Wearable devices and mobile health technology: One step towards better health

With increasing efforts being made to address the current global obesity epidemic, wearable devices and mobile health ('mHealth') technology have emerged as promising tools for promoting physical activity. However, current literature seems to indicate that these new technologies may serve best as part of a larger overall health plan, rather than working alone to encourage weight loss., fgwemdRpZD8

Grip strength of children gives clues about their future health

Adolescents with a strong hand grip -- an indicator of overall muscle strength -- have better odds of being healthy over time, according to a two-year study of 368 elementary school children. The findings give insights to identify youngsters at future risk for developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease., TbUCLk6P9tA

You're only as old as you think and do

Could increasing your physical activity or feeling more in control of your life be the secret to staying young? Employing these simple strategies may help older adults feel younger and that, in turn, could help improve their cognitive abilities, longevity and overall quality of life, according to new research., wFiQ54JVDxA

Exercise can help beat cocaine addiction, study finds

Exercise can help prevent relapses into cocaine addiction, according to new research., nOCDIL2kNeM

Exercise linked to improved mental health, but more may not always be better

A study of 1.2 million people in the USA has found that people who exercise report having 1.5 fewer days of poor mental health a month, compared to people who do not exercise. The study found that team sports, cycling, aerobics and going to the gym are associated with the biggest reductions, according to the largest observational study of its kind., 1rVCewLWC48

Older adults who get physical can lower their heart disease risk

Adults in their early 60s, who spend less time sitting and more time engaged in physical activity have healthier levels of heart and vessel disease indicators. The results from increased physical activity were found to be particularly good among women., ISRAyrwHZuE

Women and men experience different benefits from low-calorie diets

A low-calorie diet causes different metabolic effects in women than in men, a new study suggests., dlmt7ywU6E0

Soy diets might increase women's bone strength

Researchers now have discovered through a new animal study that soy protein found in food might counter the negative effects of menopause on bone and metabolic health. Moreover, the researchers believe that soy protein might also have positive impacts on bone strength for women who have not yet reached menopause., qcWqivZVwU4

Better sleep linked with family tree strength

The question of why we sleep has been a longstanding subject of debate, with some theories suggesting that slumber provides respite for the brain, which allows it to filter out insignificant neural connections, build new ones, strengthen memories and even repair itself. However, new research has used mathematical approaches to tackle the adaptive significance of sleep, and the findings suggest that sleep has another purpose -- boosting our 'fitness' and future family line reproductive success., rQW7x3O3EHM

New light shed on relationship between calorie-burning fat and muscle function

Endocrinologists have shown for the first time that brown fat can exert control over skeletal muscle function., tcyo2I13JYY

Muscle 'switch' may control the benefits of exercise

Studying lab animals and humans, researchers discovered that a protein called JNK helps to drive response to exercise. If JNK is activated during exercise, the researchers say, that stimulates skeletal muscle growth. If it's not activated, muscles improve their adaptation for endurance and aerobic capacity., 63wDMVMozFk

Makeup of an individual's gut bacteria may play role in weight loss

A preliminary study suggests that, for some people, specific activities of gut bacteria may be responsible for their inability to lose weight, despite adherence to strict diet and exercise regimens., jR9ovlOPm2A

Innovative technique converts white fat to brown fat

Increasing healthy brown fat might help weight management and reduce symptoms of diabetes. Engineers have developed a simple, innovative method to directly convert white fat to brown fat outside the body and then reimplant it in a patient. The technique uses fat-grafting procedures commonly performed by plastic surgeons, in which fat is harvested from under the skin and then retransplanted into the same patient for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes., OUwwMPGYiKs

Measure of belly fat in older adults is linked with cognitive impairment

Data from over 5,000 adults over the age of 60 indicates that as waist:hip ratio increases, so does cognitive impairment. The findings have significant implications as the global prevalence of dementia is predicted to increase from 24.3 million in 2001 to 81.1 million by 2040., 0fVMn4qMTKA

Heat therapy boosts mitochondrial function in muscles

A new study finds that long-term heat therapy may increase mitochondrial function in the muscles. The discovery could lead to new treatments for people with chronic illness or disease., IkZ5lMX1uzg

Cannabis does not improve breathlessness during exercise in patients with advanced COPD

Inhaled vaporized cannabis does not appear to improve or worsen exercise performance and activity-related breathlessness in patients with advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), according to a randomized controlled trial., rcGSUZdHObc

Four weeks of riding an e-bike promotes fitness and health

The role of the e-bike in promoting health and fitness is comparable to that of a conventional bicycle. In particular, overweight and untrained individuals can benefit from riding an e-bike., Yr T2f3cq1k

Aging can make it more difficult to swallow

As adults age, they all experience a natural loss of muscle mass and function. A new study finds that as the loss of muscle and function in the throat occurs it becomes more difficult for efficient constriction to occur while swallowing -- which leads to an increased chance of food and liquids being left over in the throat., zc0SZnU7IHg

Fitness trackers prove helpful in monitoring cancer patients

Fitness trackers can be valuable tools for assessing the quality of life and daily functioning of cancer patients during treatment, a new study has found. The trackers, also known as wearable activity monitors, include commercial devices worn on the wrist that log a wearer's step counts, stairs climbed, calories, heart rate and sleep., qpkzQS1Tm9Y
