Sleeping With The TV On Can Make You Gain Weight???
It’s true: snoozing with the TV or other lights on can mix up your metabolism and make you gain weight.
The National Institutes of Health did a study on the topic, and although their results cannot be used as solid proof, they show sleeping with the TV on can have a negative effect.
Compared to men, the study showed women were more susceptible to weight gain following artificial light exposure at night.
Daily light exposure helps set our circadian rhythm, so being exposed to artificial light while sleeping can throw off your internal clock…
As a result, your metabolism, sleep-promoting hormones and blood pressure can be harmed.
Sleeping with the TV on can lead to poor health, including risks for high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and obesity.
Do YOU sleep with the TV on? If so, will you continue to do so after learning this??
David Ortiz Update: He Was Shot By a Hitman, Possibly Over an Affair…
There are still more questions than answers in the shooting of former Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz, but here’s the latest from around the Internet.
The Red Sox sent an “air ambulance” to pick up Ortiz and bring him back to Boston for additional medical treatment; he arrived last night.
There were reports that the bullet miraculously missed all his major organs, but that’s only partially true…
Doctors had to remove his gallbladder and part of his intestine, and he has damage to his liver and small intestine.
The Red Sox asked fans to observe a moment of reflection shortly before a game against the Texas Rangers at Fenway Park…
They posted a message on the videoboard saying “We send our love to David Ortiz.”
Ortiz’s assistant claims Ortiz was the target, and that he was shot by a hired gun.
“The robbery [motive] was discarded, and there’s no doubt it was an act of hitmen. It is under investigation and we hope that it will be concluded,” the assistant said.
British tabloids claim the hitman was hired by an unnamed drug lord, who wanted revenge because David was having an affair with his wife…
Of course, that’s just an unsubstantiated rumor at this point.
The “New York Post” put out some quotes David made four years ago, talking about how dangerous the Dominican Republic has become.
Boston.com has grainy surveillance video of the shooting.
What do YOU think of the situation? Why do you think Ortiz was a target?
