The study, published online today in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, focused on people in the Weight Loss Maintenance Trial, devised to test the effectiveness of various long-term weight loss interventions.

When President Bush ignored the public's demand for park protection and made the decision to allow snowmobiles back into the park in even larger numbers than before, many of us promised to work even harder to protect the park and its wildlife.
