More equality between partners equals more exercise
The Wall Street Journal
Men and women who see themselves as equal partners in a relationship are more likely to participate in frequent recreational exercise compared with those in less egalitarian unions, a study in PLOS One suggests. Greater gender equality was associated with increased physical activity in both sexes, the research showed. Interestingly, women appeared to benefit more exercise-wise from gender equality than men, researchers said.

DIET & NUTRITION


Does one diet really burn more fat?
CBS News
When it comes to slimming down, a diet low in fat seems to beat a diet low in carbohydrates for body fat loss, new research suggests. The finding stems from a small U.S. National Institutes of Health investigation that tracked each approach to weight loss among 19 obese adults. "These results counter the claims of the popular theory that has been influencing many people to adopt low-carb diets," said study lead author Kevin Hall, a senior investigator with the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases in Bethesda, Maryland.

Scientists say the original paleo diet had a large dose of carbs
Forbes
It’s weirdly ironic that the paleo diet is one of the great nutritional fads of the moment, embraced most notably by Jeb Bush. Because fads come and go, but the actual Paleolithic period started about 3 million years ago and ended about 10,000 years ago. And a lot happened in that time, most notably the emergence of us.

Study: Southern diet leads to higher risk for heart disease
By Lynn Hetzler
Published in the journal Circulation, a new study investigates the relationship between a Southern diet — often including copious amounts of fried foods, sugar-sweetened beverages, eggs, processed meat, liver and other organ meats — and the risk for coronary heart disease. The researchers found that participants who ate foods predominately from the Southern diet had a 56 percent higher risk for CHD than did those who consumed these foods less often.

Study: Your choice of sleep position may affect your brain
By Dorothy L. Tengler
We all have our favorite sleeping positions — back, side, stomach — but a new study shows our sleeping position may have more benefits than just comfort. Researchers at Stony Brook University believe sleeping on one's side — the most common position in humans and many animals — may more effectively remove brain waste and help reduce the chances of developing neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

'Exercise hormone' irisin really does exist
LiveScience via Fox News
The "exercise hormone" irisin has generated controversy among scientists — some say it's produced when humans work up a sweat, and holds promise as a weight-loss treatment, but others contend that irisin doesn't even really exist in people. Now, one research team says it has proven the existence of irisin in humans once and for all, using a technique that is more precise than those used in the past to identify the protein.
