5 no-diet tips for weight loss

Diets don’t work. The diet and supplement industry is a $30 billion industry, yet almost two-thirds of the U.S. population is overweight or obese.

The water is even worse for Native Americans

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan, is increasingly becoming a central focus in the 2016 presidential election, especially now that Democratic candidates are preparing for a debate there next month, but maybe the candidates should be debating somewhere in the Navajo Nation instead.

Weight bias: What is it and what can we do about it?

There is an issue that has been flying under the radar for far too long. It is an issue that has become a socially acceptable form of discrimination and is prevalent in every state throughout our great nation: Weight bias. The unfortunate reality is that 69 percent of adults in the United States are overweight and 35 percent are obese. To compound on this highly complex threat to our nation’s health and well-being, how the general population perceives those who are overweight or obese is debatably an even more powerful societal issue.

Why you need to know these symptoms of this aggressive form of cancer

Anaplastic thyroid cancer (ATC) is the least common, but most deadly, of the four types of thyroid cancer. ATC is very aggressive; it only accounts for less than 2 percent of all thyroid cancer cases in the United States, but it is responsible for 40 percent of deaths caused by the disease. This alarming number is partly caused by late anaplastic thyroid cancer detection. Because ATC has a rapid course and spreads quite early, the disease is typically discovered after it has already spread to other body parts such as the brain, bones, or lungs -- at which point, unfortunately, there ...
