Walk May Help Preserve Memory


We all know that we have two ears and one mouth so that we will listen more and talk less.

Now, latest finding shows that we are given two feet so that we can walk and walk aroung instead of being a couch potato. ~ LibangLibu

NEW YORK - Walks not only help older people stay physically fit, they may also be good for their brains, a new US study has shown.

The study, by a team of University of Pittsburgh researchers led by neurologist Kirk Erickson, suggested that walking at least 10 kilometres a week protected against age-related memory loss.

The results were published in Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

"Brain size shrinks in late adulthood, which can cause memory problems," said Erickson, who proposed further studies to determine whether, and what kind of, fitness training could help prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

I Want PLASTIC Bags!

Joan Lau MALAYSIAN INSIDER

November 09, 2010 — I love plastic bags. There, I have said it. Don’t everybody be writing me and accusing me of killing dolphins now. Plastic bags are great for lining the bins and I always use them to pack my shampoo and conditioner when I am travelling. Nobody wants to have shampoo and other liquid stuff leak all over their bag, right?

And wait, they are great for toting your wet towel from the gym or yoga class. And wet swimsuits. Please, don’t tell me you carry them around in your gym bag just like that? You put in a plastic bag right?

All this hoo-ha about no plastic bags annoys me. Now when I go to the supermarket, I feel like an environmental rapist when I answer yes to “Do you need a plastic bag?” Never mind that I have to pay for it AND recycle it.
