Traffic Triples Heart Attack Risk - WebMD - 0 views

  •  
    March 13, 2009 -- Whether you drive, take the bus, or bicycle, being in heavy traffic triples your risk of heart attack within one hour.

    Air pollution from car fumes is the likely culprit, suggest Annette Peters, PhD, and colleagues at the Institute of Epidemiology, Helmholtz Center, Munich, Germany.

    In a previous study, Peters and colleagues found that a sizeable proportion of heart attacks -- about 8% -- could be attributed to being in traffic.

    To follow up, the researchers interviewed 1,454 people who survived heart attacks. In the hour before their heart attack, many of the survivors had been in heavy traffic.

    Analysis of the data showed that these heart-attack-vulnerable people were 3.2 times more likely to suffer a heart attack if they'd been in heavy traffic in the previous hour.

'Fat neck' a clue to heart risk - BBC NEWS | Health - 0 views

  •  
    Measuring the thickness of a person's neck may provide as many clues to their risk of developing heart problems as measuring their waist, a study says.
    Researchers from the Framingham Heart Study found even those with relatively trim waistlines appeared to be at greater risk if they had larger necks.

Low Vitamin D Hurts Teenagers' Hearts - 0 views

  •  
    March 11, 2009 -- Low vitamin D levels greatly increase a teenager's risk of diabetes and heart disease, Johns Hopkins researchers find.

    It is becoming clear that adults who get too little vitamin D are at higher risk for diabetes and heart disease. Now, it appears vitamin D levels also affect these risks earlier in life, say Johns Hopkins researchers Jared P. Reis, PhD, and colleagues.

The Heart Scan Blog: What your doctor doesn't know about heart disease - 0 views

    What causes coronary heart disease or coronary atherosclerotic plaque, this thing that we track with heart scans? \n\nWell, here are a few little-publicized facts about heart disease that you are unlikely to hear from your When's-the-next-stent? cardiologist or the What is there besides statins? primary care doctor. \n\n(Since everybody knows that smoking is a modifiable risk for heart disease that can be readily identified, let's focus on the blood tests that reveal heart disease causes.)

Inflammation May Be Link Between Extreme Sleep Durations And Poor Health - 0 views

  •  
    ScienceDaily (Feb. 7, 2009) - A new study in the journal Sleep shows that sleep duration is associated with changes in the levels of specific cytokines that are important in regulating inflammation. The results suggest that inflammation may be the pathway linking extreme sleep durations to an increased risk for disease.

Too Little Vitamin D Puts Heart at Risk - 0 views

  •  
    Dec. 1, 2008 -- Getting too little vitamin D may be an underappreciated heart disease risk factor that's actually easy to fix.\n\nResearchers say a growing body of evidence suggests that vitamin D deficiency increases the risk of heart disease and is linked to other, well-known heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes.

Vitamin K2 and coronary plaque - Wellsphere - 0 views

  •  
    The vitamin K2 story, though still preliminary, is becoming increasingly interesting from the perspective of CT heart score reduction.
    The origin of this concept came from some unexpected observations. One, the observation that osteoporosis (lack of bone calcium that leads to fractures) arises from deficiency of vitamin K2. Two, deficiency of K2 leads to unrestrained calcium deposition in animal models, leading to heart attack in just weeks.
