New fitness site is an exercise in diversity
USA Today
Walk into an exercise class or turn on a workout video and odds are you’ll see a familiar sight: An instructor who’s young, super-energetic, ultra-thin and white. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. But for some people, it’s hard to feel as if they belong in an exercise class when the instructor looks nothing like them.

Can digital fitness trackers get you moving?
Harvard Health Blog
Heidi Godman writes: I’m a little obsessed with the pedometer in my smartphone. It’s fun to carry it with me and see how many steps I take when exercising or grocery shopping or carrying laundry across my house. I aim for 10,000 steps per day, but I don’t always hit the mark, and I’ve wondered if switching to a digital fitness tracker would push me to go the extra mile. So a small study published in the September American Journal of Preventive Medicine caught my attention.

DIET & NUTRITION


Sugar spell: Breaking away from your sweet tooth's hold
By Natalie Rodriguez
It was a gray day in America earlier this year when the World Health Organization recommended adults and children reduce their daily intake of sugar to less than 10 percent of their total energy intake. In English, that's roughly 25 grams of sugar per day. America's sweet tooth wept in agony, not just from the cavities. The average American consumes 110 grams of sugar daily — a disconcerting 85 grams higher than the WHO's recommended amount.

CDC: Your heart is probably much older than you think
Los Angeles Times
You may feel young at heart, but with apologies to Frank Sinatra, that’s probably a fairy tale. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the average American man has a heart that’s 7.8 years “older” than his chronological age; for women, the comparable “heart age” is 5.4 years higher than her calendar age.

Sports specialization worries medical experts
By Bob Kowalski
Playing only one sport throughout the year can bring a level of expertise, but when it comes to youth sports, this specialization can also bring injury. Young athletes are increasingly suffering sports injuries that can be attributed to overuse. Some medical experts consider these injuries preventable, but the solution is not clear. Should young athletes avoid focusing on one sport and play multiple sports? Parents, coaches and athletes appear to be divided on the topic.

NIH study: Supplements don't fight cognitive decline
The New York Times
Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants are often marketed to promote brain health. But one study to test these supplements has found no evidence that the pills stave off cognitive decline in older people. The study, conducted by the National Institutes of Health, randomly assigned participants to take a lutein/zeaxanthin supplement, a supplement of omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids with docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid, both or a placebo.
