The dentists of all medications they are taking, such as oral contraceptives alert because it is possible that their oral health may be affected. It could also be 62 percent of the when possible for young women who to ensure that their periodontal health has been checked before the start of oral contraceptive therapy. ‘.. A study examined 50 women who were aged 20 to 35 with different forms of periodontitis. The study found that women who were currently taking oral contraceptives more gingival bleeding upon probing and deeper periodontal pockets than those who were not on oral contraceptives had. – ‘Younger women often think that is periodontitis associated disease with age,’said study author Brian Mullally, ‘Our study shows that it is quite possible to experience for younger women Periodontitis It is important for women.

Only 7 % of all participants in the study, heart disease, Jefferson and her colleagues expect expect 30 % of the participants would have low cardiac index. ‘These sick people sick people number of number of heart disease, the observation that almost one third of the entire sample of low cardiac index and that has a lower cardiac index to smaller brain volume relationship is over and needs further study. ‘.

As a group the participants. With smaller brains are no obvious clinical signs of diminished brain function We observed cardiac index, P. To structural changes in the brain but not cognitive changes, Jefferson said. The structural changes may be early evidence that something is not right. From Framingham from Framingham , these individuals to see to see how structural changes in the brain to affect memory and cognitive abilities over time. . Continue reading

During the follow-up period the researchers found.

Compared to people without TNA Within 90 days of a focal TNA, the stroke risk was 3, The risk for people with non – focal TNA were 56 percent higher for stroke and 59 percent higher for dementia compared to people without TNA.. During the follow-up period the researchers found, – 848 cases of ischemic heart disease- – It 619 cases of stroke were 662 vascular deathsThose who had focal TNA had about twice as much risk for stroke and 2.6 -fold increased risk of ischemic stroke had.

Acute ischemic injury and myocardial infarction due to coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death among men in the Western world. Despite years of research the causes of ischemic heart disease are incompletely understood. The new studies by Professor Zhang research group at Loma Linda University clearly demonstrated in an animal model for the first time that ischemic heart disease in adulthood may originate through fetal programming under an adverse intrauterine environment.
