Health Tip of the Day

The Best Nutrition Advice

When you need professional nutrition or diet advice, don't be fooled by the titles "certified nutrition specialist" or "certified nutrition consultant." Although these sound important, they are not associated with formal nutrition training. People do little more than pay a membership fee to get them. For the best advice, work with a registered dietician (R.D.).

Healthy Living

There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
