News flash: Men and women are different. Before you roll your eyes and laugh, this really is a bit of a novel idea—at least in the medical field.

On November 12, 2017, nearly one third of U.S. adults—75 million or so—had high blood pressure (HBP). On November 13, that number jumped to around 105 million. Here’s what happened, and how it might affect you. An overnight high blood pressure epidemic? Did 30 million people “catch” HBP overnight?  Of course not—it’s not contagious. So […]

Natural Cholesterol Control

Once, there was just cholesterol. It was believed to make you fat and cause heart attacks, so everyone tried to get rid of it.
