Early-to-Bed Kids at Less Risk of Obesity


R


esearch from the Ohio State University College of Public Health, in Columbus, suggests that the risk of childhood


obesity, a growing concern in the U.S., can be reduced by putting children to bed before 8 p.m. The researchers examined reports from mothers of 977


4-and-a-half-year-old children born in 1991 regarding their typical weekday bedtimes. The answers were divided into three categories: 8 p.m. or earlier, between 8 and 9 p.m. and later. Responses were compared to the obesity levels of the same children at an average age of 15. Of the group with the


earliest bedtime, comprising about 25 percent of the subjects, only one in 10 were obese, compared to 16 percent of those with childhood bedtimes between 8 and 9 p.m., rep- resenting 50 percent of the subjects. The youngsters that went to bed the latest reported a 23 percent obesity rate, the highest overall. Dr. Meena Khan, a sleep medi- cine specialist at the university’s Wexner Medical Study Center, com- ments about the challenge of maintaining proper bedtimes: “Kids do well with a schedule and a routine.”

Exercise in Midlife Helps Preserve Mental Sharpness A


study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in July con-


firms that physical activity in midlife can help reduce the chances of devel- oping cognitive impairment in old age. Scientists studied data on the physi- cal activity levels from 3,050 twins in Finland given questionnaires in 1975 and 1981.


A phone interview more than 25


years later served as a follow-up cogni- tive evaluation, and the subjects were divided into three categories: cogni- tively impaired, suffering mild cogni- tive impairment or cognitively healthy. Individuals that participated in vigor- ous physical activity when they were middle-aged displayed lower levels of cognitive impairment compared to those that did less vigorous exercise.
