Much of the medical literature is prone to bias and is, in fact, wrong.  A recent article points out some of the reasons why, given a statistical association between X and Y, most people make the assumption that X caused Y. However, we can easily come up with 5 other scenarios to explain the same situation.

A federal appeals court agreed to re-hear a case involving subsidies for individuals purchasing policies in the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) federally run health insurance exchanges.  The decision is widely seen as a victory for the Obama administration. "Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges 'established by the State,' we reverse the district court and vacate the IRS' [Internal Revenue Service's] regulation," wrote Judge Thomas Griffith on behalf of the three-judge panel.

Back App Ergonomic Work Chair

The Back App Ergonomic Chair is now available in the U.S. Designed by a Norwegian scientist and clinically proven to relieve lower back pain caused by sitting, this product reengineers traditional, static seating for the home and office.

“Americans know being active is good and sitting is bad,” Todd Comer, DC, said. “But, the reality is they still find themselves sitting for hours in chairs not designed for the rigorous, multi-tasking pace of daily life and unfortunately, no workout regime, gadget, phone app or mental reminder will correct the damage being done by hours of static sitting. The Back App chair reengineers the chair for a more active sitting experience.”

The demands of the modern workplace result in more time spent sitting.  The traditionally designed chair — no matter how ergonomic — forces the individual into a passive sitting position, requiring the individual to remember to sit up and retain an anatomically correct position. With the posture straight, lap at a 90-degree angle and the chin pulled in, an individual quickly tires due to the static use of muscles and the back posture collapses into a c-shape position. This posture then puts unhealthy pressure on the discs of the spine, incapacitating muscles throughout the body and tilting the neck backwards.
