It is all too easy to call those who express concerns about GM food "anti-GM." This is wrong. The real issue is whether we believe in transparency and democracy. Bill C-291 is not part of an anti-GM campaign. It would not inhibit the production of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Canada.
The day will inevitably come when your sweet pre-teen gets to be dating age. And oh, what a day that is, let me tell you. As a parent of three young women, I always thought I would know exactly what type of person they would bring home. Let's just say if I had been a gambling sort, I would have lost it all, time, and time again.

What I am saying is, when you make a choice that your future self will not be proud of, lean into the fall and learn from every choice -- both positive and negative.

In February 2016, I compiled my first "favourite things" blog -- a list of current favourite exercises, nutrition tips, recipes, and health mantras. This edition includes a workout format, helpful tips for eating out, a mindfulness trick for improved posture, and a life mantra that has profoundly improved my daily existence.

Parents do their kids no favours when they're in denial of their child's capacity for behaving badly. Parents need to stop idealizing their children. They need to see that even their precious darlings are capable of behaving badly, and that it's their job to guide these children onto the right path in life. If parents remain this state of denial, their children are deprived of of this guidance.
To lose weight, help lower blood pressure, improve energy or decrease anxiety, you need to change your preferences - your daily habits - so that more often than not you are making healthy choices.

I have treated patients with breast cancer for more than 30 years as a medical oncologist. And I have found that most of the women in my practice are desperately looking for things they can do beyond standard treatment to increase their chance of cure. Unfortunately, many fall prey to false claims they read over the Internet or hear from well-meaning friends and relatives. They adhere to extremely strict diets -- no meat, no dairy, no sugar -- or turn to various "supplements" with unproven effectiveness and often even unproven safety.
You're a renter and you appreciate the lifestyle. Ask any homeowner who has received an unexpected roof repair bill, or had to call a plumber -- or had to move to accept a job offer -- and you'll appreciate it even more -- especially all of you "all inclusive" renters. Have you heard the news about hydro prices these days? Or do you enjoy your luxury of not having to pay attention to that issue.
