The quest to save diagnosis in Texas is off to a promising start. With the 85th Texas Legislature Session winding down this week, Senate Bill 304 was passed by the Texas House after navigating through the Senate earlier this month and awaits final sign-off from the Senate. The last step in the process is a signature from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott. SB 304, known as the Sunset bill, extends the regulation of chiropractors by the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners (TBCE) until 2029.

A new brain scan study suggests that people whose brains are wired to produce a more muted response to food may ultimately compensate by eating more, thereby raising their risk for obesity. The new study also unearthed possible evidence of a gender divide in the way men and women process the experience of eating. Women’s brains, it appears, may favor a more emotional response to the eating experience, while men are built to focus on how food satisfies the senses. \If so, such brain-wiring differences might explain why women struggle with weight more than men do, the researchers said.
