Women and Anger
Music and Cholesterol
Research at Duke University shows that reading the right kind of books may help fight obesity among teens. Girls in the age group of 9 to 13 who had enlisted for a weight loss programme were asked to read a book called LakeRescueas part of the programme. The book is not only about weight management and following a healthy lifestyle, but it also talks about role models and is embedded with positive thoughts and messages. It is a book that has been well researched and has also taken help from pediatricians.
Body Mass Index
Girls who had read the book were found to have a significant reduction in body mass index. The book is in the form of story of an overweight girl who has to go on a school trip and dreads it. The story ends with her making friends, improving her self esteem and learning how to stay physically active. Pediatricians are hoping that since many teens look up to fictional characters for role models, more authors will work on books that will help combat growing obesity in the world. The pen is really mighty, isn’t it?
