Diet Soda, Stroke Risk

For many people who have problems with weight and trying to do a diet, trying to choose the appropriate food intake with the diet program. One of them, who likes to drink soda, diet soda would choose. But there are less encouraging news for fans of diet soda, the drink was not a healthier alternative as expected. A recent study showed that diet sodas increase the risk for stroke, myocardial infarction, and death due to vascular disorders. "People who drink diet soda per day had 61% higher risk of vascular events than those who reported not drinking soda," said Chairman of the research team, Hannah Gardener, ScD, an epidemiologist from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in Florida, told reporters attending a press conference at the International Stroke Conference.

The risk persists after control for metabolic syndrome, peripheral vascular disease, and a history of heart disease (relative risk, 1.48; 95% confidence interval, 1.03 to 2.12). "This is a preliminary report of this association," a spokesman for the American Stroke Association, Larry Goldstein, MD. "I think it would be nice if done in moderation kalayak to see and consider this information in the context of risk factors other .."

The researchers examined 2,500 people who participated in the multiethnic study in Northern Manhattan. Participants were asked to report how many and what kind of soda they drink.
After a follow-up for approximately 9.3 years, there were 559 cases of vascular disorders, including ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.

The researchers also observed a significant slightly increased risk for vascular disorders among those who consume diet sodas every day and drink a soda once or more a month (adjusted relative risk, 1.74; 95% confidence interval, 0.96 to 3.16) .

As reported by the Medscape Medical News, the previous studies have revealed an association between diet soda consumption and the risk of developing metabolic syndrome and diabetes. But this is the first diet drinks have been linked to vascular disorders. "This is an observational study and not a prospective randomized trial," said Dr. Goldstein, of the Duke Stroke Center, in Durham, North Carolina, explains. "This is only an association and have not proven a causal relationship."
The researchers acknowledge that further research needs to be done. Potential mechanism to determine the relationship between diet soda and vascular events remain unsolved.

What should the doctor advised his patient based on the information we have today? Steven Greenberg, MD, of Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, suggested that the patient begin a healthy diet and regular exercise. "When the metabolic syndrome and diabetes risk has been resolved, then we need to consider reducing the consumption of soda." Dr.Greenberg is vice chairman of the Committee of the International Stroke Conference, and during the interview he suggested that the patient does not need to rush to eliminate the diet drinks.
"I think this is a warning sign," he said, "and we need seriously."
The research was funded by the Javits award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Evelyn McKnight Brain Institute.

Wake Up Early tips

Wake up an obligation, both for the students who attend school in the morning, for the office workers, and also for housewives to prepare breakfast for her family.
There is a Chinese proverb which says that a person will lose the sustenance if they are not early risers.
Recently I had a bad experience of waking up. I get a warning from the team leads me for being late when I attended a meeting in the morning. It certainly makes us look less professional.
Since then I started to learn to be able to get up early on a regular basis.
Here are some tips that have helped me to get up in the morning:

1. Do not sleep too late

One of the major causes we can not wake up in the morning is because we sleep too late or too early. Based on research co Ahong, humans need to sleep about 8 hours per day. Therefore, set your time to meet the needs of the time sleeping. For example, if you want to get up at 6 am, then the day before you go to bed around 10 pm.

2. Exercising regularly

Exercising regularly will make you physically tired at night and make it easier to fall asleep. Therefore, we can build more quickly in the morning.

3. Determine what time you want to wake up

Before you sleep, determine the specifics on what time you want to wake up. If we do not specify a specific time to wake up, it would be easier for us to fall asleep again when we wake up and put off our waking hours.

4. Set the alarm

Set the alarm is often not very helpful for us to wake up in the morning. Because when our alarm went off in the morning, we often turn off the alarm and fell asleep again. This can be overcome by storing the alarm in place that can not be reached from our bed. Try the alarm is placed near the door so we can get out after hearing the alarm.

5. Immediately wash your face after waking up and not fall back asleep

As soon as we wake up soon see that we wash our faces and do not fall back asleep.

Wake up also has a myriad of benefits. With up in the morning, we can breathe clean air for our lungs. We can also spend some time in the morning to give thanks to God when it was still quiet and not filled with the noise of the world.

Congratulations wake up!
