    Egg freezing had long been labeled experimental, but the American Society for Reproductive Medicine declared that’s no longer the case. The group cited studies that found younger women are about as likely to get pregnant if they used frozen-and-thawed eggs for their infertility treatment as if they used fresh ones.

    A few years ago Mark Anthony was an Executive Chef for the largest hospital operating system in the country.
    He was also at his largest weight of 305 pounds. As he looked around at the patients in the hospitals, he discovered one common element to most of their conditions; they were almost all there for cholesterol-related problems. He thought to himself, “I’d better do something or I’m going to end up being one of the people in this hospital.”
