#Physical Activity as a Critical Component of First-Line Treatment for Elevated Blood #Pressure or #Cholesterol: Who, What, and How?: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association

Current guidelines published by the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology broadly recommend lifestyle approaches to prevent and treat elevated blood pressure and cholesterol. For patients with mildly or moderately elevated blood pressure and blood cholesterol, lifestyle-only approaches are the first line of therapy. The purpose of this scientific statement is to: …

Reduced coupling between cerebrospinal fluid flow and global #brain activity is linked to #Alzheimer disease–related pathology

The glymphatic system plays an important role in clearing the amyloid-β (Aβ) and tau proteins that are closely linked to Alzheimer disease (AD) pathology. Glymphatic clearance, as well as Aβ accumulation, is highly dependent on sleep, but the sleep-dependent driving forces behind cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) movements essential to the glymphatic flux remain largely unclear. Recent …
