When my daughter was born, I was ready. I had my facts straight and knew exactly how I wanted my daughter to feel about her body. To think about her self-worth. I was prepared to wage war on negative body image. Never in a million years did it occur ...
A majority of U.S. residents are willing to use an online video for a physician visit, according to a Harris Poll survey, MobiHealthNewsreports.
The survey, which was commissioned by telehealth company American Well, collected responses from 2,019 U.S. adults ages 18 and older in December 2014.
Overall, the survey found about 64% respondents were willing see a doctor via an online video consult.
Of those, 61% listed convenience as a factor.
The survey found respondents' willingness to switch to an online physician visit varied by age and the number of years they had seen their doctors (Pai, MobiHealthNews, 1/21). The survey showed:
6% of respondents who had seen their physician for at least 10 years said they would switch;8% of respondents who had seen their physician for five to nine years said they would switch;10% of respondents who had seen their physician for two to four years said they would switch;7% of respondents who had seen their physician for less than one year said they would switch (Harris Poll survey, December 2014);11% of patients ages 18 to 34 said they would switch;8% of patients ages 35 to 44 said would switch (MobiHealthNews, 1/21);5% of patient ages 45 to 54 and 55 to 64 said they would switch; and4% of patients age 65 and older said they would switch (Harris Poll survey, December 2014).
However, about 88% of respondents said they would like to select the physician for a video visit rather than be randomly assigned one
Summary: A new study reports our ability to empathize with those in pain is grounded in cognitive neural processes rather than sensory processes.

The ability to understand and empathize with others’ pain is grounded in cognitive neural processes rather than sensory ones, according to the results of a new study led by University of Colorado Boulder researchers.
The findings show that the act of perceiving others’ pain (i.e., empathy for others’ pain) does not appear to involve the same neural circuitry as experiencing pain in one’s own body, suggesting that they are different interactions within the brain.
“The research suggests that empathy is a deliberative process that requires taking another person’s perspective rather than being an instinctive, automatic process,” said Tor Wager, the senior author of the study, director of the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory and Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at CU-Boulder.
A study detailing the results was published online today in the journal eLife.
What happens to your body if you go without food? After about six hours, you could start feeling "hangry" -- that's hungry and angry. Keep going for about 72 hours (or three days) and not only will your

Researchers from Leeds Beckett University asked 301 under-nines questions about their attitude to food and how happy they were with their bodies. Despite the obesity problem, anorexia rates have risen.

Rebecca Burge Cooper's insight:
If a person has anorexia they REALLY do see them self as fat.
I'm embarrassed about all the time I've spent thinking about my weight. No one has ever told me I needed to lose any. Doctors mark my weight "average," and aside from a few middle school incidents, friends, family, and strangers have been positive about my body. But I'm not always happy with my appearance. Although I strongly believe in accepting all bodies and am grateful to be healthy, I have spent much of my life wishing I were thinner.
