The Risks of MDMA

ABSTRACT

                 The substance abused within the varying cultures of the world reflect the individual promotions inherent within each of these populations. A new epidemic has emerged, especially amongst the millennial generation, where party drugs and feel good music have laid a platform for risky, indulgent behaviors. Molly, otherwise known as MDMA, is a pure form of ecstasy. The notion behind molly is that the lack of other potentially harmful cutter drugs which typically lace ecstasy to give an enhanced effect, whether speed, methamphetamine, or other dangerous stimulants, makes molly safe for use.

Signal Transduction Hypothesis

This week’s discussion article is a second research paper based on the adaptations to exercise observed through signaling pathways. The hypothesis behind this research was that free radicals that are generated during exercise promote the observed exercise-induced adaptations. Although there was initial evidence to support this hypothesis, the research indicated that the hypothesis was only partially correct. (more…)

The Genetic of Sports Injuries and Athletic Performance

          The article “The genetics of sports injuries and athletic performance” was originally synthesized for the purpose of identifying genetic components related to the susceptibility of tendon injuries and enhanced athletic performance. Researchers used PubMed in their evidence collection by searching key terms such as “sports injuries”, “athletic performance”, and “genetics.” (more…)

The hypothesis behind this research was that free radicals that are generated during exercise promote the observed exercise-induced adaptations.

The Central Nervous System & Fatigue Recovery

High-intensity intermittent sprint intervals result in high physiological, metabolic, and neuromuscular demands. Often this type of exercise is accompanied by reversible declines in the force production of the muscles as they contract at or near maximal capacity. This fatigue can be defined as the reversible, exercise-induced reduction in maximal power output or speed. (more…)

Heat Acclimatization to Improve Athletic Performance in Warm-Hot Weather

            This week’s article covers homeostasis and the constancy of the internal environment. Several natural phenomena can override even the most stable dynamic system. One of those phenomena is heat, particularly warm-hot weather. Homeostatic mechanisms are built in as control systems, allowing negative and positive feedback signals to either reduce the intensity of an affect and completely eliminate it, or to enhance an affect.

An hour of moderate exercise a day enough to counter health risks from prolonged sitting.

Research has long proven that one’s occupational activity level is closely related to health and mortality rates. For those whom sit at a desk all day, posture is only one aspect of physical health that suffers. The activity level required by an occupation has been researched for the negative or positive implications of increased or decreased activity requirements. (more…)

Obesity Prevention and Physical Activity Review Paper

Obesity affects every continent on the planet. From the tip of the North Pole to the equator to the edge of the South Pole, it is prevalent. Humans are naturally wired to store fat. Our bodies have an unlimited capacity to store fuel into our adipose tissue. More and more adipocytes are able to be created. However, haven’t we gone far enough? (more…)
