[ATTN] Weight Watchers: The Most SHOCKING Thing I’ve Heard All Year...
Alex Reid here with your final Monday roundup of 2019.
As we step into this new decade, let’s talk about the incredible possibilities of 2020.
If you’re like over one-third of Americans, you might be looking to shed a few pounds for the coming year.
One of the most common resolutions is “weight loss.”
I get it. Folks want to look good.
When people look good, they tend to feel good!
Whether you’ve got...
- Summer swimsuit plans...
- Your wedding vow renewal...
- The “BIG” high school class reunion...
- Or you just want to be healthy...
Weight loss can influence how folks look and, more importantly, feel.
And with obesity on the rise, weight has become an increasing topic in the health world.
According to a new study, weight loss may lessen the risk of this disease...
Let me explain.
According to a study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI), women who lose weight after age 50 may have a lower risk of breast cancer.
If you, your spouse, or a loved one is a 50+ woman, this is definitely a story worth hearing. You see, doctors have known for years that obesity is linked with breast cancer.
But now with this story breaking, scientists are really seeing that weight loss might have the reverse effect as well!
If you need some motivation for your 2020 weight goals, this is incentive enough.
This time of year always feels magical to me, like anything is possible. There’s just something in the air…
And I want you to keep those great vibes going as we embark on this new season in life.
New research suggests that air pollution may take a toll on folks’ mental health.
In fact, a recent study shows that air pollution may be linked to depression and suicide risk. By now, you know I want you to live a long, healthy, happy life.
And it’s my job to give you the latest news on anything that could promote that (or prevent that).
Newsweek adds more on the study:
The researchers found a link between being in contact with PM2.5—or particulate matter measuring up to 2.5 micrometers in diameter—for at least six months. To give an idea of the size, human hair measures between 40 to 120 micrometers. The researchers defined this as long-term exposure. A 10 microgram per metre cubed spike in the average level of long-term PM 2.5 was linked with a 10 percent increase in the likelihood of experiencing depression.
They also found an association between short-term exposure to PM 10—or particulate matter measuring up to 10 micrometers in diameter—and suicide. The risk of suicide rose by 2 percent for each 10 microgram per metre cubed increase of PM10 over the course of three days.
According to scientists, sources of PM 10 and 2.5 include “fossil-fuel-powered cars, dust from industrial activities, and wood burning and forest fires.”
So, folks, stay safe (and read more here).
