In the news!

Two new and interesting stories in the news today....

The first is about a McMaster University study on the effects of exercise and aging.  It seems that endurance exercise (aerobic) may help fight and even reverse the signs of aging.

The second is about a new "Nutrient Rating" system that will be implemented in Canada soon.  It will be a star rating; three stars for a healthy option and down to zero stars for the opposite end.  The bonus about this system will be that the manufacturers will have no way to influence their rating.  Unlike, for example, the Heart and Stroke "Health Check" program.

Stay healthy!
