staying fit reduces heart attacks

According to a recent study, poor cardio respiratory fitness could increase the risk of a future heart attack, even if there are no symptoms of a lifestyle illness today. The results of the study have been published in ‘European Heart Journal’. “We found a strong link between higher fitness levels and a lower risk of heart attack and angina pectoris over the nine years following the measurements that were taken,” said researcher Bjarne Nes. “Even among people who seem to be healthy, the top 25 per cent of the fit individuals actually have only half as high a risk as ...

Diet is More Important than Exercises to Loose Weight

diet control is more impotant than exercise

For those planning to hit the gym to lose weight, take note. A new study suggests that diet is far more important than physical activity including walking, fidgeting and formal exercise. The reason is because exercising increases appetite especially with prolonged endurance exercise or with weight lifting that can ultimately sabotage the best of intentions. People who lose weight gradually (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. About 10 per cent of our calories are burned digesting the food we eat and roughly ...

Eggs

eggs can beat diabetes

Eating an egg daily can have a beneficial effect on the blood metabolite profile that is related to a lower risk of Type-2 diabetes, a new study shows. The findings showed that the blood samples of men who ate more eggs included certain lipid molecules that positively correlated with the blood profile of men who remained free of Type-2 diabetes. “The study explored potential compounds that could explain this association using non-targeted metabolomics, a technique that enables a broad profiling of chemicals in a sample,” said lead author Stefania Noerman from the University of Eastern Finland. Eggs remain one of the ...

Choose Right Carbs for a Healthy Diet

choose right card for healthier diet

The thought of giving up pasta and bread in an effort to shed a few pounds might seem like an unfair punishment, but, according to various studies, eating the “right” kinds of carbs can keep us healthier. Carbohydrates are some of the most important things we consume. They are a key to regulating blood sugar and providing energy throughout our bodies and without them, our bodies will rely on protein, breaking it down for energy instead of using it in its preferred role of growing and maintaining tissues. “The people who live the longest, healthiest lives who have the lowest ...

tips to get fit after pregnancy

Even after their doctor has cleared them to exercise, many postpartum women are confused about how to safely return to fitness. For instance, when can the patient run and jump without incontinence? Is her diastasis recti responding to treatment by getting smaller and shallower, or staying the same? “In an evaluation, I have women break down the movements they need to complete the exercises they want to do, whether aerobic activity or strength training,” he says. “It’s all about giving women the tools they need to improve and not normalize the conditions they experience postpartum.”  Jaclyn Bonder, medical director for ...

exercising in the evening is good for sleep

Turns out, exercising four hours before going to bed does not have a negative effect on sleep. Even among sleep researchers, it is a widely held belief that sleep quality can be improved by avoiding exercise in the evening. However, according to researchers from the Institute of Human Movement Sciences and Sport, it is not generally true. The scientists concluded that “If doing sport in the evening has any effect on sleep quality at all, it’s rather a positive effect, albeit only a mild one.” By combining the data from the different studies, the researchers showed that in the night ...

Managing Cholesterol Reduces Alzheimer’s Risk?

managing cholesterol can control alzheimers

Managing cholestrol might help reduce Alzheimer’s risk, says researchers, including one of Indian-origin, who identified a genetic link between the progressive brain disorder and heart disease. Examining DNA from more than 1.5 million people, the study showed that risk factors for heart disease such as elevated triglyceride and cholesterol levels (HDL, LDL, and total cholesterol) were genetically related to Alzheimer’s risk. However, genes that contribute to other cardiovascular risk factors, like body mass index and Type-2 diabetes, did not seem to contribute to genetic risk for Alzheimer’s. “The genes that influenced lipid metabolism were the ones that also were related to ...

This Drink is a Must for Cancer Patients

must have drink for brain cancer

London: A drink containing a compound that makes tumor cells glow has helped surgeons in Britain to spot and safely remove brain cancer. The research was carried out with patients who had suspected glioma, the most common form of brain cancer. Treatment usually involves surgery to remove as much of the cancer as possible, but it can be challenging for surgeons to identify all of the cancer cells while avoiding healthy brain tissue. In a trial presented at the 2018 National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) cancer conference in Glasglow, the researchers said that using the fluorescent marker helped surgeons to ...
