Health: Way To Prevent Heart Disease

Berrybeat 心欢 heart disease

Heart disease is a group term for heart conditions such as coronary artery disease (CAD), arrhythmias, heart failure and congenital heart disease. They have their respective symptoms and treatment. Despite the myth that women have a lower risk of getting cardiovascular diseases, both genders have an equal opportunity of getting these diseases.

A study was conducted in 2017 to 2020, with 8,500 men and women between 40 and 79 years of age with no history of heart disease. The European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the Asian Pacific Society of Cardiology and the Asean Federation of Cardiology arranged a meeting in Singapore where these findings were presented by doctors.

Their advices varied according to genders:
– Men: higher levels of bad cholesterol (have to focus on lowering it)
– Women: lose weight, reduce salt intake, increase frequency of exercise, cut fat and calories

It is important for both genders to focus on moving the body and getting at least 150 minutes to 300 minutes (moderate intensity) or 75 minutes to 150 minutes (vigorous intensity, aerobic physical activity) weekly. It is also important to consume a diet rich in plant-based foods (whole grains, legumes etc) and reduce salt intake.

Will “go for a run, starve a tumor” be the next piece of folk wisdom for people with cancer?

A new study published in the journal Cancer Research suggests aerobic exercise could help reduce the risks of certain cancers from developing or recurring.

Hundreds of epidemiological studies, comprised of millions of participants, provide strong evidence that regular, daily activities like brisk walking significantly reduce the risks of 10 to 20 percent for bladder, breast, colon, endometrial, esophageal adenocarcinoma, and renal and gastric cancers.

Hawthorn contains a variety of phytonutrients such as cathechins, maslinic acid, hyperoside, isoorientin, isopipex and saponins. The taste of this berry is slightly sweet, sour and smells aromatic. Studies have shown that hawthorn can promote heart function and dilate blood vessels so that more oxygenated blood can reach the heart. Other functions include reducing cholesterol and preventing the narrowing of the arteries. This fruit is commonly associated to treat most heart conditions in traditional Chinese medicine due to its numerous herbal properties.

Remember, it is important to take care of your heart health by paying attention to the diet and reducing the cholesterol intake. Do consult a healthcare professional before incorporating any new ingredients in your diet.
