Date:6/11/2009

In the wake of British Heart week (8-15th June), Dr Jav Nazemi - CEO of Igennus, manufacturer of purified omega-3 fish oil supplements - tells how his daughter's heart condition led to the start of his business and the omega-3 EPA formula, Vegepa, which has since helped thousands of people. Igennus are donating 50 pence per tub sold this week to the Children's Heart Federation, in order to help support the lives of children affected by a heart condition in the UK.

Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) June 11, 2009 -- In the wake of British Heart week (8-15th June), Dr Jav Nazemi - CEO of Igennus, manufacturer of purified omega-3 fish oil supplements - tells how his daughter's heart condition led to the start of his business and the omega-3 EPA formula, Vegepa, which has since helped thousands of people. Igennus are donating 50 pence per tub sold this week to the Children's Heart Federation, in order to help support the lives of children affected by a heart condition in the UK.

Diseases of the heart and circulatory system (cardiovascular disease or CVD) are the main cause of death in Europe, accounting for over 4.3 million deaths each year. (1) Heart disease is the UK's biggest killer, responsible for 39% of all deaths in 2002. (2) It is still the major cause of premature death (before the age of 65 years) in the UK, accounting for 35% of premature deaths in men and 27% in women in 2002. (3) For Dr Jav Nazemi and his family, the discovery that his daughter Roxana, 12 at the time, had a heart condition caused by the rare condition rheumatic fever, was a terrifying shock and one that would have unusual consequences.

Having gone undetected for some time, Roxana's heart condition was only diagnosed because blind spots in her eye perplexed her GP, who referred her onto a paediatrician; then discovering a murmur, Roxy was again referred, this time to a heart specialist from Harefield hospital
