by Liubov Edwards    •    April 30, 2015

A new study shows that dining out can be directly linked to hypertension risk. People with hypertension are at risk for kidney failure and stroke.

by Carissa Andrews    •    April 27, 2015

Pain in life is inevitable, but the way we manage it can vary from person to person. Some people are able to grin and bear it, while others might cringe just at the thought.

by Carissa Andrews    •    April 20, 2015

Let’s face it, life gets busy; and when it does, sometimes the last thing on our minds is sex. I mean, who’s thinking of doing the dirty while changing a screaming baby’s poo diaper? Or when you’re feeling like a bloated orangutan that just downed a pint of Tom and Jerry’s because the stress of the day got the better of you?

In modern society, we’ve lost our way when it comes to not only accepting the wisdom and benefit that comes with age and experience – but we’ve also tried to shut out essential elements of what it means to be a senior. Gone are the days of revering and respecting the elders in our communities (which, by the way, is something this Minnesotan woman feels should really be reintroduced), and in are the days when only the virility of the young is admired most.

by Natasha Tracy    •    April 9, 2015

Childhood-onset schizophrenia is rare. The onset of schizophrenia is usually between the late teens and mid-30s with men experiencing a first psychotic episode, on average, in their early to middle 20s while women experience their first episode a little later, typically in their late 20s.
