The study, in the New England Journal of Medicine, is the first large survey since the adoption of new treatments and medicines for preventing heart attacks. It examined more than 46,000 heart attack hospitalizations.

Dr. Robert Yeh of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston and colleagues said the 24 percent drop was seen even though doctors can better detect heart attacks and despite the growing rates of diabetes and obesity, both of which raise the risk of heart attack.

“We would expect an increase in heart attacks because we’re picking up more heart attacks than we used to,” Yeh said in a telephone interview. “We found that, despite that, they are still going down.”

His team used data from the 3 million people in the Kaiser Permanente Northern California health system.

Over 50 Aerobics

Research tells us that exercise is good for all older people.

AerobicsAerobic exercise is especially good.  It helps older adults move more easily and feel better. Even people in their 90s can improve their aerobic fitness.

Older adults who are fit are likely to have a better quality of life and to live longer. If we lose fitness, daily tasks such as housework and gardening tire us out. When we feel strained or too tired, we stop doing these tasks. Then we can start to decline, doing less, getting less fit and weaker, and you end up doing even less activity. We can end up needing others to help with the simple daily tasks of living on our own.

Vitamins Plus Ibuprofen May Ward Off Alzheimer’s

For patients at high risk of Alzheimer’s disease, taking a combination of vitamins E and C plus ibuprofen significantly reduces their risk, results of a longitudinal study suggest.

DementiaSpecifically, the combination seems to benefit people who carry a variant of the gene for apolipoprotein, APOE-4, which is known to put them at high risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease.

“We found that for people at low risk, taking vitamin C and E alone is sufficient to further reduce their risk,” Dr. Majid Fotuhi told Reuters Health. “But for those with (APOE-4), the combination exerts a synergistic benefit.”

Fotuhi, from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and his associates followed nearly 5000 elderly residents of Cache County in Utah for 8 years, taking into account their regular consumption of vitamins C and E, and ibuprofen.
