Researchers in Sweden have identified four simple living rules that can reduce the risk of back pain considerably: Drop cigarettes, drink moderate amounts of alcohol, get regular exercise and be sure to get a daily intake of fruits and vegetables.


An extensive research experiment at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm is the first to demonstrate the link between a healthy lifestyle and lifestyle diseases. The research experiment was conducted in the form of a public survey of 9000 men and women in Stockholm County, and the results are remarkable: Among the women who followed the four living rules, 9…

New article demonstrates the value of using measurement of blood flow in the heart to predict non-fatal heart attack

Patients with non-specific chest pain accounts for about half of all emergency admissions to coronary care units in hospitals. It has previously been assumed that it was relatively safe to send these patients home after admission, as the risk of being struck by a heart attack shortly supposed to be small.


Mette Jensen Stochkendahl has tested this assumption in collaboration with cardiologists at Odense University. The research group has studied if measuring the blood flow in the heart in patients with nonspecific chest pain can be used to predict future heart attack. The results showed that it was safe…
