Women’s Cardiovascular Disease more accurate Risk Factor - Free Assessment Test Online

Researchers have determined a fined tuned method of predicting a women’s chance for developing cardiovascular disease. The study was first published in the February 14th issue of JAMA.

Previous guidelines for a women’s risk for cardiovascular disease was determined between 1956 and 1966. These researchers found that age, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, and high cholesterol levels were major risk factors for developing coronary heart disease.

While these guidelines offered some help, there still remained around 20 percent of women that had a major coronary event that did not have these determined risk factors. And at the same time the researchers of the new study point out that many women don’t have coronary events even if they have the risk factors present.

(Best Syndication) Taking a siesta or midday nap may reduce your risk of dying from a heart attack, according to researchers in Greece and the USA. The study was prompted by the fact that mortality rates from coronary heart disease are lower in the Mediterranean region and in parts of Latin America where siestas are common.

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and the University of Athens Medical School (UAMS) in Greece evaluated 23,681 individuals living in Greece who, at the beginning of the study, had no history of coronary heart disease, stroke or cancer.

A new study suggests that coffee can reduce the risk of inflammation and cardiovascular disease. This is more good news for coffee drinkers. Researchers have known that both coffee and tea are high in antioxidants which help remove unstable molecules in your body called free radicals.

Free radicals contribute to the oxidative process and over time can cause inflammation and other unhealthy changes in your cells. This study involved 27,000 postmenopausal women and concluded that by inhibiting inflammation, the drink will also inhibit cardiovascular disease.

(Best Syndicaiton) Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) say that fewer women died of heart disease in 2004 than 2003. This continuing trend since 2000 is largely due to better treatment methods, according to the government researchers. But they warn that obesity rates may cause the death rate to increase.

There were more than 654,000 Americans who died from coronary heart disease (CHD) in 2004. CHD is still the leading cause of death in both men and women. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that in 2003 7,017 out of every 100,000 women over 45 died from the disease.
