Celiac disease is on the rise! Celiac disease is an auto-immune condition. The culprit is gluten that is found in wheat, rye, and barley. Gluten is what give baked goods that wonderful texture and keeps them from crumbling apart. Celiac is a multi-system disorder, with the small intestine as the main target of injury. Celiac disease is not the same as gluten allergy or wheat allergy. Celiac disease (gluten sensitivity) is a genetically determined autoimmune condition that damages the lining of the small intestine. Because celiac disease disrupts the digestive process, delayed diagnosis increases the risk of developing neurological problems, osteoporosis, infertility, autoimmune disorders, including Type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease and even cancer, according to Peter H.R. Green, M.D., professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University. Celiac disease is highly treatable by following a gluten-free diet.
“Midlife fitness pays. Researchers who studied date on more than 13,500 women le3arned that of those who survived to age 70 and beyond, the ones who exercised more when they were middle-aged were less likely to have one of 10 major chronic diseases, heart surgery, physical limitations, or cognitive impairment. Even just walking made a difference in long-term health outcomes. What’s more, the benefits showed up in both lean and overweight women.” Source: Archives of Internal Medicine, Jan 25, 2010

Researchers looked at the lifestyles and health records of adults ages 35 to 65, After about eight years of follow-up, they found that that ththose who had maintained a healthy weight, exercised for at least 31/2 hours a week, never smoked, and eaten plenty of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains were 78% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or cancer than those who didn’t practice prevention. Participants with all four positive habits had a 93% reduction in risk of developing diabetes.” -Diabetes Forcast Nov. 09-
