Healthy People Shouldn ’ t Take Daily Aspirin To Prevent Heart Disease, Review Finds
(CNN) — Still taking a daily aspirin to ward off heart attacks? You might want to think again, according to a new review. Aspirin is still one of the most commonly used medications in the world, even though it’s no longer recommended as a preventative by many health authorities. There is no evidence that low-dose aspirin — less than 325 milligrams a day — should be taken by most adults in good cardiovascular health, according to a new review of existing research that published Wednesday in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. The review, which focused on the risks and benefits of low-dose daily asp...

Consider the Promises and Challenges of Medical Image Analyses Using Machine Learning
Medical imaging saves millions of lives each year, helping doctors detect and diagnose a wide range of diseases, from cancer and appendicitis to stroke and heart disease. Because non-invasive early disease detection saves so many lives, scientific investment continues to increase. Artifical intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize the medical imaging industry by sifting through mountains of scans quickly and offering providers and patients with life-changing insights into a variety of diseases, injuries, and conditions that may be hard to detect without the supplemental technology. Images are the largest source...

Survival in Adversity: Trends in Mortality Among Blacks in the United States, 1900-2010.
Authors: Hahn RA Abstract The goal of this study was to analyze trends in black age-adjusted mortality rates (AADR) from 1900 through 2010 and to propose explanations. Analyses included a descriptive study of trends in AADR from major causes for blacks and age-specific all-cause mortality at each decade. In 1900, all-cause AADRs were higher for blacks than whites. Over the century, differences decreased substantially. Reductions mortality were greatest among young people, lowest among older adults. Deaths from infectious diseases showed the greatest decrease. Heart disease mortality among blacks increased from 1920...

Cardiac Transplantation for Cancer Involving the Heart
Cardiac Cancer (CC) that arises from or involves the heart can present as heart failure, chest pain, stroke or another thromboembolic event. Although patients with CC have limited treatment options, in other organ cancers such as hepatocellular carcinoma, liver transplant improves 5-year overall survival in carefully selected patients1. For CC, however, the benefit of replacing the cancerous heart is uncertain because one-year survival is generally estimated around 50% after this rare operation.

Coronary artery calcification scoring system based on the coronary artery calcium data and reporting system (CAC-DRS) predicts major adverse cardiovascular events or all-cause death in patients with potentially curable lung cancer without a history of cardiovascular disease
In conclusion, the CAC-DRS score on non-gated standard CT can predict incident MACEs and/or all-cause death in patients with potentially curable resected lung cancer. Lung cancer survivors with a greater CAC-DRS category may need more active management of cardiovascular risk factors.

Adults at high-risk of severe coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) in Brazil
CONCLUSIONS Proportion and total number of adults at risk of severe Covid-19 are high in Brazil, with wide variation across states and adult subgroups. T hese findings should be considered while designing and implementing prevention measures in Brazil. We argue that these results support broad social isolation measures, particularly when testing capacity for SARS-CoV-2 is limited.

Cancers, Vol. 12, Pages 1285: Genome-Wide Association Meta-Analysis of Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms and Symptomatic Venous Thromboembolism during Therapy for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and Lymphoma in Caucasian Children
Conclusion: This represents the largest GWAS meta-analysis conducted to date associating SNPs to VTE in children and adolescents treated on childhood ALL protocols. Validation of these findings is needed and may then lead to patient stratification for VTE preventive interventions. As VTE hemostasis involves multiple pathways, a more powerful GWAS is needed to detect combination of variants associated with VTE.

Reduction in saturated fat intake for cardiovascular disease.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings of this updated review suggest that reducing saturated fat intake for at least two years causes a potentially important reduction in combined cardiovascular events. Replacing the energy from saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat or carbohydrate appear to be useful strategies, while effects of replacement with monounsaturated fat are unclear. The reduction in combined cardiovascular events resulting from reducing saturated fat did not alter by study duration, sex or baseline level of cardiovascular risk, but greater reduction in saturated fat caused greater reductions in cardiovascular events. ...

Explaining Health Outcomes of Asian Immigrants: Does Ethnicity Matter?
AbstractThe present study intended to evaluate whether 4 discrete ethnic groups of Asian immigrants could, for empirical reasons, be assigned a set of unique operating factors explaining health outcomes of members. The set comprised several acculturation, social structure, lifestyle, and health-related factors. Our study asked if these factorsuniformly explained health outcomes across the 4 groups.

Low Serum Eicosapentaenoic Acid Levels in Cryptogenic Stroke with Active Cancer
Since Armand Trousseau first described migratory superficial thrombophlebitis in 1865, patients with malignant cancer have been known to be in a hypercoagulable state and at risk for the development of cancer-associated thrombosis.1 Approximately 7% of cancer patients have symptomatic cerebrovascular diseases during the clinical course of cancer, and 15% have cerebrovascular lesions at autopsy.2 Previous studies have demonstrated that cancer patients with cryptogenic ischemic stroke often have high serum D-dimer levels and multiple vascular lesions and show cryptogenic stroke etiology, which seems to be due to a hypercoagulable state.

Overlooked Virus Killer
Sales of vitamin C supplements have tripled in the last few weeks… And the most powerful kind of vitamin C is sold out on Amazon. (More on that in a minute.) I’m glad to see people turning to vitamin C. But the the chewable form you usually find at the drugstore won’t give you the boost you’re looking for. You see, absorption — or bioavailability — is an issue, and your body can only absorb about 500 mg of this conventional form of vitamin C before you hit saturation. And that’s nowhere near enough. In a moment I’ll show you a better form of vitamin C… and how you can take ...

MicroRNA-126: Dual Role in Angiogenesis Dependent Diseases.
CONCLUSION: MicroRNA-126 can bind to multiple targets and potentially be both positive and negative regulators of gene expression. Thus, microRNA-126 could cause the opposite biological effects depending on the context. As a result, understanding the different cellular pathways that microRNA-126 regulate angiogenesis through them in various situations is a critical aspect in the development of novel and effective treatments for diseases with insufficient angiogenesis. So it is critical to understand its role in governing angiogenesis during pathological and even physiological conditions. PMID: 32364067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Our Diets Are Changing Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic. Is It for the Better?
The coronavirus pandemic has changed a lot about modern American life: how we work, socialize, and even how we eat. Dining out is a distant memory. But nutritionally, people weren’t exactly thriving in pre-pandemic America. “Before COVID-19 came along, it was increasingly clear that the diet quality and nutritional status of Americans was terrible,” says Dr. Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard T.H.

February is American Heart Month, and since I am writing this in February, I decided it was time to focus on heart health. Cardiovascular disease (CVD; heart disease and stroke) results in 17.9 million deaths each year and is the leading cause of death globally.1 The number of global deaths is expected to increase to 23.6 million by 2030.1 Of particular interest to our female readers, heart disease kills more women each year than all forms of cancer combined. But nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
