SPRINGTIME IS the right time for making small adjustments. So I was inspired to tweak Prevention with a few new monthly columns and some subtle design changes that refresh and refine our mission. Good Food (p. 28) delivers bite-size pieces of nutrition knowledge. Does It Work? (p. 22) examines the efficacy of products touted to perform miracles (emu oil for aches and pains, anyone?). We renamed Dr. Andrew Weil’s longtime column The Holistic MD (p. 24), and we’re calling Dr. Tieraona Low Dog’s column Natural Remedies (p. 26). Finally, our popular column Problem Solved (p. 18) got a makeover—all for an easier and more helpful read. In other news, I’m proud to announce that Laura Clary (above left) is the winner of our America’s Most Amazing Nurse contest, presented by Prevention…

letters to the editor

A TRUSTED SOURCE I’ve rediscovered Prevention through a friend and nd it more appealing now. I’ll keep coming back to it because I trust the information you publish. Jan Stuart / Lady Lake, FL LET IT GO I recently lost my mom to cancer and had to empty her “nest” of all the keepsakes, mementos, and, yes, garbage, too. It broke my heart to have to purge 95% of her treasures, as she called them. But I realized it’s not the things that hold memories; they are held in a spot deep in the heart. When I looked at her home empty and freshly painted for a new occupant, I smiled in hopes that someone else will make memories in my childhood home. Kelley Bouchard / Charlton, NY To keep clutter to a minimum,…

human nature

Those who enjoy spending time outdoors are more likely to like themselves. A British research team asked nearly 400 men and women to rate their self-esteem, their emotional connection to nature, and the social pressure they felt to look good—and found that the nature lovers were most likely to reject unrealistic beauty standards. Being outside may even help make workouts feel easier. At Ohio State University, researchers found that walkers who were allowed to set their own pace tended to stride more quickly and feel happier doing it when they were outdoors rather than indoors, suggesting that nature may provide just enough distraction to keep fitness bu­s energized. Look Up! Bird-watching combines exercise, pleasure, and the great outdoors. For more information on this growing pastime, see p. 64.…

Stick With Your Doctor SEEING the same physician regularly may keep you out of the hospital. A study of the medical records of more than 230,000 patients ages 62 to 82 found that those who saw their regular doctor most often were 12% less likely to be admitted to the hospital for conditions such as asthma, diabetes, and hypertension. “Patients might be more willing to go back to that doctor instead of going to the ER if problems arise,” says Peter Tammes, a senior research associate at the UK’s University of Bristol.

demystifying melanoma

Why is melanoma the deadliest of all skin cancers? To help nd out, scientists in Israel have deciphered the way this skin cancer spreads. In melanoma, pigment-producing cells called melanocytes send out “balloons” of color to nearby skin cells to give them their hue, explains Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. “The new research shows that these pigment balloons also contain signals from cancerous melanocytes that allow the cancer to spread.” The research opens the way for promising new treatments. But until they’re available, see a dermatologist for annual skin checks and take a thorough look at your own skin once a month, advises Zeichner. $343 million Annual cost in the US of treating skin cancer caused by tanning-bed use Sun on Skin…
