The holidays are such a festive time of year – travel to see family, visits with friends, and parties galore.

Whenever possible I buy my vegetables from organic sources, especially if they’re on the Dirty Dozen list, because they provide the most bang for my nutritional…

Should You Worry About Your Tampons and Pads?

By Dr. Marisa Weiss on September 6th, 2012 Tags: ,

Have you recently checked out the feminine hygiene aisle in the drugstore? It’s as varied as a bookstore! What a huge change in feminine products. Pads that were once bulky and held in by pins and straps are now thin and self-stick. Old fashioned powder-pink-and-blue packaging is now hot pink and lime green.
