Research has found that heart attacks peak during the winter months, and the prevailing hypothesis has been that cold temperatures stress the heart. But in 2004, researchers analyzed 12 years of Los Angeles County death certificates and found that heart attack deaths also rise in the balmy Los Angeles winters. What's more, cardiac deaths peak on Christmas and New Year's Day in L.A. County. Could it be that the weather is not the most important factor behind the seasonal increase in heart attacks? Cardiologist Robert Kloner discusses his research in Episode 28 of the podcast, Life Lines. You can find that episode here. Dr. Kloner and his colleagues found that cardiac deaths in Los Angeles County rose 33% during the months of November through January and peaked on Christmas and New Year's Day.
If you're using a treadmill exercise program as part of your overall fitness routine, it's important to make your workouts as effective as possible. You should be aware of a concept known as rate of perceived exertion (RPE) and how it relates to your optimal performance. Here's a quick overview about rate of perceived exertion and how it relates to treadmill workout programs. What Is Rate Of Perceived Exertion? Rate of perceived exertion (RPE) is normally used in group fitness sessions like indoor cycling and treadmill classes. Rather than telling all participants to run at a certain speed, for example, a self check mechanism of sorts is used to educate participants about effort level.
A new report from a British heart charity claims that 90 per cent of parents are being deceived by manufacturers who use misleading tactics to market children's foods in a way that implies they are healthy when they are really loaded with fat, salt and sugar. These are the findings of a new survey from the British Heart Foundation (BHF) released this week. The BHF survey revisits its report from December 2008, titled How parents are being misled, when it first reviewed what mums and dads thought about various health claims made by manufacturers of children's food sold in the UK. The latest survey asks parents what they thought about claims like "free from artificial colours and preservatives" and "a source of calcium, iron and six vitamins" and shows how the majority of parents in the UK believe such claims indicate that a product is likely to be healthy.
Are you using a treadmill as part of your overall fitness regimen? If so, you likely understand the importance of changing your treadmill workouts around from time to time.
