      Think having sex or going to gym class drives weight loss, or that breastfeeding protects a child from obesity? In fact, these are among seven popular obesity myths, according to an article published today in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). Such inaccurate, widespread beliefs, the authors argue, are leading to poor policy decisions, inaccurate public health recommendations and wasted resources. Read story here: http://bit.ly/YlVYzO

          • - INFINITE SCOTLAND TRAILER - lower bandwith

            Catch Infinite Scotland, the show, live at a theatre near you as part of 2013, the Year of Natural Scotland. Infinite Scotland explores the country’s contrasting landscapes, coastlines and cities in a groundbreaking project featuring breathtaking images, music, film and words. ‘Scotland small? Our multiform, infinite Scotland small?’ was a famously incredulous question posed by poet Hugh MacDiarmid, and inspiration for the show, narrated onstage by actor Blythe Duff and writer and broadcaster Kenny Taylor. “Scotland’s environment and culture are inextricably linked strands of the country’s DNA,” explained Infinite Scotland producer Bryan Beattie. “We wanted to explore that, using images, music and words. Putting Scotland’s DNA under the microscope in this way helps open our eyes to what’s around us. “There are remarkable things around us every day that sometimes we just don’t notice - and some things that we have just not been aware of at all. Sometimes looking at what’s around us in a fresh way can reveal something completely new about it.” Infinite Scotland blends scientific eyes and artistic creativity with astounding results. Grains of sand under an electron microscope, revelations about the language of plants, ancient sacred places, rocks, trees, mammals, birds - discovering the life and landscape around us and how we have interacted with it over millennia is profoundly compelling. The show features a backdrop of awe-inspiring images by National Geographic photographer Laurie Campbell, atmospheric live music composed by David Allison and the beautiful voice of Maeve MacKinnon. Films feature explorer Mark Beaumont, writers and broadcasters Richard Holloway and Muriel Gray, architect Malcolm Fraser and Gaelic singer & folklorist Margaret Bennett. Video and production designer John McGeoch has brought all the pieces together to create a spectacular multi-media journey across the beauty and wonder of Scotland. Monday 28th January & Tuesday 29th January. 8pm - Eden Court Theatre, Inverness Wednesday 30th January, 7.30pm - The Music Hall,Aberdeen Thursday 31st January, 7.30pm - Rothes Halls, Glenrothes Friday 1st February, 8,00pm - Tron Theatre, Glasgow, as part of Celtic Connections Saturday 2nd February 8,00pm - Queens Hall, Edinburgh Sunday 3rd February, 7.30pm - Dundee Rep,Dundee
