10 Satisfying Low-Sodium Snacks
When you need to satisfy between-meal munchies, do you automatically reach for a salty snack? For many of us it’s the bags of pretzels and potato chips that call our name from the vending machine midafternoon. But the snack favorites tend to be high in sodium, a mineral that we should be limiting in our diets. According to the National Dietary Guidelines for Americans, everyone should aim to consume less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) of salt daily for better health. The American Heart Association recommends an even lower number — less than 1500 mg — to keep your blood pressure within a healthy range. For mos...

Nature’s Most Powerful Age Fighter?
When I lecture at anti-aging conferences around the world, I get a good sense of what the leading anti-aging physicians are thinking about. And I’m surprised by how many are still holding out hope for an anti-aging “drug.” But I’m not holding my breath. And even if the FDA approved a drug for aging, it would likely include a laundry list of side effects, and only affect a small range of age-related decline. I’ve always had more faith in nature. Many of the most powerful age fighters are naturally occurring, and they do a better job of supporting and lengthening your telomeres than any drug. Te...

Give Your Manhood A Sporting Chance
I went to a sporting goods store with my son last weekend and found it pretty much impossible to buy him a sports jersey that wouldn’t poison him with gender-bending chemicals. Almost everything these days is made of synthetic material or some new "techno" fiber that "wicks away moisture." It took me half an hour to find something made from real cotton. But here’s the problem… those hi-tech materials are full of nasty and dangerous chemicals. Too many popular sportswear brands, including Adidas and Nike, manufacture sportswear that contain chemicals linked to low-T, obesity, can...

15 Eating Habits That Make You Live Longer
By Dan Buettner For more than a decade, I've been working with a team of experts to study hot spots of longevity -- regions we call Blue Zones, where many people live to 100 and beyond. They are the Greek island of Ikaria; the highlands of Sardinia; the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica; Okinawa, Japan; and Loma Linda, Calif., home of the highest concentration of Seventh-day Adventists in the U.S. Remarkably, we've learned that folks in all these places share similar rituals and practices surrounding food. (Hint: They don't count calories, take vitamins or weigh protein grams!) After analyzing more than 150 dietary studies c...

Why Eating Healthy Is Like Dating A Guy That Looks Good On Paper
We all strive for eating healthy and trying to be as nutritionally sound as possible. But sometimes eating chai seed smoothies, flax oatmeal, and kale as every side dish can actually turn out not so great. Let me explain... Let's say a client hands me their food journal and it looks like this: 8:00 a.m.: greek yogurt and blueberries 11:00 a.m.: handful of almonds 12:00 p.m.: salad with grilled chicken and extra vegetables 3:00 p.m.: an apple with nuts 6:00 p.m.: tilapia with broccoli and cauliflower This is like the quintessential near-perfect diet diary, am I right?! I mean, submit this in class and you'd get an A++...

Plant-derived compound targets cancer stem cells
A compound and an enzyme that occur naturally in cruciferous vegetables--cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts--may help prevent recurrence and spread of some cancers, according to researchers. When they treated human cervical cancer stem cells with phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) in a Petri dish, about 75 percent died within 24 hours using a 20-micromolar concentration of the compound.
