(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced new labeling requirements and testing standards for manufacturers of sunscreen that are sold over-the-counter. The final test requirements and product labeling will be in effect in one year.

The new regulation will limit the highest sunscreen rating to “SPF 50+.” The FDA says that anything higher than 50, has not been proven to show anymore benefit than SPF 50 rating. The FDA suggests that consumers read both the front and back of the product label to determine the amount of protection, the sunscreen lotion or spray offers.

Products must pass testing for certain criteria in order to claim that it protects from the sun's rays. The manufacturers will have to follow new methods to test the sunscreen effectiveness as outlined by the FDA. The label will need to reflect the test results.

(Best Syndication News ) - Yo-yo dieting is when a person loses and regains weight in a continual cycle. Researchers from Ohio University – Athens found that mice who did yo-yo dieting outlived the mice that remained obese. The study will be presented today at The Endocrine Society's 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston.

The best option to living longer is to remain at a constant healthy weight. Lead investigator, Edward List, PhD, a scientist at Ohio University, Athens wanted to find out if yo-yo dieting is as harmful as it has been made out to be. He said that very little scientific evidence shows the harmfulness of yo-yo dieting.

The study used mice because they could easily control the diet as well as measure the duration of lifespan. One group was put in a yo-yo dieting regimen while the other group remained obese their whole life. The third group remained on a low fat diet as a control.
There were a total of 30 mice involved in this study. One group of 10 received only a high-fat diet, another group of 10 received only a low-fat diet, the remaining 10 were put on a four week high-fat diet and then a four week low-fat diet to simulate a yo-yo diet.

(Best Syndication News) As we age it becomes more difficult to lose weight, but there are some things we can do to take off the pounds. Dr. Oz said that our metabolism slows down and we naturally gain weight.

There are studies to back-up his claim. The Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) conducted a study and found that athletes, even if they continue to exercise, can’t avoid putting on extra pounds. Men over the age of 50 lose muscle mass causing them to burn fewer calories.

On Monday’s show, Dr. Mehmet Oz said that one of the scariest things in life is “mid-life weight gain”. When you were young, it seemed like you could eat almost anything and not gain weight. But that changed in your 30s. He revealed his “Defy your age Diet”.
