Breastfeeding 'doesn't boost children's intelligence'
Conclusion This study has tackled the controversial question of whether there are long-term benefits of breastfeeding for cognitive ability or problem behaviours when children are older (ages three to five). Although they found very limited evidence of benefit, the authors do note that there are some other studies that have used a similar analysis but found differing results. The researchers think this could be due to slight differences in analysis. This does highlight the difficulties in being absolutely certain whether breastfeeding has direct impact on long-term cognitive outcomes. What we can say is that, if there ar...

Great News! A Hot Bath Could Have Similar Benefits To Exercise
This is not a drill. A steamy bath could have a couple of health benefits similar to those produced by exercise, according to a recent study.  Research published in the journal Temperature found that an hour-long soak in hot water produced similar anti-inflammatory and blood sugar responses as 60 minutes of moderate physical activity.  Sound too good to be true? While the research on these effects is still preliminary, there is a plausible explanation for this. “It seems that activities that increase heat shock proteins may help to improve blood sugar control and offer an alternative to exerc...

Why does the same exercise exert effects on individuals differently?
(Kanazawa University) Selenoprotein P, a kind of hepatokine hormone secreted from the liver, has been found, through experiments with cultured muscle cells and mice and through clinical studies, to cause pathology named 'exercise resistance,' which prevents health promotion by physical exercise. The present results elucidate one of the reasons why individual responsiveness to exercise differs markedly as well as shed lights on development of therapy for lifestyle diseases due to lack of exercise, obesity and type-2 diabetes.
