Lifelong Exercise Adds Up to Big Health Care Savings

Now, the National Cancer Institute scientists pulled records for 21,750 of the volunteers and began grouping them by workouts, noting changes over the decades. Did these men and women start exercising more or less often during their 20s, as young adults? Did they take up or abandon workouts in middle age? Or were they consistently active — or the reverse — throughout their lives?

Then, the researchers compared these groups and at least a year’s worth of their eventual Medicare claims. And they found notable disparities.

Those men and women who reported exercising moderately throughout their adult lives, walking or

Your Trainer Shouldn’t Be Giving Nutrition Advice

The next time your personal trainer tries to sell you on a new protein powder or diet plan, hit pause—you should’t take nutrition advice from a trainer if they’re not properly licensed. While a trainer’s suggestions might come with the best intentions, nutrition counseling and personalized meal planning should be left to the professionals.

Western high-fat diet can cause chronic pain, according to UT Health San Antonio-led team

Childhood exercise may maintain, promote cognitive function in later life: Study | Health

An international research group has illuminated the changes in the brain’s neural network and cortex structure that underlie the positive association between childhood exercise and the maintenance and promotion of cognitive function in later life.

The results published in the academic journal NeuroImage explain that people who are physically active during childhood have higher cognitive functions in later life.

Participants who exercised when they were children did better on cognitive tests regardless of their current age. However, no such relationship was found between task performance and post-childhood exercise — suggesting that exercise during childhood is particularly important for brain development
