health relaationships

By Michael Roizen, MD, and Mehmet Oz, MD

Grant Woods’ American Gothic portrays an aging farm couple who look a lot alike, despite her bun and his overalls. If you and your spouse also look more alike now than you did as newlyweds, well, shared habits and experiences shape your expressions, wrinkles, and folds, creating similarities that weren’t there when you were younger.

But superficial worry-lines aren’t all that can develop as years go by. Research shows some couples become similarly UN-healthy: If one person in a couple is obese, there’s a 37% chance the other will become obese too. And if your partner or spouse has type 2 diabetes, then you face a 26 percent increased risk of developing diabetes also.

But what we noticed about these studies was that many more of you do not become obese or develop diabetes when your partner does. And we’re interested in supporting YOU to become “The Influencer” in your house by making better health fun—even seductive.

Make a walking date: Take a daily stroll for 10 days running (it’ll set the habit). Then get his and hers pedometers; set goals for the next four months, heading for 10,000 steps a day.

Together, start your own cooking show: How about Chopped meets Your Kitchen Makeover? Here's what to chop -- get rid of foods with added sugar or syrup and trans fats, any grain not 100% whole grain, and red meat. Your kitchen makeover -- a week’s menu featuring ingredients and dishes you’ve never tried before.

Remember -- share hugs and laughter! Focus on the make-you-younger RealAge benefits of a livelier sexual relationship, and the healthier life you want for both of you!

sight sound touch taste smell

The body has 5 main senses:






sensors in the middle ear detect the head's position and movements while those in muscles and joints bring information about the poition of the body and limbs.

Which helps us to keep our balance

Other micro sensors detect internal body conditons such as temperature and blood pressure.

Smells are scent molecules taken into the nose when we breathe

Something like a lock and key, when a particle fits properly ,only then is a nerve signal sent to the brain.

Taste relies on sensors in the tongue, "the taste buds are on the top of the tongue" as the saying goes.

The tip of the tongue is sensitive to sweet tastes, the front sides to salty, the rear sides to sour, the middle rear to bitter

The sense of touch relies on sensors in the skin, including light touch and heavy pressure, heat and cold, movements and vibrations.

In the fingertips there are 10,000 microsensors in every square millimetre of the skin.

Sight is more difficult and we'll cover that another day.

And some on hearing, too as opposed to balance explained in this post.


What computer systems are supported?

News from Lumosity

The following list shows which systems we have tested Lumosity on and can guarantee performance with. The largest impacting factors for site performance are your browser (what you use to access online content), your operating system (how your computer runs and stores files, programs, etc), and your Flash Player (a browser extension built by Adobe that allows interactive content such as games to run).

Because computer technologies rapidly change, we are not able to guarantee that Lumosity will function flawlessly on all systems. Newer technologies tend offer better experiences, so we try to stay up-to-date with the newest versions of each system, and older versions will eventually become unsupported. To optimize your web experience, we strongly recommend using the latest versions of browsers and Flash Players available for your operating system.

If you are not sure what browser, operating system, or Flash Player you have, visit Information about your browser and computer will be automatically detected and reported to you.

We support the following browsers, operating systems and Flash Players:

Supported Operating Systems
•Windows: XP, Vista, 7 and 8
•Mac: Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion, and Mavericks (or OSX 10.4 )
* At this time, Linux is not supported. Since Adobe has stopped releasing Flash updates after 11.2, we recommend that Linux users access Lumosity using Chromium, which has a Pepper Flash that is up to date. In addition, Linux users may encounter some strange behavior in our games, including but not limited to incorrect key mapping. We hope to completely support this operating system in the future. If you experience any game issues in Linux, we recommend switching to a different operating system if possible.

* At this time, Linux is not supported as Adobe has stopped releasing Flash updates for this operating system. Linux users may encounter some strange behavior in our games, including but not limited to incorrect key mapping. For best results, we recommend that Linux users access Lumosity using Chromium, which comes with its own version of Flash that is up to date.

Supported Browsers
•Firefox 12.0 (Windows, Mac)
•Chrome 20.0 (Windows, Mac)
•Safari 5.0 (Mac)
•Internet Explorer 9.0 (Windows)
Supported Flash Players
