Can Alcohol Help You Live Longer? Here ’s What the Research Really Says

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 18:48:00 +0100

The results came from the 90+ Study, a research project out of the University of California Irvine’s Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders that examines the habits of people who live to at least 90. Though the study has not yet been published in a scientific journal, it triggered a spate of booze-praising headlines. But can alcohol actually help you live longer? Res...

HealthWatch: Drinking Soda May Impact Fertility

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 22:42:06 +0100

BOSTON (CBS) — Could drinking soda affect your chances of having a baby? Researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health surveyed almost 5,000 men and women and found that drinking one or more sugar-sweetened beverages a day, by either partner, male or female, was associated with a 20% lower chance of getting pregnant each month. Prior studies have found that drinking soda can lead to poor semen quality, as well as obesity and type two diabetes which also can impact fertility. The researchers found little impact from drinking fruit juices or diet soda, but they say that couples who want to get pregnant might want to consider reducing their intake of sugary drinks.

You Asked: Do Religious People Live Longer?

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

If a long life is what you’re after, going to church may be the answer to your prayers. A number of studies have shown associations between attending religious services and living a long time. One of the most comprehensive, published in JAMA Internal Medicine in 2016, found that women who went to any kind of religious service more than once a week had a 33% lower chance than their secular peers of dying during the 16-year study-follow-up period. Another study, published last year in PLOS One, found that regular service attendance was linked to reductions in the body’s stress responses and even in mortality–so much so that worshippers were 55% less likely to die during the up to 18-year follow-up period than people who didn’t frequent the temple, church or mosque.

Amish People Stay Healthy in Old Age. Here ’s Their Secret

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 13:15:10 +0100

Many people think of the Amish as living without. These devout communities, predominantly located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, go without cars, TVs, computers, phones or even the electricity needed to run so much of 21st century gadgetry. But what researchers who have studied them have found is what the Amish have a surplus of: good health in late life. The average American life expectancy is currently just under 79 years. Back in 1900, it was only 47, but for early–20th century Amish it was already greater than 70. Over the decades, most Americans have caught up in overall life expectancy, but the Amish still have a significant edge in late-life health, with lower rates of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and more. So how do they do it? Start with lifestyle. Amish com...

Scientists discover new link between bone cells and blood sugar level

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 05:00:00 +0100
