Discusses Women's Health

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’m trying to catch up on my medical literature reading since I’ve returned from Tel Aviv. There was an interesting article in the July 26 issue of JAMA published in the clinical trials update section titled Weight Gain Not an Issue With Mediterranean Diet. Just a reminder, a Mediterranean diet is high in vegetable fats…

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…

There has been a lot of media attention of late to calcium and to some extent Vitamin D. An article in the New York Times suggested that we may be overdoing calcium supplementation and that calcium can cause calcification of the coronary arteries as well as renal stones. I’ve been asked about this by several…

I have always thought that there was too much concern about GMO’s (genetically modified organisms) and that genetic engineering of our food sources might be the way to prevent future starvation in our overpopulated world. After all, genetically engineered crops are touted as a way to increase yields, allow plants to thrive when irrigated less…

A part of healthcare diligence is getting an eye examination. After the age of 40, many women are told by their friendly ophthalmologist “I see the beginning of cataracts”. Or worse, especially as we get older “You have cataracts.” That pronouncement does not equate with total loss of vision for most Americans who have access…

As I sipped my afternoon cup of coffee, I came across an article in the journal Menopause that examined the association between caffeine and menopausal symptoms. How relevant I thought…after all 85% of the US population consumes some form of caffeine containing beverage daily. And 80% of women going through perimenopausal and menopause have vasomotor…

I rarely write website articles on prenatal issues, but I thought that the fish debate was one that would be interesting, not just to my patients who are considering getting or are already pregnant, but also to their mothers, mother-in-laws and the rest of the family and friends who eagerly offer advice as soon as…

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…

This week I’m going to give a lecture at the annual conference of the Academy for Anti-Aging in Las Vegas. They asked me to give a talk months ago, and hey, a weekend in Vegas sounded great. I will report on the conference and my talk next week. When I power-pointed my talk, I included…
