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.

Research proves bad eating behaviors of children can lead to heart disease later in life

Heart failure is considered to be one of the top killers for men and women across the United States. This year alone, more than 900,000 people in America will have a heart attack. What's interesting is that research is now showing that heart disease can actually stem back to eating behaviors at a very early age. In simpler terms, children are predisposing their bodies to developing heart complications by the foods they choose (or are given) to consume.

Antibacterial agent in common household products shown to weaken the heart and muscles

Found in a variety of soaps, hand sanitizers, fabrics, toothpastes, mouthwashes and even tap water, researchers have discovered triclosan is far from harmless. Linked to heart failure and decline in muscle strength, the agent has come under scrutiny due to its widespread use in common household products. Considering the Environmental Protection Agency estimates over one million pounds of the chemical are produced each year in the United States, such excessive daily exposure has researchers worried - and for good reason.

Job-related stress is a significant risk factor in the development of heart disease

Heart disease is a largely preventable chronic illness that is the leading killer of men, women and children in many western societies. Researchers and alternative medical experts have identified a long list of dietary and lifestyle factors that work together to promote development of the disease and validate lifestyle modifications that reverse vascular dysfunction and dramatically lower the risk of succumbing to heart disease.

Does salt cause hypertension and heart disease?

From cradle to grave, most people are poorly educated about how to avoid cancer, heart disease plus many other degenerative conditions. While extreme dieting techniques and dangerous drugs are popularized in the media, we simply don't hear enough about the healing power of whole (unrefined) organic foods. For example, should we eat salt? The controversy continues to this day...

New research: Acupressure and yoga help serious heart problems

Have a serious heart rhythm problem and trying alternative and complementary approaches to help? If so, the odds are you might well be told by your mainstream doctor and even family and friends that those therapies are "quackery" and you need to totally rely on Big Pharma drugs or surgery. However, news from an international cardiology conference could hopefully change those outdated opinions about therapies like acupressure and yoga.
