September 17th, 2017 Posted by Advice 0 thoughts on “What’s Going on in Wellness: August 2017”

This month: Hydration is key during the summer, and the Environmental Working Group has your tap water questions covered. We’re also defining “natural flavors” and “plant based diets”, finding old axioms on weight loss to still be true, and the conversation continues about coconut oil.


Links of the Month:


EWG’s Tap Water Database – EWG does it again! They’ve created a super-practical resource to assess the quality of your tap water. Enter your home or office zip code and find out if testing has found any pollutants in your tap water. Want to know what to do about it? They’ll also let you know which types of filters will address the specific pollutants in your water. Genius!


What Does ‘Natural Flavors’ Really Mean? – An explanation of a common packaged-food ingredient, easy enough for a child to understand.


Meal Frequency and Timing Linked to BMI – Eating your calories earlier in the day (think big breakfast, small dinner) can reduce your BMI.


These 9 Behaviors Could Cut Your Dementia Risk by 35 Percent – Practical and somewhat surprising ways to preserve healthy brain function.


21 of the Best Arguments for and Against Coconut Oil – There’s been a lot of talk about the nutritional value of coconut oil in the news lately. We’re still using it, and it’s good to know the facts.


Plant based diet? Sure, but first understand what that really means. – Bottom line: what you do eat matters as much as, if not more than, what you don’t eat.
