I Lost 35 Pounds By Joining the Gym and Going Keto

I had just turned 56 in February 2018 and started saying “almost 60” when people asked me my age. My mirror in the bathroom was not kind to me but I’d gotten used to the acceptable reflection of the man I’d been for more than 30 years. My traveling salesman-style job kept me in planes

The researchers found that even in a group of highly educated, healthy pregnant women, stress and anxiety were common.

Academic achievement plays an important role in children’s development because academic skills, especially in reading and math, affect many outcomes, including educational attainment, performance and income at work, health, and longevity.

Improved safety for mother and child

Preeclampsia is a particularly dreaded pregnancy complication that threatens the lives of mother and child. A correct diagnosis, however, is currently time-consuming and, in many cases, inaccurate. The Empa spin-off “MOMM Diagnostics” is developing a fast and precise test that provides diagnostic certainty and at the same time saves healthcare costs. Nausea, swollen hands or
