Healthy Blood Pressure. Healthy Mind

When it comes to high blood pressure, there is more you have to keep in mind (pun intended). High blood pressure may impact our cognitive abilities, because it may damage our brains. Hypertension may accelerate the mental decline that often leads to Alzheimer’s disease.

Study Shows Vitamin D Deficiency May Increase Risk For Premature Death

Several years ago actress Gwyneth Paltrow shared that she had a severe vitamin D deficiency. "My doctors tested my vitamin D levels which turned out to be the lowest thing they had never seen -- not a good thing," Paltrow said, according to this Food Matters article from 2010.

Attention Costco Shoppers. Hot Dog & Soda Will Always Be $1.50, But You Can’t Put a Price On Health

Recently, consumers speculated that the popular $1.50 hot dog and soda combo would increase in price due to inflation. It makes sense considering that a few months ago the price of Costco food court’s chicken bake increased from $2.99 to $3.99 “and its 20-ounce soda rose by 10 cents to 69 cents,” according to an CNBC report from July. Shoppers, however, can “rest assured” that the hot dog and soda combo will not go up a single penny.

This Truth About Fat May Be Hard to Digest
