Social stress combined with job strain may significantly raise a woman's risk of developing coronary heart disease, a new study suggests. According to research published this week in the Journal of the American Heart Association, experiencing job strain—which occurs when a woman has inadequate power in the workplace to respond to the job's demands and expectations—along with social strain is associated with a 21% higher risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD). Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise.Women Who Reported High-Stress Life Events Had a 12% Higher Risk of Coronary Heart DiseaseFor the new study, researchers at Drexel University evaluated the effect of psychosocial stress on 80,825 postmenopausal women who were tracked by the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study from 1991 to 2015. The participants reported their stress levels and sources on questionnaires.The scientists found that 4.8% of the women developed coronary heart disease during the 14-year study. After adjusting for age, other stressors, job tenure, and socioeconomic factors, they determined that women who reported high-stress life events had a 12% higher risk of CHD, and high social strain was associated with a 9% increased risk. RELATED: The Easiest Way to Avoid a Heart Attack, Say DoctorsTo measure social strain, defined as the "negative aspect of social relations," study participants were asked about "the number of people who get on their nerves, who ask too much of them, who exclude them, and who try to coerce them in their current life."Job strain was not by itself associated with CHD risk, but the researchers found a "significant association" between job strain and social strain, determining that women who reported both had a 21% higher risk of CHD."Psychosocial stress typically occurs when people have difficulty in coping with challenging environmental conditions and can lead to dysregulation of homeostasis that may result in illness," the researchers wrote. "Recently, several large research studies identified that psychosocial stress from different domains of life (eg, finance, work, and relationships) may play a role in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD)."RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" CancersCould COVID Stress Impact Women's Heart Health?"The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted ongoing stresses for women in balancing paid work and social stressors," said study senior author Yvonne Michael, ScD, SM, an associate professor in the Dornsife School of Public Health. "We know from other studies that work strain may play a role in developing CHD, but now we can better pinpoint the combined impact of stress at work and at home on these poor health outcomes."She added: "My hope is that these findings are a call for better methods of monitoring stress in the workplace and remind us of the dual-burden working women face as a result of their unpaid work as caregivers at home.""Our findings are a critical reminder to women, and those who care about them, that the threat of stress to human health should not go ignored," said the study's lead author, Conglong Wang, Ph.D. "This is particularly pertinent during the stressors caused by a pandemic."

"The key to treating dementia is prevention," says Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN's chief medical correspondent and a practicing neurosurgeon, in his new book Stay Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age. Gupta notes that brain changes that result in dementia have been found to begin 20 to 30 years before a diagnosis, making prevention an urgent and worthy goal. "And it just so happens that the same things you can do to reduce your risk for the disease are what you can do to improve your quality of life as you live with the disease," he adds. These are five ways you can start preventing dementia now and live a better life today. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Exercise This is the most important thing you can do to keep your brain healthy, says Gupta. "Exercise, both aerobic and nonaerobic (strength training), is not only good for the body; it's even better for the brain," he writes in Keep Sharp. "The connection between physical fitness and brain fitness is clear, direct, and powerful." He recommends regular movement, whether that's taking the stairs instead of the elevator or strenuous exercise. If you exercise regularly, Gupta suggests mixing up your routine. 2 Stay Social "Social interaction is one of the big predictors of neurogenesis," or creation of new brain cells, which prevents dementia, said Gupta in the South China Morning Post. "Social interaction is near the top of the list when it comes to making new brain cells. Connecting with others has been known to be important for a long time. But we now know that it leads to the release of certain hormones like oxytocin, which foster neurogenesis." 3 Get Quality Sleep "There is a rinse cycle that happens in your brain when you sleep," said Gupta. "You are basically clearing out metabolic waste. That happens when you are awake, but the process is close to 60 percent more efficient when you are asleep. You're clearing out plaque and tangles, and all the things that lead to dementia. You're helping the brain run more smoothly." How much sleep do you need? "Seven to nine hours, if you can do it," Gupta told Terry Gross on NPR's "Fresh Air." "If you're dreaming in the morning right before you wake up, that's a pretty good sign. That probably means that you've spent a fair amount of your evening, your night, consolidating memories and going through the rinse cycle." 4 Eat Well In the book, Gupta says what's "good for the heart is good for the brain" and that "clean living can slash your risk of developing a serious mind-destroying disorder, including Alzheimer's disease, even if you carry genetic risk factors." He advocates a heart-healthy diet that includes plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from natural sources, small portions, little sugar, and plenty of water. Sanjay says he personally eats very little meat and less overall throughout the day—breakfast "like a king," lunch "like a prince" and dinner "like a pauper."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 5 Try New Things Doing new things is literally exercise for the brain. Gupta recommends reading a book that's outside of your usual interests; taking a class in cooking, art or continuing education; joining a writing group; or learning a new language.

Do you protect your heart as well as you protect yourself against COVID-19? Although you're right to take precautions against viruses big and small, it's heart disease that remains the #1 cause of death in America. Dr. Monique May, a board-certified physician, and founder of Physician in the Kitchen, based in Charlotte, NC, helps her patients make sure they have the healthiest hearts possible. Read on for her free and essential 5-point plan for making sure yours is as healthy as it can be—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Control the Risk Factors for Heart Disease That You Can Control Dr, May lists the factors you can control, and advises how to get a handle on them:"If you smoke, stop. If you have high blood pressure, work with your doctor to make sure your blood pressure remains < 120/80. If you have high cholesterol, discuss with your doctor ways to lower your bad cholesterol and raise your good cholesterol through diet, exercise, and medication. If you have diabetes, aim for a target HgbA1c of less than 6.5%. Try to maintain an ideal weight for your height. If you are obese (BMI >30), then try to lose at least 10% of your current weight. Speak with your doctor about the best way to achieve this." For the next four steps, read on. 2 Sleep Your Best "Get adequate amounts of sleep and reduce your stress levels as well," says Dr. May. She's right. "Researchers found that the risk of heart attack increased the further that people's habitual night sleep diverged from 6–9 hours. Individuals who slept 5 hours each night, for example, had a 52% higher risk of a first heart attack than those who slept 7–8 hours," reports Medical News Daily. 3 Reduce Your Stress It's almost a cliché out of a movie—some guy gets a stressful phone call with bad news and drops dead of a heart attack. But it can happen. And the wear and tear of constant stress can also hurt your heart, especially if you're a woman. "Women's hearts are affected by stress and depression more than men's," says the Mayo Clinic. "Depression makes it difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle and follow recommended treatment, so talk to your doctor if you're having symptoms of depression." 4 Eat a Diet Rich in Fruits and Vegetables May says to eat a diet "rich in fruits and vegetables. They contain antioxidants and plant chemicals that can prevent and reverse heart disease," says May. "Try to eat 5-13 servings per day, including nuts, grains, and seeds."RELATED: The Easiest Way to Avoid a Heart Attack, Say Doctors 5 Watch for Any Signs of a Heart Attack If you feel chest pain, weak or lightheaded, or pain in your jaw, neck, back, arms or shoulders, you may be having a heart attack. Also watch for shortness of breath while lying down. It can be described as having difficulty laying down and breathing simultaneously. "People with this condition often have to prop themselves up with pillows in order to sleep at night because when they lie flat they may feel like they are being suffocated or drowning," explains May. "If you are having to use two or more pillows to prop your head up so that you can breathe and lie down at the same time, it may be a sign that your heart is failing and you should see a doctor immediately."

Once you've been vaccinated against the coronavirus, you can act like everything is basically normal, and go where you want to go, right? Well…Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical advisor to the President and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says not so fast. Cases are still too high. "Yesterday there were close to 80,000 new infections and we've been hanging around 60, 70, 75,000," he said on MSNBC. As for yourself, he says there are some places you shouldn't go even if they're open. Read on—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Eating Indoors The CDC considers "on-site dining with indoor seating, where seating capacity is not reduced and tables not spaced at least 6 feet apart" to be the highest risk dining scenario. Fauci would agree. Since the pandemic started, he has ordered takeout and delivery only, calling restaurants a danger due to being possibly poorly ventilated, and you have to take your mask off to eat, thus spraying droplets. It "may take several months into the second half and beyond 2021," until you can eat in one safely again, he said in an interview with MSNBC. When asked on MSNBC Sunday night if it was safe to go out to eat indoors after vaccination, Dr. Fauci said flat out: "No, it's still not." 2 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Congregate Gatherings Just because you're vaccinated doesn't mean you should enter a large crowd, take off your mask and feel safe. In fact, you might be endangering others. "A vaccine right now is not a substitute for the normal standard public health measures of wearing a mask, keeping your distance, avoiding congregate, crowded sections, and particularly indoors," Fauci says. "It's not a substitute. It compliments it only when you get the level of infection in society so low that it's no longer a public health threat." 3 Dr. Fauci Says Avoid Bars The CDC says: "The risk of COVID-19 spread increases in a restaurant or bar setting as interactions within 6 feet of others increase" and Fauci agrees. "Avoid bars," he has said bluntly. Most are indoors, you are likely to lose your inhibitions there, and thus forget to follow public health measures—not to mention, you can't drink a beer while wearing a mask.RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 4 Dr. Fauci Says Use Caution in Houses of Worship "You always have to take into account what the dynamic of the outbreak is in your particular region," Dr. Fauci has said about religious gatherings. "Having said that, when you're dealing with a nationwide outbreak like we have right now, you've really got to take precautions…The people who are within 6, 10 feet of each other really need to" wear masks, he says.Churches should "limit the number of people, so that you don't have people in the pews right next to each other," he said. 5 How to Stay Healthy During the Pandemic Follow Fauci's fundamentals and help end this surge, no matter where you live—wear a face mask, social distance, avoid large crowds, don't go indoors with people you're not sheltering with (especially in bars), practice good hand hygiene, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
Blood clots have been reported in a small minority of people after receiving COVID-19 vaccines by AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.
The siblings are the best of friends.
The ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 17.
In a (perhaps temporary) blow to the fight against the coronavirus, the FDA and CDC just recommended the United States pause distribution of the Johnson&Johnson vaccine "out of an abundance of caution" as the agencies investigate links to blood clots. The US has taken the recommendation; if you have signed up to get a J&J vaccine for today, you will not be able to get one. Read on to see what you should do next—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 1 The FDA Says 6 Cases of a "Rare and Severe" Blood Clot Were Discovered Tweeted the FDA: "Today FDA and @CDCgov issued a statement regarding the Johnson&Johnson #COVID19 vaccine. We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution.As of 4/12, 6.8m+ doses of the J&J vaccine have been administered in the U.S. CDC&FDA are reviewing data involving 6 reported U.S. cases of a rare&severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the vaccine. Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rareTreatment of this specific type of blood clot is different from the treatment that might typically be administered." Read on to see who was affected, and if it could happen to you. 2 Those Affected Were All Woman—and One Died, With Another in Critical Condition "All six recipients were women between the ages of 18 and 48," reports the New York Times. "One woman died and a second woman in Nebraska has been hospitalized in critical condition, the officials said. Nearly seven million people in the United States have received Johnson&Johnson shots so far, and roughly nine million more doses have been shipped out to the states, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention." 3 The FDA Will Announce More at 10 am Today and the CDC Will Be Reviewing These Cases Says the FDA, which will be holding a press conference at 10 am: "CDC will convene a meeting of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) on Wednesday to further review these cases and assess their potential significance. FDA will review that analysis as it also investigates these cases.Until that process is complete, we are recommending this pause. This is important to ensure that the health care provider community is aware of the potential for these adverse events and can plan due to the unique treatment required with this type of blood clot." 4 The CDC Says Blood Clots in General are Not Uncommon Vaccine aside, "Blood clots can affect anyone, and blood clots can be prevented," says the CDC. "On average, one American dies of a blood clot every 6 minutes." What are they? "A blood clot in one of the large veins, usually in a person's leg or arm, is called a deep vein thrombosis or DVT. When a blood clot like this forms, it can partly or completely block the flow of blood through the vein. If a DVT is not treated, it can move or break off and travel to the lungs. A blood clot in the lung is called pulmonary embolism or PE, and can cause death and requires immediate medical attention."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 5 Know the Signs of a Blood Clot "Recognize the signs and symptoms, and normal blood clots can be safely treated," says the CDC:"DVT (Arm or Leg) – if you experience any of these, call your doctor as soon as possible.Swelling of your leg or armPain or tenderness not caused by an injurySkin that is warm to the touch, with swelling or painRedness of the skin, with swelling or painPE (Lung) – if you experience any of these, seek medical attention immediately.Difficulty breathingChest pain that worsens with a deep breathCoughing up bloodFaster than normal or irregular heartbeat"How concerned should you be, if you had the J&J vaccine or want one? That is unclear at this time. "It is common for regulators to investigate so-called 'safety signals' in new vaccines and other medical products. Very often, the signals prove not to be of concern," says the Times. "But the concerns about Johnson&Johnson's vaccine mirror concerns about AstraZeneca's, which European regulators began investigating last month after some recipients developed blood clots."

After getting your COVID-19 vaccine, you might feel something before you even leave the site—namely, the desire to tear off your mask and start your "normal" life again. But slow down. Right after getting the shot, you are not fully vaccinated or protected—it takes at least two weeks after your final dose to be so—and there are other things you should never do. Read on to see 5 things you should never do, counting down to #1—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Signs Your Illness is Actually Coronavirus in Disguise. 5 Don't Take These Medications After Vaccination Unless You're Sure It's OK, Says CDC "Talk to your doctor about taking over-the-counter medicine, such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, or antihistamines, for any pain and discomfort you may experience after getting vaccinated," says the CDC. "You can take these medications to relieve post-vaccination side effects if you have no other medical reasons that prevent you from taking these medications normally." 4 Don't Worry if You Feel This After Your Vaccine, Says CDC "After COVID-19 vaccination, you may have some side effects," says the CDC. "These are normal signs that your body is building protection. The side effects from COVID-19 vaccination, such as chills or tiredness, may affect your ability to do daily activities, and they should go away in a few days." They add: "Side effects after your second shot may be more intense than the ones you experienced after your first shot. These side effects are normal signs that your body is building protection and should go away within a few days." 3 Don't Hesitate to Contact Your Doctor if You Have the Following Side Effects, Says CDC "In most cases, discomfort from pain or fever is a normal sign that your body is building protection. Contact your doctor or healthcare provider:If the redness or tenderness where you got the shot gets worse after 24 hoursIf your side effects are worrying you or do not seem to be going away after a few days" 2 Don't Stop Following Public Safety Precautions, Says CDC "We're still learning how vaccines will affect the spread of COVID-19," says the CDC. "After you've been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you should keep taking precautions—like wearing a mask, staying 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces—in public places until we know more."RELATED: This COVID Vaccine Has the Most Side Effects, Study Says 1 Don't Leave the Vaccination Site Until After at Least 15 Minutes, Says CDC The CDC advises all people to wait at least 15 minutes at the vaccination site after getting vaccinated to remain under observation, to make sure you don't experience an allergic reaction. "Wait 30 minutes if you qualify for the following:History of an immediate allergic reaction of any severity to a vaccine or injectable therapyPeople with a contraindication to a different type of COVID-19 vaccine (for example, people with a contraindication to mRNA COVID-19 vaccines who receive Janssen viral vector vaccine should be observed for 30 minutes following Janssen vaccination).History of anaphylaxis due to any cause15 minutes: All other people."So with that in mind, get vaccinated when it becomes available to you, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
