Risk of Coronary Disease Increases Every Year Someone is Obese

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 17, 2013

Have you been considering losing weight but decided to put it off to focus on other things? A new study shows that decision could be hazardous to your health. The study was led by Epidemiologist Jared Reis of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and it is summarized in a USA Today article published on July 16, 2013. The article was authored by Nancy Hellmich, and it is entitled “Longer time being obese leads to coronary disease.” According to the article, young adults increase their risk of developing plaque that hardens in their arteries for each year that they are afflicted by obesity, and this plaque can trigger serious complications much later in life that can include stroke and heart attack.

According to the article, young people suffering from obesity increase their risk of developing plaque-hardened arteries by between 2 and 4 percent for every year that they suffer from obesity. The article says that the study was conducted by collecting data on about 3300 subjects over a period of about 25 years which happens to coincide with the rise of obesity rates in the United States. It also says that part of the reason why obese people are more likely to develop hardened plaque is that fat triggers inflammation, which allows substances such as cholesterol, blood-clotting substances, and calcium to build up and form plaques in the arteries. The article quotes Dr. Mariell Jessup, a cardiologist who is president of the American Heart Association as saying that “If there is inflammation in the lining of the coronary arteries, the body attempts to heal that area and may subsequently develop plaque as a way of healing. It’s not healthy healing, but that’s how it heals.” The article also says that atherosclerosis is the medical term used to describe the process by which plaque forms and hardens arteries.

A new study conducted by Dr. Amit Khera of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center outlined the risks of atherosclerosis. The study is described in an article on Science Codex that was published on June 18, 2013 entitled “Atherosclerosis in abdominal aorta may predict adverse cardiovascular events, UTSW scientists report.” The article says that the presence of atherosclerosis in the aorta can predict serious events such as heart attack and stroke even in patients who are healthy in all other respects. This research outlines the potential long term complications that atherosclerosis can have on patients. realizes that there are many individuals who recognize the long term health problems that obesity can have on them even when they suffer from it at a young age. It is offering a summer sale of PhenObestin, a dietary supplement intended to help individuals suffering from obesity to both boost their energy and reduce their hunger. It is built around the active ingredient Phenylethylamine HCL, and is an alternative to Phentermine that is available without a prescription.
