Breastfeeding Can Prevent Cancer 
A new study shows that breastfeeding is associated with a lower risk of breast cancer among certain women. The long-term study, published in the latest issue of The Archives of Internal Medicine, looked at more than 60,000 women. It found that women with a close family members with a history of breast cancer had a significantly lower risk of developing breast cancer before menopause if they breastfed their babies, compared to women who did not breastfeed, ABC News reported. The amount of risk reduction was comparable to that seen by women at very high risk for breast cancer who take the hormone therapy tamoxifen for preventative purposes.

Is Testosterone to Blame for the Financial Crisis?
Articles have been written trying to determine all of the many reasons that our economy is in its current state of collapse.  One of the theories not publicized much is the one blaming the fall of our nation on an over abundance of Testosterone.  Could it be possible?  Could that one wonderful hormone that attracts us to the male species possibly be the culprit? Well studies do show that testosterone may have indeed had a part.  Apparently, high levels of testosterone are correlated with riskier financial behavior.  Therefore, men with higher testosterone levels made riskier investments than those with lower levels. The studies show that those with 33% more testosterone than average men invested 10 percent more of their money.
The findings were based on saliva samples from 98 male Harvard students taken before they played an investment game with $250 in real money. The students with more masculine facial features, such as prominent jaws and cheekbones, also were riskier with their cash, investing 6 percent more of it than their softer-featured peers.  

The scientists didn't study women, and while the fairer sex makes far less testosterone, those with more of it would likely behave similarly to men, the study shows.  A 2005 study showed that women made riskier bids on experimental auctions when they were menstruating and their levels of the female  sex hormones estrogen and progesterone were lowest. So perhaps the question is "If women were running the show would the stock market be in a different place today?"

Getting Ready For Fall 
One of the main reasons most of us decide to live in this beautiful town is that there is such great weather year round.  So even though summer is almost over and fall is fast approaching, there is no reason for the depression that often sets in with the thought of cold gray days.  We are blessed with year round sunshine. 
However, sometimes we do  get a bit lazy and with the cooler breezes find ourselves backing off from our workouts and piling on more clothes so we can hide our flaws.  So what can we do to prevent falling into these bad patterns?
Exercise: Physical activity boosts serotonin levels, which helps lift depression.  Take brisk walks, sign up for an exercise class through your local adult education program, or just park further away when you run chores, so you get some extra walking along the way.
Get More Light: One of the reasons that fall and winter months tend to be more depressing is that there is less daylight in which to luxuriate.  Make an effort to open the blinds in the house and let in more light.  Shutting off lamps and using natural light can also lower your electric bill.
Make Healthy Diet Changes:  Taking some small steps to change your diet can result in some drastic results.  Something as simple as replacing carbs with whole grains can make a difference, since whole grains take longer to digest  keeping us full longer and less likely to overeat.
Be More Social:  As the weather changes a bit and cooler temperatures prevail, it becomes easier to stay in the house more and socialize less.  Even though our weather change is minimal when "summer activities" become less frequent we often find ourselves becoming couch potatoes.  The key is to not let this happen.  Make an effort to get out and socialize with friends and relatives. 
 Surfing the Internet Can Make You Smarter
Researchers at UCLA recently concluded that spending hours on the Internet , surfing the web, might not be as mindless an activity as previously believed.  It was found that Internet searching stimulates brain activity.  The simple action of deciding which site to visit, when presented with many search options, gives our brains a workout.  So the next time you realize you have just spent hours online, and don't know where the time went, at least you know you were improving your mind.
