Eat Well to Be Well: Protein’s the power in preventing sarcopenia

091714-sarcopenia-feature

Sarcopenia – a funny sounding word for a condition that over 50 percent of people age 80 and older currently have. This word was coined in 1989 by a Dr. Irwin H. Rosenberg and is defined as the involuntary, gradual loss of muscle mass and strength as we age.

All of us are at risk and the effects of sarcopenia can be devastating – increased falls and fractures, frailty, difficulty with walking, decrease in activities and a loss of physical function and independence. This progressive condition can begin as early as age 30 and can reduce muscle tissue by 3-8 percent per decade. The muscle we lose as we age is slowly being replaced with fat, even if body weight remains unchanged.

Livestock producers urged to enroll in disaster assistance program by Oct. 1

Congressional mandated payment reductions begin Oct. 1

WASHINGTON  - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is encouraging producers who have suffered eligible disaster-related losses to act to secure assistance by Sept. 30, 2014, as congressional mandated payment reductions will take place for producers who have not acted before that date. Livestock producers that have experienced grazing losses since October 2011 and may be eligible for benefits but have not yet contacted their local Farm Service Agency office should do so as soon as possible.

The Budget Control Act passed by Congress in 2011 requires USDA to implement reductions of 7.3 percent to the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP) in the new fiscal year, which begins Oct. 1, 2014. However, producers seeking LFP support who have scheduled appointments with their local FSA office before Oct. 1, even if the appointment occurs after Oct.1, will not see reductions in the amount of disaster relief they receive.
