Each week, Dr. Peter Janiszewski selects several notable posts from Health and Clinical Research. He blogs at Obesity Panacea.
Here are some of the past week’s most intriguing discussions:
- Have you ever wondered: what would be the effect of eating a Big Mac and following it up with a vodka and Redbull, specifically among Brazilian men? No, well some researchers thought it worthy of investigation. TwoYaks of Geneflow discusses this interesting study.
- Not yet convinced that acupuncture is completely a placebo effect? I have a feeling that even the most devout believers in the effectiveness of needle pricking will be persuaded otherwise by a new study eloquently discussed by Orac of Respectful Insolence.
- Scicurious of Neurotic Physiology talks female orgasms and ejaculation. Fascinating stuff that is sure to make you blush, and maybe have an orgasm… (sexy photos included).
- The concept of muscle memory when concerning resistance training has always been thought to be of neural origin. Colby Vorland of Nutritional Blogma discusses a new study suggesting another important player in this physiological phenomenon.
How is that for some cool science?
See you next week for another installment.
