How We Make Moral Decisions

Nina Wang | March 2, 2015 | Science
The concept of humans as rational beings whose actions are driven primarily by logic and reason needs to go -- our cognitive resources are more limited than we think, and we take shortcuts through reasoning more often than we know.

My Sister's Unpredictable Life

Danielle Posa | March 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
My family and I beg her to come home. We selfishly want her to be back in New York, or at least I do. I want to see her more. I want my friends to meet her, and hear all the interesting things she knows. And yet, in my heart I know that she should stay... at least for now.

To Cheat or Not to Cheat: Negotiating Weight Loss, Long-Term

Stacey Morris | March 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
Conventional wisdom says that things like pizza, fried chicken, ice cream, and cake, are nutritionally vile and calorically offensive. Perhaps. But one thing I've learned about myself: I can't eat solely for nutrition all the time, just as I can no longer eat solely for pleasure as I once did.

My Milk Manifesto

David Katz, M.D. | March 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
We can take milk, or leave it. Take milk fat, or leave that. Either way, we can have a good diet of wholesome foods in sensible combinations -- or not. But either way, we need to take seriously the reverberations of our dietary choices across the landscape of a shrinking planet, and the legacy of kindness or cruelty by which history will be invited to judge us.

What I Tell Parents Who Ask Me About Alternate Vaccine Schedules

Claire McCarthy, M.D. | March 2, 2015 | Parents
So much of this is about trust: Helping families trust not just me, but all the research and science behind vaccines, helping them trust the people who truly are experts as opposed to the people who say they are, but aren't.

When we're confronted with news that could be good or bad, our minds tend to side with the bad. And the important thing to note is, we've programmed ourselves with this mindset of worry and fear.

Review: Do Your Om Thing

Lindsey Mead | March 2, 2015 | Books
Taking yoga beyond the physical poses is frankly hard, because the literature about yoga's traditions and philosophy is opaque and difficult and because, especially in these days, we are all more distracted than ever. In this book, Rebecca changes all of that.

Nina Teicholz, author of The Big Fat Surprise, wrote an op-ed in The New York Times entitled "The Government's Bad Diet Advice." Unfortunately for Times readers, the op-ed was packed with errors and distortions.

Why I'm Not Raising a 'Good Girl'

Galit Breen | March 2, 2015 | Parents
In the midst of young motherhood, I believed that having well-behaved kids, ones who didn't make waves, meant that I was being a good mom. And while I think that polite words and gentle hearts make the world go round, what changes the world, what also matters, is confidence.

Mark W. Guay | March 2, 2015 | Healthy Living
