study conducted by the Agricul- tural Research Service’s Arkansas

Children’s Nutrition Center and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sci- ences indicates that eating blueberries may help prevent atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. When re- searchers spiked the diet of 15 lab mice with freeze-dried blueberry powder (comparable to a half-cup of the berries) for 20 weeks, they found that the size of harmful lesions (plaque) measured on two sites in their aortas were 39 and 58 percent less than for 15 mice in a control group.

hursday evenings in July and August present an opportunity for friends and fam- ily to gather in downtown East Lansing’s Valley



multi-ethnic study of 4,757 U.S. adults in a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found that those who took the most daily breaks from sitting had, on average, a smaller waist circumference, fewer blood fats and reduced markers for insulin resistance than those who took the fewest breaks. The researchers also noted increased levels of C-reactive protein in the bodies of sedentary sub- jects, which is linked to inflammation and many chronic diseases, even in people who regularly exercise. To get moving: Stand up to take phone calls and during meetings; walk to visit a colleague, rather than phoning or emailing; use a bathroom on a differ- ent floor; centralize trash and recycling bins and office equipment to encourage short trips during the work day; take the stairs; and park at the far end of the lot.
