Urbana, Illinois (University of Illinois), June 2017— At $8 each, is buying a Buddha-shaped pear foolish or fun? Your age may predict your answer.

Square watermelons, star- and heart-shaped cucumbers, and those Buddha-shaped pears can be found today in the produce bins of some grocery stores. Who buys them? And why? A recent University of Illinois study found younger consumers with an eye for adventure are more likely to purchase these avant-garde fruits.

Slowing Things Down with Mediterranean-Style Diets
Wednesday, 25 January 2017 17:07
Everywhere, USA, January 2017—Modifiable factors related to healthy aging have been a critical area of research for years, primarily because seniors today comprise the fastest growing age demographic in the United States.

In particular, a new study published by the American Academy of Neurology joins other studies reporting potential beneficial changes in brain activity related to consuming a Mediterranean-style diet. The Med diet, so-called because of where it came from (countries more or less bordering the Mediterranean Sea) , is high in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and plant-based oils, moderate in amounts of fish, low to moderate amounts of wine and dairy, and low in amounts of poultry and meat.

Minnetonka, Minnesota, July 2016—Increasing rates of diabetes and obesity among middle-aged Americans, those in the 50-64 year range, coupled with a massive growth in the senior population, as those seemingly ageless Boomers actually get older, is affecting our combined health.

These alterations in life and lifestyle are and will continue to affect us, so everyone in this range and older needs to be aware and ready to stand up to the inevitability of getting older.

Let’s Talk Generations
Wednesday, 25 January 2017 17:13
Washington, DC, January 2017—You know what we’re talking about: how the generations, dating from the so-called “Silent Generation” up through the notorious Boomers, to Generation X, the Millennials, and now Generation Z, all differ in their desires, expectations and mode of living.

As it turns out that may not be the case—either that, or since we’ve now almost come full circle (tack on the “Greatest” Generation, those wonderful people who fought in most all our wars from WWI through Vietnam, and we have,) old habits are becoming new again.
Deserving Doggies
Friday, 05 August 2016 17:02
Livonia, Michigan, July 2016—Furry pups Creed, Rosie and Apollo may not know how to use social media, but Facebook posts about their touching stories have landed each of them an adventure trip with their respective owners – along with fundraising and awareness campaigns for their associated charitable causes.

The winning dogs and their owners were selected among more than 2,800 entries in the Path to Adventure Contest, a social media campaign hosted by Pet Supplies Plus, as part of the launch earlier this year of their Redford Naturals dog food brand. Partnering with The Sheppard, LLC, Pet Supplies Plus will send them to the locations of their choice this fall, while along the way helping to raise funds and awareness for non-profit, pet-related causes.

Urbana, Illinois, March 2016—As if we didn’t have enough to worry about, something very important and critical to human health is often thrust aside, due to so many other concerns in our lives.

And that’s that salad veggies can be potent vectors for food borne pathogens, including viruses and bacteria—with microscopic structures of vegetable surfaces contributing to illnesses contracted as a result.
Keeping Boomers on Straight and Narrow
Tuesday, 22 December 2015 16:49
Boca Raton, Florida, December 2015—Baby boomers believe in the value of prevention, but many of America’s most influential generation are taking a reactive, and sometimes risky, approach when it comes to managing their health, as revealed by the first MDVIP Boomer Health Survey taken recently. (NOTE: We could not find identification of the acronym. Ed.)

The national survey of 1,049 baby boomers, conducted by the independent market research firm Ipsos Public Affairs on behalf of MDVIP, shows that while 94 percent of boomers believe preventive care is an important part of staying healthy, three of four say they should be doing more to better manage their health (74 percent). Half of boomers (46 percent) say they don’t exercise regularly, and more than a third say they don’t eat healthy (35 percent) or get sufficient sleep (37 percent, 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night).
