The latest study reveals that Tsimane natives from the forests of Bolivia have the healthiest hearts in the world.
The growing number of evidence of the dangers of too much time spent sitting down have researchers urging policy makers into making it a public health concern.
Disadvantaged women or those who belong to lower socioeconomic backgrounds are 25 percent more likely to suffer from heart attack than men.
Stress has been linked to a heightened risk of cardiovascular events like heart disease and stroke.
Headaches are common, but migraine headaches can be especially dangerous for women, according to a new study.
Eating the right kinds o fat could help heal the heart, according to a new study.
Researchers discovered that lecithin, which is abundant in egg yolks, can increase one's risk for heart attack and stroke.
A new study suggests that people with obstructive sleep apnea have the same early cardiovascular damage as diabetics. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common sleep disorder and has been earlier associated with cardiovascular disease. People with OSA have increased risk of hypertension, arrhythmias, myocardial infarction, stroke, sudden cardiac death and heart failure, Medical Xpress reports.
A new research suggests that one can add up to 14 years to their life if only they possess a healthy heart by the time they reach middle age. According to a new Northwestern Medicine study, when compared to people who are at risk of two or more cardiovascular disease (CVD) factors, those with a heart free of such risk may actually live longer. "We found that many people develop cardiovascular disease as they live into old age, but those with optimal risk factor levels live disease-free longer," said John T. Wilkins, M.D., first author of the study. "We need to do everything we can to maintain optimal risk factors so that we reduce the chances of developing cardiovascular disease and increase the chances that we'll live longer and healthier."
A new study by researchers from Australia, for the first time, has demonstrated that objectively measured snoring, without more serious sleep apnea, does not increase mortality or cardiovascular disease.
