DR MICHAEL MOSLEY: Are YOU a victim of hidden diabetes? (Believe it or not, I was too!) The small, scaly area on my chest didn’t overly worry me but as it was growing, albeit slowly, I thought I should have it checked out. My GP suggested it was a solar keratosis — sun damage —

Is there any candy worthier of shoveling into your mouth at a rapid pace than Reese’s Pieces? Seriously! Whether it’s pouring a handful into my bowl of popcorn, topping ice cream sundaes, or simply eating them out of the palm of my own hand, I will never get sick of these little bits of happiness.
A vaccine for COVID-19 is seen by many—rightly or wrongly—as the finish line for the pandemic, the shot that will mark the resumption of our normal lives.

When Lauren Langbein became a doctoral student in cell biology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia in 2014, she was used to being a stellar student—she had always excelled in classrooms and labs. But by the end of 2016, her research project was falling apart, and Langbein, a native of Monmouth County, N.J., and a
We were only recently given the low-down on how to order a Chocolate Pumpkin Crème Frappuccino from the Starbucks secret menu, and I’m honestly still recovering from it. But there’s a new seasonal-inspired Frapp that may, dare I say, be even better: a Pumpkin Cheesecake Frappuccino. TikToker @starbucksisbae, who contributes to Totally The Bomb’s running

Bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches are a summer staple — and we spend months dreaming of tomatoes that are worthy of the combo — but who says you can’t improve on a classic? Not Martha Stewart! The domestic diva took to Instagram recently to show off an absolutely indulgent, elevated, one-upped twist on BLTs, and
It’s no surprise that the Trump family doesn’t place much value on things like ethics, morality or even basic human decency, but Ivanka Trump’s latest gaffe was a new low, even for her. In case you missed it last week, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue boldly praised President Trump during a trip to the White
Wearing a mask has become part of our daily lives. It is already compulsory to wear one on public transport across the UK and from 24 July, you will have to wear one in shops in England.

As Victoria grapples with a second-wave outbreak of COVID-19, the importance of large-scale testing has again been highlighted. Without its “testing blitz” aiming at 10,000 tests a day, the extent of the outbreak would have been invisible for much longer. Australia-wide, we’ve so far achieved a seven-day rolling average of a little more than 50,000
Is it weird that a bowl full of freshly popped, lightly buttered popcorn excites us? No, really, hear us out: It’s like this blank canvas that you can flavor in so many different ways. Want it sweet? Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar or caramel seasoning on it. Want it tangy and spicy? A few heavy dashes
