https://www.youtube.com/embed/mMwn5AaBBh0 Eat right, exercise, don’t watch too much TV, keep your brain healthy, don’t smoke, don’t drink too much, don’t drink too little… advice for prolonging life is everywhere, but maybe you’re not living wrong, you’re just living in the wrong place. Sup cotton-top wannabes, Trace here for DNews. Getting older is inevitable and in some places the drudgery of aging is as apparent as grey clouds rolling over a sunny day, but that’s not always the case. In his 2011 book, “The Blue Zones” Dan Buettner used census data to find the regions of the world where people live the longest — Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Loma Linda, California; the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica… he called these areas Blue Zones. Living in each of these “zones” have mysterious benefits: Okinawa boasts the longest disability-free life-expectancy, and Nicoya Peninsula residents have four-times the chance of reaching age 90 than the…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/xREb5exvPho Reason number 1,215 for why science rules: it turns out, we’re all putting in way too much time at our jobs! Science says: work less! Hey there working stiffs, Trace here for DNews! Like many of you out there, I have a full-time job. This. And I generally put in 40 hours a week, or a lot more. But new research out of Australia suggests that I may be putting my health at risk. The study published in the journal Social Science & Medicine sampled roughly 3,800 men and 4,000 women to get an idea of how working for a long time would affect their health. They found that on average, working more than 39 hours per week led to a decline in mental health. Researchers think this is because it gives you less time to eat healthy meals and to take care of yourself.And there were actually pretty…

https://www.youtube.com/embed/nyplH6fUBDQ … and I ate this burrito and I think I got food poisoning That sucks. How long was the incubation period *confused*? What Hey everyone Trace here for DNews? My buddy Jared, who runs the DNews social media pages, got food poisoning today, so we thought we’d pull back the curtain on foodborne illness. People CALL it food poisoning, but the medical community call it foodborne illness, which makes sense You’re not being poisoned by food, but infected by something that’s living on the food Commonly food poisoning is caused by bacteria viruses, molds toxins, parasites or allergens. They range from the fairly well known E. Coli and Salmonella to the far less known, campylobacter, toxoplasma listeria and clostridium perfringens ( clostridEum, per-fringe-ens ) According to the FDA, most foodborne illnesses go away on their own and don’t have lasting effects –. But there are those like E. Coli…

Ads tell us milk, does a body good. But are we talking whole milk or 2%? It’s not what you think. Hi guys, Lissette here for DNews. If you were a child of the eighties or nineties your parents likely poured you some low fat milk – it was all the rave. In fact in 1985, the United States Department of Agriculture officially recommended a switch to skim milk – three glasses of it a day. But, more recently, we’ve begun collecting evidence that says the USDA might be missing an important piece of the story. In a recent study published in the journal Circulation, researchers looked at data that spanned about 15 years. They were specifically interested in how dairy fat biomarkers in the blood are related to diabetes. What they found might surprise the USDA. Higher concentrations of dairy fat biomarkers were associated with lowered risk of diabetes.…

Crystal: You never really know who we would have been if we had made one different decision way back there in our childhood, but because of the way the brain develops, we are more emotionally susceptible to the experiences that we have early on in life than we are later in life.
