A Multivitamin’s Effect on Heart Disease in Men

Think that multivitamin you’re taking every day is lowering your risk of heart problems down the road? Sadly, it might not be.

A new study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, reports that taking a daily multivitamin does not reduce a man’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The multivitamin’s present no benefit or risk when it comes to the heart.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that about 50 percent of American adults take a dietary supplement such as multivitamins daily. However, other preventive measures, such as health screenings, are known to benefit an individual in terms of identifying cardiovascular disease risk. Learn more about these health screenings  now.

What Your Feet Can Tell You About Your Health

Did you know that checking your feet for certain characteristics can tell you about the state of your health?

“You can detect everything from diabetes to nutritional deficiencies just by examining the feet,” Jane Andersen, DPM and President of the American Association of Women Podiatrists said in a Yahoo! Health article.

How can this be? Feet contain a quarter of the body’s bones as well as 33 joints, 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments and numerous nerves and blood vessels that go all the way to the most important areas of the body: the heart, spine and brain.

Health screenings can also make you aware of the state of your health. Learn more about how a preventive health screening from Life Line Screening can benefit you today.
