first_imgA new study led by HSPH’s Dariush Mozaffarian, associate professor in the Department of Epidemiology, finds that fish oil capsules with omega-3 fatty acids failed to prevent the onset of atrial fibrillation, a heart arrhythmia that often follows cardiac surgery and increases patients’ risk for stroke.The study analyzed health outcomes from an international trial of more than 1,500 patients. Findings were presented at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association on November 5, 2012, and simultaneously published online in the Journal of the American Medical Association.The authors stated in a November 5, 2012 article in US News & World Report that the findings do not mean that omega-3 fatty acids have no helpful effect on the heart. Fish oil was shown to help decrease post-operative bleeding in cardiac patients, Mozaffarian said, and long-term benefits have been demonstrated. “If you put together all of the observational studies and all of the trials, I think there’s evidence that some fish or fish oil intake compared to none reduces death from heart disease,” Mozaffarian said.last_img read more

first_imgDPS sent an advisory email Monday warning students to beware of callers who say they are from the IRS or other services asking for money. (Adriana Sanchez | Daily Trojan)The Department of Public Safety sent an email Monday warning students about recent scams targeting international students. This past semester, 17 students lost an average of $3,500 due to these scams, and some have lost up to $16,000, according to the email. Assistant Chief David Carlisle, said scammers ask for money posing as public entities such as the International Revenue Service or the Immigration and Naturalization Service. “I’ve often said during orientation presentations, particularly to international students, that they’ll never be contacted by the Immigration and Naturalization Service saying they owe a fine,” Carlisle said. “In the last several months we’ve had a number of students who’ve been victimized that we decided we needed to put out a university-wide information bulletin to let students know to be aware of those scams.”Freshman journalism student and Shanghai native Marilyn Chang said she has not been targeted by one of these scams, but that she knows not to engage with people or entities that ask her for money. “If I ever had an interaction with any company or center or institutions like that, [I would] hang up,” Chang said. “Just don’t talk to random strangers on the phone.” Kenneth Yim, a sophomore majoring in communication from South Korea, said he learned about IRS scams last year when he was studying at Emory University.“I’m actually a transfer student and so I received IRS scam [training] from my previous university because [as] freshmen there they taught us about scams like that because they happened all the time,” Yim said. Carlisle said that scammers may target students on sites like Craigslist, and that students should arrange to pick up their orders at the DPS office if they suspect they are being scammed. In general, the email states that students who are making a transaction with a person they don’t know should request a DPS officer be present or ask the person to meet with them at the DPS station in the Downey Way Parking Structure. The email also warns students that some scammers may contact students on social media or via online chat platforms and make them believe they are entering a consensual online sexual encounter while secretly recording them. The scammers then threaten to make the video public unless the student pays them through money transfer services like MoneyGram and Western Union.“This is a criminal act known as extortion and is a serious crime,” the email read. “Scams such as these can be avoided. Do not respond to friend requests from complete strangers. Never send strangers money or give them your credit card information.” Carlisle said that if students suspect they are being contacted by scammers or have been the victim of a scam, they should contact DPS immediately.“If they feel they have been scammed and have been the victim, don’t be embarrassed. Call DPS,” Carlisle said. “We’re there to help them, and we will get the proper outside authorities involved whether it be the LAPD or some of those entities such as the IRS who have their own investigators.”last_img read more
