    Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg's memoir film The Fabelmans received mixed reviews after its debut, with many top critics agreeing it was 'ego-massaging' and it didn't 'touch the heart or the mind.'  Nearly two weeks after Spielberg's new film dropped in theaters on November 11, some critics seem to be torn on whether or not the film - which is largely based on director's life story - is perfectly 'dreamy' or two-and-a-half hours too long.  Many negative reviews have hammered down on the storyline being a giant 'ego massage' for Spielberg, 75, and 'only intermittently interesting.'  While more positive reviews call it a 'movie about dreams' and complimented the final scene that's so good it's 'reason enough to see a movie that, true to its title, lends a gentle fairy-tale sheen to even the most painful memories of the filmmaker’s youth.'  Legendary filmmaker Steven Spielberg's memoir film The Fabelmans received mixed reviews after its debut on November 11. His new film is largely based off his own life and is his most personal tale yet  The Fabelmans follows a young Sammy Fabelman,...
    LOTS of viruses rear their ugly heads during the winter months, including the common cold, flu and RSV. But did you know the colder season can also increase your chances of having a fatal heart attack? 1When the temperature falls your heart must work harder to keep you warm which increases your heart rateCredit: Getty A German study, published in 2013 first found that more incidences of heart attacks occurred around the world as temperatures dropped. This is because when the temperature falls your heart must work harder to keep you warm which increases your heart rate, charity Heart Research UK explained. An increased heart rate ups your risk of a heart attack. "While this is a natural process, it can be a cause for concern in those who are more vulnerable such as adults over 65, those with long-term health conditions, and those who are overweight and live less healthy lifestyles," the charity added.

    SAN MATEO — Tom Brady’s teams couldn’t do it. Neither could Lynn Swann’s. As Serra coach Patrick Walsh noted after the game Saturday, it’s not easy to go 10-0. But this collection of Padres, a superbly talented group that triumphantly navigated through road games against Folsom and De La Salle to open the season and then the West Catholic Athletic League grind, did just that. They became the first team in Serra’s long history — one that has included Brady and Swann — to go 10-0 in the regular season, completing the mission with a 43-7 thumping of Sacred Heart Cathedral. Serra took charge immediately, forcing a three-and-out to start the game and then executing a play the team had worked on in practice. On Serra’s first offensive snap, Maealiuaki Smith threw a backward pass to Michael Perazzo, who caught the ball on the right side of the field, stopped to set his feet and let it fly. The deep pass landed in Grant McGovern’s hands, and he made his way across the goal line for a 6-0 lead. Serra’s...
    Nicole Saphier, MD is a physician at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, an assistant professor at Weill Cornell Medical College and bestselling author of 'Panic Attack.' Her opinions are her own and not reflective of her employers. U.S. Senate hopeful John Fetterman's campaign released a doctor's letter last week declaring him fit to serve in public office. For the sake of Fetterman and his family, I hope that is true. But we'll have to take his physician's word for it. Because as a doctor I can tell you that letter doesn't tell us much of anything. As Pennsylvanians tune into the only debate between Fetterman and his Republican opponent Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday evening, they should not be led to believe his doctor's note proves a clean bill of health. It doesn't. Here's what we do know. Fetterman was hospitalized on May 13th after suffering a near-fatal stroke. Two days later, his campaign revealed that fact to the public as he was on his way to winning his party's nomination. Thankfully, Fetterman does appear to be on the road to...
    Florida's top doctor has urged men aged 18 to 39 not to get a Covid vaccine, claiming the jab significantly raises their risk of dying from heart conditions. Dr Joseph Ladapo, the state's surgeon general, said the mRNA jabs raise the risk of a cardiac-related death by 84 per cent among young men. The vaccine-skeptic official cited a Florida Department of Health analysis to back up his claims — but scientists say it contains major statistical flaws. In a tweet that was censored over the weekend before being reposted, Dr Ladapo  said Florida would 'not be silent on the truth'. He now becomes the most high-profile doctor to break ranks from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who says the Pfizer and Moderna's vaccines are safe for the vast majority of healthy children and adults.  But in recent months Denmark and Norway have banned Covid vaccines for non-seniors, and last month Sweden stopped recommending vaccines for 12- to 17-year-olds. Independent scientists have criticized the Florida paper cited by Dr Ladapo, describing its methodology as 'incredibly flawed'. One of the main...
    A 79-year-old lawyer who was accused of murdering his 21-year-old singer wife has died in a Mexico City prison. Jesús Hernández Alcocer complained to prison guards that he was not feeling well before he suffered a heart attack Tuesday morning. The Mexico City Attorney General's Office said it is investigating the cause of death. The high-profile attorney was rushed to a clinic inside the prison facility and went into cardiac arrest while doctors treated him. He was declared dead at 10:45 a.m. local time. The high-profile attorney had allegedly shot folk music singer Yrma Lydya on June 23 before he tried running away with his security guard in tow moments before being apprehended by police. Hernández Alcocer opened up about the troubled relationship in a rare jailhouse interview with Mexican news outlet Milenio that was published September 12.  He claimed that Lydya was not the woman he had been married to. 'I know that talking about a dead person is wrong, they should be remembered for all the good they did, but I don't know who I married,' Hernández Alcocer said....
    If a country had an extra $216 billion lying around every year, do you think it might be able to do some good for its citizens? Perhaps it could establish new educational programs or develop a more sustainable infrastructure. How about an extra $147 billion each year? Could a nation use that to help improve the lives of its people in some way? I think the answer to both questions is a resounding yes. So, you may be shocked to learn that, according to the CDC, heart disease and stroke are costing the United States “healthcare” system $216 billion each year. Moreover, these two conditions cost $147 billion in lost job productivity annually.  Are you interested in knowing the annual economic costs of other chronic conditions? As per the CDC: The cost of cancer is expected to reach $240 billion by 2030. The cost of diabetes was $327 billion in 2017. Obesity costs the United States almost $173 billion each year. Arthritis cost $303 billion in 2013. In 2020, Alzheimer’s disease cost the United States $305 billion. By...
    New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman said that those close to Donald Trump predict he will run again in 2024 but many say his 'heart's not in it.'  'The second he says he's not, he's irrelevant,' Haberman explained to Politico.  'Everyone I speak to around him says that they believe he's going to run. And, not all of them, but many of them say his heart isn't quite in it.'  The reporter added: 'Now, those two things are not mutually exclusive. You can run and have your heart not be in it. However, we have seen with other people who run when their heart isn't in it, voters actually can tell you it has an impact on how you run.'

    Late rapper Coolio had steered clear of drugs and excess drinking in the years leading up to his death despite struggling with substance abuse in the past, according to a close friend.   The hip-hop star, best known for his 1995 hit Gangsta's Paradise, died last Wednesday in Los Angeles. from a suspected cardiac arrest. He was 59.  The rap artist's history of drug abuse and crack cocaine addiction led some fans to speculate he died of a drug overdose, after being found on his friend's bathroom floor in downtown LA.  But his manager said the cause appeared to be a heart attack, and a close friend also testified to Coolio's sobriety in recent years.

    Forget what you've been told — drinking two cups of coffee every day may not be bad for your health. In fact, scientists now recommend it.  For research has shown coffee lovers tend to live longer and have healthier hearts than peers who don't indulge in a daily cup of joe. And experts said the benefits were true for all types of coffee, meaning it's not just decaf drinkers who benefit from its supposed effects. The Australian researchers behind the study say their findings suggest a moderate coffee habit can be considered 'part of a healthy diet'.  Two to three coffees — the amount recommended — is in line with what the average Briton and American drinks.     Drinking two to three mugs daily — in line with the amount consumed by the average Briton and American — is linked to living longer and a lower risk of heart problems, according to researchers in Australia  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Drink for fertli-tea!

    Cholesterol is an important part of heart health to be aware of with each meal and snack you choose. Though it sounds like a complicated part of our health, it’s a pretty simple one. Cholesterol is produced in the liver, primarily by saturated fats, which is one reason a diet high in saturated fats (from animal-based foods and refined veggie oils) is said to be harmful to your heart health. Cholesterol travels through the blood via the arteries, which is why a high cholesterol diet can lead to clogged arteries that prevent proper blood flow to your heart, leading to heart disease and even diabetes. Your body can use fats from your diet to produce cholesterol on its own, which makes added (dietary) sources of cholesterol something you’ll want to avoid to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and raise good cholesterol (HDL). This is one reason why a plant-based diet is now being advised as the best diet to eat for overall heart health and longevity. Plant-based foods also improve liver function and also provide antioxidants to support the immune...
    HOSPITAL admissions for a severe Victorian disease are on the up, experts have warned. Figures suggest that around 1.5million Brits are affected by gout - which is a type of arthritis that causes severe joint pain. 1Gout can be a painful condition and most people will suffer with a severe sudden painCredit: Getty Cases of the illness have risen 20 per cent in the last three years with close to a quarter of a million people having been admitted to hospital with the condition in 2021-22, the NHS states. Earlier this year, Brits were warned that cases of Victorian illnesses had hit a five-year high. Illnesses such as scarlet fever, tuberculosis, measles and mumps have all seen an increase too.

    Rudy Giuliani's ex wife has said he is 'not the man I married', accusing him of being addicted to the limelight, obsessed with power and humiliating himself with classless television shows. Judith Giuliani, 67, was married to Rudy from 2003-19: a third marriage for them both, and one which ended in an acrimonious and extremely high profile divorce. 'We, for a long time, were a very good team,' she told Inside Edition, in a program that will air on Tuesday. 'Then things changed.' A former nurse, she said he had changed dramatically from when she married him. At the time of their wedding, he was still remembered as 'America's Mayor' - he was mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, and was highly regarded for his dynamism during 9/11. Judith Giuliani said he was now a different person. 'I can certainly tell you - the person you see now is not the man I married,' she said.

    Having a can of Diet Coke every day could raise your risk of heart attacks, science suggests. Scientists believe artificial sweeteners, also added to yoghurt, cereal and ketchup, are to blame.  Experts found people who consume just 78mg/day, similar to what is found in half a can of diet fizzy pop, were up to a tenth more likely to suffer a heart attack. They were also a fifth more likely to suffer a stroke, the study found.  In a frank warning to the public, French academics concluded they should not be considered a safe alternative to sugar.  The decade-long trial of 100,000 people, published in the British Medical Journal, adds to a growing pile of evidence suggesting that sweeteners may harm health. However, independent experts warned that the link between the sugar substitutes and heart problems are overstated — while the known dangers of sugar itself are clear.  They said it won't be possible to reach a conclusion on artificial sweeteners without larger and longer-term studies. A team of French researchers studied the eating habits of more than 100,000 people,...
    Many of us live our everyday lives with little to no attention to our autonomic nervous system. While some people like to track their heart rate with fit bits and other gadgets while they work out, most of the time, the average person is not giving the beat of their heart much attention. However, if you have ever experienced heart palpitations before, then you will have an increased awareness of your heartbeat. According to Dr. Jay Sengupta, a cardiac electrophysiologist, heart palpitations “typically refers to some awareness of one’s heartbeat, and it could mean that their heartbeat is skipping, or it could be racing.” Other people have described the experience as the heart beating heavily or abnormally. If you’ve experienced this scary sensation, it’s a good idea to pay close attention to it during and after your mealtimes. After you eat a meal, “the body increases blood flow to the digestive system, which can lead to an increase in heart rate,” says Dr. Allison Zielinski, a cardiologist at Northwestern. Although the causes of heart palpitations can vary from person...
    Regularly getting a good night's sleep slashes your risk of having a stroke, a study suggests. French researchers defined the best type of shut-eye as lasting for between seven and eight hours.  They also said the best sleepers rarely toss and turn during the night.  Scientists monitored the nighttime habits of more than 7,000 over-50s to uncover the link.  The study, which tracked participants for almost a decade, showed people with the best quality sleep were 75 per cent less likely to suffer a stroke.  Experts now say the majority of strokes — and even cases of heart disease — could be prevented if everyone was a good sleeper.  French researchers, who monitored the shut-eye habits of more than 7,000 over-50s, found sub-optimal sleep is linked to a higher risk of heart disease and stroke Those who reported getting the best sleep were three-quarters less likely to suffer heart complications than those who got the worst RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Drinking coffee may raise your risk of oesophageal cancer......

    Many of us sweat and toil in the name of having a healthy heart. We do cardio multiple times a week, get our heart rates up, start the oxygen pumping over time, and leave it at that. For those looking for a healthier heart, now is a good time to get an exercise routine going. Nothing tops an active lifestyle in terms of health. That said, we can certainly turn to food to help us in our quest. Healthy foods can have as huge an impact on a person’s good health as junk food can on bad health. In terms of cardio warriors, there are some plant-based foods, that seem just tailor-made for eating on behalf of that vital organ. Even better, they are all versatile and crazy delicious.

    They say cats have nine lives, but one woman in the US has one-upped that expression by coming back from the dead 10 times. The 63-year-old retired school teacher suffers from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) — a heart muscle disease that affects one in 500 Americans and Britons.  She was fitted with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) — a device that jump-starts the heart if it stops beating — when medics diagnosed her in 2003. They normally only get used once in a patient's lifetime, if at all.  But the unidentified woman, from Duluth in Minnesota, was saved 10 times over the space of 19 years. Her heart stopped beating for 18 seconds on one occasion. Doctors at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, said her case shows the 'power and durability of the devices' for preserving life. Danish footballer Christian Eriksen was fitted with an ICD after he collapsed when his heart stopped beating for five minutes during a European Championship game against Finland last May.  The 63-year-old retired school teacher suffers from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) — a heart muscle disease that affects...
    It has been a busy day in the Emergency Department. Doctors, nurses, and other staff are bustling about, doing their best to provide excellent care for every patient. Dialogue fills the nursing stations with background noise. I am walking from room to room, tending to several patients, performing my initial evaluation on some, and providing test results to others. As I finally take a few moments to sit down in front of my computer and do some charting, the nurse in charge hands me the EMS phone.  The paramedic at the other end of the line informs me that they are en route with a 54-year-old male having severe chest pain and difficulty breathing. They have obtained an EKG that is concerning and have given him medications to treat his pain. Their estimated arrival time at our hospital will be in approximately ten minutes.  Upon receiving this report, I spring into action. I notify the nurses, and we begin preparing a room to care for our next patient, setting up monitors, IV start kits, and other resuscitative equipment. The...
    Put the keg away. People under 40 years old should never consume alcohol as it provides them no health benefits while increasing their risk of injury and death, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Washington, in Seattle, found that people under 40 who drink are more likely to be injured in a car accident, suicide or murder than their peers that avoid alcohol. There could be some benefit to drinking for people over 40, though, as a glass of red wine each day could help reduce the risk of developing heart disease, stroke or diabetes. According to most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) 66 percent of adults in the U.S. consume alcohol every year, and five percent are heavy drinkers. Researchers found that people under the age 40 do not have anything to benefit from drinking, and should avoid it entirely if possible (file photo) 'Our message is simple: young people should not drink, but older people may benefit from drinking small amounts,' Dr Emmanuela Gakidou said in a statement.

    If life’s a bowl of cherries, then you’re in good shape – at least when it comes to taking care of your heart and warding off those aches and pains. Both dark and sweet cherries offer a large amount of sweet flavor, and antioxidants, and are a good source of fiber. They’re also a healthier choice of sugar than refined sweeteners and processed foods. If you’ve ever had the luxury of eating a cherry straight off the tree, you know there’s nothing like a fresh cherry’s flavor. However, you can still buy frozen cherries and fresh ones from the supermarket when they’re in season during the early spring and summer. If you buy frozen, you needn’t worry about the pits, but if you eat them whole, be sure you pit and stem them first. They make lovely garnishes, and additions to smoothies, cakes, pies, and bowls of oatmeal are always a bit cheerier with a few cherries added in. But how do they compare to other fruits for good health? They hold up pretty well, as it turns out…...

    More is better, right? Sometimes, but not always—particularly when food is concerned. Much of our nation have ready access to a wide assortment of foods. Go to any supermarket, and you will find shelves upon shelves stocked with food items. At first glance, this would seem like a good thing. I can’t think of many people who would want to live in a country whose grocery shelves are bare. Nobody wants to be hungry. As a child, I went to bed hungry some nights, and it was not a good feeling. Yes, scarcity of food is terrible. Moreover, going back in time in the United States, a poor diet used to be associated with undernutrition. Unfortunately, modern times in this country have seen the pendulum swing much too far in the other direction. Today, a poor diet indicates excess, especially excesses in calories, saturated fats, added sugars, and sodium. The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) truly is a sorrowful pattern of food consumption. It represents the types of foods and their associated nutrient compositions that many Americans eat.  Source:...
    Air pollution has been linked to a deadly heart rhythm disorder, according to a new study. Air pollution is connected to nearly one in five cardiovascular disease deaths. Air pollution was ranked the fourth-highest risk factor for death, according to researchers, after high blood pressure, tobacco use, and poor diet. Source: National Geographic/Youtube The research was presented in Madrid, Spain, for the scientific congress of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). The study looked at patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) which tracks their heart rhythms. The study examined the connection between air pollution and ventricular arrhythmias in Piacenza, Northern Italy, which was graded the 307th worst city for air pollution out of 323 by The European Environment Agency. “Our study suggests that people at high risk of ventricular arrhythmias, such as those with an ICD, should check daily pollution levels,” said study author Dr. Alessia Zanni, now working at Maggiore Hospital, Bologna, and previously at Piacenza Hospital, Italy. “When particular matter (PM) 2.5 and PM 10 concentrations are high (above 35 μg/m3 and 50 μg/m3, respectively), it...

    High blood pressure — also referred to as hypertension — “is when your blood pressure, the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels, is consistently too high.” When blood pressure is consistently high, it will begin to cause harm to the body by “increasing the workload of the heart and blood vessels.” If left untreated over time, the “force and friction of high blood pressure damages the delicate tissues inside the arteries” and can lead to plaque buildup of unhealthy (LDL) cholesterol. Not only is high blood pressure an indicator of future health issues — including eye damage, heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, and blood vessel damage (also called atherosclerosis) — but it can also be a red flag regarding lifestyle and diet choices that may need to be changed. Lifestyle, physical activity, and diet play major roles in the development and treatment of high blood pressure. Specifically, when it comes to diet, it’s been discovered that switching to a plant-based, whole-foods diet is a great way to manage and lower high blood...
    A man from Maryland, David Bennett, received a heart transplant from a genetically altered pig but suffered numerous complications before dying. Source: Inside Edition/Youtube Although there were no reported signs of the patient rejecting the genetically modified heart, traces of a virus that is known to infect pigs called porcine cytomegalovirus was found in the man. The 57-year-old had reportedly been extremely ill before the surgery and survived two months after the transplant.

    Our body clock affects everything from when we feel hungry to our sexual compatibility.  In the first part of our serialisation of his new book, in yesterday’s Daily Mail, one of Britain’s leading experts on our circadian rhythms explained how being aware of these patterns can revolutionise our health. Today, he tells of another of its life-changing powers... Awareness that we have a body clock — or circadian rhythm – dates from 1729 when the French astronomer Jean-Jacques d’Ortous de Mairan noted how a mimosa plant placed in a room with no light still unfolded and folded its leaves.  Now, more recent scientific developments on circadian rhythms are helping to improve our lives. Over the past few decades, the study of human body clocks and how they govern our lives has come on leaps and bounds. I began work in this area 40 years ago and even I am sometimes astonished by the speed of progress in our understanding. It is deeply frustrating, though, that this knowledge is not being translated into clinical practice even when many of the findings are...
    “If you were to say, starting from when we can hear the heart, like when the heart is really doing something, that would be different. That’s not six weeks, though,” Oz said at the time. Barnette continued, "I am wondering if the good doctor has now since changed his position on that. My life is valuable and so are the many lives that find themselves in the womb of their mother, whether in the womb or towards the end of that life." Trump-endorsed Oz insisted that his work as a physician could not permit him to approve of abortion. "I was a heart surgeon, I operated on small children a few days old and witnessed the majesty of their hearts pounding blood," he fired back. "I would never think of harming that child, or even nine months earlier because life starts at conception."
    Everyone wishes to have a normal blood pressure reading as it is commonly known that high blood pressure can lead to hypertension and increase your risk for a cardiac event or stroke. To fully take control of your blood pressure levels, it is important to understand what causes it to rise and how to go about stabilizing your reading. In this article, we will explore what causes blood pressure to rise, how a plant-based diet can lower and stabilize blood pressure, and how to eat and cook with these tips in mind. For more information, keep on reading! 1. What is Blood Pressure and How Does It Rise? For our bodies to function properly, our tissues and organs require oxygenated blood that has been carried by our circulatory system. When our heart beats, pressure is created that pushes blood to our arteries, capillaries, and veins. This blood pressure occurs due to two forces: systolic pressure and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure happens when blood is pumped out of our heart, while diastolic pressure occurs between heartbeats. These two forces are...
    A study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health found that people with diets high in plant-based foods reduce their risk of stroke compared to those with lower-quality diets. The researchers defined plant-based diets as rich in foods including “leafy greens, whole grains, and beans, and including lower levels of foods like refined grains, potatoes, and added sugars.” A plant-based diet can lower overall stroke risk by 10%. “Our findings have important public health implications, suggesting that future nutrition policies to lower stroke risk should take the quality of food into consideration,” said first author Megu Baden, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The study was published in the medical journal Neurology. Researchers looked at data from over 200,000 people in a study that were followed for over 25 years. “Many individuals have been increasing the amount of plant-based components in their diet,” said Kathryn Rexrode, associate professor of medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and co-author of the paper. “These results show that higher intake...
    Aspirin will no longer be recommended to mitigate the risk of a first heart attack or stroke in individuals who are 60 years old and up, according to the United States Preventive Services Task Force. The USPSTF announced the guidance on Tuesday in a statement regarding the use of Aspirin to prevent stroke and heart disease. People between the ages of 40 and 59 are recommended to speak with a medical professional before they begin using Aspirin, according to the new guidance, and individuals in the age range of 60 and up should avoid starting Aspirin use. WATCH: EX-TRUMP COVID OFFICIAL RECALLS 'DANGEROUS' DISINFECTANT INJECTION SUGGESTION "People who are 40 to 59 years old and who don't have a history of CVD but are at higher risk may benefit from starting to take aspirin to prevent a first heart attack or stroke," John Wong, M.D. said in a statement. "It's important that they decide together with their healthcare professional if starting aspirin is right for them because daily aspirin use does come with possible serious...
    Americans over 60 years old should not take a daily dose of aspirin to ward off a first heart attack or stroke, a panel of top doctors said today in a reversal from standard guidance. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) — comprised of 17 top experts from universities across America — released the update, citing a slightly higher risk of internal bleeding after taking the drug. It also said 40 to 59-year-olds must only take the medication daily if they are at a genetic risk of heart disease and after consulting a doctor. Those over 75 should not take the drugs because there is little benefit in older age. Aspirin is a common pain-killing drug that is often also used for prevention of heart attacks, blood clots, and other issues do to its blood-thinning properties. The drugs are also widely available over-the-counter for little cost when purchased generically. A U.S. task force issued new guidance saying adults over aged 60 who are at increased risk of a heart attack or stroke but have not suffered either should not take aspirin....
    LAS VEGAS (AP) — One player has been off-limits for Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel when preparing for the draft with general manager Jon Robinson: Tyler Vrabel. The Titans coach’s oldest son is a 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive lineman who was a three-year starter at Boston College, spending two seasons at left tackle and one on the right side. Asked if the Titans are considering the younger Vrabel as a prospect, the elder Vrabel said no. He and Robinson haven’t even talked about it. “I think that there’s 31 teams that are evaluating Tyler. I don’t think that’s good for anybody,” Vrabel said. The Titans coach played 14 NFL seasons himself at linebacker, winning three Super Bowls with the Patriots. As coach, Vrabel has been a proud parent able to wear BC gear and cheer for his son during his college career. Now his son could hear his name called, even if he has to wait until Saturday. Mike Vrabel is staying in dad mode, excited to see what’s next for his son. “That’s really what I’m trying to do,” Vrabel...
    (CNN)After years of recommending regular aspirin to prevent heart attack and stroke, scientists now see little benefit for most healthy people, and say it may contribute to a risk of bleeding in your stomach or brain that goes up as you get older.The US Preventive Service Task Force has finalized its latest recommendations on low-dose aspirin regimens and now says people over 60 should not start taking a daily aspirin for primary prevention of heart problems, in most cases. If you are between 40 and 59 years old, the USPSTF leaves it up to you and your doctor to decide whether you should take a daily aspirin in specific circumstances. Heart inflammation condition looked like heart attack in kids, pediatrician says"If you are really healthy, if you're a healthy 40-year-old with no major risk factors, you will do more harm than good with daily aspirin. Your risk of bleeding will exceed the benefits," said Dr. Steven Nissen, chair of cardiovascular medicine at Cleveland Clinic, who was not involved in the new guidelines. "People need to understand that aspirin is...
    THE number of Brits living with a deadly heart condition has risen by nearly three-quarters in two decades, experts warn. Medics claim an ageing population and the obesity epidemic fuelling the surge. 1The number of Brits living with a deadly heart condition has risen by three-quarters in two decadesCredit: Getty - Contributor Annual diagnosis of atrial fibrillation hit 202,333 in 2017 – a rise of 72 per cent from 117,880 in 1998.

    People who live in busy cities have a significantly higher risk of suffering cardiac events possibly linked to an invisible danger: ‘noise pollution.’ Source: Tech Insider/Youtube A study from Rutgers’ Robert Wood Johnson Medical School found that one in twenty heart attacks in urban settings may be linked to noise pollution. Noise pollution cannot be seen, but it is more dangerous than many would think. Noise pollution could be any sound that affects the health of humans and other organisms. It is present on land and in the depths of the ocean. The scientists delivered their findings at the American College of Cardiology’s 71st Annual Scientific Session. Dr. Abel Moreyra, a professor of cardiology at Rutgers, told South West News Service in a statement, “When people talk about pollution, they’re usually talking about particles in the air or water,” he said. “But there are other forms of pollution, and noise pollution is one of these.” Moreyra and his team of scientists found an astonishingly higher rate of heart attacks amongst people with high noise exposure due to transportation....
    The first colonists arriving on Mars will have to be hardy and prepared for a difficult, cramped environment and lots of hard work, warns SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. Speaking to Chris Anderson, head of TED conferences, Musk said it won't be for the faint of heart, and in the beginning at least 'will not be luxurious'. The world's richest man has been vocal about his goal of making humanity a multiplanetary species, including developing rockets to colonize Mars by 2050.  He hasn't said a lot on exactly what will be involved, beyond work to build the massive Starship rockets, and a goal of sending the first humans this decade.  Life 'will be dangerous, cramped, difficult, hard work,' Musk told Anderson, adding that 'it will be dangerous, cramped, difficult, hard work,' for the first visitors. Musk estimates a one way ticket to the Red Planet will cost the first generation of colonists $100,000, which he describes as 'relatively affordable for most people'.  Speaking to Chris Anderson, head of TED conferences, Musk said it won't be for the faint of heart, and...
    A KREMLIN conspiracy is underway after it was a claimed a senior defence chief was struck down by a "massive" heart attack "not from natural causes".

    A Russian-Israeli businessman has claimed Russia's defence minister Sergei Shoigu has suffered a heart attack, which he suspects was caused by foul play. Shoigu, who has been Putin's right hand man and leader of the Russian army for a decade, was a mainstay in the early weeks of the war in Ukraine but recently disappeared from regular Kremlin briefings. There had been suspicions of tensions between Putin and Shoigu in late March over the invasion's slow progress, with US intelligence suggesting the pair fell out when Putin learned of the extent of Russian losses in Ukraine. But Shoigu, 66, is now thought to be in intensive care after suffering 'a massive heart attack' which 'could not have occurred due to natural causes', according to Leonid Nevzlin, suggesting Putin's longtime ally may have been the subject of an assassination attempt ordered by his boss. Shoigu was last seen on yesterday on a video conference with Putin and other ministers about the development of the Arctic but did not speak, and there is speculation the Kremlin is using previously recorded footage of...

    THE idea that the odd tipple is good for the heart is a myth and should not be promoted, scientists have warned. Even drinking within current health guidelines increases the risk of cardiovascular disease. 1The idea that the odd tipple is good for the heart is a myth and should not be promoted, scientists have warnedCredit: Getty Cases of high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke rose among all drinkers — compared to teetotallers. The risk increased even among those who kept within the recommended limit of 14 units a week. The findings are based on 371,463 Brits from the UK Biobank study, containing detailed information on genes and health. Dr Krishna Aragam, of Massachusetts General Hospital, said: “Reducing alcohol intake will likely reduce cardiovascular risk in all individuals.” Globally, cardiovascular disease claims almost 18 million lives a year - more than any other illness.

    The first time I saw CPR being performed was on TV. I was in my teens – it was probably the American medical drama ER. Maybe it was Casualty.  There would always be a frantic scene of a medic pumping away at a patient whose heart had stopped. Someone would rush in with defibrillator paddles. Someone else would yell 'CLEAR!'  For a moment, all hope seemed lost and then the body would jolt back to life. Relief all round. The patient was up and talking, or perhaps even heading home, before the credits rolled. It was gripping, dramatic and glamorous. Years later, as a fledgling doctor working on a crash team on hospital wards, I got to see it and do it for real – and it couldn't have been more different. CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation as it's formally known, is brutal and undignified.  It's given when the heart stops – so in effect the patient has died – in the hope that it will bring them back to life. But it almost never works, because it is generally carried out...
