How many times in the past have you said “I need to lose weight?” How many times have you used the phrase incorrectly? Many people who think that they need to lose weight are actually in need of fat loss. There are major differences between the two concepts.
The body can lose weight in several ways. Weight can be lost from the water content of the body, from fat or from muscle mass. This is why weight fluctuates on a daily basis. The Read more…
More and more people today are looking for new ways to get into shape. The health benefits of exercise are widely known in the modern world, and many people struggle to find the time and the motivation to be physically active. Many people today may find joining a gym for the first time intimidating enough that they remain sedentary for most of their lives. Some gyms are much friendlier to newcomers than others.

Alex Rodriguezs is no longer an everyday, productive, Major League Baseball player, and the suspension has nothing to do with it. ARods injuries and surgeries have made him a shell of the player he used to be. You should have seen that last year.
The suspension has distracted from this reality.
Over the past three seasons ARods power has diminished even on the PEDs and last year he limped through 44 games and hit home runs at a third of the rate he did at his peak, and half the rate of his career average. His batting average was .244, by far the lowest average of his career.
But his biggest problem is that his movement skills have deteriorated to the point where they are broken. He is broken.
HOUSTON — Patients with cancers of the head and neck who received intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) – a technology designed to more precisely target cancer cells and spare nearby tissue – experienced improved outcomes, as well as reduced toxicities, compared to patients receiving conventional radiation therapy, according to new research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
The study, published in the journal Cancer, is the first to document this finding in a large population-based group, as well as the first to suggest IMRT could improve outcomes in head and neck cancer patients. <

Dentists detect around three quarters of all oral cancer referrals according to The British Dental Health Foundation, which is behind Mouth Cancer Action Month in November.
Dr Taher Rashid, a private dentist in Farnham, Surrey, said: ‘A valuable opportunity is being lost because in most cases the disease is already metastatic when it is diagnosed.

In November, the Fort Worth Star Telegram wrote about several people who were “losing” under the Affordable Care Act. A month later it ended up having to do a pretty significant mea culpa by executive editor Jim Witt.
The flaws in the story caught the attention of health care blogger and author Maggie Mahar. Some of the accounts of people who lost their old policies and were facing stupendous prices for lousy new Obamacare policies didn’t ring true. A 26-year-old woman, even one with multiple sclerosis, wasn’t going to have to pay up to $1,800 a month for coverage that was inferior to what she had before.
So Mahar did a bit of reporting of her own.
She found that several people interviewed for the story had connections to the tea party or similar views and that that 26-year-old with MS had actually found decent affordable coverage on the exchange after all. Others
