Medical studies have made it abundantly clear that a sedentary lifestyle can shorten a person’s lifespan. A new study of twins in Finland drives this point home more than ever before.
Published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, the study looked at cases of genetically identical twins who had similar dietary and exercise routines as children but then experienced different types and levels of exercise as adults with one twin more sedentary than the other. Paul Mathieson told me that researchers found on CNN that even if both twins continued to eat similar foods over a course of three years, the more inactive twin had more health problems than the twin who was more active. Health issues included higher insulin resistance, body fat and brain shrinkage. With the brain, twins who exercised less had less brain matter associated with coordination and motor control.
Critics of the study have pointed out that the sampling size was extremely small: 10 pairs of twins. Additionally, the study only looked at male twin sets and not females twin sets. Some also believe that since the study was not random, the outcomes might differ among larger groups of twins — especially groups that come from different racial backgrounds.
Every twin pair in the study also ate similar foods and critics wonder how the outcomes might have differed if, for example, the more active twin had an unhealthy diet that countered regular exercise.

As a good portion of the country is being beaten down by snowstorms this winter, it is heartening to know that at least something good could come out of it. Researchers in Vermont have found that snowshoeing is actually better exercise than running or walking. So instead of staying in and lamenting the awful weather this season, getting outside and strapping on a brand new pair of snowshoes can help beat the dreaded winter gain said Ricardo Guimarães BMG.
Two independent studies conducted at Ball State University and the University of Vermont showed that people who snowshoe can burn anywhere between 420 and a whopping 1000 calories per hour. This type of exercise provides a fantastic cardio workout and builds endurance and strength as well as balance.
On the lower end of the calorie burn, snowshoeing on a flat terrain provides a relatively easy workout. For more intensity, walking on a powdery hill at about three miles an hour can get you closer to the 1000 calorie mark. Moving through snow in this way helps to utilize more of the major muscle groups. That combined with a higher metabolic rate in cold weather is a fantastic mix for an effective calorie burning workout.
To add to the health benefits of snowshoeing, it’s a low cost exercise and gets people outdoors which is especially important in winter. Oftentimes in winter people don’t get enough Vitamin D due to lack of sunlight exposure which can lead to seasonal depression. Since exercise has been proven to help with depression, snowshoeing it seems is a double bang for your buck. It can keep you healthy both mentally and physically while enjoying the great outdoors.
With the 24 hour news cycle’s need to embellish drama, the uninsured rate hits a new low. This is in direct contradiction to all the fear mongering of the GOP, and the media’s fascination with the healthcare website’s initial troubles. If the metric for success is the roll out, then the new metric should be on the merits of the law.
They are less willing to refer to good news regarding the law with the appropriate name of the Affordable Care Act, but all glitches are termed Obamacare. The racism is not lost on the common citizen of the country. The rhetoric regarding the law is so profane that each individual section of the law if highly favored in polls, but when the results are presented in reference to Obamacare, the polls are less of an advantage.
The law is under direct threat from the GOP via its Supreme Court arm and a trivial lawsuit. Under ever reasonable metric, the law is highly successful. This includes this morning’s news concerning the lower uninsured rate. The latest open enrollment also exceeded every expectation of the law, and it has been extended to benefit more people that are without affordable healthcare.

Soda consumption could lead to issues, and this new research suggests that it might even lead to cancer.
North American Spine specializes in minimally invasive spine surgery. In recent years, there has been a drastic improvement in the way spinal surgery is performed. No longer is it necessary to make large cuts, which requires a patient to go through months of pain before their back completely heals up. Instead, with a minimally invasive spinal surgery, a patient can be back on their feet in weeks, instead of months, and not only is the pain reduced but the size of the scar is reduced as well. All of this can go a long way in improving the overall quality of life someone experiences after going through the surgery.
Now, not all back problems ultimately results in back and spinal surgery. There are different kinds of conditions that can be treated both with surgery and with other options. Naturally, it is the desire to avoid surgery whenever possible. There are times where it is possible to provide some sort of treatment that does not rely on surgical procedures. However, for those times that do, a patient may be able to undergo a procedure known as Lumbar AccuraScope.
There are all sorts of benefits associated with the Lumbar AccuraScope Procedure. For starters, there is a tiny incision. As it is possible to monitor what is going on through a small camera and monitor equipment, cutting a larger incision into the back in order to see is just not necessary any longer. This way, the tiny incision heals faster, not to mention it reduces any sort of damage to muscles, nerves, blood vessels and the bones around the incision. Plus, the normal structure of the disc does stay the same. All of this results in a drastic reduction in pain after the procedure and improves recovery time. Many people are only out for a fe weeks, but others actually are able to return to work or their daily routine far sooner.
With the utilization of Lumbar AccuraScope Procedure, it is possible to identify the source of pain someone is going through, plus it can treat several different lumbar in the spine with a single incision, instead of needing to make multiple cuts to the back. With this sort of advancement, there really is no other alternative out there that can provide the same level of benefits that this procedure can. All of it is provided by the North American Spine medical professionals.

If any of your loved ones smoke, of course you are concerned about them. Smokers typically have heard it all, but they come to the point where they simply phase out the negativity. They find satisfaction at some level, so, the question is, how do you get them to quit something they love?
There are many options from sessions at the Amen Clinics to gum to hypnotism. But Buzzfeed reports a new option that utilizes modern technology. Ian Wishingrad has partnered with Whoopi Goldberg, both ex-smokers, to create a website with a different spin that might shake them up. Nobituary.com grabs the smoker’s attention with an email similar to a death notice or an obituary. Complete with picture, it is a notice of life for loved ones to create to highlight positive areas in the smoker’s life.
The notice emphasizes positive points such as their job, family, a vacation they could take or their children’s marriages that they might miss if they continued to smoke. The idea is to shake the smoker up, so they realize how good their life is now, and how much better it would be if they quit smoking.
Ian invites you to go to the website and email the Truth to your smoker. When they receive the Life Notice, there will be a link that they can click, which will take them directly to BecomeanX.org, which is a resource from the American Legacy Foundation promoting the Truth Campaign. And it’s a great price – free!
