How yoga therapy benefits athletes
By Dr. Shahla Khan

Yahoo Health

As companies eliminate artificial ingredients, is food really getting healthier?
By Cait Harrison
You've probably heard the recent announcement that Panera plans to remove artificial ingredients from its food. But it comes among a plethora of other companies — Tyson, McDonald's, Pepsi, Chipotle, Nestle, Kraft and more — who have also vowed to remove additives, preservatives and other so-called "bad" ingredients from their recipes.

Why you can't lose weight — but your best friend can — on the same diet
Forbes
At last a nutrition and weight loss study has revealed what millions of people have already known all too well from personal experience: different folks lose weight at different rates — even when their calorie deficit is the same. “This study is the first time that it has been shown in a laboratory setting that individual differences in biology make it difficult for some obese people to lose weight,” said Susanne B.

Teens and food: How a fatty diet can disrupt muscle response
By Dorothy L. Tengler
Today, about 1 in 3 American kids and teens is overweight or obese. Tripling from 1971 to 2011, childhood obesity is now the No. 1 health concern among parents in the United States, topping drug abuse and smoking.
