Belly Fat

Extra weight in older women is not in itself deadly, but the position where the fat is could be dangerous. A study carried out shows that women who are between 70 and 79 years old and are overweight did not reduce their years if the extra pounds were not piled up around the waist. However, at the same time, researchers have established that being underweight also contributes to a shorter lifespan.

Researchers say that if a toddler comes from a family that has a history of celiac disease, if it displays behavioral issues like aggression, sleeping trouble, anxiety and others, then it will be time for a celiac test.

Mothers of kids from families who had celiac disease reported seeing more negative psychological symptoms in their children than mothers who had kids who came from families without a history of celiac disease. This was in a study that was done on three to four year old kids to determine who was at higher risk of getting celiac disease.

A recent Canadian study has shown that mothers who take opioids prescriptions put their kids at risk of overdosing more than the mothers who don’t use them and instead opt for another class of self-prescribed painkillers. The papers explain the danger of keeping the opioids within the reach of the children. Such painkillers include oxycodone, codeine and methadone.

A co-author of the study Dr. David Juurlink who also heads Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center, Toronto says that the drugs are very common in most households in North America, to the extent that the users don’t consider how dangerous they are to their kids. They can store the drugs carelessly in areas where the children can find them with ease.
