Editor’s Selections:Mahjong epilepsy, creatine stigma, bariatric surgery safety, exercise and appetite, high protein diets and bone health

Uncategorized 24 Comments
By Dr. Peter Janiszewski

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:

  • Mahjong epilepsy? Kevin Zelnio gives everyone a good reason to take it easy when playing mahjong. If you fail to heed Kevin’s advice, you just may end up having a seizure.
  • Creatine has been used as an ergogenic supplement by athletes for many years. Despite much evidence to the contrary, the supplement retains a heavy stigma in the popular press. Colby Vorland of Nutritional Blogma discusses the discrepancy between scientific evidence and naive hysteria.
  • Apparently, bariatric surgery is the second most common abdominal surgery in the US. Dr. Arya Sharma breaks down a recent JAMA study looking at the safety of this popular procedure.
  • Need another reason to go to the gym? Check out Greg Laden’s discussion of new evidence pointing to neuroendocrine mechanics by which exercise attenuates appetite, and how inactivity may increase it.
  • Low-carb/high protein diets; bad for your bones? Steve Parker of Diabetic Mediterranean Diet blog speaks on a new study which suggests the answer is a resounding “Nah!”

Check back next week for some more riveting discussions of health and clinical research!

    As they said there are tons of gold farmers just farming day and night to make some gold for gold sites in order you to buy some. They use bots, macros etc. But please do not forget that “Buying Gold for anything outside of World of Warcraft” is illegal and caouse you some problems in future such as suspending your account.

    One thing is always that one of the most widespread incentives for applying your credit card is a cash-back or maybe rebate provision. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back on various expenses. Depending on the card, you may get 1% again on most expenses, and 5% in return on buying made at convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores as well as ‘member merchants’.
