Womens Health and Fitness Online provides free workouts, recipes, diet advice and up-to-the-minute info across health, beauty, nutrition and fitness. As the field of data and analytics advances and the collection and exchange of personal data becomes even more ubiquitous, it will be crucial to ensure that personal information is protected and secure. Patient data are particularly valuable and vulnerable to cyberattacks. Health care is consistently among the most targeted industries when it comes to cyberattacks, and this threat is only likely to increase.

Declaring an emergency allows Tedros to make recommendations to other nations and coordinate an international response, including whether countries should impose travel or trade bans. It can also mobilize public health resources and galvanize public and political action, said Lawrence Gostin, a professor and faculty director of the 'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University.

With 21 million potential Medicaid patients poised to enter the health care system in 2014, primary care physicians will face a double burden: caseload constraints coupled with at-risk patients' substantial social needs. Poverty seeps into emergency rooms and inpatient wards and pervades the health system. Half of the adults who will gain insurance eligibility in 2014 are very poor (with incomes below 50 percent of the federal poverty level), a third have a diagnosed chronic medical condition, and many are likely to have long-neglected health care needs due to years without coverage.

Getting Ahead of Future Outbreaks: In 2014, it was the Ebola virus. In 2016, it is the Zika virus. Next year it may be a new virus or infectious disease. We can't tell. But here is what we know: the world is becoming a much smaller and interconnected place. With global travel and easier movement of goods and services, we will increasingly see epidemics emerge at a more rapid rate. We need to do a better job of supporting medical research and our public health workers so we are better prepared for future emergencies. That's why this year I introduced an amendment that passed as part of a government funding bill, to increase funding for the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, which is at the forefront of preparing and responding to public health crises.

To predict future trends in the sport-life arena, we took a look at human habits and behaviors, as well as digital technology's impact on how we shape our approach to health, fitness, and well-being. We worked with industry experts, futurists, behavioral economists, neuro- and sport scientists to identify forward-looking developments in their respective fields, and further validated them by going to everyday people conducting the first-ever adidas Wellness Poll, surveying 3,000 US-based men and women of various activity levels aged 18-50.

Hi Tom, stomach flu contagious Yes, as reported: Study investigators also calculated life expectancy by how many of these five healthy habits people had. Just one healthy habit (and it didn't matter which one) … just one… extended life expectancy by two years in men and women. Not surprisingly, the more healthy habits people had, the longer their lifespan." All of these results were statistically significant. There is a link to the actual study at the bottom of the post, it's very clearly written, take a look.

Do you feel sluggish, out of shape and unable to concentrate? You need more energy for living a healthy lifestyle, and you need to achieve this in a sustainable way. While caffeine and energy drinks can give you short-term results, they can't continue to work in the long run.

This free challenge is a great way to begin your health journey. During the 10 days, you'll cut out foods that are harming your body and integrate healthful nutrients that allow you to perform at peak level.

With grossly uneven quality and a body of existing solutions, does health care need more imitation and less innovation? As Anna M. Roth and Thomas H. Lee suggested in the Harvard Business Review, maybe we should be anointing more chief imitation officers — people who scour the literature and the country for effective practices to bring home — and fewer chief innovation officers.

US health professionals, in contrast, tend to take one of two (largely ineffective) approaches. Most often, as noted in the Johns Hopkins study mentioned earlier, health care providers bracket patients' social needs, deeming issues like hunger, poor housing, and indebtedness beyond the scope of short patient-doctor visits. Some primary care clinicians do try to address patients' basic social needs. But they quickly become overloaded, and addressing such needs crowds out other key modalities of their clinical practice. A June 2011 Health Leads survey at Bellevue Hospital in New York City discovered that doctors spend an average of 9.2 minutes of each 15-minute patient visit on social needs.
