    (CNN)Accepting your body as it is and stopping all the dieting may sound great, but would doing so hurt your health? s, pop culture and even doctors can talk about health and weight as if they are one and the same: smaller bodies are healthier, and larger bodies must be unhealthy. But neither health nor bodies are that simple and uniform, and health can vary from person to person said Jeanette Thompson-Wessen, a nutritionist in the United Kingdom whose approach doesn't focus on weight loss. Diet culture and disordered eatingEating disorders in men Dietitians are fighting diets on Tiktok What is diet culture? Set point theory may change your weight loss goals How to talk to kids about weight A higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with conditions like diabetes and heart disease, said Philipp Scherer, professor of internal medicine and director of the Touchstone Diabetes Center at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

    (CNN)CIA Director Bill Burns gave an unusually candid assessment this week, when he told attendees at the Aspen Institute's annual security confab that Russian President Vladimir Putin is "entirely too healthy." Burns was careful to qualify apparently tongue-in-cheek remarks, saying they didn't constitute "a formal intelligence judgment." But asked directly if Putin was unhealthy or unstable, he said: "There are lots of rumors about President Putin's health and as far as we can tell, he's entirely too healthy." So what are we to make of speculation about Putin's health? These rumors are nothing new.His body language, speech and gait have all been relentlessly scrutinized. And every time Putin disappears from public view for a few days — or even makes a slight misstep, such as he did recently after touching down in Tehran — it can set off a round of intense, tabloid-style speculation about his physical wellbeing.Read MoreThat's the nature of Putinism, a sort of postmodern dictatorship built around one man. The Kremlin has worked hard to create an aura around Putin as the country's sole problem-solver: He hosts...

Suzanne Somers believes that getting it on is key to leading a healthy lifestyle. “I do feel that a healthy person is a sexual person,” she told Page Six exclusively at Clive Davis’ 90th birthday bash Wednesday. “So many women say, ‘I’m over that,’ and I say, ‘It’s only because you don’t have the right triggers anymore.'” The “Three’s Company” alum chalks up women’s waning interest in sex to hormones and has written dozens of books on the subject. “I like to inspire all the women who read my books,” she explained. “I teach them about restoring hormones and nutrients, and you have to move every day, otherwise you lose it.

    Poor sleeping habits may not just leave a person tired during the day, it could also pose a danger to their health, a new study finds. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, found that people who sleep for less than four hours per night are at an increased risk of developing harmful fat lining their organs. Sleep deprivation can cause people who are relatively healthy to develop 'visceral' fat in the belly, which can eventually cause issues for the heart and other organs in the body over time. The research has grave implications, as more and more people are spending less time sleeping as a result of the prevalence of smart phones, longer working hours, and other factors.   Researchers from the Mayo Clinic found that people who are getting four hours of sleep or less every night are developing dangerous 'visceral' fat that can lead to a variety of heart and organ conditions 'Our findings show that shortened sleep, even in young, healthy and relatively lean subjects, is associated with an increase in calorie intake, a very small...
    A MUM has urged people to start "normalising" giving kids fast food dinners, insisting she's tired of constantly seeing perfectly healthy meals being served to toddlers. Sharing a video on TikTok of herself loading sausages, chips and baked beans onto her kid's plate, mum Kelsey Heward wrote: "Let’s normalise serving stuff like this to our toddlers, as well as the good stuff." 2Mum Kelsey Heward wants to normalise giving kids fast food dinner as well as healthier onesCredit: TikTok/@kelseyheward "Sometimes teas are like this," she captioned the clip.

    CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — To say it’s been a challenge to keep students in school through the pandemic would be an understatement. Despite the challenges, one local school has managed to do just that. CBS3 went inside LEAP Academy University Charter School for how they did it, as well as some of their special measures like their own full-service pediatric office.

    A MUM who has faced criticism for raising her baby as a vegan insists all that matters is that she's happy and healthy. Tasj Rose took to TikTok to share a video response to a comment from a follower who suggested child services needed to be called, writing over the clip: "So they can say what? That she's happy and healthy?" 2Tasj Rose took to TikTok to hit back at those criticising her for giving her baby a vegan dietCredit: @tasjrose/Tiktok She captioned the video: "She’s well cared for, happy and healthy and that’s all that matters."

    The second patient in the world to be 'naturally' cured of HIV without the help of drug or other treatments is speaking out about how grateful she is to be virus-free. The 30-year-old woman, whom researchers call the 'Esperanza Patient' after the city where she lives in Argentina, has been studied by a team in Buenos Aires and at the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT, and Harvard.  Researchers analyzed genetic material from over one billion cells in the patient's body and saw no evidence of HIV. They believe the woman is what is known as an 'elite controller' of the virus, a rare patient whose body is able to suppress the virus and shows no signs of infection. 'I enjoy being healthy,' she told NBC News in Spanish over email on the condition of anonymity. 'I have a healthy family. I don't have to medicate, and I live as though nothing has happened. This already is a privilege.'  Studies suggest that about 0.5 percent of HIV-infected people have uniquely strong immune responses to the virus, out of about...

    Earlier in August, Rogan railed against vaccine passports, arguing that coercing people to get vaccinated would bring the United States "one step closer to a dictatorship." "That's what's going to happen with the vaccine passport," he said. "That's what's going to happen if they close borders. You can't enter New York City unless you have your papers. You can't go here unless you have that. You can't get on a plane unless you do what I say," Rogan said on his podcast, predicting that the government is "not going to give that power up." His comments were heavily criticized on social media, with some calling for Spotify to deplatform Rogan for spreading "disinformation" on vaccines. But despite what his critics say, Rogan has insisted that he is not anti-vaccine. Back in April, he explained that he thought people who were at low-risk of serious illness from COVID-19 and believe they don't need the vaccine should be free to make the choice for themselves. "I am not an anti-vax person," Rogan said. "In fact, I said I...
    EVERY slice of pizza you eat could shorten your lifespan by 7.8 minutes - but french fries will buy you more time, a new study has claimed.   Experts at the University of Michigan have calculated the health burden of different foods by looking at their carbon footprint and nutritional impact. 5Pizza can shorten your lifespan by 7.8 minutes according to the studyCredit: Getty 5 5French fries can add minutes to your lifespanCredit: Getty - Contributor They found that a portion of french fries can add 1.5 minutes to a person's life and nuts can add almost 26, reports The Telegraph. Meanwhile a peanut butter and jam sandwich gives a person more than half an hour extra. Foods like pizza, bacon and burgers, however, will lose you time - with a serving of pizza slashing off almost 10 minutes of healthy life. The study, published in the journal Nature Food, is based around healthy life expectancy - the length of time a person has a good quality of life and is disease free.  The scientists behind the findings calculated the...
    ELLICOTT CITY (WJZ) — As school systems reevaluate their face covering policies, Howard County will become the first school system in the state to mandate COVID-19 vaccines for its employees.

    Joe Rogan retracted his comments on Thursday after receiving backlash online for suggesting young, healthy people shouldn't worry about getting the COVID-19 vaccination. "I am not an anti-vax person," Rogan said on his popular Spotify podcast "The Joe Rogan Experience." "In fact, I said I believe they are safe and I encourage many people to take them. I just said if you're a young healthy person, you don't need it. Their argument was you need it for other people. But that's a different conversation. And yes, that makes sense," he continued.  Rogan, 53, clarified, "I am not a doctor. I am a f***ing moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator... I am not a respected source of information even for me. But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying."

     After receiving some major pushback from Dr. Anthony Fauci among others, Joe Rogan addressed the controversial comments he made about the coronavirus vaccine. “Well, the White House commented on what I said about vaccines,” Rogan said to comedian and podcast guest Andrew Santino, adding, “He disagreed with me.” Rogan later somewhat walked back on his comments, clarifying that he is “not an anti-vax person,” but once again repeating, “I just said that if you’re a young, healthy person that you don’t need it.” Rogan noted that Fauci was largely concerned with young, unvaccinated people spreading the virus to others and propagating the spread. “You’re talking about yourself in a vacuum,” Fauci said, later adding, “If you want to only worry about yourself and not society, then that’s okay.” “Their argument was you need it for other people,” Rogan continued. “But that’s a different argument. That’s a different conversation.” While Fauci perhaps tapped into a different argument surrounding vaccines, the conversation is still the same, as Rogan deliberately advised healthy people to skip the shot altogether, going against the advice of medical...
    Joe Rogan backpedaled Thursday on his claim that healthy young Americans don’t need to get vaccinated against COVID-19 — insisting he’s “not an anti-vaxx person.” On his popular podcast “Joe Rogan Experience,” the 53-year-old comedian downplayed his own credibility after his comments sparked outrage on social media and a response from Dr. Anthony Fauci. “I’m not a doctor, I’m a f-cking moron,” Rogan said. “I’m not a respected source of information, even for me … But I at least try to be honest about what I’m saying.” He clarified that the comments made on his podcast last week — that young, healthy people don’t “need to worry about ” getting the shots — didn’t stem from a belief that vaccines are dangerous. “I’m not an anti-vaxx person,” he said. “I said I believe they’re safe and I encourage many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated. I just said that if you’re a young, healthy person that you don’t need it.” Joe Rogan said he is “not an anti-vaxx person” and was scheduled to get the vaccine himself.Getty Images He...

    New York (CNN Business)Joe Rogan, one of the world's highest paid and most popular podcast hosts, is giving air to anti-vaccine narratives. On his Spotify (SPOT) exclusive podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience," Rogan told listeners that if a 21-year-old asked him if they should get vaccinated, he would suggest no.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Todd Gurley marveled at the way a healthy Julio Jones made playing football look like a video game. Gurley also was impressed that a healthy Jones made the Atlanta Falcons finally look like winners. After missing all but one half of the previous three games with a hamstring injury, Jones made a huge impact in last week’s 40-23 win at Minnesota. Jones returned with eight catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns. It was a strong reminder of the value of a healthy Jones, including in Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. After missing Wednesday’s practice, Jones returned Thursday and spoke with enthusiasm about his recovery from the injury when he said, “Now I can go out, I can produce, I can be me, I can have fun.” Added Jones: “Lean on me. You can lean on me throughout the game. Everything. I’m ready to go. It’s a great feeling. It’s a great spot to be in.” Jones’ return to health is big news for quarterback Matt Ryan, Gurley and Atlanta’s other playmakers. Gurley,...
    Tyler Stanfield wrote his latest single, “Whiskey Heart,” when he was living in Austin, Texas, a few years ago. He says people who aren’t paying attention think it’s a song about drinking. “It’s not,” Stanfield says. “Whiskey is a metaphor. That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.

    (Reuters) - Giant panda Mei Xiang gave birth to a healthy cub on Friday at the National Zoo in Washington, and immediately began nursing and cuddling the tiny new arrival, animal care staff said. It was too early to tell whether the infant is male or female but the baby marks the fourth successful pregnancy for Mei Xiang, a 22-year-old panda who, because of her advanced age, had a slim chance of having a healthy cub, zoo officials said. "We are thrilled to offer the world a much-needed moment of pure joy," said Steve Monfort, zoo director. The zoo only confirmed this week the presence of a fetus via ultrasound, which they posted online. News of Mei Xiang's pregnancy sparked enthusiasm among animal lovers who flocked to the zoo's panda cams https://nationalzoo.si.edu/webcams/panda-cam to get a glimpse of the expectant mother. Scientists at the zoo first detected fetal tissue last week after Mei Xiang was artificially inseminated in March with previously frozen sperm after previous failed pregnancy attempts and despite being near the end of her reproductive lifecycle. "We knew the...
