Lesbian Sues Doctors

Doctors, who refused a woman IVF on the grounds that she was a lesbian, have been sued by her before California's Supreme Court.

According to Lambda Legal lawyer Jennifer Pizer the doctors' behavior went against established medical ethics //and violates California civil rights law. The suit was announced to have been filed on Tuesday.

The doctors however claimed that being fundamental Christians prevented them from complying with California's civil rights law. In addition they also objected to treating lesbian patients in the same way as they treat regular patients.

However an appeals court overturned a trial court decision that Guadalupe Benitez was refused (IVF) infertility treatment in violation of California law.

Keywords: Obesity, epidemic, oxyntomodulin, stomach hormone, energy expenditure, food intake, exercise, overweight, adaptive trait Recent studies have shown that increasing the levels of a hormone found in the stomach could aid in curbing appetite as well as increasing activity in overweight and obese people.

The res ults of the study have been published in the International Journal of Obesity.

The research team from Imperial College London gave injections of the hormone oxyntomodulin to fifteen overweight volunteers from Hammersmith Hospital. They were monitored for their subsequent food intake as well as their activity levels.

Lead researcher Professor Steve Bloom, from Imperial College London, says, ‘The discovery that this hormone has a double effect, increasing energy expenditure as well as reducing food intake, could be of huge importance. When most people diet, this produces a reduction in activity, which is probably an adaptive trait to conserve energy during times of famine. However this does make it especially difficult for obese individuals trying to lose weight.’

However oxyntomodulin has been shown to decrease calorific intake by increasing energy expenditure proving to be an ideal option for the obese. In addition a reduction in body weight of about 0.5 percent has also been observed.

This exciting discovery could better equip health care providers in treating the current obesity epidemic by concentrating more on exercise and less on food.
