Exercise: It's what we evolved to do
CNN
When it comes to healthcare, Americans disagree about much, but we do agree that our $2.7-trillion-a-year healthcare system is broken. Although fixing the system will be difficult, there is one inexpensive, readily available, and highly effective way to prevent illness while drastically reducing skyrocketing healthcare costs: Let's help each other exercise more. In fact, it's what we evolved to do.

What's your 'fitness age'
The New York Times
Trying to quantify your aerobic fitness is a daunting task. It usually requires access to an exercise-physiology lab. But researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim have developed a remarkably low-tech means of precisely assessing aerobic fitness and estimating your "fitness age," or how well your body functions physically, relative to how well it should work, given your age.

Does exercising 1 muscle group impact others?
Men's Journal
If anyone tells you that he can hit the reset button between events in a triathlon, you can tell him science doesn't agree. Whether your going from a swim to a cycle or squat to curls, your performance on the second will be diminished, according to a new study from Nottingham Trent University in Britain. Physiologist Michael Johnson and his team showed that 10 minutes of high intensity arm cycling significantly reduced performance on a "leg cycling" time trial, compared to athletes who didn't arm cycle.

DIET & NUTRITION


Some nutrition and diet studies may overstate results
Reuters
Doctors, policymakers and everyday people may make decisions or give advice based on the results of published nutrition studies. But a new analysis shows researchers sometimes overstate the results of those reports. Researchers from the University of Alabama at Birmingham looked at papers published about nutrition and obesity in leading medical and public health journals. They tracked how often authors overreached in the summary of their findings.

Inflammation-linked diet associated with depression in women
The Huffington Post
Eating a diet high in foods that spur inflammation in the body — such as refined grains and soft drinks — may raise the risk for depression in women, according to a new study. The study, published in the journal Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, is based on data from 43,685 women ages 50 to 77 who did not have depression when they first entered the study in 1996, and who were followed until 2008.

10 reasons to give up diet soda
Health.com via Fox News
When taken at face value, diet soda seems like a health-conscious choice. It saves you the 140-plus calories you'd find in a sugary soft drink while still satisfying your urge for something sweet with artificial sweeteners like aspartame, saccharin and sucralose.

Herbal supplements are often not what they seem
The New York Times
Americans spend an estimated $5 billion a year on unproven herbal supplements that promise everything from fighting off colds to curbing hot flashes and boosting memory. But now there is a new reason for supplement buyers to beware: DNA tests show that many pills labeled as healing herbs are little more than powdered rice and weeds.

Employee wellness programs boost employee satisfaction and productivity
By Joy Burgess
Many companies have been turning to employee wellness programs to help reduce employee healthcare costs. In fact, statistics from the American Institute for Preventive Medicine show that 91 percent of organizations now offer some type of wellness program, a percentage that has risen substantially in the last decade. Corporate wellness programs have soared in popularity due to their ability to fight high insurance premiums and skyrocketing medical costs, but statistics also show that these programs go beyond healthcare savings.

Early puberty in girls linked to obesity ... again
Forbes
Confirming previous research, a new study reports that early onset puberty in girls is linked to overweight and obesity. This isn't totally surprising, since obesity can alter the levels of reproductive hormones, prompting the body into premature puberty. Still, the implications are important, given that overweight and obesity in children has increased markedly in recent decades — and given the number of health problems that are linked to excess body weight across a lifetime.
