Free Public Exercise Programs Could Benefit Many Americans
Posted: Thursday, January 15, 2009
Numerous dangerous health conditions are a product of poor nutrition and exercise, but many individuals lack the motivation to change their ways and protect their health.

Posted: Saturday, January 10, 2009
Obesity is known to increase the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women, but the reason for this has remained greatly unknown. A recent study has found that in postmenopausal women, high insulin levels greatly increased breast cancer incidence, and it's speculated that obesity might be a leading contributor to high insulin levels.

Cardiovascular Mortality Equally Likely for Diabetics as for CVD Patients
Posted: Thursday, January 08, 2009
Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) have been closely linked in several respects, but little solid quantification of the risk diabetes poses to cardiovascular mortality has been achieved. A recent study has made a profound discovery, that in the long-term, mortality due to cardiovascular events (heart attacks and strokes), is equally likely for diabetics with no previous cardiovascular disease history, as it is for individuals with known cardiovascular disease (and non-diabetic). The study was conducted solely on males, but the results are suspected to extend to both sexes.

Blood Sugar Levels Linked to Elderly Brain Activity
Posted: Friday, January 02, 2009
Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels, both in diabetics and non-diabetics, plays a significant role in "cognitive aging," according to a Columbia University study. The researchers found that mental events in elderly individuals, such as the famed "senior moment," are associated in many cases with irregular blood sugar levels, and could potentially be avoided with proper exercise.

Juvenile Diabetics Lacking in Vitamin D
Posted: Tuesday, December 30, 2008
An unexpected risk has recently been found for youths with type 1 diabetes. Joslin Diabetes Center researchers have found that the majority of juvenile diabetics have insufficient levels of vitamin D, a condition that often leads to bone frailty and fractures later in life. Research has also linked vitamin D to skin cancer.
