Heart Disease Blog Disappears

The heart disease news blog that I linked to not long ago has mysteriously disappeared. Luckily, I still have the last few news items in my aggregator. Unluckily, they pretty much lack references now. Those that I can rediscover references for, I will post below:

  • High intake of vegetable protein linked with lower blood pressure – A recent epidemiological study found that a high intake of vegetable protein correlated with low blood pressure.
  • Low blood pressure might not be good if you already have some heart failure – where the article in the previous bullet points out what is normally considered advantageous — low blood pressure in a healthy system — it turns out that low blood pressure in heart failure is associated with higher mortality, per this American Heart Journal article.

That’s it. If you know why that blog was shut down, please comment or send me an email.
