The leading causes of death in the United States are a rogue's gallery of maladies—cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, last year, COVID-19. But one tops the list. It's heart disease, which was responsible for 23.1 percent of total deaths, or 1 in 4 people. That's 635,260 souls a year. The tragedy is, in many of these cases, the death could have been prevented.

Read on for 5 quick key takeaways that could save your life, according to science—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Have "Long" COVID and Don't Know It. 1 What is Heart Disease and Why Should You Care? Think of your heart as the engine that powers your body. This engine has vessels called arteries that help blood flow in and out of it. When these arteries become clogged by a substance called plaque, the flow is slowed or blocked entirely. The heart, as a result, stops. Alternately, the plaque can rupture, leading to blood clots. There are other ways your heart could be taxed, too—extra weight, for example, can put pressure on your heart and vessels. Keep reading to see who is most likely to develop heart disease, and how to ensure it doesn't happen to you. 2 Who is Most Likely to Die of Heart Disease? Men, smokers, those overweight or obese, anyone with a family history of heart diseas and folks over 55 are the most likely to die from heart disease. You cannot change your family history, nor your age or gender. You can, however, stop smoking, and if you're overweight or obese, there are proven ways to take their weight off, ways that can also bolster your heart health. A diet low in bad fats and high in protein, fiber and good fats can lead to less plaque buildup, and thus a strong heart. In the next slide, you'll learn how to take control of your heart health.RELATED: The #1 Cause of Heart Attack, According to Science 3 How to Take Control of Your Heart Health To take control of your heart health, choose healthy foods (no saturated or trans fats, limit salt and sugar) and drinks, keep a healthy weight, get regular physical activity and don't smoke. You'll also want to check your cholesterol, manage any diabetes and work with your heart health team. Controlling your blood pressure is also key. "Blood pressure measures the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. If your blood pressure stays high for a long time, you may suffer from high blood pressure (also called hypertension)," says the CDC. "High blood pressure increases your risk for heart attack or stroke more than any other risk factor." Ask your doctor what your blood pressure numbers are, and what needs to be done to get them in line. In our final slide, see what the signs of heart disease are. 4 Signs of Heart Disease When it comes to heart health, time is of the essence. Start healthy habits now and you can add years to your life. It's also a game of minutes. If you feel any warning signs of heart disease, like the following, contact a medical professional immediately:Fluttering in your chestRacing or slow heartbeatChest pain or discomfortShortness of breathLightheadedness or dizzinessThose are all signs your heart could be failing.

How many times have you tried to peel open a banana from the stem, only to be left with a bruised and bent fruit? Sometimes you can't even get it to open! If you're stuck with a mushy banana each time, it could be because you're eating bananas wrong. Here's how to properly peel a banana, so you don't end up in that situation again. (You might think there's no one right way to eat a banana, but it turns out there is.)Although a misshapen and browned banana isn't that big of a deal if you're tossing it in a smoothie or adding some slices to oatmeal, it doesn't look all that appetizing if you're nibbling on it raw as a snack. Luckily, you don't have to struggle any longer. We're about to reveal the proper way to eat a banana. And it all starts with how you peel it. (If you're looking for more helpful tips, check out the 21 Best Healthy Cooking Hacks of All Time.)You see, the stem of the common Cavendish banana (the species that stocks supermarket shelves) is the toughest part of the fruit. When you stop to think about it, it certainly makes sense why it should be so sturdy. The stem is where the fruit attaches to the rest of the cluster, and it's what's responsible for keeping the bananas attached to the plant.Trying to open it by pinching the hardest part of the berry is going to be more difficult than breaking it from any other point. That's why there's a more efficient alternative.What's the best way to peel a banana?You see the bananas growing on a tree here, but did you know what we consider to be the "bottom" is actually the top? Bananas grow from the stem upwards!So, contrary to how most of us have been doing it our entire lives, the best way to peel a banana is actually from upside down, which is really the right side up. By pinching the bottom tip, you can open the banana without struggling to snap the stubborn stem. (Now, do you believe us about eating bananas wrong?)Don't peel bananas from the stem. Pinch them at the tip, or what most people think of as the "bottom."What is the black part of a banana, anyway?As an added bonus, this method also helps you discard of the pesky black mass at the tip of the banana. Contrary to rumors surrounding what this part of the banana actually is—which range from spider eggs to a sterile seed—it's actually what's leftover from when the banana was a flower, according to research in the Annals of Botany.RELATED: 100+ healthy breakfast ideas that help you lose weight and stay slim.Peeling bananas from the end opposite the stem makes it easy to discard that black seed-like mass at the end of the berry. This black tip is actually the remains of the banana flower, not a seed. Cultivated bananas do have seeds, but they're actually the three rows of tiny black dots you see throughout the length of the banana.Now that you know how to properly eat a banana, you'll be able to peel the fruit the right way!

Don't get us wrong—there are a lot of incredible benefits to eating oatmeal. In fact, oatmeal is by far one of the best complex carbs to have in your diet because it assists with weight loss, protects your heart, and even helps you live longer. Nevertheless, you can eat too much of any food—no matter how healthy it is. That's why it's important to take note of this one major side effect of eating too much oatmeal at once.While oatmeal is considered one of the best carbs you can eat, too much oatmeal can actually cause an uncomfortable amount of belly bloat on your body. That's because oatmeal contains a significant amount of dietary fiber, and too much fiber at once can cause belly bloat if your body isn't used to it. (Related: The 7 Healthiest Foods to Eat Right Now)Why does fiber cause belly bloat? It has to do with the way your body digests it. Fiber is a type of indigestible carbohydrate found in plant cell walls that can actually attach itself to other carbohydrates you digest and flush them out of your system. This process is helpful for your gut health and digestion, and it can actually keep you feeling full for longer periods of time. Foods high in fiber include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, avocados, leafy greens, and of course, oats.Oats are known as a soluble fiber, which is a type of fiber that's good for your heart health and lowering your cholesterol. In a 1/2 cup serving of rolled-cut oats, you get 4 grams of dietary fiber, which is around 13% to 16% of your daily recommended intake, according to the American Heart Association (AHA).Oatmeal is still a great option for a meal or snack, but eating too much fiber at once could cause your body to experience some uncomfortable belly bloat—especially if you've never had that much fiber before. Americans average only 10 to 15 grams of dietary fiber on a daily basis when they really need 25 to 30 grams, per the AHA.However, going from eating hardly any fiber to eating a high-fiber diet will have some immediate negative side effects. One study published by the World Journal of Gastroenterology evaluated the fiber intake of participants after going on a two-week no-fiber diet. After two weeks, the control groups consumed different amounts of fiber for a few months. The results stated that high-fiber groups experienced symptoms of bloating and bowel movement issues.How much is too much? One report from Duke University's Student Health Nutrition Services states that eating above 70 grams of fiber will cause negative side effects.It's probably safe to say you likely won't be consuming 70 grams of fiber a day, but it's important to note that going from no fiber to 25 grams in one day could cause uncomfortable belly bloat. Numerous dietitians recommend starting off small with your fiber intake and increasing from there—which includes how much oatmeal you consume in a day. Just make sure to keep your bowl of oatmeal nutritious with these 11 Healthy Oatmeal Toppings That Help You Lose Weight!

On Saturday night, Elon Musk revealed that he has Asperger's Syndrome, a developmental disorder in the autism spectrum disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health. "I'm actually making history tonight as the first person with Asperger's to host SNL. Or at least the first person to admit it," Musk joked during his opening monologue. Per the NIH, Asperger's, abbreviated AS, is characterized by "a distinct group of neurological conditions." It was added to the American Psychiatric Association's official diagnostic manual in 1994, and impacts around one in 300 people, almost 90 percent male. Read on to learn about the signs that someone may present if they have Asperger's—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Have "Long" COVID and Don't Know It. 1 Obsessive Interest Per the NIH, the most distinguishing symptom of AS is a child's obsessive interest in a single object or topic to the exclusion of any other. "Children with AS want to know everything about their topic of interest and their conversations with others will be about little else," they explain. "Their expertise, high level of vocabulary, and formal speech patterns make them seem like little professors." 2 Repetitive Routines or Rituals People with AS can have routines "that resemble obsessive-compulsive behavior," per Harvard Health. "They are easily upset when their expectations are not met or their routines disturbed; for example, they may want to wear the same clothes and follow the same rigid schedule every day." 3 Peculiarities in Speech and Language The NIH reveals that people with Asperger's may communicate in a unique manner. "I don't always have a lot of intonation or variation in how I speak, which I'm told makes for great comedy," Musk said during SNL. The Autism Society explains that children with Asperger's Disorder frequently have good language skills, but use language in different ways. "Speech patterns may be unusual, lack inflection or have a rhythmic nature, or may be formal, but too loud or high-pitched," they say. "Children with Asperger's Disorder may not understand the subtleties of language, such as irony and humor, or they may not understand the give-and-take nature of a conversation." 4 Socially and Emotionally Inappropriate Behaviors "Look, I know I sometimes say or post strange things, but that's just how my brain works," Musk revealed during SNL. Per the Autism Society, people with AS may be socially awkward, not understand conventional social rules or show a lack of empathy. 5 Inability to Interact Successfully with Peers Because of their "poor social skills" and "narrow interests" children with AS may struggle to connect with their peers. "They may approach other people, but make normal conversation impossible by inappropriate or eccentric behavior, or by wanting only to talk about their singular interest," explains the NIH. 6 Problems with Non-Verbal Communications While they can interact verbally, people with AS may struggle with non-verbal communication. "They may have limited eye contact, seem unengaged in a conversation and not understand the use of gestures or sarcasm," explains the Autism Society. RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 7 Clumsy and Uncoordinated Motor Movements Per the NIH, children with AS may experience developmental delays in motor skills such as pedaling a bike, catching a ball, or climbing outdoor play equipment. "They are often awkward and poorly coordinated with a walk that can appear either stilted or bouncy," they explain.

There are usually cheap finds on each Costco warehouse trip—whether there's a big sale going on or if a product is just inexpensive as it is. You can even find some items for under $10! But those aren't the cheapest items Costco has in stock…and the real winner is under $2.The 5-pound box of Streit's Passover Matzos is $1.97 at Costco. Reddit user @peanutbuttahgainz spotted them recently in San Jose, Calif., and says they are the second cheapest items they've seen at the warehouse behind bananas, which are sold at about $0.50 a pound.Related: Costco Foods You Should Always Avoid, According to NutritionistsSome other Reddit users gave some info about why the giant box of unleavened Matzo is under $2—number one being that Passover ended on the evening of April 4.The post sparked a debate about what the cheapest Costco item of all time is, and other shoppers had some items they remember well.According to The Takeout, if a price at Costco ends in .97, it's a manager sale to "move stock." It makes sense, then, to discount Matzo after the holiday.Endings .98 and .99 are regular prices, but .29 or .79 means Costco got a deal from the manufacturer. If you see a .88, .00, or the infamous "death star," that means the item is discontinued or damaged and won't be restocked. One beloved item to get the death star recently is the Lavazza Espresso Italiano Whole Bean Coffee.To get all the latest news about Costco delivered right to your email inbox every day, sign up for our newsletter!

Is Bennifer back on?
Kathryn Boling, MD, a family medicine doctor with Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, doesn't automatically tell her patients to avoid nutritional supplements. "I'm a supplement taker myself," she says, specifically stinging nettle for allergies and vitamin D as an immunity booster. "But I am careful about what I'm recommending, depending on the person and what's going on with them." Boling adds that there are a few vitamins and supplements that you should never take, or should only take with serious caution, because of serious health risks of the potential for drug interactions. Read on to hear about 5 of them—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Have "Long" COVID and Don't Know It. 1 Vitamin E This once-popular antioxidant shouldn't be taken just for the heck of it. "Unless you have a reason to take vitamin E, you shouldn't be taking it as a random supplement," says Boling. "We used to think it was good to take because it's an antioxidant, but actually it turns out that the risk is higher than the benefit." That risk: Vitamin E thins the blood, which could turn minor injuries into serious bleeding episodes. 2 Kava This plant extract is one supplement that should never cross your lips. "Kava, which people have taken to help them with sleep, can cause liver failure," says Boling. "I tell patients it's not safe to take orally." 3 Tryptophan "Tryptophan is also something you can take to help you sleep, but it's linked to a disorder that's called EMS, which is a neurological condition that includes fatigue, intense muscle pain, and nerve pain," says Boling. Tryptophan is naturally present in small amounts in food, such as turkey and milk, "and that's not a problem," she adds. "But you should not take a tryptophan supplement." 4 Biotin This hair-and-nails supplement is available in very high doses, but Boling recommends her patients not take above 1 mg (1,000 mcg) daily. The reason: One study showed that men, in particular, had an increased risk of lung cancer if they were taking megadoses of biotin (5 mg to 10 mg daily); that risk wasn't associated with a 1 mg daily dose. 5 St. John's Wort This supplement was trendily touted as a natural antidepressant several years ago, but it should be taken with caution. "You shouldn't take it along with antidepressants, and it may interfere with birth control," says Boling. "You need to be careful about that." 6 Should You Take a Multivitamin? "Here's what I tell my patients," says Boling. "If you're like everybody else in the whole wide world, and you don't eat a perfect diet every day, a multivitamin is going to fill in the little deficits you have on a daily basis. And if you're OK paying money for something that you're mostly going to pee out—but it's going to fill in those tiny little deficits—then take a multivitamin. I do. I'm OK with that." 7 One Vitamin You Should Take Boling recommends that her patients take 2,000 IU of Vitamin D daily. Medical evidence suggests it can support the immune system, particularly important in the age of COVID. So consult with your doctor about taking some, and to protect your health, don't miss these Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers.

The Queen would have "still felt the steadiness" of Prince Phillip at her side during the Queen's Speech on Tuesday, a royal expert has said.

This year's Queen Speech - part of the State Opening of Parliament ceremony in which the government outlines its priorities for the months ahead - was a more pared down event, due to pandemic precautions.
