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.

U.S. swimming pools ban long breath-holding after deaths
29 May 2015 at 4:06am
By Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. Navy SEAL hopeful and his friend, an off-duty lifeguard, were barreling through underwater drills in a pool just 3.5 feet (1 meter) deep. This summer, nearly four years after those deaths in a Staten Island pool raised alarms about a little known hazard called shallow-water blackout or hypoxic blackout, New York City is putting up warning signs at all public pools prohibiting prolonged breath holding. It is part of a movement to raise awareness of the peril that has killed accomplished swimmers and to stop it by banning lengthy breath holding in the nation's estimated 300,000 public pools.

29 May 2015 at 4:00am

Hawaii isn't just a nice state for a vacation. It may also be the healthiest state in which to live, at least according to one metric: Only 19 percent of Hawaiian residents suffer from obesity.

29 May 2015 at 3:15am
By Nita Bhalla NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Hundreds of deaths caused by an extreme heat wave in India could have been prevented if authorities followed the example set by Ahmedabad which introduced measures such as cooling spaces to protect citizens from the rising mercury, climate experts said.

South Korean becomes China's first confirmed MERS case
29 May 2015 at 2:50am
By Sui-Lee Wee and Nicole LI BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - China said on Friday a South Korean man had tested positive for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS), China's first confirmed case, but that it had not found any symptoms in the 38 people who had close contact with him. Health authorities in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong said it was likely the disease would spread as the patient had taken a bus, crossed a busy border checkpoint and stayed in a hotel before being taken to hospital. "As we have said before, the possibility of MERS transferring into Guangdong is very high," He Jianfeng, director for the Guangdong Provincial Center for Disease Control, told reporters.


MERS infects 10 in South Korea but no virus mutation: WHO
29 May 2015 at 2:38am

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Ten people in South Korea are confirmed as having the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) virus, transmitted by a traveler, but there has been no sustained human-to-human spread, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday. The United Nations health agency said it was not recommending screening of passengers or that travel or trade restrictions be imposed on South Korea due to the outbreak. All 10 people in South Korea are in hospital or self-quarantine, he said, including the traveler, who infected relatives and health care workers.

29 May 2015 at 1:57am
Radioactive material leaked from a medical shipment on Friday at Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport, Indian government and airport officials said, adding that the incident had been contained and there was no risk to passengers. The leak was found at the airport's cargo-handling complex in a consignment of sodium iodide 131 - a radioactive liquid used in so-called nuclear medicine - that had been on board an inbound Turkish Airlines passenger flight. "This area is far away from any of the passenger terminals and there is absolutely no risk of exposure to any passengers," Delhi International Airport Ltd, the airport's operator, said in a statement.


Scientists restore lost memory in mice, shedding light on amnesia
29 May 2015 at 1:01am

Researchers have gained new understanding on the workings of amnesia through research that used light to revive lost memories in mice, a study reported. Amnesia remains a controversial subject in the field of neuroscience, with some researchers arguing that it occurs when cells are damaged and memory cannot be stored, while others believe that the memories are simply blocked and cannot be recalled. "The majority of researchers have favored the storage theory, but we have shown in this paper that this majority theory is probably wrong," researcher Susumu Tonegawa of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology said.

Ugandan woman's agony as granddaughter 'sold' to Americans
29 May 2015 at 12:40am

By Katy Migiro and Tom Esslemont KAMPALA/LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The first time Jaja, a Ugandan woman, saw her one-year-old granddaughter, she was in the arms of an American man who she was told had "bought" the child. The toddler was sitting with the man and his wife, eating biscuits and drinking juice, as they sought legal guardianship over her in Uganda's High Court. In Uganda, foreigners can secure legal guardianship in a matter of weeks, sometimes before the child's birth parents realise what has happened.



Fight against Boko Haram requires regional might: UN
29 May 2015 at 12:08am

By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - Nigerian President-elect Muhammadu Buhari's promised campaign to defeat Boko Haram could drive more militants over the country's borders, raising the need for cooperation between governments across the region, senior U.N. officials said on Thursday. Speaking on the eve of the former army general's inauguration, they voiced hope that the new Abuja government would crush the Islamist militants accused of using women and children as sexual slaves and suicide bombers "There is this concern that success inside northeast Nigeria spells trouble for Niger, Cameroon, and even potentially Chad. Thousands have been killed in Boko Haram's six-year-old insurgency in Africa's biggest oil producer.


Assisted suicide bill advances in California legislature
29 May 2015 at 12:03am
By Sharon Bernstein SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Reuters) - California lawmakers on Thursday revived a bill that would allow physician-assisted suicide in the most populous U.S. state, after a renewal of debate on end-of-life issues prompted by the death of 29-year-old Brittany Maynard last year. It was approved by the state Senate appropriations committee days after the powerful California Medical Association dropped its opposition. Another co-author, Democratic state Senator Bill Monning, said the bill was inspired by the death of Maynard, who moved to Oregon from California so that she could commit suicide under that state's aid-in-dying law.

18 labs may have received live anthrax samples: US officials
28 May 2015 at 6:29pm

A total of 18 laboratories may have accidentally received live samples of anthrax shipped out by the American military, US authorities said. The 17 other laboratories, including one at the US Osan Air Force Base in South Korea, received samples from the same batch and are therefore likely to also be live, the Pentagon and the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said. The samples "are being carefully transferred to the CDC" in Atlanta, Jason McDonald, a spokesman for the agency, told AFP.
