Heart Diseases: UK Has the Highest Heart Disease Rates of the World

One of the highest rates of death due to heart disease in the world affects the United Kingdom (UK). According to statistics, one British adult dies from the disease every three minutes; meanwhile stroke ranks third as the country's biggest killer, causing the death of 70,000 men and women each year.

Experts explain that heart attacks happen when blood flow is closed, often because a blood clot occurs, while strokes when a blood tube in your brain suddenly are caused by blocked or burst of blood vessels. 


Heart Diseases: Heart attack, the most common heart disease II

A heart attack, which is the most common consequence of a heart disease, can be recognized not only by three symptoms in the previous article mentioned, but also be recognized by other warning signs, such as unusual chest, stomach or abdominal pain, nausea or dizziness, cold sweat or paleness, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, weakness or fatigue, palpitations, and unexplained anxiety. 

It is very important to be calm when a relative, friend or person has a heart attack, since you will have to know what to do if something like this happens.

By altering the signaling pathway of the natural hormone leptin, Johns Hopkins researchers say, doctors may one day be able to minimize or even reverse a dangerous enlarged heart condition linked to obesity. Their report is published in the August 12, 2003, issue of the journal Circulation.


The Cow & The Coronary

by Robert Cohen 

It's NOT the fat and cholesterol, it's milk protein that is implicated as the leading cause of America's number-one killer coronary heart disease (CHD) 

A new study published in the International Journal of Cardiology (2003 Feb;87(2-3):203-16) explores the epidemiology, biochemistry and immunology of heart disease and milk consumption. 

The authors, Moss & Freed conclude that death rates from coronary heart disease (CHD) are positively correlated country-by-country with milk consumption, particularly with that of the non-fat variety.&


Diet and Disease:

Not What You Think
by Sally Fallon and Mary G. Enig, Ph.D.

Heart disease is America's major killer; it's prevention is our most urgent public health priority. Americans must change their diet, say the experts. Steer clear of traditional foods like butter, cream, cheese, eggs, and meat, they tell us. Rich foods contain cholesterol and saturated fats — "artery clogging substances."


New Device Lowers Heart Attack Risk

Tue Sep 24, 2002


WASHINGTON (AP) - An experimental device that acts like a miniature drill and vacuum cleaner partially broke up clogs inside diseased heart arteries and sucked out the debris, letting doctors conduct angioplasties that were a little safer for their patients, researchers announced Tuesday.

Angioplasties restore blood flow through clogged arteries with a balloon-tipped catheter threaded inside the blood vessel and inflated to push back blockages.
