Your Beating Heart

Hearts are all around in February...now take a moment to appreciate yours. Right now, STOP and feel your heartbeat. Depending on your activity and fitness level, your heart could be beating up to 115,200 times per day!

Take care of that precious organ. Did you know that h eart disease is the #1 killer of men and women in the U.S.? Yes, for women it's also the #1 killer, but 47% of women surveyed as part of a recent study did not know that heart disease is their gender's leading cause of death.
Fresh or Frozen?

fresh vs frozen
Are frozen fruits and vegetables as nutritious as fresh? 
This question pops up periodically and recent studies completed at UC-Davis give us insight to which is best.

Freezing can slightly alter the nutritional composition of fruits and vegetables, sometimes in favor of the frozen product and sometimes in favor of the fresh, but over all, "there's no clear winner," said Ali Bouzari, who has done studies comparing fresh and frozen produce and now runs Pilot R+D, a culinary research and development company in Sonoma County, Calif. "It really depends which plant you're talking about."

Though vitamins can degrade in fresh fruits and vegetables over time, many nutrients in foods are much hardier than most people assume, Dr. Bouzari said.
