Exercise is a huge protector for your heart — Aim for 150 minutes a week
The Washington Post
Regular exercise and good nutrition are essential for overall health and wellness. We know that. But can exercise alone promote heart health? The short answer is: Yes, exercise promotes heart health both in direct ways — it strengthens the heart and allows it to work more efficiently — and in indirect ones — it helps lower inflammation in the arteries and helps reduce body weight and blood pressure, says Gordon Tomaselli, chief of cardiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

The New York Times
Most of us know that moderate exercise is good for us. But surprisingly few of us know what moderate exercise means, research shows.

DIET & NUTRITION


Should you become a gluten-free eater?
Competitor
Many athletes are going gluten-free, even if they don't have a gluten sensitivity. Why? Not that long ago, most people didn't have a clue what gluten-free meant. Unless you suffered from celiac disease, chances are you were eating ample amounts of gluten and didn't even know it. Today, however, a gluten-free diet is so mainstreamed even Godfather's Pizza got onboard.

What you need to know about diet soda and weight loss
Health.com via ABC News
You probably heard about a new study published in the journal Obesity, which says diet drinks can help people lose more weight than drinking plain water. But you've probably also read time and time again that diet soda drinkers are more likely to be obese. One report found that two-can-a-day diet drinkers had a 54 percent chance of becoming overweight or obese, compared to 32 percent for those who drank the same amount of regular soda.

HealthDay News via WebMD
Diets rich in protein appear to reduce a person's risk of stroke, particularly if it's a lean animal protein like fish, a new analysis suggests. People with the highest amounts of animal protein in their diets were 20 percent less likely to suffer a stroke, compared with those who ate little to no protein, said study author Xinfeng Liu, of Nanjing University School of Medicine in Nanjing, China.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Nutritionist offers advice on vitamins, dietary supplements
Medical Xpress
"Supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration like other drugs are regulated, which is something I think a lot of people don't realize," said Brian Lindshield, assistant professor of human nutrition. Lindshield researches supplements to see if the ingredients listed on the label actually match what is found in the bottle. His recent research found that prostate supplements, which may reduce the risk of prostate cancer, are usually true to the label.
