4 Your Health: Eating away knee pain and mandatory bedtimes for kids

Posted: Updated:

Tucson- A high fiber diet may lower the risk of arthritis related knee pain.

Research from two long term studies show adults who ate the most dietary fiber were 30 to 60 percent less likely to develop knee osteoarthritis than those who ate the least.

Fiber, especially cereal fiber, was also associated with a lower risk of worsening pain in patients who already had the condition. Researchers are not sure why fiber may protect against knee osteoarthritis.

Enforcing bedtimes

Establishing a firm bedtime can help your child get enough sleep during the week.

Canadian researchers found when parents enforced, rather than encouraged, weekday bedtimes children were more likely to meet recommended sleep guidelines. However, neither encouraging or enforcing a bedtime had an effect on weekend sleep.

The study also revealed, children over the age of 10 are the least likely to get enough sleep.
