Google Wants You To Live Longer—Much, Much Longer

Google Wants You To Live Longer—Much, Much Longer | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Google wants to hack the human lifespan. It has launched Calico, a new startup with a hazy  focus on "health and well-being, in particular the challenge of aging and associated diseases."

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

I looked at this a little. It's an interesting concept, one of the largest businesses looking at one of mankind's major problems. However, such a situation is rife with the opportunity for "unintended consequences". I'll keep watching this.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

We are assaulted daily by chemicals, many of which have been shown to be potential health threats. Many of these chemicals are used directly on the body. Cleanse your body with this soap-free cleanser.

The 7 worst senior exercises, and what to do instead — SilverSneakers | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Some exercises are unsafe for almost everyone over 60. Here are the 7 senior exercises to avoid — and what to do instead.
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

The science of strength: Seven ways muscle makes us healthier

The science of strength: Seven ways muscle makes us healthier | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Working out with weights, or doing other strength-building exercises, means different things to different people. It can be the buzz that comes with lifting a big barbell off the ground – or a way to make clothes fit better.

 

To Professor Rob Newton, Director of the Exercise Medicine Research Institute at Edith Cowan University, building muscle is like building a personal pharmacy stocked with "medicine" that does your body good.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

Exercise has long been recognized as beneficial to physical and mental health. Study after study has confirmed this. However, new research on weight training indicates possible health benefits of working out with weights that many have overlooked.

A new study suggests that exercising on an empty stomach can combat a high-fat, high-calorie diet.
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

While exercise at certain times of day may have more health benefits, it still is of benefit to exercise when you can. Also, each person is different, and, you might find that exercise at a different time is more likely to help you get it done, remain motivated, and experience more health benefits of exercise.

Food As Medicine: It's Not Just A Fringe Idea Anymore

Food As Medicine: It's Not Just A Fringe Idea Anymore | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Better health through good nutrition is not a new idea, but it's growing in popularity, and in acceptance among health professionals, as more medical professionals make meals and snacks a formal part of care, rather than relying solely on medications after the person's health is at risk.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

As a society, we rely on medicines to "fix" us once we are sick. However, there are many things involved in becoming sick, and, in staying healthy. Exercise is the leader that we read about the most, but, nutrition and rest are important aspects of living a longer, healthier life.

Why You Don’t Have to Exercise Every Day

Why You Don’t Have to Exercise Every Day | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it
Exercising a few times a week may be just as good for your health, your heart and reducing your cancer risk as hitting the gym every day.

 

Exercise is one of the best ways to avoid chronic diseases like diabetes and cancer, as well as an early death. But it can be tough to squeeze into a schedule: Health experts recommend about 150 minutes of moderate activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous, breath-sapping exercise, each week.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

No doubt that exercise is good for you, but there is a lot of misunderstanding about how much, how often, how long, how intense, and so on. Learn more about exercise at http://nodiet4me.com/exercise/ .

Pop a Pill for Heartburn? Try Diet and Exercise Instead

Pop a Pill for Heartburn? Try Diet and Exercise Instead | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Many Americans would rather take a drug than change their habits to control a persistent ailment. Yet, every medication has side effects, some of which can be worse than the disease they are meant to treat.

 

Such is the case with a popular class of drugs called proton pump inhibitors, or P.P.I.s, now used by more than 15 million Americans and many more people worldwide to counter an increasingly common ailment: acid reflux, which many people refer to as heartburn or indigestion.

Donovan Baldwin's insight:

While the health benefits of exercise are well known and acknowledged, they are not magic nor can exercise "cure" everything. Exercise can help you live a longer, healthier life, but, proper nutrition, sleep, and other good lifestyle choices help exercise do a better job of keeping you healthy. Even so, there are many problems and medical conditions that exercise cannot cure or treat, and you should always keep in touch with your medical providers to stay on top of these health issues.

Does Reading Make You Healthier and Happier?

Does Reading Make You Healthier and Happier? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Oz & Roizen had to say. ...But neuromarketing researchers from the University of Sussex's Mindlab found that reading an old-fashion, open-a-book-and-learn-something text (start with "You: The Owner's Manual," revised)…
Donovan Baldwin's insight:

While "health" is my beat, you might say, "aging" is usually my focus. However, I don't just believe in a long life, I believe in a long, healthy, life full of pleasure and enjoyment. Sitting on the porch in a rocking chair has its place on the pleasure curve, but, if you're going to sit there, why not enjoy a good book and get some extra health benefits from it.

Can wearable technology can help healthcare for the elderly? | Health and Fitness | Scoop.it

Studies indicate that by 2030 the United States population will be comprised of around 74 million elderly individuals. Such a large number gives us a good reason to look at new senior health solutions that can provide proper, swift and affordable care.

 

Adults are living longer lives now, and they are experiencing new health, economic and living struggles.

 

With many of the elderly experiencing health problems that include poor mobility, vision loss, hearing loss, communication barriers and memory loss, wearable technology can be helpful.
