Acne Diet The Western Diet And Acne

Click Here To Know More About:

Submitted by: Darren W.

The Western Diet is typically composed of high-glycemic foods, which have indicated in several studies conducted, to cause acne breakouts. Such foods that have high glycemic index (GI) include refined sugar and starchy foods such as cereals, grains, milk, breads, and processed foods.

According to some studies, the increase in the level of insulin hormone and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) in the human body system, results to the rise of testosterone level in males. Consequently, as testosterone directly affects the secretion of sebaceous glands, increased testosterone brings about an excessive sebum production. The sebum or oil produced inside the body may clog the pores of the skin, creating a bacteria-friendly environment and thus triggering acne outbreaks. Also, the previously mentioned hormones cause the overproduction of skin cells, further aggravating the clogging of the pores and nourishing the acne-causing bacteria.

A certain study conducted had observed that participants, who only ate natural foods rather than the highly-refined foods common in a Western diet, showed minor, or no pimple problems at all.

Furthermore, they conducted the same study on immigrants on westernized locations. Surprisingly, these persons, who used to consume only natural foods and did not ever experienced acne before, have developed the disease when they moved to their current western residence and have adapted the western diet that is composed of highly refined foods.

Western Diet High Fat Foods

This diet also consists of high fat foods. Large amounts of fat inside the body can lead to over secretion of the sebaceous glands. Moreover, the fatty content in Western foods is composed primarily of sebum. Also, high fat foods can actually lead to poor blood circulation in the body, making the person more prone to acquiring acne.

Furthermore, incorporating the Western diet in young teenagers causes a sudden increase in the sex hormones, causing an even higher occurrence of acne.

Studies have also shown that too much caffeine can also increase the stress hormone levels inside the body. The large amounts of these stress hormones can further trigger the development of acne, or worsen existing acne conditions. The Western diet typically includes high-caffeine beverages, such as tea, soda, and coffee.

Other studies have also presented the relevance of the significant amounts of dairy products and red meats in the Western diet to the incidence of acne problems. The large content of protein in this diet increases the levels of IGF-1, which, as mentioned earlier, can also increase the level of testosterone, indirectly over stimulating the production of sebum, as well.

Studies further show that dietary changes concentrating on low glycemic carbohydrates, such as fruits and vegetables, have positive endocrine effects that are therapeutically effective in treating acne. Such beneficial endocrine changes maintain the normal and healthy growth of the cells of the skin, as well as promote normal production of sebum.

Although there is actually no firm evidence on the relationship of certain foods in the Western diet and the occurrence of acne, it is still best to control the amounts (neither too little nor too much) of whatever kinds of food that we take.

Quad crash kills fourteen year-old in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland

Quad crash kills fourteen year-old in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland

Saturday, November 21, 2009

A 14-year-old boy has been killed in an accident involving a quad bike in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. The boy has been identified as Paddy McErlean, who crashed near his house in the town of Maghera.

What is believed to have happened is that Paddy was travelling on an all-terrain vehicle with a 16-year-old boy along a rural road at around 2200 GMT on Thursday when the vehicle smashed into a post, the boys were then thrown from the road. The 16-year-old boy is critically injured and as of yet has not been identified.

Ann Scott, who is the head teacher in St. Patrick’s College, which is the high school that Paddy attended, said: “This tragic accident really has brought a profound sense of loss to the school. The loss of Paddy, who was only 14, has just shocked everybody at the college. He really contributed a lot to the school, he was full of life, he was such a lovely young lad, very popular with the staff and pupils and we will really miss him so terribly.”

Hawaii legislature reaches agreement to suspend gasoline price cap

Hawaii legislature reaches agreement to suspend gasoline price cap

April 17, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Sunday, April 30, 2006

Conference committee negotiators in the Hawaii state legislature have reached agreement on a bill that will suspend Hawaii’s controversial gasoline price control law, commonly known as the “gas cap.”

Under the proposed bill created by the conference committee, the current gas cap law would be immediately suspended for an indefinite period. The cap price would continue to be calculated, but the governor would have sole discretion to reinstate the price cap. The bill would also call for increased reporting of profits by oil companies.

The bill draft still needs majority approval by both houses (which appears likely), and signature by Governor Linda Lingle.

The current law uses wholesale gasoline prices from three Mainland markets to set the maximum price that oil companies can charge for gasoline. Retailers are free to charge whatever they wish.

The law was proposed by the Democratic-controlled legislature during a time when oil company profits in Hawaii compared with the Mainland came under intense scrutiny. Republicans, including Lingle, opposed the bill.

Since the law went into effect in September 2005, price fluctuations due to the disruption of gasoline supply in the wake of Hurrican Katrina have resulted in gas prices of more than $3.00 a gallon in Honolulu, with significantly higher prices on the Neighbor Islands. Currently prices of unleaded gasoline in Honolulu range from $3.00 to $3.42 per gallon, the highest in the nation.

During the current legislative session which expires Thursday, the House of Representatives (the lower house) passed a version calling for outright repeal of the law, while the Senate (the upper house) called for modification of the formula used to calculate the cap.

However, in recent weeks, the main proponent of the gasoline price cap law, Senator Ron Menor (D-Mililani), softened his position, allowing for an indefinite suspension of the gas cap. Negotiations between the House and Senate had reached an impasse over the calculation of the cap level. Senate negotiators pushed for a formula that would have set cap levels about 15 to 20 cents lower than the current formula. The leadership of the legislature intervened as the deadline for conference committee reports loomed.

Hawaii is the only state in the United States to institute price controls on gasoline in recent years.

Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan engaged

This article features in a News Brief from Audio Wikinews:

Legendary Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan has confirmed that his son Abhishek and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai were engaged last evening at a private ceremony at the Bachchans’ residence in Mumbai.

It is believed that the younger Bachchan proposed to his bride-to-be in New York, soon after the Toronto premiere of his new movie Guru. The media had been following the romance between the two closely for some time past, but this is the first time they have come out in the open about their relationship. Rumours that the couple were planning to spread the know began to spread in November last year, when they visited the Sankat Mochan Temple together, with some even saying that they had already been married even earlier at the Meenakshi temple in Madurai

According to one daily, the wedding will take place either on February 19 or March 7 at the Hyatt Mumbai. “The children have decided. We are very happy and thought we should go ahead with the ‘roka’ ceremony. It was held in the evening.”, Amitabh Bachchan said of the ceremony, which was attended by the family’s close friends, including Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh, Aishwarya’s parents, and industrialist Anil Ambani and the latter’s wife Tina Ambani. The couple have now flown to Ujjain to take a holy dip in the Ganga.

A 12 Year Old Boy’s Bedroom Showcases Collections

By Susan Morrell

Children love to collect things, and a twelve year old boy is right in the prime of collecting his little treasures. Designing a bedroom for him requires a lot of storage to house his collections, and you may want to incorporate display areas in the room. As a matter of fact you may be able to design his whole room around his collections and really end up with the perfect bedroom design. Make the distinction between his collections that are mostly for viewing and the ones that he really plays with, and plan their storage accordingly. Storage should always be easy to access if you want your child to actually use it.

Toys for Play

Most boys have any number of cars, soldiers and action figures. You could store or display them on open shelves or use a display cabinet. If your child still plays with the collection, then open shelves is a better choice. When the collection is mostly to admire, then the glass door display case would be a good selection.

Collectibles

Boys also love trading cards. Whether they have wizards or baseball heroes, card collections can get to be quite extensive. Using a photo box or a card collector’s book to display this type of collection makes the most sense. Of course you could always mount and frame favorite cards so that they can be displayed on the child’s bedroom wall. You can have fun doing this. For example if you cut a piece of green poster board to mount behind a baseball card. You can add a brown baseball diamond, and then you can mount the card on the ‘field’ in the position that the player normally plays. You can also rotate which baseball cards are displayed by using a photo cube or a photo box with a display front.

Technology

Most children these days have an electronics collection, which may include video games, DVDs, CDs, and then they may also have favorite books and magazines. Using magazine bins on bookshelves is a great way to store these items. You can also use plastic shoe bins for DVD and CD storage.

Shelves

If your child has a lot of collectibles, you can build a display shelf around the top of the wall and use this space to display model airplanes, car collections, autographed sports paraphernalia, and other small collectibles. A high shelf like this is a perfect way to showcase delicate collectibles that you do not want handled.

Pictures

You can also use some of his collections to decorate his room. If he has a lot of photos, you could frame and hang them in a large grouping on a wall to make a really interesting addition to his room. You could use one large frame and build a collage of his favorite photos. You could also use the clear plastic frames, and literally cover a wall with them. It is easy to swap out one photo for another, and it makes a really fun wall display.

Tim Curry, TV premiere screenings, cosplay feature at Fan Expo Canada

Tim Curry, TV premiere screenings, cosplay feature at Fan Expo Canada

April 16, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Wednesday, September 6, 2017

Toronto pop culture convention Fan Expo Canada has wrapped for another year. It ran from Thursday to Sunday. Major panels included Tim Curry and the cast of Rocky Horror Picture Show, Beauty and the Beast voices Robby Benson and Paige O’Hara, actors Kathleen Turner, Richard Dreyfuss, Anthony Daniels, Felicia Day, and child leads from Stranger Things. Canadian television channel Space hosted a Star Trek: Discovery panel with seven lead cast members. On the heels of sister event Toronto Comic Con’s Degrassi reunion event, the lineup included a twentieth anniversary panel with the stars of another Canadian high school television series, Student Bodies.

Heading into its fourth and final season, attendees got a chance to see the season opener of Star Wars: Rebels on Saturday, followed by a panel. The event has had a continuing relationship with the series, screening other episodes previously. The second season premiere of the sci-fi series Travelers was accompanied by a panel including Eric McCormack. Canadian true-crime drama Bad Blood had its world premiere. Other debuts included broadcaster City with the Canadian premiere of Ghosted, with Craig Robinson in attendance, Teletoon with the Canadian premiere of Hotel Transylvania: The Series, and YTV with the new animated series Mysticons.

Anime fans could watch episodes of their favourite shows, including AKB0048, Otaku No Video, Hana Yamata, My Hero Academia, Fairy Tail, and Penguindrum.

The book Star Wars Made Easy, targeted to non-fans to get up to speed on the fictional universe’s various facts and figures, was ironically launched by DK Canada for a room of fans of the franchise. Author Christian Blauvelt answered questions from the audience on topics like his opinion on Midiclorians — he understands fan contention, but suggested that science and religion can co-exist, like in the real world — quizzed the audience on trivia, and signed copies of his book.

Some panels were quite ahead of the curve: one on Star Wars costume and prop building discussed building Porgs figures, despite the film The Last Jedi not being released to theatres yet.

York Regional Police were at the event with United and Unity, two brightly lit characters of their own creation. The force received funding in 2014 from the Provincial Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy to create a short film featuring the character United, receiving positive recognition locally. “Our United superhero program is part of our on-going efforts to connect with our community and show police in a different light,” YRP Constable Andy Pattenden told Wikinews. He explains that the officers who developed the project have a background in film-making, and “serve as an opportunity for us to start a conversation with youth and connect with them at a non-traditional level.”

Star Wars character Jabba the Hutt, a puppet in the 1983 film Return of the Jedi, was re-created by the 501st Legion as an animatronic. The 501st is a fan group that dresses like the series villains for charitable events, particularly those raising funds for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The new addition to their annual display commanded long lineups throughout the day, from con-goers looking to donate in exchange for a photo-op with the massive, slug-like alien.

As with most major conventions, cosplayers were numerous, ranging from simple outfits that wouldn’t raise an eyebrow if worn from day-to-day, to elaborately-created costumes and giant props. Outfits recognized by Wikinews’ reporter ranged from classic characters like the 1960s version of Batgirl and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, a character created by Walt Disney in 1927, before Mickey, to 2010s characters from creative works like Undertale, Disney Descendants, League of Legends, and Adventure Time. Few characters are too obscure, if they appeal to a fan: the female avatar of “hivemind” character Unity, from a single episode of Rick and Morty, was spotted. One woman “biting” another woman’s arm would be cause for concern most places, but at a pop culture convention, it simply means that “Lilo” is re-enacting a scene with “Mertle”, as seen in the film Lilo and Stitch.

Wikinews talked with Cheryl, the co-host of the weekly video series “Our Didnee Side”, who was dressed as Gadget Hackwrench, a mouse from the 1990s television series Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers. Speaking for both of the hosts, she said their passion for Disney has “exploded” since starting the YouTube channel, and that they are both “creators. We can’t seem to go a day without making something. We love doing Disney cosplay because it is like a beacon for other people in the fandom to come find us in a sea of other characters.” Conventions like Fan Expo Canada become “a great opportunity to meet like-minded Disney fans, and to possibly escape for the weekend from our ‘boring human’ lives.”

Adrianna Prosser, host of Toronto geek culture community website Geektropolis, spent part of the convention Fan Expo Canada 2017 as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. She told Wikinews that “geeking in Toronto is always such a joy, what with amazing cosplay and passionate fandoms coming together at Fan Expo!” She explained that the site tries to keep the feeling of the event going all year, featuring local creators and “geeky” fans, in an effort to bring the community closer together.

Party game Cards Against Humanity — intriguingly available under a non-commercial Creative Commons license — offered a “Free Apologies from An American” booth, where a representative offered regrets to the largely Canadian visitors. The booth’s curtains came into use at least once on Friday, closing when a Trump cosplayer reached the front of the line.

California judge jails Michael Jackson doctor

California judge jails Michael Jackson doctor

April 16, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor of the deceased singer Michael Jackson, has been given a four year prison sentence by a judge in the US city of Los Angeles, California, based on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, the maximum sentence he could receive for this offense. Steve Whitmore, a spokesperson for Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, told CBS News that Assembly Bill 109 would automatically halve the sentence to two years.

In November of this year, after a six week trial, a jury found Murray guilty of providing Jackson with an excessive amount of propofol, which caused his death in 2009. Judge Michael Pastor condemned Dr. Murray’s actions, calling his behavior a “continuous pattern of lies and deceit” and him a “danger to the community”, having committed a “horrific violation of trust”. Murray may also lose his medical license.

In the aftermath of the sentencing, Katherine Jackson, the mother of Michael Jackson, told KTLA: “Four years is not enough for someone’s life. It won’t bring him back but at least he got the maximum.” Jackson expressed thanks to the prosecutors and the judge, calling the latter “very, very fair”. Meanwhile, Jermaine Jackson, Michael Jackson’s brother, said “[o]ne hundred years is not enough”.

The defense had requested probation as Murray already faced “a lifetime sentence of self-punishment” and life-long reputation as “the man who killed Michael Jackson”. The judge refused to allow probation, saying it wasn’t justified by Murray’s actions.

Major snowstorm sweeps across Eastern US

Major snowstorm sweeps across Eastern US

April 15, 2018 · Filed under Uncategorized

Sunday, February 7, 2010

A major winter storm, which has been nicknamed by some as “Snowmageddon“, has pummeled parts of the U.S. Middle Atlantic region, dumping up to 19 inches (50 centimeters) of snow in some parts of the Washington area.

The National Weather Service is predicting as much as 24 to 30 inches (60 to 75 cm) of snow for the Washington, D.C. region by late Saturday. The storm brought high winds and low visibility, with winds gusting at 56 miles per hour (93 kilometers per hour) along the coast.

Life in the nation’s capital ground to a halt with the federal government and most businesses closing early on Friday and residents warned to stay off the snow-clogged roads. Hundreds of thousands of homes were without power as the wet snow weighed heavily on trees and power lines. Power lines in some areas have been brought down by the heavy snow.

The Weather Service issued blizzard and winter storm warnings for states reaching from Virginia and West Virginia up to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey.

Forecasters say this could be the largest recorded snowfall in Washington, rivaling a storm, known as the Knickerbocker Storm, that hit the city nearly 90 years ago, in January 1922. The largest amount of snowfall recorded so far has been in Elkridge, Maryland, reporting 32 inches (81 cm). The 1922 storm was named the Knickerbocker Storm for a theater where 98 people were killed when the building’s roof collapsed due to heavy snow. Snowfall in that storm measured 28 inches (71 cm).

Airlines and airports across the region have canceled flights and train service has been disrupted. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport suspended flight operations for the day while nearby Washington Dulles International Airport reported only a few international flights would be departing. Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport reported most flights were canceled. Flights at Philadelphia International Airport are also canceled.

Amtrak announced that it was canceling a number of trains between Washington and New York City, along with service from Washington to cities in the south. The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, known as the Metro locally, has suspended bus service and above ground train service. Underground subway service is running at 30 minute intervals.

As the storm approached, residents emptied supermarket shelves, stocking up on food and other supplies, especially due to Super Bowl XLIV which will be held on Sunday. Local area sports teams in Washington, D.C. will still play games as scheduled. People are urged to take the Metro to see the games and not use the roads. Impromptu snowball fights have also broken with some people going as far as to organize them over Facebook and Twitter.

The winter weather has already been blamed for hundreds of road accidents. So far two fatalities have been reported, a father and son who were rendering aid to a stranded motorist on Interstate 81 in Virginia, when an approaching tractor-trailer jackknifed and killed the pair.

This is the second major snowstorm to hit the region in less than two months.

Media round-up: April Fools’ Day 2008

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Many media outlets traditionally deliberately spread hoaxes on April Fools’ Day, including notable quality sources such as National Geographic and Science.

The popular British tabloid The Sun wrote that French President Nicolas Sarkozy is to undergo stretch surgery to make him taller than his wife, Italian artist and model Carla Bruni. The report claimed the 5 foot 5 inch leader would be made 5 inches taller in one year using a method by Israeli professor Ura Schmuck. The Sun noted that during his visit to Britain last week, Sarkozy had high-heel shoes while his wife wore a pair of flat pumps.

The Guardian on the other hand ran an article that suggested that Carla would head an initiative by Prime Minister Gordon Brown to bring more glamour, good taste and sophistication to the U.K. general population. This would involve collaboration with Marks & Spencer for high-street fashion and Jamie Oliver for meals and wine.

BBC News had real-looking footage of flying penguins fronted by documentary host Terry Jones, which were actually an advertisement for its new iPlayer.
