Men With Erectile Dysfunction At Raised Risk Of Heart Disease - IN60

From Hong Kong – According to research published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology, men with erectile dysfunction are at significantly higher risk for developing heart disease. Researchers followed over 2,300 patients with type 2 diabetes and noted that those with ED were twice as likely to develop coronary artery disease. Given that ED may predict future heart disease, its documentation should be included in the assessment of cardiovascular risk.

From Rome – According to research published in the Lancet Oncology, testing thyroid nodules for the presence of galectin-3, a protein that is involved in inhibiting cell replication, may reduce the number of unnecessary surgeries for potential thyroid cancer. In a study of over 400 thyroid nodules that were potentially cancerous, researchers noted that if the lesion expressed the protein the likelihood of cancer was over 80%, and in its absence, it was less than 10%.

And finally from Toronto – Drinking caffeinated coffee an hour before eating breakfast cereal can affect the body's blood-sugar response. In a study of 10 healthy men, those that drank caffeinated coffee before or while eating low-sugar cereal saw their blood glucose levels spike by 250% compared with decaf coffee. The researchers concluded that some people may be better off eating sweeter cereal, and drinking decaf.
