According to a new study, you don't need to go to college to gain what is often called the "freshman 15".

Instead, researchers at Ohio State University’s Center for Human Resource Research believe this weight gain is typical of ALL young adults, regardless of whether they are amassing student loan debt.

The study has also found that weight gain during the 13th grade is usually only between 2.5 and 3.5 pounds.

After analyzing data from over 7,000 students surveyed in 1997 before college, then again a year later, it was determined women gained an average of 2.4 pounds freshman year, while men gained 3.4. No more than 10% of college freshman gained the mythological 15 pounds

The paper's co-author, Jay Zagorsky, explained:

Daily Moderate Alcohol Consumption May Help Women Age Better

Filed under: HealthAgingAlcohol

glass of wine

A new study on alcohol consumption and aging suggest a new mantra: A glass of wine a day keeps dementia away!

After analyzing nearly 14,000 responses to the Nurses’ Health Study — one of the largest ongoing women’s health studies in the U.S. — Harvard researchers found 58-year-old women who drink 1 alcoholic beverage a day had a 20% better chance of “successful aging” compared to those who didn't.

"Successful aging” was defined as making it to the age of 70 with good cognitive function, no major chronic diseases, no physical limitations and good overall mental health.

Lead study author Dr. Qi Sun and researcher at the Harvard School of Public Health, said:

“If you just focus on one aspect of health, that’s very misleading. What we are looking at is very comprehensive. For women who have one drink per day — equivalent to one can of beer, one shot of liquor or one glass of wine — that is associated with an increased chance of achieving successful aging, which means multiple aspects of health.”

Researchers found that the results were even more positive when women spread the amount of alcohol ingested throughout the week (one glass a day for 5 days), so don't use this as an excuse for binge drinking yourself silly, ladies!
