heart problems

  1. Sex your way to fitness

    Forget running -- try sex instead

    Show me someone who likes gym exercise and I'll show you someone who's either a liar or a masochist (or both).

    There's only one place people REALLY like to grunt, groan, moan and sweat, and that's in the bedroom -- and new research shows why sex is just about the only form of "exercise" that gets my full endorsement: It works!

    In fact, you can burn almost as many calories hitting the mattress as you would hitting the pavement or treadmill.

    For men, sex burns 4.2 calories per minute. And for women, a good bedroom romp will burn off 3.1 calories per minute, according to the new study. That's more than a walk... but not quite as much as a run.

    And while walking and running only work out the legs -- and come with a risk of knee and ankle damage -- sex will get your whole body moving and grooving at once.

    And if you do it right, there's no risk of injury.

    The downside? If you want to burn more calories, you need your sex sessions to last longer than a commercial break.

    Most people manage to do that easily, with the study showing that the average session lasts 24 minutes -- long enough for men to burn off 104 calories and women to burn off 69 calories.

    But 24 minutes is what I'd call "a good start." If you REALLY want good sex and good exercise at the same time -- and if you really want to please both your partner and yourself -- make it last a whole lot longer than 24 minutes.

    It's worth the extra effort -- because along with moving your muscles and burning calories, sex can help prevent heart problems, and even help you recover if you already have them.

    If that's not enough, sex also unleashes a wave of feel-good endorphins, which can help lift your mood, ease stress, fight pain, boost your immune system and prevent disease.

    Of course, there's only so much sex you can have in a day (but feel free to test your limit), and that means you also have to pick some other ways to stay active.

    But you still don't need to waste time and money -- or risk injury -- in a gym.

  2. Low fat dieters have higher heart risk

    Low-fat diet takes a deadly turn

    It's the biggest nag in modern medicine -- one you've heard countless times from mainstream doctors, government health officials, and know-it-all TV talking heads.

    Saturated fat is bad for you!

    Just one problem with that advice: Saturated fat ISN'T bad for you. In fact, it's absolutely critical to your body and especially to your heart -- but don't take my word for it.

    Ask the heart patients who took part in a study where half of them were forced to slash their intake of supposedly unhealthy saturated animal fats and increase their intake of supposedly healthy polyunsaturated fats such as safflower oil.

    Well... you can try to ask them. Just don't expect too many answers -- because the ones who made that switch started dropping like flies.

    They died off at DOUBLE the rate of the heart patients who were allowed to keep eating saturated animal fats. They had a higher risk of death from all causes, and more specifically a higher risk of death from heart disease and other heart problems, according to the study in BMJ.

    What'd I tell you?

    Of course, I've been saying this for decades now, and the science has backed me up time and time again. Yet mainstream talking heads and government officials keep telling you to eat your vegetables until you start to sprout yourself.

    Then they have the audacity to wonder why heart disease remains our leading cause of death, year after year after year!

    Well, it's time to stop the wondering. If you want to protect your heart and live a long and healthy life, eat real butter, real steak, and all the fresh natural animal fats -- SATURATED fats -- you can handle.

    Skip the sugars, skip the carbs, skip the processed foods, and skip the vegetable oils in all their forms.

    And if you want to nibble on a plant or two, be my guest -- but do it because you want to, not because you have to.

  8. Aspirin as dangerous as rat poison

    Here's an easy way to make stomach-wrecking aspirin look downright reasonable: Just compare it to something even worse. That's always the story behind any study that gives aspirin a thumbs-up, and this latest one is no different.
  9. Heart patients: Just 'do it'

    Bouncing back after a heart attack doesn't mean you have to stop bouncing in the bedroom. Sex is actually the SAFEST cardiovascular workout around, even for heart patients.
