Income Inequality Hurts Teen Health

Posted by Tony Graf On February - 9 - 2015ADD COMMENTS

A new international study published in The Lancet has revealed that socioeconomic disparities between the richest and the poorest in 34 countries widened over the last decade. It revealed that poor teenagers overall were more likely to be less physically active, have higher body mass indexes (BMI), and report more physical and psychological troubles, such as headaches and “feeling low.”

“A strong international focus on reducing childhood poverty and mortality in children under 5 years has not been matched by a similar response in older age groups, resulting in widening socioeconomic inequalities in adolescent health,” said lead author Drank Elgar, a psychiatry professor at McGill University in Canada, in a press release. “If health inequalities are now widening in such abundantly rich countries, particularly during the so-called ‘healthy years’ of adolescence, then these trends are especially alarming for future populations.”

Teen Behaviour

Kids that grow up poor are also more likely to be at risk of smoking, binge drinking, substance abuse, and child abuse, according to the study that highlights on previously-unexplored topic of teen behaviour.

A report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation in the UK notes: “The most plausible explanation for income inequality’s apparent effect on health and social problems is ‘status anxiety.’ This suggests that income inequality is harmful because it places people in a hierarchy that increases status competition and causes stress, which leads to poor health and other negative outcomes.”

“Investment in youth now could pay huge dividends in health outcomes and reduce health disparities in later years,” researchers from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health wrote in a comment on the study. “A focus should be on social factors that affect the health and wellbeing of young people.”

Risk Of Cognitive Impairment Increased By Childhood Football

Posted by Kelley Halter On February - 2 - 2015ADD COMMENTS

A recently-concluded study has disclosed that the risk of memory and thinking problems in adulthood is prominent in former National Football League (NFL) players who participated in tackle football before the age of 12 years.

risk of cognitive impairment increased by childhood football

The DETECT study involved assessment of 42 former NFL players, with an average age of 52 years, using a battery of neuropsychological tests. All the participants were experiencing memory and thinking problems for at least six months. They were divided into two groups according to whether they had first played tackle football before or after the age of 12 years.

It was found that subjects who were playing football aged <12 years performed significantly worse on all test measures, than those who started football aged ≥12 years.

It was commented by Robert Stern of Boston University School of Medicine that our study suggests that there may be a critical window of brain development during which repeated head impacts can lead to thinking and memory difficulties later in life. It was emphasized by Christopher M. Filley of the University of Colorado School of Medicine that the researchers were “unable to assess the total number of head impacts, so it’s possible that the number of impacts is responsible for the reported results rather than the early age of exposure to football”.

Miranda Kerr posted a spiritual message on her Kora website on New Year. Miranda said: ‘This time of year is one of my favorites, mostly because it’s the season of goodwill and gratitude.

‘As we head into 2015, I ask that we all continue to consider the impact we have on each other’s lives, and how a simple act of kindness can transform another person’s day.

80 Million Bacteria Gets Sealed With A Kiss

Posted by Kelley Halter On December - 11 - 2014ADD COMMENTS

According to research published in the open access journal Microbiome, as many as 80 million bacteria are transferred during a 10-second kiss.

passionate kiss

It was also found by the study that partners who kiss each other at least nine times a day share similar communities of oral bacteria. Researchers from Micropia and TNO in the Netherlands studied 21 couples and asked them to fill out questionnaires on their kissing behavior including their average intimate kiss frequency. The researchers then took swab samples for investigating the composition of their oral microbiota on the tongue and in their saliva.

It was revealed that salivary microbiota become similar when couples intimately kiss at relatively high frequencies. On average, it was found that at least nine intimate kisses per day led to couples having significantly shared salivary microbiota.

80 Million Bacteria Gets Sealed With A Kiss

Lead author Remco Kort, from TNO’s Microbiology and Systems Biology department and adviser to the Micropia museum of microbes, said: “Intimate kissing involving full tongue contact and saliva exchange appears to be a courtship behavior unique to humans and is common in over 90% of known cultures. Interestingly, the current explanations for the function of intimate kissing in humans include an important role for the microbiota present in the oral cavity, although to our knowledge, the exact effects of intimate kissing on the oral microbiota have never been studied. We wanted to find out the extent to which partners share their oral microbiota, and it turns out, the more a couple kiss, the more similar they are.”

The researchers found the quantity of probiotic bacteria in the receiver’s saliva rose threefold after an intimate kiss. It was calculated that in total 80 million bacteria would have been transferred during a 10-second kiss.

Australian Cricket team Captain Michael Clarke broke down repeatedly while paying tribute to former team mate Phillip Hughes on Saturday.

Bats and cricket caps have been placed outside homes across the US, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East as a sign of respect with pictures posted on social media using the hashtag #putyourbatsout.

The 25-year-old Hughes died on Thursday after suffering a catastrophic injury he sustained when struck on the head by a ball by Sean Abbott during a domestic match. Hughes’ death triggered a wave of mourning in Australia and around the world.

“Words cannot express the loss we feel as a team right now,” Clarke said. “We are going to miss that cheeky grin and that twinkle in his eye. He epitomized what the baggy green was about and what it means to us all.  ”The world lost one of its great blokes this week and we are all poorer for it.”

Cricket Australia has retired Hughes’s one-day international number, 64, in his memory.

“It’s been such a tragic week for the Hughes family and the cricket community and I can’t imagine how anybody can be expected to play test cricket on Thursday. In fact I don’t think it would be right,” said Clarke’s predecessor as captain, Ricky Ponting.

However, these issues are solved by an online tutor as the tutor has only a single child to focus on and he or she thus proves to be the rightly educational assistant & authority to create and nurture educational interests and skills in your child.

Salma Hayek Advocates Against Domestic Violence

Posted by Tony Graf On November - 11 - 2014Comments Off

Salma Hayek is raising awareness among people about domestic violence these days. The 48-year-old Mexican actress was a speaker at TheWrap Power Women’s Breakfast in Beverly Hills, California and talked emotionally about her contributions on behalf of women in front of Hollywood female executives.

Salma Hayek

Hayek wore a sleeveless LBD styled with a matching cardigan and shoulder bag. The mother-of-one displayed her slim physique in a knee-length black dress with a pair of strappy high heels. Salma Hayek styled her dark locks in layered curls and kept her flawless complexion looking natural. Known for her smouldering looks and enviable shape, Salma urged others to prevent domestic violence. ‘If you want to stop violence in the world it has to start in the home,’ she said. ‘If we can win this war, we can win the war against violence.’

Salma Hayek Advocates Against Domestic Violence

Salma argued that she didn’t want her status as a movie star to hinder the work of others. ‘I was so passionate about it that to me it was a part of me that had nothing to do with being a celebrity.’ She further added, ‘Sometimes you do more awareness by being aware of yourself and living in the presence of this awareness than by talking until you die. I don’t come from a background of domestic violence, but I think it’s incredibly important.’

Recently, Salma Hayek produced a documentary Humaira: The Game Changer on Pakistani education advocate Humaira Bachal, at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Deauville, France. The conference that was attended by several female leaders in the fields of business, science, education and human rights, supported the mission to strengthen “women influence throughout the globe”.
