Role Of The Sugar Association In Causing Heart Diseases

So far, we have only heard about the cholesterol and fat in increasing the incidence of cardiovascular diseases. However, the factual truth has been hidden with a motive. The sugar industry has financed the professors of the Harvard University to manipulate the original research results. As per the reports, the results of clinical trials have been skewed up for various benefits. Several research scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, were funded by the massive sugar industries to keep away the association of sweeteners with different cardiac problems. A brighter and bigger focus was intentionally offered to fats and its byproducts.

There is substantial evidence to support the link between the Harvard School of Public Health and the Sugar Research Foundation. During 1954, Henry Hass, the president of the Sugar Research Foundation spoke about the importance of adopting a low-fat diet to prevent heart diseases. He wanted the American Society of Sugar Beet Technologists to capitalize on opportunities to promote the growth of sugar processing industries. This approach allowed the sugar businesses to enhance their market share as well as scaled their growth tremendously. The transparency in research studies should be amplified to overrule such issues. It is imperative to emphasize on unbiased and quality research for valid claims.

Understanding The Need And Effectiveness Of Flossing

Flossing has so far been insisted by the federal government as well as the dentists to prevent gum disease and cavities. It was also claimed to protect the teeth. But, now with the recent guidelines provided by the Departments of Agriculture, Health and Human Services things seem to differ. In the latest press release, the American Academy of Periodontology have expressed the inadequacy of flossing to restore gum health. There was less conformational evidence to support. As per the reports, there were no significant research studies to claim that flossing prevents periodontal disease or cavities. And, the open secret was finally let out.

Previously in a randomized study that was conducted during 2011, there were a few weak pieces of evidence. Flossing regularly for six months reduced the incidence of plaque formation. However, they could not bring out trustworthy clinical studies to support the efficacy of flossing. It did not prevent the formation of cavities. Professor Dr. Philippe Hujoel, from the department of oral health sciences, University of Washington stated that the benefits of flossing are still not proven substantially. More research is required to link flossing with the prevention of dental decay. However, the American Dental Association states that brushing and flossing are necessary to protect your gums and teeth.

There are a few mediocre proofs that suggest flossing can reduce gingivitis. But, the quality of the research studies was found to be low. Flossing can only reverse gum problems in the initial stages. The experts say that it cannot prevent the bone loss in the case of periodontal disease. Inflammation in the gum progresses to other dental diseases despite flossing. Dr. Wayne Aldredge, who leads the American Academy of Periodontology says that flossing cannot prevent the periodontal disease. It is a slow and deceptive tooth problem which requires five to ten years for development. Thus, more accurate studies are needed to support the benefits of flossing.

Sports Court Stick On To The Ban

In the latest Rio Olympics, the sports court has put a ban on Russia’s track asking to discipline the Russian teams. The Association of Athletics Federations had barred Russia’s team from participating at the summer games which is going to be held in Rio next month the reason being that of a cheating plot which the investigators found by the forensic evidence and with the help of computer records.

When Russia made an appeal, the sports court said that the penalty given was legally sound. With only two weeks left for the opening ceremony in Rio, the Olympic committee had made the decision of taking measures to sports federation. The appeal court considered the nature of the case and because of this the verdict was unanimous. The court said that the full decision would be issued shortly.

The sports minister of Russia said that the decision made by the court had affected honest athletes and clean athletes. Because of this ban, the council invited the other Russian athletes to compete individually and gave the option to be in part to protect themselves against court challenges. So far, two of the Russian athletes have given clear chit to compete in Rio. The athletes are a long jumper and a runner; both of them live in the United States. The federation said the other athletes could not compete in Rio.

Russia won 8 gold medals in the 2012 summer Olympics. A total of 18 medals were won by Russia in the 2012 summer Olympics. If the ban remains, it will be difficult for the Russian athletes even to dream about a medal. The federation does not have much experience in seeking for justice in doping cases. Major people have been flying to Rio and Russia to request to uplift the ban on the athletes.
