new insights into addiction

Every 25 minutes in the United States, a baby is born addicted to opioids. That heartbreaking statistic is but one symptom of an epidemic that shows no sign of abating. The 33,000 overdose deaths from opioids in 2015 were a 16 percent rise over the previous year, which also set a record. Drug overdoses are now a leading cause of death among Americans under 50—but only part of a broader addiction landscape that ranges from drug and alcohol abuse to obsessive eating, gambling, and even sex. For this month’s cover story, “The Addicted Brain,” we went in search of the “why.” Why do human beings get addicted to substances and behaviors we know will harm us? What can new research tell us about addiction and the brain? Most important: Can what we’re…

what it means to be healthy

‘ WE NEED TO CHANGE HOW WE THINK ABOUT EMOTIONS. ’ VIVEK MURTHY, FORMER U. S. SURGEON GENERAL You say emotional well-being is just as important as eating a healthy diet and staying active. Why? When I began my tenure as surgeon general, I did not intend to focus on emotional well-being. But it became a priority after I traveled the country listening to people in small towns and big cities. What I sensed was that people were experiencing a high degree of emotional pain. I think of emotional well-being as a resource within each of us that allows us to do more and to perform better. That doesn’t mean just the absence of mental illness. It’s the presence of positive emotions that allows us to be resilient in the face of…

Mexico Dead monarch butterflies carpet a snowy forest floor in Michoacán state. At least nine million, over 40 percent of this colony, died after an unusually intense spring storm—possibly due to climate change—hit their mountain sanctuary.

Lance McMillan Toronto, Ontario McMillan went to Cuba to gauge the country’s economic change. In Havana he visited the Rafael Trejo boxing gym. When he saw this man run up bleachers, he set up his camera. “I waited for the moment when he would appear between the seats,” McMillan says.…

eat, drink, and be wary

If only it were as simple as “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Nutrition scientists are in fact constantly scrutinizing the health properties of foods. Everything on this page, along with olive oil and tea, has been the subject of more than 20 studies in the past 25 years, says physician Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic. Why? “They either have unexpected benefits,” he says, “or are commonly consumed but may have risks.” Some foods—like pomegranates and pistachios in the U.S.—rise to nutrition fame because a large company that dominates the production and sales pays for much of the research. But sponsored studies can shade the science, says Roizen. The National Dairy Council, for instance, “has a huge marketing arm,” allowing it to widely promote the…

pictures of mental health

In a small town in Switzerland in 1917, psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach began carefully splattering paint on cards to study how the mind works. Asking people what they saw, he observed a correlation in responses from patients with schizophrenia and theorized that mental health could be assessed by how someone processes visual information. Rorschach’s original 10 images were published in 1921, the year before his death. After being brought to Chicago, they spread quickly across the United States as a popular personality test. In the second half of the century, trends like Freudian analysis fell out of favor, and the test became a synonym for pseudoscience. Critics called for a moratorium on its use. But a major 2013 study published by the American Psychological Association found it more effective than previously believed…
