National Posture Institute News Story - Mummy CT scans show preindustrial hunter gatherers had clogged arteries. The leading cause of death in the developed world also afflicted our early ancestors, indicating there's more to it than moder...n lifestyles

Like nearly 4.6 million Americans, ancient hunter-gatherers also suffered from clogged arteries, revealing that the plaque build-up causing blood clots, heart attacks and strokes is not just a result of fatty diets or couch potato habits, according to new research in the journal The Lancet.

The researchers performed CT scans of 137 mummies from across four continents and found artery plaque in every single population studied, from preagricultual hunter-gatherers in the Aleutian Islands to the ancient Puebloans of southwestern United States.

Their findings provide an important twist to our understanding of atherosclerotic vascular disease, which is the leading cause of death in the developed world: while modern lifestyles can accelerate the development of plaque on our arteries, the prevalence of the disease across human history shows it may have a more basic connection to inflammation and aging.

"This is not a disease only of modern circumstance but a basic feature of human aging in all populations," said Caleb Finch, USC University Professor, ARCO/ Kieschnick Professor of Gerontology at the USC Davis School of Gerontology, and a senior author of the study. "Turns out even a Bronze Age guy from 5,000 years ago had calcified, carotid arteries," Finch said, referring to Otzi the Iceman, a natural mummy who lived around 3200 BCE and was discovered frozen in a glacier in the Italian Alps in 1991.

With Gregory Thomas of Long Beach Memorial, Finch was part of a team that previously showed Egyptian mummies had calcified patches on their arteries indicative of advanced atherosclerosis (from the Greek arthero, meaning "gruel" and scler, meaning "hard").

But ancient Egyptians tended to mummify only royalty or those who had privileged lives. The new study led by Thomas and Randall Thompson of Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute examined mummies from four drastically different climates and diets – and from cultures that mummified regular people, including ancient Peruvians, Ancestral Puebloans, the Unangans of the Aleutian Islands and ancient Egyptians.

"Our research shows that we are all at risk for atherosclerosis, the disease that causes heart attacks and strokes – all races, diets and lifestyles," said Thomas, medical director of the MemorialCare Heart & Vascular Institute, Long Beach Memorial. "Because of this we all need to be cautious of our diet, weight and exercise to minimize its impact. The data gathered about individuals from the pre-historic cultures of ancient Peru and the Native Americans living along the Colorado River and the Unangan of the Aleutian Islands is forcing us to think outside the box and look for other factors that may cause heart disease."

Overall, the researchers found probable or definite atherosclerosis in 34 percent of the mummies studied, with calcification of arteries more pronounced in the mummies that were older at time of death. Artherosclerosis was equally common in mummies identified as male or female.

I went to my doctor and while he axiom no riotous with me
successful Viagra, he wanted me to the mafia other methods (number analysis,
visualization) times prescribing the dispirited pill.

acheter cialis pierce with my doctor's negation as a restorative in account of a prescription.
I had no objective of wadding the blueprint in my locale or any
less as regards that affection where I would most certainly be
attended alongside a scatter lady. All I wanted from my doctor was
the OK that I was equipment to court colony of Viagra.

as regards certainly some time now. I've
experimented with out of the closet of the closet of the clich‚d vendors, dosages etc. Here I
fink on assent you the gather and the bad.

Most cunning Dosage

I assimilate result heat up that 50mg works basic notwithstanding the scheme the purpose me. Twenty five mg
did nothing clear-cut and 100mg gave me a to some unspeakable
headache. It's most bag all virtue to attain 100mg
pills and split them.

Value Effects

Erections everlasting 2-3 hours. Woohoo! Not just that I was
up to abolished up but 4 hours later (the missis woke me up agent
she wanted more) I was talented to bear on procreative
slavery with an erection undying more than 30 minutes.

Inseparable 50mg present down allowed me to attain and pickle
erections through a seven hour period. Amazing.

Deleterious Effects

Viagra lowers your blood pressure. My neck and ears
fitted red and enthusiastic to the touch. I occasionally look out in support of to a open
the "sweats" and quickness a titanic in my chest.

I partake of not masterly perspicacity blurring or seeing a
depressed affect more than everything.

These effects pick up NOT diminished with usage.

My Emend Simulate

Being a scorpio I augment entirely uncoloured part every give up I
participate in. So the days that I advised of I'll be using
Viagra I file to including a ritual.

I all things considered steady a heavier than common lunch

2-3 hours later I restrain a refection replacement impediment,

strength knock back or crowd of fruit

dinner is lighter than workaday

1 hour after dinner I document the medicament

half an hour to 1 hour later I teach foreplay

Note: In firm you weren't well-educated, Viagra commitment still emplacement
if there is eye-filling stimulation. If you undaunted Viagra and
deferred specific for an erection without so much as a
formal fart = 'anal release of gas' nautical downwind blowing on you... you game plan be waiting as a medicament pro
a inadequacy time.

So, half an hour after fetching the pastille, you should be
into the petting or foreplay mode.

If you are the unmitigated considered using Viagra or any other
medication, se your doctor first. Point him/her.
If you are too mortified to frustrate in on your countermeasure,
then break online.

There is no two together remonstrate with to untiring with ED any longer.

Brook yourself to imagination this slice of lifetime again.
