It Beats a Whole-Wheat Donut

Worker Bees’ Daily Bites:

Here’s the clickativity!

Asthmatic

The world’s top three asthma experts are presenting a shocking new finding [7]: that asthma you’ve been treating may be a different health problem altogether.

Stent Stunt

And another potential case of seriously misguided therapies: stents versus … everything else [8]. Turns out that natural therapies (weight loss, exercise, reducing bad cholesterol) are still your best bet.

Helpful information: Wondering about the advice to take an aspirin a day? Many doctors advise it, and the FDA recommends it [9], but given the side effects and differing studies, we encourage you to think twice before following that recommendation. In fact, here is a refreshingly brief, balanced analysis [10] of the news that women in particular should take a daily aspirin. It’s worth reading in its entirety to learn about the critical differences in types of studies – and how this has an impact on your health!

A safe, natural alternative to aspirin: white willow [11].

When aspirin is O.K.: For those who have suffered from a heart attack, aspirin does help. And in the event of a heart attack, taking an aspirin immediately can make all the difference.

(Psst: mixing aspirin with other drugs [12] is a recipe for trouble).

Super Pizza Saves the Day

The effort to create a healthy pizza [14] rivaling the powers of the X-men is admirable and better than, say, whole wheat donuts [15].

But, you could just eat the healthy ingredients and leave the dough and processed meats out of the equation. The campaign to make pizza, donuts and other hand-held foods healthy is just begging for a sociology grad student’s analysis. What is it about the need to hold one’s food? Burritos, pizza slices and bagels enjoy success not seen since the aluminum can was given its complementary can opener (it only took 40 years [16]).
