The Mediterranean diet can cut the risk of heart disease, particularly in women

A recent study found that following a diet similar to that of the Mediterranean can cut the risk of heart disease, particularly in women, and that following such a diet on a consistent basis can cut the risk by up to 25 percent.

Olive oil and other healthy fats, fruits and vegetables, low-fat meats, and lean cuts of meat are all components of this diet plan. The diet that gets its name from the countries that are located around the Mediterranean Sea and tend to consume more of these foods is known as the Mediterranean Diet. Greek yogurt, berries, salmon, extra-virgin olive oil, green leafy vegetables, beans, and low-fat milk are all examples of foods that fall into this category.

According to a report in the journal Heart, this has been looked into with thousands of women. The Temple University Institute of Heart Disease conducted the study, which ran from 2003 to 2021 and included 16 small and large studies.

In total, more than 70 thousand women have been included in it. Then there’s this long study that lasted 12 years that found that women who made this type of diet their routine reduced their risk of heart disease by 24 to 26 percent.

Although these studies have been conducted on women, experts believe that it can have the same effects on men as well, on which further research is ongoing

All types of olive oil contain 70 to 80 percent of oleic acid. Now experts from the University of Seville, Al-Jaraf Institute and Costa del Civil Hospital in Spain have done an important study. According to scientists, oleic acid is found in the form of fatty acids in olive oil and has proved to be very useful for the heart.

Oleic acids energize cell membranes and molecules and also play an important role in antioxidants. Then in a very deep way, it prevents cholesterol, thus protecting against blood thickening and heart disease. On the other hand, to reduce inflammation in the body, it contains important components that repel the attack of cancer.

Prevention of Obesity

Oleic acid also plays an important role in preventing obesity and obesity. Apart from this, they also protect DNA abnormally. The same research has shown that olilithinol amide, an important component derived from oleic acid, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Experts believe that this ingredient can be an important drug in preventing obesity. Apart from this, it also strengthens the immune system by keeping the cells in the best condition.

A biogel that repairs damage caused by heart attacks

Scientists have made a new bio-gel that can be injected into a patient’s veins to repair the damage done by a heart attack. The gel starts to work as soon as it gets into the patient.

A gel that repairs damage caused by heart attack

This group of researchers at the University of California, San Diego, has been trying to make this biomaterial for more than ten years.

In 2012, scientists made the hydrogel and then tested it on pigs. When the liquid went into the pigs’ bodies, it formed a mesh of fibers. Later, scientists made a gel that could be injected into the body by taking out the bigger pieces from the hydrogel and adding water to slow down the flow.

When this gel gets into the body, it fills in the gaps and speeds up the process of the blood vessels getting fixed.

The idea worked when it was tried out on mice and pigs. In tests, the gel fixed damage to the heart and reduced inflammation. Now, scientists want to test the gel on humans in the next year or two.

Karen Christman, a bioengineer at the university, said that the team of researchers thought the gel could be used right away to save and rebuild some tissue after a heart attack. In the December 29 issue of Nature Biomedical Engineering, the team talked about their research.

Changes in sleep times can lead to increased heart disease

A recent but lengthy study by US scientists has found that changes in sleep duration and timing by middle and older people increase their chances of developing fatty disease in the arteries, including heart disease.

According to research, changing sleep times and duration for two hours a week by middle- and middle-aged people increases their chances of developing atherosclerosis.

Atherosclerosis, although not a disease, is a serious problem that causes other dangerous diseases, including heart disease and stroke.

In atherosclerosis, the arteries of a person become greasy, due to which the arteries are not able to transmit blood properly to different parts of the body and usually in the above condition, blood is not transmitted properly to the internal organs within the boundaries of the heart, neck, brain and chest, which sometimes leads to sudden death.

According to the research published in the medical journal Jaha, American experts studied 2030 people to find out the change in sleep duration and timing with atherosclerosis.

During the study, the experts tied a bandage in the hands of all the volunteers, which monitored their sleep duration, times and breathing, heart rate and blood pressure during sleep.

Half of the volunteers in the study were women, aged between 45 and 84, and the average age of the volunteers was 69 years.

After the research, the experts came to the conclusions after checking the changes during sleep in all the volunteers, including their sleep duration and times.

The results showed that changes in sleep duration and timing were directly related to atherosclerosis.

Experts noted that people who changed sleep times for up to two hours a week had a clear chance of developing atherosclerosis.

Similarly, people who changed the duration and timing of sleep by one and a half hours a week were also likely to increase atherosclerosis.

According to experts, changing the duration and timing of sleep for half an hour a week does not increase the chances of atherosclerosis.

The experts also called for more research to find a link between sleep duration and time with atherosclerosis, heart disease and stroke.

Previous research has proved that lack of sleep increases the risk of serious diseases like blood pressure and diabetes.

According to a medical study conducted in China, drinking tea or coffee reduces the risk of stroke and reduces the risk of dementia.

New research on tea, conducted by the Chinese Tianjin Medical University, has revealed new results.

The study looked closely at more than 365,000 healthy volunteers between the ages of 50 and 74. The study included volunteers from 2006 to 2010 who were part of the study by 2020.

Volunteers involved in the research provided their own tea and coffee drinking data to scientists on coffee and tea use.

Out of more than 365,000 volunteers, 5,079 had dementia and 10,053 had at least one stroke during the study.

Research has shown that daily consumption of 2 to 3 cups of coffee, 3 to 5 cups of tea or 4 to 6 cups of coffee and tea can reduce the risk of stroke or dementia.

Research has shown that people who drink 2 to 3 cups of tea or coffee a day have a 32% lower risk of stroke and a 28% lower risk of dementia.

According to the researchers, the results of this study conclude that moderate consumption of coffee or tea in older people has a significantly lower risk of fatal disease (a disease more prevalent in older people), stroke and dementia. Does

According to researchers, daily consumption of 3 cups of coffee or tea or both is beneficial for mental health as well as heart function.


Strawberries can be very beneficial for maintaining heart health.

BOSTON: At the annual berry conference in the US, experts reported finding more proof that strawberries can enhance heart health.

According to Illinois Institute of Technology professor Burt Burton Freeman, cutting out fruit from the diet can increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease. Strawberries, however, can fill this gap and are essential in keeping the heart healthy in this regard. But it’s crucial to consume a full cup of strawberries each day.

Eating strawberries lowers oxidative stress, internal inflammation, and bad cholesterol. Additionally, the blood pressure also stays within normal limits. Researchers also discovered that eating strawberries improved several clinical markers of cardiovascular health.

Another study revealed that strawberries can be regarded as a therapeutic food because they regularly consumed help adults avoid type 2 diabetes. On the other hand, eating just eight strawberries a day will provide you with the vitamin C you need, and eating regularly will help keep your heart healthy.

Discovery of new causes that increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes in men

Middle-aged men with severe anxiety and depression are at increased risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes in the coming years.

This was revealed in a new medical study conducted in the United States.

Research from the Boston University School of Medicine found that anxiety in men is linked to a biological process that increases the risk of heart disease and metabolic diseases (diabetes, blood pressure, bloating, etc.).

According to research, this can happen in childhood or adolescence.

To find out, the researchers examined data from people involved in an aging study, a long-term study of the aging process in men.

The new study included 1,561 men who averaged 53 years in 1975, who did not have coronary heart disease or cancer at the time, and whose anxiety and mental health were also assessed.

People who suffer from mental anguish and anxiety often experience more intense fear, anxiety, sadness and anger, which also affects health, as it can lead to loss of control over daily activities, the researchers said. ۔

Their 2015 follow-up data also looked at factors that increased the risk of heart disease and metabolic diseases, such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood fat levels, obesity, empty stomach, blood sugar levels and inflammation.

The results showed that people with anxiety and depression often had a higher risk of heart disease and metabolic disease.

In men, the risk increases between the ages of 30 and 80, the researchers said.

The findings were published in the medical journal of the American Heart Association

Common habits can lead to conditions like diabetes, cancer, heart disease, and stroke

But are you aware of how the body is impacted by spending 6 to 8 hours a day sitting still?


People spends the majority of their time sitting down during the day.

But are you aware of how the body is impacted by spending 6 to 8 hours a day sitting still?

If you have this habit, be aware that it can lead to a variety of illnesses.
The following are the impacts on the body, and certainly, engaging in some form of physical activity for a few hours each day is the greatest method to prevent them.

According to a Simon Fraser University and Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences study published in June 2022, if a person spends more than eight hours a day sitting down, their chance of developing heart disease rises by 20%.

According to earlier studies, persons who spend more time sitting have a double the risk of developing heart disease, having a heart attack, or having a stroke than those who are physically active.

Risk of dying young

Spending more time sitting during the day raises your risk of dying young from any cause.

Spending more time sitting has a negative impact on mental health as well since it increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure, and cholesterol, all of which contribute to mental decline. Sitting for seven hours a day cannot be reversed, not even with seven hours of activity every week.

Sitting in a chair all day raises your risk of developing diabetes, just like it does for any disease.

Although the cause of this is unclear, medical professionals think that increased sitting alters how the body reacts to insulin, which raises blood sugar.
Clots of blood The danger of blood clots in the legs is also increased by prolonged sitting.

The best strategy to prevent this blood clot from developing is to avoid sitting down for an extended period of time.

Do you watch TV more frequently now? Are you having trouble using social media or the internet? If so, you should also be ready for obesity or body weight growth.

Spending more time in front of a screen can also cause anxiety since it interferes with sleep, which in turn heightens mental and physical anxiety and eventually results in an anxiety disorder.

In a similar vein, social anxiety is linked to spending more time in front of the TV and less time with friends and family.

A bad sitting posture that stresses the neck, spine, and waist puts too much pressure on these structures.
The waist suffers when you sit for too long, even on a comfortable chair.

Bone fragility
People who are not more physically active are more likely to develop bone brittleness as they age and become unable to perform simple daily tasks.

Doctors advise engaging in physical activity for a few hours each day to prevent this.

Lung or colon cancer may potentially result from this behavior.
In actuality, the risk increases the more time you spend sitting.

How do you defend?
If you work in an office, get up every 30 minutes and take a short walk. Make exercise a habit at home and take the kids on a walk outside the house.

What moment of the day can be heavy on the heart?

Going to work and dropping children to school is the most stressful time of the day, according to a new survey.

A survey of 2,000 people in the UK found that the most stressful time of the day for these people was 7:23 a.m.

They were also asked what are the 50 most stressful events in a typical day. The most common responses were getting stuck in traffic, falling on clothes and opening the eye late.

Research conducted by The Rescue Remedy of Advertisement UK found that older people face approximately three stressful events on a daily basis.

“Whenever we think about drama, we think of a big event, but this research shows how little things affect our mood,” said Zozina Bastikova, global brand head at Nielsens, which owns Rescue Remedy.

He said that we know that poor sleep at night can spoil the whole day and problems during the day often spoil the night’s sleep. So it is not surprising to see that the morning is the time when the first ‘drama’ of the day takes place.

The survey found that the primary causes of daily stress included fatigue in 46 percent of people, 36 percent said disturbed nighttime sleep, and 33 percent said busy days on the job.

In the survey, people said that after experiencing these stressful events, 32 percent of people suffer from depression, 23 percent from confusion and 21 percent from fatigue.

Experts warn that when we are under constant pressure, it activates the body’s ‘fight or run’ (fight and flight) mode. This increases adrenaline, which increases heart rate and blood pressure. In this case, the amount of cortisol can also increase, which can cause an increase in the amount of sugar in the blood and pose a risk to our health.

New Research Findings : What are the effects of eating one egg daily on the body?

If you want to avoid heart disease, including heart attack and stroke, diabetes type 2, then make it a habit to eat eggs.

This was revealed in a new medical study.

Research published in the journal Nutrition states that eating 5 or more eggs per week helps to avoid heart disease.

The study also found that people who eat more eggs also have a lower risk of getting affected by type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

For this research, experts examined the data of a study that started in 1971 and involved more than 5,000 people.

Their health was assessed once every four years to see if they were suffering from heart disease or any other disease.

Each time during the medical examination, these people were filled out questionnaires and a record of egg-eating habits was also compiled.

After analyzing the data, the researchers discovered that eating 5 or more eggs per week did not have any negative effects on blood sugar or blood pressure.

In fact, they discovered that eating eggs in moderation improved blood sugar levels, while reducing the risk of high blood sugar and type 2 diabetes.

According to the researchers, such people also have low blood pressure levels and a lower risk of suffering from high blood pressure, which helps to avoid heart disease.

Researchers said that the results prove that the use of eggs does not have an effect on blood sugar or blood pressure, but making them a part of the diet protects against various diseases.
