Health Tip of the Day

Exercise and IBS

Keeping active helps patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) cope. IBS affects up to 20 percent of the U.S. population, primarily women, and there's no effective cure. But a University of Utah study of 1,060 people with IBS found that increased physical activity improved their quality of life. Those with the condition associated such activity with greater physical functioning and reduced symptoms.

There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
