Optimal walking speed to thwart diabetes

Walking at least 2.5 mph can lower your diabetes risk by 15% when compared to walking at a stroll, new research shows. Once the threshold is met, risk continues to decline by 9% with every 0.6 mph increase. Experts say a rule of thumb is to walk at a pace at which you’re able to talk, but unable to sing the words to your favorite song.

These foods increase lifespan by a decade

Foods like whole grains, nuts, and fruits can increase your lifespan by a decade, new research shows. The study analyzed the eating patterns of almost half a million individuals starting in 2006. Data shows that men and women who switched to a healthier diet in their 40s added about a decade to their life expectancy.

US suicides reach record level

Suicide rates in the United States in 2022 were the highest they’ve been since 1941, data shows. In 2022, an estimated 49,449 people died by suicide which is 3% higher than the rate in 2021.
