A study of over 12,000 men with hypertension showed no increased health risks for moderate alcohol consumption and may help reduce risk of heart attacks and strokes. The study was first published in the January 2nd issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine.

The researchers studied data from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study. Based on this information the researchers found that men with high blood pressure were able to have one or two drinks each day without increasing their risk for having a heart attack or stroke.

Previous research has suggested that drinking alcohol in moderation of lower risk for heart disease. Alcohol consumption can also increase blood pressure. The researchers want to find out if men with high blood pressure would also increase their blood pressure when drinking alcohol. Moderate drinking is considered one or two alcoholic beverage servings.

Scientists say that a “longevity gene” that helps people live into their 90’s and beyond may also protect against Alzheimer’s disease and a loss of cognitive function as they age. The New York researchers say that the gene helps people learn, think and remember new information.

The gene variant alters the cholesterol particles in the blood making them larger. It is believed that the larger cholesterol particles don’t lodge themselves into the blood vessel linings as easily as the smaller ones. This fatty buildup can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is recommending stronger warning labels on common over the counter pain relievers including aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Most people view drugs like acetaminophen as being completely safe, but misuse of the drug has become the number-one cause of liver failure in the US.

These common painkillers are safe if used as directed. The problem is, not everyone uses the drugs as directed, and some of the drugs, including acetaminophen, aspirin, ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are incorporated in other medications including cold medicines. Every year there are roughly 7,600 deaths and 76,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. due to these pain relievers.

"Research on obesity and associated problems such as hypertension and type-2 diabetes has largely dealt with adults," says Alison Ventura, doctoral candidate at Penn State's Center for Childhood Obesity Research. "But with increasing rates of obesity in children, we are seeing these problems at much younger ages."

Obesity has been on the rise considerably in the United Kingdom (UK) since the 1980’s. A study reports on the current trends and suggests preventive measures that the UK could take to slow down the obesity epidemic. The study was first reported in the British Medical Journal in Volume 333 pp 1261-4.

Naveed Sattar, a professor of metabolic medicine along with his colleagues report that by 2010, approximately one third of all adults in the UK will be considered obese. Obesity is calculated by Body Mass Index rating (BMI). If a person has a BMI rating of over 30 they are considered obese. They warn that over half of the UK population will have a BMI rating of over 25 and will increase their chance of dying younger due to weight related health conditions.
