REUTERS/Andrew Winning But any new health risks gained by putting on a few extra pounds are overwhelmed by the health benefits of giving up tobacco, researchers report in The New England Journal of Medicine. The analysis found that weight gains up to 5 kg (11.02 lb) after quitting raised the risk of developing diabetes by about 15 percent compared to continuing smokers, and greater weight gains increased the risk proportionately. But that risk began declining after five to seven years to eventually match that of never-smokers. “The more weight you gain, the more the risk.

The participants were then allowed to sleep for as long as they liked for another two nights. The researchers examined the participants’ eating habits during both simulations. The findings revealed that certain volunteers felt surprisingly hungry after enduring two sleepless nights.

This is the conclusion of a Harvard-led study that found a correlation between obesogens and weight increase among dieters. The technical term for obesogens is “perfluoroalkyl substances” (PFAS). They are a class of chemicals that have been used in food wrappers, pots, pans, and other consumer and industrial products for the last 60 years. Called “obesogens” because of … [Read more...] about Double whammy: Chemicals found in everyday products such as fast food wrappers found to sabotage metabolism, contribute to weight gain
