You won’t be happiest until you turn 65 years old

A recent government survey asked people in the UK to rate out of 10 how satisfied they were with life, as well as how anxious and happy they’d felt. The results showed that people aged 65-79 had the highest levels of life satisfaction and happiness, and the lowest levels of anxiety.

But things appeared less rosy for those aged 45-59, who reported the lowest levels of life satisfaction.
The findings add further evidence that the mid-life crisis is real.

Clearing the Body's Retired Cells Slows Aging and Extends Life

A series of experiments in mice has led to what some are calling “one of the more important aging discoveries ever."

Throughout our lives, our cells accumulate damage in their DNA, which could potentially turn them into tumors. Some successfully fix the damage, while others self-destruct. The third option is to retire—to stop growing or dividing, and enter a state called senescence. These senescent cells accumulate as we get older, and they have been implicated in the health problems that accompany the aging process.

Dietary Fiber Intake in Young Adults and Breast Cancer Risk

A study published Monday in the journal Pediatrics concludes that eating lots of fiber-rich foods during high school years may significantly reduce a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.

The findings are based on a long-term study of 44,000 women who were surveyed about their eating habits in high school. The women also completed detailed questionnaires about their dietary habits every four years.

The Paper: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2016/01/28/peds.2015-1226
Eating fruits, vegetables, grains and beans high in fiber can help keep us healthy. A study finds yet another benefit: Women on a high-fiber diet had a lower risk of developing breast cancer.

Exercise alone won't cause weight loss, study shows

Exercise is important for health, but study suggests that activity alone does not necessarily burn extra calories, and that diet should be the focus of weight loss

Exercise alone is not enough to lose weight because our bodies reach a plateau where working out more does not necessarily burn extra calories, researchers have found.

Americans may love “natural” food, but most have no idea what it is

Ritzy food stores, the anti-GMO movement, and celebrity health gurus like the Food Babe would have you believe that any food not made in a “natural”—or organic, or farm-raised, or wholesome—way is inherently bad for you. By the looks of the US’s supermarket purchasing trends, a lot of people agree.

Meanwhile, half of people buying foods labeled “natural” are not totally clear on what the word “natural” actually means.

Chinese women are now being diagnosed with cancer at a much faster rate than men

The report suggests that such increases could be a result of leading a more “Westernized” lifestyle. “Increases in the prevalence of obesity and physical inactivity” were among the potential causes cited in the report. But that doesn’t explain why women in China have much higher rates of some cancers, like of the stomach.
Thyroid, cervical, and breast cancer are rising fast in Chinese women.

The UK has become the first country to license genetic modification of human embryos

British authorities have become the first in the world to license a gene-editing technique on human embryos for research.

The landmark decision permits researchers from the Francis Crick Institute in London to edit the genomes of human embryos using a technique known as CRISPR–Cas9, a powerful tool that allows researchers to snip out defective genes and replace them with healthy ones with groundbreaking accuracy.

Researchers will look at the earliest stage of human development—the first seven days of a fertilized egg—to gain a better understanding of how a healthy human embryo grows.


Critics argue that the powerful technique could lead to designer babies.

The eternal weight-loss question: Exercise or diet?

“You cannot outrun a bad diet. . . . [Exercise] isn’t enough when it comes to losing weight or staying healthy.”

In fact, it’s hard to outrun, or outwalk, even a healthy eating plan if you eat more calories than your body burns. Think about it. Walking a mile burns roughly 100 calories, equivalent to a large piece of fruit or a couple of tablespoons of mixed nuts. Hardly indulgent!

Big Soda now has a planet-sized problem on its hands

The public health arm of the United Nations is recommending that countries consider taxing junk foods—especially sugary drinks—in an effort to curb the growth of childhood obesity worldwide. That’s bad news for the soda industry, which has fought vigorously against such levies.

The call for taxes suggests that the long-term downtrend in carbonated beverage sales seen in the developed world, could be set to spread to remaining areas of growth in emerging markets.

Taxing soda is one way to tackle obesity, but is it the best?
