This 8-Year-Old Who Brought A Rice Krispie Treat On A Jog Is All Of Us
Hey, a girl’s got to eat. Briseyda Ponce, a 17-year-old from Irving, Texas goes on a run most days. On March 22, her 8-year-old cousin, Allysson Baires, asked if she could jog with her. “I thought she might of been bored and just wanted to go out,” Briseyda told the Huffington Post.

Women Whose Health Insurance Covers IVF Are More Likely To Have A Baby
Women who pursue in vitro fertilization (IVF) to become pregnant have a greater chance of giving birth if they have health insurance that covers the expensive procedure, according to new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. While the study’s lead author, Emily S. Jungheim, allowed in a statement that the finding was “simple and possibly obvious,” it documents the link between insurance coverage and better outcomes. The high cost of a single IVF procedure ― estimated by the American Pregnancy Association to be $12,000 to $17,000 ― stops many women from ...

Democrats Are Back On Offense And Waiting For GOP To Beg For Their Help
WASHINGTON ― With Republicans in retreat from their aborted effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Democrats are now in hot pursuit, demanding that the administration cease any effort to “explode” the health care law. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), meanwhile, is proposing her own repairs to the ACA and calling on her colleagues to put forward their ideas. “We can then discuss these suggestions in our Caucus and be prepared at the earliest possible time to go forward,” she wrote in a Tuesday letter to her caucus. “It would be my hope to create a list of priorities to engage...

Would Legalizing Medical Marijuana Help Curb The Opioid Epidemic?
This study and a few others provided some evidence regarding the potential positive benefits of legalizing marijuana to reduce opioid use and abuse, but they are still preliminary,” she said in an email. Dr. Esther Choo, a professor of emergency medicine at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, was intrigued by the study’s suggestion that access to cannabis might reduce opioid misuse. “It is becoming increasingly clear that battling the opioid epidemic will require a multi-pronged approach and a good deal of creativity,” Choo, who was not involved in the study, said in an email. “C...

Why People Say 'You' When Talking About Themselves
Sometimes “you” doesn’t mean “you,” a new study finds. Instead, in these instances, people say “you” to make it easier to talk about a negative experience, according to the study. In this sense, the word “you” can, somewhat obliquely, mean “me.” For example, people may say, “you win some, you lose some,” when they have just failed at a task, but by using “you” instead of “I,” they communicate that failure can happen to anyone, not just that individual, the study said. The findings show that people sometimes use the word &l...

Breastfeeding Won't Make Your Child Smarter In The Long Run, Study Says
There are plenty of very good reasons for moms to breastfeed their babies if they’re able to, but longterm cognitive gains may not be one of them. A new study, published in the journal Pediatrics on Monday, found that children who were breastfed until they were at least 6 months old seemed to be less hyperactive at age 3. But by the time they turned 5, those differences had disappeared. And after the researchers adjusted for socio-economic variables, there were only negligible differences between preschoolers who were breastfed and those who were not in terms of their vocabulary and problem-solving skills. “We ...

10 Habits Of Unlikeable People
Too many people succumb to the mistaken belief that being likeable comes from natural, unteachable traits that belong only to a lucky few—the good looking, the fiercely social, and the incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this misconception. In reality, being likeable is under your control, and it’s a matter of emotional intelligence (EQ). In a study conducted at UCLA, subjects rated over 500 descriptions of people based on their perceived significance to likeability. The top-rated descriptors had nothing to do with being gregarious, intelligent, or attractive (innate characteristics). Instead, the top desc...

The Battle For America Is The Battle For Science
The man who popularized Greek-style yogurt, Hamdi Ulukaya, is probably one of the only, if not the only, billionaire of recent years who does not owe his fortune to the government. Jeff Bezos does, Bill Gates does, Mark Zuckerberg does, along with dozens of others who have amassed fortunes in the digital age. They are smart men all who have exploited opportunities, which would not have existed but for the government’s presence in science. I applaud individuals who build on government discoveries to make their fortunes. But government-backed science, which has brought us everything from GPS to the internet, is in for ...

Is Diabetes The Disease Or The Symptom?
Earlier this week I was told I was diabetic. When sharing it with people, some felt maybe this was not the type of news the founder of Less Cancer should broadcast. I am sure that it is exactly the kind of thing to share. Since founding the organization in 2004, I have always been open about some of the lifestyle challenges and risks I have engaged in; from being a chain smoker as a child to having a diet so poor that as a college student at 6’6.5” and 168 lbs, I was diagnosed with malnutrition. Since that time I have been far from saved. I did quit smoking 21 years ago when my son was born, as he had a respira...

Choices, Voices, And Veganism: Diet For The Many
As I write this, I am about to leave for Boston to speak at iV, the Ivy League Vegan Conference, at Harvard. Prominent voices will gather there and collectively, one anticipates, make the case for veganism. The timing is a bit ironic. A paper was just published in the Lancet, describing the lifestyle and health status of the Tsimane. The paper generated considerable excitement, and widespread media attention, because the Tsimane, a population in the Bolivian Amazon described as living “a subsistence lifestyle of hunting, gathering, fishing, and farming,” were found to have “the lowest reported levels of coronary a...

How Kristen Bell Is Trying To Protect The Environment In The Age Of Trump
As I rode an elevator up to a midtown hotel suite I could never afford to stay in for an interview with Kristen Bell about her green lifestyle, a news alert buzzed on my phone. President Donald Trump’s administration had approved the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project climate change activists have advocated against for years because of its potentially damaging impact on the environment. The “Good Place” star was in town to promote eco-friendly and sustainable living by way of her new partnership with Tide and the World Wildlife Fund, which will receive $5 every time someone...
