  9. Conclusions Though of interest, this study doesn't provide strong evidence that you should eat mushrooms if you want to lose weight.

This could have led to people reporting feeling fuller. The study only looked at mushrooms compared to meat – people might report feeling fuller after eating other fo...
  10. BOSTON (CBS) – Cold and flu season is upon us. So how do we stay healthy with all this coughing and sniffling in our midst? One way is to reduce the spread of germs in the doctor’s office. Many pediatricians’ waiting rooms have books and toys to occupy our little ones while we’re waiting to see the doctor, but these can harbor germs, especially this time of year.

And of course, make sure your kids get all of their recommended vaccines, including the flu shot if they’re over the age of six months. The time to vacci...

Looking at the medical records of more than 20,000 women, researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that moms who gave birth in the spring or winter had a lower risk of postpartum depression compared to moms who gave birth in the fall or summer They also found that women who were obese, non-white, and did not get an epidural or other anesthesia during delivery appeared to be more likely to develop postpartum depression.
