Fat Fitness and Cardiovascular Health

On the cover of my book, The Leptin Diet, is the million dollar question, “How fit is your fat?” Scientists are now catching on to this concept and actively studying how a fit leptin system results in a fit metabolism and proper body weight that are likely to provide significant reduction in the development of cardiovascular disease.

Leptin-Weight Problems and Heart Attack: Bad Combination

Researchers measured the leptin levels in heart attack patients and found that those with the highest levels of leptin were the most non-responsive to therapies designed to thin the blood...

Waistline Predicts Heart Disease Risk

Using the fanciest and most sophisticated high tech cardiovascular imaging equipment researchers at the Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas have just saved the world a bundle of money in cardiovascular diagnostic testing. As it turns out all you need is a tape measure placed around your waist....

Lipoic Acid Reduces Hardening of Arteries, Boosts Weight Loss

R-Alpha Lipoic Acid is one of the hottest research nutrients, a powerful antioxidant that is also intimately involved in the metabolism of calories. Researchers from the Linus Pauling Institute and College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University have completed animal studies clearly showing that “lipoic acid can inhibit formation of arterial lesions, lower triglycerides, and reduce blood vessel inflammation and weight gain – all key issues for addressing cardiovascular disease.”

Carotenes Reduce Cardiovascular Mortality by 20% in Elderly Men

The Journal of Nutrition has published a study of Dutch elderly men that shows alpha carotene and beta carotene intake reduces cardiovascular deaths by 20%. Study participants were 72 years old on average at the start of the study. They were followed for 15 years to determine these results.

Circulating Fat Blobs Predict Cardiovascular Disease

One year ago JAMA published a major breakthrough article explaining that nonfasting levels of triglycerides (fat blobs) was an independent and highly predictive indicator of true cardiovascular disease risk. In the past year these finding have been widely agreed upon...

Sleep Problems Cause Inflammation and Early Death

While everyone knows that a lack of sleep does not feel good, the extent of the damage if sleep problems persist is far greater than previously understood.

New Insights on African-American Cardio Disease

The statistics are painfully clear. African-Americans are 40% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than the white population; including a 250% increased chance for heart failure between ages 45 and 64. Conditions that increase the risk for heart disease such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes are at epidemic levels in young African-Americans and the general trend of these health issues is worsening.

Teenage Stress Primes Inflammatory Pump

A new study shows that teenagers in high stress situations (family, peers, school) can elevate the inflammatory marker CRP (C reactive protein) for several years following the stress. Inflammation deactivates nerve function resulting in poor mood and more risk for depression. And the CRP can lead to cardiovascular distress and set the stage for plaque accumulation especially if the teen is eating poorly and gaining weight during the stressful time.
