Diet dramatically effects progression of heart failure, study finds


A new cardiovascular study from the University of Michigan is looking beyond modern western medicine. Pharmaceutical drugs for hypertension just aren't the long term answer, as many researchers look to dietary needs to solve heart health problems.

Studies Find Flu Shots Can Harm Your Heart, Infant And Fetus


Flu vaccines, according to the best scientific evidence available today, will only work against 10% of the circulating viruses that cause the symptoms of seasonal epidemic influenza. Additionally, flu vaccines have been found to elicit inflammatory reactions that may harm the human heart, the developing fetus, and the fragile immune systems of our infants. So, do the theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms?

It’s in an Apple, It May Protect Your Heart, and It’s Causing Excitement


Harvard researchers have found that a flavonoid compound in apples called rutin (it’s also found in onions, buckwheat, citrus fruits, and tea) has powerful properties that prevents blood clots in heart vessels. Rutin could prevent both the arterial clots that cause heart attacks and strokes and the venous clots that cause deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. So it works far better than existing anticlotting drugs, which only prevent clots in one or the other, and is much safer. This is getting the drug industry very interested.

Breaking News! Hand soap can cause heart failure


The newest studies show that triclosan – a toxic chemical agent found in many consumer products – impairs the ability of heart muscle fibers to contract. In the presence of triclosan – normal calcium channels are impaired and cause cardiac muscle failure. If you use soap or any other personal care products – watch out for triclosan – it’s worse than you’ve been told.

Excess sugar and refined carbohydrates found to significantly increase risk of heart failure


Common sense dictates that excess consumption of sugary drinks and foods, along with a regular diet of refined carbohydrates that convert to glucose when broken down by pre-digestive enzymes in the mouth is not only bad for the waistline, but also triggers the initial stages of many chronic diseases. Metabolic syndrome, diabetes and dementia have all been linked to too much dietary sugar intake, and now researchers have the first evidence that eating too much sugar over the course of many years dramatically increases the risk of developing and dying from heart failure.

Misguided scientists declare all-natural amino acid compound in red meat to be 'bad for the heart'


The anti-meat segment of the mainstream scientific community has come out with yet another new study condemning meat as damaging to human health, this time claiming that an all-natural, amino acid-producing substance naturally found in red meat causes heart damage. Demonstrating a complete lack of scientific rigor (which is increasingly typical of corporate-funded research these days), the new study essentially declares that l-carnitine must be responsible for an all-around increase in heart disease because saturated fat is clearly not responsible, according to the data.
