    The Powerful Effects of the Human Voice
    For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved listening to the radio. The mellifluous voices of my favorite programs’ hosts—from David Allan Boucher, the DJ of the easy-listening nighttime show "Bedtime Magic", to Ira Glass, of NPR’s "This American Life"—never fail to calm me down and make me feel right at home.

    The Dangers of Prepackaged Food in Nursing

    The Dangers of Prepackaged Food in Nursing
    They snuck up on us. They—the prepackaged foods—entered our stores and our homes slowly at first…and before we knew it, they tried to take over. Those shiny packages whispered, "Resistance is futile. We're quick, we're easy, we're what you want…." Starting as frozen TV dinners in the 1950s—those plastic-tasting foods in foil trays—prepackaged foods have morphed into gourmet pizzas and finger-food ...

    6 Soothing Sounds to Beat Stress

    6 Soothing Sounds to Beat Stress
    In 2007, I had the good fortune to live on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, for a year. While I was there, fewer than sixty-five thousand permanent residents occupied this 622-square-mile Eden, which meant that there were almost as many roosters as there were humans living there. Far away from the clanging trains, rattling jackhammers, buzzing bumper-to-bumper traffic, and other city ...

    Is it Cheaper to Be Vegan, Vegetarian, or a Meat Eater?

    Here's an interesting chart from LearnVest that breaks down the daily costs, in dollars and cents, of different diets: meat eaters, pescetarians, vegetarians, and vegans. According to their tallying, vegans have the least expensive diets, and meat eaters have the priciest, which certainly flies in the face of the arguments that vegetarianism is a choice limited to the hippie fringes ...

    Nurses Who Smoke

    Nurses Who Smoke
    It’s crazy, huh. Nurses are at the front line of tobacco treatment and prevention, yet they’re the most likely of all healthcare providers to light up. Why is that?

    How Colors Alter Mood

    How Colors Alter Mood
    As a kid, I relished organizing M&Ms by color and eating the “best” ones first and relegating the “gross” tan-colored ones to the trash. To this day, I reach for yellow and red peanut M&Ms first, believing that they’re far superior to all other varieties without really understanding why. Then I read about a study that showed these colors to be ...

    Can the pink ribbon be saved from corporate cause marketing, and actually mean something for women's health?

It shows up everywhere: NFL players’ chin guards, inflatable rafts for playing ...
