American Heart Association Scientific Statement

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Children ages 2 to 18 should eat or drink less than six teaspoons of added sugars daily, according to the scientific statement recommending a specific limit on added sugars for children, published in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.

Six teaspoons of added sugars is equivalent to about 100 calories or 25 grams.

“Our target recommendation is the same for all children between the ages of 2 and 18 to keep it simple for parents and public health advocates,” said Miriam Vos, M.D., Ms.P.H, lead author, nutrition scientist and associate professor of pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.

American Heart Association says Bystander CPR on Kids has increased, survival odds improve for some

 

American Heart Association Meeting Report

American Heart AssociationOrlando, FLBystander CPR on kids is increasing and is improving survival from cardiac arrest outside the hospital, according to research presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2015.

Researchers analyzed 2,176 children (infants to age 18) with cardiac arrest, drawn from a key national registry of 80 million people representing 55 communities in 23 states in the United States.  The Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) registry tracks characteristics and impact of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests.

Hands-Only CPR has just two easy steps: If you see a teen or adult suddenly collapse, (1) Call 9-1-1 and (2) Push hard and fast in the center of the chest to the beat of the disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” The American Heart Association’s Hands-OnlyTM CPR at this beat can more than double or triple a person’s chances of survival.

American Heart Association says Young Adults, Women experience only slight declines in Heart Disease Deaths

 

American Heart Association Rapid Access Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Deaths from heart disease have declined dramatically over the last few decades but young people, particularly women, are not sharing equally in that improvement, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Using data on adults age 25 and older, researchers tracked annual percentage changes in heart disease death rates between three time periods: 1979-1989, 1990-1999 and 2000-2011. Death rates in adults 65 and over declined consistently over the decades, with accelerating improvements since 2000.

Improvements in death rates have slowed in people under age 55, particularly among women. (Amiercan Heart Association)

American Heart Association says Depression linked to higher Heart Disease Death Risk in Younger Women

 

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Women  55 and younger are twice as likely to suffer a heart attack, die or require artery-opening procedures if they’re moderately or severely depressed, according to new research in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

“Women in this age group are also more likely to have depression, so this may be one of the ‘hidden’ risk factors that can help explain why women die at a disproportionately higher rate than men after a heart attack,” said Amit Shah, M.D., M.S.C.R., study author and assistant professor of Epidemiology at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. «Read the rest of this article»

Dr. Dale Brown: Heart Disease, the medical myth you don’t want to fall for

 

Marathon ChiropracticClarksville, TN – What’s the definition of insanity?  Doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.

For the past 40 years prevention measures and treatment strategies for heart disease have basically remained the same while this almost ‘completely’ preventable disease continues to devastate Americans.

Heart disease remains the number 1 killer in America, killing nearly one person every minute and every 25 seconds someone has a heart attack. Now for those that are lucky enough to survive a heart attack they will feel the financial burden of our medical system. «Read the rest of this article»
