9 Myths About Weight Loss
Losing weight is no easy task, and myths persist about how to do it—which end up making it even harder. To cut through the confusion, here are nine common misconceptions about weight loss and dieting, and what the science actually says. Myth #1: It’s impossible to lose weight It’s tough—just ask anyone who’s tried. But it’s not impossible. The National Weight Control Registry began keeping track in 1994 of people who lost at least 30 pounds and kept it off for a year or longer. Today, more than 10,000 Americans are part of the registry—with an average weight loss of 66 pounds, kept off for more than five years. Researchers are studying how these Americans were successful in order to provide advice to others. So far, they’ve found that the vast majority of people in the study say they changed their diet and started exercising more. Other commonalities include eating breakfast every day, weighing themselves at least once a week and watching fewer than 10 hours of TV a week. Myth #2: To lose weight you only need to eat less and exercise more While studies like the National Weight Control Registry show that people who lose weight successfully tend to change their eating habits and increase their exercise, that’s not the whole story. Other factors, like genetics, environment, emotional state and what types of food a person eats can also contribute. Some researchers argue that the common advice to just “count calories&rdq...
Americans spend an average of five hours a day on our smartphones, making them some of our most commonly-used electronic devices. But it’s exactly that popularity that makes them a favored target of hackers, too — they want to get at all the personal information we keep in our smartphones, like credit card numbers, passwords and so on. Because our smartphones contain so much of our most vital data, it’s that much worse when they get hacked. So which phone is most secure against malicious hackers? The simple answer is Apple’s iPhone, says Dan Kaminsky, chief scientist and founder of cybersecurity fir...

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a global public health epidemic that initiates/exacerbates negative health consequences over a victim ’s lifespan.1 The identification of IPV is often associated, with injuries to the head, neck, and face (HNF).2 Present/past exposure of IPV is shown to have a strong association with stress related health disparities. Little is known of the mechanisms that precipitate this phenomenon. Cardiovascul ar Disease (CVD), as a stress-induced health consequence, is the number one silent killer in the United States where only 13% perceive it as a health threat.
Orthognathic surgery is routinely performed to correct dento-facial deformities and to improve the function and aesthetics of patients. Maxillo-mandibular advancement is also being used to treat patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. The long-term success of these treatments depends on the skeletal stability, which remains a huge challenge despite the best surgical effort and advances in rigid internal fixation. Such challenge is greater in large mandibular advancements.
