    Men and women who replaced 3% of their protein intake from eggs with plant protein were 19% less likely to die during a 26-32 year follow-up according to data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study.

    To say this the other way, replacing 3% of plant protein intake with egg protein was associated with a 23% greater risk of death during follow-up.

    DIETARY FIBER

    Men and women consuming them most fiber, 26-29 grams per day, were 22% less likely to die over 9 yrs

    The one-fifth of men and women consuming the most dietary fiber—29 grams per day for men and 26 grams per day for women—compared to the one-fifth consuming the least (11-13 grams per day) were 22% less likely to die during an average follow-up of 9 years according to the a study from researchers at the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

    Of interest was that men and women consuming the most fiber were 56-59% less likely to die from infectious diseases compared to people consuming the least.

    PCSK9 INHIBITORS

    5% more people given PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab (Repatha) died from cardiovascular causes

    5% more people given the PCSK9 inhibitor evolocumab (Repatha) to lower cholesterol levels died from cardiovascular causes during an average follow-up of 2.2 years than those given a placebo according to the FOURIER trial.

    251 people (out of 13,784) given evolocumab died compared to 240 people (out of 13,780) given a placebo.

    So they want me to take a drug that you have to inject that costs $14,000 per year that increases my chance of dying?

    No, thank you.

    POTASSIUM

    Women consuming less than 1925 mg potassium per day 14% more likely to die than those consuming more

    The one-fourth of women consuming the least amount of potassium—less than 1925 mg per day—were 14% more likely to die than women consuming more potassium than this after adjusting for multiple risk factors according to the 2014 Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study.

    The risk of death was similar in each quarter of women consuming more potassium than this.

    The second quarter of women who consumed 1925 to 2519 mg of potassium per day were 9% less likely to die during the 11 year follow-up than the one-quarter of women consuming the least potassium (less than 1925 mg per day).

    The third quarter of women who consumed 2519 to 3194 mg of potassium per day were 16% less likely to die during the 11 year follow-up than the one-quarter of women consuming the least potassium (less than 1925 mg per day).

    The quarter of women who consumed the most potassium—more than 3194 mg of potassium per day—were 10% less likely to die during the 11 year follow-up than the one-quarter of women consuming the least potassium (less than 1925 mg per day).

    The Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study (WHI-OS), the largest prospective cohort study of postmenopausal women with long-term follow-up, was used to assess whether higher dietary potassium consumption is associated with reduced risk of total, ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, and all-cause mortality.

    Women with normal blood pressure consuming the least amount of potassium—less than 1925 mg per day— were 32% more likely to have a stroke than women with normal blood pressure consuming more potassium than this after adjusting for multiple risk factors according to the 2014 Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study.

    The risk of stroke in women with normal blood pressure was similar in each quarter of women consuming more potassium than this.

    The second quarter of women with normal blood pressure who consumed 1925 to 2519 mg of potassium per day were 25% less likely to have a stroke during the 11 year follow-up than the one-quarter of women with normal blood pressure consuming the least potassium (less than 1925 mg per day).

    VIAGRA

    Use of Viagra-type drugs associated with 31% lower risk of death over 7.5 years

    Men with Type 2 diabetes who were prescribed Viagra-type drugs for improving erections were 31% less likely to die than men of the same age who were not prescribed these drugs during an average follow-up of 7.5 years according to a recent study.

    The risk of dying was 46% less after adjusting for age, kidney function, smoking status, prior stroke, hypertension, prior myocardial infarction, systolic blood pressure, use of statin, metformin, aspirin and β-blocker medication,

    The study looked at the use of phosphodiesterase type-5 inhibitors which include sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), vardenafil (Levitra) and avanafil (Stendra).

    MILK

    Women drinking 3 glasses of milk per day and one serving of veggies were 2.8X more likely to die

    Women with a high milk consumption who consumed 3 or more glasses of milk per day and less than one serving of fruits and vegetables were 2.8 times more likely to die over some number of years compared to women with a low milk consumption who consumed less than one glass of milk per day according to a study that analyzed data from food frequency questionnaires completed by 61,420 women in a Swedish cohort (1987–1990 baseline) and 36,714 women from a second survey (1997).

    “Dietary antioxidant intake [from fruits and vegetables], especially in women, seems to modify the elevated death rate associated with high milk consumption,” the authors of the study concluded.

    Men with low HDL levels of 30 mg/dl or below were 81% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease

    Men with low HDL cholesterol levels of 30 mg/dl or less were 81% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease during an average follow-up of 4.9 years than men with HDL levels of 41-50 mg/dl according to a 2016 study from Canada.

    The study found that HDL levels that were either too high (>90 mg/dl) or too low (≤30 mg/dl) were associated with an increased risk of death when compared to men with more moderate HDL levels (41-80 mg/dl).
