Professor Kaj Winther was earlier deeply involved in cardiovascular research and medicine with special reference to thrombosis and haemostasis and worked for a period at the Harvard Medical School, Boston, on the topic “Circadian variation in Myocardial Infraction”. Later in his career he more and more focused on development and clinical testing of herbal remedies and different versions of new foods. His interest in food and herbal remedies is also based on the fact that much prescription medicine including the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID`s) are blamed for serious side effects. As many of our top athletes and more and more of the average population trying to get into a “better shape” is abusing NSAID`s, more attention should be drawn to develop new “pain-killers” without serious side effects. Here some food supplements, herbal remedies and some new foods, might be interesting to future develop – replies Kaj Winther.
