From S. Sureshkumar :

Re: A new way to fix a broken heart? (July 28): I am aware of a traditional practice in this part of the country where a concoction consisting of heart and lungs [of young goats] and some cardiac function improving herbs are extracted in alcohol and given to heart patients to improve cardiac functions particularly after heart attacks--so I cannot subscribe to the claim that this is a first of its kind, though that may be true for the formal sector doctors, and in our hospitals. But if you take traditional practices over cebturies and millenia, this is not true.
