Exercise, weight control reduce risk of breast cancer
USA Today
Breast cancer can be a devastating disease, but most women can take active steps to reduce their risk, say some of the nation's leading breast cancer experts. Women shouldn't blame themselves for their illness, doctors say, noting that it's usually impossible to pinpoint what caused an individual woman's breast tumor.

The slowest generation: Runners less concerned about time
The Wall Street Journal
Kevin Helliker writes: Saying I finished in the top 15 percent of my age group in last month's Chicago Triathlon is like bragging that I could outrun your grandpa. My age group was 50 to 54. But against the entire sprint-distance field, I finished in the top 11 percent. That's right: Team Geriatric outperformed the field. I'd love to report that this reflects the age-defying effects of triathlon. But my hair is gray, my hearing is dull and my per-mile pace is slower than it used to be, even at shorter distances.

Mermaid fitness class lets you live out your childhood fantasy
The Huffington Post
"The Little Mermaid" is finally being released from Disney's "vault" on Oct. 1st, and every time we turn on the TV, we're inundated with commercials reminding us how much we miss and adore the old gang: Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder and Scuttle. "The Little Mermaid" came out in theaters in 1989, which means little girls who watched it obsessively as children are now in their late twenties or early thirties, jaded by life, and looking to recapture a sliver of that redhead’s optimism, if not her waistline.

Study finds link between high-fat, high-calorie diet and pancreas cancer
Medical Xpress
Researchers at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center have found that mice made obese by high-calorie, high-fat diets develop abnormally high numbers of lesions known to be precursors to pancreas cancer. This is the first study to show a direct causative link in an animal model between obesity and risk of this deadly cancer.

Ditch the diet and just 'shift'
Fox News
Tory Johnson writes: If you've spent your life as a fat person — when you desperately don't want to be one — it's like being in prison: You want to escape, but those steel bars keep you from making a break. I know what it's like because I was always trapped by my weight, powerless to change. I failed at one fad diet after another and got to a point where I resigned myself to being plus-sized.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Why you should be cautious of taking biotin for your hair, skin and nails
The Huffington Post
While perusing the shelves at your local drugstore or natural health foods shop, you've probably stumbled across a bottle labeled "biotin." "These B complex vitamins (also known as vitamin H) are important in metabolism, helping your body to process energy and transporting carbon dioxide from your body's cells," says board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart. Lofty claims that biotin can help grow healthier and stronger hair, skin and nails has sparked a generation of pill-popping women who desire these beauty benefits. But is it doing more harm than good to their bodies?

Vitamin D and your health: It's not a 'cure all'
Live Science
Deborah Enos writes: Growing up in sunny California, I never thought much about the so-called "sunshine vitamin." I wasn't one to sit on the beach tanning, but I did play just about every outdoor sport imaginable. That's why it came as such as shock that I was deficient in this important vitamin.

Keri Glassman writes: I do like me a cold one on a hot summer day, and a fall ball game just isn't the same without an ale in my hand. Fear of the great beer belly has kept suds out of the refrigerators and hands of beer enthusiasts all over the land, but is it possible that one of America's favorite beverages have gotten an undeserved bad rap?

Men's Fitness

In fact, appropriate exercise programs can strengthen their heart and lungs, as well as improve their overall quality of life. In a recent review published in The Cochrane Library, researchers found that people with asthma responded in a similar way to exercise as those without the disease.

Small investment, guaranteed return
Slate
The future health and wealth of the country are inextricably tied. Right now, however, Americans are not as healthy as they could or should be, in large part due to the obesity epidemic. Obesity rates have more than doubled in the past 30 years. Two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are now overweight or obese. It is one of the biggest health crises the country has ever faced, and we're at a crossroads for how we deal with it and where it will take our economy.
