A recent study claims that many more people should be taking “intensive blood pressure-lowering” drugs to reduce their risk of heart attacks and strokes. Published in The Lancet medical journal in the form of a meta-analysis of 19 trials, the paper essentially asserts that all people deemed to be at risk should be given drug medication – even if their current blood pressure level is normal and irrespective of the danger of severe side-effects. Significantly, however, in its promotion of the study, the mass media failed to draw attention to the fact that half of the researchers who carried it out had connections to multinational drug companies or pro-pharmaceutical research interests.

Will you make a donation to help me reach my goal? It's fast and easy to do on my personal webpage. Just use this link http://goo.gl/oTRWqA

Your contribution will support the American Heart Association's work to:
* Put up-to-the-minute research into doctors' hands so they can better prevent and treat heart disease among patients.

* Train more than 9 million health professionals and others each year in emergency cardiovascular care.

Please support me in my efforts - together we can save lives!

New research shows vitamin D supplements can lower blood pressure and improve exercise performance
A new pilot study from Scotland has shown that taking vitamin D can lower blood pressure and improve exercise performance. Carried out by researchers from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and presented at this year’s Society for Endocrinology annual conference, the study notes that volunteers given the supplements for two weeks were able to cycle for longer with less exertion than those given placebo pills. Commenting on the results, researcher Dr Raquel Revuelta Iniesta said they suggest that “taking vitamin D supplements can improve fitness levels and lower cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure."
