The President Taft diet: Learning from America's heaviest leaders
TIME via CNN
President William Howard Taft has the dubious honor of being America's heaviest leader, weighing in at 314 pounds during his tenure in the White House.

Vitamin D supplements won't help bones in healthy adults, review concludes
Will taking an extra dose of vitamin D help you? Seems like every month there is a new study finding health benefits for taking vitamin D or debunking those claims.

Eat right, sleep tight
The Washington Post
Co-founder of Nourish Schools Casey Seidenberg writes: "I am a huge proponent of feeding our kids well. They are our future. Their little bodies are growing like weeds, and their brains are being fueled by their food. But so are ours.

I have been hearing more and more women in particular who are beginning to suffer seemingly simple health problems, such as fatigue and low energy — even with regular sleep — weight gain, brain fog, insomnia, low tolerance for stressful situations and anxiety.
