Trans Fats harm, danger, side effects, increased risk for heart disease and stroke, replace them with healthy foods and oils, by Ray Sahelian, M. The FDA ruled that partially hydrogenated oils -- the major source of trans fats in the American diet -- are no longer "generally recognized as safe," the designation that for decades has allowed companies to use the oils in a wide variety of food products. Recent estimates indicate that consumers in Western countries may receive from 0. Trans fat is found in many common foods including some margarine, fast foods, biscuits, cakes and pastry.
Posted on February 9, by Scott Alexander I. Tyler Cowen writes about cost disease. Cowen seems to use it indiscriminately to refer to increasing costs in general — which I guess is fine, goodness knows we need a word for that.
Cowen assumes his readers already understand that cost disease exists.
So I thought I would make the case for the cost disease in the sectors Tyler mentions — health care and education — plus a couple more. There was some argument about the style of this graph, but as per Politifact the basic claim is true.
Per student spending has increased about 2. At the same time, test scores have stayed relatively stagnant. School spending has been on exactly the same trajectory before and after that time, and in white and minority areas, suggesting that there was something specific about that decade which improved minority but not white scores.
I discuss this phenomenon more here and herebut the summary is: Costs really did more-or-less double without any concomitant increase in measurable quality. Which would you prefer?
Sending your child to a school? Second, college is even worse: My parents sometimes talk about their college experience, and it seems to have had all the relevant features of a college experience.
The graph is starting to look disappointingly familiar: The cost of health care has about quintupled since This has had the expected effects. Life expectancy has gone way up since In terms of calculating how much lifespan gain healthcare spending has produced, we have a couple of options.
Start with by country: Some people use this to prove the superiority of centralized government health systems, although Random Critical Analysis has an alternative perspective. In any case, it seems very possible to get the same improving life expectancies as the US without octupling health care spending.
The Netherlands increased their health budget by a lot aroundsparking a bunch of studies on whether that increased life expectancy or not. In none of these studies is the issue of reverse causality addressed; sometimes it is not even mentioned.
This implies that the effect of health care spending on mortality may be overestimated. Based on our review of empirical studies, we conclude that it is likely that increased health care spending has contributed to the recent increase in life expectancy in the Netherlands.
An important reason for the wide range in such estimates is that they all include methodological problems highlighted in this paper. But if we irresponsibly take their median estimate and apply it to the current question, we get that increasing health spending in the US has been worth about one extra year of life expectancy.
That would suggest a slightly different number of 0. Or instead of slogging through the statistics, we can just ask the same question as before.

He is batting just since the start of the season and making $11 million in with an $ million vesting option for This article discusses the effect of banning smoking in public places such as bars and res-taurants.
It shows how individuals are reacting to the possible ban, are . The control variables assessed at baseline included age, gender, income, education, smoking status (i.e., smoked in the previous month), whether smoking was prohibited inside the respondent's home, and potential exposure to the law (i.e., worked in enclosed areas or in the previous month visited restaurants or cafés, fondas or informal.
Total smoking bans have been found to contribute positively to the health of non-smokers by reducing exposure to second-hand smoke, and to enhance the likelihood of cessation among smokers. Two cross-sectional electronic surveys of staff and students at a large Australian university were conducted prior (n = ) and 1 year post (n = ) the implementation of a smoke free campus policy.
