letter from the editor

Love the skin you’re in? This summer, fuel that romance by amplifying your dermal dedication. Welcome to the Skin Issue, bursting with a myriad of exciting topics all about staying safe under the sun. Our skin is not only our body’s largest organ, but a living, breathing ecosystem a “microbiome” that absorbs elements of the environment in which it resides, responding to triggers from the external world and making the necessary adjustments to achieve balance and purification. According to Skin Cancer Foundation, more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined, and one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. These statistics are alarming. My own wake-up call occured in 2015, when my dermatologist noticed something I didn’t. An…

It’s a pretty surreal experience. I never had serious medical problems to speak of before. Later, I’d been showing some cognitive and physical symptoms, like a lack of mobility and strength on my left-hand side, and some forgetfulness. My brother and sister-in-law took me to the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Maryland. I had an ER doc come in and give me a truth bomb: stage IV malignant glioblastoma. The seventh of December—and this is a bad joke—is my day of infamy. Everything got turned upside down once I got the diagnosis. Four days later, I was under the knife. They were able to get rid of most of my three tumors, but [they] were malignant. There’s still some [left], so that’s what we’re [working on] now. Physically, I’m doing well. I’m…

BASIL Antiviral, antioxidant, and antibacterial, basil has been linked to antimutagenic properties and tumor reduction. This herb is a staple of Mediterranean cooking and can be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill. Pair basil with tomatoes and mozzarella for a light caprese salad, or crush the fragrant leaves with garlic, parmesan cheese, olive oil, pine nuts, and salt for an easy, homemade pesto this summer. PARSLEY Vibrant and beautiful, parsley is great for liver and eye health. Fresh parsley’s slight brightness and peppery pop are an excellent addition to a summer brunch quiche. Even better, apigenin (a compound found in parsley) has been found to inhibit the spread of cancer cells. OREGANO Oregano essential oil is a miracle cure to help the body fight cold or flu. Part of the mint family and a powerful…

think dirty

You think you’re doing everything right—eating plenty of green vegetables, drinking at least eight cups of water a day, and getting the doctor-recommended 150 minutes of exercise every week—but could your hygiene routine be sabotaging your health? A staggering amount of personal care products contain carcinogens and other toxic ingredients that act as hormone disruptors, causing symptoms such as infertility, PMS, acne, insomnia, or even cancer. But before you “Marie Kondo” your entire medicine cabinet, try the Think Dirty app (available on iOS and Android). Think Dirty allows users to scan barcodes on personal care and household products (either at home or while out shopping), and gives each product a rating from zero to 10. A rating of zero means the product is harmless, and a 10 means it is incredibly…
