Medical News Monday
Here’s another Tuesday edition of the current Medical News Monday, enjoy!

Eating a diet rich in unrefined olive oil and nuts lowered the rate of major cardiovascular events by nearly 30% compared to people who followed a low-fat diet.  It’s no surprise that the foods you put into your body make a big difference .  A Mediterranean diet typically consists of olive oil, fruit, nuts, vegetables, legumes, some fish and poultry, and limited amounts of dairy products, red meat, soda drinks, processed meats, and sweets.  Bottom line is less processed foods equal a healthier you!

We are less active today then we were 50 years ago, that’s a no brainer.  Women in 1965 burned 4,663 calories per week doing chores around the house.  In 2010 that number dropped to 2,806 per week in 2010.  In that same time period TV watching time increased 200%.  Get out and get moving or turn the commercials into a reason to get extra exercises in.
