The Swiss Gnomes Blow the Doors Off the Fat/Cholesterol Nonsense
Finally... finally! The smart money is into FAT! Has the diet/cholesterol/coronary heart disease meme been broken at last? Here are some highlights, from the report issued by Credit Suisse, entitled Fat: The New Health Paradigm. "We believe that we are at a turning point. Our own analysis and the most recent medical research support these new trends. Medical research has shown that eating cholesterol has basically no influence on the level of cholesterol in the blood or on potential heart diseases. Neither has the link between saturated fat intake and cardiovascular risk ever been proven." "On the othe...

3 Ways to Prepare Your Child for a Successful Life
It's pretty much a universal rule: Parents want their children have a better life than they did. One of the best ways to give your child a head start on success is to encourage healthy lifestyle habits. We all know that wellness-focused children often grow up to become healthier, happier, more productive adults, and that often leads to success. Food plays an enormous part, because it can heal or harm, affecting energy levels, mood, ability to focus and more. Let's be clear: You just can't be happy when you're sluggish, irritable, anxious and fuzzy-minded. "Good health enables one to better manage a stressful, deman...

Who doesn't like sugar? I don't think many people would say they don't like it! I grew up in Istanbul, Turkey, and it was traditional to eat a sweet desert with every dinner. When we visit friends or family, the first thing they do is to serve you a sweet, sugary desert. I never thought that sugar was bad for you, because it's sweet and delicious! In Turkey we have a religious celebration called "Ramadan". It's actually an Islamic fast that lasts for a whole month, from sunrise to sunset every day. At the end of the months fasting there is a three-day celebration called "festival of sweets." Yes, it's ...

A promising new treatment for high triglycerides
When you think about fat circulating in the bloodstream, you might immediately think of cholesterol. But there’s another type of fat you shouldn’t ignore: triglycerides. As with cholesterol, high triglycerides can also increase the risk of having a heart attack. Existing drugs for lowering triglycerides aren’t that good at reducing heart attack risk. That’s why a report on a new way to lower triglycerides, published in today’s New England Journal of Medicine, is generating some excitement among cardiologists. What are triglycerides? Triglycerides are a type of fat that circulates in the bloods...

6 Yoga Poses For Anyone Who Sits At A Desk All Day
You may have heard the expression "sitting is the new smoking."

But for anyone with a desk job, sitting all day is hard to avoid. There are some mitigating actions you can take. Frequent strolls throughout the day and using a standing or treadmill desk are good options for lessening the longterm damage of too much sitting.

Campaigns to pass a soda tax and put warning labels on sugar-sweetened beverages are based on strong scientific evidence showing a link between diabetes, obesity and consuming too much sugar. The dangers of "diet" soda are less clear, but studies linking "diet" soda to weight gain and other long-term health consequences are a rising cause for concern.

Statin Myth A New Factor In Diabetes
Over the past two decades, I have watched with increasing alarm the skyrocketing numbers of patients with type 2 diabetes who come to my wellness clinic. Often, they come to see me about other medical issues, but their diabetes adds a new level of complications to their treatment. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body’s response to insulin – the hormone critical for the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels – becomes either ineffective or the insulin itself is produced in insufficient amounts. The horrific trend I’m seeing at my wellness clinic mirrors almost exactly what’s happening in the...

But it turns out Ben was right -- at least about it making us healthy. If you're a "night person," this is going to be hard to hear. But a new study has found that night people are at higher risk for several unhealthy conditions. And this is true regardless of the number of hours they sleep.
