Influenza Shot May Protect Against Heart Disease

Flu Shots Against Heart Attack

University of Toronto scientists found that people who got a flu shot are 37 % less likely to get angina or a heart attack compared to individuals who didn't get vaccinated. Researchers also said that 10.3 % of the study group who have been vaccinated had a cardiovascular disease compared with 23.1 % of those who did not get a shot.

This treatment could address a substantial part of residual cardiovascular hazard not addressed by present treatment and supply yearlong coverage with one simple inoculation.

The influenza activates irregular heart rhythms and also can worsen cardiovascular disease, so getting a flu shot is very important for those at risk for heart troubles.

Slow Start

President Barack Obama admitted there were aggravating tech glitches when folks try to subscribe to health insurance through HealthCare.gov, but he encouraged individuals to register on the telephone or in person.

At a press conference yesterday, he said, "The web site continues to be too slow, folks are getting stuck during the program procedure. And I think that it is reasonable to say that nobody is more disappointed than I'm -- just because the product is great, I need the cash registers to work."

Just 14 states selected to create their own on-line markets, which are apparently running better in relation to the national exchange.

The problems were recognized by the Health Services Department, and USA Today reported it the section is bringing in Verizon workers to help the site match with the requirement of individuals attempting to join insurance.

Those who slept around 5 hours a night were found by the researchers and those who have poor quality had plaque buildup compared to those who slept better and longer.
