Calling Obesity A Disease Dooms Dieters
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:03:00 +0100 | Forbes.com Healthcare News
In June of 2013, the American Medical Association officially recognized obesity as a disease. The organization had its reasons. For starters, obesity leads to heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, early-onset degenerative arthritis…and just about every other illness on the planet. In addition, people with obesity face a very difficult time overcoming their condition: Short of highly invasive stomach procedures, very few treatments succeed in helping people lose weight and maintain that weight loss. Finally, the organization may have been motivated by the desire to reduce stigma surrounding obesity; by labeling obesity as a disease, it hoped to signal that people with obesity cannot be wholly blamed for their affliction.

A birth cohort analysis of the incidence of adenocarcinoma of the uterine cervix in the USA
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 08:09:18 +0100 | European Journal of Cancer Prevention
We investigated the incidence trends for adenocarcinoma (AC) of the cervix among individuals belonging to the 20–44-year age group in the USA and compared the observed birth cohort incidence patterns with the changing patterns of exposure to potential risk factors associated with AC of the cervix, such as infection with human papillomavirus, use of diethylstilbestrol (DES), obesity, and use of oral contraceptives. Using data from the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results program for 1973–2010, we conducted age–period–cohort modeling to evaluate birth cohort patterns on incidence trends of AC of the cervix over time. The increase in the incidence of AC of the cervix started among those born around the mid 1940s and accelerated up until around the ...
(144) Chronic pain and prescription opioid use in rural bariatric surgery patients
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 06:11:01 +0100 | The Journal of Pain
An estimated 100 million Americans experience chronic pain. Obesity is a risk factor for chronic pain and is also a major contributor to morbidity. Previous research has shown that for every point increase in BMI, there is an associated increase in the number of pain origins reported by patients. These pain origins are not limited to lower limb pain, but all types of pain measured. Bariatric surgery and the weight loss associated with the surgery have been associated with reductions in pain severity and disability, particularly knee and back pain. (Source: The Journal of Pain)
(238) Estimates of national healthcare expenditures associated with pediatric chronic pain
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 06:08:39 +0100 | The Journal of Pain
Pediatric chronic pain, with estimated prevalence rates of 15-25%, is increasingly being recognized as a major cause of morbidity in children, and data are emerging on the associated economic costs to families. However associated national healthcare expenditures are unknown. The primary objective of this study was to assess the impact of pediatric chronic pain on national healthcare expenditures in comparison to healthcare expenditures for other common childhood conditions including asthma, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and obesity.

(271) Behavioral and physiological effects of poor diet in mice
Fri, 27 Mar 2015 06:07:55 +0100 | The Journal of Pain
Obesity rates in the United States are climbing rapidly, and obesity is often comorbid with chronic pain. In many instances, obesity is a result of poor diet choices. Therefore, we utilized a cafeteria diet (CAF) and a total western diet (TWD) in separate experiments to investigate the functional and physiological consequences of poor diet in mice. The CAF was used to model human-like nutrient intake from junk foods. During ten weeks on the CAF, the mice had elevated mechanical and thermal thresholds when compared to regular diet-fed controls.
