Study: Eye Training Doesn’t Help Dyslexia in Kids

Eye training or other vision therapies will not treat dyslexia in children.
Researchers tested more than 5,000 children between the ages of seven and nine for a variety of vision problems.
The three percent of the kids tested who had dyslexia showed difficulty in reading, but had little other differences in their vision than children without dyslexia.
The team reports about 80 percent of the dyslexic children had fully normal vision and eye function.
The findings confirm what many eye doctors have known for a long time.
Health experts say while this study’s findings are not new, this review is much larger than previous ones adding to the evidence that dyslexia has nothing to do with the eyes.
Further research will be needed to find an exact cause.
Pizza Hut is removing artificial ingredients, colors and flavors from all of its pizza recipes by the end of July.
The pizza chain’s parent company, Yum! Brands, says its Taco Bell stores will follow suit with a similar move.
Pizza Hut CEO David Gibbs says the change is due to customer demand.
You may not only show happiness – you may smell it, too.
A team of European researchers conducted a series of experiments showing people a variety of pictures to evoke different emotions.
They say happiness may generate chemicals in your sweat that when sniffed by others around us trigger happiness.
The team says we not only breathe in the upbeat emotions of others, but when we do, we become happier ourselves.
Study authors say sweat didn’t always produce that contagious response in the person smelling it.
For example, those smellers who verbalized a pleasant or intense reaction to a sweat sample didn’t show those reactions in their facial expressions.
Further research is needed to find out what the nature of the happiness chemical compound in sweat is.
