12 Minutes of Exercises Boost Metabolites


The sad reality of wanting to stay healthy is that not all of us can spare an hour a day for exercise. Often, living room workouts, garden WODs and kitchen mobility sessions are squeezed into lunch breaks or as a quick blast when our schedule permits. Even during a time when most of us are spending more hours at home, finding the minutes to get a sweat on is a challenge in itself, never mind the actual workout.

However, if a new Harvard-affiliated research paper by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is to be believed, short workouts will no longer equate to a failed workout.

As detailed in a paper published in Circulation, the research team found that approximately 12 minutes of cardiopulmonary exercise was enough to affect around 80 per cent of circulating metabolites — the substance that’s necessary for a functioning metabolism — as well as various biological pathways

The holiday season is here, but unfortunately, so is the second wave of COVID-19 cases. As the days get cooler and wetter and the flu begins to circulate again, coronavirus prevention efforts—such as social distancing and wearing face coverings—are more important than ever.

Thankfully, an effective vaccine appears to be on the horizon. But until then, what else can we do to safeguard ourselves from infection? There is now ample evidence suggesting that critical COVID-19 cases are usually linked to such concurrent factors as obesity, diabetes, hypertension or heart disease—chronic conditions often related to poor diet. Furthermore, a balanced diet supplies the body with a range of macro- and micronutrients that prime the immune system to prevent or fight disease. Proper nutrition could help us at least avoid

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico on Monday started offering limited saliva testing as health officials look to boost the state’s capacity for COVID-19 testing while spread of the virus remained unchecked and hospital administrators renewed their pleas for people to stay home for the holidays and refrain from family gatherings.

Coalition seizes on pandemic to boost ‘Obamacare’ sign-ups


A coalition of states, health care groups and activists is striving to drum up “Obamacare” sign-ups among millions of uninsured Americans as the coronavirus spreads uncontrolled in many communities

The campaign kicking off Thursday is called Get Covered 2021 and contrasts with a lack of outreach to the uninsured by the Trump administration, which is still trying to overturn the Affordable Care Act, even in the coronavirus pandemic.

“There’s renewed energy around getting people covered this year, given how COVID-19 is impacting so many people’s lives,” said Joshua Peck, a former Obama
