Most people don’t realize that the basic techniques for performing cosmetic rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) originated from reconstructive plastic surgery.

Lefties Have More Vivid Recollections

TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct 21, 2001 (United Press International via COMTEX) — Researchers say when it comes to remembering vivid details of an event, left-handed people are more likely than right-handed people to have such memories. Researchers suspect such detailed memories — not just recollection of facts but the events associated with them — are more likely to be created in people with strong connections between the two halves of the brain. People who are left-handed, and their immediate relatives, tend to have more connections between the different hemispheres of the brain than do people who are right-handed. “I don’t think … Continue reading

Americans Ignore Importance of Food Portion Size

Most Americans believe the kind of food they eat is more important for managing weight than the amount of food they eat, according to a new survey. In the survey, a surprising 78 percent of respondents said that eating certain types of food while avoiding others was more central to their weight management efforts than eating less food. The survey was commissioned by the American Institute for Cancer Research, a private cancer charity. This finding troubles nutrition experts, who have long suspected that messages about “low-fat” eating may cause the public to lose sight of a more pressing concern: total … Continue reading

Strength Training Benefits More than Muscles

Regular weight training does more than just build better muscles, it builds a better, healthier body. Several new studies confirm the benefits of mild-to-moderate resistance training, which includes reduced blood pressure, lower LDL (‘bad’) cholesterol levels and higher HDL (‘good’) cholesterol levels, all of which improve cardiovascular health overall. Weight training is also believed to improve the way the body processes sugar, which could reduce the risk of developing diabetes. Another study examined the effect of weight training on osteoarthritis, a common condition among older adults that affects balance and increases the risk of falling.
