How exercise could erode teeth
The Atlantic
Though we treat our teeth separately from our bodies, and keep dentistry and medicine in their distinct spheres, as my colleague Olga Khazan pointed out, it turns out that teeth are part of our bodies. And as such, you could almost say it makes a certain kind of sense that other things we do to our bodies affect our teeth, too.

The soda industry's promises mean nothing
TIME
The recent pledge by Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, and the Dr Pepper Snapple Group to reduce calories that Americans consumed from their products by 20 percent by 2025 elicited torrents of praise from the Global Clinton Initiative, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the national press. Nevertheless, the announcement caused many of us in the public health advocacy community to roll our eyes. Once again, soda companies are making promises that are likely to be fulfilled anyway, whether the companies take any action or not.

Promoting the positive effects of nutrition on health
Medical Xpress
Eating nutritious food is a key factor in healthy living, and in order to make informed choices, consumers need information on what they buy. Until now, the focus here has very much been on warning consumers about the negative impact of, say, too much fat, sugar and salt in their diet, while less emphasis has been placed on promoting the functional properties of various nutrients. Food companies have therefore found it difficult to assert positive health claims for their products.

Exercise as a prescription for depression: Here's how it works
Los Angeles Times
We all know that lacing up and breaking a sweat is good for our mood, and that exercise can feel like a lifeline when the stresses of life threaten to engulf us. But how a pounding workout helps lift us from the encroaching gloom was a mystery — until now. Using mice that were stressed to the point where depression would be a predictable response, researchers at Sweden's Karolinska Institute in Stockholm uncovered a cascade of biochemical events that begins with exercise and ends with mice that are unusually resilient in the face of stress.

An hour of after-school exercise linked to better cognitive functioning
Medical News Today
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommend that children and adolescents aged 6-17 years engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day. But last year, a survey of high school students found that only 29 percent had met this recommendation within the last seven days. Studies have shown that regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence can have numerous benefits for immediate and later-life health. It can help build healthy bones and muscles, help control weight and even improve cholesterol levels and blood pressure.
