More from the Sister Study

  • Posted on March 26, 2017 at 5:48 pm

In the March 17, 2009 issue of Life Extension Update, we reported the finding from the Sister Study, a cohort of healthy sisters of breast cancer patients, of a beneficial association between multivitamin use and telomere length, a biomarker of aging. Telomeres, which are repeating DNA sequences that cap the ends of chromosomes, shorten with increased cellular aging.

In articles published in the February and March, 2009 issues of the journal Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention, further findings from the Sister Study concerning the impact of lifestyle on telomere length were revealed.

In the February, 2009 issue, Christine Parks, PhD, of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and her associates evaluated the effect of stress on telomere length in 647 Sister Study participants. Telomere length in DNA from blood samples was measured, and stress hormone levels in urine were assessed. Questionnaires completed by the subjects provided information on perceived stress levels.

Study participants, on average, reported low stress levels. “Even so, women who reported above-average stress had somewhat shorter telomeres, but the difference in telomere length was most striking when we looked at the relationship between perceived stress and telomere length among women with the highest levels of stress hormones,” Dr Parks observed. “Among women with both higher perceived stress and elevated levels of the stress hormone epinephrine, the difference in telomere length was equivalent to or greater than the effects of being obese, smoking or 10 years of aging.”

In the report that appeared in the March, 2009 issue of the journal, the effect of past and current body mass index (BMI) on telomere length was examined. Sister Study participants whose BMI categorized them as overweight or obese before or during their thirties and whose weight status was maintained were found to have shorter telomeres compared to subjects who became overweight at an older age. “This suggests that duration of obesity may be more important than weight change per se, although other measures of overweight and obesity were also important,” stated lead author Sangmi Kim, PhD, also of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. “Our results support the hypothesis that obesity accelerates the aging process”.

“We anticipate a wealth of information to come out of the Sister Study,” predicted Dale Sandler, PhD, chief of the Epidemiology Branch at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and principal investigator of the Sister Study. “Not only do we hope to find out more about the environmental and genetic factors that might lead to breast cancer, we also want to learn more about how factors such as stress, diet and exercise might impact cancer and other disease risks.”

“Together these two studies reinforce the need to start a healthy lifestyle early and maintain it,” National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences director Linda Birnbaum, PhD, concluded. “These papers remind us that there are things people can do to modify their behavior and live healthier lives, such as maintain a healthy weight and cultivate healthy responses to stress.”

Tea – An Easy Way to Clean Your Wood Flooring

  • Posted on March 26, 2017 at 4:00 pm

Here’s a great tip from to get a rich shine from your wood flooring. Black tea – we’re afraid milk and two sugars doesn’t quite work – is a great cleaning agent, as well as being cheap and environmentally sound.

The trick is in the tannic acid, which help to bring out rich wood colours. Simply steep 5-10 tea bags in a litre or two of boiling water for around ten minutes. This may seem like a lot, but its necessary to make a brew strong enough to clean properly. Afterwards, remove the bags and allow to cool.

You’ll then need to wash the floor as usual, either with a mixture of warm water and vinegar or your normal cleaning product. It’s important to never wash hardwood with hot water as this can damage the finish.

Straight afterwards, mop over the tea mixture and leave to dry. Almost immediately, you’ll notice the difference with a deep, rich shine. If you like, you can buff the floor further with a dry, clean cloth.

Alternatively, the tea can be poured in a spray bottle and sprayed directly on the floor in sections. This makes an excellent furniture polish too, and is a great way to get the kids involved. As tea is non-toxic, there’s no need to worry about inhaling fumes or getting damaging chemicals on sensitive skin.

Remember though, this will only work with unsweetened black tea. Flavoured and herbal teas don’t have the necessary tannins, and could do more harm than good, while a brew with sugar will leave an unappealing sticky layer. It’s also wise to dust mop your wood flooring at least weekly to stop large debris from building up, which can scratch the surface when trod in.

However, if you do find deep scratches, all is not lost. Here’s another good trick – after you have cleaned the floor and applied the tea solution, let it dry as normal. Then take a crayon that’s a similar colour to your finish – the closer the better – and rub it into the scratch until it is filled. Then heat the damaged area with a hair drier until its blended in and leave for a moment to set. A quick buff with another clean, dry cloth and your wood floor should be as good as new. Easy!

Fitness Equipmentshould You Buy

  • Posted on March 26, 2017 at 3:58 pm

There are dozens of health clubs and gyms out there, offering you discounts on membership, low down payments, and so on and so forth, but should you shell out the big bucks every month to belong to a club, or buy your own fitness equipment and simply workout at home?

You can purchase exercise equipment nearly everywherelocal discount retailers, sporting goods stores, used sporting good stores, online, or even at garage sales. Having your own home gym fitness equipment means that you will save money. You wont be paying money endlessly, month after month, to a health club. At the end of the day the equipment you use will be yours to own, rather than just use at the gym. And since it will be right in your own home, you will most likely use it more, meaning you can more easily achieve your fitness goals.

If you are the type of person who does not like to wait around for cardio equipment or weight stations to open up, you will also be better off purchasing your own home gym or fitness equipment and working out at home, where there is never a wait to use the equipment and you can workout at your own pace, not on someone elses schedule.

If you are thinking of buying fitness equipment for your home, it is important to have both cardio and strength training equipment. Doing cardiovascular exercise will burn the fat off your body and help you lose weight, but you also need to strength train in order to build muscle, which helps to keep the fat off. The more muscle you have on your body, the higher your metabolism, meaning the body will burn more calories at rest.

A well-balanced workout routine has both. For cardio, you might consider purchasing a treadmill, a stationary bike or an elliptical trainer. Find what you like to do, and purchase that piece of equipment. If you hate to run and purchase a treadmill, it will simply sit there collecting dust, so make wise buying choices. If you have bad knees, an elliptical may be your best bet, as they are low impact and do not put pressure on the joints.

For strength training, purchase a good, varied set of dumbbells, ranging from light to heavy in weight, or go for an adjustable set, such as Power Blocks or the SelectTech dumbbells from Bowflex. These take up less space, and can be adjusted in increments from light to heavy.

If you would prefer to skip the dumbbells, you can purchase resistance bands that work with your bodys weight to provide resistance, giving you a great strength training workout. Other equipment that you might choose to look into for strength training include a medicine ball for core work, a resistance ball and a mat. These will become invaluable tools to you as your workout at home.

Tips On How To Start An Investment Club

  • Posted on March 26, 2017 at 2:55 pm

Investment club is formed by a group of people who pool their money for joint investments. If you are a new to investing in stock market and have limited funds, starting an investment club is a great way to learn from other investors and get hands on experience in investing.

Here are some tips to starting an investment club.

1. Make sure all members understand the risks of investing. Many people who invest think they are going to be very successful, and are not prepared to lose all of their money. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees when it comes to the stock market. No one should invest money they are not willing to lose.

2. Find the right people who share the same investment objectives and goals. It is easier to get along with right minded people and learn from each other.

3. Make sure all club members agree to the partnership agreement and any other rules.

4. Join the National Association of Investors Corporation (NAIC) that provides support, information and tools on starting an investment club and investing, and publishes a monthly investor-learning magazine.

5. All members must agree to make a monthly contribution. The typical range of contribution is $20 to $100 a month. Members who contribute more than the required contribution are allowed greater share of profits.

6. Decide on how to meet and the frequency of meetings. For the initial setting up of the club, it may be best for everyone to meet in person. If all meetings are held online, it may be good to meet in person once or twice a year for social interaction. To keep up to date, it is recommended to meet 1-2 times a month.

7. Start with a small number of people. It is easier to come to an agreement when there are fewer members. When the club is established and all formal procedures are in place, new members can be invited to join.

8. Education is the main goal of an investment club. An investment club made up of educated investors will be more successful and cohesive than an investment club which is solely focused on making a profit.

9. Every investment club must have a well-defined investment style or investment philosophy. There must be clear selection criteria such as what type of stocks to invest, the acceptable risk tolerance level and rate of return. All club members should be aware of and agree to the investment style of the club.

Starting and running an investment club is an invaluable learning experience, where you can leverage on the expertise and knowledge of other investors. Investment clubs facilitate the exchange of ideas and collective decisions that are likely to produce sustainable returns.
