How to Keep From Having a Heart Attack: Do Less Aerobic Exercise!

By: William Wong, N.D., PhD.

That title certainly runs against the grain of everything we've been conditioned (brain washed) to believe in the last 30 years! After 30 years of lowering cholesterol, avoiding salt, taking an aspirin a day and running, what have we got to show for it? Heart disease is still the #1 killer disease in America. Plus, we now have Alzheimer's, electrolyte depletion, renal damage, intestinal hemorrhage, and severely worn joints to show for our efforts! So if all this hasn't worked - what is the real culprit behind heart disease?

Artery Cells Can Produce Heart Disease-Linked Protein

MONDAY, March 28 (HealthDay News) -- In a finding that may help improve our understanding of cardiovascular disease, researchers say endothelial cells, which line arteries, can produce C-reactive protein, a risk marker for heart disease.

Protein from Red Meat, Dairy Tied to Heart Risks

Wed Feb 9,  2005

By Amy Norton

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Older women who eat a relatively large amount of protein from red meat or dairy products may have an elevated risk of dying from heart disease, the results of a large study suggest.

The findings, say researchers, call into question the long-term safety of high-protein diets -- at least the ones that don't distinguish the protein in steak and cream from that in tofu and nuts.

Folic Acid May Prevent High Blood Pressure

Tue Jan 18, 2005

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Folic acid supplements, widely used by women to prevent birth defects, also may fight hypertension in women, perhaps because they relax blood vessels, researchers said on Tuesday.

Folic acid occurs naturally in substances such as orange juice and leafy green vegetables and is added to some products, but only high-dose supplements seem to affect blood pressure, the report said.

"This is the first major study to show an association between folate intake and p

Diabetes Raises Mortality After Coronary Bypass

Fri Dec 24, 2004

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People with type 2 diabetes have a higher likelihood of dying shortly after undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery, even when a number of risk factors are taken into account, new study results indicate.

For people with diabetes and heart disease affecting several coronary arteries, bypass surgery is considered preferable to angioplasty, Dr.

Depression Often Afflicts Heart Failure Sufferers

Mon Dec 27, 2004

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - About 1 in 5 people suffering from heart failure become clinically depressed, and four factors seem to increase the risk, researchers reports.

"Depressive symptoms in patients with heart failure are strongly associated with a decline in health status and an increase in the risk of hospitalization and death," Dr. Edward P.

Anger or Startling Event May Trigger Stroke

Mon Dec 13, 2004

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Negative emotions and anger, as well as sudden changes in body position in response to a startling event, appear to be factors that can trigger a stroke, according to a new study published in the medical journal Neurology.

"We know a lot about risk factors that make people more likely to have a stroke in their lifetime, such as smoking and high blood pressure, but until now we haven't had any information on what causes a stroke to occur at a particular
