Some Recent Health News

I found these articles interesting and thought I'd share them here.


This one supports the importance of essential fatty acids for mental health.

Eating Healthy Food Can Keep Mental Disorders At Bay!

The title on this one explains itself. Don't think that supplements can take the place of food.

Vitamin-rich foods always trump a bottle of supplements, nutrition experts say

This one talks about how extreme diets can damage fertility. Kimkins members, if you start missing periods, please stop the diet. You don't have to be down to skin & bones to be harmed this way. Sorry about that annoying Citibank ad - I can't figure out how to make it go away but if you copy the text of the story into notepad or something, you can read the words blocked by the ad.

Excessive weight loss can affect women’s ability to conceive

The title explains itself on this one, too.

Seek lifelong health over short-term weight loss

Thanks, MBF. I feel like I'm running out of things to say about that awful Kimkins diet, and I don't feel qualified to talk about eating disorders, so I'm trying to search out new topics. Maybe stories about health things that people should do, rather than what they shouldn't.
