“News Beats” is a compendium of the latest stories about cardiovascular health, disease, and treatments. Every day I search the major media outlets —from CNN to the BBC to CBS to the Houston Chronicle— for the best stories. For example, recent headlines have included “sitting for too long is bad for you,” “Americans’ lower cholesterol levels isn’t all good news,” “the deadly threat of silent heart attacks,” and “antioxidant-rich foods can lower heart attack risks for women.” The News Beats website is updated regularly. I post print copies of the stories on a bulletin board in the Learning Resource Center (by the way, we now have a bigger board—check it out).
