SLEEPING PILLS

Controlling for poor health did NOT explain the excess deaths associated with sleeping pills

Adjusting for poor health, things such as asthma, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, etc, did NOT explain the increased risk of death associated with sleeping pills.
"Control of selective prescription of hypnotics for patients in poor health did not explain the observed excess mortality," the paper notes.
Later they say, "neither the level of individual health nor the presence of particular [health problems such as asthma or cardiovascular disease or kidney disease, etc] explains the bulk of the hazard associated with the use of hypnotic medications." Read the entire article | Email this article

CALORIES FOR WEIGHT LOSS

3500 calories per pound to lose weight is not true for people with less than 55 lbs of fat

The rule of thumb for weight loss is that to lose one pound you need to reduce your calorie intake or increase the calories you burn by 3500 calories.

This is approximately true for people who are obese, but people who have less body fat to start with will lose more than one pound when reducing calorie intake by 3500 calories according to a paper by Dr. Kevin D. Hall from the US's National Institutes of Health.

For example, a person with 44 pounds of body fat only needs to reduce calorie intake by an estimated 2685 calories to lose one pound of weight according to Hall.

"These data indicate that... in people with less than [ 55 pounds ] of initial body fat [ the number of calories to lose one pound of weight ] is indeed significantly lower than the [ 3500 calories per pound ] rule of thumb," Hall notes. Read the entire article | Email this article
