Older Mothers Deliver “Smarter” Babies!

 

Is this the fruits of maturity? A study found that the offspring of older women are less likely to have accidents or need hospital care and more likely to have been vaccinated early. They will also develop a broader vocabulary from a young age and achieve higher scores in IQ tests in a range of measures up to the age of five. A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all the older moms.  Chances are the cards and gifts you received were “smarter” because chances are your kids are smarter! Despite the many fears associated with older moms, children born to mothers over 40 are apparently healthier and smarter than those of younger women.

Teenage Sex Leads To Higher Divorce Rates

I was watching television the other day with my three-year-old daughter Katie in my lap, as usual, and a Subaru commercial came on. The dad was giving this little girl last minute safe driving instructions and then the keys, as she turns into a 16-year-old out for her first solo drive.

News Flash! Binge Drinking Causes Beer Bellies

You know what “they”  say about starting a weight loss program….talk about it…make it known that you are trying to shed a few so that others can watch your behavior and  help hold you to it…by way of encouragement or humiliation… depending upon the personality of your friends.  So I’m in…let the humiliation begin.  But as I prepare to say good-by to the beer belly, let’s at least acknowledge from whence it came. AskMen.com reports a beer belly comes from binging, not necessarily beer drinking. A study at University College London examined data from 28,594 middle-aged men and women, and found that beer drinkers aren't more likely to have abdominal fat than non-beer drinkers. (Good point…mine is clearly cheeseburger driven.)  People who drink 80 grams of alcohol in a single sitting once a month -- about a six-pack of beer or a bottle of wine -- average a half-inch bigger waistline than people who drink the same amount of alcohol spread over a week.

Black Is The New White – 61 Now Middle Age

A U.S. survey indicates 61 seems old or middle-aged to those age 45 and younger, while those older than 61 tend to see it young.  The new poll found that 63 percent of those surveyed said they thought 61 was middle-age, 15 percent said 61 was young, while 22 percent said it was old. The perspective of age depends on what side of 61 one is. Those of us in the vicinity of 61 are only too happy to hear we’re considered middle aged regardless of the reason. In fact, for some of us, that revelation may even be the inspiration to start living in such a healthy manner so as to make it a self fulfilling prophesy.  The day of the dinosaur postponed indefinitely!

Age is just a number, right?  That’s said more often and with more gusto the older you get.  When I was a kid we thought 40 was middle aged…but the times they are a changing.  Now there’s talk that middle age is …are you ready…61!  I like!   And while I wish it had more to do with an expanding healthy life expectancy…it really results from the growing number of folks reporting in from the far side of the calendar.
