    It’s no secret that some racial minorities have higher rates of heart disease, certain types of cancer, and other health problems that can increase after age 50 or so.

  2. A Positive Outlook and Other Longevity Hacks

    A positive attitude is good for you and even increases the likelihood of living longer.

    Stress is a killer, but we’re not helpless against it. Regular physical exercise is one of our top defenses, no matter what age we are.

    March is Women’s History Month in the U.S., a great time to remember that fitness, as we know it, didn’t always exist.  For earlier generations, gyms weren’t common, very few people lifted weights, and hardly anyone exercised for health or fun.

  8.  10 Tips for a Healthy Holiday Season

    The holidays can be a “good news, bad news” situation for some people. The good news: We get time off from work, we get to see families and friends, and we get to eat our favorite foods. The bad news: Disrupted schedules, busy calendars, and extra calories can throw us off our healthy tracks. It doesn’t have to […]

  9. Exercise Helps Prevent, Treat Diabetes

    Fifteen years ago, Alan Rosenthal was a fit 60-year-old who had just returned from a bicycle trip through France. Then, a blood test revealed type 2 diabetes. His doctor gave him a three-day diet, exercise, and self-care course. The doctor also recommended a local trainer. And even though Alan knew his way around a gym, he adopted […]
