Being even slightly overweight in adulthood may increase a person’s risk of early death, a new study finds. Earlier this month, researchers at Boston University and Harvard University published a review of three studies that together followed more than 225,000 adults, all health care professionals, for eight to 20 years. The review showed that being even slightly overweight can increase a person’s risk of dying by 6 percent, and for those who are obese, by a whopping 73 percent.
Drinking milk and restricting fruits and vegetables are both associated with increased risk for premature death, according to a Swedish study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology. The study of more than 106,000 men and women found the following:More milk, fewer vegetables decreased life expectancy.
Many people with high blood sugar levels are told by their doctors that they don’t have diabetes because their fasting blood sugar levels are normal. Normal is below 100 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl). But here is the problem: Early in the disease, diabetics often have a “normal” fasting blood sugar, yet one hour after they eat, their blood sugar levels rise above 140. This signals that they are at increased risk for heart attacks, strokes, cancers, nerve damage and premature death.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
