This isn’t 21st-century superficiality: “Thick hair has always been associated with youth and masculinity,” says Albert Mannes, Ph.D., a University of Pennsylvania researcher who’s studied perceptions of balding. “Hair loss signals aging.” But baldness can be deceiving: Two-thirds of men face hair loss by age 35, and a bad genetic hand is often to blame. Male-pattern baldness is an inherited sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone (DHT, a…

    This week I watched the Gabby Douglas Story on Netflix and was amazed by her passion and drive at such a young age. Watching a child who started out as a poor young girl doing cartwheels in the house to Olympic gold medalist is nothing short of inspiring. As I watched her story I kept telling myself ‘some people are born to do what they do.’ They may be walking around with a dormant talent waiting to be discovered. And once they get a taste of their innate passion, they become unstoppable. Growing up I wanted to participate in any and every club I could get my hands on. Odyssey of the…

I can’t tell you the exact amount because I lost all of them after my daughter knocked over my laptop of seven years, and it was not worth the price of repair. Then what do you know, the external hard drive I used as a backup crashed the same week. The only photos from that event I have are web-sized versions I happened to send to my mother-in-law.

  • How is Fertility Linked to Parental Age?

    Deborah Smith
    29 Aug 2014 | 10:17 pm
    Modern societal demands have led couples to delay their child-bearing age into the 30s and 40s. It is known that fertility of a woman declines with her age. Thirty five years is the typical timeframe for women, after which risks of infertility, pregnancy complications and fetal abnormalities tend to rise. The effect of paternal age on fertility is, however, not clearly established. Moreover, it is often difficult to isolate male age-related fertility problems, because most of these cases are associated with advanced female age as well. This article summarizes key medical findings on parental…
  • How Serious are Uterine Fibroids?

    Deborah Smith
    26 Aug 2014 | 10:02 pm
    Uterine fibroids, also known as leiomyomas or myomas, are benign (non-cancerous) uterine growths. These typically appear in women during her childbearing years, and affect up to 1 in 5 women. Fibroids are rarely found in women under 20 years of age. Uterine fibroids do not increase a woman’s likelihood of getting uterine cancer. Uterine fibroids develop by cell growth in the myometrium—the muscular uterine tissue.
