4 Your Health: diets double up on heart disease; revelations about CPR

Posted: Updated:

A new study finds men are more likely to receive bystander CPR in public than women.

Scientists from the University Pennsylvania analyzed nearly 20,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. They found 45 percent of men got assistance in public settings compared to 39 percent of women.

Men were also more likely to survive after getting CPR.

No need to wait to learn CPR

Adolescents are capable of learning and performing CPR.

researchers used music and a video game to teach hands-only CPR to a group of sixth graders.

After the training, most students performed CPR in the correct location with high-quality compressions.

Experts say there is no need to wait until high school to teach young people this potentially life-saving skill.

Double dose diet

Combining two heart healthy diets can significantly lower blood pressure in adults with hyper-tension.

Researchers assessed the effects of a low sodium diet and the dash diet which is rich in vegetables, whole grains, fish and poultry. Both diets reduced high blood pressure but the combination was especially effective.
