Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Active Aging Week

    The International Council on Active Aging and AARP will sponsor Active Aging Week, September 25th to October 1st.

    I mention it because one of the sponsors offers a locator for “age-friendly” fitness centers. It’s designed to help people over 50 find a gym or a health club. It’s unclear what they do to make themselves “age-friendly,” however.

    I’ve posted before about physical activity and longevity. And the CDC has a comprehensive report on the topic. The locator might be a good way to encourage older friends and family members to get serious about exercise.
