Long life

"It's part of the lifestyle here. You work in an office and then you retire to the farm. It's just the next stage in life," Kuroiwa says. As it turns out, it's a very long life.

 

A healthy diet, regular physical activity, extended work years and aggressive government intervention have helped the Nagano region produce the longest life expectancy in , which in turn is the longest in the world. That marks a remarkable turnaround for an area that, as recently as the early 1980s, had the highest rate of strokes in Japan.

 

Women in Nagano prefecture, an area slightly smaller than Connecticut, can expect to live an average of 87.2 years, while men can look forward to living 80.9 years, according to the latest data from Japan's Ministry of , Labor and Welfare. (In comparison, life expectancy in Connecticut averages 78.6 years for men and 82.9 for women. Hawaii has the highest life expectancy in the U.S., at 78 for men and 84.7 for women.)

 

The lifestyle in Nagano, home of the 1998 Winter Olympics, has also produced some of the lowest per capita medical costs in Japan. That saves consumers and taxpayers millions of dollars a year.

 

En español l Takami Kuroiwa looks forward to weekends — not so he can relax with a little golf or TV, but to put in 12-hour days on the family farm. His regular job as a tourism manager provides a comfortable living, but raising his own fruit and vegetables is part of a lifelong routine.

 

 

Researchers randomly assigned more than 4,200 women, ages 60 to 80, to eat either a Mediterranean supplemented with extra virgin olive oil or with nuts, or a low-fat control diet.

 

“We found a strong effect of a long-term dietary intervention with the Mediterranean diet and extra virgin olive oil on incidence,” said Dr. Miguel Angel Martinez-Gonzalez, a researcher at the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain.

 

Compared to the control diet group, the Mediterranean plus olive oil group had a 68 percent lower risk of developing breast cancer over a follow-up of about five years.

 

The women, who joined the study in 2003 to 2009, were all at high risk of heart disease, and their average mass index, or BMI, was 30, which considered is obese. Obesity itself is a risk factor for breast cancer.

 

MONDAY, Sept. 14, 2015 (HealthDay News) — Eating a Mediterranean diet, rich with plant foods, fish and olive oil, has been found to be good for the heart, the brain and overall health. Now, a new study out of Spain suggests the diet supplemented with olive oil may also reduce the risk of breast cancer.

Is It Safe To Your ?

Knuckle

Is it safe to crack your knuckles ? Question asked you many people. Well, your joints, including those in your knuckles, are surrounded by a membrane called the synovial membrane, which forms a capsule around the ends of your bones. Inside this membrane is synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant and shock absorber so your bones don’t grind together when you move.

When you “crack” your knuckles, or any other joint, it expands the space between your bones, creating negative pressure that draws synovial fluid into the new gap.

This influx of synovial fluid is what causes the popping sound and feeling when you crack a knuckle.1 If you continually crack your knuckles, the synovial membrane and the surrounding ligaments will loosen, making it easier and easier for your joints to crack.

More than 20 years ago, I co-authored a paper titled “Cracking down on neck cracking,” which was published in the journal American Family Physician.2 In it, I argued that self-manipulation may lead to lax ligaments. Personally, I don’t think it’s wise to crack your joints on a regular basis, and research suggests it could have some significant repercussions.

Is Cracking Your Knuckles Associated with Arthritis?

The biggest concern most people have about cracking their knuckles is that it could lead to arthritis, specifically osteoarthritis. If you have osteoarthritis, the cartilage within your joints is progressively being damaged, and the synovial fluid is typically reduced as well.

 

Question: Why do people crack knuckles?

Answer: Cracked knuckles feel looser and enjoy more mobility for a while after cracking. It is also possible that as kids people realize that cracking knuckles produces a funny noise and may repeat cracking just to produce the sound. This may make some people habitual “knuckle crackers”.

Question: What causes the sound?

Answer: Joints (knuckles) are covered by a capsule (the joint capsule or synovial capsule). Within the space of this capsule the synovial fluid is contained which acts as a lubricant and also contains nutrients for the adjacent bone surfaces. A variety of gases are continuously dissolved in this fluid. When one cracks a knuckle, the stretching of the capsule lowers the pressure inside the joint and creates a vacuum which is filled by the gas previously dissolved in the synovial fluid. This creates a “bubble” which then bursts producing the characteristic “popping” or “cracking” sound. It takes a while until these gases are re-dissolved in the synovial fluid which explains why knuckles cannot be “re-cracked” immediately.

Question: Are there any side effects to cracking knuckles?

There is no evidence that cracking knuckles causes any damage such as arthritis in the joints. However, a couple of reports in the medical literature are available associating knuckle cracking with injury of the ligaments surrounding the joint or dislocation of the tendons ( attachments of muscles to bones) which improved with conservative treatment. A study found that after many years of cracking habitual knuckle crackers may have reduced grip strength compared with people not cracking their knuckles.

2. They are a good source of vitamin C.  While most people know that vitamin C is important to help ward off cold and flu viruses, few people are aware that this crucial vitamin plays an important role in bone and tooth formation, digestion, and blood cell formation. It helps accelerate wound , produces collagen which helps maintain skin’s youthful elasticity, and is essen­tial to helping us cope with stress. It even appears to help protect our against toxins that may be linked to cancer.

 

3.  They contain Vitamin D which is critical for immune system and overall health at this time of year.  Both a vitamin and a hormone, vitamin D is primarily made in our bodies as a result of getting adequate sunlight. You may have heard about seasonal affective disorder (or SAD, as it is also called), which is linked to inadequate sunlight and therefore a vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D plays an important role in our levels, moods, and helps to build healthy bones, heart, nerves, skin, and teeth, and it supports the thyroid gland.

 

4.  Sweet potatoes contain iron. Most people are aware that we need the mineral iron to have adequate energy, but iron plays other important roles in our body, including red and white blood cell production, resistance to stress, proper im­mune functioning, and the metabolizing of protein, among other things.

 

5.  Sweet potatoes are a good source of mag­nesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral. Magnesium is necessary for healthy artery, blood, bone, heart, muscle, and nerve function, yet experts estimate that approximately 80 percent of the popula­tion in North America may be deficient in this important mineral.

 

1.  They are high in vitamin B6.  Vitamin B6 helps reduce the chemical homocysteine in our bodies. Homocysteine has been linked with degenerative diseases, including heart attacks.

 

 

 

dental-plaque-and-tartar-cnri

is a yellowish brown calcified material formed on the surface of teeth. It contains hardened mineral deposits of the saliva, bacterial debris and plaque that make it porous and crusty. Chalky substance called tartar is caused due to the continuous accumulation of minerals from saliva on the teeth. When the tartar build up is ignored for a long time, it causes bad breath, yellowing and browning of the teeth.

 

Tartar is harmful as it is hard and porous. This porosity causes to build up several harmful bacteria inside the tartar. It therefore causes gum diseases, cavities in the teeth and also loss of teeth. If tartar is not removed, it keeps on accumulating and calcifying. If plaque is not cleared from the teeth, it hardens into tartar, which causes damage to the enamel and increases the risk of gum disease. Tartar damages the teeth and gums, which can lead to severe diseases like gingivitis, impacts bone health by causing bone degeneration or even heart disease in severe cases.

 

Tartar cannot be easily removed and often requires professional help. Dentists may need to remove tartar using various instruments by scaling. The process may require plenty of patience and is also painful, if the tartar has been accumulated over the years and has affected the gum line. The best prevention is through proper oral care, brushing vigilantly and flossing regularly. Some home for tartar removal and preventing it from growing further are as follows:

 

Brushing your teeth properly after each meal prevents the formation of tartar. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush for brushing and brush at all angles, over all the tooth surfaces so that the teeth are thoroughly cleaned. Always remember to hold the brush at a 45 degree angle to the gum line.

 

Brushing teeth every day, proper flossing, oral hygiene, regular dental checkups are important to maintain good oral health. Neglecting any of these can really create a havoc on teeth and gums. Improper brushing can lead to plaque formation that when ignored forms tartar, a solidified plaque. This would finally lead to several teeth and gum diseases. Therefore, it is important to know how to remove tartar from teeth so as to prevent the other threatening oral diseases.

 

 

Shingles

 

It is extremely important to begin treating your condition as soon as possible with the best . I believe in a natural approach to cure Shingles, as taking drugs or chemical lotions can be quite harmful for your .

 

One of the most beneficial Shingles Natural Remedies is the oatmeal bath. Baths are great because you can soak your entire body underwater. Plus, good quality oatmeal blended up and added to a bathtub can stop itchiness, burning, and has a effect on the blisters.

 

Neem Leaves is also a very useful Shingles remedy. You can find Neem Leaves at your local foods store. You just simply add a few of them to a lukewarm bath, mix it up, and enjoy the added healing effects.

Shingles isn't a fun virus to get. It starts as Chicken Pox, which people most commonly experienced as a child, but adults can get it too. At a later stage in life, the virus can re-emerge itself as a painful rash called Shingles.
