Life Line Screening Roundup Blog Post – April 20, 2012

Friday Roundup:

 

RIP Mr. Dick Clark, America’s Oldest Living Teenager

Life Line Screening is sad to report what most of you have already heard this week in the news – the passing of a true entertainment legend America has loved and adored for six decades in popular culture – Mr. Dick Clark. From American Bandstand to New Year’s Rockin’ Eve to The $25,000 Pyramid game show, Clark was a host, MC, producer, talent scout and entertainment advocate in the music industry par excellence. Suffering a “mild” stroke in 2004 that caused him to miss the 2005 New Year’s Eve event, he returned the next year to host but admitted that the stroke had left him “in bad shape.” The heart attack that claimed his life this week was his first. Goodbye Mr. Clark from your many fans across America and the world!

Positive Thinking Plays a Role in a Healthy Heart

Though it’s long been noticed that grumpy, stressed and type-A personalities tend to have higher risks of heart attacks, the reverse appears to be true as well – individuals who are upbeat, enthusiastic and optimistic appear to have fewer heart attacks. While the science behind “psychosomatic” influence on the body is still not well-understood, it’s becoming more and more apparent that your mental outlook helps to shape much about your life experiences – from the friends you make and keep to the way you treat yourself and what you allow to influence your body. Indeed, we are what we think.

Low-Fat Dairy Products May Help Lower Risk of Stroke

The old saying, “you are what you eat,” seems to prove itself true time and time again. A new Swedish study in the journal Stroke claims that middle-aged and older adults may be able to lower their risk of stroke by switching to low-fat dairy products. The researchers of the study, who tracked the diets of nearly 75,000 men and women over a 10-year period, found that those who consumed the most low-fat dairy foods and beverages were found to be 12% less likely to have a stroke than those who ate the least. Proof positive that diet consideration is a good strategy in managing your ongoing health for both men and women.
