Make Small Changes in Your Diet to Dramatically Improve Your Health ...
How important is your diet to your overall health? A recent study suggests that a healthy diet can add as many as 14 years to your life. This mindset is largely ignored by most people. The good news is that even small changes can make a big difference, though. And kids are one of the most important groups of people who should be making changes! Parents have a responsibility to not short-change their children's current and future health.
Exercise Could Be The Heart's Fountain Of Youth...
Absence may make the heart grow fonder, but endurance exercise seems to make it younger. According to a study conducted at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, older people who did endurance exercise training for about a year ended up with metabolically much younger hearts. The researchers also showed that by one metabolic measure, women benefited more than men from the training.
High omega-3 diet of Japanese linked with significantly lower heart disease risk compared to Americans...
"The death rate from coronary heart disease in Japan has always been puzzlingly low," Dr Sekikawa observed. "Our study suggests that the very low rates of coronary heart disease among Japanese living in Japan may be due to their lifelong high consumption of fish. Our study clearly demonstrated that whites and Japanese-Americans have similar levels of atherosclerosis, which are much higher than in the Japanese in Japan. This indicates that much lower death rates from coronary heart disease in the Japanese in Japan is very unlikely due to genetic factors." "Our study suggests that very high levels of omega-3 fatty acids have strong properties that may help prevent the buildup of cholesterol in the arteries," Dr Sekikawa stated. "Increasing fish intake to two times a week for healthy people is currently recommended in the U.S. Our study shows much higher intake of fish observed in the Japanese [approximately 3 ounces daily] may have strong anti-atherogenic effect."
Vitamin D May Protect Against Peripheral Artery Disease...
People with low vitamin D levels may face an increased risk for peripheral artery disease (PAD), according to researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University.
People obtain vitamin D by making it themselves (through skin exposure to sunlight), by ingesting foods such as fish and fortified dairy products that contain vitamin D, or by taking dietary supplements. Adequate vitamin D levels are necessary for bone health, but scientists are only beginning to explore vitamin D's connection to cardiovascular disease.
A Magnesium Defficiency Increases Cancer Risk Significantly ...
There is a power and a force in magnesium that cannot be equaled anywhere else in the world of medicine. There is no substitute for magnesium in human physiology; nothing comes even close to it in terms of its effect on overall cell physiology. Without sufficient magnesium, the body accumulates toxins and acid residues, degenerates rapidly, and ages prematurely. It goes against a gale wind of medical science to ignore magnesium chloride used transdermally in the treatment of any chronic or acute disorder, especially cancer.
Grape seed extract may prevent Alzheimer's: study...
A polyphenol-rich extract from grape seed may prevent the build up of plaques in the brain that may cause Alzheimer's disease, according to a study from Mount Sinai/UCLA.
Using Tg2576 mice, which also experience build up of the beta-amyloid proteins and are thus used to model human Alzheimer's disease, the researchers found that oral administration of the grape seed extract led to a significant reduction in the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer's disease, in addition to a decrease in the amount of beta-amyloid proteins in the brains of the animals, report the researchers, led by Dr. Giulio Pasinetti at Mount Sinai School of Medicine."Our study suggests that grape seed-derived polyphenolics may be useful agents to prevent or treat AD," wrote the researchers.
Can Sugar Substitutes Make You Fat?...
When it comes to dieting, most of us are willing to resort to a trick or two to help us curb our appetite and eat less — drinking water to fill up when we're hungry, for example, or opting for artificial sweeteners instead of sugar to get the same satisfying sweetness without the offending calories. But new research suggests that the body is not so easily fooled, and that sugar substitutes are no key to weight loss — perhaps helping to explain why, despite a plethora of low-calorie food and drink, Americans are heavier than ever.
4 Ways to Add 7 Years to Your Life...
Independent research sponsored by several different organizations shows that owning a pet can add up to 7 years to your life. This is because pets provide companionship and help reduce stress levels, which in turn decreases the chances of suffering a heart attack or stroke. Dog owners are also more likely to get daily exercise, an important factor in staying fit and fighting several weight-related diseases. Finally, pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression. Owning a pet forces you to get out of bed every day, even if you don't feel like it. The feelings of unconditional love and companionship are also intrinsically related to counteracting depression.
