While we regularly post lengthy discussions on Obesity Panacea, there are many research updates, news stories, videos, etc. in the field of obesity, physical activity and nutrition that we come across on a daily basis that never grace the pages of the blog. Most of these mini-stories we share with our followers on Twitter, and we encourage those of you with active Twitter accounts to communicate with us there to get real-time updates of all the stuff we are discussing (Follow Peter and/or Follow Travis). For those of you who shy away from Twitter, enjoy below the best mini-stories that we came across during the prior week along with links to the original source so that you can follow the full story.
- A new report on what Canada needs to do to improve the physical and mental health of our children and youth (Health Canada)
- Dr Arya Sharma makes a passionate argument in defense of obesity treatment, rather than simply focusing on obesity prevention (Dr Sharma)
- Are Ontario’s bariatric surgery weight times legal? (Weighty Matters)
- Treadmills make you walk slower but work harder and feel worse (Sweat Science)
Have a great weekend!
