CBS News

NPR
Eat more when you're stressed? You're not alone. More than a third of the participants in a national survey conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health said they change their diets during stressful times.

Q by Equinox via Yahoo News

"With today's diet of processed foods it’s easy to become vitamin deficient — either by not eating enough of the right foods or not absorbing them properly due to digestive issues," says Dr. Susan Blum, founder of the Blum Center for Health and author of the new book, "The Immune System Recovery Plan."

Taking B vitamins does not prevent Alzheimer's disease
News-Medical.net
Taking B vitamins doesn't slow mental decline as we age, nor is it likely to prevent Alzheimer's disease, conclude Oxford University researchers who have assembled all the best clinical trial data involving 22,000 people to offer a final answer on this debate.

Are fitness trackers really helpful?
The Boston Globe
Fitness tracking monitors promise to lead to all sorts of results: You'll melt off fat just by monitoring your steps; eat better by tracking your food intake; get better sleep. But the fitness devices can cost as much as hundreds of dollars, and often aren't as helpful as users hope they will be.
