To Be Healthy Is to Be Loving

I went for a run because I had eaten a small, organic, dark chocolate cookie the day before and I felt that I had to punish myself. It was habitual for me to punish myself with strenuous, caloric compensation cardio whenever I felt guilty for enjoying life by eating tasty foods. When I placed first in a fitness competition, my fitness goals went up a notch. Winning the competition was one thing, but people complimenting me on my extra lean body pressured me to stay that way. I couldn’t allow myself to look “bigger” again, and “bigger” really meant not seeing my defined ab muscles. It was a sunny Sunday afternoon just after midday when I went for that run. Cresting a hill in the park, I came across a family outing. The adults were talking and laughing, and the kids were playing with a ball. They had bagels, cakes, sodas, and fried foods set around an improvised table. The family members were all overweight; some were even obese. Out of breath from the incline of the hill, my body slowed but my thoughts sped up. Look at them! These people should be ashamed of themselves. All fat, and they come to the park just to eat more fatty foods. They should be exercising, restricting their diets. How irresponsible. These judgments were quickly succeeded by a stream of thoughts that sprang up in my mind one after another, like weeds. I don’t like having to run; why did I eat that cookie? I wish I had friends and family to be with right now. My knee hurt...

Optimal nutrition is crucial for honey bee colony growth and robust immune systems. Honey bee nutrition is complex and depends on the floral composition of the landscape. Foraging behavior of honey bees depends on both colony environment and external environment. There are significant gaps in knowledge regarding honey bee nutrition, and hence no optimal diet is available for honey bees, as there is for other livestock. In this review, we discuss (1) foraging behavior of honey bees, (2) nutritional needs, (3) nutritional supplements used by beekeepers, (4) probiotics, and (5) supplemental forage and efforts integrating flor...

Menopause is a universal experience for midlife women. The physiological decline in endogenous estrogen can be associated with vasomotor symptoms or hot flashes, sleep disruption, and mood disorders. Long-term concerns arise with sequelae of estrogen loss such as genitourinary syndrome of menopause and osteoporosis. Although the pendulum has swung widely since the 1942 approval of conjugated equine estrogens, estrogen therapy, now available in an ever-expanding menu of preparations, routes of administration, and dosing, remains the most effective means to collectively address these, and potentially, additional concerns. Re...

Testing for celiac disease is an appropriate diagnostic step in patients presenting with chronic diarrhea and or abdominal pain.1 Patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and negative celiac tests frequently will attempt a gluten free diet (GFD) nonetheless with varying success. In this issue of Clinical Gastroenterology&Hepatology, Pinto-Sanchez and colleagues provide data to guide recommendations regarding a GFD in patients with IBS.2 They tested for anti-gliadin antibodies in 50 patients with IBS diagnosed base on ROME III criteria.

In the wake of multiple legal challenges, the Biden Administration late last month aimed to fortify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with a new rule that would shield more than 600,000 undocumented people brought to the U.S. by their parents. While proponents of the program welcomed the move and heralded it an “effort to bulletproof the DACA program,” our response in this moment overlooks a fundamental problem: each challenge on immigration—whether the Muslim Ban, family separation, or challenging DACA—takes a toll on refugee and migrants through vicarious trauma and weather...
