"Making the 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.
