And when families congregate for the holidays or special occasions, it's always fun to put members together for a family portrait, which can sometimes include three, or four generations. And on very rare occasions, a family might be able to bring together as many as five age brackets.

Among physicians and physiologists it’s a hot topic.
It’s this: The importance of regular physical exercise. Done frequently and correctly, the scientific marvel that is us will thank you for it. Our brain included.

Just about everywhere, May 2017: Being "mentally healthy" means more than just having all one's marbles. True mental disorders may be infrequent, but research shoes some of us are definitely mentally healthier than others. Take a look at these guidelines; then ask yourself if you could benefit from these "workouts".

a) Do you enjoy life? Like the song says, "Any fool can do it; ain't nothing to it but to do it." A proper focus can help you enjoy the present, plan for the future and learn from the past. Don't worry about things over which you have no control; if today stinks, there's always tomorrow.

Champaign, Illinois, April 2017—A study underway at the University of Illinois (UofI) links the consumption of a pigment found in leafy greens to the preservation of what scientists call “crystallized intelligence,” or the ability to use the skills and knowledge one has acquired over a lifetime.

Everywhere, April 2017—(We wrote this piece about seven years ago, but it’s still potent. Here’s a freshened-up version, for new and present readers alike.)

The genetic "gifts" we inherit from our forebears are not always welcome.

While some genetic gifts can be just what the doctor ordered, there are others that can cause serious health problems. And it's been found that the potency of these offenders is linked to environmental factors such as diet and lifestyle.
