    CHICAGO (AP) — Delilah Edwards’ parents didn’t plan an elaborate Thanksgiving celebration. Just spending the day together is a big deal when your 3-year-old daughter has a new heart. “Before her color was really off. She was very pale…,” Delilah’s mother, Samantha Davidson, told the Chicago Sun-Times. “Now she is very pink. I’ve never seen her cheeks have this much color to them.” Since March, Davidson and her husband Ryan Edwards have traveled every weekend from Moline, Illinois, to see their daughter at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. Last month, Delilah, who was born with an underdeveloped left side of her heart, underwent 12 hours of transplant surgery. Now Delilah’s parents have been staying at the Ronald McDonald House downtown while they accompany their daughter for multiple checkups each week. On Thursday they celebrated the holiday with 70 other families at Ronald McDonald House, which provides free accommodations for families of children undergoing medical treatment. After nine heart surgeries, some of which didn’t work, doctors told Delilah’s parents a new...
    This content is sponsored by MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common type of irregular heartbeat with at least 2.7 million Americans affected, according to the American Heart Association. Two MedStar Health hospitals are offering the first FDA-approved treatment that helps give patients with persistent AFib the best outcomes. AFib is an irregular heartbeat that occurs when a heart has lost its healthy rhythm. The abnormal firing of electrical impulses causes the atria (the top chambers in the heart) to quiver (or fibrillate), the American Heart Association explains. If not properly treated, AFib can lead to blood clots, stroke or other heart-related complications. It can also lead to sudden death. The most common symptom of AFib is a quivering or fluttering heartbeat. Sometimes people with AFib have no symptoms and it’s only detectable during a physical examination. Others people may experience symptoms such as: fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath and anxiety, weakness, sweating or chest pain. Long-standing, persistent atrial fibrillation, also known as LSPAF, is a particularly challenging form of this condition to treat, said...
    Adele: 30 (Columbia)  Rating: Verdict: Queen of sorrow reclaims her throne  She's never been one to hide her innermost feelings from the world – whether it's in the tear-jerking lyrics to her multi-million selling records or her recent confessional TV interview with Oprah Winfrey. Now, as she releases her first album in six years, post-divorce Adele has turned up the emotional dial in her music once more, as Adrian Thrills discovers in his sneak-peek listen to 30...   Adele wastes no time in laying her cards on the table on her eagerly anticipated fourth album. 'I'll be taking flowers to the cemetery of my heart,' she declares in the opening lines of the first track, Strangers By Nature, a romantic tear-jerker adorned by electric piano, subtle electronics and strings. 'Oh, I hope that someday I'll learn to nurture what I've done.' The message is clear: fans should brace themselves for heaped helpings of heartache and guilt, with a side order of redemption and healing. 30 is titled after the age at which Adele, now 33, wrote most of its...
    Sugar is bad news for health — on this most would agree. But when it comes to fat, there has been real and sometimes acrimonious debate. For decades we have been warned that eating too much dairy such as milk, butter and cheese could raise our risk of serious conditions such as heart disease and strokes — only for more recent studies to suggest they might actually protect us from these by lowering our risk of developing high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. So where does the truth lie — and why can’t the scientists agree? The key reason dairy products are considered bad for us is their high saturated fat content. Although our bodies need fats for energy, growth and to absorb fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D and E, eating too much saturated fat, in particular, can raise levels of so-called ‘bad’ cholesterol in our blood.  This can clog arteries, which in turn leads to health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease and strokes. For decades we have been warned that eating too much dairy...

Middleton blames a lot of change in ownership with the mall for the years of planning.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Various versions of medical and recreational marijuana are now legalized in all but seven states. That has led to much more research into the health effects of cannabis. CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez has more on new studies that show surprising heart effects in young users. READ MORE: New Jersey Cannabis Regulatory Commission Releases First Set Of Rules For Legal Marijuana SalesFor decades, it was thought that marijuana use could not lead to a physiologic dependence on cannabis, the active ingredient in the plant. But today’s marijuana isn’t what your parents smoked at Woodstock. It is far more potent. “It felt as if my heart was going to explode out of my chest,” user Mike Stroh said. Stroh said he smoked pot nearly every day for 15 years in Canada, where it has been legal for medicinal purposes for two decades, which explains why there is significant Canadian research into health effects of cannabis. Now, a large peer-reviewed study found that while the risk remained low, those aged 18 to 44, who used cannabis at least four...

    The American Heart Association (AHA) on Tuesday outlined 10 key features of a heart-healthy eating pattern.  The organization's new scientific statement, titled "2021 Dietary Guidance to Improve Cardiovascular Health" and published in the journal Circulation, emphasizes the importance of overall dietary pattern, rather than individual foods or nutrients, as well as underscores the critical role of nutrition. HEART HEALTH KEY TO TYPE 2 DIABETES PREVENTION: RESEARCHERS The features listed, the AHA said, can be adapted to accommodate certain factors including cultural traditions, food likes and dislikes and whether most meals are consumed at home or "on-the-go." According to the group, the statement reflects that a poor diet is strongly associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and death. The importance of a total dietary pattern – rather than "good" or "bad" foods or nutrients – is emphasized, as well as the role of nutrition education.  The AHA emphasizes the importance of a total dietary pattern (iStock) Eating healthy early in life and maintaining healthy habits are also underscored.  "We can all benefit from a heart-healthy dietary pattern regardless...

    Top historian Max Hastings has spent a lifetime studying war.  In his powerful new book, Soldiers: Great Stories Of War And Peace, he has collected first-person accounts that illustrate in searing detail and immediacy all the violence, grief, pathos, black humour and courage of conflict.  In these compelling extracts, a young officer agonises over his decision to leave a dying comrade, a badly wounded Gurkha gets back into battle, and a legendary field marshal is executed by his own side …  The German reached for his gun... so I cut off his head with my kukri The British cherish the army's Gurkha regiments — Nepalese fighters who have 'taken the Queen's shilling' for more than two centuries.

    The lavish parties held by Dr Isaac Herschkopf, one of New York’s most celebrated psychiatrists, had gained something of a reputation among his neighbours in the Hamptons — the elite East Coast community he called home. After chartering buses to transport anything from 70 to 170 guests to his property, Isaac, or ‘Ike’ as he encouraged his friends to call him, would entreat his guests — who included Gwyneth Paltrow — to enjoy his legendary get-togethers. As they quaffed champagne, enjoyed the free poolside massages laid on by their host, or toured the premises (filled with photos of Ike with celebrities from actresses Paltrow and Brooke Shields to disgraced U.S. sports star O.J. Simpson), few took any notice of Marty, the unassuming chap in the background, serving drinks or quietly grilling kosher meat on the barbecue. And why would anyone pay attention to the hired help? Because, in fact, he owned the house — Ike was merely Marty’s therapist. Yet, during three years of treatment, Ike had inveigled his way into his patient’s life to such a degree that he...
    He is seen as a threat to Japan's Chrysanthemum Throne, but Kei Komuro just wants to be a loving husband to his vulnerable bride. The man whose Tuesday marriage to Princess Mako, the older sister of the country's likely future emperor, has led to nationwide protests, admits his new wife's mental health is 'not good,' but he wants to take care of her. 'I love Mako. We only get one life, and I want us to spend it with the one we love,' he told the country during a televised press conference in Tokyo. Now the newlywed couple are heading to freewheeling New York to make a new life half the globe away from the stiff and formal royal palace where Mako grew up.  Princess Mako of Akishino, 30, the eldest daughter of Crown Prince Fumihito and niece of reigning Emperor Naruhito, tied the knot with university sweetheart Kei Komuro, a commoner, in Tokyo on Tuesday after an eight-year engagement. They have been engaged since 2013 and were due to marry three years ago, but the wedding was delayed following...
    The Buckeye State became the cockeyed state after botching the design of the iconic Wright Brothers plane while rolling out its new license plates.   Ohio Governor Mike DeWine was left red-faced as the birthplace of aviation unveiled the new Sunshine In Ohio license plate on October 21, the fourth new plate in the last 20 years.  DeWine wanted the plate to reflect the 'heart and soul' of the Buckeye State as well as the 'beauty' of the seal Ohio, all the diverse cities and the aviation heritage. However, the plate created by the DMV flipped the orientation on the famed 1903 Wright Flyer, an easy mistake to make by agency's beauracrats.  The botched license plate design swapped the location of the elevators, putting them on the tail end of the plane, located on the right side by the shape of Ohio, instead of in the front. And it's a push prop design — the propeller is supposed to be behind Orville Wright's feet as he faces the elevators.  The corrected plate shows the elevators in front, as the a prone...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — More Americans are living with a broken heart, according to a new study from the Journal of the American Heart Association.

    A LONG Covid sufferer was advised that eating Hula Hoops could ease her debilitating heart condition as docs warn of a tide of new cases. Salted peanuts were also recommended to the Anglesey woman to boost her blood pressure as she suffered from a "racing heart". 2Hoopla over Hula Hoops - which were recommended to a Long Covid suffererCredit: Alamy Sian Griffiths, 43, who was infected with coronavirus in May 2020, said that since tucking into Hula hoops and salted nuts, her condition is "improving, my heart doesn't race now". And she has been eating them every day. The salty snacks have been touted by the Long Covid sufferer, who is adamant that her symptoms, including breathlessness, dizzy spells and terrifying heart palpitations, have eased as a result. Previously fit and healthy, the physiotherapist suffered long-term, post-viral effects, and was eventually diagnosed with postural tachycardia syndrome, or PoTS.

    Heart damage and blood clots a year after survivors shake off COVID-19 have shown that the effects of the virus extends well beyond the initial infection, a new study says. According to the study, even people who never showed enough symptoms to be hospitalized with the virus are in danger of developing heart failure or potentially deadly blood clothes a year later. Researchers at the Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care System in Missouri reported that COVID-19 survivors who weren’t hospitalized had a 39 percent increased risk of developing heart failure in the first year compared to someone who never had the virus. They also had a 119 percent increased risk of developing a potentially fatal blood clot and a 24 percent increased risk of having a stroke. For those who were hospitalized with COVID-19, the numbers increased even further, with a 482 percent chance of cardiac arrest, 270 percent chance for heart failure and an 855 percent chance of blood clots. The study states that one in seven patients who were admitted to an ICU with COVID-19 were...

    Check out our must-buy plant-based cookbooks! Learn more New research shows that drinking plenty of water can be the secret key to having a healthy heart. The study was conducted with a number of adults between the ages of 44 and 66. It continued for 25 years to catalog the long-term effects of water intake on heart health. The research suggested that middle-aged adults can greatly lower their risk of heart failure by drinking plenty of water. Furthermore, not getting enough water on a daily basis caused elevated blood pressure and undermined the cellular integrity of the heart muscle. Study author Natalia Dmitrieva, a senior researcher with the U.S. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, said, “The importance of hydration has been on the cardiovascular radar for a long time.” Water can help to prevent heart failure because it has an effect on the body’s balance of sodium, hormone levels, and kidney function – all things that can impact heart health long-term. This research helped to indicate how much middle-aged adults should drink to maintain better...
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The nation’s highest court has allowed a Texas law banning most abortions to remain in effect, marking a turning point for abortion opponents who have been fighting to implement stronger restrictions for nearly a decade. The Texas law, pegged a “fetal heartbeat bill,” bans abortions at the point of the “first detectable heartbeat,” which could happen around six weeks into pregnancy, although that timeframe isn’t specified in the measure. Medical experts say the heart doesn’t begin to form until the fetus it is at least nine weeks old, and they decry efforts to promote abortion bans by relying on medical inaccuracies. Nonetheless, at least 13 other states with Republican-dominated legislatures have adopted similar bans, although courts have blocked them all from being implemented. Democrats call the new Texas law an unconstitutional assault on women’s health. The growing anti-abortion campaign is intended to reach the U.S. Supreme Court. Abortion opponents hope the conservative coalition assembled under President Donald Trump will end the constitutional right to abortion as established by the high court in the landmark...
    New York (CNN Business)A group of researchers has developed a new material they say is as soft as cotton but as strong as Kevlar and as conductive as many metals. It can be worn and washed like normal clothing and could eventually turn athletic apparel into smart "wearables."The so-called "carbon nanotube threads" work similarly to the wires in an electrocardiogram (EKG) monitoring device, which measures heart rhythms to detect heart conditions. But instead of having to be patched onto the skin, they can be sewn into a t-shirt and worn like normal athletic wear, according to a new study from researches at a Rice University Brown School of Engineering lab. And unlike wires, they say the threads can comfortably move with the wearer, and be washed, stretched and worn repeatedly without breaking down.Though likely a ways off from going into production for consumers, the material could eventually help replace bulky EKG Holter monitors in medical settings and heart-rate monitoring watches and chest straps for athletes, in addition to other potential uses. "Another interesting application of this technology is that we...

    A large majority of COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized during last winter's surge still have not fully recovered, a new study finds. Researchers from the University of Michigan analyzed 253 patients who were hospitalized towards the end of fall 2020 and winter 2021. Nearly 85 percent of the patients reported that they had still not made a full recovery at least six months later.

Two separate studies showed that young adults and postmenopausal women showed a significant decrease in heart disease and heart attacks while they were consuming a healthy diet of plant foods. The studies showed that the women who ate the most nutritionally dense diet of plant-based foods were 52% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease, as well as health conditions and diseases linked to it. Yuni Choi, Ph.D., lead author of the young adult study and a postdoctoral researcher in the division of epidemiology and community health at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health in Minneapolis, said, “A nutritionally rich, plant-centered diet is beneficial for cardiovascular health. A plant-centered diet is not necessarily vegetarian. People can choose among plant foods that are as close to natural as possible, not highly processed. We think that individuals can include...

    Veterinary nurse Sarah Woodward was at work when she received a phone call to say her best friend’s father had died.  ‘I’d known him for 45 years,’ says Sarah, from Worthing, West Sussex. ‘It was like losing my own father.’ Before she’d even put the phone down, a stabbing pain started in her chest. It then radiated through her back, into her jaw and down her left arm.  She started to struggle to breathe and turned the colour of chalk — all classic signs of a heart attack. Sarah, 54, was, however, exceptionally fit, doing at least ten hours of exercise a week, including kickboxing. She didn’t smoke, cooked from scratch every day with husband Kevin, 58, a gas engineer, and drank alcohol only once a week. So it never crossed her mind that she was having a heart attack. Instead, she thought it was just a panic attack or that she’d pulled a muscle while exercising. A colleague, however, called an ambulance and, a few hours later, tests revealed it was something else entirely. Sarah had broken...

    Last December, the Mail published a landmark four-part investigation into Victoria Roberts Giuffre’s allegations against Prince Andrew. During months of painstaking work we obtained testimony from new witnesses, gained access to sensitive documents and the contents of diaries and interviewed high-level sources. Our inquiries took us from London to New York, Boston, Florida, the US Virgin Islands, South Africa and Australia and resulted in stunning revelations – a number of which undermined Miss Roberts’ allegations while others cast doubts on some of the Duke’s claims of innocence.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new mask guidance suggesting that vaccinated people once again put on face masks in certain indoor settings has left small businesses concerned about the potential economic ramifications. The CDC updated its mask guidance in late July recommending that people regardless of vaccination status wear masks “in areas with substantial and high transmission” and all students in K-12 schools wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The guidance is largely a response to the highly contagious delta variant, which accounted for 83% of new infections last month. Washington, D.C., issued a mask mandate in late July requiring all individuals over the age of two to wear a mask in indoor settings regardless of vaccination status. Other local and county governments have reintroduced similar mandates or guidelines in recent weeks, according to Newsweek. In cities where mask mandates are being enforced, some small business owners said they’ve been forced back into a challenging position after an already tough year. A sign requiring mask use is seen outside of a store in Union Station on...
