The people of Montana face a health crisis: the crisis of obesity. Across our state, the number of overweight and obese individuals is rapidly increasing. In the Treasure State alone almost 59% of the population is overweight or obese. It's killing us -- nationwide, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death -- and it may lead to life-threatening illnesses called co-morbidities, such as Type II diabetes, cancer, heart conditions and hypertension, among those who have it.Obesity is expensive, too. In Montana, obesity-related expenditures account for nearly five percent of all state government health spending.There is no royal road to instant weight loss. The only way to lose excess weight is to reduce the body's daily caloric intake below its daily caloric needs.

Cosmetic surgery trends and aesthetic ideals change over the course of time. The concept of beauty itself is personal, subjective and culturally influenced. What most people don't realize is that geographic location heavily influences the popularity of certain procedures. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, or ASPS, conducted a study that recorded these geographic plastic surgery trends throughout the United States. Some of their findings will probably surprise you.For example, it was found that 48% of hair transplants occur in Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas.

He is nearly 30 pounds lighter and says doctors have told him there is no longer any indication of cancer in his body. “I feel great, better than I have felt in a long, long time,” he said Thursday, adding that was partly due to the weight loss, adding he has had to buy a new wardrobe. And through it all, he managed to get his master’s degree in public administration from the University of Montana and plans to attend graduation ceremonies in May. The 61-year-old grandfather of six announced in April that he had colon cancer surgery in which 7 inches of his colon was removed and underwent four chemotherapy treatments. “I wouldn’t wish it on anybody,” Fox says of the ordeal. He says as a cancer survivor there are lifestyle issues you have … [Read more...] about Montana attorney general now says cancer free
