According to the American College of Cardiology Journal, August 5, 2014, a quick run can add years to your life. They followed 55,137 adults for 15 years. You reduce your chances of dying from heart disease and death.

The American Journal of Ophthalmology states that you can lower your risk of age related macular degeneration by eating a more Asian diet-seafood, beans, and produce. We as Americans have too much fat and sugar in our diet.  

According to Diabetologia published on August 4, 2014 you can control your Type 2 Diabetes by walking for an hour everyday for five days a week. If you drop your body weight  you reduce your blood pressure, and you fair better.

Some researchers believe that white beans stabilize your blood sugar swings. You may want to research this more.

Whole grains are suppose to boost our happiness hormones or serotonin says Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Whole grains are always good for you.

Some feel that organic produce contains more disease fighting properties when it is not all full of toxins. Non-organic vegetables may come from soil with cadmium, a toxic metal in fertilizer.

B feel that chocolate is good for you mood, vanilla calms your anxiety according to scientists at Chicago’s Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation. Then the University of Bridgeport feels that edamame soothes your stress chemical, dopamine.

Tumeric, common in Indian Food is thought to reduce cardiovascular events in your body. It may boost blood flower, reduce clots, etc. 

Diabetes is on the rise. 2 out of every 5 adults will develop diabetes. That’s scary. If you have a family history, get on the bandwagon now. Be sure to have your A1C checked, a blood test. There are problems with having diabetes. For example you could have eye problems, loose your vision,  get diabetic macula edema, have amputations down the line.

Go nuts with nuts, they are good for controlling type 2 diabetes according to PLOS One, published July 30, 2014.

Diabetic Recipes: diabetes.org/recipes

Are we smart enough? Kids who do treadmill tests, have stronger white matter, think better.   in Human Neuroscience published August 2014.

Know you family history. What did people die of or get as diseases or conditions? Do you have cancers in your family? High Blood pressure? High cholesterol? Diabetes, etc.

Apple Cider Vinegar: I have a friend who does this everyday. Drink it before bed or a meal. It can act like diabetes medications and reduce cancer risk according to some. A study was done where you take 4 t. apple cider vinegar, 8 t. water, and maybe a sugar substitute.

Cinnamon helps reduce blood sugar as does walking and yoga.

Metformin can reduce blood sugar, even breast cancer. Even weight loss surgery can reduce blood sugar.

Can’t sleep? Your blood sugar supposedly goes up when you cannot sleep.
