Gran's heart attack on jet with medics
When the stewardess put out the call: "Is there a doctor on the plane", 15 cardiologists stood up to help 67-year-old Dorothy Fletcher.
The doctors were en route to Orlando for a heart conference.
The basic answer is: we don't know. If you look at the original paper, you will find table 2, which shows that the number of people in the Apollo Lunar Astronauts group was 7 (n=7). Of those, 43% (or a total of 3) died from cardiovascular disease. In general you can't use such small sample sizes to draw conclusions in this sort of situation.
According to ...
According to this study, patients with congestive heart failure tend to unconsciously avoid sleeping on their left side, whereas healthy patients don't display this avoidance. The reason for this avoidance is unknown, though the paper offers several lines of speculation, ranging from discomfort to various forms of cardiac impairment. As far as I ...
Your reasoning is faulty. You assume that the capillaries are a single tube of length 60,000 miles. In fact they are many tubes running in parallel, so the flow of blood is divided between parallel capillaries, reducing resistance.
Further, empirically if most of the flow of blood was caused by skeletal muscles then (a) the contractions required for this ...
The graph is incorrect.
I will just look at Hungary vs. Greece for now, but other counties' data are available at the same source.
Coronary Heart Disease.....30.29%..........26.17%
In 2000-2001, 2010-2011, and 2012-2013, roughly 30% of deaths over 65 in the USA were due to heart disease (30.9, 30.5, and 29.8).
Perhaps the advertisement simply misstated the claim. Not 30% of those alive, just 30% of the deaths. Also, this is all heart disease, not just heart attacks.
As the other answer notes, overall ...
According to the mentioned study review, when used instead of butter, sunflower oil was associated with greater reduction of total and LDL cholesterl than olive oil. No other blood parameters or health outcomes were compared.
From the original paper (they included randomized trials lasting >3 weeks): Effects of oils and solid fats on blood lipids: a ...
If the question is:
Are the Apollo astronauts experiencing heart disease at a higher than average rate?
The answer is possibly, but the data is not rock-solid.
Otherwise, if you ask if the following is true:
Apollo astronauts dying of heart disease at 4-5X the rate of normal humans
This is a misreading of the original study, and is false strictly ...
There has been talk of link between gum disease and heart disease for quite some time. There is an article discussing how Streptococcus bacteria can migrate from the mouth to the heart here:
How cavity-causing microbes invade heart
A statistical study looking at tooth loss and heart disease also talks about a potential link, and seems to have eliminated ...
It is not clear whether statin treatment is beneficial in a primary prevention setting, that is in people without prevalent CVD who are at relatively lower risk. The recent results of the JUPITER trial1 have fuelled an intense debate whether statins should be given for primary prevention of CVD.
Yes, it does increase the risk for chronic diseases including cardiovascular diseases.
Red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of total, cardiovascular disease, and cancer mortality. Substitution of other healthy protein sources for red meat is associated with a lower mortality risk.

Yes, it does.
Radiation therapy is well known in the medical community to be associated with future cardiovascular problems.

Question: Does red meat increase the risk of heart disease?
My answer: Consumption of red meat was associated with increased risk of heart disease in some, but not all, studies, which suggests that some common red meat ingredient, like sodium or other preservatives, rather than red meat by itself may be the actual risk factor.
There seem to be two cases where hickeys may have caused strokes.
One in 2010 in New Zealand and one in 2016 in Mexico.
The case from 2016 is probably too recent to be mentioned in any papers, but here is the case report for the 2010 case, published by the New Zealand Medical Association:
We report on an interesting case of blunt carotid artery trauma ...
According to current research, there is no definitive evidence that root canals lead to heart attacks or heart disease. However, the reverse may be true: research suggests that heart disease may lead to needing a root canal, and is a potential source of the anecdotal evidence used to support the 'root canal causes heart attacks' idea.
In short: there is ...
Note: I could only find studies that either (1) correlated some sort of cardiovascular disease or (2) some sort of cardiovascular risk factor with skipping breakfast. Thus, there were articles that state "It is generally accepted that skipping breakfast is associated with higher incidences of cardiovascular disease." but not "Skipping ...
Stair climbing machine is pretty intense cardio exercise, but still not even remotely as intense as running a marathon, playing an ice hockey game, or playing a soccer game in hot weather. Yet those people are alive and well.
All of them have enlarged hearts.
Athletic heart syndrome - common in athletes who routinely exercise more than an hour a day - is a ...
I was expecting to find plenty of evidence to support the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology. After all:
They were written by a panel of 21 scientists and health experts who reviewed more than 900 published studies.
However, the research I found went in the opposite direction. I am not convinced that it is sufficient to ...
Some problems with that article...
A total of 30 astronauts traveled outside the magnetosphere of the earth: three astronauts on ten missions: Apollo 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 17. Not all landed on the moon, but all traveled to the moon, outside of the earth's magnetic influence, which is the premise of the article.
The study used seven lunar ...
Your article is too long to address every piece of evidence in this format where we are limited to 30,000 characters.
But there are problems even between the article and the evidence. For example, in the section on Randomized Controlled Trials on Wheat, you say:
This advice resulted on a 22% death increase:
However this result bordered on ...
