Does Meditation Boost Brain Health?
Following up on previous
research showing that people who have practiced meditation for a
long time have more gray matter in their brains, a small new study
finds that their brains also shrink less as they age and they have
stronger connections in the brain itself.
Restaurant Calorie Counts Can Miss the Mark:
In some states, it's
already a requirement that restaurants with numerous locations must
post the calorie counts of their foods. And, soon, federal law will
require more restaurants across the country to provide such
information to its patrons.
