First strict test shows why a junk-food diet packs on weight : Research Highlights
Trial in humans consistent with the idea that more processed food is worse for you because you eat more calories. > Harried humans around the world are embracing cheap, ultra-processed foods such as white bread, bacon and hash browns. But the first randomized controlled trial on the health effects of these foods shows that people offered such a diet ingest more calories — and pack on more weight — than they do when presented with more wholesome meals.

Management of obesity in the psychiatrist's office
> First, obesity is a behavioral problem that involves eating too much and moving too little. The most robust evidence for effective management of obesity is for behavioral interventions, usually referred to as lifestyle interventions. These are typically based on principles of cognitive behavioral therapy and social cognitive change. Psychiatrists are experts of behavioral change and are equipped with the tools to employ against this disease.

Second, it has become abundantly clear that psychiatric medications, especially antipsychotics, play an important role in the increased rates of obesity among patients with SMI 3. While it is preferable to prevent the excess weight gain due to psychotropic medications, this is not always possible. Many patients will already be overweight or obese at the initial visit to a psychiatrist. Management of overweight and obesity is therefore as much a part of psychiatrists' duty as the management of other medication side effects, ranging from movement disorders to impaired sexual function. Obesity is also associated with increased rates of depression, decreased quality of life, and increased stigma in this population. Obesity is a calamity that needs to be managed in the psychiatrist's office.

Tory councils join demand for tax increases to fund social care services - https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/jul/01/tory-councils-call-tax-to-fund-social-care - An astonishing nine in every 10 local authorities say that taxation must now be part of the solution in securing the viability of adult social care, according to a comprehensive survey of council leaders and senior figures responsible for care.

'Tax and regulate more to improve health' - BBC News
The independent analysis, produced for the BBC, said the success of the smoking ban and sugary drinks tax should embolden ministers.

The experts also said the fear of the "nanny state" tag was unfounded as polling suggested the public have an appetite for tough action.

It comes after ministers in England unveiled new plans for child obesity.
They pointed out that seven in 10 adults do not meet the recommended guidelines in relation to diet, physical activity, drinking and smoking.

But despite this, polling carried out for the report by Ipsos MORI found that 85% of people believe they have a "great deal of responsibility" for keeping healthy.

The survey of more than 2,000 people in the UK also showed a significant degree of support for taxes and regulation.

First of all, pointing to the low unemployment rate coinciding with a large trade deficit as evidence there is no link between unemployment and a trade deficit makes as much sense as pointing to a very underweight person suffering from the late stage cancer as an argument against any link between being seriously overweight and bad health.

Chips: Forscher ergründen Suchtgefahr - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Essen = Droge

Manche Forscher vergleichen die Wirkung von Essen auf das Gehirn mit der von Drogen, wobei der Botenstoff Dopamin eine große Rolle spielt. Sie fürchten auch beim Essen eine Art Teufelskreis: Man braucht immer mehr von einer bestimmten Substanz, um den gleichen euphorischen Zustand, das gleiche Belohnungsgefühl, zu bekommen - man wird süchtig danach.
