehensive information on metabolism and roles of neural membrane n-3 fatty acids.
Neuroscientists, clinicians, neurologists, neuropathologists, opthamologists, dietitians, and nutritionists will find this book useful for understanding the molecular basis of n-3 fatty acids and their lipid mediators (resolvins and neuroprotectins) in neuroprotection in acute neural trauma (stroke, spinal cord trauma and head injury) and neurodegenerative diseases.
