Effect of cellphone Radiation on Heart Health

MP technology still relies on pulsed high-frequency electromagnetic (EM) fields. Therefore, the health risks, associated with EM fields, remain. Studies that investigated these health risks have reported dizziness, numbness in the thigh, and heaviness in the chest. This study investigates neurological effects that are caused by EM fields radiated from MPs. The heart rate variability (HRV) can be used as a measure for these neurological effects because the automated nervous system modulates the HRV.

A study revealed that cellphones cause heart disease and kidney failure. 

According to, European Research Institute for Electronic Components in Bucharest found that cell phones may lead to heart disease, kidney stones, etc., 

The study found that cell phones emit radiation which causes red blood cells to leak out hemoglobin, this hemoglobin accumulates in the body which becomes the cause for heart disease or kidney stones. Another group of researchers at Lund University found that exposure to cell phone radiation could cause proteins and toxic substances to leak into the brain, which leads to stroke, Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.

Consumption of dairy products may prevent cerebrovascular diseases

Owing to its relatively high levels of saturated fat, consumption of dairy products has long been thought to increase the risk of death, particularly from coronary heart disease (CHD), cerebrovascular disease and cancer. Consuming dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt may be beneficial as they protect against mortality from cerebrovascular causes, suggests a study, emphasizing the need to reconsider previous guidelines that advise a limit on dairy products' intake. Yet the evidence for any such link is inconsistent. The study showed that the consumption of all dairy products was associated with a 4% lower risk for cerebrovascular mortality.

Consumption of milk: 7% lower the risk.

Consumption of cheese: 8% lower the risk than the total mortality.

Consumption of Yogurt: 3% lower the risk.

Thus, the current guidelines limiting the consumption of dairy products, especially cheese and yogurt, should be relaxed, instead drinking of non-fat or low-fat milk should be recommended, especially for those who consume large quantities of milk.

Broken Heart Syndrome

Broken heart syndrome is a temporary heart condition that's often brought on by stressful situations, such as the death of a loved one. The condition can also be triggered by a serious physical illness or surgery. People with broken heart syndrome may have sudden chest pain or think they're having a heart attack.
In broken heart syndrome, there's a temporary disruption of your heart's normal pumping function in one area of the heart. The remainder of the heart functions normally or with even more forceful contractions. Broken heart syndrome may be caused by the heart's reaction to a surge of stress hormones.

The condition may also be called takotsubo cardiomyopathy, apical ballooning syndrome or stress cardiomyopathy by doctors. The symptoms of broken heart syndrome are treatable, and the condition usually reverses itself in days or weeks.


Broken heart syndrome symptoms can mimic a heart attack. Common symptoms include:
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
Any long-lasting or persistent chest pain could be a sign of a heart attack.

8 warning signs of Hypertension

1. Headaches – Fluctuation in high blood pressure can cause headaches

2. Dizziness – The lowering or heightening of blood pressure causes the heart to work harder, causing people to feel dizzy or light-headed

3. Blurred vision – The optical nerve, located behind the eye, can be affected by hypertension

4. Nausea and vomiting – It is not uncommon for the digestive system to be disturbed due to high blood pressure

5. Chest pain – The heart will pump faster and harder than usual

6. Shortness of breath – Disturbances in circulation can cause shortness of breath

7. Nosebleeds – Small blood vessels can swell up in the nose and burst

8. Flushing of the face, sweat, and nerves – High blood pressure can cause panic attacks

Benefits of Beetroot juice in controlling Hypertension

Patients could also lower their risk of hypertension symptoms by drinking beetroot juice, according to a British Heart Foundation study.

The nitrates in beetroot may be the key to reducing blood pressure, scientists claimed.

Roasting or juicing beetroot could also harbor anti-hypertensive benefits, as the root vegetable is water soluble, and boiling them will lower the number of benefits.

Eating a diet rich in nitrates, from natural sources like beets and leafy green vegetables, is good advice.

Experts say it’s the high concentration of nitrates in beets that are responsible for the benefits.

In a lengthy biological process, nitrates from dietary sources like beets and leafy green vegetables are converted to nitric oxide within the body. The nitric oxide then relaxes blood vessels and dilates them, which helps the blood flow more easily and lowers blood pressure.

Heart health and Dementia

A recent study suggested that having a healthy heart lowers the risk of Dementia. Taking action to lower the risk of heart attacks also lowers the risk of developing Dementia. The study suggests that when it comes to achieving a “lifetime of robust brain health free of dementia, it is never too early or too late to strive for attainment of ideal cardiovascular health. 

Although dementia is a major public health concern, its incidence rate has actually been declining in both the United States and other developed countries in recent decades.

Many factors have been cited as possible reasons for the decline, including better education, increased wealth and greater use of anti-inflammatory drugs. But also on that list is improved control of risk factors for cardiovascular diseases (ones involving the heart and blood vessels).

“The recent decline in dementia incidence was preceded by a halving of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease incidence over the past 60 years,”

The seven evidence-based metrics are the following:
  • not smoking
  • having a body mass index (BMI) under 25
  • getting regular exercise
  • having blood pressure under 120/80 mm Hg
  • keeping total cholesterol under 200 mg/dL
  • keeping blood glucose (sugar) under 100 mg/dL
  • eating fish twice a week and fruits and vegetables at least three times a day.
