  1. Indonesian teenager to have excess skin removed after obesity treatment https://www.asiaone.com/asia/indonesian-teenager-have-excess-skin-removed-after-obesity-treatment Thirteen-year-old Arya Permana from Karawang, West Java, after years of treatment for obesity, has been declared ready for plastic surgery to reduce his sagging skin as a result of massive weight loss. The surgery for Arya, who was once one of the heaviest children in the world, is scheduled to take place in the next two weeks at the Hasan Sadikin General Hospital (RSHS) in Bandung. "We plan to conduct the surgery in five stages," the hospital's nutrition and metabolic specialist and pediatrician Tisnasari Hafsah, a member of the team of doctors in charge of the boy's treatment, said on Wednesday. Arya weighed 189.6 kilograms at 147 centimeters in height when he was first admitted to the hospital at the age of 10 for a weight-loss programme. He underwent bariatric surgery at Omni Hospital in Jakarta in June 2017. He is now 87 kg, leaving parts of his skin sagging, especially on his belly, arms and thighs. "I am happy. The doctors say parts of my skin will be removed. The surgery will last four to five hours," Arya said while undergoing a health check at the hospital on Wednesday. Thanks to the weight-loss programme, Arya can currently join physical activities with his friends. Previously, he could only lie face down while playing games. RSHS president director Ayi Djembarsari said the obesity of Arya, who hails from Pasir Piring village in Cipurwasari subdistrict, Tegalwaru district, was an interesting case in the medical world. "We are trying to reduce his weight in a short time and, of course, it has to be closely monitored," Ayi said. The hospital's medical and nursing director, Nucki Nursjamsi Hidajat, said Arya was once recorded as one of the 10 most obese children in the world. Another member of Arya's team of doctors, Viramitha Kusnandi Rusmil, said Arya needed a series of preparations to undergo the plastic surgery, so that he would have an ideal body mass index (BMI). "This is a case of super obesity. Arya ideally should be 61 kg in weight. We will know how much the weight loss is only after the surgery," said Viramitha, adding that the surgery would be done when Arya reached 80 kg. Arya's mother Rokayah said the plastic surgery might be covered by the Health Care and Social Security Agency.

    Irvins Salted Egg

    This morning while at Plaza Singapura with my family, we saw a queue line at level 6 along the Yamaha shops while the rest of PS was still quite empty. Curious, we went up to see what these people were queuing for... and it was for Irvins Salted Egg potato chips and fish skin! So how do you find their products? Super delicious and definitely worth the hype, or overrated and overpriced? Official website: https://irvinsaltedegg.com/

    3M Car Skin

    Saw this in a mag, seems impressive. Anyone tried it? It protects the vehicle paintwork from scratches and damage from daily wear and tear. It is also easy to clean and made of a material that is resistant to scratches, tears, mid alkali, mild acid, salts and water*. To keep your car looking new, protect its paintwork with 3M car skin. Made of high-tech film materials, this durable and scratch resistant stick-on protective layer can be applied to both the exterior and interior. Something like sealant but its a stick on. Hoping for reviews before i touch up my scratches and put this on.

  17. For those of you who are trying to convince your CO to let you do VKool tinting. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6320405.stm --------------------------- Car drivers 'risking skin cancer' Cancer risk went up with the number of hours at the wheel Drivers who spend a lot of time behind the wheel increase their risk of skin cancer, US work suggests. Experts say repeated sun exposure through the car's side windows is to blame, and drivers who roll down the window are at even greater risk. Most glass used for windows blocks UVB rays that cause sunburn but not deeper penetrating UVA rays. The Saint Louis University School of Medicine team presented their work to the American Academy of Dermatology. Exposure They looked at 898 patients (559 men and 339 women) with skin cancers occurring on either side of their body. Among the men, the rate of cancers directly correlated to the areas of the body most often exposed to UV radiation while driving - which in the US is the left-hand side of the body. Although glass greatly reduces the risk of sunburn, it does not prevent long term damage from UVA Cancer Research UK Many of these tumours were cancers that develop over time and are linked to cumulative sun exposure rather than intense, intermittent sun exposure. They affected sun-exposed areas like the head, neck, arms and hands. Lead author Dr Scott Fosko said: "This finding supports our theory that drivers who regularly spend more time in the car over the course of several years are more likely to develop skin cancers on the left side of the body, particularly skin cancers that develop gradually over time." Windows open Dr Fosko's team is now starting to gather detailed information on the driving habits of the skin cancer patients they see in their clinic. Initial data shows that those who spend the most time per week driving a car are more likely to develop left-sided cancers. "We're also finding that all drivers who occasionally drive with the windows open had a higher incidence of left-sided cancers," Dr Fosko said. He added: "Since there are more cars on the road than ever before, it is likely that this trend will continue. And with more women driving...higher reports of left-sided skin cancers in women in the future." Harmful rays Most windscreens, unlike the side windows of a car, are made of laminated glass that can filter both UVB and UVA. Dr Fosko suggested tinting the side window glass or using UV filters on windows might help reduce a driver's risk of harmful exposure. Cancer Research UK advises: "Although glass greatly reduces the risk of sunburn, it does not prevent long term damage from UVA. "So if you are driving long distances or sitting in your conservatory every day for long periods of time, with the sun beaming in on you, then you are putting yourself at risk." But Josephine Querido, cancer information officer for the charity, stressed this did not necessarily mean that you would get skin cancer. "In terms of the amount of UV sunlight people are exposed to during the course of a year, the amount received through car windows is likely to be a very small percentage. "It is important to take care whenever you are exposed to the sun, to know your skin type, and, above all, never burn as this can double your risk of getting skin cancer," she said.
