There's nothing quite like a white wonderland to make everything feel new again.That being said, I know a number of people who don't enjoy the snow. Part of the reason is because snow interferes with their backyard barbecuing and grilling.As many of you know, North Carolina's weather is great for barbecues all year long. I guess that's why we're world-famous for our grilled meats and tangy bbq.So it's with a heavy heart I must relay sad news about these kinds of foods...A new link between barbecued foods and...

How Festively Plump Dads Might Make Their Daughters Sick

For a long time now, the medical community has observed the relationship between a mother's health and its effects on her children's health. So far, we've been able to determine a mom's genetics can alter the genetics of her child as it forms in utero. This is why there's been so much research dedicated to the relationship between children diagnosed on the autism spectrum and the health/behavior of mothers while pregnant. Fathers, however, are often ignored as a major influence on the health of their children. This isn't because their genetics don't matter - heck, they supply 50% of the gene supply when it comes to conception, so it's quite obvious their role in the health of their children is pronounced.Yet, for the most part, research on this topic focuses primarily on...

Young Women Who Eat This Greatly Reduce Their Risk Of Breast Cancer

Because breast cancer is one of the leading and most damaging kinds of cancer in the nation, I wanted to tell you about a remarkable study done by Harvard University.This study suggests eating a certain nutrient type (with great frequency and regularity) will help significantly reduce your chances of developing breast cancer. That nutrient?Fiber. If you've been following along with what I write, you know I like to push fiber on my patients (and people who aren't my patients).The reason why is obvious:I own a significant stake in the world's largest fiber company...No, that's not it. It's because fiber's great at helping to maintain optimal health; excitingly, it's also been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer.  In an attempt...

Why Eating Buckwheat Is Really Smart

Odds are, if you’ve heard of buckwheat, you might have some misconceptions about this type of food. Inside of alternative health circles, buckwheat has become popular seemingly overnight. Kind of like the scrawny kid in high school who grew 12 inches and 60 pounds over the summer. The biggest reason it’s surged in popularity is because it’s gluten-free. Interestingly enough, people think it’s a cereal grain (so, gluten), but that’s not true. It is listed as a whole grain, but only for culinary purposes. Compositionally, it’s a lot more like rhubarb or sorrel than anything else. Below, I’m going to cover 4 of the best reasons to consider making buckwheat a consistent part of your diet. This isn’t an extensive overview, but, in my opinion, the following reasons are some of the soundest based on...
