Saving olive ridleys of the Indian Ocean
Richard Aspinall talks to Martin Stelfox from the Olive Ridley project about protecting one of the world ’s smallest turtles from ‘ghost fishing’ in the MaldivesOne of the world ’s smallest turtle (some sources claim smallest is Kemp’s ridley) is also the most abundant, yet to me, it seems to be the hardest to find! I’ve dived on reefs across the tropics, with camera in hand, and have yet to encounter a single olive ridley. I’ve seen scores of hawksbills and greens, and even a few loggerheads, but the olive ridley, with its distinctive heart-shaped shell is an animal I’ve onl...

15 Foods A Nutritionist Always Keeps In Her Fridge
By Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD Healthy eating is my foundation, and I like to think of a well-stocked fridge as pre-production for everyday life. Having the right mix of nutritious foods on hand helps me hit my daily target for veggies and fruit, and lets me throw together simple but balanced meals, so I don’t ever have to rely on takeout. To stock up for the week, I shop at multiple spots, including my local farmer’s markets, Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, traditional supermarkets, and on amazon.com. I’d say I spend about $100 per week on groceries (some of the things I buy aren’t pictured because...

Sat-Fat Bait And Switch
The pattern of provocations, proclamations and click-bait innuendo related to saturated fat is fairly clear to anyone who reads past the headlines. It’s entirely clear to anyone who actually reads the studies that are blithely cited, and routinely misrepresented, in a show of pseudo-erudition (look at me; I can cite a scientific paper!). Just about every missive inviting you to eat more bacon-cheeseburgers and pepperoni pizza or douse yourself with butter is a bait and switch, and those that are otherwise- are simply wrong. What do I mean? Here’s a short list of the bait that draws you in, and th...

How Do I Know If I’m Eating Enough Healthy Fat?
  “Dr. Hyman, how do I know if I’m eating enough fat?” a reader recently asked me. This is an excellent question and one of my favorite subjects because I wholeheartedly believe eating the right amount and type of fat plays a crucial role in shaping health and well-being. Doctors, patients and readers are often completely confused about fat, clinging to myths and misinformation that prevents them from understanding the latest science to lose weight and achieve optimal health. You’re familiar with many of these myths: Fat makes us fat, fat contributes to heart disease, and fat leads to obesity. ...
