Surprise Findings in Study of Identical Twins with Discordant BMIs

In a recent study by Dr Nordstrom, Sweden, found that obesity increased the risk of Diabetes, but did not increase the risk of Heart Disease or early death. Interesting study done, comparing identical twins, with one obese and one normal weight.
If you are not overweight, you still have risk for Heart Disease. Pay attention to those things that you can control. Do not smoke cigarettes. Keep moving. Walk or Exercise 30-40 minutes a day to start, then increase as you tolerate more.

CDC Press Releases

Deaths associated with hepatitis C reached an all-time high of 19,659 in 2014, according to new surveillance data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

A second CDC study, published online today in Clinical Infectious Diseases, shows that annual hepatitis C-related mortality in 2013 surpassed the total combined number of deaths from 60 other infectious diseases reported to CDC, including HIV, pneumococcal disease, and tuberculosis. Further, both studies use data from death certificates, which often underreport hepatitis C, so there likely were even more hepatitis C-related deaths than these numbers suggest.
