Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Dietary resolution for the New Year

    The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute in Tampa, Florida recommends eating more fruit and veggies to help you be healthier and shed extra pounds.

    Here are some highlights.

    • Carry packets of dried fruit or an apple to help you eat at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.
    • Increase the portion size or number of fruits and vegetables on your plate and decreasing meat portions.
    • Bring your lunch to work at least 3 times a week, and include a single-serve microwavable vegetable and a piece of fruit.
    • Make a fruit salad to serve as a side dish or dessert.

    The bottom line?
    Be a leader! Co-workers, children, and others around you are more likely to consider trying different fruits and vegetables by watching or tasting some of the colorful foods you bring to the table.
