    PET scans showing someone with brown fat (l) and no brown fat. (Andreas G. Wibmer/Heiko Schöder/MSKCC) ============================================================== A large new study has provided strong evidence that people with brown fat in their bodies are less likely to suffer from a range of health conditions. "For the first time, it reveals a link to lower risk of certain conditions," says one of the researchers, Rockefeller University Hospital physician Paul Cohen. "These findings make us more confident about the potential of targeting brown fat for therapeutic benefit." Brown fat or brown adipose tissue (BAT) is particularly common in hibernating mammals and...

    Cosmopolitan is featuring multiple “plus-size,” “fat” women in a magazine issue that commends every body size as “healthy.” The February 2021 edition of Cosmopolitan features women of various body sizes with superimposed text reading “This is healthy! 11 women on why wellness doesn’t have to be one-size-fits-all.” Callie Thorpe, a “plus size” blogger and model is among the featured women, and described to Cosmopolitan her involvement with the “body neutrality movement, which focused on what your body can do rather than how it looks.” “Plus-size people often feel like they can’t be part of the wellness space,” Thorpe told Cosmopolitan....

At the smallest scale American alchemy created new transuranic elements and some awesome bombs! Our culture dominates the landscape worldwide! American achievement is simply too vast to list even a fraction of all the great things Americans have done. Sadly if this stolen election succeeds then we all know they will steal the Senate election in Georgia.They have to become the law in order to continue to stay above...
  • Sharon Stone: It’s a ‘big, fat, stupid lie’ if anyone says looks don’t matter

    Sharon Stone says that looks matter. “You don’t even realize how much [looks] matter until they start to go,” Stone, who stars in the new Netflix drama “Ratched,” a prequel to “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” told the Telegraph in a newly released interview. It’s a “big, fat stupid lie if anyone says that they don’t,” the Beverly Hills resident says. That’s why Stone, 62, is disciplined about maintaining her trim physique, despite COVID-19 restrictions.

    Black, Latino and American Indian and Alaskan Native people were disproportionately hospitalized for Covid-19, according to a new analysis of 12 states' populations published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. ... In a nearly two-month period from late April to late June, there were 48,788 cumulative Covid-19 hospitalizations in the states that reported race and hospitalization data -- Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia and Washington. "The share of the hospitalizations of White patients was substantially smaller vs. their share of the population in all 12 states," the authors found. The authors...

    A West Michigan sheriff sent detectives to investigate a Facebook message he received calling him fat. The incident report obtained by Newschannel 3 through a Freedom of Information Act request, revealed Kalamazoo County Sheriff Richard Fuller directed his investigators to the home of the man accused of sending the message. While no crime occurred, the report showed Fuller sent detectives, not deputies, to talk to the man accused of sending the sheriff a Facebook message: "Your a fat a-- who needs to go on a diet.

    Recently, I saw an image of two women walking down the street. Both of them were wearing a slightly different iteration of the same outfit: high-waisted, knee-length shorts with graphic T-shirts tucked in, and a pair of chunky sneakers. The look is trendy; a perfect encapsulation of the pared down, vintage-inspired aesthetic embraced by GenZ TikTok influencers who seem to take style cues from teen movies released 25 years before they were born. It is, as the kids say, a vibe. The women’s heads are cropped from the photo, leaving them unidentifiable. Based on the trendiness of the clothing alone,...

    A formal review is to be launched into why people from a black and minority ethnic background appear to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The move follows calls for the government to investigate the number of deaths of people from the BAME community and those working for the NHS, during the coronavirus pandemic. Sky News analysis found out of the 54 frontline health and social care workers in England and Wales that have died because of COVID-19, 70% of them were black or from an ethnic minority. Our analysis also found that four of the five health trusts in England...

    For months, scientists have been poring over data about cases and deaths to understand why it is that COVID-19 manifests itself in different ways around the world, with certain factors such as the age of the population repeatedly popping up as among the most significant determinants. Now, one of the largest studies conducted of COVID-19 infection in the United States has found that obesity of patients was the single biggest factor in whether those with COVID-19 had to be admitted to a hospital. "The chronic condition with the strongest association with critical illness was obesity, with a substantially higher odds...

    As we reported earlier — There were 83,780 flu-pneumonia deaths in America this season.The CDC estimated 24,000 to 62,000 flu deaths this year. We also have Washington DC experts continually changing their “scientific models.”Dr. Anthony Fauci changed his estimates from 1.7 million deaths to 200,000 possible deaths in a span of 14 days!This is the same doctor who proposed shutting down the US economy.The experts continue to promote “models” and “theories” at their press briefings.Why not facts?

    A woman filmed driving without a seat belt says it wasn’t her fault because the belts are ‘racist to fat people’. The anonymous woman from New Zealand said she finds it difficult to strap herself in because she is overweight. If they’re going to give me a fine for not fitting my seatbelt, that’s just being racist, to the fat people.’ ‘They’re just being racist, like what do they think the whole world is skinny or something? What about the big people?’ One of the passengers points out seat belt sizing is not racist as ‘fat people’ are not a...

    Sports Illustrated has introduced its next slate of finalist models for its upcoming swimsuit issue, and a plus-sized model, a 56-year-old model, and a bald fitness trainer will be among them. The magazine introduced the six finalists that the magazine touted as its most diverse ever. The finalists were winnowed down from seventeen hopefuls unveiled last October, the Daily Mail reported. Before this year’s winner is announced, the magazine is set to send the finalists to a photo-shoot conducted in the Turks & Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory southeast of the Bahamas. The finalists include Philadelphia native Christie Valdiserri,...

    He put the fat in fatwa. A morbidly obese ISIS fanatic dubbed “Jabba the Jihadi” has been captured by Iraqi forces — who loaded him onto a flatbed truck because he couldn’t fit in a police car. The 560-pound mufti Abu Abdul Bari, also known as Shifa al-Nima, was nabbed Thursday by an elite SWAT team of the Nineveh regiment in the city of Mosul, according to Stars and Stripes. The jumbo jihadist was known for “provocative speeches against the security forces” and is considered one of the top leaders of “ISIS gangs,” Iraqi security officials said in a...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's defense failed him at the opening of his Senate impeachment trial on Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., had one job. He just had to collect 51 votes for the trial rules he had written, in close consultation with White House officials, to deliver Trump an acquittal quickly, quietly and with as few surprises as possible. He couldn't do it. Fellow Republicans balked at his plan so late in the game — moments before the start of the trial — that he had to order up handwritten changes sought by Democrats just to secure...
  • Did Joe Biden call an Iowa voter ‘fat’ during heated exchange? Twitter sure thinks so

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden lashed out at a man on Thursday during an Iowa town hall, challenging him to an IQ test and calling him a liar. But many observers think the former vice president may have also mocked the man’s weight. At one point during the heated confrontation that occurred when a voter asked about Hunter Biden's payments from a Ukrainian gas company, Joe Biden appeared to begin calling the man “fat” before catching himself. “Look, fat, look, here’s the deal,” Biden appears to have said near the end of the exchange, prompting the voter to tell Biden...

    While obesity is primarily associated with weight gain, a new study suggests it triggers inflammation in the nervous system that could damage important regions of the brain. Developments in MRI, like diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), a technique that tracks the diffusion of water along the brain's signal-carrying white matter tracts, have enabled researchers to study this damage directly. "Brain changes were found in obese adolescents related to regions responsible for control of appetite, emotions and cognitive functions," said study co-author Pamela Bertolazzi from the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. The World Health Organisation (WTO) data indicates the number of...
  • How to get rid of visceral fat: Following this eating pattern could reduce the belly fat

    HOW TO get rid of visceral fat: This type of body fat is deemed harmful because of where it’s stored in the body - the abdominal cavity - so what can you do to reduce it? Making changes to diet has been shown to help, and following a particular eating pattern has proven effective. Visceral fat’s location within the abdominal cavity means it surrounds vital organs such as the liver, stomach and intestines. If visceral fat is left to build up here, a person’s risk of developing serious health problems, like type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, is increased. Related...

    No, this is not from the Babylon Bee. It actually comes from the Oprah Winfrey Network, and a segment featuring Professor Britney Cooper, who sports a PhD from Emory University and who currently is an associate professor in the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. With that sort of background, perhaps it isn’t surprising to eternalize blame for obesity on racism and seem to indict President Trump for it. In fairness, she only mentions Trump before launching her indictment of racism as the cause of black female obesity. Here are few screen grabs of her subtitled rant,...

    How is it that ever since the government began telling us what to eat, we have gotten fatter and sicker? In 1977, when the government first set dietary guidelines, the average American male weighed 170 pounds. He now weighs 197. It’s not any better for women —145 to 170. And you don’t need an academic study to know the same thing is happening to kids. Just look around. The weight gain has real-life consequences: the percentage of Americans diagnosed with type 2 diabetes—a condition that can lead to severe medical issues—has risen from 2% in 1977 to over 9% in...
