Here are this weekend’s reading diversions for your personal enlightenment, and of course for you to share with your friends and family. Have a terrific weekend!
Fibromyalgia is not considered to be a “disease” by the conventional medical standards but is recognized and referred to as a “syndrome.” Although there are no specific blood tests, x-rays or any other type of technology that is presently accepted by conventional medicine for diagnosis of this condition, the diagnosis is based on clinical findings from the history and physical exam (pain in tender points).
Barbra Streisand: Why Heart Disease Is Treated Like a Boys’ Club
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in our country, more than all cancers combined. Today, heart disease kills more women than men. When I started to think about this, it was not surprising. More women are taking on the stresses of juggling household demands, of being wife, mother and breadwinner. All of these modern day strains add to higher blood pressure, lack of physical activity, quick and unhealthy food choices, and weight gain — all major contributors to heart disease.

A young man says, “When I go out with a woman I can always tell on the first date if she’s from a divorced family. The women from divorced families are over-anxious, eager to please. They’re exhausting.”
Christine Egan: When Your Laptop Becomes the Third Wheel
Don’t worry, this behavior is perfectly harmless. We’re just catching up on a little work, or sending a few e-mails, or comparing airfares, or browsing real estate listings, or reviewing clips from last night’s “Daily Show with Jon Stewart” (often without headphones; how annoying is that?). We’re multitasking, people! This is actually a productive use of our evening hours. Besides, we’re just watching TV together. We’re not even really watching it; it’s just on. Isn’t the point that we’re together in the same room? No big deal. It’s not like we’re on a date.
Dr. Frank Lipman: 20 Tips to Curb Sugar Cravings and Kick the Addiction
Eat three meals and two snacks or five small meals a day. For many people, if they don’t eat regularly, their blood sugar levels drop, they feel hungry and are more likely to crave sweet sugary snacks.
The Creepiest Children’s Books Ever (PICTURES)
Growing up, we all had at least one book that affected our psyche – some in more positive ways than others. The right book at the right time can teach children a lot more than any advice an adult can impart. But then there’s these. Not only are these books creepy and/or hilarious to adults, but any kid who reads them is most likely in for a traumatizing treat.
Marie Pasinski, M.D.: Retaining Your Brain’s Neuroplasticity
You should also pay attention to how you nourish and replenish your brain. As a neurologist who cares for patients with Alzheimer’s disease, I tell family members concerned about prevention to be as physically active as possible and to eat a nutritionally rich and balanced diet. (I recommend skipping the supplements. They will never replace fresh, unprocessed foods and those rich in antioxidants like Omega-3s.) In future blogs, I will explain more about how to nourish your neurons and other ways to keep your brain more resilient to disease, all of which will positively impact every aspect of your life.

Joel Schwartzberg: Top Ten “Must Knows” for Divorced Dads
When I first sought advice regarding my own divorce in 2007, I went to the source of all reasonable and well-informed insight, Google. What I found was a chorus of certain doom: I’d go bankrupt, my kids would see shrinks forever, I’d never find the “woman of my dreams,” and I’d spend my days mostly exploring new ways of being pathetic.
