Taka Update October 05, 2015

   Taka Update October 05, 2015
Fish delivery and more
Tuna is Yellow fin. I was so disappointed with bad Big eye tuna last 2 weeks.
We have uni from USA. It is live with shell.
Live scallop is not available.  You understand when you see the weather in Boston.
Fresh Ikura is available. It has texture, you must try what is fresh.
I order Hawaiian fish today. It will come tomorrow.

Closing TAKA
Some people know this. We need to evacuate at the end of February 2016. I can say the last business day is around 20th.
And I found a good location in Sandy Springs. It is just north of Buckhead and current customers can come this location. It is about 10 minutes from current location.
I will sign the lease this week, maybe. And the opening date will be in March. I gave up to move to Hawaii and stay here for a while.

Walking an Extra Two Minutes Each Hour May Offset Hazards of Sitting Too Long
A new study suggests that engaging in low intensity activities such as standing may not be enough to offset the health hazards of sitting for long periods of time. On the bright side, adding two minutes of walking each hour to your routine just might do the trick. These findings were published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology (CJASN).

Numerous studies have shown that sitting for extended periods of time each day leads to increased risk for early death, as well as heart disease, diabetes and other health conditions. Considering that 80 percent of Americans fall short of completing the recommended amount of exercise, 2.5 hours of moderate activity each week, it seems unrealistic to expect that people will replace sitting with even more exercise.

With this in mind, scientists at the University of Utah School of Medicine investigated the health benefits of a more achievable goal, trading sitting for lighter activities for short periods of time. They used observational data from National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to examine whether longer durations of low intensity activities (e.g. standing), and light intensity activities (e.g. casual walking, light gardening, cleaning) extends the life span of people who are sedentary for more than half of their waking hours.

They found that there is no benefit to decreasing sitting by two minutes each hour, and adding a corresponding two minutes more of low intensity activities. However, a “trade-off” of sitting for light intensity activities for two minutes each hour was associated with a 33 percent lower risk of dying.

“It was fascinating to see the results because the current national focus is on moderate or vigorous activity. To see that light activity had an association with lower mortality is intriguing,” says lead author Srinivasan Beddhu,MD. professor of internal medicine.

Beddhu explains that while it’s obvious that it takes energy to exercise, strolling and other light activities use energy, too. Even short walks add up to a lot when repeated many times over the course of a week. Assuming 16 waking hours each day, two minutes of strolling each hour expends 400 kcal each week. That number approaches the 600 kcal it takes to accomplish the recommended weekly goal of moderate exercise. It is also substantially larger than the 50 kcal needed to complete low intensity activities for two minutes each  hour over the course of one week.

“Based on these results we would recommend adding two minutes of walking each hour in combination with normal activities, which should include 2.5 hours of moderate exercise each week,” says Beddhu. Moderate exercise strengthens the heart, muscles, and bones, and confers health benefits that low and light intensity activities can’t.

The study examined 3,243 NHANES participants who wore accelerometers that objectively measured the intensities of their activities. Participants were followed for three years after the data were collected; there were 137 deaths during this period.

“Exercise is great, but the reality is that the practical amount of vigorous exercise that can be achieved is limited. Our study suggests that even small changes can have a big impact,” says senior author Tom Greene, Ph.D., director of the Study Design and Biostatistics Center at the Center for Clinical and Translational Science.

Beddhu adds that large, randomized, interventional trials will be needed to definitively answer whether exchanging sitting for light activities leads to better health.

Get up for your heart health, move for your waistline
A new study found that sitting appears to be linked to increased blood sugar and cholesterol levels, which can lead to added weight, diabetes and heart ills. But standing more helps improve all these measures and can give you a trimmer waist to boot, the researchers said.
"Switching some of your sitting time to standing could have benefits for your heart and metabolism," said lead author Genevieve Healy, a senior research fellow at the University of Queensland in Herston.
"More time spent standing rather than sitting could improve your blood sugar, fats in the blood and cholesterol levels, while replacing time spent sitting with time walking could have additional benefits for your waistline and body mass index," she said.
However, the study did not prove a cause-and-effect link between standing and walking more and better health.
The report was published July 31 in the European Heart Journal.
For the study, Healy and colleagues gave activity monitors to 782 men and women, aged 36 to 80, who took part in the Australian Diabetes, Obesity and Lifestyle Study.
The monitors kept track of how long each participant spent sitting/lying down, standing, walking and running.
In addition, participants provided blood samples, measurements of their blood pressure, waist circumference, and height and weight (body mass index). The monitors were worn 24 hours a day for seven days.
The researchers found that an extra two hours per day spent standing rather than sitting was associated with approximately 2 percent lower blood sugar levels and 11 percent lower average triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood).
More standing time was also associated with an increase in HDL ("good") cholesterol and a drop in LDL ("bad") cholesterol, the investigators found.
Moreover, replacing two hours a day of sitting time with walking or running was associated with about 11 percent lower average body mass and an almost 3-inch smaller waist.
The researchers also found that average blood sugar levels dropped by about 11 percent and average triglycerides by 14 percent for every two hours spent walking rather than sitting, while HDL cholesterol levels were higher.
"Get up for your heart health and move for your waistline," Healy said.
Dr. Gregg Fonarow, a professor of cardiology at the University of California, Los Angeles, said, "Many studies have found that the amount of sedentary time is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and premature death."
People who sit for prolonged periods have a higher risk of early death, even those who regularly exercise, but the risk is most pronounced in men and women who do little or no exercise, he said.
It's clear that sitting down for too long is bad for people's health, said Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and author of an accompanying journal editorial.
"As a society, we have been focused too much on exercise and have paid less attention to the importance of just moving," he said.
Lopez-Jimenez said that even if you exercise, sitting for long periods is a marker of a sedentary lifestyle.
Society, he said, values sitting and using labor-saving devices over standing, walking and moving.
