written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Monday, 29th July, 2013

Much of the conference I attended last weekend, titled Nutrition and the Brain, was about Alzheimer's dementia (AD). There are genetic factors for AD which we're handed at birth, like it or not, and environmental factors, which we can control. The latter include exercise, sleep and nutrition. We covered exercise in detail in Part One, so in this article, we'll look at how sleep ...

Kale the Powerhouse Vegetable
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Saturday, 27th July, 2013

In the Health and Sciences section of the Washington Post this week, I read a brief article about the benefits of kale. Last year, Anderson Cooper from CNN admitted that he had never had kale before and had to taste a kale leaf in front of an audience. It was entertaining to see Mr Cooper eating kale for the first time in his adult life. He took a bite of this super vegetable ...

on Tuesday, 23rd July, 2013

This weekend, I attended a conference in DC that I've been looking forward to for months - Nutrition and the Brain. While most medical conferences have some 'exciting' aspects when new research is revealed, here almost every speaker discussed something that can personally affect all our readers and patients. The talks covered many aspects of dementia - new concepts about causes ...

Women as Breadwinners
written by Thu Tran, MD,FACOG
on Wednesday, 10th July, 2013

I was on call this past weekend and in and out of the hospital everyday. Babies seemed to come only in the middle of the nights whenever I was on call. Luckily, I was able to run my usual 3.2 miles Sunday afternoon followed by a 50-minute swim in my next door neighbor’s pool, so the weekend call was not all bad. The Washington area has been plagued with a 90 degree heat ...

We left Maryland last Saturday for Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It has been a year and a half since I went on a family vacation with my father and my older brothers. The last vacation we had together was a Christmas cruise to the Caribbean with both my parents and our children. My mother died two months later after a fall in the hospital. For the rest of the year, we could not think ...
