New American Heart Association Guidelines recommends Diets high in Fruit, Vegetables, Whole Grains and Nuts among factors to lower first-time Stroke Risk

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX –  Eating Mediterranean or DASH-style diets, regularly engaging in physical activity and keeping your blood pressure under control can lower your risk of a first-time stroke, according to updated AHA/ASA guideline published in the American Heart Association’s journal Stroke.

“We have a huge opportunity to improve how we prevent new strokes, because risk factors that can be changed or controlled — especially high blood pressure — account for 90 percent of strokes,” said James Meschia, M.D., lead author of the study and professor and chairman of neurology at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.

Austin Peay State University field biology grad student Zac Wolf earns grant award for research

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In a tributary of Tennessee’s Duck River, there lives a small fish that seems to have mastered the art of seduction. Because the females of the species prefer strong fathers, males use small yellow knobs on their fins that look like eggs to lure potential mates.

“It will fool the female into thinking he has more eggs than he really does, and she’ll spawn with him,” Zac Wolf, an Austin Peay State University graduate student, said. “It’s been shown that females prefer larger nests, or at least males with larger nests.”
