According to channel 8 news there is a popular misconception that because sports drinks and other noncarbonated beverages are associated with physical activity they must be healthy, University of Texas researchers report.
In a study of more than 15,000 middle and high school students throughout Texas, researchers found that kids who drank sugar-sweetened beverages, including sports drinks, were more likely than kids who didn’t to eat unhealthy foods and watch more TV than those who did not. However, students who drank sports beverages were more likely than soda drinkers to exercise and consume fruits, vegetables and milk — suggesting they viewed sports drinks as healthy.
“Adolescents and their parents need to be educated that consumption of large amounts of flavored and sports beverages is not consistent with a healthy lifestyle,” said lead researcher Nalini Ranjit, an assistant professor of health promotion and behavioral sciences at the Michael & Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living at the University of Texas School of Public Health in Austin.
Dr. Stuart Kincaid is seldom surprised to learn that the public has accepted something that is simply not true. In plastic surgery the most controversial and tested product is silicone breast implants. Dr. Stuart Kincaid explains to patients the details of the FDA investigation and the reintroduction of silicone breast implants into the market. Often patients are confused and have misinformation about the devices. Silicone implants for breast augmentation are FDA approved and deemed safe for patients to choose them. Dr. Stuart Kincaid informs his patients that each patient is different and in some cases he may recommend silicone over saline. In the end the decision is always left to the patient. Dr. Stuart Kincaid has plenty of before-and-after photos for patients to view on his website.
