Many cancer survivors and astronauts have something in common: their bodies can experience years of aging after only a few month of treatment – or space flight. Exercise can help, says Jessica Scott, PhD, a Principal Investigator at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Before focusing on cancer patients, Scott worked at the Johnson Space Center, helping astronauts keep their heart and muscles healthy. Here, she talks about the emerging field of exercise-oncology and how applying the research related to astronauts can help survivors prevent or slow accelerated aging.
Herbs and spices have always been essential to good cooking. They can be used as a healthy substitute for salt, which may be linked to higher risk for stomach cancer and high blood pressure.
Fresh summer meals can be made even healthier when you add fragrant herbs and spices that help you cool off. Research shows that fragrant green herbs and pungent spices boost good health by substituting for salt and adding natural phytochemicals which may protect against cancer.
