Do we really need another book about food and how to eat? Yes! Dr. Nancy Irven has designed a straightforward and easily understood class on nutrition at the local high school. Her volunteer efforts have had astonishing results among her students. Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! is written in a simple style with her high school students in mind. Through the humor, you'll find thought-provoking observations on how we nourish our bodies. She takes an integral look into the diets of average fourteen year olds and their perceptions of the food they eat. She teaches them to want better food and how to make better choices. Dr. Irven's passion is fueled by researching nutritional literature over the past twenty years. "The experts are now stating that the upcoming generation will not outlive its parents because of current trends of child obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer." "I feel we must get their attention and do something productive once we get it." "Do they know what is and is not healthy?" "They do not. They need to be taught." "European countries have lower infant mortality rates than the United States. We are one of the richest countries with the most advanced medical system and yet our babies are dying." Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! is written for Dr. Irven's patients, students, friends, family, and for those of you who are still confused about healthy foods. Please Don't Eat the Wallpaper! will change the way you think about food.

I was really fat and unhealthy as a child—I ate a diet of only meat and rice, and drank six bottles of milk a day, and actually used a baby bottle up until about the second grade. Now I’m lactose intolerant and a vegan. Wow. Yeah, and now I want to educate Chinese people about Western vegan food. This summer, I’m actually hoping to have a toast pop-up in Shanghai. A toast pop-up! Yeah, we’ll serve five or six different kinds of healthy bread that we’l

What 3 Things Can I Do to Extend the Length of My Life?

JEFFREY KLUGER SOMEWHERE OUT THERE IS A BUNCH of people who are going to live to be 100. In the U.S. alone, there were more than 77,000 centenarians in 2014. Still, that number is very small: centenarians represent less than a quarter of 1% of the entire U.S. population. So how do you get to be one of them? You could invent a time machine, start your life over and do everything they did, or try to find a way to borrow their genes. Failing that, here are three things that longevity researchers recommend you start—and keep—doing. STAY CURIOUS. Once you’ve got a few years on you, it’s easy to

How To Predict A Baby's First Word

After about a year, give or take, of staring and babbling, babies eventually begin to say their first words. Mama. Ball. Dog. Millions of parents all over the world know this. Now, researchers at Indiana University and the Georgia Institute of Technology have discovered new clues about how that actually happens—how babies learn those initial words. It turns out, the researchers report in a new paper, that a baby’s first words are likely tied to their visual experiences and how they see the world around them. That might sound obvious, but Linda Smith, a professor of psychological and brain scie
