Obesity (Life)

A look at the triggers for obesity and how the ostracizing by general society is based on false grounds and may even be acerbating the issue. The article does not touch on the many causes for obesity that are not related to addiction responses, but for the group that are, this is a good point of both the weakness in the societal view and how some choose to act on that view.

Medicine (Science)

I’ve always been of the opinion that we have barely scratched the surface on our understanding despite the generally accepted belief certain theories and the like are facts. However, even I fall prey to the idea that a thoroughly explored area is a known. This article shows there’s still more to discover even in something like human anatomy, and what they discovered has huge implications for the treatment of immune responses in people with chronic illnesses.
