This study sought to investigate what could be learned from how these men have fared. The men were born in 1925-1928 and similar health-related data from questionnaires, physical examination, and blood samples are available for all surveys. Survival curves over various variable strata were applied to evaluate the impact of individual risk factors and combinations of risk factors on all-cause deaths. At the end of 2018, 118 (16.0%) of the men had reached 90 years of age. Smoking in 1974 was the strongest single risk factor associated with survival, with observed percentages of men reaching 90 years being 26.3, 25.7, ...

Authors: Aronow WS Abstract Automated validated devices should be used for measuring blood pressure (BP). The 2017 American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) hypertension guidelines recommend that a systolic BP between 120-129 mm Hg with a diastolic BP less than 80 mm Hg should be treated with lifestyle measures. These guidelines recommend treatment with lifestyle measures plus BP lowering drugs for secondary prevention of cardiovascular events in persons with clinical cardiovascular disease and an average systolic BP of ≥130 mm Hg or an average diastolic BP ≥ 80 mm Hg. These guidel...

In this study, we developed and tested various antimicrobial polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/tea polyphenol (TP) composite films intended to extend the shelf life of packaged strawberries. Each PVA/TP film with volumetric ratios of 10/0, 9/1, 8/2, 7/3, 6/4 and 5/5 was prepared using tap-casting methods and characterized with respect to its infrared spectrum, tensile strength, oxygen permeability, water solubility, biodegradation, and antimicrobial properties. The effects of the various composite films were subsequently evaluated based on the fruit's weight loss, decay rate, firmness, pH, titratable acidity, and soluble solids. The...
