Too Much Texting Linked to Other Problems (including eating disorders)
New York Times – 9 Nov 10 – A new study suggests that the high school students who spend the most time texting or on social network sites (or both) are at risk for a host of worrisome behaviors, including smoking, risky sex, depression, eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, and absenteeism. The study by researchers at Case Western Reserve University, presented Tuesday at a meeting of the American Public Health Association in Denver, is based on data from questions posed last year to more than 4,000 students at 20 urban high schools in Ohio.
The Twinkie Diet
Psychology Today – 10 Nov 2010 – Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, did an unusual experiment. He ate snack cakes and other sugary, processed foods for ten weeks. Delete meals, insert snacks. This included things like Doritos, chips, sugar cereals, cookies, and lots of snack cakes etc. Somewhere in the world Little Debbie is smiling.
Why try this? To prove a point. Simply reducing your calories, no matter what you eat, will make you lose weight. After 10 weeks, he lost 27lbs. His cholestrol “improved” according to the results. This is because he lost weight and his BMI, body mass index, moved from “overweight” into the “normal” range.
The point: Being mindful of how much you eat matters.
Was Henry VIII’s Wife Anorexic? Catherine of Aragon’s Secret Problem
Daily Mail UK – 9 Nov 2010
The warning signs were there. The teenage girl due to become England’s queen consort was not eating properly. Behind her back, worried letters were sent from one side of Europe to the other. In a sharp echo of the words used to describe anorexia, bulimia and today’s food-orientated illnesses, Catherine of Aragon was given to ‘disorderly eating’ – or so one close observer would go on to write in the early days of her marriage to Henry VIII.
Catherine is pictured here in 1530.
