“Only a few know, how much one must know to know how little one knows.”-Werner Heisenberg
The theory of knowledge is the philosophical discipline that deals with knowledge understood as a relation between subject and object. It is also called epistemology.
“Human truth is fleeting when we turn it into absolute and eternal ceases to be a truth.” – Dr. Ricardo Kotliroff
Today an internal realism is considered as an analytic-synthetic continuum, scientific induction-paradigm, as a complex system, which speaks of the real system as a world, but always within the framework of certain concepts, sets of beliefs and commitments.
“The description of reality is always an approximation.” – Dr. Ricardo Kotliroff
Greatest Minds-Werner Heisenberg: the principle of uncertainty states that it is impossible to accurately measure the position and linear momentum of a particle simultaneously.

In particle physics, quarks are massive elemental fermions that strongly interact to form nuclear matter and certain types of particles called hadrons. Several species of quarks can combine to form subatomic particles, such as protons and neutrons.
The nuclei of the #atoms are formed by #protons and #neutrons, and these in turn by smaller #particles called #quarks. #Premilife Dr.Ricardo Kotliroff
Each atom is composed of a nucleus and one or more electrons attached to the nucleus. The nucleus is composed of one or more protons and typically a similar number of neutrons. Protons and neutrons are called nucleons. More than 99.94% of the mass of the atom is in the nucleus.
All #LivingBeings are made up of #atoms. Without them, #life would not exist as we know it. #Premilife Dr.Ricardo Kotliroff
Link energy is the potential energy stored in the chemical bonds of a compound. Chemical reactions release or absorb this kind of energy, depending on the enthalpy and caloric energy.
Every day we exchange matter and energy with our environment to #StayAlive. Throughout our lives from birth to death for the normal functioning of all our #VitalProcesses we need a supply and a constant balance of energy
Energy is a property of physical systems, it is not a real physical state, nor an “intangible substance”. However, there are those who, like Wilhelm Ostwald, have considered energy to be truly real, since, according to the equation of equivalence, the mass that is the measure of the quantity of matter can be transformed into energy and vice versa.
We’re focusing on the energy of the body, and the energies of disease. #Premilife Dr.Ricardo Kotliroff
Greatest Minds-Edward Witten: he contributed to the theory of quantum chromodynamics, which describes a strong interaction as one of the fundamental forces. The character of the strong interaction is determined by a special symmetry between the color charges of the quarks.

Greatest Minds-Stephen Hawking: he worked on the basic laws that govern the universe, along with Roger Penrose, and he showed that Einstein’s general theory of relativity implies that space and time must have a beginning in the big bang and an end within black holes.
The universe, according to quantum physics, has no single past, or history. The fact that the past takes no definite form means that observations you make on a system in the present affect its past.” – Stephen Hawking
Quantum Biology is the branch of Biology that studies processes that take place in living beings, based on characteristic effects of quantum mechanics, such as superposition of states, quantum coherence or tunnel effect.
#QuantumBiology refers to applications of #QuantumMechanics and theoretical chemistry to biological objects and problems. Example of #QuantumPhenomena in #BiologicalSystems is the conversion of #ChemicalEnergy into motion
From a Biology standpoint, life implies the capacities to be born, to grow, to metabolize, to respond to external stimuli, to reproduce and to die.
The intermediate level, the chords and tempos, has to do with how the biochemistry and biophysics are organized, arranged, played out in space and time to produce a creature who grows and divides and is. Ursula Goodenough
From a Biology standpoint, life refers to that which distinguishes the animal, plant, fungi, protists, archaea and bacterial kingdoms from the rest of the natural realities.

The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless. Steven Weinberg
Greatest Minds-Edward Witten: a string can do something besides move, it can oscillate in different ways. If it oscillates in a certain way, then, subatomically we would see an electron, but if it oscillates in another way, then we would see a photon, or a quark, or any other particle of the standard model.
String theory-We know a lot of things, but what we don’t know is a lot more. Edward Witten
Greatest Minds-Edward Witten: an electron is not a “point” without internal structure and zero dimension, but a type of tiny string that vibrates in a space-time of more than three dimensions. The universe has eleven dimensions.
Spreading out the particle into a string is a step in the direction of making everything we’re familiar with fuzzy. You enter a completely new world where things aren’t at all what you’re used to. Edward Witten
What did Edward Witten think? String theory assumes that material particles, seemingly punctual, are actually “vibrational states” of a more basic extended object called “string” or “filament”
If I take the theory, as we have it now, I would conclude that extra dimensions really exist. They’re part of nature. We don’t really know how big they are yet, but we hope to explore that in various ways. Edward Witten

“In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.” Albert Einstein
For Popper, contrasting a theory means trying to refute it by means of a counterexample. If it is not possible to refute it, this theory is corroborated, being able to be accepted provisionally, but not verified. That is to say, no theory is absolutely true, but at the most it is not refuted.
“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” Albert Einstein
The discoveries of modern physics, especially quantum mechanics and the uncertainty principle, prove that the existence of such an intellect – Laplace’s demon – is impossible at least in principle.

#Body content corresponds to those #physical and #psychological #perceptions we have of ourselves, also encompasses our ability to establish #relationships with #people, whether it be #friendly or #affective. #Premilife
Obese people, in terms of body schema, have some concern and dissatisfaction with their physical appearance, altering their own perception, so that it underestimates how their own body is perceived. #Premilife
These three spheres – form, content, and meaning,- are closely related to how an individual perceives its #BodyImage, something much more conflictive in #obese individuals.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Among #PsychologicalAlterations frequently found in #obese people, we can include those related to the #perception of #BodyImage and #EatingDisorders. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#HumanBody-The fundamental characteristic was #ambivalence. The body can have a #SymbolicValue defined as #beautiful, or horrible and impure #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Throughout history, the perception of the reality of the #HumanBody and its symbolic and moral value has changed between different cultures. The fundamental characteristic was ambivalence. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#LowCaloric diets are not effective as a treatment for obesity, individuals often regain their #LostWeight, because they feel #guilty, embarrassed, and criticized for their failure they develop other #psychopathologies
#SocialPressure is one of the main problems the #obese face and can trigger related #psychopathies. Developing #PsychologicalProblems will depend on their #MedicalHistory and their previous #conflicts. #Premilife
The perception of #obesity by the current society which demands certain #BeautyStandards can cause problems in #relationships with others, obstacles in job search and looking for a romantic partner #DrRicardoKotliroff
Although no #PersonalityDisorder has been directly related to #obesity the obese may develop #PsychologicalProblems capable of affecting quality of life and #InterpersonalRelationships. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Family and #SocioculturalFactors influence early #addiction to #food. According to this model, from the obese’s perspective of #FoodDependence, it forms a part of its (lifestyle).#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Obesity #AddictivePersonality: #Food, in this case, can become an element that generates #dependency, and obesity in a person who is unaware of its own limits in terms of food.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
The #AddictivePersonality is one that not only has a physical and chemical need, but also an #EmotionalState related to #ChemicalFactors connected to the feelings and #BiologicalNeeds of each individual. #Premilife
Some authors have dared to talk about an #AddictivePersonality associated with obesity, by finding common factors in obese people, similar to those found in addicts and patients with chronic diseases.#DrRicardoKotliroff
Multiple studies, however, have identified 3-10 #personality subtypes among #obese individuals, without a unique personality type or #PersonalityDisorder related specifically to it. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
The diversity of #personality profiles among the patients that suffer from #obesity has also been an obstacle when assessing the #PsychologicalFactors that influence them. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Psychology is an important area in the life of every #HumanBeing, and it must be considered in all #MedicalTreatments, especially in complex and #ChronicDiseases. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
It has been concluded that #obesity can reduce at least 2-4 years of the #AverageLife, while severe obesity can decrease it by up to 10 years.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Moderately #ObeseWomen, a #BMI among 30-34, were 44% more likely to #die, and those #women with #SevereObesity, a BMI among 35-39, were 88% more likely to #die prematurely.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Overweight #women, a #BMI among 25-30, #PrematureDeath was related to this condition, with this group being 13% more likely to #die. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
To establish a relationship between #obesity and #PrematureDeath, the average #LifeExpectancy of the population should be calculated and then compared to the life expectancy of the #obese. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#SelfEsteem #WellBeing and #schooling, among others, often deteriorate in obese people. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
In young #women, it has been possible to demonstrate the existence of a relation between #obesity and #depression, since the greater the #BMI, the more affected their #SelfEsteem is. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Often, because of the lack of #SocialAcceptance towards #overweight people, #obese people are often excluded or rejected because of their #PhysicalAppearance. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Many #obese people who undergo surgical procedures that reduce their weight significantly can lose considerable #BoneMass density, becoming a risk factor for the appearance of #osteoporosis#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Today, several studies have shown both an increase and a decrease in #BodyWeight may influence the onset of #osteoporosis. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Just like #obesity, #osteoporosis is a #ChronicDisease that affects body composition and can trigger increased #morbidity and #mortality in those who have it. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Osteoporosisn is usually higher in the onset of #diseases, such as #diabetes, #arthritis, #RheumatoidArthritis, #Cushing’s disease, #kidney and #LiverDiseases, and #lymphomas. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Osteoporosis affects #BoneDensity, making them more fragile and easy to break. Increased levels of #fat in the #BoneMarrow, where #bone tissue is generated, can lead to #osteoporosis. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Osteoarthritis is a problem caused by the wear of the tissue that protects certain #joints due to the excessive #weight exerted on them affecting mainly the #knees, #hips, and #LowerBack, causing #pain #Premilife
It is very common for #obese women to give #birth through cesarean sections, which reduce certain risk factors during labor for both the mother and the baby such as complications due to high #BloodPressure #Premilife
Obesity has been linked to several alterations in the female #ReproductiveSystem, among them risks during pregnancy, the onset of #GestationalDiabetes, and #FetalMortality in the last two-quarters of pregnancy #Premilife
There is a greater chance that #overweight people will have #gallbladder complications. Sometimes, gallbladder dysfunction and an abnormal increase in size may occur. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
The #gallbladder is a small sac located under the #liver that stores the #bile produced in the organ and carries it to the small #intestine it can be affected by #overweight #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
In #FattyLiver, when numerous lesions and scarring occur in the liver that prevents it from functioning normally, #cirrhosis, a very serious disease that can lead to #LiverCancer, occurs.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#ChildhoodObesity can lead to #PsychologicalDisorders. Parents should take care of the good #nutrition of children to increase their health and quality of life in the future. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Obesity- #ChildhoodObesity can present future risks for #children who suffer from it, as #ObeseChildren suffer from #obesity and #disability in their adulthood.#Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Obesity- In #women, those who are #obese are up to three times more likely to have #UterineCancer than women of normal weight. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Obesity- One of the causes for which #tumors originate in the #DigestiveTract is due to the reflux of #GastricJuice to the #esophagus, very common in #obese people. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Obesity-In women #patients with a #BMI higher than 40 it has been found that the risk of having #uterine and #BreastCancer is up to 50% higher than in people with a normal #weight. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
In 2012, there were 8 million deaths caused by cancer and 14 million new cases It is predicted that in the next 15 years new cancers will increase to 70% and deaths from cancer will increase to 13 million #Premilife
In those patients with a #BMI higher than 40 it has been found that the risk of having #cancer of the #rectum, #colon, #liver, #esophagus, #kidney, #pancreas, #gallbladder, uterine and #BreastCancer is up to 50% higher.
#Obesity has been associated with the appearance of some types of #cancer which range from 7-41% of the emergence of #EndometrialCancer, #ColonCancer, and BreastCancer, for example. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
#Hyperlipemia Blood tests often give the result of high concentration of #triglycerides or “bad” fats and a low concentration of “good” cholesterol, which can trigger #CardiovascularDiseases #Premilife Dr.#R.Kotliroff
#Obesity – #Hyperlipemia comprises high concentrations of #fats and #lipids in the #blood. This condition is common in #patients suffering from #obesity. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
Type 2 Diabetes-In this type the body can produce #insulin to control blood #SugarLevels. As the disease goes on, using insulin becomes inefficient and the body can no longer control #GlucoseConcentrations #Premilife
#Obesity -Those with a BMI higher than 32 are at higher risk of #diabetes than those with a BMI of 20-22. #Premilife #DrRicardoKotliroff
