Perfect weight and gender discrimination


One of the most touching American business ideas is the thick goods stores, which sell rope loops that help to throw a foot in the car, scissors with meter handles for trimming toenails, supports for toilets (so as not to turn them out of the wall under their weight) ), extensions for aircraft and automobile seat belts and, of course, oversized coffins. Such shops are like the Nobel Prize: they first make you laugh, but then they make you think: in general, it’s very cool when society cares about the needs of each of its members (not to mention that such devices, with the exception of large coffins, are not useful only fat men, but also elderly or pregnant).
Nevertheless, it is clear that being very fat is bad. Firstly, morbid obesity is almost always associated with certain endocrine disorders - even if they were not the cause of weight gain, they will arise as a result of it. Secondly, it is difficult to carry this ballast on itself, and it repeatedly increases the load on the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems (and an insufficient blood supply can already disrupt anything.) In general, people with obesity are more likely (although not strictly guaranteed) gastrointestinal diseases, metabolic diseases, cardiovascular diseases, respiratory system diseases, diseases of the musculoskeletal system, some types of cancer (primarily digestive systems - this is associated with the abuse of fatty foods), urinary disorders, diseases of the nervous system, eye diseases, reduced quality of life and mental disorders. One of the most common health problems in fat people is type 2 diabetes. In this disease, the cells lose the ability to adequately respond to insulin and take glucose from the blood. As a result, the cells themselves starve, and the blood is viscous, sweet and sticky, which destroys the walls of blood vessels. 90% of people with type 2 diabetes are overweight.
Endocrine disorders are generally an interesting story. The fact is that adipose tissue is not just a stash of nutrients, a protective pillow for internal organs and a way to store water (especially if you are a camel), accumulate vitamins or immobilize toxic substances.
It is also an internal secretion organ. Adipose tissue is able to produce hormones itself, and their amount directly depends on the mass of fat accumulated in the body.
There is a difference between men and women. For men, fat is almost useless, but for women it is absolutely necessary. Leptin, the banal “hormone of satiety,” whose concentration in blood plasma directly depends on the amount of fat deposits in the body, is necessary to maintain the normal functioning of the female reproductive system. This has a biological meaning: if the supply of nutrients in the body is too low, then there are few chances for a successful pregnancy - especially in the wild with its irregular food intake. And therefore, if the level of leptin falls below a certain critical value (1.85 µg / l), the woman stops the menstrual cycle and the ability to conceive a child disappears23'24. Conversely, hypothalamic amenorrhea, in which the production of gonadotropic hormones in the central nervous system is impaired, is in many cases cured with leptin injections.
But that's not all. Adipose tissue also serves as an additional source of female sex hormones - estrogen. It works aromatase enzyme, which builds female sex hormones from androgens, male sex hormones. This is not very good even for a woman (on the one hand, extra estrogen released after menopause slightly reduces the risk of osteoporosis, 26 but on the other, increases the likelihood of developing breast cancer), but for a man there is no advantage at all in excess fat tissue. The transformation of male sex hormones into female hormones increases the likelihood of erectile dysfunction and disrupts the normal production of sperm. Moreover, the fat deposits in the lower abdomen also mechanically shorten the penis, they can drown a couple of centimeters of the working surface. In fact, the length of the penis does not matter for the quality of sex, the main erogenous zones of the vagina are still in the first third of it - but psychologically, it’s probably pleasant to play sports, knowing that this also increases the penis. And it is even more pleasant to tell a man who wants you to lose weight even more, that he himself is actually much more important to lose weight.

Perfect weight and gender discrimination

  1. Price discrimination
    Price discrimination is one way to expand the market in a monopoly environment. A monopolist that produces less and sells products at a higher price than under conditions of pure competition loses some of the potential buyers who are ready to purchase the goods if its price were lower than the monopoly price. However, reducing the price in order to expand sales, the monopolist
  2. Oligopolistic pricing and price discrimination in healthcare
    As noted above, the main sources of market power in health care are administrative barriers, and entry into the industry is limited by the state. The absence of more powerful reasons for increasing the market power of individual firms, the low degree of concentration of production leads to the fact that oligopolistic pricing mechanisms do not work. Similarity oligopolistic structure
  3. Extra weight - extra power consumption
    Nowadays, thanks to the efforts of “calories”, the basis of nutrition is still made up of foods rich in protein, mainly of animal origin. They are consumed, again in accordance with pseudoscientific recommendations, much more than is required for the organism. Hence, excessive body weight, which has become common. Digestion of high protein foods requires significantly larger

    Economic independence, equal opportunities with men to work and earn, to realize their professional interests and ambitions are in any country of the world the basis of gender equality. It was not by chance that in the mid-1990s, the talk in our country that the majority of Russian women tend to become housewives and abandon the Soviet model ceased
  8. Disorder of sexual function and disease of the male genital organs
    In manufacturing bulls, sexual dysfunction is most often associated with metabolic disorders and neuroendocrine regulation of sexual processes, manifested in a decrease in sexual activity, weakening or inhibition of sexual reflexes, spermogenesis, a decrease in the quantity and quality of sperm production, as well as inappropriate use and in some cases inflammatory processes in
  9. Sleep and overweight. The more you sleep, the better you lose weight!
    Usually, the main defendant in the obesity process is nutrition. Indeed, the food is fat, abundant, idle, of course, leads to extra pounds. But, as we have recently become clearer and clearer, the point here is not only in food. Or rather, the fatty food has accomplices. And one of these accomplices is a bad, short, inadequate sleep, lack of sleep. And it is revealed
  10. Nomogram to determine the ideal weight of the child
    {foto43} Scale H - height, scale W - body weight of the child, G - deviation from the ideal weight in percent. Connect the figure of height and the point “0” on the G scale with a ruler, then you will find the ideal child weight on the body mass scale. By connecting the value of height and real weight, find the percentage deviation from
  11. Sexually transmitted diseases of the female genital organs
    One of the negative phenomena of our modernity is the rapid increase in the frequency and number of sexually transmitted diseases. This is facilitated by changes in the orientation of young people's sexual behavior, the widespread use of contraceptives, the expansion of international tourism, prostitution, the resistance of pathogens to antibacterial agents and the absence of etiopathogenetic
  12. Stage 2. Compilation of psychological portraits of "good father" and "ideal man"
    Students carry out work on the compilation of psychological portraits of the "ideal man" and "good father." They are offered instructions: “Rank the qualities of personality proposed below, which characterize the“ ideal man ”. The ranking is carried out as follows. First, select the quality that you think is necessary for the “ideal man” to the greatest extent. Put the
  13. Surgery for genital, urinary and intestinal-genital fistulas
    Fistulas between the genital and adjacent organs in women are called genital. A more complete definition of fistulas includes the name of the organs between which they are formed. All fistulas can be divided into the following groups: genital (cervico-vaginal, uterine-vaginal); urinogenital (vesico-genital, ureteral-genital, urethro-genital); intestinal-sexual; combined (urinary-genital).
