Astronauts who spent a long-time in space may experience a decrease in their cardiovascular function resulting to a lower exercise capacity.
One in three adults living in the United States experienced at least one sign consistent with the symptoms of warning stroke or "mini" stroke.
Many people were surprised to find out that scientists are sending stem cells into space. It is known to many that the weightlessness of space can do pretty incredible things to the body. However, scientists are trying to figure out what kinds of things near-weightless conditions can do to developing cells. Scientists have cent stem cells in a dish to the ISS so that astronauts can observe and record their findings, perhaps to help the future of mankind.
In an effort to find a scientific explanation why and how breakfast cereals, such as oats, can lower cholesterol in the bloodstream, thus decreasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, researchers at the University of Queensland's Centre for Nutrition and Food Sciences have identified a novel mechanism: beta glucans.
Dr. Denton Cooley died in his Houston home on Friday morning, surrounded by his four daughters, a spokeswoman for Texas Children's Hospital said.
A new study revealed that people who are smoking marijuana are more likely to experience an uncommon heart muscle malfunction that can mimic the symptoms of a heart attack.
Calcium supplements increase the risk of coronary artery calcification
Scientists have engineered synthetic blood vessels in hopes of treating children born with serious heart defects. The artificial blood vessels, which could grow with age, could eventually eliminate the need for multiple surgeries in children.
A new study revealed that patients who survived their first heart attack are more likely to develop heart failure later in their lives.
Scientists from Johns Hopkins University develop a new non-invasive 3-D virtual heart assessment tool that can better predict risk of life-threatening arrhythmia in patients who survived heart attacks.
It might just take a few months to recover from a broken heart caused by failed relationships and break ups, but a literal broken heart caused by a sudden death of your better half might take some time to heal.
Sugary drinks increase the risk of getting heart disease, even when consumed for just two weeks by young, healthy men and women.
They may be tiny, but fruit flies actually sleep for up to half their short adult lives. Now, researchers are finding that access to the occasional midnight snack may actually disrupt this important rest cycle, potentially harming their tiny little hearts.
We've all heard the old adage "you are what you eat," but now a new study shows that when you eat might be just as important.
