Bulking and Cutting, A Pitfall of Society

Diet culture is pretty much the lifestyle among health-conscious youth. This does come with its dangers as extreme diets like Bulking and Cutting can lead to eating disorders and body dysmorphia.

Bulking and Cutting diet involves an alternative period of caloric surplus i.e. bulking and caloric restriction i.e. cutting. A recent study found links between bulk and cut diet with psychological factors like anorexia, body dysmorphia, and drive for muscularity.

Survey Highlights

  • Out of all the 2,762 participants, half of them were young men, and one in five were women, transgender, and gender non-conforming (TGNC) individuals.
  • Men participated in bulk and cut cycles almost twice as often as women and TGNC individuals.
  • Conversely, women and TGNC individuals were able to complete more bulk and cut cycles than men.
  • TGNC participants were only linked with muscle dysmorphia while others correlated with anorexia and body dysmorphia.

Future Implications of Bulking and Cutting

Doctors fear that dietary practices such as bulk and cut and many other extreme diets are prevalent on a larger scale than the study could comprehend. It is scary to think that a simple weight loss tactic can potentially overlap with serious mental and behavioral health conditions.

  • Vaccine strategy for HIV: If all goes well with this research, it will single-handedly tame an elusive virus like HIV. Researchers have discovered a vaccine strategy that might keep HIV at bay.
  • Engineered Mosquitoes: Scientists have come up with a engineered mosquito that is technically incapable of spreading malaria. It slows down malaria-causing parasites in their gut which prevents further transmission to humans.



Alive Without A Heart

A spine-chilling recovery story of Dzhana Simmons, who suffered from a condition that weakened her heart which results in her heart pumping insufficient blood. Here's how her recovery went:

  • She was recommended to undergo heart transplant surgery. What seemed to be an obvious surgery for her condition, did her no good as the heart transplant failed.
  • She was then given an artificial heart as a replacement for her own heart. An artificial heart is not used as a replacement but to support a weakened heart, but in her case, she lived with an artificial heart for 118 days at the age of 14.
  • She finally underwent another heart transplant which seemed to normalize her condition, but her ability to live without a heart still stuns the doctors. She is the youngest person who was kept alive in this manner.
