An Award-Winning Cancer Researcher Says U.S. Science Has Never Been More Imperiled
WASHINGTON -- Around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 150 or so people gathered in an otherwise empty National Press Club in downtown D.C. Hours earlier, in the room down the hall, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) had drawn throngs of press during an appearance before the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Now, none remained. Instead, attendees still in their work attire sat around tables sipping wine and eating moderately moist chicken dinners, waiting to hear from the guest of the night, a doctor from the Boston Children's Hospital whom few in D.C. -- outside those walls -- knew of.

Eat for Your Heart's Content
Have you been told by someone to "Eat to your heart's content?" Usually this phrase is used when you are a guest in someone's home and they want you to enjoy the food they've prepared. Or you could be at a restaurant or resort and the owners also want you to enjoy what they offer. Most often, when this phrase is used it's about eating an abundance of food with various ingredients and no consideration about the quantity you eat. While this may be acceptable and fun for an isolated situation, for the majority of the time change the phrase to eat for your heart's content. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U...

Adverse Childhood Experiences & Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
Repeated adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can change the body, brain, nervous system and ultimately an entire life. You may be incredibly resilient. The person with an easier life and more harmonious childhood may appear more resilient, but they have not been tested in the same ways. You may be an incredibly resourceful person — likewise, life has probably helped you hone these skills. You may be highly intelligent, empathic, kind or creative. You may feel very connected to your spiritual self. You may be navigating life from your heart and your smarts and yet wonder it’s not coming together for you. Trauma...

The One Thing Most People Are Scared Of (It's Not What You Think)
Oprah says, after years of doing the Oprah show, that every guest, from the First Lady to the cleaning lady, wanted to know they mattered.

I see this fear manifest itself in all kinds of ways. Do any of these resonate? 1.

Monsanto Advocate Says Roundup Is Safe Enough To Drink, Then Refuses To Drink It
Roundup is a highly effective weed-killer that can be used during home garden maintenance, or on a massive soybean field to boost productivity. It's also been called a probable carcinogen. But according to Dr. Patrick Moore, that may not be true because "you can drink a whole quart" of the herbicide "and it won't hurt you." Moore, an independent scientist not associated with Monsanto, recently joined French cable channel Canal+ as part of an upcoming news documentary. He advocated for the safety of glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, after a recent report said the widely used chemical "probably" causes cancer. T...

Climate Oscillations and the Global Warming Faux Pause
No, climate change is not experiencing a hiatus. No, there is not currently a "pause" in global warming. Despite widespread such claims in contrarian circles, human-caused warming of the globe proceeds unabated. Indeed, as reported here at The Huffington Post just last month, the most recent year (2014) was likely the warmest year on record. It is true that Earth's surface warmed a bit less than models predicted it to over the past decade-and-a-half or so. This doesn't mean that the models are flawed. Instead, it points to a discrepancy that likely arose from a combination of three main factors (see the discussion my pie...

Weekend Roundup: Merkel in the Middle as Post-Cold War Europe Falters
The whole idea of European integration was to anchor Germany in Europe to avoid another world war and to spread prosperity across the continent with a single market and common currency. Russia agreed to German unification after the Cold War in exchange for the West not absorbing Europe's eastern frontier into its sphere of influence. Now democratically elected governments in Athens and Kiev -- and the responses in Berlin and Moscow -- are challenging both post-Cold War arrangements. Angela Merkel, as chancellor of Europe's unrivaled power, has become, for better and worse, the crisis manager in the middle. In an intervi...

A new study examining a previous outbreak of Ebola in Uganda offers the first clues as to why children appear to be better than adults at fighting off the Ebola virus.

Following is an example of how post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop after a single traumatic incident. Tony had a somewhat stable childhood. Though his parents divorced when he was 8, he, his mother and siblings stayed in the same house and he regularly saw his father, who remained in the same town. He had some difficulty with learning in school, and as a result often felt discouraged. His grades reflected this. However, he found success and acceptance in athletics, and always had a lot of friends. Tony joined the Army when he was 18, looking to see some different parts of the world, serve his country, and per...

OCD: The Enemy or Simply an Unwanted Guest?
I’ve previously written how personifying obsessive-compulsive disorder can help sufferers accept, understand, and recover from the disorder. It’s also beneficial for loved ones to view OCD in this way. When my son Dan was dealing with severe OCD, I had no trouble seeing the disorder as something separate from him. It is something he has, not something he is.
