The big question is, how? The even bigger question is, how do we find peace in love? Is it an illusion? Does it really exist? Let's think about it for a moment.
The more Couric dug into the topic -- for herself, her family, and her audience -- the more she realized that the most essential and scientific truths about the drivers of obesity and disease simply were not reaching the American population.
All research starts with biased funders and researchers -- because in the absence of such bias, it would be research no one would bother doing. I don't think anyone runs studies in the absence of hopes and preferences pertaining to the outcomes.
Three years ago when I started blogging about the empty nest I had no idea what I was doing. I had given up on finding a job after a year of searching, and wanted to start writing -- something I'd always loved to do. I never imagined the people, opportunities and experiences my blog would bring into my life.
Breeding pigs spend most of their lives in crates only inches larger than their bodies. Crushing boredom and depression cause compulsive behaviors like head-banging. Do you really want your choices to support such a system?
The one common denominator that links the old Sarah Palin with the new isn't her political ideology (she has none), it's her blatant opportunism. Sarah Palin has always been about Sarah Palin.

By all means, see the film Fed Up, if you haven't. If you aren't yet fed up with the toxic quagmire that is the typical American diet, there's a good chance it will get you there.
The U.S. government plays both sides of the obesity street -- admonishing people to eat right while pushing the foods that make them fat -- because of the USDA's double mission of protecting the nation's health and protecting the health of the nation's farmers.
Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Belle's lineage affords he...
The idea that a calorie is a calorie, that everybody should just eat less and exercise more and that if you're overweight it's simply a matter of willpower -- all the stuff we've all come to accept as medial fact over the last few years -- is thrown out by the panel of experts in Fed Up.
What does it mean when the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the world's packaged food and drink industry, puts out a defensive press release about a documentary before it is released? I'd say it means they are scared, and, after viewing the new film Fed Up, I can understand why.
There's a new documentary out that aims to prove that "everything we've been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong." Tha...
