Its the holiday season, so of course we are going to talk about stress and fat! You know it! Starting with stress. As you may know, recent studies have shown that life expectancy for some groups in the United States is decreasing. Although a study a year ago showed that white middle aged Americans had a lower life expectancy than before, this latest study shows that this decline is happening pretty much across the board. Find out some of the numbers and some of things you can do about it with me and Dr. Donald Edmundson of Columbia University Medical Center's Center for Behavioral Cardiovascular Health.
