Exercise Protects Black Women From Type 2 Diabetes
FRIDAY, Dec. 19 -- Less TV and more exercise may help reduce incidence of type 2 diabetes, especially among black women, a new report shows. Researchers from Boston University's Slone Epidemiology Center made that conclusion based on a survey of black women, a high-risk group for the disease. The findings were published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology. The research linked vigorous activity with a reduced risk of diabetes. Those who walked briskly for at least five hours a week had less chance of developing diabetes than those who didn't walk. "Our results confirm that vigorous activity is protective against type 2 diabetes in African-American women," study author Julie Palmer, a professor of epidemiology at Boston University's School of Public Health and senior epidemiologist at the Slone Center, said in a university news release. "A key public health finding is that brisk walking reduced risk. That is important, because many women don't have the time or place t [Read more]
Eating Strategies for Healthier Holiday Parties
SUNDAY, Dec. 21 -- Rather than worry about gaining or losing weight during the holidays, focus on simply keeping steady on the scales by following some simple healthy eating strategies, one dietitian says. "Trying to diet during the holidays is setting yourself up for failure and personal torture," Jennifer Ventrelle, clinical nutritionist and registered dietitian at Rush University Medical Center, said in a news release issued by the Chicago facility. "Set an achievable goal: to maintain your weight through the holiday season." Since eating plays such a big role in the holiday fun, Ventrelle said to never go to a party hungry. Instead, eat a healthy snack -- such as yogurt or fruit, an apple and peanut butter, or a bowl of high-fiber cereal -- before the event to avoid gorging at the party. Eating small, lower-calorie meals during the day can also offset the calorie load of a dinner party. When at the party, eat slowly and use a small plate. "Take a small first helping. That [Read more]
It Pays to Eat Less as You Age
TUESDAY, Jan. 6 -- Eat less, weigh less. While it may sound painfully obvious, nutrition experts have been divided over whether cutting calories leads to long-term weight loss, because the practice can sometimes boomerang, triggering binge eating and weight gain. But, new research suggests that eating less can pay big dividends, particularly as you age. Publishing in the current issue of the American Journal of Health Promotion, researchers from Brigham Young University reported that the middle-aged women they studied had more than twice the risk of significant weight gain if they didn't cut back on food consumption. "Some suggest that restrained eating is not a good practice," BYU professor Larry Tucker, the study's lead author, said in a university news release. "Given the environmental forces in America's food industry, not practicing restraint is essentially a guarantee of failure." The researchers followed 192 middle-aged women for three years and compiled informati [Read more]
Common Flu Strain Resistant to Popular Antiviral Drug
THURSDAY, Jan. 8 -- The most common strain of flu this season is resistant to the popular antiviral drug Tamiflu, but government health officials said Thursday there is no reason to panic. The fact that the flu season so far has been slow, and that other drugs work well against this particular flu virus, has health officials adopting a watchful attitude for now. Click here to find out more! While the cause of the mutation that made the virus resistant to Tamiflu (oseltamivir) isn't known, experts suspect it was caused by the wide use of Tamiflu in other countries to treat upper respiratory infections. There were reports last year from Europe and other countries that a certain type of flu -- H1N1 -- was resistant to oseltamivir, according to Dr. Joseph Bresee, chief of flu prevention at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This year, the CDC was on the lookout for flu resistance to Tamiflu in the United States and, sure enough, it showed up. Moreover, the pr [Read more]
Sodium, Potassium Intake Tied to Heart Disease
MONDAY, Jan. 12 -- Too much sodium and too little potassium in one's diet may increase one's risk of cardiovascular disease, a new study suggests. The findings, based on a long-term analysis by the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of almost 3,000 people with pre-hypertension, also suggests that increasing potassium consumption along with the common wisdom of lowering one's salt intake may reverse the risk. Researchers found that for people with high normal blood pressure levels (120 to 139/80 to 89 mmHg), every unit increase in the person's sodium-to-potassium ratio raised his or her chance of cardiovascular disease by 24 percent. The findings were published in the Jan. 12 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine. A third of American adults have high blood pressure, defined as 140/90 mmHg or higher, while another 37 percent have pre-hypertension.

FDA Widens Peanut Butter-Salmonella Probe
FRIDAY, Jan. 16 -- U.S. health officials said Friday that they were expanding their investigation into peanut products possibly contaminated with salmonella, as the toll from the outbreak climbed to 452 people sickened in 43 states and one in Canada, and possibly six deaths. U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials have asked food companies around the country that may have bought peanut butter or peanut paste from a Georgia facility owned by the Peanut Corp. of America to test their products for salmonella contamination. The Associated Press reported that federal health officials late Friday said at least 85 companies had purchased peanut products from the Georgia plant and 30 had been "urged" to run their own tests for the bacteria. Dr. Stephen Sundlof, director of the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, told a late afternoon teleconference: "We have traced one likely source of salmonella contamination to a plant owned by the Peanut Corp. of America in Geor [Read more]

With Psoriasis, the Internet May Offer Hope
THURSDAY, Jan. 22 -- People with psoriasis can get valuable educational, psychological and social support from online communities, a U.S. study finds. It included 260 adults who took part in one of five online support groups. The participants -- mostly white, female, college-educated and averaging 40 years old -- included 188 (73.7 percent) with moderate or severe psoriasis and 206 (79.9 percent) who rated their health as average or better. The availability of resources was the key factor in their use of an online support group, followed by convenience, access to good advice and lack of embarrassment when dealing with personal issues. In addition, about three-fourths of the participants said anonymity was an important feature of online support use. The study found that 49.5 percent of participants said they believed their quality of life improved, and 41 percent perceived improvements in psoriasis severity, after they joined an online group. The findings were published in the [Read more]
