“Canola” in Canola Oil Has Been an Acronym This Whole Time

  “Canola” in Canola Oil Has Been an Acronym This Whole Time How well do you know your pantry? Without looking, you already have some idea of what’s in there, even if you can’t produce an exact count. It’s stocked with cans of soup, boxes of cereal and uncooked pasta, and basic cooking ingredients should you be called on to contribute to a last-minute bake sale. Among those culinary staples should be cooking oil, which is found in practically every recipe that involves baking, frying, or sautéing. Now there isn’t one oil that can claim to be 'the healthiest' because each is used in a different way (although extra virgin olive oil, a key part of the Mediterranean diet, has been linked to weight loss and longevity).

What does the size of your arm say about you, other than how much you can bench? Maybe whether you will survive heart disease. A study in the American Journal of Cardiology looked at the upper arms of almost 600 older adults with cardiovascular disease and found a link between their circumferences

Doctors took measurements of two body parts in older patients and found that when one of them was bigger, those people were less likely to die of heart disease. What does the size of your arm say about you, other than how much you can bench? Maybe whether you will survive heart disease.

What does the size of your arm say about you, other than how much you can bench? Maybe whether you will survive heart disease.

A study in the American Journal of Cardiology looked at the upper arms of almost 600 older adults with cardiovascular disease and found a link between their circumferences — the distances around them — and survival rates. The researchers took measurements of the mid-upper arm and calf circumferences, two numbers which are used to help determine muscle mass, and studied the patients’ muscle function through their gait speed and grip strength. During a period of follow-up averaging about a year and a half, 72 of the adults, who were all at least 65 years old, had died, but those with higher circumferences had better outcomes.

The cornea of the eye is the only part of our body that has no blood supply. Thus, it is believed to be the reason for not growing from birth to death . That’s because the study linked says that the size of ossicle stapes at 70 years of age is possibly smaller than the one at birth.

Although the raw data suggested both upper arm and calf sizes are correlated with chances of dying of heart disease, the researchers wrote that only the arm measurement proved to be a “significant” capability to independently predict outcomes.

The Size Of This Body Part Is Linked To Your Death

  The Size Of This Body Part Is Linked To Your Death Doctors took measurements of two body parts in older patients and found that when one of them was bigger, those people were less likely to die of heart disease.A study in the American Journal of Cardiology looked at the upper arms of almost 600 older adults with cardiovascular disease and found a link between their circumferences — the distances around them — and survival rates.

Poor sleep is linked to higher blood pressure, which is a risk factor for heart disease.' 'I am a strong believer in the mind- body connection and have seen firsthand how exercise not only 'The quality and quantity of your social relationships has been linked overall health and a lower risk for death .

That’s because the study linked says that the size of ossicle stapes at 70 years of age is possibly smaller than the one at birth. The cornea of the eye is the only part of our body that has no blood supply. Thus, it is believed to be the reason for not growing from birth to death .

The researchers said the mid-upper arm circumference “could be a readily available and simple metric” for determining risk in older patients with heart disease.

When older people lose muscle mass and strength as they age, it’s referred to as sarcopenia and could be the result of a number of factors, including changes in hormones, less physical activity, chronic illness, neurological decline and poor nutrition, an article on the U.S. National Institutes of Health says. It can be dangerous, leading to a loss of function and weakness or even disability, and has been associated with chronic conditions like increased insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.

The suggested link between arm circumference, and thus muscle mass, and heart disease survival rates may not be surprising given that exercise has long been noted as a way to stave off or manage the condition. For people who are 60 and older, the American Heart Association says, “Excess weight causes your heart to work harder and increases the risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. Exercising regularly and eating smaller portions of nutrient-rich foods may help you maintain a healthy weight.”

President Kennedy isn't the only famous person to have lost a body part after death ; Einstein, Beethoven and Galileo are among many others who rest in pieces.

However, the truth of the matter is your body does not die in quite so sudden or so orderly a fashion — different parts die at different rates, and the rates are somewhat variable depending on both your individual body and the circumstance of your death .

Scientists Trick Fat Cells To Prevent Obesity .
Scientists may have found a way to manipulate fat cells to prevent obesity.About a third of American adults is obese, the study in the journal eLife explains, and it is about more than just physical appearance — obesity has been linked to serious health problems like cardiovascular disease and diabetes. For this project, the researchers manipulated something called the Hedgehog pathway, a signaling system that’s involved in cell development throughout the body, and they say it was successful at “suppressing obesity” in mice, representing a possible pharmaceutical route for the weight condition.
