Already plentiful in high schools, junk food has become more available in middle schools over the past five years, according to the Government Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress

Already plentiful in high schools, junk food has become more available in middle schools over the past five years, according to the Government Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress.

«Parents should know that our schools are now one of the largest sources of unhealthy food for their kids,» Sen. Tom Harkin, who asked for the study, said in an interview.

«Would anyone advocate that we take the fences off the playground for elementary schools and just let kids run around in the streets?» Harkin, D-Iowa, said. «By the same token, why would we allow schools to sort of poison our kids with junk food?»

Obesity among children and teenagers more than doubled in the past three decades, according to the government-chartered Institute of Medicine. Obese kids will become adults with chronic health problems, said Harkin, the senior Democrat on the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee.

He and other lawmakers want the government to set nutrition standards for food throughout schools and not just in the cafeteria.

Giving kids healthier options «should not be a suggestion, it should be a requirement,» said Sen. Patrick Leahy, 온라인카지노 D-Vt., another committee member. Kids are suffering from higher rates of diabetes, high blood pressure and other illnesses normally associated with adults, said Rep. George Miller, D-Calif.

"We are turning organs into hot dogs," Gladwin jokes

강원랜드에서 50만원으로 16억을딴 레전드 -카지노,온라인카지노,파워볼,파워볼 분석법Scientists at the National Institutes of Health think so. They've begun infusing sodium nitrite into volunteers in hopes that it could prove a cheap but potent treatment for sickle cell anemia, heart attacks, brain aneurysms, even an illness that suffocates babies.

Those ailments have something in common: They hinge on problems with low oxygen, problems the government's research suggests nitrite can ease.

Beyond repairing the reputation of this often maligned meat preservative, the work promises to rewrite scientific dogma about how blood flows, and how the body tries to protect itself when that flow is blocked. Indeed, nitrite seems to guard tissues — in the heart, the lungs, the brain — against cellular death when they become starved of oxygen.

It doesn't mean artery-clogging hot dogs are healthy.

But the NIH researchers have filed for new patents on this old, overlooked chemical and are hunting a major pharmaceutical company to help develop it as a therapy — even as doctors await the enrollment of sick patients into research studies in coming months. The scientists are so convinced of nitrite's promise that lead researcher Dr. Mark T. Gladwin says the government will pursue drug development on its own if necessary.

«We are turning organs into hot dogs,» Gladwin jokes. Then he turns serious: «We think we stumbled into an innate protection mechanism.»

If it works, «this drug would be pennies to dollars per day,» says Dr. Christian Hunter of California's Loma Linda University. By January, Hunter hopes to begin studies of nitrite treatment for babies with an often fatal disease called pulmonary hypertension. «It's so easy to use.»

Gladwin and an NIH cardiologist, Dr. Richard Cannon III, discovered nitrite's effect by accident while studying a related compound, nitric oxide, long known to improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels, but difficult to use as a drug.

Gladwin and Cannon injected sodium nitrite into healthy volunteers. Tiny doses almost tripled blood flow. Moreover, when people exercised, nitrite levels plummeted in the muscles being worked — the body was using it.

The researchers were stunned. For 100 years, 온라인카지노 scientists thought nitrite had little medical relevance.

(This study) certainly meets all these three criteria," said Dr

Many doctors give the clot-dissolver hoping it will make the artery-widening operation more successful, but major research presented Tuesday at the annual conference of the European Society of Cardiology found that more patients died in the month following the procedure if they were given the drug.

Experts said the findings are expected to prompt many doctors around the world to stop using the strategy, at least for now.

«A great clinical trial is one that provides a clear-cut answer to the question that is being asked, is one that raises new questions and is one that influences the practice of medicine. (This study) certainly meets all these three criteria,» said Dr. William Wijns, a prominent leader in the field of angioplasty who was not connected with the research.

There are two main options for treating heart attack victims — a clot dissolving drug or angioplasty, where doctors thread a wire through the blood vessels to get at the blood clot that caused the heart attack.

The wire mechanically breaks up the clot. Doctors then inflate a balloon to squash plaque against the wall of the artery and implant a tiny mesh tube at the site of a blockage to permanently prop the artery open.

Angioplasty is considered the more effective option as long as it is done by experienced doctors in well-equipped hospitals. However, most community hospitals do not have such expertise. In those places, 온라인카지노 patients are either treated with a clot-busting drug or transferred to a nearby hospital that can perform the angioplasty within three hours.

"Not eating breakfast is the worst thing you can do, that's really the take-home message for teenage girls," said study author Bruce Barton, the Maryland institute's president and CEO

Girls who ate breakfast of any type had a lower average body mass index, a common obesity gauge, than those who said they didn't. The index was even lower for girls who said they ate cereal for breakfast, according to findings of the study conducted by the Maryland Medical Research Institute. The study received funding from the National Institutes of Health and cereal-maker General Mills.

«Not eating breakfast is the worst thing you can do, that's really the take-home message for teenage girls,» said study author Bruce Barton, the Maryland institute's president and CEO.

The fiber in cereal and healthier foods that normally accompany cereal, 온라인카지노 such as milk and orange juice, may account for the lower body mass index among cereal eaters, Barton said.

The results were gleaned from a larger NIH survey of 2,379 girls in California, Ohio and Maryland who were tracked between ages 9 and 19. Results of the study appear in the September issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Nearly one in three adolescent girls in the United States is overweight, according to the association. The problem is particularly troubling because research shows becoming overweight as a child can lead to a lifetime struggle with obesity.

As part of the survey, the girls were asked once a year what they had eaten during the previous three days. The data were adjusted to compensate for factors such as differences in physical activity among the girls and normal increases in body fat during adolescence.

A girl who reported eating breakfast on all three days had, on average, a body mass index 0.7 units lower than a girl who did not eat breakfast at all.

If the breakfast included cereal, the average was 1.65 units lower, the researchers found.

Breakfast consumption dropped as the girls aged, the researchers found, and those who did not eat breakfast tended to eat higher fat foods later in the day.

Her company Paula Deen Enterprises generates total annual revenue of nearly $100 million, according to Burt Flickinger III, president of retail consultancy Strategic Resource Group

SAVANNAH, 온라인카지노 Ga. Paula Deen announced Thursday that she has cut business ties with the agent who helped make her a Food Network star and launch a media and merchandising empire that has largely crumbled in the wake of her admission that she used racial slurs in the past.

Deen had worked with New York agent Barry Weiner for more than a decade. She has said he was instrumental in getting her show «Paula's Home Cooking» on the Food Network in 2002. She gave no reason for her parting with Weiner in a prepared statement.

«Paula Deen has separated from her agent,» Deen's spokeswoman, Elana Weiss, said in an email Thursday. «She and her family thank him for the tireless effort and dedication over the many years.»
