FITNESS & WELLNESS


Can harmful health effects of sitting be erased with exercise?
The Boston Globe
A new finding suggests that regular bouts of exercise can counteract the effects of being glued to a computer screen all day in an office cubicle. Researchers looked at the sitting habits of more than 1,300 men and found, as expected, that those who reported sitting the longest — more than 22 hours per week in front of a TV or behind the wheel of a car — were more likely to have increased blood pressure and cholesterol levels compared to those who sat fewer than nine hours a week.

Science World Report
A new study found that those who consume high-fat foods in a regular basis may lose their sense of smell.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


The amazing health benefits of chocolate
By Denise A. Valenti
Research has shown health benefits in the regular consumption of chocolate. However, it depends on the chocolate. The sugary, fat-imbibed cocoa confection most often consumed is far different than the cacao bean drink used for medicinal purposes in ancient cultures. But if the sugar is limited and the milk omitted, a dose of dark chocolate can be considered healthy. The earliest evidence of cacao consumption is estimated to be between 1400 and 1100 B.C. when Mayans and Aztecs used the beans in a drink for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.

Natural Products Insider
Interested in selling supplements into the Canadian and/or U.S. market, but don't know where to start? Supplements regulation in Canada and the United States have similarities, but the differences are significant. For starters the countries don't even call supplements the same thing — in Canada they use the term "natural health product" to encompass products such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, homeopathic medicines, traditional medicines, animal and plant extracts and probiotics.
