American Heart Association reports Home-based Walking Program eases clogged Leg Arteries

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – A home-based exercise program helped people with clogged leg arteries walk farther and faster, according to new research in the Journal of the American Heart Association. The program was beneficial even 12 months after participants started the program.

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Healthcare providers should treat unhealthy behaviors as aggressively as they treat high blood pressure, cholesterol and other heart disease risk factors, according to an American Heart Association science advisory published in Circulation.

NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope observes Big Weather on distant Hot Jupiters

 

Written by Dr. Tony Phillips
Science at NASA

They speed around in orbits a fraction the size of Mercury’s, blasted on just one-side by starlight hundreds of times more intense than the gentle heating experienced by Jupiter here at home.”
