New “diet” pill promises dramatic weight loss

It looks like there’s a new weight loss wonder drug on the market.  I’m talking about semaglutide, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2017.  Of course, it wasn’t originally intended as a “diet pill.” It was actually designed to help control type 2 diabetes. But the fact that it’s now being touted for weight loss isn’t a […]

Combat anxiety at the dinner table

Even before the coronavirus hit our shores, some 40 million adults in the U.S.—and countless kids and teens—struggled with an anxiety disorder.   And now, a full year into the pandemic, it’s safe to say that we’re hurtling toward a full-blown national mental health crisis. (I don’t have the exact statistics on hand, but I’m willing to wager that these numbers have at least doubled.)  Of [...]
