(Best Syndication News) - The California Department of Public Health has released their County Health Status Profiles 2012 report that assesses the health status of each county throughout the state. The current data analyzed was between 2008 – 2010 and was compared against the Healthy People 2010 National Objectives to determine if the state has met each goal.

The CDPH report saw improvements from the previous report that involved the years of 2005 through 2007. The new report saw around a 14 percent decline in the birthrates of adolescent mothers for the 2008 through 2010 data. There was a 29.4 percent reduction in motor vehicle traffic crash death rates, which was the best improvement overall in the 2012 report. The rates of Gonorrhea infections declined by 25.6 percent. AIDS infections declined by 24.4 percent. Diabetes death rates also showed a decline by 11.1 percent. All cancers including lung, breast, and prostate declined since the 2005 – 2007 report. There also was a reduction in coronary heart disease, and cerebrovascular disease. However, death rates for Alzheimer’s disease and suicide rates increased.

(Best Syndication News) - Previous research has shown an association with oral health and heart health. A recent study now suggests that oral bacteria could enter into the bloodstream posing a risk for blood clots that could lead to endocarditis and blood vessel blockage.

The research came from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) along with the University of Bristol. Dr. Helen Petersen will be presenting the findings at the Society for General Microbiology’s Spring Conference in Dublin this coming week.

Blood Pressure differences in Left and Right Arm Associated with an Increased Death Risk

(Best Syndication News) - A research study found that for every one-mmHG difference in blood pressure measurement in the left and right arms, there is an increased risk for death by 9 percent in the next ten years. The study was relatively small, but the researchers suggest that any person with hypertension should have both arms measured for a better assessment and management of their condition.

Researchers from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry investigated 230 patients between 1999 and 2002. All of the patients had hypertension. The same researchers conducted a similar study and found an increased risk for death in five years time. This prompted them to investigate if there was an increased 10-year risk for death.

(Best Syndication News) - Mothers who had given birth to small for gestational age infants, had almost twice as high chance of developing ischemic heart disease. This was according to a recent study published in the March 14, journal PLoS ONE.

Radek Bukowski led the research from the University of Texas Medical Branch. The study involved looking at 6,608 records of mothers in the US. Out of these, 399 had delivered small babies for the gestational age, and 453 mothers developed ischemic heart disease (IHD). The data suggested that the mothers with the smaller sized babies were at an almost twice as high risk for developing heart disease.
