Certain flu virus mutations may compensate for fitness costs of other mutations

Seasonal flu viruses continually undergo mutations that help them evade the human immune system, but some of these mutations can reduce a virus's potency. According to new research, certain mutations in the genome of influenza A may help counteract the weakening effects of other mutations., w5vgYvDQFAs



0.6% soy isoflavone in the diet decrease muscle atrophy

Scientists have discovered a means of reducing muscle atrophy by the addition of the soy-derived isoflavone aglycone (AglyMax) to the diet of mice. This attenuation by soy isoflavone is attributable to block the apoptosis-dependent pathway in muscle fiber., DsTROABAQVE

On average, former elite athletes survive longer than their brothers. In addition, their self-rated health and health-related habits are better in comparison to their brothers at an older age. The study included in total 900 former elite athletes and their brothers., DxgAVDblEbs



Scarring molecule in fat tissue links obesity with distressed fat

The fat of obese people becomes distressed, scarred and inflamed, which can make weight loss more difficult., i zdSQq8Bk4



Cycling does not damage men's sexual or urinary functions

Cycling is increasingly popular for transportation, exercise, and leisure, and its impact on sexual health has received a great deal of media attention, especially regarding erectile function. Researchers have now found that contrary to some previous studies, neither recreational nor intense cycling appear to have a negative impact on men's sexual and urinary function., pMkGnT0dW E



Benefits of a healthy diet greater in people at high genetic risk for obesity

The benefits of sticking to a healthy diet to prevent long term weight gain are greater in people at high genetic risk for obesity than in those with low genetic risk, finds a new study., Z9rwg9K Wyg



Enzyme shown to regulate inflammation and metabolism in fat tissue

New research in mice and humans suggests that an enzyme called SNRK suppresses inflammation in obesity-related 'white fat' while increasing metabolism in heat-producing 'brown fat,' making SNRK an intriguing target in the battle against obesity., stToBgpzulg



Light activity measured with fitness tracker linked to lower mortality in older women

Researchers created a study to learn more about how much exercise older adults are able to perform, and how that exercise affects their health. The research team studied 6,489 female participants aged 63 to 99 years old.,  wJH3Jmco14



Exercise is good for the heart, high blood pressure is bad: Researchers find out why

When the heart is put under stress during exercise, it is considered healthy. Yet stress due to high blood pressure is bad for the heart. Why? And is this always the case? Researchers have obtained new findings which indicate that a previously undetected signal pathway causes or protects from heart failure – depending on the type of stress., 6InInwWsgng



Potentially life-saving health monitor technology

Sick babies in remote parts of the world could be monitored from afar thanks to new wearable technology. And parents at home, concerned about the risk of cot death, could keep track of their new babies' heart and breathing rates with automatic updates to their smart phones, using 'fitness tracker'-style technology built into baby sleep suits., CpZBFHxOIek



Prolonged periods of sedentary time strongly associated with amount of fat around internal organs

Researchers have found new evidence to suggest that longer periods of sedentary time (defined as any sitting/reclining activity with low energy expenditure) are more strongly associated with the amount of fat deposited around internal organs., hGKyDkTZaTE



Efforts to track food intake on smartphone app impacted by day of week but not season of year

Dietary self-monitoring is a key component of successful behavioral weight loss interventions and is essential for facilitating other behavior change techniques (eg, setting goals, providing behavioral feedback). A new study found that the amount of time in a study and day of the week were associated with dietary self-monitoring., nYAiuqLxGAc



Proper exercise can reverse damage from heart aging

Exercise can reverse damage to sedentary, aging hearts and help prevent risk of future heart failure -- if it's enough exercise, and if it's begun in time, according to a new study by cardiologists., e NH3n s54M



Space fever: Weightlessness increases astronauts' body temperature

Astronauts float weightlessly through space, and the condition of weightlessness is something many would love to experience. However, in addition to producing both physical and psychological stress, a trip into space affects our core body temperature. Researchers have observed that astronauts run hot when exposed to weightlessness, and that, even at rest, their body temperature is approximately 1°C above the normal value of 37°C (98.6°F)., pwWe2zz20Yk



Scientists uncover why sauna bathing is good for your health

Scientists in Finland have shown that sauna bathing is associated with a variety of health benefits. Using an experimental setting this time, the research group now investigated the physiological mechanisms through which the heat exposure of sauna may influence a person's health. Their latest study with 100 test subjects shows that taking a sauna bath of 30 minutes reduces blood pressure and increases vascular compliance, while also increasing heart rate similarly to medium-intensity exercise., ym9Ny6hHU4w



Promising anti-obesity drug shrinks fat without suppressing appetite

Given the ever-increasing obesity epidemic, researchers have discovered a promising developing drug that has been shown to selectively shrink excess fat by increasing fat cell metabolism. The drug significantly reduces body weight and blood cholesterol levels without lowering food intake in obese mice, according to a recent study., LjtnCJzd1Ks



Sedentary desk jockeys, stand up for your health

A few simple, strategic changes can move people from sedentary behavior to better health, a new study says. A group of students who cued themselves with timers and text reminders for six weeks took more frequent breaks from prolonged sitting; and those cues became habits even after those six weeks., KvBIki1aSg8



Facial exercises help middle-aged women appear more youthful

A 30-minute daily or alternate-day facial exercise program sustained over 20 weeks improved the facial appearance of middle-aged women, resulting in a younger appearance with fuller and firmer upper and lower cheeks, reports a new study. This is the first scientific study to test the premise of facial exercise improving appearance. The exercises enlarged facial muscles so face had more volume. Women looked an average of three years younger after 20 weeks of exercises, as rated by dermatologists., da7hRRMB6qo



Study uncovers potential key to preventing back pain in runners

A new study examines what may cause chronic back pain in runners and the exercises to help prevent it. The study suggests that runners with weak deep core muscles are at higher risk of developing low back pain. And, unfortunately, most people's deep core muscles aren't nearly as strong as they should be., nMKdlpB570A



Using rank order to identify complex genetic interactions

Genome sequencing has revolutionized genetics. It also requires new mathematical tools to help life scientists make sense of enormous amounts of data. Applying new math, experts in the area of mathematical biology show how ranking pathogen mutants can help scientists understand how mutants evolve to resist drug treatments. This line of research could have implications for the treatment of diseases that can resist drug treatments, such as HIV and malaria., fVTigkz7uRE



Try exercise to improve memory and thinking, new guideline urges

For patients with mild cognitive impairment, don't be surprised if your health care provider prescribes exercise rather than medication. A new guideline for medical practitioners says they should recommend twice-weekly exercise to people with mild cognitive impairment to improve memory and thinking., G5YMA91lR g
