Dr. Susan Sharma: This is Insidermedicinein60. From California - According to research in the Archives of Internal Medicine, running regularly may help you live longer. In a study of over 280 members of a running club and over 150 controls, all of whom were over the age of 50; researchers found that after a 20 year period, 15% of runners had died compared to 34% of controls. In addition, runners were found to have fewer injuries of all kinds, including to their knees. From Portland - In research that published in the journal Diabetes Care, scientists have discovered that losing weight immediately after being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes may have health benefits. In a study of over 2500 recently diagnosed patients, those had lost an average of 25 pounds after their diagnosis are more likely to reach blood pressure and blood sugar targets. This remained true, even if the patients regained their weight. And finally, from New York - According to research in the journal Pediatrics, children who deal with issues like divorce and abuse are more likely to start drinking at a young age. In a study of over 3600 people aged 18 to 39, those that were abused as children and were two to three times more likely to drink at an early age. And those whose parents were divorced were 70% more likely. The researchers note that not all children who experience hardship growing up will turn to early drinking, but one reason for doing so, maybe related to a lack of adult supervision.
