[Image source: iStockPhoto | lofilolo] Alcohol-related violence has been making headlines with increasing frequency, but not everyone who drinks alcohol, even to excess, becomes aggressive. In fact it's only a small minority, says psychologist and Stanford University substance abuse researcher, Dr Adrienne Heinz. "Very few people when they drink actually become aggressive," says Heinz.

But their behaviour can have far-reaching consequences. "Alcohol remains clearly the most important drug to be addressed as far as harm is concerned," says Dr David Caldicott, emergency medicine consultant at the Calvary Hospital in Canberra.

Most people receive a mental reward from working out in the form of increased levels of dopamine -- a brain chemical associated with feelings of motivation, pleasure and well-being. But some people apparently don't get that benefit because of genes that interfere with the release of dopamine, said study lead researcher Rodney Dishman, a professor of kinesiology at the University of Georgia. "Variation in genes for dopamine receptors, as well as some other neural signaling genes, help explain why about 25 percent of the participants drop out of exercise or don't exercise at the recommended amount," Dishman said.

"Combined with personality measures, we think these genes may help explain why some people have a natural urge to be active, while others never do," he said. Year 10 - Issues in Sport.

In a shift from its traditional road safety campaigns, the Transport Accident Commission has collaborated with a leading trauma surgeon, a crash investigation expert and a world-renowned Melbourne artist to produce ‘Graham’, an interactive lifelike model demonstrating human vulnerability.

Graham has been designed with bodily features that might be present in humans if they had evolved to withstand the forces involved in crashes. Studies have shown that the human body can only cope with impacts at speeds people can reach on their own, unassisted by vehicles. “People can survive running at full pace into a wall but when you’re talking about collisions involving vehicles, the speeds are faster, the forces are greater and the chances of survival are much slimmer,” TAC chief executive officer Joe Calafiore said.
