    Lifestyle and Genetics – the Two Main Causes of Obesity

    Posted on May 1, 2016 @ 12:26 am

    It is estimated that some 30% of Americans are no obese. Not just overweight, but obese. Also, some $147 billion per year is spent in this country on obesity, including on bariatric procedures and on health care provided due to comorbid conditions. Most of us assume that someone who is obese simply eats too much. While this is true, the reality is that obesity is actually caused by lifestyle, as well as by genetics. Let’s explore.

    Lifestyle

    We know that people who eat an unhealthy diet and lead a sedentary lifestyle are more likely to become obese. In fact, we know this is the main cause. Usually, this is a condition known as ‘creeping obesity’, which means people get heavier and heavier over time. It is also a negative cycle, as people who become obese start to move less, meaning they put more weight on, move even less, and so on.

    Genetics

    The biggest risk to obesity is simple math: eating more calories than what you burn. However, there are some people who have a predisposition towards becoming obese. These people are more likely to consumer a higher amount of calories than others. Additionally, if they want to maintain a certain level of weight, they must consume fewer calories than the average person.

    People who are obese often also have higher natural insulin levels, which means that their bodies find it easier to store fat. This leads to insulin obesity, which is now accepted as the most common reason for genetically-related obesity. Having high levels of insulin is also psychologically linked to overeating. If someone has too much insulin in their bloodstream, they feel hungrier. Furthermore, they will find that sweet food tastes even nicer. But, the more sugar they eat, the more likely it is that they turn their cells into fat, meaning they become overweight. Once they lose weight, the fat cells don’t disappear, they shrink. These cells then feel starved, sending messages to the brain encouraging the individual to eat more.

    What it Means

    Clearly, obesity is down to two certain things. Yes, it is by and large caused by poor lifestyle choices, but there are clear situations in which those ‘choices’ aren’t really choices. What researchers are now looking into is whether the genetic factors are new, or whether people who became obese in past generations due to lifestyle alone have altered their genes, and passed this on to their children. This would explain the tremendous rise in obesity among not just adults, but children as well. Either way, denying the role genetics play in obesity is a big mistake.

    There is a clear link between genetics and obesity, but we must also not forget the final piece of the puzzle: our consumerist society. We live in a world with an abundance of food, and in one where junk food manufacturers spend millions convincing us to purchase their products. While we have a ‘choice’ about whether or not to eat these products, you must be incredibly strong willed to make the right choice in this situation.

    Learning The Secrets About Businesses

    Posted on April 16, 2016 @ 3:08 pm

    Bail Bonds and Finding a Bondsman Each time a person is arrested, a judge sets a bail amount based on the gravity of the crime and the criminal background of the individual. Until they pay the bail amount, the defendant will stay in jail until they have to appear in court. This may be a problem for those who are arrested. A person who has work and family duties can’t be locked away for a long duration of time. Those who are faced with this predicament should find a way to post bail soon so they can be immediately released from custody. A bail bond functions as a guarantee between the court and a bail company or bail bondsman. The bond is an assurance of the defendant showing up in court when required to. If the arrested person does not keep their word about appearing in court, the bail bondsman will settle the bail amount. Hence, bail bond companies seek collateral for higher bail amounts. Securing a bond agent comes with a fee equivalent to 10% of the total amount set by the court. Most state governments decide how much bail bond companies can charge. The fee, which is non-refundable, is meant to cover the services provided for getting bail. For low bail amounts, collateral is usually not required.
    Why not learn more about Services?
    In most cases, it is the spouse, a friend or a relative of the defendant who initially calls a bondsman. Key details about the defendant, including his name and date of birth, date and location of arrest and jail name will be requested by the bail bond company. If there are pieces of required information which are then unknown, the bond agent can help get them. The fact that bail is not considered income for the state or punishment for the defendant is surprising to some people. As mentioned previously, it is but a form of guarantee that the defendant will not run from his legal responsibilities. Usually, the bondsman’s fee is affordable and will make no considerable impact on the defendant’s finances. Paying the bail company is, in fact, more economical than paying bail or remaining in prison for weeks. Securing bail from a reputable bondsman is often a quick and easy process.
    Learning The “Secrets” of Bonds
    When selecting a bondsman, there are important considerations to be made. First off, the business should be legitimate. This kind of information about bail bond companies is so easy to find these days using the Internet. The privacy policy of the company is also a key factor. All personal information provided must be held in full confidentiality, and only information considered highly necessary should be requested. Lastly, look into the interest rates and fees. Keep in mind that good quality service usually comes with a premium.

    Where To Start with Lotions and More

    Posted on @ 2:32 pm

    How to Get Tan Without the Sun or Tanning Bed The sun can cause some serious issues for your skin and your body if you are exposed for too long, this is why people have been looking for tanning alternatives. Self-tanners have been around for a long time now, but when they were first introduced they did not work properly, they would leave people’s skin an orange color. From this products have been changed and spray tanning is the new craze in beauty. The newest technology is a spray tan that comes in an aerosol can. This is great because many of the lotions and pump sprays on the market will still leave you with an uneven tan if not applied correctly. As hard as the manufacturers have tried to fix the sunless tanning lotions, many of them will still leave you with an orange tone. Like I stated earlier, you best bet is to use a tanning spray that comes in an aerosol can, this will leave you with a good looking tan that is even and the correct color. Instead of exposing your skin to harmful UV rays that come from the sun and tanning beds, get the tan you desire with a tan in a can. If you do not trust yourself applying a spray tan you can go to a professional shop and get a quality spray tan. If this is the way you wish to go to get your spray tan then you will need to find a reputable shop to go to. In order to find the best shop you should do some research. The first option is to ask around, you will want to speak with people you trust so you know they are giving you good information. The internet will be another place you will want to go for research, you will be able to view ratings and reviews for different shops, you can also compare services and prices of the shops you are interested in.
    Why Solutions Aren’t As Bad As You Think
    Once you find a quality shop that you trust, you will need to call them to set up an appointment, at this time you can also ask them any questions that you might have. Many people like to get a spray tan for a special occasion, such as a wedding, if this is what you are doing and it is your first time then I would highly recommend going in for a trial run a month or so in advance. Tanning products can have different outcomes on different people, so the product that a certain shop uses might not look great on you. If the results look good and you are happy with what you see then you should set up another appointment closer to the event date, if you do not like what you see then you can search for another shop.The 10 Rules of Lotions And How Learn More
