Does Being Overweight Damage Your Brain?

Sorry for the over the top headline, but the answer to the question appears to be yes…and please read this whole post, there is something really good at the end.

How Being Overweight Affects The Brain

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh scanned the brains of 94 people over the age of 70. They were looking to see the differences in the brains of people who were of normal weight (BMI under 25), overweight (BMI 25-30), and obese (BMI over 30).

If you are 5 foot 10 and you weigh 220, you have a BMI of 31.6 and would be considered obese. If you are 5 foot 10 and weigh 180, your BMI is 25.8 and you would be considered overweight for purposes of the study. There are certain athletes with lot of muscle mass that make the BMI inaccurate, but for the rest of us it is a valid measurement.

The Scary Results

It turns out that Obese people have 8% less brain tissue than people of normal...continue reading »

Acai Berry: The 100 Million Dollar Weight Loss Scam

Some interesting news came out last night. The attorney general of Connecticut, Richard Blumethal, announced an investigation into the business practices and questionable science associated with Acai berry products — primarily pitched by Internet-based companies as a wonder treatment for weight-loss.

Personally, I think this is great news...continue reading »

New Research on the Placebo Effect

You have probably heard about the Placebo effect. We know new drugs are measured against the placebo effect because a good percentage of people get better just by taking sugar pills.

I think a lot of us don't take the time to consider how crazy this is. Some pretty major health conditions are "cured" by basically the belief that the pill or injection will work.

This is obviously power of the mind stuff, but until recently scientists had never been able to actually "see" the placebo effect actually working in the brain.

Thanks to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (f MRI) and PET scans...continue reading »

You Will Never Look at Pain the Same Way Again

A new study, published in the November 2008 issue of the journal Current Biology* just blew my mind.

Researchers found that just by changing the way subjects looked at an achy limb, they could affect the degree of pain experienced AND the swelling of the limb.

This is pretty crazy stuff, but is just more evidence of the mind/body...continue reading »

New Research on Anxiety. Is it Always Such a Bad Thing?

The Stock Market, the "Bail Out", and the crazy political situation might be causing you some stress.

I know I am a little stressed about the economy right now. Is this tinge of stress and anxiety I am feeling a bad thing?

New Anxiety Study

According to a 2008 study, published in the journal Psychological Science*...continue reading »

New Research on Splenda -- Scary Stuff


A new study done at Duke University and published this past week in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part Ahas some frightening news about Splenda (sucralose).

According to the study, the use of Splenda:

  • Reduces the amount of good bacteria in the intestines by 50%.
  • Increases the pH level in the intestines.
  • Contributes to increases in body weight.
  • And affects the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) in the body in such a way that crucial health-related drugs could be rejected.

The study...continue reading »

Exercise and the Fat Gene

New Research on the US Amish community demonstrates that there is a "fat gene" AND that you can combat it with vigorous exercise.

The complex interaction between our genes and lifestyles can mean that some people are more likely to pack on pounds than others.

Although it is not completely understood, several genetic variants have been linked to obesity, but there isn't just "one" gene.

However, the most common of these...continue reading »
