    2017 Wellness Reports: Women's Health

    Introducing a new authoritative report from the editors of the University of California, Berkeley Wellness Letter

    To your grandmother -- and others of her generation -- getting older was a thing to fear.

    They risked broken bones any time they fell ... their skin became wrinkled and covered with "liver spots" ... their eyesight dimmed ... hearing diminished ... and many lost their lives to lung cancer, breast cancer, diabetes, or other serious illnesses.

    But thanks to incredible breakthroughs in medical treatments, pharmaceuticals, early detection diagnostic tests, and nutrition, the outlook is considerably rosier for women today:

    Although heart disease remains the number one killer of both men and women in the United States, there are now simple things you can do at home to lower your risk of cardiovascular illness by as much as 50%.

    A simple vaccine is now available that prevents young women from becoming infected with the human papilloma virus (HPV). And clinical trials have proven that the vaccine does in fact protect most women from cervical cancer, which is caused by HPV.

    Although breast cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer death in women, the mortality rates from breast cancer have declined steadily for more than two decades, most notably among women under age 50. Among the factors credited for this drop: improved methods of treatment as well as earlier detection through screening.

    As a result, women are living longer ... staying healthier ... and enjoying more productive lives than ever before.

    For instance, the average woman in the U.S. today has a lifespan of 81 years. By comparison, a woman born in the early 1900s had an average lifespan of only 47 years -- likely dying before her fiftieth birthday.

    And there's more good news almost every month -- from innovative ways to maintain bone density in your senior years to reviving lost sex drive in menopausal women. In fact, there are so many more health options for women today than when your grandma was a girl, the choices are almost bewildering.

    From talk shows to women's magazines, to the Internet and the bookstore, there's no shortage of news and information on women's health. But how do you sort through it, so you can make more informed decisions about your own diet, exercise, treatment, and medications?

    Fortunately, there's an authoritative resource -- from one of the world's most respected public health institutions -- that you can turn to for evidence-based guidance on how women can live longer, more active, and healthier lives. And you may preview it in the privacy of your home.

    The UC Berkeley Wellness Report: Women's Health

    With thousands of books ... articles ... websites ... magazines ... and clinical studies published every day, no single person can keep up with all of the new developments in women's health. It would be a full-time job -- and I'm guessing you already have too much to do.

    Also, unless you're an M.D. yourself, do you really have the background to separate the good science from the hype in modern medicine today?

    That's where the Wellness Report series from one of the most respected health institutions in the world, the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley can help save you time and money while living longer with optimal health and wellness.

    Our editorial advisors, all M.D.s or Ph.D.s or both, with impressive credentials in their specialties, conduct exhaustive searches of the medical literature on a particular topic -- in this case, breakthroughs in women's health.

    They then review the research to ensure that it's based on scientifically sound methods ... and to confirm the accuracy and reliability of the findings.

    Next, our editors painstakingly convert medical jargon, formulas, and statistics into clear, plain English. I know you'll find it fascinating reading -- and useful.

    Here's a sampling of what you'll discover in our UC Berkeley Wellness Report: Women's Health.

    • The keys to a truly healthy diet (they’re simpler than you may think).

    A Wellness Guide to Weight Control
    Tried and True Strategies Based on the Latest Research

    Even a Little Means a Lot. Dropping just a little weight can pay amazing health dividends -- improving cholesterol numbers, lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, and reducing the pain of arthritis.

    The Fullness Factor. Here are ways to promote satiety, the feeling of fullness. If you feel full longer, you are less likely to overeat later, yet not feel deprived.

    Mindful Eating. In this nondieting approach to weight loss, you do not count calories, measure food, or even restrict foods, but use internal cues to guide you about when and how much to eat.

    Energy Density: Eating More To Lose More. People tend to eat roughly the same amount of food a day, regardless of calories, so eating low-energy-dense foods allows you to fill up on fewer calories.

    5 Things Successful Dieters Do. How come some people successfully lose weight and keep it off, while so many others fail? Here's what the National Weight Control Registry has found out.

    16 More Strategies and Tips. From alcohol and high-fructose corn syrup to food scales and the DASH diet.

    8 Exercise Tips for Weight Control. The best advice for boosting the other side of the energy equation.

    The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services reports that the average annual expenditure for healthcare for American women ages 19 to 64 is $6,892 per person; for those 65 and older, it jumps to $19,110. Even a routine consultation at your doctor's office could easily cost $50 or more for a 10-minute visit.

    But now, benefitting from today's latest research breakthroughs in women's healthcare won't cost you $3,200 ... or $300 ... or even $50.

    Keeps you on the leading edge of women's health

    Great strides are being made all the time in women's health.

    Yet obstacles to living a full, healthy, and energetic life still remain:

    Cardiovascular disease remains the #1 killer of women in America, with 400,000 killed each year.

    More than 246,000 new cases of breast cancer were diagnosed last year.

    About 22,000 American women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year.

    8 million American women suffer from osteoporosis.

    Close to one-third of American women have high blood pressure, a leading risk factor for stroke.

    New vaccines ... prescription drugs ... dietary supplements ... hormone treatments ... medical procedures ... medical tests ... and lifestyle changes are being found effective for early detection and treatment of everything from Alzheimer's disease to psoriasis.

    But as a woman, you can't wait around for your doctors -- even your gynecologist -- to ferret it out for you. There's just too much medical information being created for even the best healthcare practitioner to keep up with all of it.

    But at the University of California, Berkeley, we have a staff of dedicated physicians and medical editors whose job is to keep abreast of the important developments in women's healthcare ... and alert you, in our annual Wellness Reports, to the ones that can really make a difference in your life.
