Mediterranean Diet Might Help Stave Off Dementia

Mediterranean Diet Might Help Stave Off Dementia | fitness, health,news&music | Scoop.it

 Eating fish, chicken, olive oil and other foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids while staying away from meats and dairy -- the so-called Mediterranean diet -- may help older adults keep their memory and thinking skills sharp, a large new U.S. study suggests.

Using data from participants enrolled in a nationwide study on stroke, the researchers gleaned diet information from more than 17,000 white and black men and women whose average age was 64.

The participants also took tests that measured their memory and thinking (cognitive) skills. During the four years of the study, 7 percent of the individuals developed problems with these skills, the researchers reported.

"Greater adherence to Mediterranean diet was associated with lower risk of incident cognitive impairment in this large population-based study," said lead researcher Dr. Georgios Tsivgoulis, from the University of Alabama at Birmingham as well as the University of Athens, in Greece.

This makes reasonable biological sense since brain and cognitive health is so dependent on vascular health.  Strategies that improve vascular health and function of many years will reduce the likelihood of declining mental function.

Only 1 in 5 Americans Gets Enough Exercise

Only 1 in 5 Americans Gets Enough Exercise | fitness, health,news&music | Scoop.it

The news was less disappointing for aerobic exercise, with 51.6% of adults getting the recommended amount, than it was for muscle-strengthening activities, with only 29.3% getting the recommended amount.

The overall exercise rates also varied widely by state, ranging from 13% in Tennessee and West Virginia to 27% in Colorado.

The report was published in the May 3 issue of the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, a CDC publication.

"Exercise not only helps with weight management, it helps reduce anxiety and depression; boosts energy, immunity and brain power; and significantly lowers the risk for chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular disease," she said.

According to the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, adults should get at least:

=>  two and a half hours a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity such as walkin

=>  or an hour and 15 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, such as jogging.

In addition, adults should do muscle-strengthening activities, such as push-ups, sit-ups or activities using resistance bands or weights. These exercises should be done two or more days a week and work all major muscle groups, the guidelines suggested.

The highest proportion of adults meeting those guidelines were in the West (24 percent) and the Northeast (21 percent). Women, Hispanics and older and obese adults were less likely to meet the guidelines

"Simple steps to start moving include: enlisting a friend or family member to join you; taking a walk every evening after dinner; getting up and marching in place at every TV commercial; limiting TV and computer time; [and] scheduling your time to exercise in your daily calendar,

Seth Bilazarian, MD's curator insight, May 6, 2013 3:31 PM

The authors put a positive spin on this report but half of Americans are not exercising even at these modest recommendation levels (75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week).  The muscle strengthening data is even worse: 80% of Americans are not doing it.
