Summer, Sasha & Shadow

Happy pack on a walk.

Dogs that come to stay together in ready-made families find it so much easier to adapt to new surroundings and people looking after them and are often less trouble than single dogs.

Minimal exercise can prevent disease, weight gain in menopausal women

Past research has indicated that metabolic function is critical for women to prevent cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes after they reach menopause. Now, according to new research from the University of Missouri, minimal exercise may be all it takes for postmenopausal women to better regulate insulin, maintain metabolic function and help prevent significant weight gain. These findings suggest that women can take a proactive approach and may not need to increase their physical activity dramatically to see significant benefits from exercise.

Genes May Be Causing Neuroinflammation and Pain in Fibromyalgia

This study examined whether FM patients carry gene variants which make it easier for glial cell activation occur to occur via the TSPO receptor, or which lower the amount of serotonin present. A positive result would suggest that the brains of people with fibromyalgia are genetically susceptible to producing neuroinflammation and/or reducing GABA levels.

DWP scraps retesting for chronically ill sickness benefits claimants

Green said the change was being made because it was pointless to repeatedly test claimants who are not going to get better. He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I believe in a welfare state where you have got to be hard-headed, but you shouldn’t be hard-hearted. “We want the welfare state to work for everyone, just as we want the economy to work for everyone, and there are a group of people for whom constant reassessment is pointless and which does increase their stress and anxiety levels.”"
