Twist of fate: Anna reconnects with the oncologist who saved her life
Credit: Mark Dela Cruz Anna Protsiou was five in 2002 when she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. She remembers pain and the fruit-scented anesthesia masks that led her to stop eating cherries. She remembers hospital arts and crafts projects. What she barely remember is the pediatric oncologist who saved her life. She was a young girl then who didn’t speak English, moving with her family from their native Greece to be treated for a year at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center.

Laura Manning, MPH, RD, CDN Clinical Nutrition Coordinator Susan and Leonard Feinstein IBD Clinical Center at Mount Sinai Abdominal pain and a swollen belly, gas, constipation, or diarrhea—these symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affect one in seven American adults. A common gastrointestinal (GI) disorder, IBS is a long-term but not life-threatening condition. Still, it can interfere with many aspects of daily life, and is one of the top reasons for missing work.

How To Boost Melatonin Naturally
Most people know melatonin as the sleep hormone. And that’s right. It helps your body cycle down every night so you can rest. But melatonin is so much more than that… It’s also one of your body’s most powerful cancer killers. Studies show melatonin boosts the immune system. It protects against the toxic side effects of chemo and radiation. It improves wound healing after surgery. And it even increases cancer survival rates.1 And new research proves that melatonin suppresses the growth of breast cancer tumors. How does melatonin affect breast cancer? Mammograms detect cancer.

Montreal Is About To Kill A Lot Of Dogs, Based On Quack Science
A dog registered as a boxer has killed a woman in Montreal, so the mayor is calling for a ban on pit bulls. This would be amusing, if it weren't so predictable and depressing: in few areas of public policy do you encounter thinking this routinely deranged. And it all starts with contempt for science. Consider the National Post's Barbara Kay, almost certainly Canada's most prominent enemy of this ill-defined category of dog: the "pit bull." Kay is one of the saner voices on her side of the debate, and I sense she genuinely believes that she is acting on behalf of dog bite victims. For years she has written screed...

5 Easy Ways To Stop Wasting Money On Food
Food waste is a huge problem ― not only for the planet, but for your budget too. American families throw out about 25 percent of the food and beverages they buy, according to the National Resources Defense Council.
