With 70 percent of maternal and child deaths now concentrated in just 15 countries, health investments that include sanitation, education, contraception, infrastructure and women's incomes can potentially double their impact on lives saved.
A big part of this running thing is mental, so be confident in the foods you use to fuel your feet. Stop thinking "diet" and start thinking "nutrition." You can certainly try someone else's running meal plan that appeals to you, but empower yourself to make it your own.
Let the parsing continue, for that competition is healthy if it helps us do something about the residual 20 percent of all chronic disease we don't already know how to prevent. But let us not squander what we do know while working to learn what we don't.
Big Soda might have said: "We know you are getting fat and sick, and feel we are implicated; but frankly, we don't give a damn as long as you are foolish enough to keep buying what we sell." Actually, that would have been refreshingly honest.

A study out last week in the top-tier journal Nature told us that non-caloric artificial sweeteners (NAS) may contribute to glucose intolerance by mucking up our microbiomes. That's a serious indictment, since these products are intended to help defend against glucose intolerance, and other ills related to diabetes risk and weight gain.
This study shows quite nicely that non-caloric sweeteners can alter gut microbes in mice -- a change that has negative metabolic consequences -- and provides preliminary evidence that it can happen in humans too.

Why do we need the labels? The second we're judging someone as not vegan enough or devout enough we're focusing on exclusion, and that to me isn't healthy.
