"Those fatties sure love their food" was a comment I overheard in a restaurant last week from a women sitting behind me as she glanced over to a table...
We dug up some of the most recently published works (all in 2015) on the perks of a persistent yoga practice.
Technology is the tool people with diabetes and the people supporting them can use to enact change. Technology affords better patient-doctor connections, actionable data, and education, via remote patient monitoring and "instant" data transfer.
My parents have been through hell and back during the past two years. My dad was diagnosed with non-smoking lung cancer during the fall of 2013.
Obesity was messing with my "you can do anything you set your mind to" theory. On weight loss, I felt like Sisyphus from Greek mythology, who was punished by the gods by pushing a boulder up a hill each day and then having the boulder roll back down. Forever.
It's possible that alkaline water could offer some benefits, to some people, in certain circumstances. But until we learn more, I suggest you save your money: Stick to tap water most of the time.
Mindfulness is more than a great way to get healthy and stay healthy. It's a process of discovery -- full of solace and revelation. And your relationships, your work and your play will all benefit.
More than 6.5 million American children live in food deserts.

While these big-money packaged food leaders seemingly want to promote cutting calories, my hope is that one day they will want to promote something that is not just a healthier option (as in less dangerous) but is truly healthy.
These disempowering messages push us toward patient-hood. It is not health news. It is sick news. We do not have a health care system. We have a sick care system. Disease is the doctor's domain, not health, if health is more than the absence of disease.
They're the windows to the soul, the limpid pools in which we drown in each other's gaze -- all that good stuff. But it's the 21st century; haven't we figured out anything else the eyes are good for? You know, besides seeing?
We are sold the idea that remaining slim is primarily important as a means of attracting the opposite sex, rather than as a path to good health and longevity.
