China heaviest man too big for scanners

China’s heaviest man, weighing 225-kg, can die any moment of multiple organ failure, doctors have said after they failed to conduct medical tests on him as he was too big for CT and MRI scanning machines.
Liang Yong, 30, who holds Guinness book record as the heaviest Chinese, was brought to Xinqiao hospital in Chongqing Municipality in a trolley for medical checkup after one year of confinement as he lost his ability to walk. Suffering from liver, kidney and heart ailments with a swollen face, Yong can die any moment of multiple organ failure, so his doctor Wang Lei recommended him for treatment but his body size stood in the way for every checkup, a business daily reported.

A new research has found that omega3 fatty acids found in fish, known as docosahexaenoic acid, are essential for the brain to function properly.
According to the experts, the benefits of fish oil far outweighed other risks or concerns about the presence of potentially harmful contaminants in fish such as dioxins and methylmercury, which could harm a baby in the womb.
