Green Bay Packers camp setup: Healthy Aaron Rodgers a must

Green Bay Packers camp setup: Healthy Aaron Rodgers a must

Sports
DE PERE, Wisc. -- In every way imaginable, the Green Bay Packers went backward in 2017. Green Bay failed to reach the postseason for the first time since 2008. The Packers' 7-9 record was the second worst of Mike McCarthy's 12 seasons as head coach. And after reaching the NFC Championship Game in both 2014 and 2016, the Packers were eliminated from the playoffs by mid-December. Green Bay could be poised for a bounce-back season, though. The Packers return nine starters on each side of the ball and addressed several positions of weakness in free agency. Most important, though, quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns after missing nearly 10 full games last season with a broken collarbone.

Study: Healthy obese people don't face increased death risk

July 12 (UPI) -- People who are obese but otherwise healthy do not have an increased rate of mortality, according to a study in Toronto -- conflicting with results of a major study in Europe. Researchers at York University's Faculty of Health followed 54,089 men and women from five cohort studies through 2017.

Their findings were published Thursday in the journal Clinical Obesity. "This is in contrast with most of the literature and we think this is because most studies have defined metabolic healthy obesity as having up to one metabolic risk factor," said study leader Dr. Jennifer Kuk, ...

A healthy diet can improve hearing in women, research shows

Health
May 11 (UPI) -- Eating healthier than help prevent hearing loss, new research suggests. Previous studies have examined the relationship between specific nutrients and hearing, but researchers Brigham and Women's Hospital took a more holistic view, looking at the relationship between diet and hearing. Researchers examined the health data collected by the Nurses' Health Study II, which tracked the diets and health of 70,966 women over a 22-year span. Healthy eating habits were scored using three different diet-rating systems: the alternate Mediterranean diet, or aMED; the "dietary approaches to stop hypertension," or DASH diet; and the Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010. Their analysis showed women who adhered most closely to a healthy diet were least likely to develop hearing loss duri...

This Popular Breakfast Dish Might Not Be as Healthy as You Think

I guess it's back to the overnight oats. When juice shops started whipping up fresh, antioxidant-packed açaí bowls a few years ago, everyone freaked out. In addition to being delicious, the gorgeous, painstakingly styled bowls were topped with granola and fruit and claimed a long list of health benefits. Before long, the Brazilian superfood dish was dominating our Instagram feeds. And we get it: Who wouldn't want to chow down on something that looks and tastes like ice cream, but is actually healthy for you?While these bowls do tend to be high in antioxidants and fiber—making them an undeniably better breakfast choice than, say, a donut or chocolate croissant—let's talk about the sugar levels. A quick lo
