4 Your Health: A key ingredient in heart disease and more people willing to tune in to a tele-doctor

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A new survey reveals 60 percent of American adults are willing to use telemedicine to interact with a nurse or doctor.

College graduates and those with higher incomes were more inclined to use telemedicine but younger adults were the most comfortable with the idea. 70-percent of millennials said they would use live video for healthcare because of the accessibility and convenience.

Researchers have identified a nutrient in meat and eggs that may increase the risk of heart disease.

A small new study shows choline increases gut bacteria and produces a blood compound that can lead to clotting, heart attack and stroke. Patients who were given high dose choline supplements for one month had a ten fold increase in this blood clotting compound.

A separate study showed adding a low dose of aspirin may reduce the risk of heart disease in meat eaters.
