Discusses Women's Health

I’m going to the land of milk, honey and yogurt.  I’ll be in Tel Aviv for the next few weeks.  So I felt it was quite timely that I happened to come across an article posted on the internet site Medscape from the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research 2016 Annual Meeting.  (The meeting…

I’ll send a personal message next week when I finish seeing patients and close my practice. This week I want to write (albeit late) my usual medical newsletter on a subject that I’ve covered many times: cancer risk from obesity. That risk has just been re-iterated in a special report published in the New England…

I’m not the only one that expresses strong viewpoints (which I admit can be annoying, especially for my family). This week’s JAMA published a very opinionated article in its viewpoint section with accompanying statistics that are so significant that I feel compelled pass on… The article, written by the director of the CDC, expresses outrage…

I hesitate to admit to it (I am supposed to be in my office) but I just spent a week at the Golden Door, which is a sinfully wonderful spa in San Marcos, California. Many of the guests are here to lose weight; others simply to stay fit. We begin the day at 6 AM…

I haven’t eaten red meat in 30 years. I stopped when I read an article that showed that in the large Nurses Study, red meat consumption significantly increased risk of colon cancer. I decided, hey why don’t I try stopping and see how I feel. I immediately lost 8 pounds, felt great (although I missed…

I’m writing this website from Tel Aviv where I am visiting family. We intend to cook a turkey with stuffing as well as all the traditional sides and desserts. After carefully planning the meal (we had to special order a large turkey), I couldn’t help but notice a nutrition based study that was published in…

I have become acutely aware of the nutritional intake of young children since my two grandchildren have moved to their new home nearby. We frequently get to share meals in my kitchen, restaurants or (most often) my daughters home; but the choice of “agreeable” foods is significantly restricted. So when I saw the CDC report…

Since I tend to report on aspects of my personal life, I want to announce some personally exciting news: My daughter and her two small children moved to LA for a year. Not only are they living three minutes away…the children are in my temple school. I am delighted! I have also become involved with…

I was considering omitting a website article this week. It’s been a tough week… A very good friend died from virulent leukemia. But I am back in the office and seeing patients and yes, I did look at some of the articles. The one that I thought might be of interest was a report by…

This week I’m going to diverge from my usual review and commentary of articles published in peer-reviewed journals and write about one that I read in the New York Times. The headline read “Younger Skin Through Exercise” and after I dutifully read the pages devoted to the conflicts in the Ukraine and Syria, I was…
