Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Senate Bill 63, the Smokefree Workplace bill, advanced out of the House Rules Committee last night, with a few adjustments. The House Rules Committee advanced a rewrite of the smoke-free workplace bill that would allow communities to opt out via local elections and excludes e-cigarettes and marijuana from the definition of smoking. The original bill had widespread support, but House Rules Committee Chair Gabrielle LeDoux refused to schedule it for a vote on the House floor. She said the state should not force municipalities into a program they may not want. Senator Peter Micciche (R-K-Pen) is the sponsor of the bill that was introduced in 2016 that ultimately failed after clearing the Senate. If the bill passes the House, the Senate must decide whether to accept the new changes.

“Realising you are an overweight individual, in itself, is likely to be quite stressful and results in making healthy choices in your lifestyle more difficult. It is a tricky finding for doctors,” said Dr Eric Robinson from the University’s institute of psychology, health and society.The team found that those who identified themselves as being “overweight” were more likely to report overeating in response to stress and this predicted subsequent weight gain. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The researchers looked at the lives of 14,000 adults in the US and Britain.They analysed data from time periods after the children had reached adulthood to find out their perception of their own weight —whether or not it was correct —and their subsequent weight gain over time. You would hope that making a person aware they are overweight would result in them being more likely to adopt a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight.“What is important is to tackle stigma in society. People with a heavier body weight have body image challenges. That is not surprising given the way we talk about weight as a society,” Robinson added in a paper published in the International Journal of Obesity.There are ways of encouraging people to make healthy changes to their lifestyle that don’t portray obesity as a terrible thing, the authors concluded.
