Type 2 Diabetes – Is Binge Eating Destroying Your Health?

To say binge eating is unhealthy would be an understatement. Binge eating is an eating disorder separate from anorexia or bulimia and accounts for a significant proportion of severely overweight people who repeatedly try to lose weight but fail. Regrettably, however, it's also typical behavior for many adults in different societies today. On a community level, binge eating is thought of as a shame. On an individual level, binge eating is destructive.

Theoretically, if you wanted to degrade your health in the fastest possible manner, all you would have to do is binge eat on a daily basis. Combine hours of overeating with being sedentary, and you have a combination guaranteed to leave you in bad health. Obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and atherosclerosis are common conditions that develop from destructive eating habits and often lead to deadly complications like heart disease and stroke.

ALS causing gene discovered
Using a new sequencing method, researchers have discovered a gene that appears to cause some instances of familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
A team of researchers led by scientists from Johns Hopkins and the National Institutes of Health Using make the discovery, which may lead to novel ways to treat the more common form of this fatal neurodegenerative disease.
Researchers don’t know exactly what causes ALS, which destroys the motor neurons that control the movement of all the body’s muscles, including those that control breathing.

David & Goliath (Explored)

Just have to take care about copyright things now. I am the author of the image, but the copyright belongs to the media workshop I am working for 😉

These two trees sitting on top of a small hill I saw the first time back in last summer and was sure they will suit very well into a winter scenery. Winter hit us very late but then very hard with temps below -15C this year after a too warm start in january. I shoot these trees from several places, but this images seems to be the best from my view.
