COOKING LIGHT - Janine Whiteson showed us the new nutritional guide, Cooking Light What to Eat. With low-sugar, low-carb, all-natural, organic and all the other health claims on food packages and nutritional labels, cutting through the clutter and getting the most nutritional bang for your grocery store dollar can seem impossible. Enter the new real-world guide to making smart nutritional choices, Cooking Light What to Eat (on sale May 11). Designed as your personal food shopping guide, What to Eat walks you through every aisle of the supermarket-from bread to dairy, from seafood to meat, from snack to ready-to-go cook products outlining serving sizes, presenting a world of healthful choices (rather than the lesser of two evils), offering tips for spreading your dollar and answering questions like:
* What's the deal with saturated fats?
* Which is the tastiest peanut butter?
* Does peeling an apple negate the health benefits?
* What should I look for in a granola bar? Fiber? Sugar?
* When should I buy organic?
ASK THE DOCTOR - Dr. Sam Eisa is a physician - board certified in internal medicine, and specializes in wound care, hyperbaric medicine, & diabetes. Wounds do not heal for a variety of reasons: -skin is fragile and slower to heal (older population), diabetes, peripheral vascular disease (poor circulation to legs and feet), immobility, & compromised immune system. Non-healing wounds are painful, can limit physical capabilities, can result in serious infection, & can ultimately result in amputation. Treatment can involve debridement-removing dead tissue so that only healthy tissue remains, dressings, antibiotics, a device called a wound vac which provides negative pressure to the wound site, and in some cases hyperbaric medicine where a patient enters a chamber and breathes 100 percent oxygen for a prescribed length of time and number of visits. Princeton Baptist Medical Center has a comprehensive wound care clinic with hyperbaric medicine. A team of doctors and professionals work with each patient to help heal their wound and improve their quality of life.
