Regular exercise helps prevent several conditions, but new research shows it could fight against the No. 2 killer—stroke.

A new clinical trial from the Netherlands Organisation of Applied Scientific Research is testing the efficacy of a vaccine that will immunize people against high levels of cholesterol and atherosclerosis.

The majority of working Americans wouldn’t know what to do in the event a coworker began having a heart attack in the office, according to two recent American Heart Association surveys.

Because the number of hospital visits and deaths related to consuming energy drinks has increased in recent years, researchers looked at how they affect the heart and blood pressure—and the findings may make physicians think differently.
