Latest News for the Department of Surgery
Dr. Saltzman and Dr. Leonard write about research into extraction of anti-oxidants from seeds and plants
"Used properly, these oils and others carried out in an oxygen-deprived environment should be advantageous in the support of the immune system and in certain problems where inflammation occurs. Recent laboratory observations have demonstrated a phenomenon of antioxidant synergism when black cumin oil is combined with other oils. The antioxidant values of combined black cumin oil and other oil are increased over the expected weighted average of the individual component parts. Also, when more than two oils are added to the black cumin oil, an even higher antioxidant level occurs than would be expected again by the weighted average."
