James McWilliams—a historian who has made a name for himself in prestigious publications like the New York Times and The Atlantic for his contrarian defenses of the food industry—is back at it. In an item published last week in the excellent Pacific Standard, McWilliams uses the controversy over a recent study of saturated fat as a club with which to pummel food industry critics like the Times‘ Mark Bittman.
Here’s what happened: A group including Harvard and Cambridge researchers analyzed 72 studies and concluded that there’s no clear evidence that ditching saturated fat (the kind found mainly in butter, eggs, and meat) for the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated kind (found in fish and a variety of vegetable oils) delivers health benefits.
Bittman responded to the study’s release with Read the rest of this entry »

CDC: Abortions fall 5%, largest drop in a decade
By Michael Muskal
November 21, 2012, 1:41 p.m.
The rate of abortions in the United States fell by 5%, the largest single-year decrease in a decade, researchers for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.
The decline is outlined in the annual abortion surveillance data for the year 2009, the latest available. It was published on Wednesday in the CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
About 18% of all pregnancies in the United States end in abortion, the CDC noted. Factors from the availability of abortion providers, state laws, the general economy and access to health services including contraception, can Read the rest of this entry »

Not many folks may recall Alabama‘s state song, which lyric reads, “Alabama, Alabama, I will aye be true to thee. From thy Southern shore where groweth, by the sea the orange tree.”

Here is yet another reason to AVOID using baby formula, and use the God-given, all-natural, built-in, milk-producing, baby-feeding device known as the “breast”!
The reader should take careful note to the headline I wrote, versus the headline the other news writer chose. It may be a fine line to discern, but as you’ll read, you will understand why I chose mine – which I believe accurate. The other headline is misleading.
“The timing of solid foods didn’t increase the odds of becoming obese in youngsters who were breast-fed,” but infants who stopped breast feeding before 4 months, or were not breast fed at all were “linked to a sixfold increase in the risk of obesity.” …Click HERE to read the story…

Placebos help, even when patients know about them
Wed Dec 22, 2010

You can only do one thing at a time?
Welcome to the real world.
With a view toward reality and efficiency, the buzzword “multi-tasking” is on its way out.
In a study to be published this week in “Science,” a scholarly journal, neurological researchers at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France have discovered the brain’s Medial Frontal Cortex (MFC) divides the brain in half when it comes to performing tasks.
