Dutch researchers conducted MRI exams of 12 patients with diabetes before and after they did six months of moderate-intensity exercise. Each week, the participants, who were an average age of 46, exercised between three and a half and six hours a week during two endurance and two resistance training sessions.

DIET & NUTRITION


Talking to teens about weight loss tied to unhealthy dieting, laxative use
Reuters via Fox News
Teens were more likely to diet and use other unhealthy measures to control their weight when their parents talked to them about losing weight or the importance of being thin, in a new study. Conversely, family conversations about healthy eating that did not involve the topic of weight were linked to fewer unhealthy behaviors, such as laxative use and skipping meals — especially among heavier adolescents.

"We found that apple-shaped persons — even if totally healthy and with a normal blood pressure — have an elevated blood pressure in their kidneys," said researcher Dr. Arjan Kwakernaak. "When they are also overweight or obese, this is even worse."

U.S. News & World Report

When parents hustle from work, to day care, to soccer practice and dance class, a five-minute drive through McDonald's is more feasible than finding a precious hour to cook a meal. Perhaps it's one reason why more people have turned to dietary supplements to fill their daily need for iron, fiber and vitamins A, B, C and D.
