Most important, the investigators found behavioral factors to account for 65% of the relationship between psychologicalCited by:   Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and disparities in cardiovascular health exist among African Americans, American Indians, Hispanics, and Filipinos.

    Heat waves are considered a health risk and they are likely to increase in frequency, intensity and duration as a consequence of climate change. The effects of heat waves on human health could be reduced if individuals recognise the risks and adopt healthy behaviours during a heat wave.

An understanding of social sciences has long been a central part of dental education, and essential for developing a clinician’s appreciation of human behavior as it affects efficient dental treatment.

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other CVDs include stroke, heart failure, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, abnormal heart rhythms, congenital heart disease, Prevention: Healthy eating, exercise, .   Modern human environments are vastly different from those of our forebears. Rapidly advancing technology in transportation, communications, workplaces, and home entertainment confer a wealth of benefits, but increasingly come with costs to human health. Sedentary behavior—too much sitting as distinct from too little physical activity—contributes Cited by:

Abdalla, & Sandro Galea abstract Many behaviors, such as smoking and overeating, strongly affect a population’s health. Further, social, physical, and economic contexts—for example, housing, transportation.

The just-published American Heart Association (AHA) Science Advisory by Spring et al. 1 highlights the rationale for and important role of behavior change in achieving AHA’s goals, “to improve the cardiovascular health of all Americans by 20% while reducing deaths from cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and stroke by 20%.” Key strategies involve progressing from.

A recent AHA Science Advisory reported that adults spend hours per day in sedentary activities and that greater sedentary activity is associated with greater risk of cardiovascular disease.

The contributions of behavioral and social sciences extend. This book provides comprehensive analysis into individualized patient care, and applying evidence‐based medicine while integrating basic medical knowledge with applied medicine.

Hypertension is the most common risk factor for heart failure, accounting for 39% of cases in men and 59% in women, and it contributes to a large proportion of heart failure blood pressure confers a two- to threefold increase in risk for occurrence of heart ension is also associated with development of heart failure in elderly persons and African by: 5.

Cardiovascular risk factors contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease from early life. It is thus crucial to implement preventive strategies addressing the burden of cardiovascular disease as early as possible. A multidisciplinary approach to the risk estimation and prevention of vascular events should be adopted at each level of health care, starting from the setting of Author: Armen Yuri Gasparyan.
