The question is, with all the thousands of courses and products out there that promise stress management miracles, how can one evaluate them?


Women Multi-task Better than Men

Professor Keith Laws at the University of Hertfordshire's School of Psychology in the UK looked at multitasking in 50 male and 50 female undergraduates and found that although the sexes performed equally when they multitasked on simple maths and map reading tasks, women far excelled men when it came to planning how to search for a lost key, with 70 per cent of women performing better than their average male counterparts.


Low Vitamin D associated with Cognitive Decline

According to a report in the July 12 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine older adults with low levels of vitamin D appear more likely to experience declines in thinking, learning and memory over a six-year period.

An estimated 40 percent to 100 percent of older adults in the United States and Europe are deficient in Vitamin D, This deficiency has been linked to fractures, various chronic diseases and death.


Pregnancy and Prenatal Vitamins

What are prenatal vitamins?
For a mother's health, and the health of her baby, she is advised to take so-called ‘prenatal vitamins’ during pregnancy. These are specially formulated multivitamins that make up for any nutritional deficiencies in the mother's diet. While the supplements contain numerous vitamins and minerals, their folic acid, iron, and calcium content are especially important.
