A NOTE FROM RANDAL

Hi everyone,

Hope you are getting a chance to get out in between the low temperature days
that have permeated our respective states. Donna and I are getting tired of
being cooped up in the house due to the weather. We look forward to the
days we can keep the doors and windows open for the fresh air.

In today's issue, I want to draw your attention to how exercise helps the
brain. So many times we hear of how important exercise is, but now we have
a specific study referencing how our cognitive functions can be improved
with exercise. I don't know about you but this has given me a very specific
jolt to make sure I exercise more often. I know how important the brain is
and I want to do all I can to keep it healthy.

Lastly, we want you to know that we offer our heartfelt sympathies to any of
you that might have been connected with the astronauts and their families.
Like all of you we are sorry for their loss and hope the respective
government agencies can find conclusive proof as to what happpened to
prevent its happening in the future.

Stay or Get Healthy!

Until next time,
Randal

KEEPING YOUR MIND FIT

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 29 (HealthScoutNews) -- If you want to keep your brain
healthy as you age, make sure you get plenty of exercise.

A new study, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, says three
areas of the brain that are adversely affected by aging stay in better shape
when a person keeps their body physically fit. The study appears in the
February issue of the Journal of Gerontology.

This is the first study to show anatomical differences in white and gray
brain matter between older people who are physically fit and those who are
less fit.

The study included 55 people over the age of 55. The researchers used
high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging to assess the brains of the study
participants.

The researchers focused on three areas -- the frontal, temporal and parietal
cortexes. The study found distinct differences between the physically fit
people and the less fit people. Those differences were especially apparent
in two types of brain tissue -- white and gray matter.

The gray matter in your brain consists of thin layers of cell bodies such as
neurons. Gray matter also includes support cells that are important in
learning and memory. White brain matter is the myelin sheath that contains
nerve fibers that transmit signals throughout the brain.

As you age, these white and gray matter tissues shrink in a pattern that
closely matches declines in cognitive performance.

OLD WIVES' TALES

Old wives' tales are perhaps as old as language itself. They're part of our
oral tradition, originating long before pen and ink, books and movies, and
certainly before the Internet. Why do we cling to such tales about common
ailments and our health when we live in a world rich with medical expertise
and proven treatments and cures?

Some probably have survived through the ages because they offer comforting
advice about experiences that we all share, have little control over, and
usually worry about, such as birth and sickness.

Many old wives' tales, especially those surrounding pregnancy and
childbirth, have been proven false or ineffective by advances in medicine
and technology. One example is the use of prenatal ultrasound to detect the
sex of a fetus instead of dangling a ring suspended on a string over the
expectant woman's belly. According to the tale, if the ring swings from side
to side, it's a girl, and if it swings in a circle, it's a boy. An
ultrasound reading may not be as much fun, but the test results are
certainly more accurate.

DRY WINTER SKIN?

Essential fatty acids are crucial for life and well-being and heart health.
The most obvious sign of a deficiency is wintertime dry skin. Some doctors
says the deficiency of essential fatty acids (EFAs) is epidemic. The
sources are simply not consumed in the average diet. Omega 3's are commonly
found in walnuts, wheat germ, salmon, soy, rice bran and wheat germ. The
most heard of source today is either Flax Seed Oil or Omega 3 EPA.
Whichever way you want to add it to your diet is a personal choice, but if
you can't eat enough foods to fulfill your needs, try supplements.

MISNAMED ON PURPOSE

A local Pastor joined a community service club, and the members thought they
would have some fun with him.

Under his name badge they printed, "Hog Caller" as his occupation. Everyone
made a big fanfare as the badge was presented.

The Pastor responded by saying, "I usually am called the "shepherd of the
sheep'...

but you know your people better than I do."
