    Why oh why do they keep including recipes that have no nutritional information?????????????? I'm tired of going to all the trouble of entering the data only to find out they aren't that low calorie. Why can't they only include ones that have the nutritional values that spark people need ?? - 6/6/2011   5:58:28 PM

    My problem with most of these 'healthy' headlines is the low-quality sources: these are by journalists not specialists. Shrug...yeah, it's a blog, I know, but still they are high on generalizations and spin and low on real information. - 6/6/2011   10:30:17 AM
    Liked the chocolate granola bar recipe. My girls will love them too! - 6/6/2011   9:38:35 AM

    The microchip article is horrifying. And we don't take vacations because we can't afford it! Bills are too high and wages are too low. I generally work full time but still look for more paying jobs so I can make ends meet. Any so-called "vacation" time is unpaid and comes with a heavy dose of guilt. - 6/5/2011   11:44:37 PM

    "The Top 5 don't for primary care physicians" was interesting. All of those don'ts need justification for being ordered. - 6/5/2011   7:28:50 PM

    I really liked "8 way to make your town healthier." I've been trying to get my office to go for a "healthy snack" day instead of "treat" day. It took awhile to catch on, but most people are now bringing healthy snacks, or bringing two options so people have choices. I also liked the idea of forming a walking group in the neighborhood. This is something I may have to start! - 6/5/2011   4:50:11 PM
    Amber512: Probably because it's been used on pro-anorexia websites for a decade or so.

    ETA: Seriously, Google the word. The entire first page is pro-ana sites, with the exception of a link the to the Wikipedia page for "Pro-Ana." - 6/5/2011   2:12:52 PM

    I don't know why, but the term "thinspiration" really bugs me. - 6/5/2011   11:52:55 AM
