Researchers are finding that atrial fibrillation and subsequent strokes related to the arrhythmia are on the rise as the population ages. Between 2003 to 2010 there were 3.2 million hospitalizations due to acute cerebrovascular accidents and 22% were related to atrial fib.  The number of atrial-fibrillation-related strokes rose from 70,953 in 2003 to 100,276 in 2010 up to 25.3 % in women and 19.4% in men. We need more education about stroke prevention.

What's the bottom line on being fat? Can we be healthy and fat? We need fat for brain function, to manufacture our sex hormones and to lose weight. I used to think that some of my overweight patients were healthy. They had great energy and showed no metabolic syndrome disease. We would joke that they were keeping some of their energy in reserves. Now that "fat and healthy" thinking is coming into question.

A coronary artery calcium score study revealed that metabolically healthy obese people have a higher prevalence of coronary calcification compared to metabolically healthy people with normal weight. A large meta-analysis showed an increased risk for death and cardiovascular events in metabolically healthy obese adults compared to normal-weight counterparts.  Is healthy fat a myth?

Researchers looked at data about individuals who were prescribed statin therapy for high cholesterol because once you take a pill the cholesterol will go down and you're good, right?

High triglycerides are a result of a high fat diet. Atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries starts in childhood.
 
It's preventable and we need to prevent cardiovascular disease starting now. It is now recommended that children do lipid screening for nonfasting non-HDL cholesterol levels or a fasting lipid panel between the ages of nine and 11.
