WEDNESDAY, March 20, 2019 -- Want a reason to get out of your comfy armchair? Even low levels of regular physical activity -- brisk walking, dancing or gardening -- can reduce your risk of premature death, a new study finds.
Americans who got in just 10 to 59 minutes of moderate physical activity every week had an 18 percent lower risk of death from any cause, compared with couch potatoes, the researchers found.
WEDNESDAY, Jan. 30, 2019 (American Heart Association) -- New research has found that women who have a heart attack, stroke or some other type of cardiovascular event before age 35 have twice the risk of going into early menopause -- which could create its own set of health hazards.
Menopause is the process in which a woman permanently stops having menstrual cycles. In many women, it occurs around age 51.
TUESDAY, Jan. 22, 2019 -- Women who are "mindful" in their everyday activities seem to suffer fewer menopause symptoms, new research suggests.
The study couldn't prove that it was the mindfulness that was keeping symptoms at bay, but it does add to evidence for a link, said lead researcher Dr. Richa Sood. She's a women's health specialist at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minn.
