Those of you who have been to Green Mountain at Fox Run know that a big program focus for us is to help you take what you’ve learned home for continued progress towards healthy weight management. From our “Dazzling Dressings” cooking class to our Aerobic Circuit Blast cardio class, we aim to provide strategies and solutions for making lasting lifestyle changes when you leave us. Despite our best intentions, however, we know it’s impossible to remember everything. In fact, we hear several times a week that our guests wish they could take our staff home with them for instant access.
So, we periodically feature videos from many of the popular fitness classes at Green Mountain. Can’t remember if you’re doing your abs right? Can’t remember how to properly stretch a muscle? No problem. You’ll be able to download us in your living room.
This week, LynnAnn Covell, our senior exercise specialist and longtime leader of many popular fitness classes at Green Mountain – such as Cardio on the FitBall® – is going to give you a quick overview on how to choose an exercise ball that fits you.
Vitamin D levels may relate to risk of hepatocellular cancer, according to new study
New research published in the journal Hepatology has found that low vitamin D levels may increase the risk of hepatocellular cancer.
Hepatocellular cancer (HCC) is the most common form of liver cancer and accounts for 80% of all cancers that start in the liver. This type of liver cancer begins in the main type of liver cell, called the hepatocyte, whereas other liver cancers begin in different cells such as in the bile ducts or blood vessels lining the liver.
While research on the link between vitamin D and cancer is continuously expanding, there has been only one previous trial looking at vitamin D levels and HCC incidence. This single past study followed patients within a cohort in China and found only a small non-significant increased risk of developing HCC if you had low vitamin D levels.
