2 Billion People are Overweight, USA is on top




fat people, fat, obese, obesity


- 2.2 billion people in the world are overweight or obese.
- Egypt is on the top country with the highest percentage of obese adults while U.S. has the highest percentage of children.
- A rising number of deaths is resulting from diseases attributable to obesity.

According to a new study published Monday in the New England Journal of Medicine, about 30% (2.2 billion people) of the world's population is affected by weight problems, with 10% listed as obese. People were classified as overweight if their body mass index was in the 25 to 29 range, while obesity is defined as anyone with a BMI of 30 or more. 600 million adults and 150 million children have body mass index numbers above 30, which is a metric used to determine obesity.

The results show "a growing and disturbing global public health crisis," according to the study.

The United States had the highest percentage of obese children and young adults at nearly 13%, while Egypt had the highest number of adults at 35%. Bangladesh had the lowest rates of obese children, and Vietnam the lowest number in adults which are about 1% in both country.

The U.S., with 79.4 million, had the most obese adults, followed by China. The research found obesity has tripled in youth and young adults in countries such as China, Brazil and Indonesia.

Single Mosquito Bite Is Enough To Transmit Multiple Viruses - Study





Mosquito, Mosquito disease, chikungunya, dengue, Zika virus, DEET


Mosquitoes are annoying and their bite will give you an itchy pink or reddish skin bumps. They can also cause serious public health issue like the mosquito-borne Zika outbreak that spread all over the world last year. Not only that according to a recent study published in the Nature Communications journal reports that mosquitoes might be even more adept at spreading disease than previously thought. The research was aiming to find out if the infamous Aedes aegypti mosquito may be able to spread multiple diseases at once. Aedes aegypti mosquito, also called the cockroach of mosquitoes, is known to be among the primary way diseases like chikungunya, dengue and Zika virus spread.

Researchers from Colorado State University exposed hundreds of mosquitoes to either chikungunya, Zika or dengue and different combinations of the three. They also exposed 48 mosquitoes to the three viruses namely chikungunya, Zika and dengue so that they can analyze if one or all three of the diseases could appear in the saliva, which could then potentially infect a person.

The researchers examined the saliva, gut and legs of the insects for signs of viral infection. They found that 92% of the mosquitoes tested positive for all three viruses. Of the 48 just one remained uninfected.  

They found that 6 saliva samples from the mosquito tested positive for all three viruses 14 days after the insects were exposed. Another two saliva samples tested positive 21 days after exposure.

Even if not all the insects had the virus in the saliva, the researchers said that the virus' presence in the saliva happens only after the infection has traveled through the body. As a result, the other mosquitoes that tested positive may still have been able to transmit the disease in the future even if the virus was not found in the saliva.

 "Based on what I know as a virologist, epidemiologist and entomologist, I thought that the viruses would either compete or enhance each other in some way," Greg Ebel, director of the Arthropod-borne and Infectious Diseases Laboratory and co-author of the study, said in a statement today. "On the one hand, all of these viruses have mechanisms to suppress mosquito immunity, which could lead to synergy. On the other hand, they all likely require similar resources within infected cells, which could lead to competition."

But Ebel said, "we didn't see much evidence of either one of these things in mosquitoes that were infected in the lab by multiple viruses."

According to CDC the only way to protect yourself and your children from mosquito-born illness is to prevent the bite by using insect repellent. The CDC recommends using EPA-registered insect repellents that include at least 20% DEET. Though products with higher DEET concentration does provide longer protection, this peaks around 50% DEET.

Common Painkillers May Cause "Heart attack risk"

http://amzn.to/2pyi6df


According to the new study, there may be a link between taking high doses of common anti-inflammatory painkillers like ibuprofen and heart attacks. Over-the-counter common painkillers known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like ibuprofen are sold under brand names that includes Motrin or Advil, these are used to treat minor pains and aches, it also reduce fever.

People who take these medicine have a higher risk of heart attack or stroke, according to National Institutes of Health. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682159.html
The likelihood of experiencing a heart attack was calculated to increase by an average of 20% to 50%, compared with someone not taking the drugs, regardless of the dosage and amount of time  they are taken.

The findings are observational and based on an association, however, with the drugs not proved to be a a direct cause of heart attack.

This group of drugs includes ibuprofen, diclofenac, celecoxib and naproxen, which are available over the counter or by prescription for higher doses, to relieve pain or fever resulting from a range of causes that may include flu, headaches, back pain and menstrual cramps. Their range of uses also means they are often taken as needed, for short periods of time.

The level of risk increased as early as one week into the use of any drug in this category and at any dose, and the risk associated with taking higher doses was greatest within the first month. The overall findings suggest that people who take any dosage of these drugs for one week, one month or longer was linked to an increased risk of a heart attack. The risk appeared to decline when these painkillers were no longer taken, with a slight decline one to 30 days after use and a greater decline, falling below 11%, between 30 days and one year after use.

"We found that all common NSAIDs shared a heightened risk of heart attack," said Dr. Michèle Bally, an epidemiologist at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Center, who led the research. "There is a perception that naproxen has the lowest cardiovascular risk (among the NSAIDs), but that's not true."

Cardiovascular diseases are the No. 1 cause of death globally, according to the World Health Organization, with 80% of all deaths in this category due to heart attacks and strokes. Each year, it's estimated that 735,000 people in the United States have a heart attack. In the United Kingdom, more than 200,000 hospital visits each year are due to a heart attack.

Diet Soday May Cause Stroke and Dementia

Diet soda, diet coke, diet pepsi


According to a new study consuming diet sodas may result to higher risk of stroke and dementia. Drinks with artificial sweeteners like diet sodas are linked to higher risk of stroke and dementia according to the study, which published in the American Heart Association's journal Stroke on Thursday.

However, the researchers failed to determine an actual cause-and-effect relationship between consuming artificially sweetened drinks and an increased risk for stroke and dementia. Therefore, some experts caution that the findings should be interpreted carefully.

No connection was found between those health risks and other sugary beverages, such as sugar-sweetened sodas, fruit juice and fruit drinks.

"We have little data on the health effects of diet drinks and this is problematic because diet drinks are popular amongst the general population," said Matthew Pase, a senior research fellow in the department of neurology at Boston University School of Medicine and lead author of the new study.
"More research is needed to study the health effects of diet drinks so that consumers can make informed choices concerning their health," he said.

The new study involved data on 2,888 adults older than 45 and 1,484 adults older than 60 from the town of Framingham, Massachusetts. The data came from the Framingham Heart Study, a project of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and Boston University.

The American Beverage Association was quick to defend diet drinks.

“Low-calorie sweeteners have been proven safe by worldwide government safety authorities as well as hundreds of scientific studies and there is nothing in this research that counters this well-established fact,” it said in a statement. It added:

    While we respect the mission of these organizations to help prevent conditions like stroke and dementia, the authors of this study acknowledge that their conclusions do not — and cannot — prove cause and effect.

healthy eating, food, healthy food, healthy diet


According to a recent study, people are consuming more bacon and soda and less nuts that leads to deaths from heart disease, strokes and diabetes. Overeating bad food and not eating enough healthy food contributes to nearly half of U.S. deaths from these causes, the study suggests.

The healthy food that are not being eaten are nuts and seeds, seafood rich in omega-3 fats including salmon and sardines; fruits and vegetables; and whole grains. While un-healthy food that are being over-eaten are salty foods; processed meats including bacon, bologna and hot dogs; red meat including steaks and hamburgers; sodas and other drinks with lots of sugar.

The study is based on  U.S. government data that shows about 700,000 deaths in 2012 from heart disease, strokes and diabetes and on an analysis of national health surveys that asked participants about their eating habits. Most didn't eat the recommended amounts of the foods studied.

Here's a guidelines for a healthy diet:

Healthy ingredients

—Fruits: 3 average-sized fruits daily
—Vegetables: 2 cups cooked or 4 cups raw vegetables daily
—Nuts/seeds: 5 1-ounce servings per week — about 20 nuts per serving

EU Reports "Alarming" Rate of Deaths Caused by Superbugs

  antibiotics antimicrobials superbugs antibiotic overuse antibiotic resistance

According to a report from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) there are over 25,000 death in the EU annually that is caused by superbugs. Superbugs is caused by  by the misuse and overuse of antibiotics.

There are high levels of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria from humans, animals, and food across Europe, highlighted by "extremely high" multidrug resistance in a type of Salmonella that causes illness in humans.

The summary report is based on data on antimicrobial resistance in zoonotic and indicator bacteria submitted by 28 European Union (EU) member states in 2015 and jointly analyzed by scientists from the ECDC and the EFSA. It provides an overview of resistance in Salmonella isolates from humans, food-producing animals (pigs and calves), and their meat; Campylobacter isolates from humans and pigs; and Escherichia coli isolates from pigs, calves, and their meat. Data on the incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in pigs, calves, and their meat are also included.

The report shows that there were high levels of drug resistance in bacteria like salmonella and E. coli, and that some bacteria have begun to show resistance a type of antibiotics that are often the last treatment option for patients that are infected with superbugs.

The EFSA recommends three key ways to stop the spread of superbugs:
  1.     reducing the use of antimicrobials,
  2.     finding ways to replace the drugs with alternative treatments,
  3.     and rethinking the livestock production system.

Mother Furious when a Daycare Worker Breastfed Her Son, Seen on CCTV footage

A Security camera caught a daycare worker breastfeeding someone else's son. It took place at Carrboro Early School day care center in Carrboro, North Carolina on Friday February 3. The video shows a woman adjusting her top and bringing Oxendine's 3-month-old son to her chest to breastfeed him. The mother Kaycee Oxendine said she didn't give her permission.    

Ms Oxendine also works as a pre-kindergarten teacher in North Carolina.

Oxendine in an interview said that her son’s teacher told her the young boy was constipated and offered to breastfeed the boy to see if it would help. Oxendine clearly told the worker no, twice. “She said that she had a son and did I want her to put my child to her breast and breastfeed?” Oxendine says. “And I said no, that’s nasty. We don’t do things like that.”

But Ms Oxendine says the worker ignored her refusal and breastfed the baby as soon as she left the room.

She says a video shows the worker picking up her baby and breastfeeding him for several seconds. The woman stopped when another worker who was in the room at the time, left.

“As a mum, you’ve taken something from me, because I wasn’t able to defend my child,” Oxendine says.

The said the boy also got sick after drinking the breast milk later that night. The boy was taken to a hospital because he was throwing up. She says her son, who was born prematurely, is lactose intolerant.

“To me, a criminal act was committed against him,” she said. “Not only did you put your breast to my son, you also made my son sick because he’s lactose. So you’ve put something in his body that his body can’t digest.”

The daycare director, Daron Council, told sister station ABC11 that an employee reported what happened and that the worker who did the breastfeeding is no longer there.

Kaycee wants her to face criminal charges.

http://amzn.to/2iCjiMl



Everyone knows that soft-drinks are bad for your health even if its Diet Coke or sugar-free. However, the video above shows an experiment that determines how much sugar in Coke Regular and Coke Zero. Both drinks are first tested in high heat using a nonstick pan. Boiling the soft-drinks will remove the water and the product will caramelize leaving the sugar.

The purpose of the video is to show how much sugar you are consuming when you drink regular soft-drinks. It hopes to lessen your soft-drinks intake and instead drink water or if you really can't avoid it choose diet soft-drinks instead. Type 2 diabetes is no joke, it's expensive and it's a nasty disorder that can lead to deadly complications.
