Study confirms: Omega-3 consumption decreases the risk of heart disease

A recent meta-analysis of nearly 900,000 people has added even more compelling evidence to the long list of omega-3 benefits. This study looked specifically at the association between heart disease and EPA/DHA intake. The results were published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings January 2017 issue.

During organ transplantation there have been numerous reports of emotions, memories and experiences being transferred along with organ which is been transplanted from donor to the recipient.

Eating these greens can save you from a stroke or heart attack

By Lowe: Even I get bored with the message that we should eat more fruits and vegetables. But it got my attention when I saw this: Eating more leafy green vegetables could save your heart and your brain.

Research published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) looked at 20,000 people in China. What they found was that giving people additional folate, the b-vitamin in dark leafy green vegetables, reduces the risk of stroke and heart attack.

Protect your liver and heart cells from damage

Carl Lowe:A widespread lifestyle mistake can put your liver and heart cells at risk. But a study at the Medical College of Wisconsin shows how you can start protecting your organs from irreparable harm.

The problem that endangers your health is overwork and burning the midnight oil. The research in Wisconsin has identified specific cellular damage and injury to cellular genetic material associated with insufficient sleep and pushing yourself too hard to get work done.

Teach your DNA to protect your heart

By Lowe: Just because certain health problems run in your family doesn’t doom you to unavoidable illness. For instance, you can teach your DNA to protect your heart health and keep your metabolism behaving properly even if your relatives all have heart disease and diabetes.

The way to teach your DNA to behave better: Get outside or go to the gym and do aerobic exercise.

Research at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden demonstrates doing aerobic activities like jogging or cycling produces what are called epigenetic changes in your muscles.

Drop dead: Marathons can be bad for your heart

Marathon running is usually thought to be one of the healthiest activities that athletes participate in but there are too many cases where runners in a marathon die from cardiac problems before or just after finishing the race. The heart, like any muscle, needs to be exercised and taken care of to make sure it is operating at the best level for the individual involved. However, if it is made to work too hard the resulting stress can cause it to fail or beat improperly, causing irreparable damage and in some cases quick death.

Vitamin D prevents arterial plaque in diabetics to lower heart disease risk

Diabetics' risk of developing heart disease or suffering a fatal heart attack are nearly doubled due to the devastating effect of insulin dysfunction and high blood glucose levels. Experts estimate that as many as one in three Americans will be affected by diabetes through the year 2050, a strong indicator that rates of cardiovascular disease and death from heart attack will skyrocket in a linear fashion. Fortunately, diabetes and heart disease are preventable through proper diet, physical activity, lifestyle alterations and a host of natural compounds including vitamin D.
