LiveScience via Fox News
Falling down and getting hurt is a big problem for older adults, and researchers think that physical activity may lower people's risk of falls. But now, a new study suggests that the only type of exercise that lowers older adults' risk of falls is swimming. Researchers in Australia looked at about 1,700 men ages 70 and older, and compared the types of exercise the men did with their likelihood of experiencing a fall over a four-year period.

What's your fitness age?
The New York Times
You already know your chronological age, but do you know your fitness age?

DIET & NUTRITION


Why experts now think you should eat more fat
Men's Journal
For more than half a century, the conventional wisdom among nutritionists and public health officials was that fat is dietary enemy No. 1 — the leading cause of obesity and heart disease. It appears the wisdom was off. And not just off. Almost entirely backward.

Train your brain to prefer healthy foods
Medical Xpress
"I can resist anything except temptation." Anyone who has ever been on a diet can relate to that quip from Oscar Wilde. No matter what the fad diet du jour says, the only way to lose weight is to reduce the net number of calories consumed. It's a simple equation, but a hard way to live. Or is it?

Think you're eating healthy? You're probably not
The Boston Globe
Rona Kobell writes: We’re lingering over breakfast at the Kendall Hotel when we notice a man watching us. He looks distinguished, not creepy, so we get back to our food. My tablemates finish their meals — plates of fruit and bowls of oatmeal. I dig into some scrambled eggs with a side of melon half-moons. We are journalists from Kansas City, Chicago, London, Toronto, Baltimore, and New York, and we’re in Cambridge for MIT’s annual Food Boot Camp, part of the school’s Knight Science Journalism programs.

Q by Equinox via Yahoo Health
When your body is trying to tell you something — for example, that you’re skimping on critical vitamins — it may go to some strange lengths. “With today’s diet of processed foods it’s easy to become vitamin deficient — either by not eating enough of the right foods or not absorbing them properly due to digestive issues,” says Dr. Susan Blum, founder of the Blum Center for Health and author of the new book, The Immune System Recovery Plan.
