Dietary and serum vitamins and minerals as predictors of myocardial infarction and stroke in elderly


Dietary and serum vitamins and minerals as predictors of myocardial infarction and stroke in elderly

Subjects aged 65-99 years were followed for up to 10 years to assess dietary and serum vitamins and minerals for prediction of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and stroke.  Low intakes of vitamin D, flavonoids and low serum iron* were predictors of AMI.  Comment: *serum iron is lowered in patients with anemia of chronic disease (ACD), which is not a condition of iron deficiency, but of iron withholding.

I celebrated Red Dress Day by orianizgng and orchestrating a worksite health fair which included biometric screenings, three 1-hour seminars covering eating heart healthy, exercising heart healthy, and women over 40 health issues. We also featured a massage therapist for chair massages, yoga demonstrations, raffle for a women's finance book Women & Money by Suze Orman, and heart healthy food samples such a delicious Cuban black beans & rice from Del Carmen Foods, a Savannah salad from McAlister's Deli, Dove dark chocolates, and Welch's sparkiling red grape juice.Both my parents have had heart attacks, so I have been on a quest to eating healthier (more plant foods and greens such as kale, spinach, swiss chard), more exercise, and stress relief with swimming, yoga and therapy by working in my greenhouse.
