Does fish fraud put your health at risk or just cheat you out of better quality seafood?This sounds a little all too familiar: Europe was recently caught passing horse meat as beef to consumers, and the nightmare of not knowing what truly lies on your dinner plate continues here in the United States with fish. One-third of the seafood sold in grocery stores and restaurants is mislabeled. Back in February 2013, Oceana, an international group advocating for the protection of oceans, conducted a study that collected DNA samples from over 1,200 fish from 674 retail outlets in 21 states to investigate how honestly the fish was labeled. The study found that the most collected fish, snapper, was mislabeled 87 percent of the time and tuna was mislabeled 59 percent. However, those aren't the only fish consumers need to worry about. Restaurants and grocery stores counterfeit other common fish, replacing wild salmon with farm-raised salmon and tilapia for a more-expensive grouper. The businesses use cheaper species in place of a higher-cost fish to save money, all while ripping off you, the consumer. Americans are eating about $80 billion worth of seafood annually, which increases the demand; especially for certain fish that are more popular than others. But does fish fraud put your health at risk or just cheat you out of better quality seafood? Gib Brogan, Oceana's Northeast representative, speaks openly on the findings from Oceana's studies, the potential health threats and how to protect yourself from seafood fraud.
Nutrition is essential for preventing and managing diabetes, but balancing your diet isn't easy. What exactly is a healthy diabetes diet?Type-2 Diabetes is a chronic condition caused by high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Type-2 diabetes is an international health crisis and is one of the most common non-contagious diseases. An estimated 366 million people had diabetes in 2011, and those numbers continue to rise. Many people transition through a "pre-diabetes" stage, where blood glucose is elevated but is not high enough to be considered diabetes. Research proves that people with pre-diabetes can take steps to reduce their risk of developing diabetes. A healthy lifestyle, including diet, exercise and stress management is the best defense against the disease. It's no secret that proper nutrition is essential for preventing and managing diabetes, but balancing your diet is much easier said than done. What exactly is a healthy diabetes diet? Registered Dietitian, Barbara Allan, provides strategies for preventing and managing diabetes in an easy-to-follow 10-step program. She also shares recipes from her book, The The Diabetes Prevention & Management Cookbook, which are specifically designed to help manage blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol, while supporting a healthy lifestyle.

Doctors who rely solely on PSA testing are initiating aggressive prostate cancer treatments just to be safe. But it is often unnecessary.Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men.

This aggressive approach is done “just to be safe.” But is it necessary? In most cases the answer is an emphatic NO. New diagnostic tests can help doctors target men who really have prostate cancer and need treatment, rather than relying solely on PSA testing.
