Fish with a side of plastic?
Our ancestors thrived on eating fish fresh from the ocean. After all, fish is a pure source of protein and healthy omega-3 fats. But our modern fish supply is vastly different than anything our ancestors ate. As our oceans have become more and more polluted, so has our seafood. In fact, the fish on your dinner plate today is likely loaded with plastic trash. Let me explain… Every year, billions of pounds of plastic waste pour into our oceans and rivers. I’m talking about things like grocery bags, drinking straws, water bottles and more. It’s now estimated that up to 51 trillion pieces of plastic c...

More than 100 women die of breast cancer in the U.S. every day. It's the second leading cause of cancer deaths in American women.

Their doctors prescribe it to try to relieve the symptoms of menopause. Like hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and weight gain. But what the drug companies try to pass off as hormones are actually synthetic concoctions. They are fake versions of the estrogen and progesterone that your body makes ...

Is white bread just as healthy as brown?
Conclusion Studies that suggest "everything you thought you knew about healthy eating is wrong" create great headlines, but rarely stand up to much analysis. There are many reasons why you might choose wholemeal bread over white bread, and results from a week-long study in 20 people aren't going to change all of those. The main measure of interest in the study is glycaemic control, a measure of how quickly the body can process glucose consumed in the diet. Poor glycaemic control is seen as a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, where the body can't process glucose properly, leading to high blood sugar, which can da...
