More Evidence Fried Food Ups Heart Disease Risk

People who ate fried foods one to three times a week had a 7% higher risk of heart attack and stroke compared to those who ate fried foods less than once a week. For those who ate fried foods daily, the risk jumped to 14% higher.

Authors: Alves-Ferreira J, Rocha-Neves J, Dias-Neto M, F Braga S Abstract Objetives: Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is an established treatment for carotid stenosis (CS). However, this procedure is not risk-free and it is insufficient to control disseminated atherosclerosis. Our aim was to determine long-term cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality after CEA and identify associated risk predictors. DESIGN: Consecutive cohorts of CEAs performed between 2010-2018 in two Portuguese hospitals were retrospectively analysed. The major end-points were acute myocardial infarction (AMI), stroke, all-cause death and ma...

Malondialdehyde (MDA) is by-product of lipid peroxidation as in oxidized low-density lipoprotein. We here studied the association between IgG antibodies against Malondialdehyde (anti-MDA) and risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke, angina and myocardial infraction in this cohort. Low levels of IgG anti-MDA conjugated with human serum albumin concentrations were measured by Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA). The association between IgG anti-MDA. 84 month's follow-ups were conducted in Stockholm County for 60-year-old men and women in which the risk factors associated in the screening of cardiovascular events f...

Looking for clues about the health of your brain? You might want to pay a visit to your eye doctor. Research increasingly links common eye conditions — glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy — to risk for Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. What’s interesting about the study results, says Dr. Albert Hofman, chair of epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, is that cataracts, another common age-related eye condition, had no apparent connection to dementia risk. This gives scientists an important clue about the cause of dementia and Alzheimer&rs...

Conclusions: The direct analyses of emissions reductions estimate substantial health benefits via coal power plant emission and PM2.5 concentration reductions. Differing responses associated with changes in the two exposure metrics underscore the importance of isolating source-specific impacts from those due to total PM2.5 exposure.

(CNN) — The red meat or white meat debate is a draw: Eating white meat, such as poultry, will have an identical effect on your cholesterol level as eating red beef, new research indicates. The long-held belief that eating white meat is less harmful for your heart may still hold true, because there may be other effects from eating red meat that contribute to cardiovascular disease, said the University of California, San Francisco researchers. This needs to be explored in more detail, they added. Non-meat proteins such as vegetables, dairy, and legumes, including beans, show the best cholesterol benefit, according to t...
