Why high-impact exercise is good for your bones
The New York Times
Bones should be jarred, for their own good. Past experiments have definitively established that subjecting bones to abrupt stress prompts them to add mass or at least reduces their loss of mass as people age.
Positive memories of exercise spur future workouts
Getting motivated to exercise can be a challenge, but new research from the University of New Hampshire shows that simply remembering a positive memory about exercise may be just what it takes to get on the treadmill. This is the first study to explore how positive memories can influence future workouts.

Vigorous exercise tied to reduced flu risk
Medical News Today
A report on a U.K. survey suggests that vigorous exercise may help reduce the risk of catching the flu. The survey finds no such link with moderate exercise. However, the report authors stress the results are preliminary and should be treated with caution. The findings come from the U.K. Flusurvey, in which more than 4,800 people have so far taken part this year.
Golden rules of exercise and eating
People who exercise regularly need to eat enough — and enough of the right foods — if they want to reap the most reward from all their hard work. Not only will having the right nutrition fuel your body for your workouts, but it will also help your body endure the stress of exercise, help with muscle repair and lead to better performance overall.
How to diet like a man and lose more weight
Health.com via Fox News
You've been sweating away on the elliptical for months and obsessing over your diet (kale again?), and the scale is at a standstill. Meanwhile, your husband announces his desire to get in shape. He swears off beer and voilà — two weeks later, his spare tire is gone. What gives?
How to spot a fad diet: Nutrition specialists demystify what it means to eat clean
Fad diets have a seductive allure. With promises to "personalize your nutrition" or "achieve your best shape", they offer a solid set of rules that can make men and women feel like they're on a fast-track to fitness. Fad diets also change from year to year, giving the illusion of progress. A fad diet can be loosely described as any weight loss plan that gains quick — and often temporary — popularity.
Helpful nutrition resources
The Huffington Post
The American diet is by no means a standard to live by at present. How do you know what diet is the best? That's a tough question to answer because each person is different. In an era of food allergies and intolerances, it's hard for dietitians to say follow one plan or follow one routine. Whether you are looking to change up your patterns, try something new or your clinical status dictates a change, these books are a good start to moving in a healthier direction.
VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS
Should you take supplements?
Recent news and research about vitamins and supplements can be confusing: One recent study, for example, said low levels of vitamin D may damage the brain, and higher levels of D have been linked a reduced risk of certain cancers. Yet a new research review found little health benefit from taking vitamin D supplements.
New source of vitamin B-12 discovered in the ocean
Just like humans, organisms that live in the oceans need vitamins to stay healthy, but the sources of these underwater vitamins are not always easy for scientists to identify. Researchers have now shown that B-12 vitamins in the ocean are produced by archaea, a group of single-celled organisms, not only by marine bacteria, as was previously thought.
Studies question fatty acids' heart benefits
Many health organizations, including the American Heart Association, recommend eating polyunsaturated fatty acids — particularly those called omega-3s and omega-6s — for heart health. But new research once again casts doubt on whether these fatty acids have any effect on reducing your risk of heart disease.
Cheers! Turns out beer may be good for you
The Boston Globe
Move over red wine. The buzz on beer is that it can provide some nutrition as well as health advantages. "While red wine enjoys a reputation for sophistication and health benefits, emerging research reveals that beer has unique nutritional and health benefits," claims registered dietitian and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics media spokeswoman Andrea Giancoli.
Can chocolate in a pill boost heart health?
For the last decade or so, we've heard about the alleged health benefits of eating dark chocolate, including lower blood pressure and improved cholesterol levels. Those claims are about to be put to an exhaustive test in a study of 18,000 adults in Boston and Seattle. But instead of eating chocolate bars every day, the study participants will take capsules containing concentrated amounts of the bio-active chemicals in cocoa beans, known as cocoa flavanols.
75 percent of people have the flu without any symptoms
Counsel & Heal
The flu could be infecting more people than the numbers reveal. According to a new study, over the past few years, around three-quarters of people were infected with the seasonal flu and the swine flu but did not exhibit any kinds of symptoms or had mild symptoms that did not require medical attention.
"Whooping cough is very contagious and can cause serious illness in infants, children and adults, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."
