Which Fish Has the Most EPA/DHA?

Fish is the ideal food to eat when trying to improve your diet. It is a rich source of high quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and, most importantly, the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The benefits of eating fish are connected to their content of these important fatty acids. Since the 1980s it has been well documented that consumption of fish is correlated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. More recently, research has demonstrated that the risk of certain cancers (breast, prostate, colon, and lung) and other chronic diseases such as diabetes,rheumatoid arthritis, and depression, is lower with regular fish consumption.
There are important safety issues to consider regarding fish consumption. The most common warning concerns mercury content, highest in certain tunas, swordfish, and shark. Mercury is toxic as it accumulates in our bodies, particularly in pregnant women and young children. FDA recommendations suggest that pregnant women or those …

Black Women and Fibroids the Silent Epidemic That’s Screaming in Our Community

Fibroids are more common in African-American women than in women of other racial groups. One study showed that fibroids are three times more common in African-American women than in Caucasian women. Additionally, fibroids tend to be larger and occur at an earlier age in African-Americans (The Philadelphia Black Women’s Health Project).
Instances of fibroids are of epidemic proportions among Black women and yet we are not hearing about this issue in our magazines, television shows or on our blogs. If left untreated or diagnosed too late fibroids can cause heavy and painful menstruation, painful sexual intercourse, urinary frequency, hinder pregnancy and may even lead to a hysterectomy. Black women develop fibroids earlier than their white counterparts and have more sever symptoms. While many feminist groups cry out for reproductive health this issue is ignored, could it be because it affects Black women at disproportionate rates? Like most of America the …

Time to Change the Conversation About Body Image

The fashion world appears to have come to the decision that being healthy is in. However, calls to action against unrealistic depictions of models and celebrities in fashion publications and other media have yielded few results. Publishing a few articles, about the deadliness of eating disorders, will not thwart dangerous is because the crux of the problem lies with flawed mentalities that have spanned generations. The body image discussion needs to be steered toward changing fundamental attitudes. As long as people are identified by the size of their bodies, this issue will never go away.
Currently, it is second nature to casually make a comment about a person’s weight. Terms such as “fat” and “skinny” are thrown around with no regard to what they actually mean. For instance, “Do you know Darcy? No? Dark hair? A bit on the chubby side?” is a perfectly acceptable way to begin a conversation …
