MONDAY, Nov. 13, 2017 -- Avoiding heart disease may be a nutty idea.
That's the conclusion of a new study of more than 210,000 U.S. adults tracked for 32 years. Researchers found that those who regularly ate peanuts, walnuts, cashews and other nuts had a lower risk of heart disease.
MONDAY, Dec. 4, 2017 -- Older adults commonly suffer damage to heart cells during various types of surgery -- even non-heart-related surgeries -- and it can significantly raise their risk of dying from the procedure, a new study finds.
The research looked at a phenomenon called perioperative myocardial injury, or PMI. It refers to subtler heart damage that can happen during or soon after any type of surgery.
THURSDAY, Nov. 30, 2017 -- Preliminary research hints -- but cannot prove -- that men who lose their hair relatively early in life might be at heightened heart risk.
The study involved about 2,000 Indian men under 40 years of age. The researchers said that men who went prematurely gray and experienced male-pattern baldness at a young age had greatly increased odds for heart disease.
TUESDAY, Nov. 14, 2017 -- Each year, millions of American heart patients go "under the knife" for various kinds of surgery. Often they're told to take a low-dose aspirin, to help lower their odds for a post-op blood clot.
But does that practice reduce the risk of additional heart problems?
