Here is part of an article I read today in a British paper. Interesting that more and more often they are coming with their own "researches" telling people their own terrific "discoveries" which in the end are nothing more than what a lot of people already knew but which were denied for decades by the mainstream medicine! What would have happened a while ago if you had heart problems and asked your doctor about taking Epsom salts baths? He would have laughed in your face but now.... They have "discovered" that it actually works! The wonders of modern medicine..... By the way, these injections have been administred for years, at least according to one of my books!
"In another development, scientists have discovered that chemicals traditionally used in bath salts could help reduce damage caused by stroke. Magnesium sulphate is thought to dilate arteries in the brain, increasing the amount of vital nutrients reaching any damaged cells. Animal studies also show it protects nerve cells from damage, though researchers are unclear how it does this. Previous research has shown that people whose diets are high in magnesium are less likely to suffer a stroke.
Magnesium-rich foods include nuts, green vegetables and beans.
In a U. S. study starting next month, researchers will directly inject the chemical into arteries of 20 stroke patients.
'Salvage of viable, but threatened, tissue could give stroke patients an increased probability of favourable long-term outcome, ' they said".
