Case for Emu Oil in the
Prevention of Coronary Artery Disease"

Heart disease remains a major cause of premature
death despite a dramatic decline in many Western countries over the
last 25 years. In addition to obesity and smoking, a number of risk
factors have been linked to heart disease including:
High low density lipoprotein (LDL) levels
High triglyceride levels
High blood pressure
Low high density lipoproteins (HDL)
An increased clotting tendency
Each of these metabolic risk factors can be
regulated by dietary changes, particularly by alteration in
dietary fat intake.
Consumption of emu oil will help balance the
excess quantities of saturated fat in most diets.
