Here is the audio text to the video:

“Many healthcare professionals actually believe you can delay or even prevent Alzheimer’s disease by taking care of your overall health.

It’s true. A study done by Chinese researchers, long-known for proactive healthcare, found that individuals with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol were more likely to develop Alzheimer’s. So just remember to take a preventative, proactive approach to your overall health.”




VIDEO: Lower Your Risk of Having a Stroke

May 7, 2013

There are many factors that can influence a person’s risk of stroke. They include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation, smoking, an increased age, and more. In fact, what you eat can have a direct impact on your stroke risk, because foods have the ability to either positively or negatively affect your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and your weight.

One of the easiest ways you can lower your stroke risk is by maintaining a healthy diet. Watching what you eat by avoiding high-fat, high-sodium foods and instead choosing nutritious, fiber-rich foods can have a direct impact on your risk of stroke. Are you willing to give it a try?

In this Half-Minute Health Helper video from Life Line Screening, learn about one type of food group that has been seen to lower stroke risk.

Half-Minute Health-Helpers: Lower Your Risk of Having a Stroke

Here is the audio text to the video:

“The old saying “you are what you eat” seems to prove itself time and time again. A new Swedish study claims that middle-aged and older adults may be able to lower their risk of stroke by switching to low-fat dairy products – proof positive that diet consideration is a good strategy in managing your ongoing health for both men and women. So go leaner to go longer.”




VIDEO: Dementia Risk

April 24, 2013

Although they may seem far apart as far as location on your body, your belly and your brain have a lot of influence over each other. In fact, studies have shown a direct link between belly fat and increased risk of certain health conditions.

In this Life Line Screening video, we discuss the connection between the amount of fat a person has in their mid-section and risk of developing cognitive disorders like dementia down the road. Learn more about this connection by viewing the video below.

Half-Minute Health-Helpers: Dementia Risk

Here is the audio text to the video:

“A California researcher from Kaiser Permanente found that even if you aren’t technically overweight, access pounds around your mid-section during middle age may raise your risk of dementia later in life.

Researchers measured the waists of more than six thousand people in the 1960’s and 70’s and looked to see how many of those people developed dementia over an average of 36 years. The higher the abdominal circumference, the higher the risk by nearly three times.

Of course you can do something to reduce that risk: diet and exercise. Surprise, surprise. So trim that belly and you’ll trim your risk of dementia, too.”




VIDEO: Keeping Your Brain Active

April 17, 2013

As we age, our brains may become less active. We’re no longer learning and discovering as much as we did when we were younger. What, if any, are the benefits of keeping our brains active through continual learning as we get older?

In this Life Line Screening video, we investigate the idea that it is possible to keep your brain functions fresh and, in the process, prevent the development of serious cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s. Watch the video below to learn more.

Half-Minute Health-Helpers: Keeping Your Brain Active

Here is the audio text to the video:

“I’m sure you’re familiar with the saying you’re never too old to learn. That has never been more true than today.

As the New York Times reports, older adults are heading back to the classrooms in record numbers. The study suggests that online learning is one reason for the increase in attendance, where age disparity is not an issue. The other reason for the increase is based on reports that keeping the brain stimulated may prevent or put off Alzheimer’s.

According to the article, study and learning keeps the blood, oxygen and sugar pumping through the brain and it does, in fact, help memory. Knowledge is power, and now is prevention, too. That’s smart.”




VIDEO: The Risks of High Salt Intake

March 27, 2013

March is National Nutrition Month, and brings with it a growing awareness of the importance of a healthy, nutritious diet. When it comes to the foods and drinks we put into our bodies, moderation is key. Too much of anything, like too much sugar, too much fat, or too much sodium, can negatively impact the body by increasing risk for high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and more.

In this Life Line Screening video, we explore a new study from the University of Miami School of Medicine that put the well-known issue of too-much salt intake to the test. View the video to discover the results of the study and find out why they might matter to you and your health.

Half-Minute Health-Helpers: The Risks of High Salt Intake

Here is the audio text to the video:

“Most people already know that high levels of salt are not good for the human body and normally lead to a higher blood pressure over time. Now a new study led by the University of Miami School of Medicine seems to support the claim that there is a strong link between high salt intake and conditions such as heart disease and stroke – not just high blood pressure.

And just like sugar, hidden salt is everywhere, so read your labels to keep salt off your tables.”
