Scientists figured out the biggest contributor to early deaths across the world25 years ago, in 1990, maternal and child malnutrition, unsafe drinking water and sanitation were the leading risks for death. Today, unsurprisingly, poor diet has overtaken third world problems as the biggest contributor to early death around the world.

According to new analysis from the leading authority on global disease diet is the second highest (clearly aside from age) killer.

Smoking cigarettes still carries the highest risk factor of premature death, followed by high blood pressure and obesity.

However, the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation – IMHE – says that a combination of dietary factors, from eating too few fruits and vegetables, nuts, and whole grains to too much sodium and cholesterol, is taking a toll on health across the globe.

The IMHE’s study found that the largest contributor to early death globally is high blood pressure, in which age and family history partly play a roll, but so do obesity, smoking, excessive salt consumption, lack of exercise, and drinking large amounts of alcohol.

Noteworthy, alcohol is also one of the top 10 risk factors associated with the highest number of deaths for both men and women.

The study looked at 14 dietary risk factors. Cumulatively, unhealthy eating, including diets low in fruit, whole grains, and vegetables, and diets high in red meat and sugar-sweetened beverages contributed to more deaths than any other factor, causing ischemic heart disease, stroke and diabetes :: Read the full article »»»»


Nicotines Anorexic Effect

If your a filthy fagger, you’ve no doubt said to yourself  ‘fluff it — quitting puts on 2 dress sizes!’ Just for a change, your right.

Researchers have discovered that nicotine decreases the want of food via the activation of Pro-opiomelanocortin – POMC – neurons. (Mutations in the POMC gene have been associated with early onset obesity, adrenal insufficiency, and red hair-pigmentation)

Importantly, the researchers have shown that nicotine causes a dip in appetite via a different pathway to the one that it triggers addiction through.

This means that it’s possible to make a drug that isn’t addictive, but still has nicotine’s goodly appetite-suppressing powers. We don’t usually cut and paste posts, we have to make an exception here, the abstract for this study is overtly clever. Read the full article »»»»
