    Parenting Style Could Influence ADHD Severity in Kids

    MONDAY, Feb. 19, 2024 (HealthDay News) — A shift in parenting early in a child’s development might help curb the symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), new research suggests. When a preschooler exhibits an “excitable or exuberant” temperament, dialing down a “controlling” style of parenting in favor of what’s known as “directive” parenting could mean milder ADHD symptoms as a child ages, Canadian researchers report. “More directive parenting, which is not controlling but guides the child with verbal and physical cues, can help develop the child’s self-regulatory skills and prevent their ADHD symptoms from increasing,” explained study co-author Dr. Heather Henderson, a professor of developmental psychology at the University of…

    Mediterranean style of eating named best diet for 2023 | Health

    The gold medals are piling up. For the sixth year in a row, the Mediterranean style of eating earned the title of best overall diet, according to 2023 ratings announced Tuesday by U.S. News & World Report. Meals from the sunny Mediterranean also ranked first in the categories of diet best diet for healthy eating and best plant-based diet, the report said. In two new categories added for 2023, the Mediterranean tied with the cholesterol-lowering TLC (Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes) and flexitarian diets as best family-friendly diet, and with DASH (dietary approaches to stop hypertension) for best bone and joint health diet. “We’re always looking for more health conditions that we…

    The Biggest Style Moments of 2022

    It’s a testament to the power of personal style when an outfit can launch as much buzz as a new movie (or a bit of salacious behavior). Think about your Instagram feeds around the time of the Met Gala or the Cannes Film Festival (yes, it is more than just a red carpet). Were you more interested in the tangled web the characters of The White Lotus weaved? Or the absurd sartorial choices they made? If you, too, fall into the latter school of thought, we’ve rounded up the style moments that infiltrated the cultural discourse on a grand scale below.

    Adults could achieve physical activity targets by walking “Teabag style” for a few minutes each day

    Adults could achieve global physical activity targets by walking inefficiently for just a few minutes each day, finds a study in the Christmas issue of The BMJ. Global rates of physical inactivity have not budged in the past 20 years, despite campaigns to increase physical activity and boost cardiovascular fitness in adults. The inefficient walking styles of Mr Teabag and Mr Putey, acted by John Cleese and Michael Palin in the 1971 Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks sketch, have been shown to be more variable than usual walking, but their energy expenditure has never been measured. To fill this vital research gap, a team of US researchers set out…

    There’s a tendency to assume the best about Ron DeSantis because, after all, he isn’t Donald Trump. But DeSantis is no moderate. He is an extremist, cut from the same cloth as Trump, just with a better tailor. On Tuesday, the anti-vax co-front-runner announced he was forming a committee to counter recommendations from the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and that a statewide grand jury would be investigating “crimes and wrongdoing” related to the coronavirus vaccine. The past president of the Florida chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics said she was “stunned” by what she described as “just another example of politicizing health…

    Health benefits of walking, tips on getting started and finding your style | Health

    Muscle health can often tell you how you are going to age and stay active and independent as you may move easily and maintain your body robust with healthy muscles but starting at age 40, adults can lose up to 8 percent of their muscle mass per decade. Muscle loss happens not only due to ageing but also due to injury, illness, poor nutrition etc and has implications on daily life activities since decreases in muscle function is largely due to changes in muscle mass. The progressive mismatch between muscle mass and strength mostly occurs due to a deterioration of muscle quality. Hence, muscle strength becomes more important than muscle…

    There’s a tendency to assume the best about Ron DeSantis because, after all, he isn’t Donald Trump. But DeSantis is no moderate. He is an extremist, cut from the same cloth as Trump, just with a better tailor. Consider his latest move. On Tuesday, the anti-vax co-front-runner announced that he was forming a new committee at the state level to counter recommendations from the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and that a statewide grand jury would be investigating “crimes and wrongdoing” related to the coronavirus vaccine.
