Add Color this Nutrition Month

As a physician for over three decades, I’ve treated diseases that take years from our lives and life from our years. And the sobering fact is, many of these diseases could be prevented, better treated and even reversed if more people would make simple lifestyle changes that we know can work as well or better than prescribed drugs or other treatments.

Even Healthy Food Can Have More Sodium than You Think

Even Healthy Food Can Have More Sodium than You Think

You try and make healthy choices for your family, but it’s hard to stop what you can’t see. The food industry adds salt and sodium to foods before it even reaches your dinner table. About three-quarters of our daily sodium intake in America comes from salt added to foods during processing.

Why Wear Red on National Wear Red Day?

Why Wear Red on National Wear Red Day?

Ask any stylist, job coach or dating expert and they’ll tell you that red stands out. Eyes are immediately drawn to it. Some even say that the color red is a confidence booster and makes you feel powerful. Maybe that’s why we chose the color red to signify our fight against the No. 1 killer in women. Maybe it’s just a coincidence that it’s also the color of our hearts.

Healthy School Lunch Law Thrives

Healthy School Lunch Law Thrives

Soon, more kids will have school lunches that have healthier levels of sodium. Recently the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that it was moving forward with the second goal of lowering sodium for school lunches set to go in place for school year 2017-2018, while giving schools that need the time an extra year to catch up. The American Heart Association thinks this is a big deal and praised the agency for the move. But what does this mean?
