In a recent study: for mothers who later develop breast cancer, breast-feeding may reduce the risk of cancer recurrence http://nyti.ms/1Afqwen - an observational study, so all caveats apply. An interesting result nonetheless. #breastfeeding

Do you suffer from "constant contact?" You know, that funny social expectation that you be on call and available 24/7, even though you are not a brain surgeon. http://nyti.ms/1cOj5Q0 Quick tip for fighting this epidemic—unplug and stay physically active. And read more here: http://bit.ly/1AkHAiH

Teachers in Marin County are convinced that their school's new standing desks help kids be calmer and more attentive, and allows the kids to let off a little steam. Parents say the children sleep better at night. http://cbsloc.al/1SagVLf #standingdesks
4th graders and some 1st graders at an elementary school in San Rafael are using standing desks and it seems to be helping the students to maintain focus and dissipate excess energy.

By practicing this i think children cannot feel lethargic, and they can give maximum efforts in their classroom.

In many schools formal education now starts at age 4 or 5, and there’s a push toward more structured learning and standardized testing for young kids. But has this strategy increased long-term achievement or test scores? A growing body of evidence says the answer is no. In fact, too much structure too early may even lead to lower test scores and performance later in school. http://nyti.ms/1HhTqaI

What kind of education system do we want? One that produces passive consumers of information with little or no ability to think critically, or self-motivated kids who can truly discover, imagine, innovate, and excel?
Academic teaching in kindergarten backfires.

A large body of research now suggests that depression is associated with a low-grade, chronic inflammatory response and is accompanied by increased oxidative stress. http://bit.ly/1HrJU7p #depression
The idea that depression and other mental health conditions are caused by an imbalance of chemicals (particularly serotonin and norepinephrine) in the brain is so deeply ingrained in our collective...

Exposome is the word scientists use to describe the full range of environmental exposures that influence our health, including everything from food and water to air and social encounters, from birth to death. http://bit.ly/1L8LqvP #exposome
At one time scientists believed our DNA held the key to preventing and reversing disease. But we now know that our environment—not our genes—is the primary driver of health and longevity.

Nutrients are lost from food during any type of cooking. More nutrients are lost when the temperature is higher or the food is cooked for longer - both for microwaves and conventional cooking methods. http://bit.ly/1IKpLfR #microwaves
Microwaving your food may not be as harmful as some health enthusiasts would lead you to believe.

I'm a health detective. I help people with chronic, complex illnesses who haven't been able to find help anywhere else. I'm a licensed acupuncturist by trade, but I specialize in what I call "investigative medicine". I use modern lab testing and detailed questionnaires to determine the underlying cause of health problems (rather than just suppressing symptoms), and supplements, herbs and nutritional therapy to treat them.

Hi Dear Chris: I am very impress by the information you are sharing with us - the people suffering from IBS or other digestive problems. Since the last five years I have been having horrible diverticulatis flares, after reading your articles,and taking notes, I am ready to make the changes in my diet to be a healthy and happy human being.

Save your time and money. God complex without the God skills. His staff reflects him...arrogant and incompetent. Very disappointed, Id recommend everyone from the Paleo community or AIMC stay away

Very uninformed.. I'm concerned that you will be providing harmful information that will hurt the community. Very disconcerting that you would write about nutrition with no training and referencing other blogs instead of peer-reviewed and published studies.
