Sugar industry withheld research effects of sucrose 50 years ago, study claims
Researchers say negative health impacts of sucrose could have been combated sooner had research been released – but industry bodies dispute the findingsSugar ’s demise from childhood staple to public enemy can be seen everywhere. Chocolate bars are shrinking,sugary drinks are set to be taxed and our recommended daily sugar intake hasbeen slashed in half. But the battle against sugar might have begun sooner if the industry hadn ’t kept secrets to protect its commercial interests, according to new findings.

Growing Up with a Psychotic Mother
I was ten when my mother had her first psychotic break. It was May. I was looking forward to lazy summer days at the pool, an art camp, a stack of Babysitters Club books, and daydreaming about my first crush, a boy with a splay of freckles and a mop of dark hair. Instead, I was forced to grow up too soon. This meant wearing deodorant and shaving my arm pits. It also meant seeing my mother in a state of complete psychosis, one in which she thought maybe she had killed the postman or the neighbor girl. “I didn’t. Mean. Tokillthepostman.” Her words were all wrong, strung together in a series of hiccups a...

The distal matrix forms the lower 2/3s of the nail plate and the proximal matrix forms the upper 1/3 of the nail plate. the thickness of the nail plate is proportion to the matrix’s thickness. The nail plate’s free edge contour follows the shape of the nail’s lunula. Melanocytes occ...

Childhood obesity soars worldwide
Conclusion This is a huge report with data from around the world. It found that, while obesity among children has clearly increased globally, the picture is variable from one country or region to another. It's encouraging that the report found obesity levels among countries such as the UK are levelling off. However, that still leaves millions of children obese or overweight, which could put their health at risk in years to come. More needs to be done to reduce those numbers. More urgent is the situation in countries that have seen a rapid rise in childhood obesity that shows no sign of slowing. It is also important not to ...

Poor food choice and lack of exercise are largely to blame but overweight kids don’t just have physical challenges. Children face psychological challenges as well. Obese children are more likely to feel stigmatized, are often bullied and may not do as well in school. Overweight children tend to become overweight adults, putting them at risk for heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other health effects.

Conclusion Injection of a microstructure device that can give time-delayed release of a vaccine or drug could have great potential in medicine.

But they also mentioned the size – the lightweight device could only hold a small amount of solution. However, the researchers suggested that varying the wall thickness to create larger cores could greatly increase the device's capacity. At this stage, the device has only been tested in a single experiment in mice. Further research in mice would be nee...
