Do bacteria hold key to weight loss?

Do bacteria hold key to weight loss? | social networks | Scoop.it

The search for the most successful way to shed the pounds seems never-ending.

Now researchers in China have looked at what impact gut bacteria have on people's weight.

They think that changing the type of bacteria found in the gut may be more effective at helping people to shed weight than cutting calories alone.

But can it really be as simple as that?

Experts warn we shouldn't ditch the cucumber sticks and hot yoga just yet.

The latest World Health Organization figures show there were more than 1.4 billion adults aged 20 or older who were overweight in 2008.

Of these, 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese.

Those numbers are rising - they have doubled since 1980.

Lab tests in mice found an association between bacteria and obesity, but trials with people are only just getting started.

In a clinical trial, published in the journal Microbiology Ecology, scientists in Shanghai studied 93 obese people who started with an average Body Mass Index (BMI) of 32.

They fed the volunteers supplements that promoted the growth of certain types of bacteria and reduced the levels of other bacteria in the gut, alongside a balanced diet.

The Seven Deadly Sins of Startup Storytelling

The Seven Deadly Sins of Startup Storytelling | social networks | Scoop.it

So you called a cab, but no one’s showing. The only thing the cranky dispatcher will say is “He’ll be there in 15.” You call back in 15, and he now says, “Driver’s on the way. Any minute now.” Click. It’s cold, it's getting dark, and you’re already late.

 

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an app that let you tap into an unused supply of empty cabs and cars to get you where you want to go, perhaps with a little style? So goes the legendary inspiration behind Uber, a story now encapsulated in a single tagline: “Everyone’s private driver.”

 

When it comes to persuasion, companies have traditionally appealed to the left side of the brain — logic, pricing, specs. Emotion, however, has proven to be the better marketing tool. As Daniel Pink, author of Drive, writes, “Right-brain dominance is the new source of competitive advantage.” Appealing to the right side of the brain allows for deeper engagement by uniting an idea with an emotion. The best way to do this: Tell a story.

 

That said, the way you tell a company’s story is (and should be) quite different from the way you’d tell a story at a party. While the same techniques for success apply, too often business stories fall flat or set unnecessary fires, particularly in the domain of start-ups. You see it all the time. But in my experience, you can’t teach a company how to tell its story — just like you can’t teach someone to have a certain personality. Instead, I’ll give you the big don’ts....
