When we think about health, diet and exercise are typically the first things that come to mind. The double-blind study, published this week in the journal Scientific Reports, examined the effectiveness of optimal nutrition and exercise to enhance fitness and cognitive performance among a population of active-duty men and women in the U.S. Air Force. Researchers divided the 148 study participants into two groups for 12 weeks. Both groups performed the same training program, which included a balanced exercise program comprised of aerobic and resistance training performed five days per week. In addition to the training program , one group was given a prototype nutritional drink, the other group received a placebo. The drug, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Yervoy, has offered some hope to people with advanced skin cancers, though a study of patients with advanced, inoperable melanoma showed it extended survival only four months on average. Did you know that water can help burn fat and keep you healthy? And that 70% of our brain is made up of the same water that is so critical to our body’s proper functioning?

Dermatologists prescribe vitamin A creams in varying strengths for conditions such as acne, oily skin, wrinkles or even thickened skin.

A non-peer-reviewed study published on October 28, 2020, found aÂ variant of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus that emerged in early summer 2020 has since spread to multiple European countries. Taking part in 30- to 60-minute aerobic and muscle-strengthening sessions three to five times weekly can improve mental health, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But if fish isn’t your favorite, there’s good news: MIND diet researchers couldn’t find proof that having it more than once a week added extra benefits for the brain. In July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported more than 16,000 infections and 86 deaths tied to meat and poultry processing. But those numbers are almost certainly an undercount. Only 28 states provided data to the C.D.C., and many states and food processing companies have refused to provide case totals. Other large outbreaks have emerged on farms, in fruit or vegetable processing facilities and at plants where pet food is made.
