Mayo Clinic study: High-intensity interval training can reverse aging process

A new study by the Mayo Clinic found that certain workouts can reverse the aging process.

The study found that a high-intensity interval training workout, combined with resistance training, can turn back time.

"You're essentially slowing down that aging process, (which) I think is amazing, because we didn't have those things before," said Dr. Vandana Bhide, of the Mayo Clinic.

The study was conducted by researchers in Rochester, Minnesota, and targeted two age groups -- 18 to 30-year-olds and 65 to 85-year-olds.

As we age, we lose muscle mass. Researchers found that a combined workout increases muscle mass, and on the cellular level, reverses some of the adverse effects of aging.

"For older people, it allows them to be more functional, to be able to do as much as they can at whatever age,” Bhide said.

Researchers tracked data over 12 weeks.

"It's not overnight, but we think of it taking years," Bhide said.

Florida-based fitness franchise Orange Theory Fitness focuses on these types of workouts.

"It kind of just reaffirms what we already believe here," head coach Justin Hoffman said. "We've seen tremendous strength gain, even (at) 70 years plus, with just 3 to 4 days of interval training.”

Bhide said older people who are interested in these workouts should check with their doctor before starting. And as with any exercise program, everybody is different and may not get the same results.

John David Cain, 26, and Deanna Lynn Greer, 37, placed an ad on Craigslist, where they listed their infant for sale for $3,000, WATE reported on Saturday, citing the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.

The couple was detained by state agents during a sting operation that ended Friday when Cain and Greer attempted to exchange the baby for cash with state agents.

Cain and Greer were arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment.

They are both being held on a $150,000 bond.

The baby is currently in state custody, according to WATE.

Children at overdose scenes make it tough for first responders

Dayton, Ohio, firefighter/paramedics say they responded to 32 overdoses from Saturday to Sunday -- three times as many ODs this past weekend as the same weekend period a year ago.

And they say their task is made more complicated when children are witnesses to the aftermath of overdoses.

"I think it's starting to get worse, honestly," Dayton resident Aaron Gibbons told News Center 7's Kate Bartley on Monday. 

Bryan Adams, Dayton Fire Department public information officer, said, "obviously it takes an emotional toll any time you deal with families. I think it becomes even more complicated when you're trying to explain a situation or deal with children who don't understand the cause." 

 Incidents where there are two or more overdose victims are becoming more commonplace, he said. 

Adams said the situation becomes troublesome when it's over and over and over. 

"So when you think of the 32 we've had over a two-day period this past weekend, that takes a toll on the first responders who are going out to these calls as well," Adams said.

Kids 5 and younger not allowed to dine at N.C. restaurant

At Caruso's in Mooresville, North Carolina, the rules have changed.

Children 5 and younger are not allowed to dine there.

“Sometimes the children become rowdy, and some of our other guests, it has made them upset because the parents don't do the right thing of taking the child out,” said manager Michael Mills

With its chandeliers, piano music and candlelight, Mills said the restaurant is trying to offer a fine dining experience.

Customer reactions started getting posted immediately on its Facebook page.

WSOCTV.com caught up with diners outside the restaurant. Whitney Labozzetta, a mom of six, doesn’t think it is right.

“We actually got up and left because the waitresses were very rude,” she said. “When my daughter, who is one, cried, they gave us the nasty look.”

Others accepted the policy.

“I agree with them. Kids are supposed to be quiet, not heard, leave them home,” George Rondinelli said.

“You have a choice. If that's what they say, it's their place, it's their rules,” Melissa Jones said.

Mills said the feedback has been mostly positive.

“We're just trying to create a dining experience that everyone can enjoy,” Mills said. “We're very kid-friendly here. We just put in an age limit on infants up until five.”

Surfer bitten by shark at Florida beach

A shark bit a 58-year-old surfer Monday at Florida’s New Smyrna Beach.

The Stuart man was surfing about 30 to 40 yards from the shoreline when he was bitten on the foot, Volusia County Beach Safety Ocean Rescue spokesperson Tamra Marris said.

The injury was minor and the surfer was able to get out of the water on his own. He was not taken to the hospital, Marris said.

Marris called it "a typical case of mistaken identity" and said that the surfer did not see the shark.

This is the first shark bite in Volusia County this year.
