Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Dietary factors contribute to CVD death

So fucking what? You tell us nothing new and don't point to a diet protocol that will prevent this problem. Just generic diet recommendation crap.

Poor diet, known to be associated with risk for CVD, was associated with more than 400,000 deaths in 2015, according to results presented at the American Heart Association’s Epidemiology and Prevention/Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Health Scientific Sessions.
“Our findings provide a comprehensive picture of how suboptimal diet influences [CVD] mortality in the United States and identify priorities for dietary intervention,” Ashkan Afshin, MD, MPH, MSc, ScD, acting assistant professor of global health at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington, Seattle, told Cardiology Today.
Afshin and Patrick J. Sur, an MPH candidate at the University of Washington, examined data related to CVD-related deaths in 2015 and quantified the relationship between CVD death and suboptimal intake of 11 dietary factors: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, sugar-sweetened beverages, processed meat, seafood omega-3 fatty acids, trans fatty acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, fiber and sodium. Additional information regarding each dietary factor’s intake was gathered from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

Suboptimal diet among men accounted for 222,100 (95% uncertainty interval [UI], 189,500-252,800) CVD deaths in 2015 vs. 193,400 deaths among women (95% UI, 161,100-226,100), according to the researchers.
The most common dietary risk factors linked to CVD-related death were low consumption of vegetables (99,530 CVD deaths [11.5%]; 95% UI, 45,370-161,100), low intake of nuts (100,460 CVD deaths [11.6%]; 95% UI, 59,690-148,480), excess sodium (77,260 CVD deaths [9%]; 95% UI, 22,760-169,690) and low consumption of whole grains (89,670 CVD deaths [10.4%]; 95% UI, 52,300-132,980).
“Other top dietary risks for [CVD] death include low intake of fruit, low intake of seafood omega-3 fatty acids and high intake of trans fats,” Afshin said.
“By understanding which specific dietary habits increase risk of [CVD] death the most, cardiologists and other clinicians can better help their patients develop tailored eating plans for themselves and their families,” he told Cardiology Today. – by Darlene Dobkowski
