A study by scientists at the Harvard Medical School recently suggested why recurring stress can result in heart attacks, a TIME article stated on June 22.
According to the study’s co-author Matthias Nahrendorf, white blood cells are produced in excess when an individual is under stress, but its constant overproduction can cause heart problems. The white blood cells become lodged on artery walls, resulting in irregular blood flow and eventually leading to clotting. Though the researchers connected chronic stress and heart attacks, other factors like high cholesterol, genetic traits, and smoking also largely influence the occurrence of cardiovascular diseases.
In addition to unhealthy behaviors like smoking, simply the ingestion of birth control pills like Yasmin or Yaz can increase the risk of women suffering from heart problems and severe blood clots. If you have been adversely affected by these pills’ dangerous side effects, the lawyers at Williams Kherkher may represent you to hold drug makers responsible.

Recently, Bed Handles Inc., in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, issued a voluntary recall for 113,000 adult bed handles. The recalled bed handles pose a strangulation and entrapment risk and have already been linked to 3 deaths.
All of the recalled bed handles were sold in the United States and Canada between 1994 and 2007. The dangerous bed handles do not include safety retention straps which are designed to fasten the bed handles to the bed’s frame.
When the handles aren’t attached to the bed frame, they can slip and create a dangerously small gap capable of strangling or trapping someone. Bed Handles Inc., is urging people who own the recalled bed handles to discontinue use.
