esveratrol is a natural substance found in grapes, peanuts, blueber- ries and other foods that’s known for its heart-protective nature. Researchers believe it may also help promote eye health, including prevention of glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, but not much is known about its presence in the eyes.


Resveratrol May Help Eye Health R


Scientists from Tongji Medical College, in China, set out to measure the concentration of


trans-resveratrol in the eyes after oral supplementation. Three daily doses of Longevinex, an oral trans-resvera-


trol-based capsule supplement, was administered to 35 adults prior to eye surgery on one of their eyes, and tissue samples of the conjunctiva, aqueous humor and vitreous humor were taken. Researchers measured the tissues for resveratrol concentration to determine how much of the supplement penetrated the eyes. Resveratrol metabolites were detected in the conjunctiva of 25 of the eyes, indicating that the benefi- cial substance does pass through the brain.


Walking Reduces Symptoms of Dementia A


study from the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, examined the impact of regular walking on people with vascular cognitive impairment, the second-most common form of


dementia. The ailment occurs when blood vessels become damaged by cardiovascular disease, impeding good blood circulation and making the brain work harder. The researchers scanned the brains and conducted computerized decision-making and attention


tests on 38 people with mild, early forms of vascular cognitive impairment. Half of the subjects were asked to participate in supervised, one-hour walking sessions three times per week for a six-month period. The remaining subjects did not walk. After six months, the walking group showed improvements in both blood pressure and brain function, with their brains requiring less effort during the decision-making and attention tests.


Banning Trans Fats Lowers Heart Attacks


E


leven counties in New York insti- tuted restrictions on trans fatty acids


in restaurants in 2007. Researchers from Yale Univer- sity School of Medicine used data from the New York State


Department of Health statewide Plan- ning and Research Cooperative System and U.S. Census population estimates to determine the impact of these restric- tions on the health of the community; they compared the 11 counties that had the restrictions to 25 counties without them. The scientists concluded that hospital heart attack admissions were significantly lower for the 11 counties with the restrictions.
