Study author Dr. Yun-Chul Hong concludes, “I suggest consumers try to eat fresh […]
A recent small preliminary study revealed that skilled spinal manipulation to treat joint fixations in the neck lowered the pulse rate of three-quarters of the men and about a one-third of the women who participated in the study.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota and Duke University have found an association between the consumption of sports and energy drinks and higher consumption of sugary drinks and smoking. Healthcare professionals are concerned about this growing cluster of unhealthy behaviors among adolescents and believe that a push for healthy hydration habits is needed. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that energy drinks should not be consumed, as they offer no health benefits and over-stimulate the nervous system.
