Healthy Headlines: The Scoop on Salt, Drowsy Doctors, and Contentious Coffee

Posted by

The White Stuff: An endocrinologist, a neuroscientist, and a biomedical researcher walk into a bar roundtable on how much salt you really need. (Greatist)

Eat Already: Much to researchers' dismay (seriously, they sound close to tears), a 20-year study on calorie-restriction in monkeys shows that near-starvation doesn't prolong life. (The New York Times)

Open Up and Say....Yaaawn: Almost half of American doctors say they're exhausted. Yikes! Check out our guide to finding a physician you trust. (Time)

Joe, No: Could you give up your morning cup of coffee? The jury is still out (and reports of the brew's health benefits continue to roll in), but physician Mark Hyman makes a case for jettisoning the java. (Dr. Frank Lipman)
