Training für gesundes Altern: Willkommen auf der Langstrecke - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Wir wissen heute, dass man das biologische Alter durch bestimmte Maßnahmen deutlich beeinflussen kann", sagt Sven Voelpel, Altersforscher an der Jacobs University in Bremen und Autor des Buches "Entscheide selbst, wie alt Du bist. Was die Forschung über das Jungbleiben weiß". Mit kleinen Veränderungen bei Ernährung, Bewegung oder Schlaf lassen sich biochemische Prozesse im Körper anstoßen, die die Wahrscheinlichkeit deutlich erhöhen, gesund alt zu werden. "Aber nicht nur körperliche Faktoren spielen eine Rolle", so Voelpel: Auch die Lebensführung, soziale Kontakte, die Arbeit und Hobbys können viel dazu beitragen, geistig und körperlich jung zu bleiben.

The trap of materialism - YouTube
Consumerism! The more we consume, the better our lifes will be. ... Keeping up with the jonses. [...] the true cost of an item is not the price. as long as carbon, pollution is not priced in. thus the carbon tax and pollution tax (ecological and environmental). [...] WALL E is true. leaving a planet full of junk. and pollution, inhospitable environment. [...] post-capitalism = post-consumerism in age of abundance and marginal cost (energy, water, food). [...] a man's life does not lie in the abundance of his possessions. and be fearful of greed << Bible [...] consumerism does not equal to tue individuality or individualism of a human being among many. its a choice you can pick from and define yourself in public with it ie which color your iPhone has or what case for it [ min 8 Adam Smith; let flourish self-interested selfish economic interest through consumption = growth ] [...] shopping as experience. shopping as a way of life. self-medication. coping mechanism in the rat race.

I had alcohol-related breast cancer. Here’s why I still drink | Joanna Moorhead | Opinion | The Guardian
The chief medical officer advises women to think about cancer when having a drink. But if I did that every time I had a glass of wine, I think I’d feel the cancer had won [...] I guess what it comes down to is quite simply the importance of enjoying life. When I had cancer, I discovered that I didn’t just want to survive; I wanted to have fun, to make the most of every single day, and to enjoy happy occasions and meals with my friends and family. [...] drinking wine, beer or tequila adds a dimension to social occasions that I rather enjoy. And somehow it feels to me that it wasn’t worth surviving cancer if I’m going to limit my life to thinking, every time someone offered me a glass of something, about my breast cancer and the likelihood of it returning. [...] Life is too short to cut out something you enjoy in moderation, [ picking up the words from the food lobby, heart disease and cancer in moderation. sprinkling in doubt. to continue that lifestyle. do you say asbestos in mod? ]

'Mad Friday': Christmas revellers given alcohol warning - BBC News
The last weekend before the Christmas holiday could see alcohol-fuelled emergencies increase by up to 50%, officials believe. Alcohol sales across December could reach £2.3bn, health campaigners say. Public Health England has urged people to join its "Dry January" campaign to give up alcohol in the new year. According to figures from Public Health England and Alcohol Concern, alcohol sales in pubs, clubs, restaurants and hotels across the UK increased by 142% on the final Friday before Christmas last year. [...] "A period of abstinence could help encourage less harmful, better drinking habits in the long-term - even six months later, evidence from Dry January shows that more than two-thirds of participants are still drinking less. "As the festive season continues, we're urging people to take a break and get their 2016 off to a positive start by signing up for Dry January."

Conservatives should blame capitalism for the 'war on Christmas' | Steven W Thrasher | Opinion | The Guardian
consumption as with dieting, is not consistent. [...] The first battles of this war on Christmas are usually fought right after (and increasingly on) Thanksgiving Day, as Black Friday shoppers are whipped into a frenzy of buying garbage products we don’t need, built in ways that maim and kill the people who make them and produced by means that slowly kill us all.

Mindfulness has huge health potential – but McMindfulness is no panacea | Jon Kabat-Zinn | Comment is free | The Guardian
[ you own only your thoughts, emotions and health (fitness) ] [ you have to function ] Mindfulness is often misunderstood – so let us be clear about what we are encouraging. In essence, mindfulness – being about attention, awareness, relationality, and caring – is a universal human capacity akin to our capacity for language acquisition. It is a way of being in wise and purposeful relationship with one’s experience, both inwardly and outwardly, with oneself and with others. Thus there is an intrinsic social dimension to its cultivation as well. It usually involves cultivating familiarity and intimacy with aspects of everyday experience that we often take for granted.

NHS spending 'to fall as share of GDP by 2020' - BBC News
Tories 2 preside over the largest sustained fall in NHS spending as a share of GDP since 1951, an analysis by the King's Fund says. [POSITIONING & FRAMING! Just change the way of measurement/comparison. Did the same w child poverty. & Polarize saying NHS is inefficient (wasting money) when in reality NHS is one of the most efficient health care system in western world!] >> The Conservatives have promised to raise spending on the NHS above inflation at the last two elections & have kept the promise. They have pledged an additional £2bn this year & an extra £8bn before the election. But the share of the economy devoted to health is set to shrink by between 0.7 & 1 percentage point between 2009/2020, taking the figure back to the level last seen in 2008. [...] Simon Stevens is the head of NHS England and has published a five-year plan for the service which included £22bn in efficiency savings and different ways of working, keeping people out of hospital where possible.

One-fifth of youngsters suffer from 'high anxiety' - BBC News
The study looked at the wellbeing and mental health of 7.5 million young people in the UK aged 16 to 24. [...] The figures also show a rising proportion of young people who felt dissatisfied with their health. [...] The figures from the ONS show a picture of a growing number of young people who are satisfied with their lives - but with a persistent minority reporting unhappiness or suffering from anxiety. [...] Campus anxiety [...] But in terms of anxiety, 18% report high levels of anxiety and almost 16% have "medium" levels of anxiety. In a separate measure, there are almost 21% of young people with "evidence indicating depression or anxiety". And young people's perceptions of their own physical health seemed to be progressively more negative, with more expressing dissatisfaction and fewer feeling satisfied. [F]igures for the wellbeing of younger children which showed about one in eight youngsters between the ages of 10 and 15 reported symptoms of mental ill-health.

Jeremy Hunt breezes through MPs' health check | Politics | The Guardian
Giving evidence before Tuesday’s health select committee, Hunt gave the impression of it only being a matter of time before he learned to walk on water. He breezed in, his trademark grin revealing gleaming white teeth, as if he were hosting a departmental drinks party. Which he almost could have been. The two-hour session that had once looked as if it might get a little sticky as the committee unpicked the details of his NHS reforms, was going to be a walk in the park. Not because Sarah Wollaston or her other committee members were anything other than forensic in their questioning, but because no one in the rest of the country was paying the slightest attention. [...] Hunt began in buoyant form, suggesting that despite an ageing population, a lack of money and rising expectations, the NHS had never been in better health.
