Ozone levels linked to cardiac arrest

Ozone levels linked to cardiac arrest | Longevity science | Scoop.it

Cardiac arrests are more likely when levels of air pollution - especially soot-like particles and ozone - have been high in recent days or even hours, according to a large study from Texas.

Evidence already links airborne particles with heart disease and lung problems but the new findings are the first to show that high ozone may immediately raise the risk that a person's heart will stop beating.

Prawn Proteins Eased Blood Pressure | Longevity science | Scoop.it

One in every four American adults has high blood pressure also known as hypertension.

For decades, it’s been clear that the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in seafood (DHA and EPA) can produce a relatively small but significant drop in blood pressure.

Stents No Better Than Drugs, Study Finds

Stents No Better Than Drugs, Study Finds | Longevity science | Scoop.it
Analysis suggests stents aren't as beneficial as previously thought.

 

The analysis included results on more than 7,200 patients enrolled in eight studies between 1997 and 2005 comparing stents with medical therapy in stable heart patients with narrowed sections in their heart arteries.

 

It was time to look at updated data, according to the researchers on this case. Acting on these results could save the health care system over $9,000 per patient and cause fewer complications with the less invasive methods.

'Heart resilience' biomarker may help predict chemotherapy-induced cardiac damage earlier

By using a blend of high definition cardiac imaging and biomarkers, Ohio State University cancer and heart researchers think they may have a way to catch early heart damage caused by anthracyclines, a class of chemotherapy drugs commonly used to treat breast and childhood cancers.

Vaccine to stop heart attacks could be here in 5 years

Vaccine to stop heart attacks could be here in 5 years | Longevity science | Scoop.it
A vaccine delivered in an injection or nasal spray to prevent heart attacks could be available within five years. The vaccine can cut the build up of fat in arteries by up to 70 per cent, according to tests by researchers at Lund University in Sweden. The fatty deposits cause arteries to narrow, meaning the body has to work harder to pump blood, and can lead to a heart attack.

 

Prof Peter Weissberg, the British Heart Foundation medical director, said the vaccine was "very promising".
