How Type 2 Diabetes Peoples Can Lose Weight, Keep It Off


An demanding lifestyle change program helped people with type 2 diabetes lose weight and keep it off, a new study shows. The program also led to improved control of blood glucose levels and concentrated risk factors for cardiovascular disease, both of which are critical in preventing long-term complications caused by diabetes.
The study integrated 5,145 overweight or obese people, average age 58.7, with type 2 diabetes. About half were assigned to a lifestyle intervention that included diet changes and physical activity designed to achieve a 7 percent weight loss in the first year and maintain it in following years.
The other participants were assigned to a diabetes education and support group that held three sessions a year to discuss diet, exercise and social support.
After four years, the participants in the lifestyle interference group had lost an average of 6.2 percent of their body weight, compared with 0.9 percent for the diabetes support group. The lifestyle interference group also had greater improvements in fitness, blood glucose control, blood pressure and levels of "good" HDL cholesterol.
"Even though the differences between the two groups were greatest initially and decreased over time for several measures, the differences between the two groups averaged across the four years were substantial. The results indicate that the intensive lifestyle intervention group spent a considerable time at lower cardiovascular disease risk," the researchers wrote.

10 Tips on How to Avoid Bed Bug Bites


Bed bug bites don't often hurt. But there are instances where a bed bug bite can elicit allergic reactions such as skin irritation, rashes or even infections. These blood suckers don't pick out their victims and it's best to know how to prevent and control their infestation.




Know the Facts
To prevent these bugs from invading your home or apartment, it's important to learn what they are and how they grow. They often thrive in well protected crevices and as their name implies, on beds and mattresses. Bed bugs are brown wingless insects that span less than an inch. They can survive for extended periods of time so getting rid of them is important.

Finding Bed Bugs
To avoid bites from these blood suckers, the most important thing to do is to identify places where they could grow and will possibly thrive. The first things to check include the mattress, the bed frame, and areas near the bed. They also live on furniture, cracks and holes, luggage and even on clothes. Examine the whole bedroom and house thoroughly if there's evidence of an infestation. Simple bite marks on the skin and blood stains on the bed sheet are good indicators that they are around.

Cleaning
Cleaning is one the best ways to stay bed bug free. Always make it a point to clean the house and the bedroom. If possible, scrub areas and wipe furniture clean. Cleaning helps remove these pests from their "harborages" or safe havens. One of most effective ways to clean the house from these bugs is through the use of vacuum. Make sure to vacuum areas thoroughly and wipe them clean afterwards.

Steam
Steam cleaning can help kill existing bed bugs. They are not tolerant to extreme pressure so exposing them to the steamer can effectively kill them. Make sure to apply sufficient heat on surfaces.

Wash Fabrics Regularly
Blankets, pillow cases, mattress, and sofa covers should be washed regularly using hot water. Hot water kills these pests instantly. A good routine would be to wash fabrics once a week.


Expose Items to Extreme Heat
Likewise, for items that can't be laundered, it's best to seal them in plastic bags and expose them to the sun. The sun's heat is often sufficient enough to kill any bugs present.

Go For Natural
While pesticides are often used to stop insect infestations, it shouldn't be used to treat a bed bug infestation. Oftentimes, they thrive in areas where people frequently rest and hang around. It wouldn't be too healthy for any person to be exposed to pesticides and its residues.

Diatomaceous Soil
Diatomaceous soil is a good natural treatment for these critters. Diatomaceous soil contains jagged fossils that can easily cut insects. They can be placed in cracks and crevices where the bugs thrive and flourish.

Caulk
Caulk may be used to block the bugs from entering cracks and holes inside the house. It's often hard for bed bugs to penetrate caulk.

Cold Temperature
It's also possible to get rid of bed bugs by exposing things to extreme cold. During winter, seal items in plastic covers and leave them out in the cold for some time.

Professional Help
If all else fails then it's necessary to call in professional pest exterminators. They'll know what to do and how to handle bed bugs and what to do to prevent them from coming again

Chocolate Coca Cola Cake

I had never heard of this cake before nor any of my main family members. I found it in my recipe book but found this is a common recipe. Online sometimes referred to as a white trash cake recipe.I thought, as did my mom & grandma, Coco Cola Cake? Is this like tomato soup cake. With liquid tomato soup out of a can in the center of the cake? Here is what I soon discovered about the infamous

Be Sit Properly at the Computer

It is important to maintain proper position when sitting at the computer.The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offer these suggestions:


  • Option for a chair that is easy to adjust, feels stable, includes a backrest, and with wheels that touch the floor at a minimum of five points.
  • Make sure your knees are at the level of your hips while your feet are planted on the floor.
  • Use bendable armrests to support your arms and place your elbows close to your waist.
  • Make sure the seat is padded and offers at least an inch of room beyond your thighs and hips.
  • The seat should slightly point near the floor. There also should be some room between the back of your knees and the seat.

Breast Cancer Patients in Canada Drop With Decrease in HRT


A decline in breast cancer rates among postmenopausal women in Canada previous this decade coincided with a decrease in the use of hormone replacement therapy, a new study shows.
Researchers analyzed national data and found that "the nearly 10 percent drop in enveloping breast cancer rates coincided with the decline in use of hormone replacement therapy reported among Canadian women aged 50 to 69 years."
The largest decrease in hormone therapy occurred between 2002 and 2004, when use fell from 12.7 percent to 4.9 percent. During that same period, there was a 9.6 percent decline in breast cancer occurrence, said Prithwish De, of the Canadian Cancer Society, and colleagues.
Hormone therapy use decreased radically in several countries after the release in 2002 of a U.S. study that showed the health risks of hormone therapy outweighed the benefits. The researchers noted that breast cancer rates amongst postmenopausal women in Canada began to rise again in 2005. This may be further evidence of a connection between hormone therapy and breast cancer, they said.
"Such a return might be expected if [undetected] hormone-sensitive tumors were merely slowed by the withdrawal of hormone replacement therapy rather than prevented by it. If so, hormone substitute therapy may be thought to act as a promoter, rather than a cause of breast cancer," the researchers said in the release.

Help Prevent Bed Wetting

Many children wet the bed until age 5, and an occasional lapse among even older children is common, experts say.
The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse offers these suggestions to help prevent bed wetting:
  •  Limit your child to one drink with dinner.
  •  Don't let your child drink anything just before bed.
  •  Don't give your child beverages that contain caffeine, which accelerates urine production.
  •  Have your child use the bathroom immediately before bed.
  •  Don't scold or punish your child for wetting the bed, and encourage dry nights with lots of praise.

Injections May Relieve Drooling in Nerve-Damaged Kids


Botulinum toxin injections may temporarily relieve drooling in children with certain neurological conditions, a new European study has found.
Depending on its severity, drooling can lead to stigmatization and social neglect, numerous daily clothing changes, skin irritation around the mouth, aspiration pneumonia and dehydration, Dr. Arthur Scheffer of Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and colleagues noted in a news release about their study.
In the study, Scheffer's team gave botulinum toxin injections to 131 children, average age 10.9 years, with cerebral palsy or other non-progressive neurological conditions, as well as moderate to severe drooling. Two months after the injections, the average drooling quotient had fallen to 15.5 (on a scale of zero to 100) from 28.8 at the start of the study. And, the study authors noted, 61 patients achieved a 50 percent reduction in drooling.
At the eight-month follow-up, the average drooling quotient was 18.7, according to the report in the September issue of the journal Archives of Otolaryngology -- Head & Neck Surgery.
Botulinum toxin injections have been used safely for years, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Side effects can include rash, whole-body muscle soreness, difficulty swallowing and weakness in the injected muscles, but they usually go away quickly, the AAP notes.

Cleaning Your Home Office or Computer Room


Your home office can be the central business center of the home, and oftentimes with all of those papers and documents, it may be hard to focus on where to get started, or exactly how to clean. Dust is public enemy number one when it comes to a home office. It seems to pervade everything, including computer screens, keyboards, bookshelves, and desktops. Of course we all know that the leading killer of dust is pledge and a dustcloth, but here are a few tips you may not have known.



To keep your computer and keyboards from getting dusty, purchase plastic covers for them. You can also make your own out of trash sacks, or, if you have a creative streak, by sewing custom covers from fabric or old curtains.

If neither of those options work for you, there are other ways of keeping computers and their equipment dust-free. The keyboard dusters you can purchase are ideal for this. They are an aerosol can that sprays intense bursts of air, and be used for more than just a keyboard!

Did you also know that it is safe to use Windex on your computer screens? Many people are under the mistaken assumption that using Windex on a computer screen (or rough paper towels) will damage the screen. Not so unless perhaps you own a computer monitor from before 1990 (if you do, please consult the owners manual that came with the monitor before cleaning). Also, a good way to rid computer screens from dust longer, is after cleaning, to give them one good final wipe down with a fabric softener sheet (the kind that you thrown in the dryer). It takes away most of the static from the screen that draws dust.

Also, you can easily clean a mousepad with regular dish detergent and warm water. Just scrub the pad with dish soap, rinse well with water, and pat dry with a paper towel!

A mouse is easily cleaned by removing the cover from in front of the ball, taking out the ball, and cleaning out any dirt inside with cotton swabs dipped in alcohol.

You can also save time and money in a home office in high traffic carpet areas, and places where sliding chairs sit by purchasing heavy plastic floor mats made for this purpose (just like you see in office building) at your local office supply superstore, such as Staples. This will make your floor cleaning so much easier, and will extend the life of your carpet.

To give your office a quick lift if you have artificial flowers or plants is to spray the pants directly with an aerosol air freshener. Not only does it make the leaves instantly shiny, it also leaves a pleasant scent that will last.

If you own a pet, like I do, and you are constantly trying to remove pet hairs from chairs in your home office, a simple way to remove them is to wrap clear shipping tape backwards around your hand, sticky side out, and pat away at the chairs. An even simpler and faster way is to use an old paint roller, wrapping the tape backwards around it, and rolling it quickly across the furniture to remove hair. The tape can be reused until it has lost its stickiness.

Remember, motivation and perseverance are the keys to a clean home! Stay focused, and best of luck!

Weight Loss Equals economic Gain

Losing weight will get better your health, but also help you save thousands of dollars.A study released Tuesday by George Washington University researchers showed the annual overall cost for being fat is $4,879 for women and $2,646 for men.



The study factored in equipment like sick days taken at work, the cost of extra gasoline, medical bills, and the loss of productivity. It is more luxurious for women to be obese, because according to the study, obese women earn less money than healthy women -- while obese men earn about the same as healthy men. The story also shows a gender difference in the economic value of lost life. This feature raises the women's annual obesity costs up to $8,365, and men's to $6,518.
Two-thirds of Americans are either overweight or fat.

Metabolic Syndrome Doubles Heart Risk, Analysis Shows


The combination of metabolic syndrome risk factors -- including obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and insulin resistance -- increases the risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. And about 25 percent of American adults have metabolic syndrome, according to the U.S. National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
In the new analysis, researchers examined more than 70 recent studies that included a total of nearly one million patients. The investigators found that people with metabolic syndrome are up to 2.5 times more likely to die of heart-related causes and to have heart disease, a heart attack or stroke, compared to people without the syndrome.
"Ultimately, population-level interventions such as New York City's ban on trans-fats are needed to decrease the number of people with the metabolic syndrome and their corresponding cardiovascular risk," Eisenberg said in the news release.

Most of the Americans Do not Get Daily Exercise


Only about 5 percent of American adults do some type of energetic physical activity on any given day, according to the results of a new study. Researchers analyzed 2003-2008 data from nearly 80,000 participants, aged 20 and older, in the American Time Use study, a national telephone-based poll that asked people what they did in the preceding 24 hours.
Most respondents reported sedentary activities such as eating and drinking (95.6 percent) and watching television/movies (80.1 percent), or light behavior such as washing, dressing and grooming (78.9 percent), and driving a car, truck or motorcycle (71.4 percent).
The most regularly reported moderate activities were food and drink preparation (25.7 percent) and lawn, garden and houseplant care (10.6 percent), lead investigator Catrine Tudor-Locke, director of the Walking Behavior Laboratory at Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, La., and colleagues found. Only 5 percent of respondents reported vigorous physical activities, including using cardiovascular exercise equipment (2.2 percent) and running (1.1 percent).
The survey findings are published online and in the October print issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine. On any given day, most U.S. adults reported performing mostly sedentary and light activities. The greatest frequency for reported moderate activities was food and drink preparation for both men (12.8 percent) and women (37.6 percent)," the authors wrote in the report.

Gene Study Adds to investigate of Breast Cancer Risk


Findings may help scientists develop way to predict creature risk in BRCA1 mutation carriers. Newly recognized gene mutations may affect breast cancer risk in some women, an international team of researchers has found.
It is already known that BRCA1 gene mutations significantly increase the risk of breast and ovarian cancer. This new study looked at whether other gene mutations might adjust or alter that breast cancer risk.
The Mayo Clinic-led team first studied genetic mutations in 1,193 women with BRCA1 mutations who had enveloping breast cancer and 1,190 women with BRCA1 mutations who didn't have breast cancer. They then used those results to study a larger sample of women in each group.
The investigators finally identified five gene mutations in the region of chromosome 19p13 that modify breast cancer risk in women with BRCA1 gene mutations. But these mutations do not distress ovarian cancer risk in these women, the researchers noted.
The findings, available in the current issue of the journal Nature Genetics, may help improve understanding of the causes of breast cancer and "should be useful in helping determine individual risk for breast cancer in BRCA1 carriers," senior author Fergus Couch said in a news release from the Mayo Clinic.

Unfit men working long hours dual risk of heart death


Unfit men who work long hours are more than twice as probable to die of heart disease as unfit men who work shorter hours, according to new research. By gap, fit men who work long hours are not more likely to die of heart disease, the research found.
It is well known that long working hours are bad for but it has not been clear if physical fitness levels have any crash on the attendant rates of disease and death. The findings are based on 5,000 Danish men, aged 40 to 59, who between them worked in 14 different companies, and whose heart health and physical fitness levels were after tracked over 30 years.
Participants completed a cycling exercise stress-test and provided details on the standard number of hours they worked every week. More than two-thirds of the men clocked up between 41 and 45 hours a week, and approximately one in five worked more than this. During the monitoring period, 587 of them died (11.9 per cent) as a result of ischaemic heart disease.
Men working 41 to 45 hours a week were 59 per cent more likely to die of heart disease, but not more likely to die of other causes than men working less hours. Physically fit men working longer hours were 45 per cent less likely to die of heart disease and 38 per cent less likely to die of other causes than persons who were unfit. “The results that working more than 45 hours a week is connected with more than a doubled risk of (death from heart disease)among men with low physical fitness, and not among men with moderate or high physical fitness, is a new surveillance,” the study’s authors commented.

Quitting Smoking Benefits - The Good Stuff Starts Right Away!


Yes, quitting smoking is very much worth the effort.

Within 20 minutes after you smoke that last cigarette, your body begins a series of positive changes that continue for years.




- Your blood pressure starts to go down.

- Your pulse rate drops (My resting pulse has dropped from 84 to 62 since I stopped).

- Your blood circulation begins to improve. This is actually one of the biggest quitting smoking benefits of all. Smoking constricts (makes smaller) your blood vessels and capillaries, which means your heart has to work harder to get blood and oxygen to those places in your body where it needs to go. When you stop smoking your veins and capillaries begin to relax and open up, which lowers the work load on your heart, which is why you'll experience a lower heart rate, lowered risk of heart attack, lower blood pressure, and higher energy level.

The quitting smoking benefits go on and on.

8 hours after your last cigarette:
- The carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal (the bad stuff is going away).
- The oxygen level in your blood increases to normal (the good stuff is increasing).

24 hours after your last cigarette:
- Your chance of having a heart attack begins to decrease (I've been told this is a big plus).


48 hours after your last cigarette:
- your damaged nerve endings begin to regrow - your ability to smell and taste begins to improve
The first and most noticeable quitting smoking benefit that I personally experienced was that my cigarette cough, which was terrible before I quit, was almost totally gone after three weeks. Three weeks! Amazing!
The worst nicotine withdrawal symptoms are gone after the first month.

2 Weeks to 3 Months After Quitting
- Your lung function begins to improve. - Circulation improves - Walking becomes easier

1 to 9 Months After Quitting
- Your coughing and shortness of breath decrease.

1 Year After Quitting
  - Your added risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker's.

5 Years After Quitting
- Your stroke risk is reduced to that of a nonsmoker's 5-15 years after quitting.

10 Years After Quitting
- Your lung cancer death rate is about half that of a smoker's. - Your risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, and pancreas decreases.

15 Years After Quitting
  - Your risk of coronary heart disease is back to that of a nonsmoker's.

U.S. Meets Initial Breast-feeding Goal, Falls little on Others


Seventy-five percent of U.S. newborns delivered in 2007 ongoing life breast-feeding a figure that meets federal goals but that rate plummeted to 43 percent at six months and 22 percent at one year, a federal government study released Monday shows.
The report shows that breast-feeding initiation rates ranged from 52.5 percent in Mississippi to nearly 90 percent in Utah. Breast-feeding rates at six months ranged from about 20 percent in Louisiana to more than 62 percent in Oregon, while rates at one year ranged from 8 percent in Mississippi to nearly 40 percent in Oregon.
U.S. hospitals had an average score of 65 out of 100 possible points on a CDC survey that measures infant nutrition and care, according to the report card. The scores ranged from 50 in Mississippi to 81 in New Hampshire.
"Evidence shows that hospital routines can help or hinder mothers and babies as they are learning to breast-feed. The care that mothers receive from hospitals should always be based on practices that are proven to help them continue breast-feeding after they go home," she added.
Research has shown that breast-feeding offers many health benefits to babies, including protection from bacterial and viral infections and reduced risk of becoming overweight or obese later in life.
Breast-feeding has also been linked to a lower risk, in children, of getting type 1 or type 2 diabetes, asthma and childhood leukemia. In mothers, it is associated with a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes, breast or ovarian cancer, and postpartum depression, according to the National Women's Health Information Center.

Frequent Stroke Risk Higher for Some Hispanics


Study finds,Mexican-Americans with atrial fibrillation twice as likely to suffer a second stroke compared to whites.
Mexican-American stroke survivors with a heart rhythm disorder called atrial fibrillation are more than twice as likely to suffer a second stroke compared to white patients, a new study finds.
It also found that even though these strokes are more likely to be severe among Mexican-Americans, they don't have a greater risk of death after a second stroke.
In people with atrial fibrillation, the heart's upper chambers (atria) beat irregularly and don't pump blood effectively. This can cause blood to pool within the atria, which can lead to the formation of blood clots that can break off and travel to the brain, causing a stroke.
This study included 88 Mexican-Americans and 148 white stroke survivors with atrial fibrillation. Compared to the white patients, the Mexican-American stroke survivors were younger, less likely to have completed 12 years of education, more likely to have diabetes, and less likely to have a primary care physician.
Over a median follow-up of 427.5 days, 19 Mexican-Americans and 14 whites had at least one recurrent stroke. All but one of those cases involved an ischemic stroke, which is caused by blocked blood flow to the brain. One Mexican-American patient suffered a hemorrhagic stroke, which is bleeding in the brain.
"Based on some of our prior research, we were not necessarily surprised by the higher recurrence rate in Mexican-Americans with atrial fibrillation, but the greater severity of recurrent strokes in Mexican-Americans was surprising," co-author Dr. Darin B. Zahuranec, an assistant professor of neurology at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Research Center in Ann Arbor, said in an American Heart Association news release.
One reason for the difference in stroke rates could be that Mexican-Americans may not have managed the blood-thinning drug warfarin -- often used to prevent stroke -- in the most optimal way, Zahuranec said. He and his colleagues did not evaluate outpatient use of warfarin, which might have contributed to the increased risk of stroke in Mexican-Americans.

2 Genes Have probable Link to Deadly Ovarian Cancer


Scientists say result s may lead to new therapies for ovarian clear cell carcinoma.
Mutations in two genes may be linked with one of the most deadly types of ovarian cancer, U.S. researchers have found.
In the study, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center looked for mutations in 18,000 protein-encoding genes in ovarian clear cell tumors from eight patients. The investigators starts 268 mutations in 253 genes, with an average of 20 mutations per tumor.
Further inquiry revealed that two genes  ARID1A and PPP2R1A were more commonly mutated than other genes. ARID1A mutations were present in 57 percent of tumors while PPP2R1A mutations were present in 7.1 percent of tumors, according to the report available in the Sept. 8 online edition of Science Express.
ARID1A is a gene whose manufactured goods normally suppresses tumors. PPP2R1A is a gene that, when altered, helps turn normal cells into tumor cells. The genes had not previously been linked to ovarian cancer, the researchers explained in a rumor release from the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center.
The findings "may provide opportunities for developing new biomarkers and therapies that target those genes," Nickolas Papadopoulos, associate professor of oncology and director of Translational Genetics at the Ludwig Center for Cancer Genetics & Therapeutics at the cancer center, said in the news release.
Ovarian clear cell carcinoma, which accounts for about 10 percent of cancers that start in cells on the surface of the ovaries, mainly affects women aged 40 to 80 and is opposed to to chemotherapy, according to background information in the news release.

Men Seem More delicate to Memory Problems Than Women


The New Study finds, Among elderly, rate of mild injury was 1.5 times higher in males. Elderly men are more likely to suffer memory problems than women, new research shows.
The study integrated 2,050 people, aged 70 to 89, in Olmsted County, Minn., who were interviewed about their memory and medical history, and who undergo testing of their memory and thinking skills.
Overall, nearly 14 percent of the participants had mild cognitive destruction (MCI), but the rate was 1.5 times higher in men (19 percent) than in women (14 percent). People with MCI have memory or thoughts problems that are more serious than what's associated with normal aging. Although not everyone who has MCI develops Alzheimer's disease, people with the impairment do often go on to develop it, according to the Alzheimer's Association.
The study, published in the Sept. 7 issue of the journal Neurology, also found that about 10 percent of the participants had dementia, and 76 percent had normal memory and view skills.
"This is the first study conducted among community-dwelling persons to find a higher occurrence of MCI in men," study author Dr. Ronald Petersen, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., said in an American Academy of Neurology news release.
"If these results are established in other studies, it may suggest that factors related to gender play a role in the disease. For example, men may skill cognitive decline earlier in life but more gradually, whereas women may transition from normal memory directly to dementia at a later age but more quickly," he added.
The study, funded by the U.S. National Institute on Aging and a Mayo Clinic Alzheimer's disease research program, also found that MCI was more common among people who had a lower level of education or who were never married.

Large Companies More Likely to recommend Dental Insurance


Only about a third of all U.S. businesses offer it, study finds, Larger companies and those in more populated areas of the United States are more likely to offer dental insurance to employees, finds the first comprehensive study on the issue.
The analysis of state-by-state and national dental insurance coverage offered by 6.4 million employers was conducted by researchers at the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore and the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
They found that 56 percent of U.S. companies presented health insurance, 35 percent offered dental insurance, and 63 percent of those that offered health insurance also offered dental insurance.
Alaska had the highest percentage of firms presenting both health and dental coverage (80.8 percent), while the lowest was Vermont, at 42.8 percent.
Businesses that offer dental insurance are more likely to employ a better number of people, have more than one location and be older, more established companies.
The study appears in the Journal of the American Dental Association.

Keep Health in Mind When scheduling School Day Menu


As parents get ready for their children's revisit to school, they want to remember that healthy meals and snacks are essential for learning.
"Parents can make the school day easier for their children by provided that nutritious and yummy breakfasts, lunches and snacks that promote optimal learning. Everyone is in a charge in the morning, but it only takes a few minutes on Sunday to plan healthy meals to fuel your child's week," Karin Richards,Exercise Science and Wellness Management program, director of the and director of Health Sciences at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, said in a university news release.
Richards offered the following advice for parents as they plan breakfast, lunch and snacks for their school-age children:
  • It contains at least three types of foods into each meal, making sure to include some type of protein and complex carbohydrates, such as whole wheat bagels or pasta. The complex carbohydrates will provide energy while the protein will satisfy your child's appetite for a longer period of time.

  • Bring your child to the market with you and let him or her select one fruit or vegetable each week. Encourage kids to try new and interesting produce such as kiwi, papaya and edamame.

  • Check portion size. Three to four ounces of meat is plenty. Adjust the amount based on your child's age and action level.
    Add more vegetables into your child's diet, still if you have to sneak them in. For example, try zucchini bread, veggies with low-fat dip, or shred carrots into tomato sauce and soups.

  • For beverages, suggest low-fat milk or water. If you child prefers juice, make sure it's 100 percent juice.

    College Students Reminded to clean Their Hands


    As college students start on to settle into their new dorm rooms at campuses countrywide, one New York City-based public health advocate is contribution some basic advice to help them stay healthy during the upcoming flu season.
    Kathryn Hutchinson, executive director of health and wellness at St. John's University, meaningful out that the first thing students should do, ideally before leaving home, is to discuss the option of getting a flu vaccine with their parents and physician. This may help improve any anxiety students have about whether or not to get the shot.
    Ahead of taking that step, Hutchinson encourages students to arrive at school armed and ready to keep their hands clean and preserve a sanitary environment. That means stocking a supply of soap, as well as cleaning provisions to wipe down desks, sinks, computer keyboards and any other shared surfaces.
    Frequent handwashing is a must, and hand sanitizers are useful when washing is impossible. But, Hutchinson harassed, sharing glassware, utensils and personal items such as toiletries (razors, toothbrushes, combs) is definitely not a good idea.
    Also, students are urged to keep a digital thermometer on hand, and their health insurance card in case they need medical attention.
    One good way to keep from distribution germs is to practice "cough etiquette" -- in other words cover the nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, bowl away any used tissues immediately, and wash your hands as soon as possible.
    Overall, Hutchinson said, most students will find that the usual recommendations -- an work out routine, a healthy diet and sufficient sleep -- are the keys to staying healthy, as well as reducing their stress. But if and when health problems arise, she advises students to call a health care professional immediately.
