A businessmans weighty problem Personal sales up, personal weight down

Gary Pesticcio left his position as a sales person at Avanquest, a corporate company specialising in Business communications Management, to return a year later in January 2005, almost half the man he was. Gary went on to double his previous annual sales at Avanquest in his first year back, finishing 2006 with two very impressive achievements. Gary weighed 21 stone, a weight which had gradually crept up on him from years of living a salesperson’s life style ‘on the road’ – quick refuelling stops for the car and unhealthy pasties, crisps and burgers for him. Then there was the social side, Gary self-confessed that he could never stop at one beer, he had to have several, or more ………..

European Medical Research Still Ignoring Women

Newswise — Despite the European Union’s commitment to gender equality, women are still underrepresented on the committees that sanction research while the impact of gender differences continues to be ignored in clinical trials, suggests a study in the Journal of Medical Ethics. The authors assessed the composition and procedures of two major research ethics committees in European member states, including Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Austria and The Netherlands in 2003. 

Symptoms of Depression Linked to Early Stages of Artery Disease

Newswise — Depressive symptoms—especially physical signs, such as fatigue and loss of appetite—may be associated with thickening arteries, which may reflect an early sign of coronary artery disease, according to a report in the February issue of Archives of General Psychiatry, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. Considerable evidence suggests that depression, anger and other negative emotions are associated with the risk for coronary artery disease, which occurs when the vessels carrying blood to the heart become narrowed and thickened. However, most studies have assessed the risk for heart attack or sudden cardiac death, according to background information in the article. Because these events are later steps in the development of coronary artery disease, it is currently unclear whether depression, anxiety and other negative emotions play a role in early disease processes.  

Six countries ban imports of poultry from the UK as Bernard Matthews is fighting a rearguard action

Ireland, Russia, Hong Kong, South Africa, South Korea and Japan have banned UK poultry meat, live birds and hatching eggs. The Department of the Environment and Rural Affairs (Defra) has also said that it is in the process of confirming whether India has also imposed a ban. Other countries could also impose bans as the UK has now lost its "disease free" status under International Health Organisation rules. While the UK's regulators are advising the public that the risk of H5N1 being transmitted from poultry to humans was "extremely low", they can take heed of what happened last year in Europe, when a number of countries were affected by outbreaks. Due to a decline in consumption and exports due to the disease, some EU members were forced last year to stockpile supplies, leading to a glut in the market. About 2,600 turkeys had died last week before authorities closed off the Bernard Matthews’s site and began culling birds.
