Bling bishop ordered out

Research shows that 81 percent of 10-year-olds say they are afraid of being fat. Many young people are already the target of bullying at school, and this additional focus on weight and size only adds fuel to the fire, said Lynn Grefe, president of the group, a nonprofit that supports people with eating disorders and their families. Broken down by grade, local fifth- and seventh-graders saw slight improvements in the proportion of students at a healthy weight; ninth graders saw slight declines. The same trends occurred statewide. The states body composition standards are based on two measures: the percent of fat in a childs body and the childs body mass index. These are calculated using two measurements: a caliper to measure skin folds and whats called a bioelectric impedance analyzer, which measures the resistance of body tissues to a small electrical signal.

Prevent Sports Injuries With Exercise, Review Says

The findings on strength training and stretching were similar across studies, even though the studies used different exercise programs and had different outcomes of interest. Therefore, the researchers suggested that these findings can be generalizable outside of this review. Proprioception was associated with a 52 percent decreased risk of sports injury, and multi-method programs led to a 37 percent decreased risk. The results from proprioception and multi-programs were not comparable across studies, so the findings on these two methods were less conclusive and generalizable than those on other methods. Some of the studies also considered whether or not the injury was acute (from a single event) or from overuse, and found that exercise programs were associated with a 38 percent decreased risk of acute injuries and a 47 percent decreased risk of overuse injuries.
