These 10 Foods Affect Your Risk of Heart Disease the Most
Just 10 foods account for nearly half of all heart disease deaths in the U.S., researchers reported Tuesday. If people ate less salt and meat and ate more nuts, fruits and vegetables, they could greatly lower their own risk of heart disease, the researchers at Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy found.
Could Your Cold Medicine Give You a Heart Attack?
When you're laid up in bed and your nose is streaming, it's tempting to use over-the-counter medication to relieve the symptoms. But you may be doing your body more harm than good. In a recent study, scientists discovered that taking NSAIDs (Non Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) for a cold, could increase the likelihood of a heart attack.
More young women are getting heart attacks — here’s why
On the morning of December 15, 2016, 37-year-old Christine Wayne woke up feeling tired and more rundown than usual. Although she had a cold that week, she thought she should feel better. The Stamford, Connecticut, woman stayed home from work and rested, but decided to keep her dinner plans with a friend even though she didn't feel right.
Women with diabetes are especially prone to developing heart disease
Women typically don't develop heart disease - or high blood pressure, one of its major risk factors - until after menopause. But "if you have diabetes, that rule no longer applies," says Christine Maric-Bilkan, a program officer in the vascular biology and hypertension branch of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
The Risk Factors For Heart Disease Also Predict Dementia
Lots of research has laid out the ties between the heart and the brain, from how exercise and nutrition affect both organs similarly to how they're similarly affected by stress and depression. And we know that heart disease and brain disease often go hand in hand.
Mothers of preemies face increased heart disease risk
(Reuters Health) - Women who have premature babies are more likely than other mothers to develop heart disease later in life, even if they didn't have any risk factors for cardiovascular problems before pregnancy, a recent study suggests. Pregnancy normally lasts about 40 weeks, and babies born after 37 weeks are considered full term.
