Health Alert: Deadly Falls on the Rise Among Seniors. 
According to health officials, the number of seniors dying from falls increased 31% (about 18,000 to 30,000 deaths) between 2007 and 2016. Lead researcher Dr. Elizabeth Burns warns, “If deaths from falls continue to increase at the same rate, the [United States] can expect 59,000 older adults will die because of a fall in 2030.” The findings reveal the need for older adults to take steps to prevent falls, including talking to their doctor and staying active.

Diet: Can a Low Energy Diet Make People Feel Full? 
Individuals who follow a low energy diet that includes foods such as vegetables, lean meats, and rice are more likely to feel full than those who try a restricted calorie diet. At the end of a 14-week study, women on either diet lost weight but those on the lower energy diet were more likely to lose clinically significant amounts of weight. The researchers also found that those who ate low energy density meals consumed about 1,000 fewer calories per day. Because such foods contain more water, protein, and fiber and result in bigger portion sizes, they more effectively reduce hunger pangs. Lead author Dr. Nicola Buckland writes, “A lot of people give up on diets because they feel hungry between meals. Our research shows that eating low energy density foods can help overcome that problem.”
