Is chronic inflammation the cause of coronary heart disease? By Dr harold Gunatillake “Globally, 9 million people die each year, from ischemic heart disease, making it by far the world’s biggest killer. Despite falling rates of heart disease, tackling it is still a stubborn challenge. -Benjamin Plackett” “Research is revealing what causes the heart to malfunction – and how to stop that from happening”. The incidence of many heart conditions in wealthy countries is declining. In the United Kingdom, for example, the rates of ischemic heart disease (IHD), myocardial infarction and heart failure have decreased since 2005. The incidence of atrial fibrillation has increased, probably because of an ageing population. Death rates for coronary heart disease (CHD) in the UK have halved since 1980, but CHD is still the commonest cause of death. The decrease since 1980 maybe because fewer people now get CHD in the first place, or because ...

Reminiscing Memories -Celebrating Shane Warne’s Life by Dr Harold Gunatillake Hello, my name is Harold Gunatillake. I am a retired cosmetic surgeon with interest in videography and compiling and presenting films. Going through my archives, I was lucky to find a footage of the Australian Cricket team when they visited Sri Lanka in September 1999, and footage of the 1st test match Australia vs Sri Lanka played in Kandy. Going through my archives, I found something interesting and I happen to be in Sri Lanka at the time Alston Koch was launching his pub at the Rock Café, and the year was 1999. At that party Shane Warne played a big part in his team and at that time the captain was Steve Waugh. This footage I am presenting in honour of the greatest wonderful cricket legend after Bradman, with whom I had the opportunity to meet at the Rock ...

Let us all be proud that we are ‘Sri Lankans’ by Harold Gunatillake Dear Readers, I would like to share this exposure published in the ‘Leader’ Sutherland shire Newspaper in NSW, which is sure to bring pride to all our Sri Lankans migrated here, bringing in much credit to our motherland. We migrated to this lucky country when the situation back home, mainly our living conditions were at its lowest. So as the saying goes,” We left the sinking ship’. Most of us still have connections with our mother country and we cannot forget the good times we had. Why I left Sri Lanka in 1972 was, mainly due to the lack of facilities in Hospitals for the proper care of patients. I was lastly, working as General Surgeon in Badulla Provincial Hospital in the early seventies. Believe me, there was a dearth of antibiotics, including saline given intravenously to emergency ...

Pfizer and AstraZeneca are winners of vaccines, But Pfizer vaccine offers longer-term protection-by Dr Harold Gunatillake Both prevent hospitalization of cases who contract the Delta variant, being vaccinated with either vaccine- prior. Total number of COVID-19 cases passes 181 million and more than 3.9 million deaths. Covid-19 has now been reported on every continent. COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Currently, there are 127 candidate vaccines. Today, there are 37 candidate vaccines in stage 3 clinical trials. So far, 19 vaccines have been authorized across several countries. Both Pfizer and AstraZeneca are winners when there are so many other candidate vaccines? There is more evidence that Pfizer vaccine offers longer-term protection. Currently, the thought in Australia is that people under the age of 60 should preferentially get Pfizer, In the UK people under the age of 40 are advised to get Pfizer. Atagi comprises independent infectious ...
