Maybe video games can be good for you? No, one your kids did not put us up to this post…according to a recent study certain Active Wii sports™ video games and some Wii Fit™ activities may increase adults’ energy expenditure as much as moderately intense exercise, according to the American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2009.

Link between Rheumatoid Arthritis and Risk of Experiencing Heart Attack Found
According to a new study out of Sweden, there is an alarming link between rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the risk of experiencing a heart attack.
Marie Gunnarsson, a graduate student at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, followed patients that were newly diagnosed with RA, and compared them with people without it. For ten years, she collected data on heart attacks, heart related deaths and deaths from other causes. What she found was that before their diagnosis, RA patients did not have a higher risk of heart attack, but after their diagnosis, the heart attack risk rates rose steadily. What’s more, is that over the ten year period, the RA patients suffered nearly twice as many heart attacks and heart attack deaths as the non-patients.
