Do You Believe These 7 Heart Health Myths?

Please enter your email address here The VOICE of HealthFrom Florida Hospital Apopka We sat down with Patricia Guerrero, MD, Cardiologist, to talk about heart health myths she has heard through 15 years of practicing medicine. Read on for tips to avoid them.MYTH 1: “VITAMINS WILL PROTECT ME.”Many patients believe they can eat anything if they take supplements. While some are helpful, supplements— including vitamins C and E and folic acid — aren’t proven to prevent heart disease. And some “all-natural, herbal heart-health” supplements are just hype. Garlic capsules won’t lower your blood pressure unless the ensuing bad breath keeps away those who cause your greatest stress. Instead, aim for five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily. And fish is your friend. “We still believe omega-3 fatty acids containing fish may offer some protection against heart disease, though,” says Dr. Guerrero. “High-risk women should continue to eat oily fish, such as salmon, at least three times a week rather than taking supplements.”MYTH 2: “A FEW EXTRA POUNDS CAN’T HURT.”Frequently, patients 10 or 20 pounds heavier than they should be don’t view themselves as overweight. But losing a few pounds reduces abdominal fat, a major source of potentially damaging inflammatory chemicals. Extra weight also taxes your heart by elevating blood pressure, raising LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and lowering HDL cholesterol. Lowering your body weight by just 10 percent can bring down blood pressure and reduce your diabetes risk. And remember, women with diabetes have more than double the risk of heart attack than non-diabetic women. Additionally, diabetes doubles the risk of a second heart attack in women but not in men.MYTH 3: “I ONLY NEED TO WORRY ABOUT ‘BAD’ CHOLESTEROL.”When it comes to reducing plaque, raising HDL (good) cholesterol is as crucial as lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol. In fact, Dr. Guerrero says, “every 1 percent increase in HDL carries a 2 percent decrease in the risk of heart attack.” HDL acts as a scavenger, picking up excess cholesterol in your blood and taking it back to your liver where it’s broken down. The higher your HDL level, the less “bad” cholesterol you have. Lifestyle changes work best to improve these levels naturally.MYTH 4: “AN ASPIRIN A DAY KEEPS THE CARDIOLOGIST AWAY.”If you’re over 65, aspirin may be helpful because it thins the blood, lowering your risk of clots. But there’s no evidence it prevents heart attacks in those under 65. And it can exacerbate stomach problems, causing potentially life-threatening gastrointestinal bleeding in younger women.MYTH 5: “GETTING THE MAIL COUNTS AS EXERCISE, RIGHT?”The American Heart Association recommends 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise every day. Trying to lose or maintain your weight? Then increase it to 60 to 90 minutes. This is especially important around menopause because hormonal shifts make weight loss more difficult just when staying lean becomes crucial for heart protection. Regular, moderate exercise, such as brisk walking, can help lower bad cholesterol while improving good cholesterol as well.MYTH 6: “MY BODY MASS INDEX IS NORMAL, SO I DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MY HEART.”BMI doesn’t distinguish between fat, muscle, and bone, so it’s not a good heart health indicator on its own. Pay attention to your waistline too. “Excess fat in the abdomen tends to be closely linked to higher CRP [a marker of inflammation],” cautions Dr. Guerrero. A large waist or an apple-shaped body can spell particular trouble. “If your waist circumference is over 35 inches and you have triglycerides levels above 150, you are at nearly five times greater risk of dying from heart disease,” she warns.MYTH 7: “I PASSED MY ANGIOGRAM, SO MY HEART MUST BE HEALTHY.”This imaging test, which uses X-rays to examine blood vessels, is better suited to men. Women have narrower arteries and tend to have plaque distributed evenly throughout artery walls, says Dr. Guerrero. “Men tend to develop plaque in a clump in one location, which is easier to detect on X-rays,” she explains. A study at the National Institutes of Health estimated that as many as 3 million women whose angiograms indicated they had healthy arteries could have hidden problems.

Reflections on prisons – Honoring Malcolm X & Ho Chi Minh

first_imgAutumn NightBefore the gate, a guard with a rifle on his shoulder. In the sky, the moon flees through clouds. Swarming bed bugs,  like black army tanks in the night. Squadrons of mosquitoes, like waves of attacking planes.I think of my homeland. I dream I can fly far away. I dream I wander trapped in webs of sorrow.A year has come to an end here.   Hard Is the Road of LifeHaving climbed over steep mountains and high peaks.How should I expect on the plains to meet greater danger?In the mountains, I met the tiger and came out unscathed:On the plains, I encountered men, and was thrown into prison.The Flute of the Fellow-PrisonerSuddenly a flute sounds a nostalgic note;Sadly the music rises, its tune is close to sobbing:Over a thousand miles, across mountains and rivers,Journey’s an aching grief. We seem to see a womanClimbing a far off tower to watch for someone’s return.A Comrade’s Paper BlanketNew books, old books, the leaves all piled together. A paper blanket is better than no blanket.You who sleep like princes, sheltered from the cold, Do you know how many men in prison cannot sleep all night? On the Way to NanningThe supple rope has now been replaced with iron fetters.At every step they jingle as though I wore jade rings.In spite of being a prisoner, accused of being a spy,I move with all the dignity of an ancient government official! COLD NIGHTAutumn night. No mattress. No covers.No sleep. Body and legs huddle up and cramp.The moon shines on the frost-covered banana leaves. Beyond my bars the Great Bear swings on the Pole. Clear MorningThe morning sun shines over the prison wall,And drives away the shadowsand miasma of hopelessness.A life-giving breeze blows across the earth.A hundred imprisoned faces smile once more. May 19 marks the 96th anniversary of the birthday of Malcolm X and the 131st for Ho Chi Minh. Although one was Black and one was Vietnamese and the two were from different generations and experiences, what they had in common – that continues to inspire many today — was sacrificing their lives for the liberation of oppressed peoples from racism, colonialism, neocolonialism and imperialism.  Malcolm X and Ho Chi Minh both spent part of their lives imprisoned, in the U.S. (1946-1952) and pre-revolutionary China (1942-1943), respectively. In honor of these two great revolutionaries, we share the following quotes from Malcolm X, reflecting on both his personal and political views on prisons, and Ho Chi Minh’s spoken word from “The Prison Diary of Ho Chi Minh.”   “When I was in prison, I read an article — don’t be shocked when I say I was in prison. You’re still in prison. That’s what America means: prison.”“It is only after slavery and prison that the sweetest appreciation of freedom can come.”“If you’re born in America with a Black skin, you’re born in prison, and the masses of Black people in America today are beginning to regard our plight or predicament in this society as one of a prison inmate.”“While I was in prison, I was indulging in all types of vice, right within the prison. And I never was ostracized as much by the penal authorities while I was participating in all of the evils of the prison, as they tried to ostracize me after I became a Muslim.”“The prison systems in this country actually are exploitative, and they are not in any way rehabilitative.”“They [prisons] are not designed to rehabilitate the inmate, though the public propaganda is that this is their function.”“[People] earn extra money [in prison] selling contraband, dope and things of that sort to the inmates, and so that really it’s an exploiter.” — Malcolm X (May 19, 1925 – Feb. 21, 1965) (azquotes.com) After Prison a Walk in the MountainsThe clouds embrace the peaks, the peaks embrace the clouds,The river below shines like a mirror, spotless and clean.On the crest of the Western Mountains, my heart stirs as I wanderLooking towards the Southern sky and dreaming of old friends. MoonlightFor prisoners, there is no alcohol nor flowers,But the night is so lovely, how can we celebrate it?I go to the air-hole and stare up at the moon,And through the air-hole the moon smiles at the poetHo Chi Minh (May 19, 1890 – Sept. 2, 1969) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Russia: Vladimir Putin’s damning record on press freedom

Read in English / Читать на русскомDear President Putin,You started gagging your media critics when you were first elected president 18 years ago but your efforts have intensified considerably during your latest term. Your country is now ranked 148th out of 180 countries in our World Press Freedom Index and the situation has not been as bad as it is now since the Soviet Union’s fall.You have had a tight hold on national TV broadcasting since 2001, when the ORT and NTV channels were brought under control. The television channels with the most viewers are now majority-owned by the state or by the state-owned company Gazprom. As harassment of media critics is stepped up, these channels pump out propaganda that fuels a climate of hate and paranoia towards civil society and drags down journalistic standards.Independent media outlets are confined to an ever-smaller niche and the pressure on them is stepped up whenever they manage to acquire a significant number of readers or viewers. The only independent national TV broadcaster, Dozhd TV, was dropped by the satellite and cable services in 2014. The editor of Russia’s most widely-read news website, Lenta.ru, was fired the same year, along with most of her staff. The editorial staff of the RBC media group suffered the same fate in 2016. All of these media outlets distinguished themselves by their coverage of the most sensitive stories, from the Ukrainian conflict to high-level corruption. The purge has not spared leading regional outlets such as the Siberian TV broadcaster TV2.The Internet continued until recently to be space for freedom of expression but it too has been reined in over the past few years. The criteria used as grounds for blocking access to a website without reference to the courts have grown steadily since the first blacklist was drawn up in 2012. The opposition information websites Grani.ru, Kasparov.ru, EJ.ru and more recently OpenRussia have been among the victims. What with monitoring bloggers, censoring search engines and news aggregators, regulating VPNs and forcing social networks and messaging services to cooperate with the FSB, legislation has become steadily more draconian. More and more Internet users are being jailed for the comments they post on social networks and even for their “likes.”Laws promulgated by you since 2012 have curtailed media freedom in general, not just on the Internet. They have re-penalized defamation, penalized “offending the feelings of religious believers,” penalized “inciting separatism,” expanded the definition of “high treason” and toughened “anti-extremism” legislation, which has long been used against critics. The broad and vague wording of these laws allows them to be used selectively and arbitrarily.Other reforms such as the drastic restriction on foreign investment in the media have accentuated the vulnerability of independent media outlets. The criminalization of civil society has not spared NGOs that support the media and defend press freedom, and now even threatens foreign media.Misuse of legislation to persecute critics has helped to fill prisons. We calculate that at least five journalists (Alexander Sokolov, Igor Rudnikov, Zhalaudi Geriyev, Alexei Nazimov and Alexander Tolmachev) and two bloggers (Alexander Valov and Alexei Kungurov) are currently detained in connection with their reporting. The total is greater than it has been at any time since 2000.The impunity enjoyed by those who physically attack and murder journalist is unchanging. At least 34 media professionals have been killed in connection with their work in Russia since 2000. In the overwhelming majority of these cases, the investigations have gone nowhere and the masterminds have not been identified. With five journalists killed, the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta has paid a particularly high price and continues to receive threats.You have allowed no-go zones to develop in which no pluralism survives. Chechnya and Crimea, which was annexed in 2014, are the leading “news black holes.” The effects of this situation are not just local. Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov no longer hesitates to target media beyond his borders. Do you plan to turn these regional dictatorships into the laboratories of tomorrow’s Russia? Are they the model you offer for your fourth term?To avoid going down in history as gravedigger of the freedoms guaranteed in Russia’s young constitution, you must change course. We ask you to ensure the repeal of all the draconian laws adopted during your latest term, to release the national TV channels from state control, to allow independent media outlets to operate without being harassed, and to end the climate of hatred and impunity to which government critics are exposed. And we ask you to promote judicial independence so that the courts stop acting arbitrarily and instead free all the journalists and bloggers who have been wrongfully imprisoned.We thank you in advance for the attention you give to this letter.Sincerely,Christophe DeloireRSF secretary-general June 2, 2021 Find out more May 21, 2021 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information RSF_en RSF_EECA March 16, 2018 – Updated on March 19, 2018 Russia: Vladimir Putin’s damning record on press freedom May 5, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Limerick Sinn Féin TD Maurice QuinlivanSinn Féin’s Maurice Quinlivan TD today said that this government has failed our nurses and midwives and they are not addressing the pay, recruitment and retention crisis in our health service. Deputy Quinlivan was speaking on a Sinn Féin motion that was debated in the Dáil on Wednesday afternoon.Speaking in the Dáil, Teachta Quinlivan said:“Every one of us will rely on nurses and medical staff when we are sick and at our weakest and most vulnerable during some stage of our lives.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The work these people do on a daily basis is incredible and to provide good pay and working conditions should not even be up for debate.“I always hear stories from constituents in Limerick, as to how impressive and hardworking nurses and health service staff in University Hospital Limerick are.“Staff in UHL are under severe pressure due to lack of staff, beds and investment, and they try their very best to ensure patients get the best treatment each day.“They need help from their government, and Fine Gael is absolutely not providing this.“Just last week, an 85 year old woman, Anastasia Coonan, was left on a trolley in the brand new A&E department in UHL for four days, after being admitted with a suspected stroke.“That is a horrific way to treat a woman of that age, with a serious medical condition.“It is left to the nurses to try and squeeze patients onto corridors, in a chronically overcrowded hospital, and left to the nurses to apologise to the patients and their families, when it couldn’t be further from their fault.“I often speak about the dreadful overcrowding in UHL, it’s the worst in the country, and I’ve called on Minister Harris to step in and address the chaos. Nothing has been done to alleviate the problems there. Nothing. Today 54 people are lying on trollies in UHL. Minister you’ve actually normalised this trolley crisis.“The HSE is struggling to attract home Irish nurses who have emigrated. That’s not surprising. There is a chasm to be bridged in making our system more attractive to work in, compared to other health systems abroad, and I’ve no confidence in this government doing that.“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael have consistently looked after bankers and big business whenever called on, yet left essential frontline staff such as nurses, begging for adequate treatment. It’s a disgrace.“Sinn Féin would not allow this scandal in our health service to continue. ” Mr. Quinlivan concluded.More about politics here.

Chang’s Celebrates Lunar New YearNext articleGlobal Liquid Biopsy Markets Report 2021: Analysis & Forecasts to 2025 – Screening, Diagnosis, Therapy Selection and Recurrence Monitoring – ResearchAndMarkets.com Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Local NewsBusiness Pinterest WhatsApp Pinterestcenter_img TAGS  Facebook DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The “Global Plastic Recycling Market (2020-2025) by Application, Process, Material, Geography, Competitive Analysis and the Impact of COVID-19 with Ansoff Analysis” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The Global Plastic Recycling Market is estimated to be USD 42.3 Bn in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 60.7 Bn by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 7.5%. Factors such as rising demand for plastics in various end-user industries and favorable government initiatives towards the reduction of plastic waste has strengthened the growth of this market. With the increasing awareness about global warming, plastic manufacturers are largely focusing on developing new recycling concepts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maintain environmental sustainability. Conversely, the increasing use of virgin plastics and the lack of a proper plastic collection system has hampered the growth of this market. The lack of an established waste collection and sorting system for solid waste is posing a challenge for this market. Increasing demand for recycled PET and HDPE is creating an opportunity for the Plastic Recycling market due to its low costs. Segments Covered By Application, the Packaging segment is anticipated to account as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The packaging sector makes very high use of plastics in food and beverage packaging with the rise of RTE (ready to eat) and RTS (ready to serve) products. Moreover, there is an increased demand in the healthcare sectors, which has boosted the growth for this segment. By Process, the Mechanical segment is anticipated to account as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The factors such as low prices, easy availability, and wide availability of the equipment for mechanical pressing are contributing to its growth. By Material, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) is anticipated to account as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. It is cost-efficient in terms of its recycling process, has high flexibility, which makes it suitable for use in various industries like packaging, textiles, films, to molded parts for automotive and electronics. Moreover, recycled PET and polyethylene is known for 70% of total post-consumer plastic recycling, which has also supported the segment’s growth. By Geography, APAC is anticipated to lead the market. The factors attributed to the growth of the market are rapid industrialization and the importance of waste management in countries like China, Japan, and India.
