One in Four U.S. Adults Will Have Abnormal Heart Rhythms

About one in four adults in the United States who are 40 years of age or older will experience an abnormal heart rhythm, also referred to as atrial fibrillation (AF), during their lifetimes. The study was able to capture AF patients without symptoms, along with those with symptomatic disease. The authors noted that some asymptomatic cases of AF will probably never be become serious enough to require medical attention, yet patients with one AF event are at risk for having more and paroxysmal AF can increase the risk for stroke. One simple solution for this condition would be to make certain you are eating enough high-quality omega-3 fats, as these are clearly helpful in normalizing heart arrhythmias.
