Is The ‘ Souping ’ Trend For You?
 By Lisa Drayer, CNN (CNN) — When I first heard of “souping,” it brought me back to my clinical days working in a hospital, where pureed soups and other easy to digest foods — also known as “full liquids” — would be prescribed for patients recovering from gastrointestinal surgery, or those who had difficulty chewing or swallowing. Then I reflected upon how much I regularly enjoy soup, especially for the comfort it provides on cold, dreary days — even though, thankfully, I have no health issues that would require such an easily digestible meal. Soup is often my go-to in t...

The Proven & Unproven Health Benefits Of Honey
By Sandee LaMotte, CNN (CNN) — Move over, prehistoric bears. Humans have loved honey since the Stone Age. Rock art pictures of honey harvesting, which at first glance look like drawings from A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh, date to about 8000 B.C. Beeswax has been found on pottery dating as far back as 7000 B.C., most likely used for waterproofing.

What can gorillas teach us?
All the gorillas were dying… Over 50 years of trying to breed gorillas in zoos and nothing was working. It didn’t matter where they tried — San Diego, Cincinnati, St. Louis — not even the best zoos in the country could get these gorillas to reproduce. They were facing extinction. And everyone simply accepted that it was impossible to breed gorillas in zoos. That was until one caretaker took a closer look at what the gorillas were eating. For decades, zoos fed the gorillas what they called gorilla biscuits. But, on top of being unable to reproduce, the gorillas were developing diseases like heart di...

How Air Pollution Can Lead To Weight Gain
I just read a study that stunned me. It suggested that the air we breathe is making us fat.   A researcher from Duke University placed two groups of rats in separate chambers. One group was exposed to Beijing’s super toxic air. That city has some of the worst air pollution in the world. The second group breathed filtered air. The two groups ate exactly the same diet. After 19 days, the rats exposed to the air pollution were 18% fatter. Their LDL levels were 50% higher and their triglycerides were 46% higher. This indicates high levels of fat in their blood. To make matters worse, their lungs were 25% heavier...
