Give Phil 5

ChangeStream Media (www.ChangeStreamMedia.org), dedicated to advancing social causes through media, produced this video documenting Phil Guerrero’s quest to run 1200 miles to raise awareness about heart disease. From Nov. 2011 to Jan. 2012, he’ll run from the southern tip of New Zealand to the north to memorialize his father, Philip “Cat” Guerrero, who died as a result of heart disease in 2010. As he runs an average of 30 miles a day, Phil will share what he’s learned about the dangers of heart disease, and try to inspire others to get active. He’ll also raise money for cardiovascular disease research.

From Boston – According to a report published in The Lancet, the anti-clotting medication ticagrelor has proven to reduce mortality without consequently increasing bleeding in heart attack patients. Researchers studied nearly 13, 500 heart attack patients, randomizing some to ticagrelor and placebo and others to clopidogrel and placebo for six months following hospitalization. Results showed that the ticagrelor group had a 16% reduced risk of suffering either cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction or stroke when compared to the clopidogrel group. From New York – Scientists have discovered a genetic variant that may be associated with a lower risk for dementia, according to a report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers studied 523 adults aged 70 and older, finding that those who had two copies of the CETP longevity variant had a 72% reduced risk of eventually developing dementia during the 4.3 years of the study. And finally, from England – According to a report published in the journal PLoS ONE, new research has confirmed that BPA–or bisphenol A–is linked with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Researchers studied nearly 1500 patients, finding that those who had the highest urinary concentration of BPA–a chemical compound that is used in baby bottles, food cans and water containers–were 33% more likely to suffer heart disease.

Insidermedicine.com Week In review

This is Dr. Sanjay Sharma for Insidermedicine. As head of the medical writing team, we are out there each and every day trying to bring you the latest in health and medical information. It has been an interesting week in medicine. Here is what I learned. Polypharmacy, that is the concept of taking many medicines. It is a problem in the elderly. A research paper has shown that only 13% of the elderly who are on numerous medicines take them correctly. Those who take 10 or more are at significant risk for missing doses, overdosing or taking the incorrect medicine. So for those who are elderly, or those who care for those who are elderly and who take alot of medicines, it is imperative that you develop a good system for taking medicines correctly. Another thing that we learned was a great way to lose weight. A recent study showed that moving to low calorie drinks can lead you to lose weight. By making a simple substitution you can lose up to a pound per day. This is big news for our teens. Because it is now estimated that nearly 20% of teens are obese. There have been some controversy over eating fish recently. While its benefits on cardiovascular disease are well known, PCBs contained within them can cause cancer, and mercury is known to be toxic to nerves. But a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that while there may be 24 more deaths per 100000 due to cancer from fish ingestion, you end up saving over 7000 lives from heart disease. So fish

Saturated Fat – It’s great for you!

Taken from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2010 Mar;91(3):535-46 The saturated fat found mainly in meat and dairy products has had a bad reputation, but a new analysis of published studies finds no clear link between people’s intake of saturated fat and their risk of developing heart disease. A reduction in dietary saturated fat has generally been thought to improve cardiovascular health. The objective of this meta-analysis was to summarise the evidence related to the association of dietary saturated fat with risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and cardiovascular disease (CVD; CHD inclusive of stroke) in prospective epidemiologic studies. Twenty one studies were used, during 5-23 year of follow-up of 347747 subjects, 11006 developed CHD or stroke. It was identified that the intake of saturated fat was NOT associated with an increased risk of CHD, stroke, or CVD. These studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD. “No one is saying that some saturated fat is going to harm you…people should enjoy their food,” said Dr. Robert H. Eckel, a professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. But, he pointed out, many studies have shown that dietary saturated fat can raise people’s cholesterol, and the new analysis is not going to change recommendations to keep saturated fat intake in check.

Preventing Illnesses and Diseases with Vitamin C

www.youtube.com www.encognitive.com Vitamin C – The Most Essential Nutrient Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is a vitamin only simply because it is a nutrient vital for lifestyle that is not created in the entire body and ought to be obtained from exterior sources. Each and every dwelling issue on this planet other than primates (Such as guy) and guinea pigs produce their personal Vitamin Do internally, do not require it in their diet program, and do not endure from a host of illnesses and maladies caused by Vitamin C deficiencies. Vitamin C is produced internally from glucose by a four-stage process, every necessitating a distinct enzyme. Human beings have the initial three enzymes but the fourth is broken and non purposeful apparently from a genetic mutation that occurred in our distant ancestors. It would seem that we genuinely have a species broad genetic disease. Perhaps repairing this genetic defect should be a principal goal for the genetic engineers of this century. There is a fifth phase in vitamin Do cycle, the conversion of ascorbic acid into mineral ascorbates in the liver. The cost of vitamin C deficiency is staggering. Mammals with the enzyme can are living eight-ten occasions their maturity age. Mammals without it have a difficult time dwelling to 3-4 instances their maturity age. As a result, if humans had the gene to make their own vitamin Do, the human lifestyle span could be far more like 300 many years. Human beings have cardiovascular condition and arthritis even though other mammals do not. Individuals are also a lot more vulnerable to viruses and infections than animals with their individual
