A study from the University of Granada has identified a new exercise-based test that can assess a child’s risk of developing a cardiovascular disease or myocardial infarction in their lifetime.

Researchers from Hallym University's College of Medicine in Seoul Korea found in a new study that women who breastfeed longer during their lifetimes may be able to lower their risk of metabolic syndrome and other disorders.

Employees at large companies could be at an increased risk of of serious medical conditions, according to a new study by IBM Watson and the American Heart Association (AHA) that found they are more susceptible to developing heart disease and stroke.

Giving children extra minutes at the playground could be good for their arteries, according to new research that suggests intense physical activity could prevent them from developing heart disease later in life.

Routine heart screenings play an important role in detecting cardiovascular conditions early before they become life-threatening, but a new survey by Orlando Health shows most women aren’t clear on the age they should start being tested.
