Also called adjustment insomnia, short-term insomnia disorder is extremely common, especially in today’s busy, high-stress culture. Almost everyone experiences difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep for a night or two at some point in their lives. This can be due to stress, excitement, anticipation, pain, illness, changes in time zones or altitude, reactions to medications, changes in sleep schedules, light, noise, or many other intrinsic or extrinsic factors. Adjustment insomnia is also known as acute insomnia, and was formerly known as transient insomnia or short-term insomnia. Adjustment insomnia is insomnia associated with a specific stressor. These stressors can be events in our everyday lives such as stress from work, financial hardship, or marital stress. They can also be atypical events such as the death of a loved one or a natural disaster. Although adjustment insomnia is extremely common, it also typically corrects itself when the stressor is corrected. If a college student experiences adjustment insomnia due to stress from upcoming final exams, for example, the insomnia will likely be corrected when finals are over.

Shotter is most notable for founding the London Medical Group in the mid-1960s. This was a forum for the discussion of the ethical issues of medicine and grew out of his work with the Student Christian Movement, the Diocese of London and the London Medical Deaneries. This group was widely exported to other UK medical schools. The group, its activities and members presaged the Society for the Study of Medical Ethics, later the Institute of Medical Ethics, which set up the Journal of Medical Ethics. Shotter continues to be involved with the IME. Despite being involved with the LMG and its descendant organisations for over four decades he never lectured on the any particular medical ethical topic. He only ever chaired two meetings of the LMG, once because of the last-minute cancellation of the arranged chair.

The risk for developing obesity is influenced by our lifestyle as well as our genes. In a new study from Uppsala University, researchers show that our genetic risk for obesity is not static, but is influenced by our lifestyle. In a current study, researchers have investigated if genetic effects are influenced by different lifestyle factors such as diet, smoking, socio-economic status, alcohol consumption and physical activity. The study builds on genetic and self-reported lifestyle information from 360,000 middle-aged people in the UK."The results of our study clearly show that the environment and the lifestyle interact with the genes," says Mathias Rask-Andersen, researcher at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, who led the study.For example, the effect of genetic factors was lower in the most physically active participants. Socio-economic status also influenced the genetic effects. The genetic risk for obesity was more pronounced in participants with lower socio-economic status than in participants with higher socio-economic status. The results suggest that we can influence our genetic risk by changing our lifestyle.

With advances in science and medicine, our population is living to ages that we have not seen before. This comes with a new set of problems and medical conditions that we need to focus on to ensure continued quality of life for our elderly citizens. Frailty is one of these age-associated conditions that can lead to health deficits and eventual mortality. Frailty is a geriatric syndrome characterized by elevated risk of declines of health and function. Elderly humans are more vulnerable to stressors and changes in conditions, and see adverse health effects more frequently than those who are younger. The prevalence of frailty increases with age, but there are changes people can make to delay or limit its effects. Early studies suggest that dietary interventions have a positive impact on people with frailty and that balanced nutrition can limit its effects on function. However, these studies had short term follow up and failed to account for a number of potentially confounding factors.

The convenience of staying connected at all times can be addictive, and it may also cause abnormal musculoskeletal wear and tear. While strong evidence links frequent texting to chronic neck pain, surgeons are left wondering what long term effects prolonged smart phone use may have on the spine. As noted in a 2015 observational study, the average person extends their neck while texting, positioning their cervical spine at an angle between 15 and 60 degrees (45 degrees on average). The weight of the human head puts an increasing amount of strain on the spine as the angle increases from 15 to 60 degrees, with the estimated pressure on the cervical spine weighing in at approximately 60 pounds at a flexed neck posture of 60 degrees. With frequent texting linked to neck pain, surgeons are particularly concerned about the risks to spine development posed by such harmful posture and hyper-extension of the neck in this universal age of smart phones, as younger people are using multiple devices more often each day. Clinical studies are necessary to quantify and examine any links between the forward flexed position of the neck while texting and cervical disk degeneration.

Doğru Cevap: "B" the concerns about the possible relations between texting and neck pain.
