HEALTH TIP: Your Waist Size And Your Health
The body mass index (BMI) is the ratio of your weight in kilos to the square of your height in meters and can be used to determine if you’re at a healthy weight, overweight or obese. But two new studies from England suggest that doctors should set aside BMI and focus on their patients’ waist circumference when assessing health risks. One study, published online June 5, 2012, in the journal PLoS Medicine, found that the larger your waist circumference, the higher your risk of type 2 diabetes. The second study, published in the March 2012 issue of Obesity Reviews, suggested that keeping waist circumference to less than half your height can increase life expectancy. This study evaluated the health of 300,000 people and found that waist to height ratio was more predictive of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks and strokes than BMI. In addition to the two British studies, in 2010 American Cancer Society researchers reported that the larger your waist - regardless of your weight - the greater your risk of dying from cancer, heart disease and respiratory disease. To accurately determine your waist circumference measure mid-way between your lowest rib and the top of the pelvic bone at your hip.#dherbs

HEALTH TIP: Foods To Reduce The Risk Of Stroke
Want to help reduce your odds of having a stroke? Besides minimizing common risk factors such as smoking and unhealthy stress, consider adding magnesium-rich foods to your grocery cart. Researchers at the Swedish Karolinska Institute found that the risk for ischemic stroke - the most common type of stroke in older people, which is when a clot blocks a blood vessel in the brain - was reduced by 9% for each additional 100 milligrams of magnesium a person consumed each day. For any type of stroke, adding 100 milligrams of magnesium reduced the risk by 8%. It is not known exactly how magnesium reduces the risk of stroke, but the researchers suggest that the mineral’s benefits may be related to its ability to lower blood pressure. Next time you are at the grocery or farmer’s market, buy these magnesium-rich foods:
1. Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and collard greens, as well as broccoli
2. Nuts and seeds. Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of magnesium, and almonds and cashews are good nut choices
3. Whole grain products such as brown rice, oat bran cereal and whole grain breads
4. Beans. Black beans are a particularly good source, providing 120 mg in one cup #dherbs
