Health Info

Health information is constantly in the news, and sometimes it doesn't make much sense—one day something’s good for you and the next day it’s not. Wouldn’t it be great to have someone who understands all the scientific jargon and can explain it in everyday language? That’s the purpose of this section—to keep you up to date on the two kinds of health information:

  • In the Research Updates, I check out what’s being said, read the latest research behind it, and tell you what has changed and how it affects you so you can make informed decisions about your health.

  • Other health information is stable, such as Body Mass Index or specific types of workouts; those are found in the Basic Health Info section at the bottom of the page. If the information can be applied to almost everyone, that’s where you’ll find it.
