Lose Your Belly Fat Now – It Literally is Killing You

Weight loss with the reduction of abdominal fat mass almost invariably reverses insulin resistance as a consequence of chronic excessive energy intake in relation to physical activity levels.

Each Time McDonald’s Sells a Big Mac, We’re Out $7

The average retail price of a Big Mac in the United States is $4.56, but that’s just a fraction of the actual cost. When we add in all the hidden, externalized expenses of meat production, the full burden on society is a hefty $12.00 per sandwich. The extra $7.44 above the retail price is borne by American taxpayers and consumers. In other words, rich or poor, omnivore or herbivore, you incur a share of the hidden costs of each and every Big Mac sold in this country.

Class Action Lawyers Who Sued Big Tobacco are Suing Junk Food Giants

While not a fan of litigation lawyers, I believe suing junk food manufacturers holds valuable promise and is necessary. The least expensive way to materially improve healthcare is by reducing consumption of junk food (minimal nutrient value as a ratio to calories). Health warning labeling on processsed foods as emerged on cigarettes after litigation could improve public health.

Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Healthy Aging Tips by Andrew Weil, M.D.

It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body's healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness.

Dr. Andrew Weil: Depression – my experience

Depression has many forms. Worst among them is the kind characterized by deep, soul-crushing despair, so eloquently described in novelist William Styron's 1992 book, “Darkness Visible: A Memoir of Madness,” where he states "The pain of severe depression is quite unimaginable to those who have not suffered it. . . . the grey drizzle of horror induced by depression takes on the quality of physical pain."
