Some of this information might be helpful or even true, however, most of these topics sound sexy and sell copies of magazines, papers or gain ratings. My goal with this blog is to find the latest evidence based nutrition,fitness and environmental information to help answer my questions and yours on how to benefit our overall health and longevity. One year its ok to drink a glass of red wine a day, the next, it causes cancer. How many hours of sleep do we really need? Does it depend on the individual? Do blueberries and other foods with antioxidants really help prevent cancer. Does diet help with healing after surgery? Do pesticides and hormones in the food your children eat cause long term health effects? Are you confused yet? I know I am.
Recently, the NIH has cut funding to nutrition research due to budgetary cuts. This should not stop or prevent us from finding answers. I plan on helping to distinguish between the good, the bad and the BS by exploring articles, lectures, interviews and other sources that innovative and intelligent scientists and health professionals are currently discussing and researching nationally and internationally. The information on this blog will be evidence based and not on beliefs and societal myths.
I definitely would appreciate any and all comments, feedback, links and resources you are willing to share with us all on this blog.
