Eat one apple and see me in the morning: Some doctors in NYC have done away with trying to prescribe drugs to solve every health problem, and have instead switched to writing prescriptions for fruits and veggies. It's been creatively named the Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program, and it targets at-risk, low-income families who may have limited to access to fresh produce. Participants are prescribed "health bucks" that can be redeemed at more than a hundred farmer's markets. The aim is not to replace conventional medicine, but to supplement it through better diet.

To lose weight, researchers now say you've got to try to beat the clock -- your internal clock, that is.

"When the timing of meals does not match with the sleep-wake cycle well, there's a disconnect between the different clocks that we have in basically all the cells of our body," said Frank Scheer, director of the Medical Chronobiology Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. So, keep that stuff aligned, okay? [Source]
