Mindfulness meditation works. Among primary care patients with subthreshold depression, mindfulness meditation training reduces the incidence of major depression and improves depression symptoms. Intervention participants were invited to attend weekly two-hour mindfulness training sessions for eight consecutive weeks.  The authors suggest that, for patients with subthreshold depression who have not had a major depressive episode in the past six months, mindfulness training is a feasible method of preventing major depression. American Academy of Family Physicians

Physical exercise helps protect cells. Physical activity had influenced brain metabolism: it prevented an increase in choline. The concentration of this metabolite often rises as a result of the increased loss of nerve cells, which typically occurs in the case of Alzheimer's disease. Physical exercise led to stable cerebral choline concentrations in the training group, whereas choline levels increased in the control group. The participants' physical fitness also improved: they showed increased cardiac efficiency after the training period. Overall, these findings suggest that physical exercise not only improves physical fitness but also protects cells. Goethe University Frankfurt. Translational Psychiatry

Broccoli, new substance against diabetes. Researchers have identified an antioxidant - richly occurring in broccoli - as a new antidiabetic substance. A patient study shows significantly lower blood sugar levels in participants who ate broccoli extract with high levels of sulforaphane. "There are strong indications that this can become a valuable supplement to existing medication," says Anders Rosengren, Docent in Metabolic Physiology at the University of Gothenburg. Science Translational Medicine

Lifting your spirits - You don't have to spend hours at the gym or work up a dripping sweat to improve your mood and feel better about yourself. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle - spending large parts of your day sitting at home or at work - simply getting out of your chair and moving around can reduce depression and lift your spirits.

Meditation keeps emotional brain in check - Meditation can help tame your emotions even if you're not a mindful person. "It just takes some practice," said Yanli Lin. Mindfulness, a moment-by-moment awareness of one's thoughts, feelings and sensations, has gained worldwide popularity as a way to promote health and well-being. But what if someone isn't naturally mindful? Can they become so simply by trying to make mindfulness a "state of mind"? Or perhaps through a more focused, deliberate effort like meditation? "If you're a naturally mindful person, and you're walking around very aware of things, you're good to go. You shed your emotions quickly," Jason Moser said. "If you're not naturally mindful, then meditating can make you look like a person who walks around with a lot of mindfulness. But for people who are not naturally mindful and have never meditated, forcing oneself to be mindful 'in the moment' doesn't work. You'd be better off meditating for 20 minutes."

Yoga improves arthritis symptoms and mood - A randomized trial of people with two common forms of arthritis has found that yoga can be safe and effective for people with arthritis. Johns Hopkins researchers report that 8 weeks of yoga classes improved the physical and mental wellbeing of people with two common forms of arthritis, knee osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. "There's a real surge of interest in yoga as a complementary therapy, with 1 in 10 people in the U.S. now practicing yoga to improve their health and fitness," says Susan J. Bartlett, Ph.D., an adjunct associate professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins and associate professor at McGill University "Yoga may be especially well suited to people with arthritis because it combines physical activity with potent stress management and relaxation techniques, and focuses on respecting limitations that can change from day to day." Journal of Rheumatology

Green tea and apples - Dietary studies have shown that people who eat the largest amounts of fruit and vegetables have a reduced risk of developing chronic conditions, such as heart disease and cancer. There could be several reasons for this. Some fruit and vegetables naturally contain high amounts of compounds called polyphenols, which could provide protective health benefits. Dr Paul Kroon and his team at IFR have shown that polyphenols in green tea and apples block a signalling molecule called VEGF, which in the body can trigger atherosclerosis and is a target for some anti-cancer drugs. Inhibition of VEGF signalling by dietary polyphenols has previously been implicated in other studies, but this study provides the first evidence that polyphenols can directly interact with VEGF to block its signals, at the levels you would see in the blood stream after eating polyphenol rich foods. "If this effect happens in the body as well, it provides very strong evidence for a mechanism that links dietary polyphenols and beneficial health effects," said Dr Paul Kroon.

Curcumin - turmeric offers potential therapy for oral cancers - Turmeric - the familiar yellow spice common in Indian and Asian cooking - may play a therapeutic role in oral cancers associated with human papillomavirus. One of the herb's key active ingredients - an antioxidant called curcumin - appears to have a quelling effect on the activity of human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is a virus that promotes the development of cervical and oral cancer. There is no cure, but curcumin may offer a means of future control. "Turmeric has established antiviral and anti-cancer properties," says corresponding author Dr Alok Mishra of Emory University, Atlanta, USA. "And according to our new findings, we could say that it's good for oral health too." While Dr Mishra cannot comment on the therapeutic benefits of turmeric in cooking, he says that the use of turmeric and other anti-oxidants may be good for health in general, and HPV-related oral cancers in particular. ecancermedicalscience

Vitamin D deficiency, depression linked. Vitamin D deficiency is not just harmful to physical health--it also might impact mental health, according to a team of researchers that has found a link between seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, and a lack of sunlight. "Seasonal affective disorder is believed to affect up to 10 percent of the population, depending upon geographical location, and is a type of depression related to changes in season," said Stewart, an associate professor in the department of counseling and human development services. "Evidence exists that low levels of dopamine and serotonin are linked to depression, therefore it is logical that there may be a relationship between low levels of vitamin D and depressive symptoms," said Kimlin, a Cancer Council Queensland Professor of Cancer Prevention Research.

International Day of Yoga

"In a world of excess, of seeking after materialism, yoga promises restraint and balance. In a world suffering from mental stress, yoga promises calm. In a distracted world, yoga creates focus, creates concentration. In a world of fear, yoga promises strength and courage. A healthy body and a disciplined mind are the foundations of a world free from fear." The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi

International Day of Yoga - To honour Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of Yoga as a globally uniting force, Tech Mahindra announced its support for the cause. Underscoring the fact that global health is a long-term development objective that requires closer international cooperation through the exchange of best practices, United Nations proclaims 21st June the International Day of Yoga

CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, "We are happy to be a catalyst in the transformational journey from wellness of business to wellness of being. We strongly believe that these two can be married and the technology using the web, social media and devices can enable the growth of Yoga and bring true well-being to humanity. Tech Mahindra as a technology company feels proud to be part of this program and pledge our full-fledged support."

Vikas Swarup, Spokesperson designate Ministry of External Affairs, said, "International Day of Yoga is a key event in the global calendar, so we applaud every attempt to help make this event popular and successful. We are pleased with this CSR initiative by Tech Mahindra, which brings together two key elements of India: a 5000-year-old legacy and the current power of India's IT industry to the world."

New Delhi - Global Exhibition on Services:  The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, said India had made the transformation from a country worried about its “brain-drain,” to a country that thinks of “brain-gain.” Inaugurating the first Global Exhibition on Services, the Prime Minister said India should assess its “service” capabilities in the global perspective. He said India had vast potential to meet the skilled manpower needs of the entire world, and called for a careful mapping of global needs, which India could fulfill over the next decade. The Prime Minister mentioned sectors such as nursing, high-end financial services, arbitration, tourism, music and vegetarian cooking as examples of what India had to offer to the world, besides the already established IT and other core sectors.

Prescription for living longer - New research shows that loneliness and social isolation are just as much a threat to longevity as obesity.
"The effect of this is comparable to obesity, something that public health takes very seriously," said Julianne Holt-Lunstad. "We need to start taking our social relationships more seriously." Loneliness and social isolation can look very different. For example, someone may be surrounded by many people but still feel alone. Other people may isolate themselves because they prefer to be alone. The effect on longevity, however, is much the same for those two scenarios. Previous research puts the heightened risk of mortality from loneliness in the same category as smoking 15 cigarettes a day and being an alcoholic. This current study suggests that not only is the risk for mortality in the same category as these well-known risk factors, it also surpasses health risks associated with obesity.

Rediscovering a culture of health - It has been described as an epidemic of modern times and perhaps felt more acutely in Canada's First Nations communities than anywhere else. Over the past several decades diabetes has become a prevalent health concern among Aboriginal Canadians, but it wasn't always so.

"We know that prior to the 1950s, diabetes was essentially unheard of in Aboriginal populations in Canada," says Richard Oster, a senior research coordinator for the Believing we can Reduce Aboriginal Incidence of Diabetes (BRAID) Research group at the University of Alberta's Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. "It's since exploded to rates that are at least two to five times higher than what's found in the general population."

"What we found is that those communities that have more people speaking and knowing their language, and who are presumably more connected to their culture, have significantly less diabetes," says Oster. "In fact, some of those communities had diabetes rates that were lower than the general public rate."
Oster believes Canada's Aboriginal communities need to be allowed to revitalize their culture. As part of that he says their distinct languages also need to be urgently protected.

"We know that stress leads to diabetes. That's been proven," says Oster. "If you allow culture to be a part of your life it provides social support for people, it provides spiritual tranquility, and it provides stability in turbulent times. In part, that's how I think it can help reduce diabetes.

"Our study provides proof of something (First Nations people) have known for thousands of years -- that health and culture are inseparable." University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry. International Journal for Equity in Health.
