As time has progressed so has medical science resulting in longer, healthier lives, at least for those who can afford it. Unlike third world countries here in the United States of America we don’t have much to worry about in regards to our health. Society has become more and more obsessed with appearance, so much so that some plastic surgery procedures have managed to make it to the list of top 14 medical procedures. In America we sure do like to eat and it shows with liposuction being the top cosmetic procedure with 203,106 done in 2010.
Today’s infographic Under the Knife: 14 Most Common Medical and Cosmetic Procedures in the USA presents us, as it says in the title, with some of the top medical and cosmetic procedures being done here in the US. Although it is not very detailed it provides us with some pretty entertaining facts. Did you know there were 62 million CT scans done in 2010 and that 30% of those were unnecessary for diagnosis?
Have you or anybody you know ever had one of these done? We want to know! Feel free to share your stories either in the comments section or on our wall.[Medical Procedures]Share This Infographic
To sum up today’s infographic I can say the creators really like chocolate milk. Chocolate milk is a dessert. There’s now way it could be healthy, yet compared to drinks like cola it is a much smarter choice. When we were kids we were told milk made us bigger and stronger. I was never told chocolate milk did the same. I’m heading to the store tomorrow to get some Hershey’s Syrup to have chocolate milk with every meal. Who says only kids can drink it. I want strong bones too.
There is a statistic that says if chocolate milk is an option at lunch, overall milk consumption goes up 35%. This stat can be thrown out as a myth because everyone knows that at every lunch the majority of kids would get chocolate milk, and then the cafeteria would run out and those children late to eat were stuck with plain-old white milk.
Besides the school cafeteria, I also got my main supply of chocolate milk via Luby’s or by asking my mom “More Ovaltine please!”. [Via]Share This Infographic
Michael Jordan is undoubtedly my favorite basketball player. He was a major childhood hero, I loved watching him destroy the Utah Jazz year after year. But I can’t say I already knew all the facts about him on this infographic.
While it’s hard to label any single basketball player as the best ever, I must say he is the most impressive player I’ve seen in my lifetime. You may have seen our Kobe vs. MJ infographic, but I refuse to acknowledge any comparison between the two.
If you’re as big of an MJ fan as me, you should check out this video I stumbled upon a few days ago. Nothing better than watching all my favorite players dominating on the same court at the same time. If you have any cool stats or videos of MJ you should share them in the comments. Or maybe you have your own opinions on the best NBA player… [Via]Share This Infographic
I live in a college town, so even if I hid under a rock, it would be obvious that another school year is beginning. Another school year fraught with potentially stressful situations: concurrently scheduled exams, classes filled with strangers, and the ubiquitous pressure of GPAs. Life is stressful in general, but college students face high levels of stress compounded with newfound independence. Its no wonder the pressure is too much. Today’s infographic takes a look at stressed-out students and what they can do to enhance their mental health.
According to the infographic, meditating, participating in hobbies, sleeping, and spending time with friends can ward off the negative impact of stress. Sure, these activities are obvious, but they are also items that don’t make the cut when schedules are tight. Another key tip is knowing when to ask for help. Most colleges have counselors or programs if the stress does become overbearing.
Here’s to another school year and to keeping the stress at bay. [Via]Share This Infographic
