Is Your Multivitamin Doing Anything For Your Heart?

Multivitamins have long been seen as a quick solution for a number of problems, the most notable being heart disease and stroke. Recently, though, a new study has shown that they, in fact, don’t prevent either. The American Heart Association reports that one third of American consume multivitamins, convinced that they will solve their cardiac problems. A recent study, released by Dr. Joonseok Kim states that, “One of the big problems with multivitamin use is that it could deviate the public from following the measures that are proven to be beneficial for cardiovascular health, including eating fruits and vegetables, and doing more exercise.” Another study recently concluded that multivitamins offer no protection against heart disease and stroke.

What is ALS, The Disease That Killed Stephen Hawking?

(CNN)Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, more commonly known as ALS, is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that make the muscles of both the upper and lower body work. Those nerve cells lose their ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which leads to paralysis and death. People with the condition lose control of muscle movement, eventually losing their ability to eat, speak, walk and, ultimately, breathe. Its most famous sufferer was famed physicist Stephen Hawking, who died on Wednesday at the age of 76. ALS is also called Lou Gehrig's disease, named after the famous baseball player who retired in 1939 because of the condition. Other notable sufferers actor David Niven, NBA Hall of Famer George Yardley and jazz musician Charles Mingus. Little is known about the causes of the disease, and there is currently no cure. The condition is slightly more common in men than women. Unusually long life-span Hawking, diagnose…
