Daily breather may ease hot flashes (9/29/2012)

Regular, daily practice of calm or paced breathing may ease hot flashes, shows a new study published online in Menopause, the journal of the North American Menopause Society. ...> Full Article


Researchers solve key part of old mystery in generating muscle mass (9/28/2012)

Researchers solve key part of old mystery in generating muscle massWorking with mice, Johns Hopkins researchers have solved a key part of a muscle regeneration mystery plaguing scientists for years, adding strong support to the theory that muscle mass can be built without a complete, fully functional supply of muscle stem cells. ...> Full Article


Selective grazing and aversion to olive and grape leaves achieved in goats and sheep (9/20/2012)

Selective grazing and aversion to olive and grape leaves achieved in goats and sheepResearchers from the Research Group on Ruminants led by Elena Albanell, lecturer in Animal and Food Science at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, have successfully achieved to prevent sheep and goats from chewing on the young leaves of olive trees and grapevines when grazing. By using the natural mechanism of conditioned taste aversion, researchers redirected the food preferences of ruminants, making them more willing to eliminate undesirable plants from these types of pastures. ...> Full Article


'Brain training' may lessen cognitive impairments associated with coronary bypass surgery (9/19/2012)

Each year in Quebec, nearly 6,000 people undergo coronary bypass surgery. Recovery is long and quality of life is greatly affected, in particular because most patients experience cognitive deficits that affect attention and memory for weeks or even months after the surgery. However, cognitive training helps to significantly reduce these postoperative complications. ...> Full Article

Mild increases in thyroid-stimulating hormone not harmful in the elderly (9/16/2012)

There is no evidence to link mildly elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone levels to an increase in mortality among the elderly, according to a recent study accepted for publication in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. The findings suggest that reflexively treating mild elevations of TSH in those of advanced age is unnecessary. ...> Full Article


Landmark survey finds adaptation to climate change on smallholder farms taking root (9/10/2012)

Smallholder farmers across East Africa have started to embrace climate-resilient farming approaches and technologies, according to new research recently published by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security. At the same time, the survey evidence suggests that many of the changes in farming practices are incremental, rather than transformative in nature, and that high levels of food insecurity prevent many from making all of the changes needed in order to cope with a changing climate. ...> Full Article


More grandparents fill caregiver role (9/9/2012)

Grandparents, an increasingly important source of child care in the United States, vary greatly in the kind of care they provide, depending on their age, resources, and the needs of their children. A new study shows that 60 percent of grandparents provided some care for their grandchildren during a 10-year period, and 70 percent of those who did provided care for two years or more. ...> Full Article

A study carried out by Dr. Louis Bherer, Ph.D., laboratory director and researcher at the Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montreal, an institution affiliated with University of Montreal, has shown that all seniors, even those considered frail, can enjoy the benefits of exercise in terms of their physical and cognitive faculties and quality of life and that these benefits appear after only three months. ...> Full Article

Health-care costs hit the elderly hard, diminish financial well-being (9/6/2012)

The protection of the savings of the elderly -- one of the primary goals of Medicare -- is under threat from a combination of spiraling health-care costs and increased longevity. As the government attempts to reduce Medicare costs, one suggestion is that the elderly could pay a larger proportion of the costs of their health care. But exactly how much would this be and what impact would it have on their finances? ...> Full Article

New physio guidelines for the elderly at risk of falls (9/2/2012)

Taking a fall in older life can not only result in injury, but also a potentially debilitating loss of confidence. But new guidelines for physiotherapists, co-compiled by a leading academic in the field from the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry (PCMD), University of Exeter, aim to refresh out-dated guidelines and introduce better direction for physiotherapists who work with elderly people at risk of falling. ...> Full Article
