    Heart Disease in the Young: Start Early on Health

    Heart Disease in the Young: Start Early on Health

    The most common form of heart disease is atherosclerosis. This is a slow clogging and aging of arteries throughout the body that can start even in childhood. The earlier a healthy lifestyle program is started, the more effective it will be.
     
    This week, Dr. Kahn reviews 3 new studies on aspects of heart health in those under 50 years of age. Even as young as 18. The message is clear: start young and stay on track.
     
    Another topic addressed is the release of the CORDIOPREV nutrition study in Spain regarding whether heart patients respond better to high olive oil vs lower-fat diets. The results are stunning.

    Word Salad: Carotenoids and Polyphenols

    Word Salad: Carotenoids and Polyphenols

    If you want a mouthful of nutrition, eat a salad and learn about carotenoids and polyphenols. The terms are technical but they help understand why brightly colored plant-based foods, some whole and some raw, are the key to optimal nutrition.
     
    Dr. Kahn discusses the carotenoids in Memory Health, and also another one with heart support called astaxanthin. He then moves to the classes of polyphenols found in chocolate, teas, apples, and onions like quercetin. You will be smarter and healthier for the listen.

    Love Chocolate, Not Dirty Air

    Love Chocolate, Not Dirty Air

    This week, Dr. Kahn of the Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity discusses a massive study on using chemicals (flavanols) found in cocoa as a heart preventive therapy. The results were just published, and the findings are discussed. Since most everyone loves chocolate, this is an important topic.
     
    He then turns to new data on the tight link between air pollution as an immediate trigger of heart attacks. What to do? Consider a home air filter of high quality. You can search for some of Dr. Kahn's favorites here:  (kahnlongevitycenter.gethealthy.store/)

    Peyronie’s Disease: The Curveball That Strikes Men

    Peyronie's Disease (PD) is an unusual and common acquired disorder in men where the penis develops a curvature from scar tissue. If the curve is great enough, pain and sexual issues will develop. Patients come to the Kahn Center for consultation on erectile dysfunction and PD is evaluated. Low-intensity shockwave therapy (LIST) is available for use at home for PD supported by scientific studies. Often urology consultations are also obtained.

I gave you a 5 star and referred a lady from Columbus, Ohio. However, please don’t promote fish oil anymore … walnuts, avocados, chia seeds, flax seeds, black seeds, etc… it’s not only unhealthy to promote fish oil … it is very confusing for people who are going vegan! Thanks!!
