The Banning of Fast Food Ads: Reducing Child Obesity, Stifling Capitalism?
Posted: Sunday, November 23, 2008
Obesity is an epidemic, and its rapid rise has closely coincided with the growth of the so-called "fast-food culture." It's been hotly debated for many years whether fast food advertisements, which are primarily aimed at children in the United States, are in large part responsible for rising obesity levels. A new study, the most comprehensive of its kind, has concluded that indeed this form of advertising plays an enormous role in obesity numbers, especially in children.

Unfortunately, past research supporting this recommendation has been relatively inconclusive, and a recent study suggests that this preventative measure is not as universally effective as generally believed, though perhaps suitable in certain groups.

Diabetes Leads to Early Death for Alzheimer's Patients
Posted: Thursday, November 06, 2008
There is significant variance in expected lifespans for individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, but two fairly clear trends have recently been found.
