Erectile dysfunction makes for a lot of cheesy commercials and frustrating situations in the bedroom. But, romantic failure may not be the most serious thing to worry about. A new study from the New England Research Institutes shows men with erectile dysfunction are 40% more likely to suffer from cardiovascular disease (CVD). It makes sense that erectile dysfunction and heart disease might be connected because they both have to do with how well blood vessels are working. A number of studies have made this connection. What the researchers of the latest study wanted to find out was whether erectile dysfunction might improve the accuracy of risk predictions based on traditional risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, and family history. They calculated heart disease risk factors for over a thousand middle-aged and older men. The results? While erectile dysfunction did point to increased heart disease risk, it didn't make predictions any more precise than the usual methods. That's frustrating because many men fall into a middle range of risk so it's hard for doctors to pick out the ones who would really benefit the most from aggressive measures to reduce the chance of CVD. Although the researchers were disappointed that adding erectile dysfunction to heart disease risk formulas didn't help them predict the future any more clearly, they say knowing about trouble in the bedroom might still help save lives.

*******www.mditv**** -- A time may be coming when medication isn't the default treatment for high cholesterol. A study from the University of Michigan encourages physicians to look at several factors before prescribing statins, and suggests that knowing a person's overall heart attack risk is more important than just knowing their cholesterol level. "LDL cholesterol alone explains just nine percent of an individual's risk of cardiovascular events, and sufficient attention is not given to the remaining 91 percent," says Dr. Rodney Hayward, lead researcher of the study. The study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, worked with more than four thousand patients and calls this approach of looking at a patient's overall heart attack risk "tailored treatment". In this type of treatment, if high cholesterol was a young patient's only risk factor, changes in diet and exercise would be considered better options than medication. This is thought to improve a patient's quality of life because statins can have unpleasant side effects like muscle aches as well as affects on the liver.

*******www.mditv**** -- We often hear about the health benefits of lowering our blood pressure and cholesterol levels, as well as other risk factors for heart attack. But not everyone with high cholesterol suffers a heart attack, and lots of people with low cholesterol do. Heart attacks are the life-changing events you want to pay attention to, whereas cholesterol and blood pressure are simply risk factors. Yet, we often hear about medical studies reporting a certain drug or other intervention lowering cholesterol or blood pressure. These results are often called intermediate or surrogate endpoints. They are milestones along the way to real health outcomes, not the final destination. Putting too much stock in intermediate outcomes can sometimes fool us.

What is Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)? *******www.footandanklecare**** Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D) is a serious circulatory condition where clogged or narrowed arteries cause poor circulation to the arms, legs, brain or kidneys. It occurs most often in the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Just like buildup in the heart, clogged arteries in the lower extremities can cause stroke or heart attack. Over 10 million Americans have P.A.D. and, left untreated, P.A.D. is fatal 30% of the time within a five-year period.* Fortunately, today there is a non-invasive technology that can determine the presence of P.A.D. PADnet + is a P.A.D. test that can be completed in 15-20 minutes during a regular office visit. For patients with increased risk factors, including those being 50 years of age or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, being informed about this arterial disease is especially essential. Leg pain and discoloration of the toes or feet are possible symptoms of P.A.D. It is important to note, however, that many people with P.A.D. do not experience any symptoms. Testing can help determine if you have P.A.D. and whether medical or surgical treatment is necessary.

Of all the populations in the country, African-Americans have the highest cancer death rate and the shortest survival rate from the time of diagnosis of any ethnic group. *******bit.ly/bLbai2 To help address these health disparities and investigate the reasons why this population is more at risk, the Department of Health Disparities Research at MD Anderson established Project CHURCH to "Create a Higher Understanding of Cancer Research and Community Health." Project CHURCH began in December 2008 as a three-year study to investigate behavioral, social and environmental risk factors that contribute to cancer-related health disparities between population groups. The study recruited 1,500 participants from Windsor Village United Methodist Church, one of Houston's largest African-American churches. Participants receive prevention services, referrals, educational materials and navigation assistance to health services and resources. Lead investigator on the study, Lorna Haughton McNeill, Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of Health Disparities Research talks with Pastor Irv White about the need for such a study and the potential impact on the participants ants and the community.

BY LIZ REED You're watching multisource health news analysis from Newsy Dentists and doctors are warning -- think twice before gettin’ down. A new study suggests oral sex is the leading cause of oral cancer in non-smoking men in the U.S.. But how does sex lead to cancer? It’s a nasty sexually transmitted virus called HPV. Right now, about 20 million Americans have HPV, but because many never see symptoms, many don’t know they have it. KDSK breaks it down: Repoter: “When an HPV infection doesn't clear, or you're exposed multiple times by multiple partners, some people will go on to develop genital warts, or even cancer. Doctor: "The more times you are exposed, the greater the chance that you may develop cancer, just from a probability statement." KOIN identifies teen sexual attitudes as the source of the rapid spread. One dentist tells them if society doesn’t change, we’ll be dealing with a pandemic. Reporter: “Many teenagers who engage in oral sex don’t consider it to be real sex and view it as more casual. Dr. Oh says if that doesn’t change it might lead to a HPV epidemic and more cases of oral cancer.” Dentist: “80% of the population will eventually have HPV which is very scary to think about.” Dentist News Network reveals the biggest threat facing oral cancer patients are the dentists. Those who only perform selective cancer screenings based on common risk factors like age and genetics don’t realize the HPV threat. “Unfortunately, pre-screening still occurs in many dental offices because professionals are unaware of the new risk factor, HPV. And although it was reasonable in the past to pre-screen based on common risk factors, HPV now debunks this concept since HPV causes cancer in individuals that do not have the traditional risk factors. Everyone is at risk.” But if HPV vaccines have been approved since 2006, why wasn’t there a bigger push to get teens vaccinated? A contributor for AOL scrutinizes the manufactures’ one-sided view of the issue: “The massive push to vaccinate girls and women between the ages of 11 and 26 against HPV should have included boys and men from the beginning... But at the time [the vaccine] was licensed, there wasn't such an awareness about head or oral cancers or a willingness to accept that males played a part in the transmission of the virus.” According to the Center for Disease Control, only half of people who've been diagnosed with oral cancer will live longer than five years.
