Who says we have to suffer...to live a healthy happy vibrant life?

Red wine and dark chocolate... might seem decadent...but these guilty pleasures also might help us live longer...and healthier lives. Red wine and dark chocolate definitely improve an evening..but they also contain resveratrol..which lowers blood sugar. Red wine is a great source of catechins..which boost protective HDL cholesterol. Green tea? Protects your brain..helps you live longer..and soothes your spirit.

Food for Thought, the blog, is about living the good life...a life we create with our thoughts and our choices...and having fun the whole while!

I say lets make the thoughts good ones..and let the choices be healthy...exciting...and delicious! Bon Appetit!

What if everything you believe about mammograms has been wrong?

Ladies? Mammograms are the best way you can stay safe from breast cancer right?
Last year, results from a 25-year follow-up of two landmark studies tracking about 90,000 women concluded that mammography did not reduce breast cancer deaths at all.

In fact a mammogram means you are at least three times more likely to be diagnosed and treated for a cancer that never would have harmed you rather than saving your life. But perhaps the most infuriating thing is that scientific evidence for the harms of mammography has been available—published in medicine's most highly regarded journals—for decades.

Before you rush to that annual screening please read this very informative article on the reality of mammograms and the very real possibility of false positives and overdiagnosis.
