Orlando Plastic Surgery Center Launches Orlando Weight Loss Program

(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 26, 2012 ) Orlando, FL -- Shockingly, a total of 68.3% of the U.S. adult population over the age of 20 has significant issues with weight! According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 33.9% of all U.S. adults over the age of 20 are obese, while 34.4% are overweight!

Also, in 2010, usage of fat tissue fillers rose 14% compared to 2009 (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).

Recognizing these startling facts, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center has launched its new Orlando Weight Loss Program.

But, Orlando Plastic Surgery Center does not advocate for individuals to lose as much weight as possible just to look good. Rather, it encourages individuals to lose weight at a healthy pace.

The Orlando Weight Loss Program helps individuals by creating a weight loss plan customized specifically to their unique needs, medically supervises the entire process, and helps individuals look and feel their best from the inside out. And best of all, this is done in a healthy and medically safe way.

“They trust our expertise and opinions, and we take that very seriously as cosmetic and plastic surgery professionals,” said lead surgeon and owner Dr. George Pope.

Orlando Plastic Surgery Center continues to demonstrate its commitment to helping people look and feel their best. It has already helped many patients improve their satisfaction with their lives. Adding a monitored and medically safe weight loss program to its repertoire of services is just one more way it is looking to help the general public.

27 Jul 2016 at 9:19am

By Cris Chinaka HARARE (Reuters) - President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe on Wednesday dismissed demands by once stalwart war veteran supporters to quit, saying he was in power by popular vote and accusing critics of plotting his ouster with longtime Western opponents. The 92-year-old Mugabe, the only president Zimbabwe has had in 36 years of independence, was addressing thousands of Zimbabweans who rallied to support him, a few days after veterans called him a corrupt dictator. "As long as the party says continue, I continue...If I still have the energy, I still have the life, the blessings of God, I will continue," Mugabe said in a 50-minute address.

27 Jul 2016 at 8:24am

(Reuters) - The Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral two years ago, raising hundreds of millions of dollars, has helped identify a new gene behind the neurodegenerative disease ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease, researchers say. The challenge involved people pouring ice-cold water over their heads, posting video on social media, and donating funds for research on the condition, whose sufferers include British physicist Stephen Hawking. Celebrities including Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, Ellen DeGeneres, Benedict Cumberbatch and former U.S. President George W. Bush were among millions of people who took part in 2014, attracting more than 400 million views on social media.

27 Jul 2016 at 8:08am
By Julie Steenhuysen CHICAGO (Reuters) - TauRx Pharmaceuticals' experimental Alzheimer's drug LMTX failed to improve cognitive and functional skills in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease, a large, late-stage study showed. Claude Wischik, co-founder of Singapore-based TauRx and a professor of geriatric psychiatry at Aberdeen University, said the drug reduced the rate of decline in cognitive and functional skills by 85 percent in that so-called "monotherapy" group. While the overall study involved 891 elderly subjects, only 15 percent, or some 136 people, were not taking standard Alzheimer's drugs.

From herdsmen to central bankers, southern Africa counts drought cost
27 Jul 2016 at 6:38am

By Ed Stoddard SEKOMA, Botswana (Reuters) - Molefi Ramantele, a small-scale livestock farmer who ekes out a living in Botswana's arid scrubland, lost a third of his cattle in the drought that has scorched southern Africa. Farmers, game reserves and central bankers across southern Africa are among those set to count the cost for years to come of the drought that wiped out livestock, pushed up food prices and caused power shortages and protests. The 2015/2016 El Nino weather system, the Pacific Ocean phenomenon associated with droughts, storms and floods, baked southern Africa before ending in May. This coincided with a slump in commodity prices that pressured African exporters' budgets, eroded currencies and deepened economic misery as well as challenging central bankers faced with higher prices and slow economic growth.

GlaxoSmithKline invests $360 million in UK despite Brexit
27 Jul 2016 at 6:21am

GlaxoSmithKline plans 275 million pounds ($361 million) of new investments at three drug manufacturing sites in Britain, signaling its confidence in the country despite last month's vote to leave the European Union. The decision came as Britain's biggest drugmaker reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Wednesday, buoyed by new drug sales and currency gains from a falling pound, which it said could pump up full-year results by 19 percent. GSK, which had argued against Brexit before the referendum, said the UK remained an attractive place for making medicines, thanks to a skilled workforce and relatively low tax rates.
