Nothing to wine about

A DIET recommending you eat 100g of chocolate a day and drink red wine, which will add six years to your life - is this for real?

Scientists in Australia and The Netherlands have come up with a diet they claim will cut a person's risk of heart disease by 78 per cent.

And the good news is, you'll want to be on it.

The diet focuses on seven foods that have been proven to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure.

It involves daily consumption of 150ml of red wine, which has been found to cut heart disease risk by 32 per cent.

Chocaholics line up, because you have to consume 100g of dark chocolate per day, an amount the scientists calculate will reduce blood pressure.

You have to eat four meals of fish each week (each 114g), which is said to reduce your heart disease risk by 14 per cent.

The diet also includes a daily total of 400g of fruit and vegetables, also proven to cut blood pressure, and 68g of almonds to cut cholesterol.

You also have to consume 2.7g of garlic per day to reduce your cholesterol levels.

In a paper published in the British Medical Journal, scientists claim that if all these foods are combined in a diet they will lower the risk of heart disease by 78 per cent.

The research shows men who stuck to this diet would gain an extra six years of life and have an extra nine years free from heart disease.

Women would gain an extra 4.8 years of life and have an extra eight years without heart disease.

The proponents, including Anna Peeters from Monash University, claim the only adverse effects from the diet would be body odour from the garlic and raised mercury levels if more than the recommended amount of fish was eaten each week.

But they don't calculate whether it will help you lose weight.

And they warn that extra alcohol above that prescribed by the diet could reduce the effectiveness of the diet.

They say you can add extra ingredients to the diet to boost its effectiveness, including olive oil, soy beans, tomatoes, oat bran, cereals, nuts, tea and chickpeas.

Vitamin C injections could combat cancer

High doses of vitamin C injected into the bloodstream may be effective at combating cancer, new research suggests.

Scientists found that vitamin C in the form of ascorbate killed cancer cells in the laboratory.

But the effective dose was so high it could only be delivered to patients by infusion into the bloodstream.

Perhaps it's true but too much vitamin C kills. Dying from something else is the same thing isn't it?

But the dose in this case, and the way it's administered doesn't kill you.

Exercise could build brain cells in elderly, study suggests

Older mice that exercised on a running wheel developed new brain cells and learned a new task more effectively than older mice that took it easy all day, a study reports today.

The study showed that regular physical activity helped spur the production of neurons in the memory region of the mouse brain. If the findings hold true for humans, they suggest that regular workouts might give older humans a boost in brainpower and might even help forestall the forgetfulness and confusion that can plague people as they get older, says researcher Fred Gage of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, Ca.

If it's breaded and deep-fried, and covered with tartar sauce, that would kind of piss it away!! But that's the way fish is the best.

Wasn't it here I read that injecting vitamin c straight to the blood stream killed cancer in lab tests?

Eating fish regularly delays dementia: study

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Eating fish at least once a week slows the toll aging takes on the brain, while obesity at midlife doubles the risk of dementia, a pair of studies concluded on Monday.

Omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish have been shown to boost brain functioning as well as cutting the risk of stroke, and eating fish regularly appears to protect the brain as people age, the six-year study of Chicago residents said.

"The rate of (mental) decline was reduced by 10 percent to 13 percent per year among persons who consumed one or more fish meals per week compared with those with less than weekly consumption," wrote Martha Clare Morris of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.

Exercise amount more important than intensity

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - How much you exercise may be more important than how hard you exercise in terms of heart health, according to a study of sedentary overweight men and women. And, many will be happy to hear, exhaustive amounts of exercise are not needed for heart health.

In journal CHEST, researchers from North Carolina report that people who walk briskly for 12 miles per week or for about 125 to 200 minutes per week will significantly improve their aerobic fitness and lower their risk of developing heart disease.

Deadly Ecosystem ... In Your Pillow

Your favorite pillow holds an entire ecosystem of disgusting bugs and potentially deadly fungi, a new study suggests.

The typical pillow contains more than a million fungal spores, researchers found. That's several thousand spores for every little gram of material. Other studies have shown pillows and other bedding harbor dust mites, microscopic spider-like creatures that feed on flakes of human skin (see picture at top of page).

...What to do

Put allergen-impermeable covers on pillows and mattresses.

Wash bedding at least weekly in hot water.

Vacuum carpets regularly and steam clean periodically.

Losing Weight Can Help Sex Life

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - Losing a little weight can do wonders for your sex life. So says Duke University psychologist Martin Binks, who presented a study Monday at a meeting of The Obesity Society showing that shedding a few pounds can improve things in the bedroom by making people feel better about their bodies.

"You reap a lot of benefit from a moderate weight loss of 10 percent," Binks said. "It's a wonderful message. You don't have to reach some ideal weight to be healthy and happy."

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
