How a Celebrity Trainer Made Us Consider the Difference Between Health and Fitness

Athletes and fitness experts are people who we look up to as they’ve managed to achieve certain things that we might aspire to someday, whether it’d be getting fit or just leading a healthier life. It’s because of that that it becomes shocking when we find out that they can still go through some of the health problems we might face, even though they’re supposed to be healthier. That issue came into the limelight recently when professional fitness guru and host of the American TV show, The Biggest Loser, Bob Harper suffered a heart attack that left the whole world talking.

What We Never Knew About Diabetes

A recent study from Umea University in Sweden, published in JAMA Internal Medicine has come up with some impressive results. In one part of the study, researchers were able to discover that in a group of 4046 genetically identical twins, the twin with a higher BMI (Body Mass Index) does not have an increased risk of mortality or heart disease. At the same time, they discovered that losing weight might not have any effect on reducing your chances of suffering from a heart attack.
