  • Lifestyle News

  • How fast senior citizens walk appears to be a better gauge of how long they will live than trying to do a more complicated analysis using age, sex, chronic conditions, smoking history, blood pressure, body mass index, and hospitalization.

    *  How long your parents lived does not affect how long you will live. Instead it is how you live your life that determines how old you will get, says research from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

    *  Low levels of vitamin D are associated with a markedly higher risk of heart attack and early death in a large study that involved more than 10,000 people. The researchers say those with the lowest levels of vitamin D have at least an 81 percent higher risk of death from heart disease than those with the optimal levels. Vitamin D deficiency has traditionally been linked with poor bone health. However, the results from several population studies indicate that a low level of this important vitamin may also be linked to a higher risk of ischemic heart disease, a designation that covers heart attack, coronary arteriosclerosis and angina.

    How we feel about ourselves and our ability to adapt to an accumulation of challenging life experiences may be as important – or more important – than health factors in determining if we survive to be 100 years old, according to research from the University of Georgia.

    High blood levels of the antioxidant alpha-carotene – most often acquired from eating fruits and vegetables - appear to be associated with a reduced risk of dying over a 14-year period, according to a report published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

    A national poll of Americans turning 100 years of age or older reveals these centenarians are staying connected to family, friends, current events, and are increasingly using the latest technologies, compared with 2 years ago.

    A new study of senior citizens has found that past satisfaction with life - even if it's simply recalling isolated career accomplishments - is the key to happiness in our oldest years.

    People today are living substantially longer than their parents’ generation, not because aging has been slowed or reversed, but because they are staying healthier.

    We are winning the war on cancer, declares the author of a new study that finds a downturn in cancer death rates since 1990. This favorable trend is mostly due to reductions in tobacco use, increased cancer screening to detect cancers early, and improvements in treatment for specific cancers.

    According to research reported in the Journal of the American Heart Association, senior citizens watch television over 200 hours a month, which increases their risk of death from cardiovascular disease by about 36 %.

    *  People who engage in regular physical activity are gaining an anti-aging weapon that will help them live longer lives. New research finds intensive exercise prevents aging of the cardiovascular system.

    *  Can the antibiotic rapamycin be the silver bullet? Will it extend the lives of humans as it has mice? Answers may come from new research at the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, a research facility of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, which just received a $5.2 million grant awarded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA).

    Eating oily fish weekly defends against stroke; supplements are less effective.  Results from use of long chain omega 3 fatty acid came from 38 studies involving nearly 800,000 individuals in 15 countries.  Eating at least two servings of oily fish a week is moderately but significantly associated with a reduced risk of stroke, finds a study published on bmj.com. But, taking fish oil supplements doesn't seem to have the same effect, say the researchers.  Regular consumption of fish and long chain omega 3 fatty acids has been linked with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease and current guidelines recommend eating at least two portions of fish a week, preferably oily fish like mackerel and sardines.

    *  Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center are willing to pay senior citizens willing to help them learn more about living a long healthy life. The new study, sponsored by the National Institutes on Aging, needs long-lived families to help.

    *  Age-adjusted death rates in the United States declined significantly between 2005 and 2006 and life expectancy hit another record high – 78.1 years, according to preliminary death statistics recently released by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.

    A study of the bones of a 113-year-old man, who has recently died at 114, reveals his longevity was due to a healthy lifestyle, a Mediterranean diet, a temperate climate and regular physical activity, rather than any genetic modifications.

    Labor Day is becoming a more important holiday for senior citizens, as a larger percentage of Americans age 65 and older are joining the workforce. Older Americans are the fastest growing age group of American workers and this is expected to continue.

    A report released recently shows life expectancy continues to increase and the gap between women, who live the longest, and men has narrowed for the second year in a row.

    Over 36.3 million Americans are aged 65 and over. Three in five people in this age group are women. Over the next forty years, the number of people aged 65 and older is expected to double, while the number of people aged 85 and older is expected to triple.

    *  A news story from the Korean Times says South Korea will have the highest proportion of senior citizens in the world by 2050 – 37.3 percent. They project to beat Japan (36.5%), Italy (34.4%), and the U.S. (21.1%).

    *  With the Internet becoming an increasingly important resource for informed decisions about health and health care options, a recent national survey of older Americans by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that less than a third (31%) of senior citizens (age 65 and older) have ever gone online, but that more than two-thirds (70%) of the next generation of seniors (50-64 year-olds) have done so.

  • Over 40 million Americans are over the age of 65!
