alt text

(Best Syndication News) As we age it becomes more difficult to lose weight, but there are some things we can do to take off the pounds. Dr. Oz said that our metabolism slows down and we naturally gain weight.

There are studies to back-up his claim. The Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) conducted a study and found that athletes, even if they continue to exercise, can’t avoid putting on extra pounds. Men over the age of 50 lose muscle mass causing them to burn fewer calories.

On Monday’s show, Dr. Mehmet Oz said that one of the scariest things in life is “mid-life weight gain”. When you were young, it seemed like you could eat almost anything and not gain weight. But that changed in your 30s. He revealed his “Defy your age Diet”.

BPA chemical exposure in early pregnancy could be related to wheezing children

(Best Syndication News) - BPA (Bisphenol A) is a chemical that is commonly found in products, plastic water bottles, and canned food containers.

(Best Syndication News) - Researchers from New Zealand and Singapore said that a mother's diet when pregnant can change the child's DNA function which could increase the chance of obesity many years later. The study will be published in the April 26, 2011 issue of the journal Diabetes.

The study was led by Keith Godfrey, Professor of Epidemiology and Human Development at the University of Southamptom. The study showed that there were epigenetic changes that made it easier to accumulate more fat. These epigenetic changes were independent of how much the mother weighed or how much the child weighed at birth. In the research, they measured the epigenetic changes in almost 300 newborn babies and were able to demonstrate a relationship to this measurement and a child's degree of being overweight at six or nine years of age.

Planned Parenthood Funding and Government Shutdown Dilemma

(Best Syndication News) Planned Parenthood funding may get cut if Republicans in Congress get their way. Critics of the program say that the organization has taken $500 million in profits over the last nine years.

The Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life entity that has spent over $500,000 to de-fund Planned Parenthood (PP), says it is not worth shutting down the government to save this program.

“It is extraordinary that the President sees federal funding for the nation’s number one abortion provider as more important than paychecks for federal workers and funding for our military,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA List said.
