The use of physicians in Camel advertisements

The use of physicians in Camel advertisements could not be sustained as the health evidence against cigarettes accumulated.

“The Doctors’ Choice Is America’s Choice”

The Physician in US Cigarette Advertisements, 1930–1953
Martha N. Gardner, PhD and Allan M. Brandt, PhD

In the 1930s and 1940s, smoking became the norm for both men and women in the United States, and a majority of physicians smoked. At the same time, there was rising public anxiety about the health risks of cigarette smoking. One strategic response of tobacco companies was to devise advertising referring directly to physicians. As ad campaigns featuring physicians developed through the early 1950s, tobacco executives used the doctor image to assure the consumer that their respective brands were safe.

These advertisements also suggested that the individual physicians’ clinical judgment should continue to be the arbiter of the harms of cigarette smoking even as systematic health evidence accumulated. However, by 1954, industry strategists deemed physician images in advertisements no longer credible in the face of growing public concern about the health evidence implicating cigarettes.

High-fat diets can lead to depression

High-fat diets can lead to depression: study

Friday, March 27, 2015, 9:27 AM

Diets high in fat can lead to not only weight gain and heart disease, but depression and behavior changes, according to a new study at Louisiana State University.
These changes come about due to the high-fat diet's affect on the gut microbiome, according to the study.
The microbiome is a term used to describe the overall composition of microorganisms that reside in the intestinal tract, most of which are necessary for normal physiological functioning, although poor diversification can lead to health problems.
Working with mice, the research team set out to test whether an obesity-related microbiome could also affect behavior and mood.
They transferred the gut microbiota from mice that had been fed either a high-fat diet or a control diet into adult mice of normal weight that had been kept on a normal diet.
Recipient mice were kept under observation and researchers evaluated them for behavior and cognitive change.
Those who had received microbiota shaped by a high-fat diet underwent behavioral changes indicating increased anxiety and impaired memory.
They also engaged in repetitive behaviors and exhibited signs of physiological malaise such as inflammation.
"This paper suggests that high-fat diets impair brain health, in part, by disrupting the symbiotic relationship between humans and the microorganisms that occupy our gastrointestinal tracks," says Dr. John Krystal, Editor of Biological Psychiatry, in which the study was recently published.
Even in the absence of obesity, changes to the microbiota brought upon by a high-fat diet could alter brain function, according to the study, whose findings support prior research.
The research team says it's possible their study reveals the potential application of the gut microbiome to treat neuropsychiatric disorders.

Chart of Growing Obesity Problem


High-fat diet makes you dumber

You knew that eating high-fat foods made you fat, but it turns out that these foods also make you stupid.

High-fat diet makes you dumber

Honey, does this cheeseburger make me look stupid?

In fact, yes — new research shows that fatty diets break down neurons in your brain, making you stupid.

In the study, groups of mice were fed high- and low-fat diets. After three months, the mice on the fatty diet were not only obese, but lost synapses.

“What happens in obesity is (brain cells called) microglia stop moving...and start eating synapses," Dr. Alexis M. Stranahan of the Medical College of Georgia told Science News. "When microglia start eating synapses, the mice don't learn as effectively."

The good news is that the damage can be repaired, according to the study published in Brain, Behavior and Immunity.

Once scientists put the mice back on a low-fat diet, brain function returned.
