Minnesota has the lowest age-adjusted heart disease mortality in the U.S.; yet, African American adults 35 to 63 have nearly double the rate of death from cardiovascular disease, compared to their white counterparts.

First-responder cells launching the repair after a heart attack are so frantic about fixing the damage that they promote more inflammation than necessary, new research in mice suggests.

AI could lead to better ways to predict the onset and course of cardiovascular diseaseFor the first time, University of Utah Health scientists have shown that artificial intelligence could lead to better ways to predict the onset and course of cardiovascular disease.
 
 
 Risk factors affect cardiovascular disease risk even in patients with no coronary artery calcium
 
Risk factors affect cardiovascular disease risk even in patients with no coronary artery calciumAmong patients with no detectable coronary artery calcium, those who smoke, have diabetes or hypertension nonetheless have the highest risk of cardiovascular disease events, according to a study published in the journal Circulation.
 
 
 Switching to smokeless tobacco associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk in smokers
 
Switching to smokeless tobacco associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk in smokersRegular smokers are at heightened risk of developing cardiovascular disease, but crushing the butts in favor of a "smokeless" alternative like chewing tobacco, snuff or tobacco lozenges may go a long way toward bringing the danger down to a more normal level, a new UCLA-led study shows.
 
 
 Breastfeeding linked to reduced cardiovascular disease risk in mothers
 
Breastfeeding linked to reduced cardiovascular disease risk in mothersWomen who breastfed were less likely to develop heart disease or a stroke, or die from cardiovascular disease than women who did not breastfeed, according to a meta-analysis published today in a pregnancy spotlight issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA), an open access, peer-reviewed journal of the American Heart Association.
