Study: New Jersey Residents Have Longest Life Expectancy …

Posted: October 26, 2017 at 11:45 pm


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Good news for Garden State residents: You will live longer than most.

According to a new study, people who live in New Jersey have a longer life expectancy than anyone else in the country.

The study, conducted by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, also found thatwomen in Bergen County have the longest life expectancy in the state. Mentake second place behind Morris County.

CBS 2s Christine Sloan talked to seniors at the Midland Park Senior Center to spread the good news and to learn some of their secrets to longevity.

Just keep active, really never give up, one man told Sloan. Theres open spaces and you can walk as I do gardening, James Edwards, 77 added.

Honore Fontez, 73, told Sloane,I think [its] the affluence the socio-economic people have the opportunity to do good things.

One man told Sloan the secret to a long life is a good family life, while Eleanor Farrar,75 said yoga has helped her spiritually.

The report found thataccess to health is key, andthat reducing salt in your diet can help you live longer. Additionally, some of the biggest risk factors to good health aretobacco, high blood pressure and obesity, Sloan reported.

New Jersey does well [because] people are informed, fortunate [and] well-educated, Joan Campanelli, of County Nutrition and Wellness said.

Bergen County officials attribute their longer life expectancy especially for women to exercise at the senior centers.

Ithink there is more advantage for us like we come to any senior center, whether its in Fair Lawn or here, Kathleen Sylvester, 73, of Glen Rock told Sloan.

So according to the seniors Sloan talked to: Youll live longif you keep on moving.

Note: New York and Connecticut are also among the best states when it comes to life expectancy. Oklahoma and Mississippi are the worst.

Are you surprised that New Jersey tops the list when it comes to life expectancy? Let us know below.

PUBLISHED IN CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN NUTRITION (#CDN)...Skeletal Muscle Acute and Chronic Metabolic Response to Essential Amino Acid Supplementation in Hypertriglyceridemic Older Adults

Supplementation with essential amino acids plus arginine is a promising nutritional approach to decrease plasma triglyceride concentrations, which are an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease.

The authors of this study examined the effects of eight weeks of essential amino acids plus arginine supplementation on skeletal muscle basal metabolite concentrations. Moreover they looked at changes in metabolic response to acute essential amino acids plus arginine intake, emphasizing mitochondrial metabolism in adults with elevated triglycerides, to better understand the mechanisms of lowering plasma triglycerides.

You can read the complete study including the authors' findings and conclusions in Current Developments in Nutrition, #ASN's new open-access journal.

Study Published in #AJCN in Altmetric's Top 5% of Scored Research...Later Circadian Timing of Food intake is Associated with Increased Body Fat

Weight gain and obesity have reached alarming levels. Eating at a later clock hour is a newly described risk factor for adverse metabolic health; yet, how eating at a later circadian time influences body composition is unknown. Using clock hour to document eating times may be misleading owing to individual differences in circadian timing relative to clock hour.

The authors of this study found that the consumption of food during the circadian evening and/or night, independent of more traditional risk factors such as amount or content of food intake and activity level, plays an important role in body composition and is associated with increased body fat.

By John DonovanWebMD Feature

While you cant stop aging, you can, in a way, slow it down. The first step toward good health in your senior years: Eat right.

You have to feed your body good nutrition for it to run like its supposed to run. You have to have good maintenance, says Joan Salge Blake, a nutritionist and a professor at Boston University. You have to start treating your body like you do your cars and your home.

How Nutritional Needs Change as You Age

Do you need to change what and how you eat in your 50s, 60s, and beyond? Yes, though maybe not in ways you might think.You need fewer calories every decade, says Connie Bales, PhD, RD, associate director of the Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center at Durham VA Medical Center. "We move around less, we have less muscle, and our metabolic rate goes down."The challenge while eating less overall is to eat more nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, beans,...

Read the How Nutritional Needs Change as You Age article > >

Sometimes, you forget that your body is a well-oiled machine.

As we age, our bodies change -- not just in how they look, but how they work. Your digestion is not asefficient. You may not drink enough water because you dont feel as thirsty as you used to. Food may lose some of its taste -- for all sorts of reasons, including the medications you may be taking-- so you simply might not be interested in eating.

Chewing might be difficult. Or it may be physically hard to prepare a meal. Or youre just tired of eating by yourself.

When these things cause you not to eat well, your once well-oiled machine starts to sputter.

Talk with your doctor about any trouble you have as you try to eat a healthy diet. You may want to meet with a nutritionist, too. With a good health team, you can come up with a plan that helps get you back into eating well and exercising.

Exercise is critical, too, because being more active can jump-start your appetite.

By the time youre a senior, you probably know the basics of a healthy diet -- things like lots of fruits and vegetables, healthy proteins, whole grains, some dairy and healthy fats, and less salt.

Some foods are especially helpful for seniors who want to eat healthier. They include:

Water: Not a food, you say? Think of it as one. Many older people simply dont drink enough water because they dont feel as thirsty as they used to.

Water is so underappreciated. Our bodies are mostly water. If youre chronically dehydrated, just think of what your cells look like, says Robin Foroutan, a New York nutritionist. You cant think as clearly, you get fatigued more easily, you dont tolerate heat as well.

Alzheimer’s disease – Symptoms and causes – Mayo Clinic

Posted: October 7, 2017 at 4:47 am


Overview

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. At first, someone with Alzheimer's disease may notice mild confusion and difficulty remembering. Eventually, people with the disease may even forget important people in their lives and undergo dramatic personality changes.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia a group of brain disorders that cause the loss of intellectual and social skills. In Alzheimer's disease, the brain cells degenerate and die, causing a steady decline in memory and mental function.

Current Alzheimer's disease medications and management strategies may temporarily improve symptoms. This can sometimes help people with Alzheimer's disease maximize function and maintain independence for a little while longer. But because there's no cure for Alzheimer's disease, it's important to seek supportive services and tap into your support network as early as possible.

Alzheimer's disease care at Mayo Clinic

At first, increasing forgetfulness or mild confusion may be the only symptoms of Alzheimer's disease that you notice. But over time, the disease robs you of more of your memory, especially recent memories. The rate at which symptoms worsen varies from person to person.

If you have Alzheimer's, you may be the first to notice that you're having unusual difficulty remembering things and organizing your thoughts. Or you may not recognize that anything is wrong, even when changes are noticeable to your family members, close friends or co-workers.

Brain changes associated with Alzheimer's disease lead to growing trouble with:

Everyone has occasional memory lapses. It's normal to lose track of where you put your keys or forget the name of an acquaintance. But the memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease persists and worsens, affecting your ability to function at work and at home.

People with Alzheimer's may:

Alzheimer's disease causes difficulty concentrating and thinking, especially about abstract concepts like numbers.

Multitasking is especially difficult, and it may be challenging to manage finances, balance checkbooks and pay bills on time. These difficulties may progress to inability to recognize and deal with numbers.

Responding effectively to everyday problems, such as food burning on the stove or unexpected driving situations, becomes increasingly challenging.

Once-routine activities that require sequential steps, such as planning and cooking a meal or playing a favorite game, become a struggle as the disease progresses. Eventually, people with advanced Alzheimer's may forget how to perform basic tasks such as dressing and bathing.

Brain changes that occur in Alzheimer's disease can affect the way you act and how you feel. People with Alzheimer's may experience:

Many important skills are not lost until very late in the disease. These include the ability to read, dance and sing, enjoy old music, engage in crafts and hobbies, tell stories, and reminisce.

This is because information, skills and habits learned early in life are among the last abilities to be lost as the disease progresses; the part of the brain that stores this information tends to be affected later in the course of the disease. Capitalizing on these abilities can foster successes and maintain quality of life even into the moderate phase of the disease.

Scientists believe that for most people, Alzheimer's disease is caused by a combination of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that affect the brain over time.

Less than 5 percent of the time, Alzheimer's is caused by specific genetic changes that virtually guarantee a person will develop the disease.

Although the causes of Alzheimer's aren't yet fully understood, its effect on the brain is clear. Alzheimer's disease damages and kills brain cells. A brain affected by Alzheimer's disease has many fewer cells and many fewer connections among surviving cells than does a healthy brain.

As more and more brain cells die, Alzheimer's leads to significant brain shrinkage. When doctors examine Alzheimer's brain tissue under the microscope, they see two types of abnormalities that are considered hallmarks of the disease:

Tangles. Brain cells depend on an internal support and transport system to carry nutrients and other essential materials throughout their long extensions. This system requires the normal structure and functioning of a protein called tau.

In Alzheimer's, threads of tau protein twist into abnormal tangles inside brain cells, leading to failure of the transport system. This failure is also strongly implicated in the decline and death of brain cells.

Increasing age is the greatest known risk factor for Alzheimer's. Alzheimer's is not a part of normal aging, but your risk increases greatly after you reach age 65. The rate of dementia doubles every decade after age 60.

People with rare genetic changes linked to early-onset Alzheimer's begin experiencing symptoms as early as their 30s.

Your risk of developing Alzheimer's appears to be somewhat higher if a first-degree relative your parent or sibling has the disease. Scientists have identified rare changes (mutations) in three genes that virtually guarantee a person who inherits them will develop Alzheimer's. But these mutations account for less than 5 percent of Alzheimer's disease.

Most genetic mechanisms of Alzheimer's among families remain largely unexplained. The strongest risk gene researchers have found so far is apolipoprotein e4 (APoE4), though not everyone with this gene goes on to develop Alzheimer's disease. Other risk genes have been identified but not conclusively confirmed.

Many people with Down syndrome develop Alzheimer's disease. Signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's tend to appear 10 to 20 years earlier in people with Down syndrome than they do for the general population. A gene contained in the extra chromosome that causes Down syndrome significantly increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Women seem to be more likely than are men to develop Alzheimer's disease, in part because they live longer.

People with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) have memory problems or other symptoms of cognitive decline that are worse than might be expected for their age, but not severe enough to be diagnosed as dementia.

Those with MCI have an increased risk but not a certainty of later developing dementia. Taking action to develop a healthy lifestyle and strategies to compensate for memory loss at this stage may help delay or prevent the progression to dementia.

People who've had a severe head trauma seem to have a greater risk of Alzheimer's disease.

There's no lifestyle factor that's been definitively shown to reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease.

However, some evidence suggests that the same factors that put you at risk of heart disease also may increase the chance that you'll develop Alzheimer's. Examples include:

These risk factors are also linked to vascular dementia, a type of dementia caused by damaged blood vessels in the brain. Working with your health care team on a plan to control these factors will help protect your heart and may also help reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia.

Studies have found an association between lifelong involvement in mentally and socially stimulating activities and a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease. Low education levels less than a high school education appear to be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease.

Memory and language loss, impaired judgment, and other cognitive changes caused by Alzheimer's can complicate treatment for other health conditions. A person with Alzheimer's disease may not be able to:

As Alzheimer's disease progresses to its last stages, brain changes begin to affect physical functions, such as swallowing, balance, and bowel and bladder control. These effects can increase vulnerability to additional health problems such as:

Right now, there's no proven way to prevent Alzheimer's disease. Research into prevention strategies is ongoing. The strongest evidence so far suggests that you may be able to lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease by reducing your risk of heart disease.

Many of the same factors that increase your risk of heart disease can also increase your risk of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. Important factors that may be involved include high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, excess weight and diabetes.

The Mediterranean diet a way of eating that emphasizes fresh produce, healthy oils and foods low in saturated fat can lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and stroke. This diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Keeping active physically, mentally and socially may make your life more enjoyable and may also help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.
