Lower Risk of Heart Disease In Middle Age When Parent Live Past 85 – Genes May Play Role But Preventing Disease Early Important

Lower Risk of Heart Disease In Middle Age When Parent Live Past 85 – Genes May Play Role But Preventing Disease Early Important

Researcher
Dellara F. Terry, M.D.

(Best Syndication) Researchers at the Boston University School of Medicine say that people whose parents survived to age 85 or older had fewer risk factors for heart disease in middle age. Their study suggests that avoiding or delaying cardiovascular disease is helpful in surviving to a very old age.

The research published in the March 12 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals, used members from the Framingham Heart Study (FHS). The FHS began in 1948 among residents of Framingham, Massachusetts to evaluate risk factors for cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.

(Best Syndication) Belly fat may be a promoter of inflammation that can lead to heart disease and other disorders, according to researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. They found that the “fat cells” inside the abdomen secret molecules that increase inflammation.

The researchers say that the apple shaped body, where too much fat surrounds the abdomen, is a defect in the body's response to insulin. In fact, during medical exams some physicians measure waist circumference to identify patients at increased risk for these problems. But it is not the body fat that is the problem per se. Back in 2004 they discovered that removing the body fat with liposuction did not provide the metabolic benefits normally associated with similar amounts of fat loss induced by dieting or exercising.

(Best Syndication) Cocoa may have so many beneficial properties that one researcher suggests that it be considered a vitamin. Harvard Professor Norman Hollenberghas has become a proponent of epicatechin, a substance found in cocoa, and has spent years studying the benefits of drinking cocoa.

Hollenberg told Chemistry and Industry magazine reporter Marina Murphy that the Kuna people in Panama drink up to 40 cups of cocoa per week and their risk of 4 of the 5 most common killer diseases has been reduced to less than 10%. He believes that epicatechin is the key chemical that is reducing their risk of stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes.

(Best Syndication) Christa Lilly suffered a heart attack and stroke six years ago causing her to become comatose until she woke up earlier in the week. She fell back into her vegetative state on Wednesday. This is not the first time Lilly has awakened from her coma, but it was her longest period awake.

The doctors can’t explain why she awoke. Her Colorado Springs neurologist, Dr. Randall Bjork, said "I'm just not able to explain this on the basis of what we know about persistent vegetative states.” This is the fifth time she woke up since her heart attack and stroke back in November of 2000.

Left untreated, high blood pressure increases the risk for stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, heart failure and the risk for death. Tekturna is manufactured by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp.

Tekturna is the first of its kind to be approved as it has a new molecular entity (NME), which ihibits rennin which is a kidney enzyme that regulates blood pressure. The drug gained its FDA approval by demonstrating succefully lowering blood pressure with six different placebo-controlled eight-week clinical trials of over 2,000 participants that suffer with mild to moderate hypertension.
