It should be possible to say that, as a first step toward ending this shameful chapter in our country's history, we should continue with the movement toward the decriminalization of marijuana. And we should also be able to say that as we decriminalize, we should take every step possible to minimize the harm, since there is scientific evidence of the dangers of pot on adolescents and young adults.
Mammowhat?! Mammogram? Me? But I'm a man! And at 67? Is this some really, really weird dream I'm about to wake up from? How in God's name were they going to do a mammogram when there's practically no mam on my chest?
I've learned that there are certain foods that produce and nourish "friendly" bacteria and others that help eliminate the unfriendly bacteria that might be making it difficult for you to lose weight.
"You can say no," I find myself saying to family after family. Which is kind of an amazing thing to have to say, if you think about it
Sometimes life -- in this case, nature -- has a way of redirecting us. It tells us that the universe has greater plans for us and where we are meant to grow. It gives us a different environment to thrive, with ideal conditions to make us our best self.
Strides are an easy and effective way to increase your speed. By adding strides to your workout two or three times a week, you can begin to see some big changes in turnover (foot speed) and performance.
I searched Twitter for "narcolepsy" and found what has since been the key to my coping process: a community.
Believe me, I am not diminishing my work as a mother. I am not pretending that my son is just like everyone else. But when we glorify his friends, or his mother, or his one-day prom date, we imply that he is less-than.
Hearing about what's going on in Missouri just baffles me. I am in full support of the prescription drug monitoring program, and am unsure why one state out of 50 is giving so much push back.
The health of our teeth is important and it starts with the foods that we eat.
I realize nothing can replace a face-to-face goodbye. But I believe the digital clues I've been able to piece together give me the memories I need, and I'm grateful that I was able to witness his life -- even in death.
Unduly provocative headlines based on inconclusive science work against what should be one of our country's most important public health goals -- getting people to move and exercise more.
It's hard to imagine the law's vocal supporters intended that it would result in student boycotts of school lunches, higher meal prices, food wasted or discarded and school districts scrambling to identify funds to comply with unfunded regulations.

That makes them less likely to maintain the necessary routines in the first place, which sets up a vicious cycle.
Anna is concerned about her memory. It seems she's having a lot of 'senior moments' lately. She often misplaces her keys and has trouble remembering the names of people to whom she's been introduced. She can't help but worry it could be something more serious. In fact, she is nearly paralyzed by the fear that she may be developing Alzheimer's.

Last week, Arianna Huffington wrote about what happens when you type "why am" into Google's search engine and allow it to autocomplete your sentence.
