    By Sima Cohen

    June 30, 2013 | 11:27 am

    Q: Chia seeds or Flax seeds?

  • Supplementing Mediterranean Diet with Olive Oil or Nuts Decreases Stroke Risk

    By Albert Fuchs, M.D.

    April 5, 2013 | 1:31 pm

    What is a Mediterranean diet? I had always believed that it involves eating shawarma three times a day while sitting on a beach in Tel Aviv, just because that’s my diet when I visit the Mediterranean. I was astounded to learn that this is not the case. A Mediterranean diet includes...

    April 2, 2013 | 4:49 am

    The trendy notion that you should be eliminating carbs is just that: a Trend. The truth is that you need carbs to metabolize properly and function at your best, so avoiding carbs completely is a bad idea. However, there is a such thing as good carbs and bad carbs.  A “good” carb is...

    “Americans are sicker and die younger than people in other wealthy nations.”
