Welcome to the July newsletter. This newsletter aims to provide information and analysis of timely topics from recent articles published in the medical literature. I hope you find this information useful and helpful in your health journey. If you have comments or questions, please let us know!
Heart disease is the top health problem. In previous newsletters, we have discussed methods of detection. This month We will look at ways to prevent the progression of heart disease. The first study examined the most important factor in the progression of coronary artery plaque. It will not be what you think it is, but this factor increased risk 4X if it was higher than it should be. Since we all will develop heart disease if we live long enough, this article is of interest to everyone.
After the first article, we will know what we need to control to reduce our risk of heart disease progression. The second article shows us something we can do to improve our risk without medication.
Finally, we will look at a more vigorous option which is great for maintaining body weight (very important) and also getting a great low-impact workout that can be intense enough for any athlete.
I hope you enjoy these articles!
