from MSNBC    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While antidepressants are often prescribed after a traumatic brain injury to help patients deal with the emotional fallout from their ordeal, new research suggests these medications could also help the brain itself heal. A new study found that antidepressants can help brain cells grow and survive after brain trauma, and can even lead to improved memory and brain function. More

Too Many Parents Think Injuries Are 'Part of the Game'
from HealthDay News via Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

"Trying to choose" a single best exercise is "like trying to condense the entire field" of exercise science, said one expert. But when pressed, he suggested one of the foundations of old-fashioned calisthenics: the burpee, in which you drop to the ground, kick your feet out behind you, pull your feet back in and leap up as high as you can.

BMI May Not Be Telling the Whole Truth
from Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Sometime later this year, the CDC will release its latest accounting of the nation's weight problem, as measured by the body mass index, or BMI. This much we know already: It won't be a pretty picture. The last census reckoned that a third of American adults are overweight, meaning their BMI lies between 25 and 30. Roughly another third weigh in with BMIs over 30 — the demarcation line that brands them as obese. More

Joint-replacement patients these days are younger and more active than ever before. Many active middle-agers are wearing out their joints with marathons, triathlons, basketball and tennis and suffering osteoarthritis years earlier than previous generations.
