The importance of depression and psychological distress as a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD), is widely recognised, particularly in post-acute myocardial infarction patients. In this issue of Heart, Virtanen and colleagues1 report an original contribution to this field studying the long-term association of CHD and cardiovascular risk factors with levels of psychological distress over the patient’s lifetime, including symptoms of depression and anxiety. Using seven assessments of psychological distress over a 21-year follow-up of 6890 participants from the Whitehall II cohort study, the authors used group...

Arianna's dedication to raising her daughters and creating the Huffington Post had led her, like many of us, to forego sleep. Her sleep deprivation then caused her to collapse and injure herself-- a literal wake up call that convinced her it was time to make a change. Through sleep research, Arianna has learned that sleep is equally, if not more, important to success as hard work. Her new book, "The Sleep Revolution: Transform...

CONCLUSIONS: Cessation of sexual activity in patients with IHD after a hospitalisation due to coronarography is associated with their older age, being single, obesity, lower quality of life, depression, higher level of anxiety, and lower acceptance of illness. Underestimating or omitting the realm of sexual health of hospitalised patients with IHD affects the patients' return to sexual activity. Patients with IHD, who decided to discuss, during their hospitalisation, the impact of cardiac disease and the invasive procedure they had undergone on their sexual activity, more frequently return to sexual activity over the 6-mon...

Conclusion This large study has identified numerous risk factors associated with a person's risk of death within five years. Researchers used this information to develop an online tool that predicts someone's risk of death within the next five years. The study's strengths include its large sample size and the prospective nature of the study design. But there are some limitations. There may be some bias in the type of people who volunteered to take part. The death rate was lower than that of the average population in this age group, which may indicate that the participants were more interested in their health and so had he...

It's no secret that here at The Huffington Post, we love sleep -- and for good reason. Sleep has been called the "third pillar" of health, along with nutrition and exercise.

Over the past 10 years, sleep has finally become widely recognized as a critical aspect of good health, and new research has shed more light on its importance in our lives.
