Healthy Aging: Paleo vs. the growing shortage of nurses

Is it possible to run short of nurses? What would that look like? And how would their scarcity impact pre- and recent-retirees who have enjoyed lifelong easy access to adjunct healthcare staff? Unfortunately, all you have to do is look around you today, especially in the large but increasingly shaky long-term care industry. This “final destination” for the infirm elderly is already chronically short of nursing staff. According to McKnight’s News Service, 63 percent of facility nursing directors say they don’t have enough staff for proper care.[16]  Patients can be turned away, face substandard (even neglectful) care, or ultimately be

Gut Health and Brain Function

About two years ago, my husband and I did DNA tests.      The raw data received was interesting, including finding out exactly what percentage of my ancestry actually is Norwegian (less than I thought) as well as the option to “trace parts of my ancestry to a specific group of individuals from 1,000+ years ago” and more. It wasn’t until we had our raw data interpreted through Promethease (1), a literature retrieval system that builds a personal DNA report based on connecting a file of DNA genotypes to the scientific findings cited in SNPedia and took this report to

Healthy Aging: popular nutritional science vs. (Paleolithic) common sense — which should you trust?

As we age, good health—or lack thereof—increasingly defines the remainder of our lives. What we eat or don’t eat is a big part of this. Wise food choices rely on accurate scientific information. But how reliable is the “food science” available to most of us?  We often look to popular media—which is full of spin, misinterpretation, or fumbled facts. And the science behind most print, TV, online or social media “info bites” is often itself sloppy and biased. Punching through this double layer of outdated preconceptions, misinformation, lazy science (and lazy reporting) isn’t easy. One answer is common-sense eating (like

Nell’s Corner: How Healthy are Those Healthy Snacks?

Are Vegan, Nacho “Cheeze” Flavored, non-GMO, soy, dairy and nut-free, USDA Organic Certified kale chips all they’re cracked up to be? Gone are the days when the line between healthy and so unhealthy was a glaring red divide. Think back to a time when one might wander into any run of the mill grocery store and could either opt for one of two choices: Go down the into the small health food section(a concept I always found odd; if that was health food, what would the rest of the contents in the store be classified as anyway?) or produce section
