只有音檔怎夠,聽不懂地方,不用怕,康康幫你準備好中英文稿了:

中英文稿:

Want to ward off memory issues and other cognitive problems as you age? Looks like low blood glucose levels are an important factor. New research finds that individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in middle age had greater cognitive impairment in the following decades than their nondiabetic counterparts.
想要避免隨著年齡增加帶來的記憶力問題和其它認知問題?貌似較低的血糖水平是一個重要因素。新的研究發現,中年被診斷為2型糖尿病的人跟那些非糖尿病患者相比,在之後的幾十年或會遭遇更大的認知障礙。

In fact, poorly managed diabetes appears to age the brain roughly five years faster than normal. That means a 55-year-old with diabetes has cognitive decline on par with a healthy 60-year-old. And the problems accumulate: over 20 years, diabetes in midlife is associated with a 19 percent decrease in mental function. Cognitive decline is considered a precursor to dementia. The findings are in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.
事實上護理不善的糖尿病人群,其大腦似乎比正常人衰老速度大致要快5年。這意味著一個55歲的糖尿病患者認知標準下降到了一個60歲健康人士的水平。而該 問題累積到超過20年後,中年糖尿病患者的心智功能就會下降19%。認知能力下降被認為是老年痴呆的前兆。該發現出自《內科醫學年鑑》。

A team from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health followed some 6,000 study subjects in Maryland, North Carolina, Minnesota and Mississippi from 1987 through 2013. The researchers used accepted tests to evaluate the participants' cognitive performance. And the people with low blood sugar levels outperformed those with midlife diabetes or pre-diabetes.
約翰霍普斯金大學公共衛生學院的一組研究人員,從1987年至2013年跟蹤研究了來自馬里蘭州、北卡萊羅納州、明尼蘇達州和密西西比州的6千名研究對 象。研究人員運用接受測試來評估研究對象的認知表現。那些血糖水平較低的人表現優於中年糖尿病患者或處於糖尿病前期的人群。

The researchers' conclusion: better weight control, exercise and a healthful diet could really help keep both body—and mind—fit over the long haul.
研究人員得出結論:長遠來看,較好的控制體重、注重運動及飲食健康真的有利於保持身心雙重健康。
