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...

The Health And Beauty Benefits Of Green Vegetables

Mangosteen: The Cancer-Fighting Superfruit
  If you're a woman with a family history of breast cancer, your doctor may recommend you start taking a toxic chemo drug like tamoxifen to lower your risk of developing the disease. Even if you have no signs or symptoms of cancer. Tamoxifen is what's known as a chemopreventive agent. That's a fancy phrase that means it's something that prevents cancer from forming. But its track record isn't all that impressive. Trials found that for every 1,000 women who take the drugs, only 21 to 35 cases of cancer would be prevented. And the side effects are downright terrifying. Bone pain, blood clots, increas...

Farmers Supported Trump. His Proposals Have Them Thinking Again
When President Donald Trump was elected last fall, it was with an apparent majority of the nation’s farmers behind him. But now, three weeks since Trump’s inauguration, some of those farmers appear to be having second thoughts. Dairy farmers and fruit and vegetable growers, both of whom rely heavily on an immigrant workforce to harvest their goods, are expressing fears that Trump’s promise to up immigration enforcement and build a border wall with Mexico could eliminate much of its workforce. Commodity farmers are also concerned that a 20-percent import tax on Mexican goods ― an idea the Trump admi...
