it’s a new world

REMEMBER HOW LAST YEAR every day felt like a week? It was so disorienting to be stuck at home during the pandemic that it was hard to even track how long we’d been stuck there. A few months into this year—around when my son finally began going to school full-time—every day started to seem more like 45 minutes. The contrast was so stark, I felt as if I’d barely gotten to know 2021 before it was half over. As we get older, time does go faster, don’t you think? A month becomes a much smaller fraction of our lives than it is to, say, a 9-year-old who is not impressed when I say that it’s “only a few months” until he gets to see Grandma again. Entire years can even blend…

stone fruits for the win

It’s that happy time of year when peaches, nectarines, plums, plumcots, cherries, and apricots are at their peak. There are plenty of sweet reasons to take a bite: All these fruits are filled with fiber, vitamin C, and the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. But each variety is a nutritional standout in its own way too. Cherries are particularly high in potassium, an electrolyte that helps regulate fluid balance and muscle and nerve function, and cherries and plums get their bright hues from anthocyanins, powerful antioxidants. Plumcots (also called pluots) and apricots are rich in vitamin A, which is crucial to good eye health. And nectarines and peaches contain folate, a key player in energy production, as well as beta-carotene, another type of antioxidant, which gives their juicy flesh a yellow-orange…

at-home heart care

▶ Your doctor decides which Omron products you need—a blood pressure monitor, a body-weight scale, or both. ▶ The VitalSight kit is delivered to your home along with an electronic data hub to transmit your stats and readings to your doctor—no other Wi-Fi or cellular data use is required. ▶ If an issue or a red flag pops up, your doctor will be alerted and can address it immediately. ▶ VitalSight is currently covered by Medicare. Why is this program so helpful? For one thing, it makes it easy for people to keep up with their medical care without frequent in-person appointments. It also fills a hole for those living in underserved communities or geographic areas with limited health care access. Omron hopes the closer monitoring will result in fewer heart attacks and strokes…

could you—and your dog—live longer?

Why dogs? KC: They’re excellent translational models for the study of aging in people—dogs get most of the same diseases, are genetically diverse, and share our environment. By better understanding how lifestyle and genes impact dog health, we can offer dog owners better guidance to help them make the best care decisions for their dogs. Could we actually slow aging in dogs—or humans? MK: We’ve already identified interventions that slow aging in lab mice, and everything I know about biology makes me believe some of these will have the same effect in dogs and also in people. As part of DAP, we’re studying one such intervention. What stage is the project in now? MK: The DAP Pack has over 30,000 participating dogs, and soon we’ll start separating them into sample cohorts. I’m excited by how…
