Health pearls

We live in an era of maybe “too much" medical information. As most of us know, medical information and opinions can drastically change over time. 

In Health Pearls, we will try to summarize some recent scientific studies for you in the hope that the information will help you lead a more healthy life. However, we hope we won’t have to oscillate back and forth, telling you one week to stop doing what we were advising the prior week! We do not claim to be experts in all medical fields but rest assured that we do practice what we preach.

We hope all the pearls we will be gathering will help you on your journey to good health and happiness!
