Here’s a Money-Saving Guide to Eating Gluten Free
By Jessica Jones, MS, RDThese days, clients generally are hard pressed not to find a gluten-free food section in their local supermarket. With 3 million Americans suffering from celiac disease and non celiac gluten sensitivity, it’s no surprise that food companies are cashing in on the skyrocketing demand for gluten-free foods. In 2010, gluten-free product sales reached more than $2.6 billion and are projected to exceed $5 billion by 2015, according to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.

There’s No One-Size-Fits-All Diet Plan
By Constance Brown-Riggs, MSEd, RD, CDE, CDN The new position statement released last fall by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) updated nutrition recommendations

HOW THE TOP DOCTORS DO IT

Every day you make at least 200 seemingly inconsequential health decisions. “Should you take the stairs or the elevator?
Choose the oil-and-vinegar dressing or the creamy processed one? Go for a 30-minute walk with your dog after dinner or plant yourself like a root vegetable on the couch?” says
Travis Stork, M.D., author of The Lean Belly Prescription and host of TV’s The Doctors. “It all adds up.” Seeing lives cut short as an ER physician, Dr. Stork has planted his focus on the biggest medical emergency of our time: America’s weight problem.

KAYAKING
“We all need activities that let us escape. For me, that’s biking and white-water kayaking.
When I kayak rapids, I don’t think about anything except making the eddy before the next drop, or making sure that I don’t paddle into a recirculating hydraulic (or ‘hole,’ in White-water lingo). I call it ‘active meditation.’”

8 Question And 8 Answer

I’m confused about PSA testing. I’m 39 and have a family history of prostate cancer. Do I need the test?
CARL, TULSA, OK
If you asked a Vegas bookie, he’d bet on testing: Your family history is the strongest indicator of your risk of developing the disease. “If you have a brother or father who’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you should have a PSA test and a digital rectal exam at age 40,” says J. Brantley Thrasher, M.D., chairman of urology at the University of Kansas medical center. So put the test on your 2013 to-do list, but keep this in mind: An elevated PSA does not necessarily a cancer diagnosis make.
Depending on your result, your doctor may repeat the test every 6 months to distinguish a false positive from an upward trend. But what about men who have no family history of the disease? The U.S.
Preventive Services Task Force actually advises against PSA-based screening for prostate cancer. That’s because only 25 percent to 35 percent of men with elevated PSA scores have prostate cancer, and many of them undergo unnecessary biopsies that can cause erectile dysfunction and incontinence.
Ultimately, a guy should discuss all his risk factors and screening options with his doctor.

4 Question And 4 Answer

Are cotton swabs really bad for my ears?
Jennifer M., Emmaus, PA
When used properly, cotton swabs are perfectly safe. But most of us ignore the warning that says not to insert the swab into the ear. Doing so can push earwax farther down the canal, possibly damaging the eardrum and leading to hearing loss. Remember that ears are self-cleaning. If anything, all you need is a cotton-swab sweep along the skin folds of the
Outer ear. If you suspect you have a wax clog-up, drop a tiny amount of mineral oil into your ear and let it drain on its own.

Are cotton swabs really bad for my ears? My cholesterol is high, but I don’t want to take meds. Help! I always clean my plate—and then feel bloated. Help! Does pouring the oil off of natural nut butter save significant calories?
