FITNESS & WELLNESS


Run to stay young
The New York Times
Running may reverse aging in certain ways while walking does not, a noteworthy new study of active older people finds. The findings raise interesting questions about whether most of us need to pick up the pace of our workouts in order to gain the greatest benefit. Walking is excellent exercise. No one disputes that idea. Older people who walk typically have a lower incidence of obesity, arthritis, heart disease and diabetes, and longer lifespans than people who are sedentary.

Doctors dole out prescriptions for exercise
The Wall Street Journal via Fox News
Patients are coming out of the doctor’s office with prescriptions for physical activity in addition to drugs, doctor referrals and follow-up protocols. Doctors are working exercise counseling into office visits and calling exercise a “vital sign” to be measured when they take readings like pulse and blood pressure.

Triggers that sabotage weight-loss efforts: Circumstantial triggers
By Annette Radvansky
How do you react to sudden, unexpected events in your life? For some individuals, these events — whether good or bad — can trigger an impulse in us to eat. A trigger is any person, place, thing, situation or food that has a tendency to cause one to overeat. For example, if your boss gave you an unexpected bad review, you could take that home with you and overeat because of it, not even realizing why you are indulging. The frustration with this has the potential to stay with us all day, unless we have tools to deal with these types of frustrations.

DIET & NUTRITION


Mediterranean diet is good for your DNA
The New York Times
The Mediterranean diet — higher in vegetables, fruits, whole grains and olive oil, and lower in dairy products and meat — has long been cited for its health-promoting benefits. Researchers have new clues as to why. They found that the diet was associated with longer telomeres, the protective structures at the end of chromosomes.

Don't despair: A slice of health is baked into that holiday pie
By Denise A. Valenti
Apple, pecan or pumpkin pie — forget the guilt. As we move through the holiday season, it is hard not to indulge in our favorites and then feel the regret. These three traditional desserts do come packed with calories — 550 for a pecan slice, 350 for apple and 270 for pumpkin — and most of the calories come from the fat in the crust. But the apple, pecan and pumpkin in the pie all have health benefits. The nutrients are diverse, and you would be hard pressed to select one over the other based just on health benefits.

Diet vs. exercise debate depends on the difference between weight loss and weight management
Medical Daily
You can’t outrun your fork, but you can dig your own grave with it. Weight loss tactics are one of the most talked about in America, and it’s because two-thirds of the country is either overweight or obese. Anyone who has tried to lose weight will know there are two main drivers to their destination: diet and exercise. But which one works best?

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT


Why swimming may be the best exercise as you age
The Washington Post
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 age 70 and older, and compared the types of exercise they did with their likelihood of experiencing a fall over a four-year period.

Why did vitamins disappear from non-GMO breakfast cereal?
NPR
Remember when Cheerios and Grape-Nuts went GMO-free? That was about a year ago, when their corporate creators announced that these products would no longer contain ingredients made from genetically modified organisms like common types of corn, soybeans or sugar beets. When they actually arrived on supermarket shelves, though, there was a mysterious change in their list of ingredients. Four vitamins that previously had been added to Grape-Nuts — vitamins A, D, B-12 and B-2 — were gone.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Everything you think you know about vitamins is wrong
Business Insider
With the new year coming up, many of us think of this as a time to take stock of our lives and do what we can to get healthy. And while there are plenty of useful steps we can take to transform our lifestyle, one of the most common — remembering to take a daily vitamin — may actually do more harm than good.

Everything you always wanted to know about blood doping and EPO
By James M. Larson
EPO is a bioengineered recombinant DNA hormone that is a nearly exact duplicate of the human hormone erythropoietin. Quite simply, EPO is the natural chemical messenger that tells your body and bone marrow to make red corpuscles — "Give me more blood." It is commonly used in medical conditions that are characterized by anemia, but athletes also use it to enhance performance. This is the more complicated part, but knowing how EPO works can benefit your training even if you don't ever use it.

Banned ingredients still found in dietary supplements
Houston Chronicle
Supplement shysters won't quit. That's why you have to sleuth out and avoid harmful products advertised on TV and the Internet, and sold on store shelves. Last summer the Food and Drug Administration had recalled 27 dietary supplements containing banned ingredients. That's good work, but, alas, it wasn't very effective.
