Bone Health and Ageing

“We think it’s important to reinforce the fact that osteoporosis is not just a woman’s disease,” said Rozental. Studies have shown that men have twice the mortality rate of women both during initial hospitalization and in the year following a hip fracture. Survival rates following a wrist fracture, the number-one upper extremity fracture in older adults, also are lower among men.

Exercise and Effect on Memory       Strenuous exercise linked to memory loss


However this article rebuts the cardiac arrest danger of marathon running.

Short Burst of Exercise Improves Memory ; and exercise delays memory loss

Segal (the lead researcher) theorizes that the increase in memory skills may be due to a chemical called norepinephrine, which is released during exercise. Previous studies showed that inhibiting norepinephrine actually hinders memory, while raising norepinephrine levels pharmacologically can elevate memory skills.

The study, conducted over 12 weeks, showed that adults who exercised regularly showed improvement in both metabolic and cognitive health. That’s because aerobic exercise improves blood flow to the brain—specifically to the region where the effects of Alzheimer’s are seen the most.

These are forwarded to all participants in the Australian 30 year study into lifestyle factors that may cause cancer. I mentioned this study on the Reverse Ageing  page.

I am one of those participants. These newsletters provide information to participants in the study about the discoveries that have emerged from the research. Consisting of over 40,000 subjects, it is one of the world’s largest and longest such studies. It commenced in 1990 and is planned to conclude in 2020.
