New study reveals the best cities to live a healthy and happy life –

Living a long and healthy life is highly influenced by environmental factors, such as diet and lifestyle. A recentstudyconfirmed the impact of five lifestyle habits, such as smoking, physical activity, alcohol intake, body weight, and diet, on both total life expectancy and chronic diseases.

But how to maintain a healthy lifestyle?

To determine the best places to lead a healthy and happy lifestyle,Lenstorehas analysed 44 global cities across 10 metrics ranging from sunshine hours to the average cost of a gym membership.

Once again, Amsterdam ranks at the top of the best cities to live a healthy and happy life

Here, the top 11 healthiest cities: rating by City / Average life expectancy / Happiness level

1 Amsterdam / 81.2 / 7.44

Amsterdam ranks as the number one location for leading a healthy lifestyle across all 44 cities. Known as one of the most bike-friendly cities in the world, its perhaps no surprise the Dutch capital comes out on top. With over 400 outdoor activities to keep you fit and healthy, and ranking as the 5th happiest country in the world, as well as the 6th best country in Europe for obesity levels at just 20.4% (nearly 10% less compared to London at 27.8%), living in this picturesque city is the top destination for leading a healthy lifestyle.

2 Sydney / 82.1 / 7.22

Sydney experiences 2,636 hours of sunshine hours per year, attracting tourists to the famous Bondi beach, but also giving you more than enough time to take advantage of the 406 outdoor activities. This outweighs the relatively high monthly gym membership cost of 42 and with a life expectancy of 82 years, perhaps outdoor fitness is the way to go.

3 Vienna / 81 / 7.29

Well known for its cultural impact, Vienna not only lets you soak up culture from artwork, music and architecture, but it also offers the opportunity to lead a healthy lifestyle. With an average gym membership costing around 26 per month (nearly half the cost than in Sydney), and the fifth lowest levels of obesity in Europe at 20.1%, the Austrian capital is the perfect destination to lead a healthier life.

Viennas pollution level is also one of the lowest of all cities analysed at 17.33 (out of 100), which is over four times lower than the likes of Beijing with a pollution score of 85.43 (out of 100) and three times lower than Barcelona, Paris and London.

4 Stockholm / 81.8/ 7.35

When looking at the metric for the total number of hours worked per year, Stockholm ranks in 4th position at 1,452 hours (30.25 hours per week), offering more opportunity for a better work-life balance. Taking into consideration other metrics such as its low level of pollution (20/100) and general happiness throughout the city (7/10), Stockholm ranks in 4th position overall.

5 Copenhagen / 79.8 / 7.64

Known as one of the happiest cities in the world (ranking second, beaten only by Helsinki in our research), Copenhagen rounds off our top five healthiest places to live in the world.

If youre looking for the ultimate work-life balance, Copenhagen is the destination for you. It has the lowest working hours per year of all cities at 1,380 (28.75 hours per week). And for those that want to breathe in fresh air, the Danish capital ranks as the city with the fifth cleanest air, with a pollution score of 21.24 (out of 100).

However living in Copenhagen doesnt come cheap. It ranks in third position for the highest cost of a bottle of water at 2.19, outweighing both New York (1.32) and London (1.16).

6 Helsinki / 80.4 / 7.80

Ranking as the happiest city, Helsinki has the lowest pollution score of all cities at 13.08/100. It also features in the top 10 when looking at just the lowest number of yearly working hours. With the happiest citizens, clean air and a healthy work-life balance, Helsinkis number six position is well deserved.

7 Fukuoka / 83.2 / 5.87

Located in the northern shore of Japans Kyushu Island, Fukuoka is probably best known for its food, but its ability to lead a healthy lifestyle shouldnt go overlooked. With a bottle of water costing just 0.78, its easy to ensure youre drinking the recommended 2 litres a day even on the move. The city also has the highest life expectancy at 83.2 years of all 44 locations.

8 Berlin / 80.6 / 7.07

Another city steeped in culture, Berlins average life expectancy is 80.6 years, which may be supported by its relatively cheap average monthly gym membership at 26.11 third cheapest in Europe. Germanys capital also has lots of opportunity to get out in the fresh air with the fifth highest number of outdoor activities in Europe at 254 and the ninth lowest pollution levels in Europe.

9 Barcelona / 82.2 / 6.40

Whilst Barcelona is one of Europes most visited cities, its also in the top 10 for healthy living. Barcelona takes the top spot for the number of outdoor activities with over 580 which is great when paired with its 2,591 sunshine hours.

10 Vancouver / 81.70 / 7.23

Vancouver is famous for offering every kind of outdoor sport and adventure, pioneering health and fitness. With an average life expectancy of 81.7 years, a relatively low pollution score (24/100) and happy residents (7/10), Vancouver rounds off our top 10 locations for living a healthy lifestyle.

11 Melbourne / 82.10 / 7.22

12 Beijing / 75.40 / 5.12

Beijing offers higher salary compare to living expense. The city contains business districts along with world heritage sites.Life expectancy is at 75.40 and fitness membership cost around 38.62. It is a recommended place to at least live once in a lifetime and experience good culture shock.

13 Bangkok / 74.10 / 5.99

Bangkok is another good place to live at least once. With combination of 2,624 sunshine hour and life expectancy rate at 74.10 years make Thailand reached 13th on the rank.

Plant-Based Beverages Market Rising Shift Towards Healthy Lifestyle, Clean-Label Food And Beverage Products Across The World To Boost The Market…

""Grand View Research, Inc. Market Research And Consulting.""

The continued push towards healthy and clean-label food and beverage products across the world, coupled with the rising instances of lactose and dairy intolerance, have pushed the demand for plant-based beverages, according to an exhaustive report by Grand View Research.

The global plant-based beverages market is anticipated to be worth USD 22.9 billion by 2027, progressing at a healthy CAGR of 8.0% over the forecast period, as per a study by Grand View Research, Inc. Plant-based beverages, as the name implies, are prepared through the extraction of various parts of plants, such as grain or seeds, in water. The market has witnessed an exponential growth in popularity and demand, coinciding with the rise of the health-conscious consumer. Proponents of healthy lifestyle are encouraging others to shift from conventional food to more natural and healthy plant-based products, which is a major factor driving industry growth. Furthermore, the global vegan population is a major driver for the demand of plant derived beverages and food products. Plant-based milk is also gaining wide popularity among consumers with lactose intolerance condition, which has helped in widening the industry scope.

Lactose intolerance is one of the fastest growing disorders globally, which is anticipated to boost the scope for plant-based beverages, as a replacement for dairy-based milk. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, an estimated 5% to 17% of the population in Europe suffers from lactose intolerance, whereas 44% of Americans fall in this category. Major developed economies such as the U.S., the U.K., Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Italy have witnessed a large proportion of their population move towards plant-based food and beverage offerings. According to statistics provided by The Vegan Society, the U.K. has the largest vegan population, which quadrupled from 2014 to 2019, whereas the vegan population in the U.S. reached 19.6 million in 2017, which was 600% more from 2014. These market trends are anticipated to boost the demand for plant-based beverages over the forecast period.

The market for plant-based beverages can be broadly classified on the basis of product and flavor. Some of the notable products include soy base, coconut base, rice base, almond base, oat base, and hemp base, among others. These products are either found in a plain or flavored form. The major players in the industry include Dhler GmbH; PACIFIC FOODS OF OREGON, LLC.; WhiteWave Foods Company; Blue Diamond Growers Inc.; SunOpta; and The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. With a continued increase in demand for plant-based beverages from consumers, manufacturers are heavily involved in the introduction of innovative products in the market, especially over the past few years. The current outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has only strengthened the market demand, as consumers have put more focus on immunity, health, and sustainability.

Further key findings suggest:

1 Plant-based beverages consist of a number of ingredients such as tricalcium phosphate, dipotassium phosphate, calcium carbonate, folic acid, zinc oxide, riboflavin, ergocalciferol, and magnesium phosphate, among others

2 According to a research carried out by Brisan Group, 48% of the participants stated that they have consumed plant-based beverages, while more than 36% stated that they consider these beverages for snacking; as a result, the industry is expected to model itself on the basis of such consumer preferences

3 Oat milk has seen a huge spike in its demand in the United States, with its popularity growing by 250% in 2020 in the country; this was reflected in the sales of oat milk in March 2020, which was 478% higher than that in March 2019

4 Soy-based milk accounted for a share of more than 30% of the global revenue in 2019 in the plant-based beverage market; the segment has gained popularity as it is a rich source of nutritional ingredients including vitamin A and B-12, proteins, isoflavones, and potassium

5 The coconut base segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR of 8.6% from 2020 to 2027, as growing awareness regarding weight management among the working-class population is projected to promote the use of coconut milk as a healthy alternative

6 The flavored segment is expected to witness fastest growth of 8.3% over the forecast period, owing to new product and flavor launches by industry participants, which are gaining traction, particularly among the youth population

7 Asia Pacific is the largest plant-based beverage consuming region with a market share of more than 30% in 2019, owing to high concentration of buyers in countries such as China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Japan

8 North America is projected to be the fastest growing region with a CAGR of 8.3% from 2020 to 2027 on account of the rapidly expanding vegan population and increasing prevalence of lactose intolerance in U.S. and Canada

9 The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has led to consumers veering more towards healthy food and beverage offerings, with an extensive survey carried out between April and July 2020 across 18 countries reporting that 23% of the consumers stated that they would increase their future intake of plant-based food and drinks

10Key industry players in the plant-based beverage market are implementing strategies such as capacity expansion, geographical advancements, new product launches, and mergers and acquisitions, as a means of garnering higher market share

11In November 2020, SunOpta announced an investment of USD 26 million into its oat processing facility based in Minnesota, as a solution to meet the higher demand for their oat milk products in the United States; the expansion will enable the company to increase the production to 4 times the current capacity

12In September 2020, Starbucks announced the addition of two new seasonal plant-based beverage offerings, the Almondmilk Hazelnut Latte and the Oatmilk Cocoa Macchiato, at their stores in the countries of New Zealand, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong

‘Where I Needed to Be’ | News Center | University of Nevada, Las Vegas – UNLV NewsCenter

Talk to Dr. Brandi Alexander about why she chose family medicine as her speciality and she quickly says she loves being able to care for patients that range from the very young to seniors.

It provides the variety I need to remain stimulated by my everyday work, she said.

UNLV Medicine's Family Medicine Clinic at 1524 Pinto Lane, where Alexander sees patients, handles thousands of patient visits per year, including expectant mothers, children, adults and the elderly. Also under its health care umbrella is the UNLV Medicine Sports Medicine Clinic, whose doctors also treat members of the Vegas Golden Knights hockey team and the Las Vegas Aviators Triple-A minor league baseball club.

In addition to treating and diagnosing illness, Alexander and her colleagues provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

UNLV Medicine family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists.They provide ongoing personal care for the countrys most serious health problems like diabetes, cancer, stroke, and heart disease, referring patients when necessary to another specialist for treatment.

An assistant professor with the School of Medicine since November, Alexander grew up around the practice of medicine.

Her mother was a secretary at a hospital in Union City, Tennessee, so seeing doctors and nurses was as common for Alexander as seeing cars driving down the street.

I visited my mom all the time at the hospital as a little girl, she said. I dont know exactly when I decided to become a doctor but it just seemed like it would be a natural part of life to me.

Her interest in medicine only grew stronger, she said, when an aunt bought her a science kit from a JC Penney catalog that contained a microscope and slides.

It was something I really wanted but it seemed very expensive at the time, Alexander said. I just loved it. It helped me see things in so many different ways.

Academics were always important in the Alexander household.

As far as I can remember, my mom took the time to read to me and help me with spelling words. She never turned down the opportunity to stay at the library with me for hours while I searched for books to read. I do come from a family of readers. My grandmother had two bookcases with hundreds of books shed read twice over.

Alexander enjoys reading about Black physicians and professionals and their contributions to medicine and the nation, information that often wasnt readily available during her early schooling.

A graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Alexander graduated from Meharry Medical College in the same city. At Meharry she also completed a primary care and enhancement fellowship.

Her family medicine residency was completed at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Ohio. In 2020, she also completed a fellowship in maternal child health at West Suburban Medical Center/PCC Community Wellness in Oak Park, Illinois.

There is one childbirth case that Alexander assisted on during her maternal health/obstetrics fellowship that shell never forget.

I had only met the patient briefly to introduce myself and let her know that I would be assisting in her procedure. Oftentimes, nerves kick in once the patient is placed on the operating table and patients begin to look to us for comfort. As were getting her ready she said, Where is my girl?Where is my girl with the braids. That day, the girl with the braids was me.

"In a field where African American women experience increased rates of morbidity and mortality because of discrimination, it was important for me to comfort her and assure her that wed listen to her and do our best at caring for her and her growing family. I felt very blessed. That I was where I needed to be. Being an advocate for women is very important to me.

Married to Dr. Justin Jeffries, who is completing a Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship with the UNLV School of Medicine, Alexander has set long-term goals.

Eventually, I hope to incorporate more obstetrics in my practice to use my full scope of training, she said. I love the variety that it adds to family medicine. During residency, I served on several diversity committees to increase the numbers of underrepresented minorities in medicine, so I hope to get back to that. I also had a scholarship that I awarded to students from my high school. Im working on revamping the scholarship in a foundation aimed at mentorship and providing students in high school and higher education with school supplies and study materials for things like the [Medical College Admission Test]."

Is Cauliflower-Crust Pizza Healthy? A Dietitian Says Yes and No . . . – POPSUGAR

Cauliflower has been a magical shapeshifter in the low-carb world, able to manifest itself as many other popular foods including rice, oatmeal, and probably most magical of all: pizza crust. But is cauliflower pizza crust healthy? POPSUGAR asked registered dietitian Rhyan Geiger, RDN, to weigh in.

Cauliflower everything has been on the rise for the last few years, and this is likely because of the health halo that has been surrounding cauliflower products, Geiger explained. "A health halo is a perception that a particular food is healthy even when there is little or no evidence showing it to be true," she said. Cauliflower itself is healthy since it's a low-carb, fiber-rich cruciferous veggie, which has been shown to be preventative against certain types of cancers. But it's often added to products only because of its popularity in being low-carb, not for its health benefits. "I do think it's great that people are wanting to eat more vegetables with this trend," she said.

Companies use the health halo of cauliflower to their advantage, but if you look at the ingredients list on cauliflower-crust pizzas, cauliflower isn't the only ingredient. It is a flour (often refined flour!) crust with cauliflower added, Geiger explained, and often cheese and egg are added as a binder and to make the crust softer, which increases the cholesterol and saturated fat. Processed food any way you look at it is still processed and not the healthiest option.

The calorie amount and healthfulness also depend on the toppings added. If your cauliflower crust is loaded with extra cheese, sausage, pepperoni, buffalo chicken, or ranch dressing, it's still a high-calorie, high-fat pizza. Because of these toppings, there's not much difference in the nutritional composition when compared to regular pizza, because cauliflower-crust pizza isn't low in calories or fat and still contains carbs. So this means eating it often likely won't help you reach your weight-loss goals.

Homemade cauliflower crust or store-bought crust that is mostly cauliflower can be a healthy option, though, Geiger said. If you want to make your own, try this vegan cauliflower-crust recipe made from a whole head of cauliflower, almond meal, and herbs.

All foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle. It just depends on how often and how much a person eats, Geiger said. Eating high-calorie, high-fat pizza (cauliflower or regular) every day wouldn't be recommended, but having pizza every once in a while is fine. To make pizza healthier, try eating fewer slices with half the plate being some type of vegetable, and go for homemade as often as possible. "Add a variety of vegetables to your pizza toppings, and skip out on high-fat processed items like meats and cheese," she also suggested. Adding veggies like mushrooms, red peppers, onions, and tomatoes to your pizza will increase the fiber and make it more filling without adding tons of calories.

From the Extension: Be heart smart in your food choices – Daily Commercial

Lori Johnson| UF/IFAS Family & Consumer Science Agent

February is American Heart Month with the goal of creating awareness of the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle to prevent heart disease. Changes made could help reduce the risk of additional chronic diseases from developing or their severity. Small changes over time can make a lasting effect on your daily habits, food choicesand health status. Remember to balance what you eat with physical activity, aiming for at least 150 minutes a week.

When grocery shopping, review food labels and nutrition facts to have a better understanding of what you are consuming. Compare products in serving size and the nutrition they provide. To make heart-healthy choices, aim for foods that are 1g or less of saturated fat per serving and zero trans-fat. You can also reduce your fat and sodium intake by choosing reduced or light, which will provide 25 percentor 50 percentless compared to the regular product. Fiber also contributes to heart health and 5 grams per serving is considered a good source.

Aim to stock your pantry with heart-healthy choices from each of the food groups to balance your plate and nutrition. Choose seasonal fresh fruits and veggies or frozen in a variety of colors. If choosing canned fruits, ensure they are packed in water or light syrup. For vegetables, look for reduced-sodium or no salt added.

When choosing grains like bread, pasta, crackersand tortillas, focus on the ingredient lists and look for the whole before the grain used in the food or labeled as 100 percentwhole grain. Your protein choices can vary from meats, poultry, fish, nuts, and seeds to legumes. Choose leaner cuts of meat such as 90 percentor higher lean ground beef, skinless poultry, or pork tenderloin as a few examples.

Fresh or frozen salmon, albacore tuna, herringor mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids which are healthy fats. They can help to reduce the build-up of fat in our arteries and unhealthy fats in our blood. Each week try to include at least twoservings of non-fried fish;oneserving of fish is about 4 ounces cooked.

Monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats can help improve your total cholesterol and heart health. You can find these in protein foods such as nuts and seeds and peanut butter. Other heart-healthy protein choices include edamame, tofu, lentils, and beans like pinto, black, garbanzo, white and navy. To complete your meals and snacks add low fat or nonfat milk, yogurt, or cottage cheese. Add low-fat and reduced-fat cheese to sandwiches, salads, or eggsor try string cheese as a snack.

Ditch the salt-shaker and flavor foods with fresh or dried herbs and spices. A little can go a long way:try different flavor combinations to see which you like best. Try preparing your foods by either baking, broiling, saut, steamingor grilling. When baking, substitute butter or oil with applesauce or other pureed fruit. During preparation, use canola or olive oil for a heart-healthy choice. Healthy choices made every day can help keep our bodies healthy and our hearts strong.

Being regular at exercise can reduce the risk of 13 kinds of cancer: American Cancer Society

According to the World Health Organization, the number of people diagnosed with cancer increased by almost 10 million in the past two decades. Of the newly diagnosed cancers, breast cancer is the most common (12%), followed by lung cancer (11%), colorectal cancer (10%) and prostate cancer (7%). By 2040, it has been predicted that the number of newly diagnosed cases of cancer will be nearly 50% higher than in 2020, reports WHO. Several cancers can be cured if they are diagnosed on time and treated properly. Vaccination can help preventing certain cancers like cervical cancer (HPV vaccine) and liver cancer (hepatitis B).

Believe it or not, several kinds of cancers can be prevented and well-managed by following a healthy lifestyle. WHO shared some of these lifestyle measures on Instagram recently. Here are they:

LIVE WELL: TSET approves youth advocacy and education program – Stillwater News Press

The Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust Board of Directors is seeking to empower Oklahoma youth to improve health outcomes for future generations. Teens are facing increasing threats to good health as rates of vaping and obesity continue to climb in Oklahoma and nationally.

The TSET Board of Directors on Tuesday approved a proposal to launch a four-year youth advocacy and education program. The plan is the second phase of the TSET Healthy Youth Initiative that began this past fall with a youth-focused media campaign to educate on the risks of vapor use.

Changing behaviors and preventing chronic disease are key to improving the health of Oklahomans, and healthy behaviors learned early last into adulthood, said TSET Board Chair Michelle Stephens. Creating a healthier future for Oklahoma starts with todays youth. This program will seek out youth leaders and volunteers to advocate for policies and lead activities that will improve health for other youth and for all Oklahomans.

Tobacco use and obesity contribute to the leading causes of preventable death in Oklahoma heart disease and cancer. The TSET Board of Directors have identified youth prevention and health improvement as a priority in their multi-year strategic plan. The TSET Board approved a proposal from Rescue Agency, a group focusing on behavior change, to implement and manage the new program expected to launch later this year.

The program will have two main components: a youth engagement program that high school students can join, and educational and policy change activities lead by youth.

The program seeks to partner with existing high school clubs and student councils to recruit and train high-school youth in tobacco use prevention, physical activity and nutrition education activities to improve community health.

The talents, creativity and energy of Oklahomas youth are an untapped resource for promoting health in our state, said TSET Executive Director Julie Bisbee. By empowering our young people and helping them hone their leadership skills, these young leaders will have a greater understanding of their role in creating a healthier future for Oklahoma.

The first phase of the TSET Healthy Youth Initiative is a multifaceted statewide media campaign that addresses vapor, tobacco use and obesity among Oklahoma youth ages 13-18. The educational messages launched on TV, cable and radio in 2020.

TheTSET Healthy Youth Initiativeis a statewide effort focused on preventing and reducing tobacco use and obesity for Oklahomans ages 13-18. The initiative promotes healthy lifestyle choices for teens and gives adults resources to support children in maintaining or developing healthy habits for a lifetime.

TheOklahoma Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust(TSET) serves as a partner and bridge builder for organizations shaping a healthier future for all Oklahomans. TSET provides leadership at the intersections of health by working with local coalitions and initiatives across the state, cultivating innovative and life-changing research, and working across public and private sectors to develop, support, implement and evaluate creative strategies to take advantage of emerging opportunities to improve the publics health.

A healthier routine is bound to result in fitness and overall physical wellbeing,prevent diseases and positively impact mental health as well. But seldom does it occur to us that healthy living can also benefit us financially. Cultivating healthy living offersseveral financial benefits.

Read on to find out why health truly is wealth and three ways in which you can usher a financially sound 2021, by resolving to Be fit, be protected, be happy.

Day to day savings and lower medical bills

Research has found that, on average, a person who walks or otherwise exercises for 150 minutes each week spends less on medical expenses than those who fail to reach that threshold. Quite simply, this amount results in money that is saved from making fewer doctor visits, and less expenditure on prescription costs.

While there is a range of comprehensive and affordable financial solutions in the form of health insurance and critical illness riders available today to protect against the impact of a range of illnesses, a fitter routine, exercise, and healthy lifestyle can go a long way in preventing you from some of these diseases. Amongst the many financial benefits ofbeing fit, this is one that can make the most difference in your life.

Pay lower premiums on the policy

Life insurers pay distinct attention to your medical history when underwriting a policy because a person who is in excellent health is considered less likely to fall prey to life-threatening ailments. For example, premiums for smokers can often be higher than for non-smokers. Simply put, insurers stress on your health status when issuing a policybecause this is a premium-determinant, and the healthier you are, the lower premiums youre likely to pay.

Earn financial rewards to stay fit

Innovative companies across the globe are increasingly developing products that encourage healthy behavior among policyholders and in turn financially reward them withrenewal premium discounts.

To reinforce healthier living, many health and general insurance companies today offer discounts based on positive alterations you make such as physical exercises, running, swimming, and leading a fit lifestyle in general.

For instance, insurers today offer wellness app with features such as a step count, wellness assessment score, medicine reminder, daily health tips, digitized access to all health reports and a wellness calculator. They also offer renewal premium discounts based on health milestones accomplished. For example, recording a minimum of 50,000 steps on the app can accumulate one Healthy Week in a week and depend on the number of Healthy Weeks accumulated, the life insured is eligible for a discount (up to 10%) on rider premium at the time of renewal, contributing to both, their health and wealth.

While we may not know what course the pandemic is likely to take, we do know that taking care of our health and overall wellbeing is more important now than ever before. With these small but prudent steps, we can adopt a healthy lifestyle in 2021 for the win.
