Study finds 90% of American men are overfed

Researchers reported earlier this year in the journal "Frontiers of Public Health" that up to 76 percent of the world's population may be overfed. Now these same researchers have focused their efforts on data from 30 of the top developed countries, with even more alarming findings that up to 90 percent of adult males and 50 percent of children may be overfed.

"What are they eating?" is the wrong question.  "Why are they overeating?" is the question that must be answered in each individual case for this serious health problem to be resolved.

19-year-olds are as sedentary as 60-year-olds

According to a new study by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, physical activity among children and teens is lower than previously thought, and young adults after the age of 20 show the only increases in activity over the lifespan.  Starting at age 35, activity levels declined through midlife and older adulthood.

Drinking coffee could extend one's life

Whether caffeinated or not, scientists have found that people who drink coffee appear to live longer. Drinking coffee was associated with lower risk of death due to heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease. People who consumed a cup of coffee a day were 12 percent less likely to die compared to those who didn't drink coffee. This association was even stronger for those who drank two to three cups a day -- 18 percent reduced chance of death.  Go figure.

One step closer to growing capillaries

In their work toward 3-D printing transplantable tissues and organs, bioengineers and scientists at Rice University have demonstrated a key step on the path to generate implantable tissues with functioning capillaries.

The field of tissue regeneration is advancing so fast, it could make your head spin trying to keep up with developments.  By 2030, human death will no longer be mandatory.  For more, go to:

Generous people lead happier lives

Generosity makes people happier, even if they are only a little generous. People who act solely out of self-interest are less happy. Merely promising to be more generous is enough to trigger a change in our brains that makes us happier, neuroeconomists at the University of Zurich found in a recent study.
