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...

Barack Obama Is Not A Fan Of Peas In Guacamole
President Barack Obama does not plan on giving peas a chance. At least not in his guacamole. The leader of the free world weighed in on the heated debate Wednesday, after The New York Times urged their readers to sample guacamole with peas. Add green peas to your guacamole. Trust us. http://t.co/7imMY9c2ph pic.twitter.com/oeOMt2qgmh— The New York Times (@nytimes) July 1, 2015 Guacamole lovers far and wide erupted in outrage, protesting what they saw as a desecration of a favorite comfort food.

Spicy Lessons From Veggies: Yoga Lessons From the Farm
I have the honor of teaching yoga in a very beautiful barn at a local farm. When the yoga season started this summer at Amee Farm in Pittsfield, Vermont, the tomatoes were seedlings, roughly an inch tall, growing indoors. All striving to be full grown tomato plants that would produce fruit and thus "survive" as future seeds. Their dharma is simply reproduction and species longevity. The act of living that dharma, however, is called tapas or burning zeal. All the plants at the farm share a similar tapas. As do the trees in the Green Mountain National Forest surrounding the farm. They don't try to be anything other than wha...

The Time Is Ripe To Explain The Difference Between Fruits And Vegetables
You say tomato, we say aggravation. The debate over what constitutes a fruit or a vegetable can get old in a hurry. But a new video from SciShow breaks it down in an easy-to-digest way. Host Hank Green starts by warning viewers not to flaunt their expertise, before tactfully dropping his knowledge about how fruits and vegetables are classified. The clip is good fun -- and you'll finally learn why a strawberry isn't really a berry. "Botanically speaking, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems," ac...

6 Creative New Ways to Enjoy Summer Fruits
Summer is peak season for many delicious fruits like strawberries, blueberries, watermelon, peaches and more. With so many wonderful choices, it's surprising that many people miss out on tasty ways to enjoy fruits all summer long. Because fruits are sweet, many people think of them as dessert only, but fruit can add depth and flavor to salads and main dishes. Sweet fruits can balance out salty, tangy flavors, like mixing strawberries and feta cheese in a salad, or can mellow out the heat from chiles and other fiery spices, like salsas made with mango and chile peppers. Less Sugar Than You Might Think People with diabet...

Super Nutrient’s Liver Surprise
I was one of the first doctors to talk about the incredible benefits of the super-nutrient pyrroloquinoline quinone, or PQQ for short. I was also one of the first doctors to recommend it to patients. Now I recommend this essential nutrient and powerful antioxidant to almost everyone who comes to see me at my wellness clinic. Researchers have only just recently begun to understand the many important roles of PQQ on the body’s cellular processes. Not only does it possess extraordinary energy-giving qualities and have the power to ease nerve pain and battle Alzheimer’s, it has the potential to become the world’s stronge...

Protecting Your Vision in the Digitally-Drowning 21st Century
Ancient humans depended upon their eyes for survival. Survival of the fittest resulted in eyes that were structured for spotting game or danger from a distance. We inherited these hunter-soldier eyes from our human ancestors. Pity the poor human of the 21st century. Both our work and recreation now depend upon seeing computer and hand-held device screens viewed from within arm's length. The same screens, on the job and at home, are now the source of stress on our visual systems' capabilities. Optometrists call this "digital eye strain" or "computer vision syndrome." The technical evolution of the Digital Age and the ca...

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...

Martha Stewart Has Her Very Own Triscuit Flavor, And It's The Bougiest Thing In The Cracker Aisle
Of course. Of course Martha Stewart -- model, housekeeping hero and comrade of Snoop Dogg -- has concocted the fanciest cracker flavor in the grocery store. Triscuits have been around since 1901, but Stewart's made them very on trend and so 2015. Her toasted coconut and sea salt-flavored Triscuit hit shelves in early May and will stay there for a limited time. Though Stewart has countless cracker recipes of her own, she told The Huffington Post her partnership with Triscuit was her first experience working with a mass marketed cracker manufacturer. "It was a long and interesting process," she said, and after a lot of t...
