Research Suggests Type 2 Diabetes is a ‘Preventable Disease’

You can’t blame it on your parents anymore.

A new study by the Harvard School of Public Health makes clear that your genes “take a back seat” to behavioral and lifestyle factors when it comes to developing Type 2 diabetes, and that – where men are concerned – lifting weights for just 30 minutes a day, five times a week, can cut your risk by as much as 34 percent. Make that as much as 59 percent when weights are combined with aerobic exercise.

Benched by Concussions

Notice how many professional athletes have been sidelined lately by concussions?

Experts have, and – with the problem also affecting youth sports from soccer to bicycling to football – they’re labeling it “a national epidemic.”

“Not only are most athletes susceptible to concussions from collisions, but in pro hockey alone there are more than 50,000 ‘hits’ annually – and too many are serious injuries to the head,” says Dr. Ted Carrick, board-certified chiropractic neurologist and distinguished professor of neurology at Life University, who treats professional athletes from around the world, and is active in the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.
