Swapping as little as half an hour of sitting time each day with physical activity appears to help reduce the risk of early death among middle-aged and older adults, according to a study published online in the American Journal of Epidemiology. The study also found that the risk drops even when the activity is a low-intensity one, such as light walking. These findings should be encouraging to sedentary people who find exercise either difficult or distasteful. You don’t need to be a runner to reap the benefits of exercise, this study suggests. Nor do you need to be exercising for huge swaths of time each day. “If you have a job or lifestyle that involves a lot of sitting, you can lower your risk of early death by moving more often, for as long as you want and as your ability allows — whether that means taking an hourlong high-intensity spin class or choosing lower-intensity activities, like walking,” says Keith Diaz, the study’s lead author and a professor … [Read more...] about Replacing sitting time with 30 minutes of physical activity linked to a longer life

Changes in typing speed, voice tone, word choice and how often kids stay home could signal trouble, according to preliminary studies. There might be as many as 1,000 smartphone “biomarkers” for depression, said Dr. Thomas Insel, former head of the National Institute of Mental Health and now a leader in the smartphone psychiatry movement. Researchers … [Read more...] about Detecting depression: Smartphone apps could monitor teen angst

Supported by Your Money Adviser ByAnn Carrns Jan. 11, 2019 Consumers affected by Equifax’s huge data breach in 2017 may need to re-establish protections on their credit report if they “locked” their files as part of the company’s free credit-monitoring offer.
