Pres. Obama orders US Gov to create plan to fight antibiotic resistance

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Signaling the seriousness of the threat posed by antibiotic-resistant germs, President Barack Obama on Thursday ordered the government to create a national plan to fight them by early 2015.

"This is an urgent health threat and a threat to our economic stability as well," said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as he joined two of Obama's scientific advisers to announce the steps.

Already the world is facing a situation where once-treatable germs can kill. Repeated exposure to antibiotics can lead germs to become resistant to the drug so that it is no longer effective in treating a particular illness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, antibiotic-resistant infections are linked to 23,000 deaths and 2 million illnesses in the United States annually. The impact to the U.S. economy is as high as $20 billion, the White House said, or more, if you count lost productivity from those who are sickened. And the problem is worsening.

Obama signed an executive order Thursday that would form a government task force and presidential advisory council on the issue, and he called for new regulations to make sure there is appropriate oversight of the use of antibiotics in hospitals. The orders also encourage better tracking of antibiotic use and the development of new antibiotics and tests.

Lose weight by looking at a picture

A recent study showed that over-stimulating your brain with pictures of foods you are craving, may help kill your desire for them.
Professor Ryan Elder, who led the study, which is published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology, said:
“In a way, you’re becoming tired of that taste without even eating the food.
It’s sensory boredom — you’ve kind of moved on. You don’t want that taste experience any more.”
What’s happening is that each time you look at another photograph of some food, you get less pleasure from it. When you're enjoyment of eating something decreases, you're a lot less likely to crave it.

This method may not work for everyone, but it could work for you if you feel like certain foods have you in their grip. You need to reach that tipping point, though, because just looking at a few pictures of delicious food can have opposite the effect and make your food even tastier.
