A Happy Childhood Leads to Adult Heart Health

A Happy Childhood Leads to Adult Heart Health

A happy childhood leads to adult heart health says a new study that was conducted in Finland over the last few decades. A recent article in Medical News Today explored the findings which showed children that grew up with positive psychosocial factors, such as a family that practiced health habits, is financially stable, and provides an emotionally stable environment had better cardiovascular health as adults.

The results showed that children that grew up in households with the most positive psychosocial factors had a:

  • 14 percent greater chance of being at normal weight as an adult;
  • 12 percent greater chance of being a non-smoker as an adult; and
  • 11 percent greater chance to have a healthy glucose level as an adult.

The results of this study highlight the fact that the path to heart health starts early and that the benefits are long lasting. The choices that parents make early can have an impact on their children’s health for years to come.

Was Beethoven’s Music Affected by Cardiac Arrhythmia?

Was Beethoven's music affected by cardiac arrhythmia?

A recent article in the Los Angeles Times looked at a study of Ludwig van Beethoven’s music. The study suggests some of his later works could have been influenced by cardiac arrhythmia. Arrhythmia is an abnormal rhythm of the heart, also known as an irregular heartbeat.

A cardiologist, an internal medicine specialist, and a musicologist examined Beethoven’s music to look at the “rhythmic turnabouts”. Their theory is that once Beethoven began to lose his hearing, he began to weave the rhythm of his heartbeat into his music. This is suggests he had an irregular heartbeat.

Their study is only speculation, but it does allow fans of his music to look at (and hear it) in a new light almost 190 years after his death.

If you have an irregular heartbeat please consult a cardiovascular specialist.
