Lots of food, lots of eggnog and other carb laden alcoholic beverages, and lots of grazing all day long on all the boxes of candy friends and business acquaintances sent to us. It's easy to gain the five pounds most people gain during the holidays, and in the process, raise your blood sugar or glucose levels too high.

Watching What You Put In Your Mouth Can Reduce Health Care Spending More Than Politicians
Much of what I write is about the expensive, inequitable and unnecessarily complex U.S. health care system. About how corporate interests control both our health care system and our government--regardless of who we vote for--and what we can do about it.

I'll be introducing you to individuals, businesses, health care providers and organizations that are operating outside of government and who are making a positive difference in the lives of Americans. I'll be starting with in...

Osteoporosis Treatment Alternatives To Bisphosphonates
Big Pharma employs a lot of very serious spin-doctors. I’ll give you a good example. Bisphosphonates For Osteoporosis? A new study just came out on bisphosphonate drugs. These are the most commonly prescribed drugs for osteoporosis. They’re worth about $8.5 billion per year to the drug companies. But this new study says that one-third of the women taking these drugs are still at high risk for fractures.  Now here’s what you have to understand.

6 Things Solo Travel Teaches You
This post originally appeared on National Geographic. I still marvel I didn’t drop stone-cold dead from embarrassment during my first solo travel experience.
