This Week In Health News

Every week, The S-Life Mag will make sure you’re in the know about the latest scientific studies and current events pertaining to health, wellness, nutrition and more. This is the stuff you need to know for your body, mind and soul!

 

TOP STORY!

  • The Environmental Working Group has released its 2017 “Dirty Dozen” report on the produce most likely to be contaminated with harmful pesticides. Topping this year’s list are strawberries, the most contaminated of which tested positive for 20 different toxic chemicals. Spinach ranks highly as well, with twice as much pesticide residue as other produce, along with apples, peaches, grapes, pears, potatoes, tomatoes and sweet bell peppers. On the other hand, asparagus, sweet corn, mangoes, eggplant and avocados are among the “Clean Fifteen” with the lowest pesticide levels. Want to lighten your toxic load? Choose organic produce as often as possible when you shop, particularly if you’re putting fruits and veggies from the “Dirty Dozen” in your cart. (Friendly reminder: all Sakara meals are made with organic produce!)

 

MORE GOOD STUFF…

 

 

  • Texas Democrat Jessica Farrar turned the tables on conservative lawmakers by filing a bill that imposes health restrictions on men, including one that they should be fined for masturbating. While the bill is satirical, the point it aims to make is serious—Farrar wanted to draw attention to anti-abortion legislation in the state.

 

 

  • The GOP’s health care reform bill isn’t winning any popularity contests. A number of top medical organizations, including the AARP, the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, have come out in opposition to the proposal. And a review by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office determined the plan would result in 24 million more Americans losing their coverage by 2026.

 

  • In related health care news, another GOP bill would penalize people who declined to participate in genetic testing as part of workplace wellness programs, forcing them to pay higher insurance premiums.

 

  • First-year medical residents can expect longer shifts under new rules that eliminate the 16-hour time cap.
