And Now for some news ….
Women and High Heels
Women wearing high-heeled shoes have been considered to be more characterizing of beauty, self-assurance and elegance. However, while maintaining the body on this type of support base, women with increased heel height often complain that wearing high-heeled shoes causes them to experience low back pain.
The aim of the present study was to morphologically assess the effect of high-heel use on the static sagittal profile of the spino-pelvic structure.
A total of 21 Chinese girls were recruited in this study, with informed written consent. For each participant, standing left lateral radiographs, including that of the spine and pelvis, were obtained in a standardized standing position under barefoot and high-heel use conditions.
The radiographic assessments were performed to detect the changes in the spino-pelvic profile under barefoot and high-heel use conditions.
The present study revealed that wearing high-heeled shoes can lead to increased Lumbar Lordosis and an uneconomic body position.
This finding may help explain why some women complain that wearing high-heeled shoes causes them to experience low back pain.

Aging and Chronic Ailments
A recent study published in the journal The Lancet, looked at Up-to-date evidence about levels and trends in disease and injury incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability (YLDs) as essential input into global, regional, and national health policies.
In the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (GBD 2013), the authors of the study estimated these quantities for acute and chronic diseases and injuries for 188 countries between 1990 and 2013.
Findings from the study found that Comorbidity rose substantially with age and in absolute terms from 1990 to 2013. Conversely, leading chronic sequelae were largely attributable to non-communicable diseases, with prevalence estimates for asymptomatic permanent caries and tension-type headache of 2·4 billion and 1·6 billion, respectively.
The study concluded that Ageing of the world’s population is leading to a substantial increase in the numbers of individuals with sequelae of diseases and injuries. Rates of years lived with disability are declining much more slowly than mortality rates.
The non-fatal dimensions of disease and injury will require more and more attention from health systems. The transition to non-fatal outcomes as the dominant source of burden of disease is occurring rapidly outside of sub-Saharan Africa.
The authors suggest that these results can guide future health initiatives through examination of epidemiological trends and a better understanding of variation across countries.
Funding for this study was from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
