Stay at Home
  • If you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus illness (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started. (See ending isolation section below for more information)
  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
  • It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
  • For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. (See ending isolation section below for more information
  • If you can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

Fish Oil capsules may not slow mental decline

This news report was referring to a Cochrane review which looked at the effects of omega 3-that’s essential fatty acid we get from fish oil-for the prevention of dementia in health older people. These were healthy participants over 60 with ‘healthy’ brain function. The three trials they looked at had over 3,500 participants. Half were given omega 3 and half were given placebo such as olive oil. What they were measuring was whether there was any benefit in supplementing with omega 3 in cognitive function and they didn’t find any.

But if you look at the research closely, there was no evidence whether omega 3 affected new cases of dementia so the potential effect on dementia remains unknown. The headline misrepresents the conclusion of the study-we don’t actually know if omega 3 does reduce dementia or not.

It was also not long enough to draw the stated conclusion. It was for 40 months which is not enough time to prove changes in cognitive function. I’m going to continue to take my omega 3 supplementswww.newlifehealthcare.co.ukand hopefully we will see longer trials proving benefit. Of course taking oily fish at least twice a week as part of a health diet is highly recommended.
