Research Reveals Immunotherapy More Effective in Men
For mesothelioma patients, immunotherapy is mostly available through clinical trials at this time. Immunotherapy is a relatively new way to treat cancer, and doctors still are learning who will respond best to these novel therapies. Newly released medical research has found men seem to respond better to immunotherapy than women. But this doesn’t mean immunotherapy is off the table for women with mesothelioma. You should learn all you can about how immunotherapy works, why it may or may not be right for you and how you can best prepare yourself if you decide an immunotherapy clinical trial is right for you.

11 Best Foods For Your Immune System
The following story is excerpted from TIME’s special edition, 100 Most Healing Foods, which is available in stores, at the Meredith Shop and at Amazon. Vitamin C has a reputation for being a feel-good nutrient, so it will come as no surprise that this list is full of foods with high levels of it. In the body, vitamin C behaves as an antioxidant, which means it protects cells from free-radical damage. Consuming it also helps the body better absorb iron, which is critical for normal immune-system function. Although foods high in vitamin C won’t stop your flu symptoms, eating them regularly may help prevent...

Is It Possible To Eat Too Much Fruit?
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was, briefly and famously, an ardent fruitarian—meaning he ate a diet composed primarily of fruit, which he believed would cleanse his body of harmful fluids. Just as famously, the actor Ashton Kutcher tried adopting Jobs’s fruit-centric diet, until he ended up in the hospital with an out-of-whack pancreas. So is it bad for your health to eat a lot of fruit? Though a famous study from 1980 argued that based on the evolution of human jaws and teeth, our ancient ancestors used to eat a diet dominated by fruit, there’s not a lot of good evidence for or against fruit-heavy diets fo...

You Asked: What ’s the Best Way to Wash Fruits and Vegetables?
It’s a scary time to eat a salad, given the news of a vast E. coli outbreak in the U.S. spread by contaminated romaine lettuce. If the outbreak has you worrying about your produce-washing habits, you’re not alone. But washing your produce won’t protect you from E. coli. A recent study in Food Science & Nutrition found that rinsing or submerging leafy vegetables in water doesn’t meaningfully reduce their burden of E. coli bacteria. Another study, this one from the University of Georgia, found specially designed produce washes were even less effective than a water rinse at clearing away E. coli. (...
