babies & bananas

WHEN MY SISTER-IN-LAW was pregnant a couple of years ago, my son was confident she was going to have a girl. “Aunt Susanne doesn’t like bananas,” he explained matter-of-factly. Susanne herself had told us about an intriguing study from the U.K.: Certain dietary habits might be associated with giving birth to a boy, and consuming potassium seemed to be one. Fun fact: I ate a banana at breakfast every single day for 10 years before my son was born! But I guess I didn’t do my health-editor job super well in explaining the study, as my son made the leap to thinking that someone must eat bananas to have a boy. In all fairness, he was barely 6, but he did agree that it had to be more complex when Susanne’s…

go ahead, eat the garnish!

If you’ve been pushing aside the delicate little leaves decorating your takeout steak or salmon, don’t. Those are microgreens, super-young and tender leafy greens that most vegetables, grains, and herbs produce—and they’re shown to have higher concentrations of phytochemicals and other antioxidants like beta-carotene than leaves harvested from mature plants. They’re also safer than sprouts (which often carry the risk of foodborne illness) because they’re grown in less moist environments and the roots are removed during harvest. And they can be grown easily indoors, so they’re sustainable to boot. With a crunchy and earthy taste, they’re great on a salad or piled atop an omelet, meat, or a side dish of veggies or grains. Look for microgreens at your local specialty-foods store, and you may even see them in the…

mind-body help for concussions

People recovering from concussions may get help by tapping into their inner zen, says a new meta-analysis of 20 studies involving both men and women in the journal Applied Psychology: Health and Well-Being. Researchers found that engaging in yoga, mindfulness, and meditation appeared to help reduce some chronic concussion symptoms that can linger, especially fatigue and depression. More studies are needed to pinpoint exactly how these therapies help, but previous research has shown that they can reduce systemic inflammation, increase self-compassion, and tame rumination—all connected to post-concussion healing.…

3 things to know about the covid-19 vaccine

Let’s hear it for the scientists! They worked tirelessly to develop (in record time) vaccines that studies show are up to 95% effective at protecting against COVID-19. But some people still have doubts: An online survey of nearly 1,500 women conducted last December by the Good Housekeeping Institute found that just 38% said they’d get a shot as soon as one was offered. Another 27% said they’d rather wait and see how people who were vaccinated fared, and 14% said they didn’t plan to get pricked at all. Here, three vaccine must-knows: 1The vaccines have been tested. Experts consider the vaccines very safe, in part because much of the science has been years in the making. Plus, nearly 75,000 Americans were involved in clinical trials to test them, and “there were…
