Heart guidelines authors defend method of calculating risk
Reuters
Top cardiologists who devised new U.S. guidelines for reducing risk of heart disease strenuously defended their risk-calculation tool from criticism that it greatly overestimates health risks and the need to be treated with statins. Two Harvard professors, Dr. Paul Ridker and Dr. Nancy Cook, sparked the controversy by saying the guidelines overestimate risk of developing heart disease up to 150 percent for some populations, according to a report in Monday's New York Times. The report said their criticisms would appear Tuesday in the British medical journal The Lancet.

    MENTAL HEALTH


    Integrative mental health and the healing power of connection
    The Huffington Post
    As a psychiatrist who is passionate about integrative mental health, I was excited to spend five days last week in St. Petersburg, Fla. for the annual conference of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. At the conference, I learned that even more than I previously realized, our ecosystem and environment have a profound effect on our happiness and wellness, and can either give us easy access to good food and healthy activities or add toxins and contaminants to our already stressed bodies.

The walls around you are lined with pink and orange-hued bricks of salt. As you slide into one of the zero-gravity chairs, you hear the sound of crashing waves streaming from overhead speakers.
