The world's leading cardiologists have been told that the advice they've been handing out for 30 years about heart health is wrong: far from causing heart disease, saturated fats from cheese and red meat protect us from ever getting the condition and could cut the risk of an early death by 25 per cent.
Cleaning up the air we breathe—and especially in polluted regions of India and China—would have a bigger impact on improving health and longevity than finding a cure for breast and lung cancer, a new research study claims.
Smokers who are trying to cut back by vaping every day are running a very high risk of a heart attack. The practice—which is common among smokers—increases the chances of an attack five-fold. Even vaping on its own nearly doubles the risks of an attack, a major new study has discovered.
