New Discovery Opens the Door to Possible Cure for Heart Disease

Dr. Larry Weisenthal

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., July 21, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Larry Weisenthal, M.D., Ph.D., today announced new findings that unravel mysteries about the root cause of atherosclerosis – the narrowing of blood vessels that leads to heart attack and stroke. It is a big step toward developing drugs, possibly in the very near future, that prevent the most common forms of heart disease.

Larry Weisenthal, M.D., Ph.D., is a physician and researcher. He has discovered a previously unknown biological mechanism that accounts for vascular calcification – hardening of the arteries. Dr. Weisenthal has named the new mechanism MCED (pronounced EM-sed). It stands for Massively Calcified Endosome Death. By targeting MCED with new drugs, he feels it should be possible to stop vascular calcification from occurring, even among individuals with high cholesterol.

“Cholesterol levels probably won’t matter,” says Dr. Weisenthal, “at the end of the day the most important cause of arterial blockage may be the presence or absence of circulating MCED factors.”

According to the report, Dr. Weisenthal has discovered that, under some circumstances, artery-forming cells, called endothelial cells, die in a special way that involves release of highly calcified micro-particles. These escape from dying endothelial cells and trigger the body’s normal immune response. This causes inflammation within the blood vessel and narrows the opening through which blood flows.

Scientists understand that arteries do not literally become clogged with fat, like sludge in an old sewer pipe. Instead, the wall of the artery undergoes an apparent thickening as part of an inflammatory process. But what causes the inflammation to occur? That is exactly the mystery Dr. Weisenthal has unraveled. He contends that MCED is the cause of arterial inflammation.

Until now, no theory fully explained the perplexing mysteries of heart disease. Why do some people who eat all the “wrong” foods live long, healthy lives while other people whose diets appear ideal have heart problems? Why do some people with sky-high cholesterol counts have squeaky-clean arteries while other people, with “good” cholesterol levels, suffer narrowing of the arteries, heart attack, and stroke? Clearly, cholesterol seems to be a factor but, just as clearly, it is not the most important factor.

According to Dr. Weisenthal, MCED explains everything.

Dr. Weisenthal’s laboratory experiments have shown that certain chemicals such as cholesterol can indeed cause MCED to occur – but not in everyone. Dr. Weisenthal has shown that blood drawn from different persons varies widely in the ability to prevent MCED from occurring. He says this probably is due to substances – called factors – that are contained in the blood.

Dr. Weisenthal believes it will be possible to isolate MCED-inhibiting factors in the blood and then develop drugs that mimic them. Conceivably, persons at risk for atherosclerosis could be identified through a simple blood test. Such persons would then receive a daily pill to inhibit MCED and prevent the narrowing of arteries.

“That’s the importance of this work,” says Dr. Weisenthal, “It answers the most important questions relating to the genesis of atherosclerosis and identifies the target for specific drugs to prevent and treat it.”

Importantly, only endothelial cells are subject to this particular form of cell death. No other cell Dr. Weisenthal has tested can be made to die in exactly this way. This is additional, strong support for his theory.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., June 26, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — “A coupon is something a consumer presents to a restaurant, store or service business for a discount,” says Seth Schiller, CEO of Scan Code Saver. “Companies like Groupon and Living Social don’t distribute coupons. They sell on-line discounted certificates. There’s a big difference. I believe business owners are getting tired of giving away all the profit in those deals just to get a one-time customer. Statistics show that most consumers who purchase discount certificates buy once and usually don’t buy again. Bad business, if you ask me!” Seth exclaims.

Using Scan Code Saver branded mobile websites and local classified networks; consumers are the ones in charge. Offers appear on their mobile phones immediately after they scan one of our branded QR (quick response) codes; redeemable any time, without compromising their time, privacy or the safety of their mobile phone.

ISLA Hosts Fundraiser in Long Beach to Benefit Lifeguard Training Initiatives in Dominican Republic and Nicaragua

International Surf Lifesaving AssociationHUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., March 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — On Wed., March 14 and Thurs., March 15, 2012, International Surf Lifesaving Association (ISLA) will be hosting a special fundraiser at the Original Roadhouse Grill in Long Beach, located at 7391 Carson St. The purpose of the fundraiser is to raise critical funds and awareness for ISLA’s training initiatives in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua later this month.

Founded in 2008, ISLA’s mission is to reduce the number of drownings worldwide by building a culture of water safety. Comprised of volunteer lifeguards, the organization provides training, medical supplies, disaster relief, and emergency personnel to beach communities around the world.

In November 2011, ISLA traveled to the Dominican Republic to train volunteers from various agencies within the country in lifesaving and lifeguarding techniques. As part of the initiative, ISLA conducted an intensive three-day Ocean Lifeguarding Training, which included a First Aid and CPR practical exam, physical instruction, written test, and non-buoy and buoy rescue practical exam. Twenty-nine lifeguard trainees completed the rigorous training course and received Basic ISLA Lifeguard Certification, the first professional lifeguard certification in the Dominican Republic now required for a lifeguard to become certified.

Two ISLA volunteer lifeguards will return to the Dominican Republic in late March to continue the second phase and to begin the third phase of its initiative to create permanent lifeguard agencies that guard the public and private beaches of the country.

In late March, fourteen ISLA volunteer will also conduct the first phase of its Ocean Lifeguarding Training in Nicaragua.

Thanks to local hotels and other agencies, courses and accommodations are provided to participants and ISLA instructors at no cost.

“We are excited to promote a sustainable culture of water safety in both Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic with our Ocean Lifeguard Training,” said ISLA President Henry Reyes. “We look forward to serving both communities and are confident that these courses will have a positive impact.”

To learn more about ISLA’s upcoming fundraiser at the Original Roadhouse Grill, please visit its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ISLAsurf . Supporters will be able to download a special flyer to donate 20 percent of their bill to ISLA.

Newest Addition Added to Bonne Foi Anti-Aging Line is Lab Tested and Manufactured in Southern California

Bonne Foi BeautyHUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Feb. 22, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Bonne Foi Beauty Products, an anti-aging skin care line, today, releases its Nourishing Face Cream which will further enhance the Bonne Foi line.

Created primarily for night time use, the Nourishing Face Cream will nourish, rejuvenate and moisturize your face, firming your skin and improving its overall appearance. Those with particularly dry skin or those who live in very cold climates may wish to use it as a day cream as well.

Its main ingredients include white shea butter, beeswax and seaweed extract. In clinical trials, shea butter was found to moisturize the outer layer of skin, protect against climate and UV aggressions, and prevent wrinkle formations. The seaweed extract, found in many of our products, is what helps firm skin, restore elasticity, and improves the complexion providing a more youthful skin tone.

Bonne Foi’s Nourishing Face Cream does not contain any petroleum by-products or mineral oil as these ingredients can clog pores, suffocate skin, and cause premature aging.

The chemist that formulated the Nourishing Face Cream had been developing anti-aging products for more than a decade when he began developing the Bonne Foi line of products. The formula is based on the theory developed by Dr. Peter Agre, who won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2003 for his ground-breaking discovery of aquaporins which is used in the Bonne Foi product line. Aquaporins allow anti-aging and nourishing ingredients to penetrate skin down to the cell level.

Bonne Foi anti-aging skin care products are specially formulated to work for people of all ethnicities and on a wide variety of skin types and tones. This Nourishing Face Cream completes our night-time skin care regimen.
