Parker University’s president, Bill Morgan, DC, takes great pleasure in announcing the passage of Senate Bill 304, The Texas Chiropractic Board of Examiners (TBCE) Sunset Bill. This bill continues the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ authority to regulate chiropractic in Texas for twelve years. The bill also clarifies the authority of doctors of chiropractic to diagnose the biomechanical condition of the spine and musculoskeletal system. The bill eliminates the requirement that chiropractic facilities register with the TBCE and improves the TBCE’s complaint and investigation processes.

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.
