John Mc Bride discussed that in a cross-sectional study referred to as ISAAC involving 122 centers in 54 countries, the researchers identified children with wheezing and asthma symptoms and collected acetaminophen exposure, and other factors contributing to the severity of asthma. It revealed that for 6-7 year olds, the risk of asthma was increased 1.61 –fold representing 95% confidence interval: 1.46-1.77 for those who used acetaminophen less than once per month but more than once per year. The link of acetaminophen and asthma was pointed out at almost all sites regardless of culture, geography or stage of economic development. The investigators calculated a population-attributable risk (PAR) for severe asthma symptoms related to exposure to acetaminophen was 38%. Despite the cross-sectional studies between acetaminophen and asthma association, researchers cannot prove that acetaminophen causes asthma but the association might be explained by the following factors: 1) confounding by indication (fever or viral illness in asthmatic persons that lead to acetaminophen and asthma exposure, 2) confounding by reverse causation (asthma causing fever or pain resulting to acetaminophen exposure), 3) preferential use of acetaminophen by children at greater risk for asthma due to fear that aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medications) may increase symptoms of
This 12 year study indicates that 1999, of the roughly 31 million health club members in the United States, more than 12.5 million have become .core members, visiting their clubs 100 or more days in 1999, up from 5.3 million in 1987. In terms of total population of health club members, the study also found an impressive increase in the average number of visits per year members made their clubs. Besides that, club members have discovered, now more than ever, the knowledge and expertise health club staff has to offer. Broken down by gender, men aged 55-64 years old visited a health club more than twice a week, or an average of 113 days, while those 65 and older visited their clubs just less than twice a
Many studies have been conducted to test this statement’s validity, as the U.S. Department of Transportation studied energy conservation during daylight saving time in the 1970s, concluding that “America’s electricity usage is reduced by about one percent during each day that daylight savings time is in effect.” (Source B) This is a huge statement as it does not say one percent over the period of daylight saving, but one percent per day of daylight saving. Another more recent study by DOT (U.S. Department of Transportation) in 2005 has shown that “the total electricity savings associated with DST (daylight saving time) amounted to about 1 percent in spring and fall, corresponding to national savings of forty to fifty megawatt hours per day.” (Source C) Now although this number is much more significant, there is a

The FOIA can be viewed as a successful tool for civil society by viewing the change in the frequency of requests over time.  In 1990, there were a total of 491,000 requests filed, with the Defense Department receiving the highest number at 118,000.  By 2012, there were a total of 651,254 filed requests, with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) receiving the highest number at 190,589.  However, when comparing the rate of backlogged requests remaining at the end of a year compared to the number of total requests received in the same year, DHS comes in at only 14.98% compared to the Department of State at 56.5% with 10,464 backlogged requests, and the National Archives and Records Administration at 57% with 7610 backlogged requests at the end of 2012. This is in contrast with agencies such as the Department of Agriculture, which reported 741 backlogged requests at 3.34% of its total annual requests for the same
A collection of philosophical, religious, psychological and biological approaches had attempted to define happiness and analyze its connections. Researchers have found that about 50% of people happiness depends on our genes, based on studies of identical twins, whose happiness was 50% correlated even when growing up in different houses. About 10% to 15% is a result of various measurable life circumstances variables, such as socioeconomic status, marital status, health, income, and others. The remaining 40% is a combination of intentional factors and the results of actions that individuals deliberately engage in to become happier. Studies have also found that most of us are born with a fixed “set point” of happiness that we fall in throughout our lives.
