Inactivity boosts their risk for falls, broken bones, serious disease and early death, CDC warns

More than one-quarter of Americans over 50 don’t exercise, a new federal report estimates, increasing their risk for heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

“Adults benefit from any amount of physical activity,” said study co-author Janet Fulton. “Helping inactive people become more physically active is an important step towards healthier and more vibrant communities.” Fulton is chief of the Physical Activity and Health Branch at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Building Muscle Could Boost the Body’s Most Important Muscle

People with heart disease should prioritize weight training over weight loss, study says

Having more muscle and less fat reduces the risk of early death in people with heart disease, a new study suggests.

Doctors should encourage patients to do resistance exercises as part of a healthy lifestyle, rather than emphasizing and monitoring weight loss, the study authors advised.

For the study, data was analyzed from more than 6,400 Americans with heart disease.

The investigators found that people with higher amounts of muscle and lower levels of body fat were less likely to die of heart problems or any other causes than those in three other groups based on body composition. The groups were: low muscle/high fat; low muscle/low fat; or high muscle/high fat.

VITAMIN C – What you need to know

vitaminc

Good for a Cold? Your immune system needs vitamin C to work right. But extra won’t help you avoid a cold, unless maybe you’re an extreme athlete, live in a very cold place, or you just need more anyway. Supplements might shorten a cold or ease its symptoms — if you were taking them before you got sick.

Prevents Cell Damage Vitamin C helps you get rid of chemicals that damage your cells and DNA. It’s considered an antioxidant: It neutralizes “free radicals” in your body created by pollution, cigarette smoke, sunlight, radiation, and simply turning food into energy. That could help keep many parts of your body working better for longer and protect you from diseases, including Alzheimer’s and cancer.
