Fuel Up to Play 60 summit promotes dairy, healthy living

The 2018 Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Summit was held in Atlanta, Ga., this week to help encourage youth to lead healthier lives and to promote agriculture’s role in society. Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by the National Dairy Council and National Football League (NFL), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

This year’s summit brought together approximately 215 students and 92 educators from 46 states to exchange ideas and participate in workshops and activities. The event provided students and educators with leadership and communications training opportunities to enhance their program engagement in the upcoming school year. Additionally, customized activities deepened participants’ knowledge of agriculture, specifically dairy farming and where their food comes from.

Dairy farmers Marilyn Hershey from Pennsylvania, Michelle Schilter from Washington, Brad Scott from California and Jason Brown, also a former NFL player, participated in a panel discussion moderated by Fuel Up to Play 60 students on the topic of “Nourishing Communities: The Role of Farmers in Feeding The World.”

All of them touched on the current disconnect between the agriculture industry and consumers and emphasized how important agriculture is to feeding the world.

Brown noted that a huge proportion of the population is very disconnected from farms and lacks knowledge of where food comes from.

“If we’re going to correct the situation of hunger and making sure that no child is food insecure, we have to place an importance on our local farmers,” he said.

The speakers provided their perspectives and insights on the important role farmers play in communities and in feeding the planet. Hershey, Schilter, Scott and Brown described their farms, their motivations and misperceptions about farmers and farming. Additionally, they emphasized the need for attendees to help advocate for agriculture.

“We’re calling on every single one of you to help us make a difference, because we’re truly going to need it in the coming years to feed a growing America,” Brown said.

Healthy Living: Bill Gates says we need a “reliable, affordable, and accessible” test for Alzheimer’s

SEATTLE — Besides a cure, what do those afraid of Alzheimer’s disease need most? According to entrepreneur and philanthropist Bill Gates, a key need is a “reliable, affordable, and accessible” diagnostic test.

To jump-start that research, Gates announced Tuesday that he has joined a coalition of philanthropists who are investing $30 million to create a venture fund called Diagnostics Accelerator.

“We need a better way of diagnosing Alzheimer’s — like a simple blood test or eye exam — before we’re able to slow the progression of the disease,” Gates wrote in a statement announcing the investment. “Imagine a world where diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease is as simple as getting your blood tested during your annual physical.”

An accurate test is critical, Gates says, because science shows that Alzheimer’s can begin more than a decade before the first outward signs of decline. Yet people today are cognitively tested only when symptoms have progressed to the point at which the disease is affecting daily life. By then, much of the damage is done.

The next steps are spinal taps or imaging tests such as PET scans to identify markers for changes in the brain. Both are extremely expensive, and most insurance plans in the U.S. will not reimburse patients, Gates said.

“Spinal taps can be scary and uncomfortable, and PET scans require the patient to stay perfectly still for up to 40 minutes,” Gates said. “That’s difficult for anyone to do — but especially someone with Alzheimer’s.”

Alzheimer’s is a progressive mental deterioration of the brain that destroys memory and thinking skills until the person is unable to do even the simplest of tasks. Irreversible after it begins, it’s thought to be caused by a buildup in the brain of beta amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles called tau.

The Alzheimer’s Association says the disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., killing more than breast and prostate cancer combined. Estimates show nearly 6 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s; that number is projected to rise to nearly 14 million by the year 2050.

Identifying those with Alzheimer’s is also critical to the success of clinical trials on potential medications or treatments. According to Gates, scientists are stymied in moving forward with research because “it’s currently so difficult to find enough eligible patients for a clinical trial that it can take longer to enroll participants than to conduct the study.”

Studies have shown one of the reasons for that shortage is the inability of primary care physicians to identify the signs of Alzheimer’s in their elderly patients in the short time allocated to patient visits. Compounding that problem is the likelihood an elderly patient might already have diabetes, heart disease or other chronic illnesses that can mimic or cause those symptoms.

Gates hopes to solve those problems using a venture philanthropy fund to marry the best of cutting-edge research with the incentive of a money-making product for “real patients.” If any of the ideas succeed, said Gates, “our share of the financial windfall goes right back into the fund.”

In addition to Gates, the fund is supported by the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation, created by Estée Lauder billionaires Leonard and Ronald Lauder; the Charles and Helen Schwab Foundation; and the Dolby Family, among others.

Gates began another fund dedicated to Alzheimer’s research, the Dementia Discovery Fund, in November. In an exclusive interview with CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Gates said he was investing $50 million of his own money partly because of his personal experience with Alzheimer’s.

“Several of the men in my family have this disease,” he told Gupta. “And so, you know, I’ve seen how tough it is. That’s not my sole motivation, but it certainly drew me in.

“Anything where my mind would deteriorate” is, he said, one of his greatest fears. He’s seen the hardship it has caused in his own family. “I hope I can live a long time without those limitations,” he told Gupta.

The Dementia Discovery Fund is a private-public research partnership focused on some of the more novel ideas about what drives the brain disease, such as looking at a brain cell’s immune system. It was the first time Gates made a commitment to a noncommunicable disease; prior work done through his foundation had mostly focused on infectious diseases such as HIV, malaria and polio.

Healthy living part of Dubai curriculum

Dubai students would be guided towards a healthier lifestyle that includes 30-minute physical activities per day and increased intake of fruits and vegetables as part of a comprehensive school health policy.

By the beginning of the next academic year, pupils would be encouraged to follow 12 steps as part of the policy that is being jointly implemented by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA).

The five-year policy aims to encourage healthier food consumption and decrease obesity rates among students aged between seven and 15 years.

The 12 steps include encouraging students to eat five portions of vegetables and fruits per day and 150 minutes of physical activity per week.

Humaid Al Qattami, director-general of the DHA, said: “The school health policy will lay the foundation for schools to adhere to certain standards to ensure physical, emotional, social and psychological well-being of students.”

Healthy Living: Hummus for dessert


CHAMPAIGN–

Leia Flure, Registered Dietitian joins us in healthy living. 

Hummus… for dessert?! Don’t knock it til you try it!

One of the base ingredients of hummus is chickpeas/garbanzo beans, which have a very mild flavor and can be “hidden” easily with the help of some chocolate and peanut butter.

Dessert hummus is easy and quick to make, and the beans add extra protein and fiber for a healthy snack or light dessert after a meal.

 

Blend in a food processor until smooth:

-15 ounce can of chickpeas/garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

-1/3 cup honey

-1/4 cup peanut butter

-1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

-1 teaspoon vanilla extract

-Pinch of salt

 

Transfer mixture to a serving bowl and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of melted peanut butter. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and serve! Goes great with fresh fruit, pretzels, and crackers.
