Here's a surprise: Statins' "fringe benefits," such as curing deadly cases of the flu, may make taking a statin even more important than its original purpose: to lower cholesterol and prevent heart attacks and strokes. What makes statins such medical superpowers? First, they lower cholesteRead More
Paul Bunyan and his sidekick Babe, the Blue Ox, were characters in lumberjack folklore for years before William Laughead composed a direct mail pamphlet for the Red River Lumber Company in 1916. Then the duo became a sensation across the U.S. and with his massive boots and enormous stride, Bunyan...Read More
Fifty years ago, 17-year-old, Randy Gardner and two pals camped out in his bedroom to see what would happen if Gardner broke the world record for sleep deprivation. The teenager stayed awake for 264.4 hours (that record stands today), experiencing moodiness, hallucinations, incoherent thinking and..Read More
Sarah Jessica Parker did it. So did Gwyneth Paltrow. Pregnancy inspired them to get healthier. In a nutshell (make it walnuts!), they focused on regimens like the Mediterranean diet – whole grains, no processed foods (fish and lean meats for Ms. Parker; Ms. Paltrow is a strict vegan), low-carbRead More
When a New York City 4th grader Zachary Maxwell told his folks he wanted to take his lunch to school, they insisted he stick with the school’s oh-so-tasty and nutritious-sounding hot lunch program. So he made Yuck -- a 20-minute documentary revealing what was really being dished up -- not tRead More
It's Not Me…It's You. That’s the title of a George Lopez comedy special on HBO and what lots of folks told researchers who conducted a survey on distracted walking for the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS). When they asked folks if they listen to music, texted or cRead More
What embarrassing health secret do teen athletes, guys in their 40s to 90s, middle-age women, and military parachute trainees share but rarely 'fess up to? Bladder problems. We're talking dribbles, sudden leaks, soaked pads, and mad dashes to the bathroom. Thanks to the billion-dollar absorbent-p...Read More
The 2014 documentary, Foodie: The Culinary Jet Set, followed a collection of food fanatics as they indulged their quest for the perfect morsel by dining in the world’s top posh-nosh restaurants. In North America over 47 million of you claim you’re foodies, demanding healthier ingredientsRead More
Everything that goes up must come down—or so the saying goes. That’s certainly true of the stock market, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s popularity, and the winner’s weight on The Biggest Loser. But sometimes the opposite is true. When it comes to elevated levels of lousy LDL cholestRead More
The Breathe Youth Media Awards (formerly Hackademy) are given for smoking in films. In 2015 Bill Murray won for the PG-13 rated St. Vincent, in which he puffed and puffed around kids. Seems 38 percent of PG-13 movies feature smoking (often, a lot!). The Centers for Disease Control says that making aRead More
Serena Williams signed a five-year endorsement deal with Nike. American Ballet Theater prima ballerina Misty Copeland landed an Under Armour deal (we’re thinking ‘cause under that grace is pure steel). These top athletes dodged one of the unrecognized risks of endorsements -- touting proRead More
Even though they’re buried in their own junk, the hoarders on reality TV shows just seem in need of a couple more trash bags and storage bins to overcome their problem. But in truth, hoarding is a far deeper, more intractable disorder than that. An estimated one in 20 Americans is a serious hoRead More
Until the late 1800’s bathing was considered unhealthy and a thin layer of dirt was thought to protect a person from bad elements in the air that could permeate the skin and cause disease! Tomatoes, also called poison apples, were considered toxic by Europeans for almost 200 years (until NeapoRead More
It’s been 108 years since the Cubs won a World Series, but this might be the year to end that championship drought. Sportswriters and psychologists, however, are warning that the stress of waiting to see how the season plays out – winning or losing – can trigger anxiety, anger, sadRead More
Presidents, it seems, are as inclined to doddle as the rest of us. During one meeting with legislative leaders, General Eisenhower drew himself as a bold nude (from the waist up) in front of gunboats.
