Is Fat All that Bad?
Is Fat All that Bad?
Fat has gotten a really bad rep lately. But not all dietary fats are created equal. Actually, the majority of fats are good for you. The fats to avoid are trans fats (mainly partially hydrogenated oil) and saturated fats. Even those fats – small quantities of saturated fats and naturally occurring trans fats, may be beneficial. There are fats that are essential for good health. These are found in fish, olive oil, nuts, avocado, grass fed beef and dairy products. The less processed the food, the healthier it will be in general, including its fat content. So avoid trans fats of any kind and partially hydrogenated oils (read the labels and ask questions when eating out).

Long-Term Sedentary Jobs Linked To Cancer, Heart Disease Risk.
Long-Term Sedentary Jobs Linked To Cancer, Heart Disease Risk. The Wall Street Journal  (6/21, Lukits, Subscription Publication) reports that, according to a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, sedentary behaviors, particularly those that require minimal energy expenditure, may increase the risk of developing chronic diseases including colon cancer and heart disease. Researchers collected data from 2005 to 2007 on 918 colon-cancer patients and 1,021 controls and found that those who spent 10 or more years in sedentary jobs had a twofold risk of colon cancer and a 44% increased risk of rectal cancer, compared with those whose occupations were never sedentary.
Notably, those with jobs requiring heavy physical activity had a 44% decreased risk of colon cancer. If you are stuck in front a computer for a better part of the day, try Tai Chi exercises every 2 hours. You do not need much space to do them and there is no equipment involved. Tai Chi has been evaluated as a potential treatment of many diseases. A recent review of the literature revealed no benefit for chronic and cardiovascular diseases (Lee MS and Ernst E. Systematic reviews of t’ai chi: An overview. Br J Sports Med 2011 May 16; [e-pub ahead of print]. (http://dx.doi.org/10.1136/bjsm.2010.080622)

Given the nature of Tai Chi (which is gentle, rhythmic, and nonspecific) its lack of specific benefit for metabolic and cardiovascular conditions is not surprising. However, its benefits in improving balance and therefore, preventing falls and improving psychological health are clear. It is also a great gentle physical activity. Watch the Intro to Tai Chi video to learn more. The Neck exercise video will relax these tight neck muscles which is a common occurrence when looking at a computer screen for a long time. And do not forget to walk – at least half an hour a day. Many more exercises are available on the Lifestyle In Motion DVD. Long-Term Sedentary Jobs Linked To Cancer, Heart Disease Risk.
