It’s a start of a new semester and a new year, and the return of students to Queen’s has been heralded by the fall of fresh white snow blanketing the campus. This crystalline transformation is a physical manifestation of the blank slate that a new year represents; an opportunity to resolve to make a change for the better. Some of these resolutions may have fallen to the wayside already (I for one have not held to my resolution to exercise more, but who was I kidding really?), but some of us still hold steadfast. After all with the ushering in of a new year comes newfound motivation to be more productive, exercise more, or to lose some of that weight gained after feasting during the holidays. One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, be that through exercise or through dieting. Unfortunately, there are many dangers associated with diets, some widely publicized, and some less known. In fact, sometimes dieting can even be fatal, as in the Terri Schiavo case.
