    Bad News For Seniors That Love French Fries
    There is bad news for french fry lovers.  An eight year study of 4,400 older people which was published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that those who ate french fries or hash browns more than two times per week were at least twice as likely to die prematurely than those who were non partakers.  Unfried versions like baked or mashed potatoes weren’t linked with mortality.

    Salt Leads To Obesity, And Can Cause Other Unexpected Health Problems
    We all know that eating too much salt is not good for us but it’s hard to avoid it given the amount that is put in most processed and fast foods.  A recent study which was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation found, not surprisingly, that when presenting participants with three different diet regimens, the ones who followed the one with the most salt in it gained the most weight.  However, surprisingly, the saltiest diets made people the most hungry and those in the high salt diet

    Losing Weight Can Help Those With Osteoarthritis
    Millions of Americans have osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage in joints such as the knee to deteriorate.  Weight loss, however, has been shown to slow the progression of this debilitating condition.  Researchers followed 640 overweight or obese people with the condition for four years and MRI scans showed that participants who lost weight of 10% or more had the healthiest knees.  Those losing 5-10% of their body weight also saw some improvement.  About Richard Kuehn and Family inHome

    Exercise Can Mitigate Gene Which Makes Some People More Prone To Obesity
    There is no question that genes play a large part in our propensity for getting many diseases and being obese.  However, a new study which was published in the Journal PLOS Genetics found that one in six people have a gene which tends to make them obese.  However, it found that exercise appears to counter this significantly.  Those adding an hour or more per week of exercise who had this gene reduced their body mass index by 33%.

    Dog Owners Get 22 Minutes Per Day More Exercise Than Non Dog Owners
    Having a regular exercise routine is extremely important for seniors.  Lack of exercise can lead to obesity which, in turn, can lead to many health issues like diabetes, heart disease and strokes.  A recent study which was published in the Journal BMC Public Health found that dog owners spent an extra 22 minutes per day walking than non dog owners. This resulted in them taking 2,760 more steps per day than seniors that were not dog owners. About Richard Kuehn and Family inHome Caregiving After
