Exercise in a Pill? The Search Continues Mike Powell/Getty Images Phys Ed Gretchen Reynolds on the science of fitness. Two newly published studies investigate the enticing possibility that we might one day be able to gain the benefits of exercise by downing a pill, rather than by actually sweating. But while some of the research holds out promise for an effective workout pill, there remains the question of whether such a move is wise. The more encouraging of the new studies, which appears this week in Nature Medicine, expands on a major study published last year in Nature. Unexpectedly, the treated mice also began using more oxygen throughout the day and expending about 5 percent more energy than untreated mice, even though they were not moving about more than the other animals. Intrigued, the Scripps scientists, in conjunction with researchers from the Pasteur Institute in France and other institutions, set out to see what their compound might be doing inside muscles to provide this ersatz exercise.

fitness-crazed Photo SAN FRANCISCO — I’M no scientist, but I sure like reading about science. I’m always looking through newspapers for the latest research about and whether it’s still bad for you, or if maybe sugar is poison. So when I found myself 40, fat and weak, I paid special attention to science articles, in the hopes of getting strong. I hired personal trainers certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine in a training methodology “founded on scientific, evidence-based research.” I learned about the science of muscle confusion — central to infomercial workouts like P90X, from I had fun doing these workouts. The program sounded like an unscientific joke. The book came in the mail and then I went to the gym and, per Mr. Now for the astonishing part: It worked. The answer, it turns out, is that there are no cutting-edge scientific studies. I don’t mean that exercise physiologists don’t conduct brilliant research. Even if the funding were there, Mr. You know, those. fitness-crazed

Boston Scientific accused of using counterfeit ingredients - Crossroads Today Boston Scientific accused of using counterfeit ingredients - Crossroads Today By Jackie Wattles NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- A class action lawsuit against Boston Scientific made public Thursday alleges the company used counterfeit material from China to manufacture toxic vaginal mesh implants. The suit filed in a West Virgina federal court is yet another in the mounting litigation that's been brought against makers of vaginal mesh implants. Patients have said the devices caused miscarriages and other severe medical issues. A few cases have been settled, and more than 70,000 civil lawsuits have been consolidated into an ongoing case playing out in federal court. The West Virgina suit goes beyond the claims made in those cases. If the allegations are substantiated, Boston Scientific could face criminal charges and even heftier payouts than it would in other civil cases. At issue is an ingredient called resin. Amber Mostyn, the lead attorney in the case, said the primary goal is to get an injunction to halt the sale of Boston Scientific's vaginal mesh implants.
HOUSTON, Jan. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mostyn Law, a Houston-based firm, has accused a leading U.S. medical company of running an international conspiracy that sold defective vaginal surgical mesh, made of counterfeit supplies it smuggled from China. The firm, headed by attorneys Amber and Steve Mostyn, sued Boston Scientific Corp. and three other companies under the Racketeering and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) on behalf of women who have suffered severe discomfort, bleeding, infections, painful intercourse, urinary problems and other complications from the plastic mesh implants. The class-action lawsuit says that after losing its U.S. supplier of the synthetic resin to produce the mesh, Boston Scientific bought unverified, substandard material from a known counterfeiter in China. The company took extraordinary measures to avoid being caught by U.S. and Chinese authorities, at times acting like a drug dealer to hide multiple overseas shipments, the suit says.

Boston Sci Accused of Racketeering, Using Counterfeit Resin Boston Sci Accused of Racketeering, Using Counterfeit Resin Boston Scientific has been sued under the Racketeering and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) for allegedly orchestrating a conspiracy to sell misbranded transvaginal mesh made from counterfeit plastic smuggled from China. Qmed News A federal recent lawsuit filed in West Virginia observes that, despite the controversy surrounding transvaginal mesh, Boston Scientific still collects $120 million in revenue on average from the sale of the product, which is implanted in roughly 55,000 women each year. The polymer used to make all of Boston Scientific’s mesh, the polypropylene Marlex HGX-030-1, had been specified in the regulatory documents filed for Boston Scientific’s mesh products. Therefore, no other polymers could be used in its current mesh products. But in 2011, the company began to encounter difficulties obtaining the material from its supplier, Chevron and Phillips/Sumika in LaPorte, TX. She had been treated with the company’s Obtryx-Halourethral sling system.

Good afternoon, lovely ones! Back in January, when we asked for content suggestions, we had several requests for tutorials on shoulder adjustments. In theory, picking a size based on your high bust should give you a proper fit through your shoulders, but that’s not always the case. Shoulders are one of the largest areas of variance on the human body. Women with the exact same measurements everywhere else can have a huge range of shoulder measurements, thanks to genetics and lifestyle. Personally, I make a Narrow Shoulder Adjustment on almost every dress and top I make. Gather Your Supplies A bodice pattern! Determining Ideal Shoulder Fit First up, who needs a Narrow Shoulder Adjustment? Pinch out the extra fabric, until your shoulder seam hits nicely at that pivot point, and pin it in place. Marking Our Pattern The very first thing you want to do, when making shoulder adjustments, is mark in your seam allowances along the shoulder seam, neckline, and upper armscye. And…that’s it!

Low back pain isn’t for Christmas, let alone life Many riders are troubled by low back pain, and it seems common that it has become an accepted 'just part of being a cyclist'. Three hours into a group ride and you can see a bit of squirming and sitting upright going on. The low back area is a bit of a nightmare when it comes to muscles, tendons, nerves and bones. Take, for example, the hamstring muscles. They cross the knee joint, and also the hip joint. They help bring your heel to your backside from straight leg to flexed leg, and also help push your knee from raised to straight. As a crazy little way to illustrate how connections between muscle, nerve and tendon can be beyond what we think is rational, try this little exercise. Take your shoes off, stand up and touch your toes. Now try to touch your toes again – see how much further you can reach? Prevention, not cure Rather, I want to address what you can do to minimise the likelihood of incurring back pain while riding and in normal life. Look down. What to do?

Learn how to wheelie, with Anna Glowinski There’s a sound practical reason why you’d want to learn how to wheelie: it helps you manoeuvre the bike up and over obstacles. But perhaps more importantly in many people's eyes, it's old-school cool. In this video, Anna Glowinski talks you through the basics, from getting into the right starting position and correct gear, then leaning back to find the right balance point, and keeping the bike rolling smoothly with judicious dabs of pedals and rear brake. From there it's practise, practise and more practise – before you know it you'll be riding everywhere on one wheel. Maybe. Step 1: Get into a low gear It’s also helpful to find a bit of an upslope, because that will help with popping up the front wheel. Select the little ring at the front, and a gear three or four down from easiest at the back. Step 2: Place your strongest foot near the top of the pedal turn You might be thinking that this is the point where you “heave” up the front wheel with your arms.
Outgoing people with anxious minds – or minds that overthink – tend to feel anxiety the most intensely, often because we don’t talk about it. And by “often” I mean never. Our anxiety is a contrast to our big, bold personalities. Strangers would never guess it. We never know when to fight or flight, and our self-angst is maxed out. Our day normally goes something like this: Anxiety: Okay but what if – Me: Homie we went over this a thousand times and we totally resolved it. That might mean we’ll have lots of friends or acquaintances but veryfew close friends who we share our world with. 12 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But An Anxious Mind | Healing bright

Tracy Anderson's no-fail, butt-sculpting workout | Well+Good Workout trends come and go, but the tried-and-true routines stand the test of time because they, well, deliver. Exhibit A: Tracy Anderson has been fiercely teaching her butt-sculpting workout since she first began her career—which started with none other than Jennifer Lopez. (Clearly, it’s helped Jenny from the block maintain a certain asset for all this time.) All week long, you’ve been pulsing and lifting along with the dance cardio queen’s muscle-targeting workouts as part of Well+Good’s (Re)New Year challenge, but that doesn’t mean it’s time for rest. Her secret? While it may not seem like your average, pain-in-the-butt workout—there are no squats in sight—Anderson promises it will seriously burn. Her only reminder is to keep your foot relaxed, and instead focus on the placement of your knee and hips—that way you’ll hit the right angles—and reach those legs as high as you can. Missed Day 3? The (Re)New Year series is not a “New Year, New You” program.
