What 3 Things Can I Do to Extend the Length of My Life?

Direction: After a short greeting, read the following article out loud with your tutor. Go over highlighted vocab/expression to make sure you understand everything. 

[Health ★★★★] What 3 Things Can I Do to Extend the Length of My Life?

 

(P1) Somewhere out there is a bunch of people who are going to live to be 100. In the U.S. alone, there were more than 77,000 centenarians in 2014. Still, that number is very small: centenarians represent less than a quarter of 1% of the entire U.S. population.

(P2) So how do you get to be one of them? You could invent a time machine, start your life over and do everything they did, or try to find a way to borrow their genes. Failing that, here are three things that longevity researchers recommend you start–and keep–doing.

STAY CURIOUS.
(P3) Once you’ve got a few years on you, it’s easy to think you’ve heard it all. But the idea that the world has nothing to teach you makes you stop asking questions–and that has consequences. “There is evidence that curiosity has longevity benefits,” says Laura L. Carstensen, a professor of psychology and public policy at Stanford University and the director of the Stanford Longevity Center. “Asking questions and discovering new things keeps you engaged with the world and with other people.”

(P4) Learning something new can be a form of problem solving: digging into an article about something unusual or asking a family member about her obscure doctoral thesis (and actually listening to the answer) requires you to exercise cognitive muscles that may have gone slack.

EAT WAY MORE PLANTS THAN YOU THINK YOU NEED TO.
(P5) The link between diet and well-being is something we learn early in life–and then forget over and over again until we die. That may be why so many people have diet-related diseases. In the U.S., nearly 28 million people have Type 2 diabetes, 86 million adults are prediabetic, roughly 1 in 3 adults suffers from high blood pressure, and a stunning 69% of adults are overweight.

(P6) So if there’s one thing worth drilling into your mind, it’s this: the healthiest diet is the one in which you eat a lot of plants. The celebrated Mediterranean diet is celebrated for a reason, with study after study showing that its focus on fruits, vegetables, nuts and olive oil is linked to a longer life.

(P7) A 2015 study of 450,000 European adults found those who ate a diet that was 70% plant-based–fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and beans–had a 20% lower risk of dying of cardiovascular disease than other people. A Harvard University study found that people who ate eight or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day were 30% less likely to have a heart attack or stroke than people who ate less from the plant group.

(P8) Multiple studies on both laboratory animals and humans have shown that caloric restriction–following a diet whose calories are roughly 25% below the recommended adult daily calorie intake–can have life-extending benefits. That’s not the way most people would want to live, but replacing meats with fruits and vegetables can go a long way toward slashing calories in a more satisfying way.

RETHINK WHAT IT MEANS TO BE OLD.
(P8) It’s hard to feel positive about a stage of life when you spend every year leading up to it assuming that it’s going to be grim. That, of course, is a great way to ensure that grim is precisely what it becomes–but the inverse is also true. “Our research has shown that when more-positive beliefs about older individuals are held earlier in life, they can lead to health advantages,” says Becca Levy, an associate professor of epidemiology and psychology at the Yale School of Public Health. That, in turn, can mean a remarkable 7.5-year boost in life span compared with people who have negative beliefs about age.

(P9) That means remaining mindful of the contributions that older people make to others–and making those contributions yourself. There’s no reason to accept that seniors are all addled and frail just because so many TV shows depict them that way.

(P10) Mortality is nonnegotiable, which is probably what makes it seem so terrible. But the number of years you get–not to mention the way you spend them–can in many ways be up to you.

Is Spirulina a Miracle Cure-all?

[Health ★★★★]

spirolina-ddda0050

(P1) Arguably the “superfood” of the moment, spirulina is associated with a number of health claims, from curing allergies and candida to detoxifying the body and aiding in weight loss. Does this blue-green alga deliver, or is it all health hype?

(P2) As it turns out, these claims are backed by little science and likely surfaced due to spirulina’s impressive nutrient profile. One ounce or approximately 4 tablespoons of dried spirulina contains 81 calories, 16 grams of protein, 60 percent of the daily value of riboflavin, 44 percent of the daily value of iron and thiamin, 14 percent of the daily value of magnesium, and 11 percent of the daily value of potassium.

(P3) The Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database lists all health claims associated with spirulina as having insufficient evidence to rate and warns that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid it. There also is some evidence that spirulina could interact with anticoagulant, antiplatelet, and immunosuppressant drugs. Due to its high protein content, people with phenylketonuria, or PKU, should not consume spirulina.

(P4) After the Natural Medicines monograph was updated in 2015, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial of 40 individuals with hypertension was published in 2016. It found that consuming 2 grams of spirulina for three months led to improved BMI, body weight, and blood pressure in this small sample. While spirulina is very protein-dense and these results seem promising, there is not enough information at this time to recommend it as a supplement for specific health conditions.

(P5) Due to its growing popularity, spirulina is cultivated in ponds and mass-produced all over the world, including Hawaii and China. Spirulina’s distinctive and strong seaweed flavor leads many people to consume it via capsule, while others mix the powder form into water, juice, or smoothies. Contamination by toxins and heavy metals is a serious concern, so it is important to choose a spirulina supplement with reliable third-party testing and quality assurance.

IBM Working on Bot to Help Elderly Age at Home

[Technology & Health ★★★]

1098606-11-20161229220745

(P1) Assisted living facilities and personal nurses aren’t exactly cheap. And as the Baby Boomer generation ages, finding an affordable means of helping people age in the comfort of their own home could be good not just for seniors, but for their wallets, too. So IBM is working on a prototype bot that could become what Consumerist describes as a “robotic roommate.” Built with sensors that can detect anything from a change in motion to sounds and scents, the so-called IBM Multi-Purpose Eldercare Robot Assistant (MERA) could help track whether stove burners are on or the person has fallen. IBM has been developing the sensors alongside Rice University out of its Aging in Place lab in Austin, Texas, reports Business Insider.

(P2) While a senior technologist says there’s a lot of work ahead before the robot will be brought to market, including sorting out how to customize a bot’s knowledge of a person’s home environment, health issues, and more, “in the near-term, it would be more of the ambient sensors in the home starting to gather all of this data.” The prototype is already capable of reading facial expressions, capturing vital signs, and recognizing speech. Obvious markets include the US, which is home to more 100-year-olds (75,000) than any other country, and Japan, which is a third the size of the US but has 65,000 people over 100 and, as Business Insider reported earlier this fall, has broken its own record of most centenarians per capita for 46 years in a row.

3 Reasons Why You Should Listen to Music at Work

[Health ★★★★]

20161228190814-6153063e51937c6afdd14991d3da8619081fbaf0-main-hero-image

(P1) There are some obvious pros and cons to the open office space. For one, off-the-cuff collaboration is easier, but it’s often harder to focus. Since calls, meetings, and all kinds of conversation are happening in the open, it’s natural to want to tune the world out with some headphones, especially when the office feels overwhelming.

(P2) But there’s a time and place for everything, and headphones are no exception. Here are the best times to listen to music in a way that will boost your productivity, instead of adding a distraction to your plate.

1. Noisy workplace? Play ambient, upbeat music.

When your environment is bustling, your brain will try to process all the sound as data. In that case, it’s a perfect time to slip on your headphones and some feel-good music.

This helps decrease stress and increase dopamine, so you can keep calm and focused.

2. Flip on the tunes during a repetitive task.

Entering spreadsheet data or making 100 name tags for an event? Music triggers neurotransmitters like serotonin and norepinephrine, resulting in faster results with fewer errors.

3. Listen to your oldies.

Your brain is constantly trying to process new data, so listening to familiar songs or ambient music is best for concentration. Anything too new, and your brain will be running extra hard in the background, even if you are trying to focus on that report.

(P3) In short, music can help amplify your productivity, especially when you’re strategic with when you choose to listen to it. When you do, quality headphones like the CES-honored A-Audio Legacy Noise Cancelling Headphones are a great way to further reduce distractions. This set is particularly useful for its ability to switch between passive audio, bass enhanced, and active noise cancellation modes, allowing you to curate your audio for optimal productivity.

Vitamins

[Health ★★★]

vitamins-title

(P1) Vitamins are substances that the body needs to survive.  Different kinds of vitamins provide the body with different benefits.  For example, vitamin B helps the skin stay healthy.  Teeth and bones need vitamin D.  Vitamin K assists with making new blood.

(P2) Luckily for us, vitamins are commonly found in nature and in the food we eat.   For example, milk and fish have large amounts of vitamin B12.  Fruit and vegetables usually have some amount of vitamin C.  Many people don’t have the time or energy to eat healthy foods all the time.  As a result, they need to take pills called multivitamins or vitamin supplements.

(P3) Multivitamin companies make a lot of money from selling these pills.  Their annual global revenue is around $68 billion.  Many consumers think that multivitamins can help maintain a healthy lifestyle.  But is it dangerous to take too many vitamins?

(P4) Several scientists and organizations are worried that people are taking too many vitamins.  The World Health Organization (WHO) has told consumers that excessive vitamin A might cause birth defects.  The National Cancer Institute found that people who took too much vitamin E had an increased risk of cancer.  Some doctors have cautioned patients that taking excessive vitamin C can make people very sick.  Scientists and health professionals have started to understand the reason for these problems.  Bodies that are too full of one vitamin have no room for other vitamins.

(P5) Nutritionists say that the best way for consumers to avoid overdoing their vitamins is to eat healthier food.  They recommend that vitamin purchasers get more information.  For example, they advise using the Internet to find out more about their own diets and what vitamins they really need.  You should also consult with your doctor for advice on healthy eating.  Finally, always read the package on any multivitamin to make sure it doesn’t overload your body.

10 tips to healthy eating

[Health ★★★★]

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

1. Eat a Variety of Foods

You need more than 40 different nutrients for good health and no single food can supply them all. Today’s food supply makes it easy to eat a wide variety of foods whether or not you are buying fresh foods to cook, taking advantage of ready-prepared dishes and meals, or buying “take-away” foods. Balance your choice over time! If you have a high-fat lunch, have a low-fat dinner. If you eat a large serving of meat at dinner one day, perhaps choose fish the next day.

2. Base your diet on plenty of foods rich in carbohydrates

Most people do not eat enough of foods such as bread, pasta, rice, other cereals, and potatoes. More than half the calories in your diet should come from these foods. Try whole grain bread, pasta, and other whole grain cereals, too, to increase your fiber intake.

3. Enjoy plenty of fruits and vegetables

Most of us do not eat enough of these foods either although they provide important protective nutrients. Try to eat at least five servings a day and if you do not enjoy them at first, try some new recipes or see what ready prepared dishes are available in the supermarket.

4. Maintain a healthy body weight and feel good

The weight that is right for you depends on many factors including your sex, height, age and heredity. Being overweight increases your risk of a wide range of diseases including heart disease and cancer. Excess body fat results when you eat more calories than you need. These extra calories can come from any caloric nutrient like protein, fat, carbohydrate or alcohol, but fat is the most concentrated source of calories. Physical activity is a good way of increasing the energy (calories) you expend each day and it can make you feel good. The message is simple: if you are gaining weight, you need to eat less and be more active.

5. Eat moderate portions

If you keep portion sizes reasonable, it’s easier to eat all the foods you enjoy without having to eliminate any. For example, some reasonable serving sizes are 100g of meat, one medium piece of fruit, half a cup of raw pasta and 50ml of ice-cream. Ready-prepared meals can offer a handy means of portion control and they often have the calorie values on the pack to help those who are counting. If you are eating out, you could share a portion with a friend.

6. Eat regularly

Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can lead to out-of-control hunger, often resulting in helpless overeating. Snacking between meals can help curb hunger, but don’t eat so much as to substitute for proper meals. Don’t forget to count your snacks as part of your total calorie intake.

7. Drink plenty of fluids

Adults need to drink at least 1.5 liters of fluid a day! Or more if it’s very hot or they are physically active. Plain tap water is obviously a good source of liquid but variety can be both pleasant and healthy. Alternative choices are juices, soft drinks, tea, coffee, milk etc.

8. Get on the move

As we have seen, too many calories and not enough activity can result in weight gain. Moderately physical activity helps burn off those extra calories. It is also good for the heart and circulatory system and for general health and well-being. So, make physical activity part of your daily routine. Use the stairs instead of the elevator (up and down!). Go for a walk in your lunch break. You don’t have to be an athlete to get on the move!

9. Start now!

Gradual changes in your lifestyle are much easier to make than major changes all at once. For three days, write down the foods and drinks you consume at meals and as snacks – Do you have too few fruits and or portions of vegetables? To start with, try to eat just one extra piece of fruit and vegetables a day. Are your favorite foods high in fat and making you gain weight? Don’t eliminate those foods and feel miserable, but try to choose low-fat options or eat smaller portions. And start using the stairs at work!

10. It’s all about balance

There are no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ foods, only good or bad diets. Don’t feel guilty about the foods you love, rather eat them in moderation and choose other foods to provide the balance and variety that are vital to good health.

Are chia seeds the answer to weight loss?

[Health ★★★★]

chia-seeds-flax

(P1) It’s no secret that chia seeds are a powerful superfood. Through the years, people have eagerly added them to a variety of foods, from smoothies and yogurts to oats and fruit. With three times more iron than spinach and twice the amount of protein of any other seed or grain, it comes as no surprise that their very name means “strength”.

(P2) This member of the sage family also fills the body with antioxidants, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and potassium galore. For all of these reasons, chia seeds are considered to be an incredible source of ongoing energy.

(P3) As if this isn’t incredible enough, it gets even better if you’re looking to lose weight. If you haven’t already, consider heading out to purchase these amazing seeds because they do wonders when it comes to shedding pounds. In fact, chia seeds are frequently referred to as a “dieter’s dream” for their ability to help people see the numbers on the scale drop.

(P4) First of all, because chia seeds are jam-packed with the aforementioned nutrients, dieters can be assured that they won’t sacrifice important minerals and essential fatty acids during their weight loss process. As the body adjusts to reduced portions and cleaner eating choices, chia seeds help to offset any potential nutritional deficits that a dieter might experience.

(P5) Additionally, because chia seeds are super absorbent, or hydrophilic, they have the ability to bulk foods up. Interestingly, the tiny seeds can hold up to 12 times their weight in water, and they can do so in less than 10 minutes. So what’s this have to do with weight loss?

(P6) As any person trying to lose weight knows, the hunger pains that accompany the new lifestyle aren’t any fun. Chia seeds to the rescue! Because they add such incredible bulk to foods, a person is able to enjoy a feeling of fullness, all while consuming fewer calories. When chia seeds are added to a typical serving of food, for example, a dieter actually ends up consuming about half the calories, thanks to the fact that the seeds displace calories and fat, all without compromising the good flavor of the food they’re added to.

(p7) In fact, licensed nutritionist Lisa Goldberg says that chia seeds are ideal for achieving weight loss goals. She says that in addition to their ability to absorb water, they’re also a high-fiber source (four grams per tablespoon), both of which contribute to reducing weight. “You have that feeling of fullness in your stomach because when you wet chia seeds, they form a gelatinous substance that takes longer to digest,” Goldberg explains. “You’ll overeat less and tend to snack less. If you eat chia before a meal, you’ll eat less at the next meal. It packs a nutritional punch without adding a lot of food to your diet.”

(P8) The benefits don’t stop there. Since this “dieters dream” provides sustained energy levels, that’s great news when it comes to exercise, a vital component of achieving weight loss. Even non-dieters know that exercise can sometimes leave them feeling drained. However, chia seeds have the ability to keep energy levels soaring, allowing dieters to give their all during workouts, and still have copious amounts of energy left over.

(P9) Chia seeds are also affordable. Why spend insane amounts of money on weight loss products that often lower your bank account instead of your pant size? At about $8 for a one-pound bag (different states or stores vary, of course), a person can make about 17 ounces (which can last about four days) of chia gel for approximately $1. That’s a mere 25 cents daily, which certainly won’t break the bank.

(P10) Making chia seeds a part of a weight loss process is a wise decision. They’re a nutritional powerhouse that keeps energy levels going strong while helping people feel full and satisfied during their healthy transition.
