The study found that only 5 percent of U.S. high school students are achieving all three of those important health-related goals. The findings were particularly dismal for girls: Just 3 percent of teenage girls are meeting the three health targets, compared to 7 percent of boys. The researchers describe the findings as “startling.” “I expected the percentage of adolescents meeting all three requirements concurrently to be low, but not this low,” said Gregory Knell, the study’s lead author and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Texas, in a released statement. “The results are a wake-up call for everyone who wants to make sure our children have a healthy future,” he added. Not isolated factors Most health guidelines recommend eight to 10 hours of sleep each night … [Read more...] about Only 1 in 20 U.S. teens meet sleep, exercise and screen-time recommendations

Published in JAMA Psychiatry, this new study shows that exercise combats depression, particularly in middle-age. Led by Dr. Madhukar Trivedi, director of the center for depression research and clinical care at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, the researchers found that being fit can lower the risk of developing depression. Bonus: working out also fights the risk of developing heart disease and dying early. “Depression doesn’t exist in a vacuum,” says Trivedi, senior author of the paper, as Time notes. “Especially for people who are older, depression has a complicated … [Read more...] about Can exercise battle depression?
