the obesity epidemic and overeating, overweight kids

Testosterone reduces leptin.  Leptin reduces appetite.  Therefore, children of
higher testosterone have less appetite suppression.  It is my hypothesis that
the percentage of individuals of higher testosterone is increasing.  Therefore,
overeating is increasing.  This accounts for the obesity "epidemic" in the U.S.

Research regarding kidney failure: I´m perplexed

Last night I was watching Animal Planet when I learned that reseachers
are studying the biochemistry of polar bears because they may find
something that may be beneficial for kidney failure patients.

This is what got their interest: polar bear will hybernate during the
winter without defecating or urinating.

What I know regarding polar bears is that they will gain a lot of fat
during the warmer months to be able to withstand hybernation. When
food is abundant, he will eat mostly the fat and leave the meat and
bones behind.

Now here are my questions:

If one does not eat, one does not defecate. If the polar bear is not
eating during his hybernation, why should he defecate?

Burning fat will result in carbon dioxide and water. Carbon dioxide is
eliminated by lungs and water is also partly eliminated by lungs. The
bear is not drinking water during his hybernation so there is no real
need to urinate. Fat, unlike protein, will not generate urea.

Did I miss something or are they waisting time and money with
something stupid?

You might be descended from a lump of coal, Ed, but your fantasies are
inapprop[riate in genealogical newsgroups.

Squamous papilloma?

The subject is diagnosed with a benign "squamous papilloma" on the
exterior of the ankle but it does not fit the descriptions of such
revealed by a google search. Surgical removal is being recomended.
The lesion was found after removing a scab about 1/4 inch or so in
diameter that had remained in place for at least a couple months.
Found underneath is a hollowed out cavity that simply bled again
a new scab. If it is cleaned with a swab it will bleed profusely, then
scab over. After over a year of failed treatments, such as
epsome salt soaks, trace bleach soaks, hydrogen peroxide, herb
poultice, oil of oregano, antibiotic creams, internal antibiotics,
steriod, and silver creams with no healing, a biopsy showed the
diagnosis. Blood work shows no anomolies.

A search on "squamous papilloma" talks more about warts and other
"growths", not something that appears to be creating a cavity in the
skin, eating it, and not healing. When the lesion is kept treated with
prescribed cream and bandaged it stays cavitated and has a light or
white colored bottom. It appeared to try to heal the most from
internal antibiotic but never quit made it. It is not to the bone but
surely through most all the layers of skin.

Anyone recognize this and can explain it?

photodynamic therapy

one of my options for research at uni is applications of photodynamic
therapy for the treatment of respiratory pathogens. has anyone here done any
work on this or know of any organisation that has. i know it is a fairly new
topic for research and articles and reviews are quite hard to come by. can
anybody help?
my other options are factors influencing the pathogenicity of acanthamoeba
spp. or alternatively induction of drug resistance in giardia. i have to
admit that giardia doesn’t excite me all that much!
