Gusty Winds Prompt Health Caution

Blowing dust as a result of gusty winds has prompted local air-pollution officials to issue a health cautionary statement today through tomorrow, Friday, throughout the San Joaquin Valley. This health caution is in effect in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare and the Valley portion of Kern counties.

 

Winds may produce areas of localized blowing dust, which can result in unhealthy concentrations of particulate matter 10 microns and smaller (PM10). Exposure to particulate pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, trigger asthma attacks and bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections.

Boost Your Brain Power - Tai Chi Class

Boost Your Brain Power - Tai Chi Class

 

A study in the  Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, which included 120 healthy older people in China, showed doing tai chi can boost your brain power. Those who practiced this “moving meditation” technique three times a week for 40 weeks showed increases in brain volume, as seen on MRI, as well as improvements on several tests of memory and learning, compared to those not doing the exercise who had normal age-related brain shrinkage.

Previous research has shown that aerobic activity is good for the brain, but this study suggests that a more gentle form of exercise is also beneficial.  Another benefit of tai chi: it improves balance and decreases the risk of falls. (December 2012 UC Berkeley Wellness Letter)
