Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 6 Daily Habits to Slash Heart Disease Risk by 80%

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 6 Daily Habits to Slash Heart Disease Risk by 80%:

  • Embracing a diet rich in whole, plant-based foods every day.
  • Ensuring a minimum of 6 hours of sleep per day, with an ideal range of 7 to 9 hours.
  • Engaging in at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week.
  • Steering clear of tobacco and alcohol consumption (a two-part habit).
  • Prioritizing social interactions for overall well-being.

The World Health Organization’s study highlights that approximately 80% of cases involving heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes could potentially be averted by consistently practicing these six daily habits.

While acknowledging that these percentages are estimates, Schwarzenegger expresses optimism about the promising nature of the findings. “Estimates are estimates, but anything close to an 80 percent improvement is worth the change,” shared Schwarzenegger. Notably, the majority of these habits require commitment and consistency rather than financial investment.

Schwarzenegger underscores the importance of not overwhelming oneself by attempting to adopt all these habits simultaneously. Instead, he advises a gradual approach, suggesting, “But here’s the real secret: if you want to see improvements, don’t take on too much at once. That’s how habits fail. Instead, focus on building one or two habits at a time. Once the changes feel automatic, then you can add more.” This strategic and incremental method, according to Schwarzenegger, ensures a higher likelihood of sustained success in incorporating these heart-healthy habits into one’s lifestyle.

The complete extent of the damage caused by space on astronauts’ red blood cells

The human body is not adapted for life in space, and this is evident in our blood. Since humans began spending prolonged periods beyond Earth, researchers have consistently observed a peculiar and persistent decline in red blood cells among astronauts. This phenomenon, known as ‘space anemia,’ had its cause shrouded in mystery until recently. Some experts believed it was a short-term effect—a temporary adjustment to fluid changes in our bodies under microgravity.

Weight and COVID-19 Immunity: Vaccination vs. Infection

A recent study found that excess weight affects how the immune system responds to COVID-19, showing differences between post-infection and post-vaccination immunity. Led by Marcus Tong from the University of Queensland, the research suggests that being overweight, not just obese, makes SARS-CoV-2 infections more severe and changes the immune response. (more…)

Study Shows Higher Obesity-Related Cancer Mortality in Areas With More Fast Food

Communities with easy access to fast food were 77% more likely to have high levels of obesity-related cancer mortality, based on data from a new cross-sectional study of more than 3,000 communities.

Although increased healthy eating has been associated with reduced risk of obesity and with reduced cancer incidence and mortality, access to healthier eating remains a challenge in communities with less access to grocery stores and healthy food options (food deserts) and/or easy access to convenience stores and fast food (food swamps).

In addition, data on the association between food deserts and swamps and obesity-related cancer mortality are limited.

“We felt that the study was important given the fact that obesity is an epidemic in the United States, and multiple factors contribute to obesity, especially adverse food environments,” Dr. Bevel said. Also, I lived in these areas my whole life, and saw how it affected underserved populations. There was a story that needed to be told, so we’re telling it,”.

Intermittent fasting and an early meal may help to prevent type 2 diabetes

Liam Davenport

Intermittent fasting with time-restricted early eating can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes in high-risk individuals, according to the results of a randomised controlled study published in Nature Medicine.

Intermittent fasting plus early time-restricted eating was associated with significant improvement in glucose control compared with caloric restriction alone at 6 months, while both interventions were associated with improved cardiovascular risk markers and reduced BMI compared with standard weight loss advice.

“Following a time-restricted intermittent fasting diet may help reduce the chances of developing type 2 diabetes,”  says lead author Leonie K. Heilbronn, Ph.D., University of Adelaide in Adelaide, Australia.

U.S. approves 1st vaccine for RSV after decades of attempts

The U.S. approved the first vaccine for RSV on Wednesday, shots to protect older adults against a respiratory virus that’s most notorious for attacking babies but endangers their grandparents, too.

The Food and Drug Administration decision makes GSK’s shot, called Arexvy, the first of several potential vaccines in the pipeline for RSV to be licensed anywhere.

The move sets the stage for adults 60 and older to get vaccinated this fall — but first, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention must decide if every senior really needs RSV protection or only those considered at high risk from the respiratory syncytial virus. CDC’s advisers will debate that question in June.
