FITNESS & WELLNESS


Running of any length or speed reduces risk of death
USA Today
Whether you run 30 minutes a week or two hours a week, your risk of early death will be the same — better than if you don't run. Researchers found that running, no matter the duration or speed, will reduce mortality risk by about 30 percent compared with non-runners. Contrary to the 150 minutes of moderate exercise or the 75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that people who run less than hour a week have the same health benefits as people who run more, regardless of sex, age, body mass index, health conditions or smoking status.

How our arms help us run
The New York Times
How we hold our arms affects how we run, but probably not in ways that most of us would expect, according to a new study of upper body biomechanics. The ideal arm swing may be the one that you’re already using, the study concludes. Distance running is, of course, physiologically costly, meaning that it requires large outlays of energy.

Are you gonna eat that? Why disease-proofing your diet is so hard
Bloomberg
A company that supplies meat to McDonald’s restaurants in China recalled its beef, chicken and pork after accusations that it was repackaging old meat as new.

Processed foods: Where do we go from here?
MedPage Today
This is an interesting, and challenging, topic. For one thing, of course processed foods contribute importantly to nutrient intake — partly because the typical American diet is overwhelmingly made up of processed foods, many of which are highly fortified. Only 1.5 percent of Americans meet daily recommendations for both vegetables and fruits, so the importance of processed foods to the nutrients we are getting says nothing about where we could, or should be getting those nutrients.

Study suggests healthy diet, sleep and exercise can mitigate negative impacts of stress
News-Medical.net
A new study from UC San Francisco is the first to show that while the impact of life's stressors accumulate overtime and accelerate cellular aging, these negative effects may be reduced by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising and sleeping well. "The study participants who exercised, slept well and ate well had less telomere shortening than the ones who didn't maintain healthy lifestyles, even when they had similar levels of stress," said lead author Eli Puterman, Ph.D., assistant professor in the department of psychiatry at UCSF.
