Heart disease risk in women increases leading up to menopause; early intervention is key
Menopause may augment age-dependent increases in arterial stiffness.
Alzheimer’s disease impacts nearly 6 million Americans.
For older adults, it may seem as though the die is already cast regarding their odds of developing dementia.
Effects of more than one-year exposure to air pollution on atherosclerosis is seldom studied.
Cardiovascular fat in women at midlife: effects of race, overall adiposity, and central adiposity. The SWAN Cardiovascular Fat Study
Cardiovascular fat (CF) is associated with greater coronary heart disease (CHD) risk.
Even healthy people are at risk, but those with heart failure should take particular note of today’s news.

Femoral Artery Atherosclerosis Is Associated With Physical Function Across the Spectrum of the Ankle Brachial Index – The San Diego Population Study
The ankle‐brachial index (ABI) is inadequate to detect early‐stage atherosclerotic disease, when interventions to prevent functional decline may be the most effective.
Increased Aortic Calcification Is Associated with Arterial Stiffness Progression in Multiethnic Middle-Aged Men
Arterial stiffness is established as an independent predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Lipid Changes Around the Final Menstrual Period Predict Carotid Subclinical Disease in Postmenopausal Women
Atherogenic changes in lipids occur among women around the time of the natural menopause, that is, within 1 year of the final menstrual period (FMP). We investigated whether lipid changes around the FMP are related to carotid intima-media thickness, interadventitial diameter, and plaque in postmenopausal women.
