High Blood Pressure can be lowered by taking Multiple Short Walks Each Day

High Blood Pressure can be lowered by taking Multiple Short Walks Each Day

According to Indiana University researchers, taking three or four short vigorous walks spread out during each day is more helpful than completing the same amount of exercise in one lump of time. The study was first reported in the September issue of the Journal of Hypertension.

"The biggest problem for most people is they don't have the time," said Janet P. Wallace, professor in the Department of Kinesiology at the IU School of Health, Physical Education and Recreation. "You might think, 'I don't have the time to go to the gym or work out for 40 minutes, but I might have the time to do 10 minutes here, 10 minutes here and another 10 minutes here.' Four 10-minute walks would be ideal."

Pfizer Celebrex Lawsuits - 1500 and Counting

Pfizer Celebrex Lawsuits - 1500 and Counting

The first Celebrex trial, originally set for June 6, 2006, has been delayed indefinitely, reportedly to give attorneys more time to gather information. Although no new trial date has been set, legal analysts now predict that Celebrex trials will begin in early 2007.

The delay was requested by a federal judge in San Francisco, where Pfizer is facing around 1,500 lawsuits related to its painkillers Celebrex and Bextra, according to Bloomberg News. In light of the studies on Celebrex that have surfaced over the past year, any media update should say 1,500 lawsuits and counting.

Obesity - Overweight Children more likely to become Fat Adults

Obesity has been a huge concern in the United States which has prompted a group of researchers’ to study children and found that overweight children will be overweight by the time they reach age 12. Philip R. Nader, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine, is primary author of the study, with co-authors from 10 different institutions around the nation have reported this study in the September issue of Pediatrics.

The children were overweight at any time during growth before the age of 12 were more likely to be overweight by the time they turn 12. If the child was measured as being overweight more often than not, this too will increase their chances of being overweight by 12 years of age.

ADD/ADHD, Preservatives, and Money: A Dangerous Trio

ADD/ADHD, Preservatives, and Money: A Dangerous Trio

I was born in 1950, and when I was going to school there was no such thing as ADD/ADHD. I never even heard the term “hyperactive.” The closest we came was to call someone squirrelly.

But now there are “official” reports that claim that 3%-5% of the U.S. population has ADD/ADHD, and up to 7,000,000 children (the numbers vary in the reports) have been diagnosed.

What is going on?

I find it almost impossible to believe that human brain chemistry has changed so radically in fifty years. Instead, our environment must have caused this change, and I see two direct links. The first one is the gargantuan profits that pharmaceutical companies are making from their ADD/ADHD drugs. And the second is the enormous change in the quality of our food.
