Here are this week’s reading diversions for your personal enlightenment. Have a delightful long weekend!
An early diagnosis protocol for Alzheimer’s has been designed by researchers at the Ionian University in Greece, opening the way for the prevention and more effective treatment of the neurodegenerative disorder, which shows rapid deterioration and constitutes growing concern for modern societies.
Memory loss that disrupts daily life may be a symptom of Alzheimer’s or another dementia. Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. There are 10 warning signs and symptoms. Every individual may experience one or more of these signs in different degrees. If you notice any of them, please see a doctor.
Dementia is a general term for loss of memory and other mental abilities severe enough to interfere with daily life. It is caused by physical changes in the brain.
Fill your cart and stock your shelves with nutrient-rich foods that can add years to your life. Start at the bottom (super important) and work your way to the top (very important) of Dr. Oz’s food pyramid. Note: Serving sizes should be about the size of your clenched fist, except for animal proteins, which should be about the size of a deck of cards.
Not long ago, most people—scientists included—were convinced that the biological indignities of aging were more or less inevitable. Survive past midlife and you’d start losing muscle mass, height, energy, and your car keys. Well, nuts to that. New and inspiring research shows that the supposed physical “certainties” of aging are mostly avoidable. Muscles don’t necessarily shrivel. You don’t have to shrink or slow down. The key to aging well? One word: Move. Even minimal amounts of exercise can counteract the effects of time.
Oftentimes letting go has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We let go and walk away not because we want the universe to realize our worth, but because we finally realize our own worth.
If you’re over 40 and struggling with your weight, I don’t have to tell you that your metabolism is slowing down. Our calorie converting engines are at their highest until we reach 20, and then they gradually slow as we age.
Controlling types have to be right. There is always an excuse for their behavior (however brutal) and always a reason to blame others. Controlling people are perfectionists and micro-managers. Their capacity to criticize others is endless.
Ideally, daily nutritional needs should be met through healthy eating—but the typical diet does not always supply all the vitamins and minerals a body needs. So even in healthy people, multivitamins and other supplements may help prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies and they can also provide more nutrients than diet alone, which may help to protect against or manage certain diseases. The following list gives the daily optimum amounts of nutrients that might benefit healthy people.
Imagine a selection of foods that were delicious, nutritious and good for you – i.e. they reduced your risk of developing diseases. According to several different surveys and sources in North America and Western Europe, the following ten foods are generally considered to be the most healthy.
Tim Hortons’ roasting plant is filled with stacks upon stacks of coffee beans, which arrive from countries like Brazil, Guatemala, El Salvador and Kenya. Even before the beans are shipped to Ancaster, Ont., Tims has a sample of each sent to its tasters to ensure quality. Each pallet is marked with a bar code denoting country of origin, as well as the region it arrived from. This allows Tims to monitor the climate conditions the beans are grown in.
If you want to add serious years to your life, you need to cut serious calories from your diet.
What’s the magic in the ring? The social connectedness of marriage may lower stress levels and depression, which lead to chronic illness. (Women tend to have more social ties outside of marriage.)
Medical screening tests are a great way to stay on top of your health. Think of them as basic maintenance, just like checking the oil and tire pressure to keep your car gunning down the highway. To help make it simple, we’ve compiled a list of the most important medical tests every woman should have — along with what age to start and how often to repeat. Here’s to routine maintenance for your health.
Almost everyone has experienced the life-altering impact of Alzheimer’s, either through friends or family. You have the power to help change your and your loved ones’ fates by sharing how to stop forgetfulness in its tracks and literally grow your brain so it’s stronger than ever.
Aside from herbal or fruit-infused teas, most teas come from the leaves of the same tea bush, Camellia sinensis. The benefit of each kind of tea from the Camellia sinensis depends upon when and where the leaves are harvested and how their properties are brewed or extracted. To get to the truth about tea, we need to gaze into the leaves a bit, too.
I have a small kitchen that doesn’t have a lot of storage space. Because of that, my refrigerator looks more like a pantry—a very full, disorganized pantry. After one of the shelves on the door broke off for about the 100th time under the strain of every condiment known to man, I decided to finally do something about it.
Nobody needs a refresher about the importance of water. Drinking water, that is. Nutrition advice includes always ensuring you get about (there is some argument here) eight glasses or so each day. However, a new study unearths a couple of consequences of dehydration you might not have considered.
