Healthy Aging: Can Diet Help You Prepare for the Hidden Costs of Medicare?

Most baby boomers haven’t saved enough to live even a modest, middle-income lifestyle after work ends [1,2]. Unexpected post-retirement expenses can quickly overwhelm resources – especially medical expenses. “Maintenance” medication expenses often take retirees by surprise as they transition to Medicare. Many don’t realize that Medicare has its own costs and, unlike private insurance, it has NO caps on most out of pocket expense. Even with supplementary insurance, some medical expenses never really go way – especially for drugs. Typical maintenance medications are designed to treat diseases of lifestyle – illnesses that are heavily associated with the nutritional and exercise

A great debate of our time: should I choose wild or farmed fish?

When I began my career in fisheries science 43 years ago, I had no idea a major debate over where we get our fish from would be as contentious as it has become.   Admittedly, I was drawn to the important questions of our future food supplies and the role fish would play in that future.  So, I ask here the burning question.  Should we buy fish sourced from the wild or from farms—also known as aquacultured fish?  Facts and science can lead us to an answer.  If I know only one thing, I know this: the best way to analyze this question is objectively, using facts and science as the basis

Why We Should Not Exclude Fat from Our Diets

We Need Fat in Our Diets   Avoiding fat in our diet was all the craze in the 80s and 90s, but the fact is that eating fat is how our bodies get their essential fatty acids. These fatty acids help our bodies in many ways, and we can’t produce them alone. We need to eat fat.   Our brains are 60% fatty acids, so some fat is necessary for ensuring healthy brain function. Fat gives our brain energy and helps fight off brain disease. Monounsaturated fats play a major role in improving our learning and memory.  And fat protects us. It’s a major building

Going Beyond the “Beyond Burger”: Do you really know what’s behind the craze and the glittery curtain?

When the stock of the meat-alternative company Beyond Meat (symbol BYND) debuted on the NASDAQ stock exchange on May 2, 2019, there were immediately high expectations.  Optimism for the company founders and their ambitions were being fueled by the high demand by some consumers for alternatives to traditional animal-based types of protein.  Beyond Meat representatives and their stock underwriters were not disappointed.  By the end of the first day of trading, the stock had climbed from $25 per share to an amazing price of $65.75—an astronomical one-day gain of 163 percent!  As a long-time stock market observer, I can confidently say this type of
