Gender-Specific Allergies?

The Soy/Skin Connection

Soy-based foods such as tofu and edamame may preserve collagen, a protein that makes skin firmer. —National Institutes of Health

Side Sleepers, Rejoice

Research has found that sleeping on your side is better than resting on your back or stomach when it comes to eliminating brain waste, the chemicals that build up and could potentially cause cognitive issues such as Alzheimer’s. —The Journal of Neuroscience

An Aspirin a Day

Taking low dose aspirin appears to reduce breast cancer risk. —Breast Cancer Research

Forget BMI

Experts now say your waist-to-height ratio is a better indicator of estimated body fat. Here’s how to do it: Divide your waist circumference by your height to calculate your body fat and visceral fat mass. That number should be less than half your height for optimum health. —Plos One

23

The percentage of women who report tossing and turning the week before their period. And 30 percent of women say that they have trouble sleeping during their period. —National Sleep Foundation
