Exercise provides a remarkable variety of health benefits, which range from strengthening bones to positive effects on mood and helping to prevent chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease. Research dating back to the late 1980s has consistently shown that aerobic fitness may help extend lives. Yet a few studies on athletes examining whether habitual vigorous exercise might harm the heart made some experts wonder how hard people ought to push when exercising (see here and here). Do cardiorespiratory fitness levels affect longevity? A retrospective study in JAMA attempts to answer this question. The study explore...

Sound, rhythm, rate, structure, function – countless features of the heart are measured to keep it healthy for as long as possible. Recently, an army of digital health technologies joined the forces of traditional preventive tools in cardiology to counter stroke, heart attack, heart failure or any other cardiovascular risks. In the future, minuscule sensors, digital twins, and artificial intelligence could strengthen their ranks. Let’s see what the future of cardiology might look like! Fitness trackers, chatbots and A.I. against heart disease Let’s say 36-year-old Maria living in Sao Paulo in 2033 d...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Although lower-complexity cardiac malformations constitute the majority of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), the long-term risks of adverse cardiovascular events and relationship with conventional risk factors in this population are poorly understood. We aimed to quantify the risk of adverse cardiovascular events associated with lower-complexity ACHD that is unmeasured by conventional risk factors. METHODS: A multi-tiered classification algorithm was used to select individuals with lower-complexity ACHD and individuals without ACHD for comparison amongst>500,000 British adults in ...

Younger women are having more heart attacks, and accounted for nearly a third of all female heart attack patients in recent years, according to a recent study. The news compounds a string of recent findings that have pointed to poorer overall health for young American women. “Women now, compared to younger women generations before them, are less healthy,” says study co-author Melissa Caughey, a cardiovascular epidemiologist and instructor at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Medicine. “It’s probably reflective of poorer health in general.” The study, which appeared in a sp...

February 20, 2019—(BRONX, N.Y.)—A study led byAlbert Einstein College of Medicine researchers found a link between daily consumption of multiple diet drinks and higher stroke risk among post-menopausal women. The association was stronger in obese women and African-American women. The study was published February 14 inStroke, a journal of the American Heart Association.

This study showed that potential vicious cycles underlying ARDs are quite diverse and unique, triggered by diverse and unique factors that do not usually progress with age, thus casting doubts on the possibility of discovering the single molecular cause of aging and developing the single anti-aging pill. Rather, each disease appears to require an individual approach. However, it still cannot be excluded that some or all of these cycles are triggered by fundamental processes of aging, such as chronic inflammation or accumulation of senescent cells. Nevertheless, experimental data showing clear cause and effect relationships...

Authors: Skljarevski V, Ferdinand SJ, Kles KA Abstract Diabetes mellitus affects millions of people in the USA and throughout the world. The global epidemic may be attributed to both the increasing age of the population and the increasing rates of obesity. Diabetes is associated with chronic microvascular (diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy) and macrovascular complications (heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease). Patients with diabetes benefit from a comprehensive approach to prevent complications, including weight loss, smoking cessation, antiplatelet agents, and glycemic and blood pr...
