New evidence on how weight, diet and exercise can help reduce cancer risk
The Washington Post
Cutting your risk of cancer is no longer just about shunning tobacco. Be lean. Eat healthfully. Get active. Common-sense lifestyle strategies for lowering the risk of heart disease and diabetes are now being shown to help prevent many types of cancer. Of course, there are few absolutes in cancer prevention. Cancer is still a riddle, with many factors, including genetics, playing a role. But growing evidence suggests that there are steps that we can take to lower our chances of getting the disease, experts say.

Hormone released after exercise can 'predict' biological age
Medical Xpress
Scientists from Aston University have discovered a potential molecular link between Irisin, a recently identified hormone released from muscle after bouts of exercise, and the ageing process. Irisin, which is naturally present in humans, is capable of reprogramming the body's fat cells to burn energy instead of storing it. This increases the metabolic rate and is thought to have potential anti-obesity effects which in turn could help with conditions such as Type 2 diabetes.

Scientists: Your diet may not fit your genes
Fox News
You are what you eat, and what you eat could be making you age prematurely; in fact, it may even be killing you. And it's not all about 64-ounce cups of sugary soda pop. It may just be that those skinny jeans don't fit your genes. Your diet can trigger genetic effects that cause you to age more rapidly, according to a recently completed study at the University of Southern California Davis.

New sports supplement 'Frenzy' draws concern, questions
USA Today
The company that recently destroyed tubs of its popular sports supplement Craze — which scientists found was secretly spiked with a methamphetamine-like compound — is coming back to the market with a replacement product. It's called Frenzy, and users who have sampled it say it's an even more powerful stimulant than its predecessor and they rave about the kind of "rage" and "aggression" it produces during workouts.

Is the money spent each year on supplements creating benefits?
By Cynthia Sheppard Solomon
During 2003-2006, 39 percent of U.S. adults used multivitamin supplements, and 53 percent used dietary supplements — a substantial increase from the past. The U.S. supplement industry reached $28 billion in 2010. Is the money being spent wisely — to benefit health? A recent study in the Annals of Internal Medicine suggests not. There is actually significant evidence to advise against routine supplementation. Most supplements do not prevent chronic disease or death, and their use is not justified based on the research.

Sleep: The most important part of the day
By Jeff White
We live in a fast-paced society. Everything needs to be done now, and there's always more we have to do. Multitasking is now the norm, and it's even more hectic when kids are added to the mix.
