Pepsi-Cola recently made headlines by stating that it plans to drop aspartame from its' products. But is there any truth to all the hype about the dangers of aspartame?
Amy Melendez's insight:

I’m pretty sure it was Leslie Sansone who said, “The best workout is the one you’ll do.” If the workout you’ll do is one that is born of an active past-time that you enjoy, all the better – especially since many of those options can also be family activities. If you can teach your kids at a young age to enjoy being active, they’re more likely to live a healthier, active lifestyle as adults.
Supermarket giant, Kroger, bans BPA from store brands and receipts.
Amy Melendez's insight:
While there is no conclusive scientific evidence that minimal exposure to BPA in can linings poses any risks to consumers, Kroger has begun a process that we believe will result in the removal of BPA in the linings of canned goods in all of our corporate brand items,” he told the Columbus-Times Dispatch. “Customers are interested in the issue and what the company is doing on the issue.”
"Have you ever heard the saying, “Muscle weighs more than fat?” Perhaps at some point in your life you were working your butt off in the gym in an attempt to lose weight. During this time, you hopped onto the scale weekly, sometimes even daily. Some days were better than others. Sometimes the numbers on the scale decreased, but to your dismay, this wasn’t always the case. Some weigh-ins showed that the scale read higher than your starting weight. Other days the scale wouldn’t budge. This would depress and sadden you. To soothe your worries and soften the blow of the scale, perhaps a family member, friend, personal trainer, or doctor told you that you shouldn’t freak out because the scale is showing that there has been a gain in muscle and that “muscle weighs more than fat.” Maybe you relaxed after hearing this.

"Why do neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s affect only the elderly? More than a century of research into the causes of dementia has focused on the clumps and tangles of abnormal proteins that appear in the brains of people with neurodegenerative diseases. However, scientists know that at least one piece of the puzzle has been missing because some people with these abnormal protein clumps show few or no signs of cognitive decline...."
