Yes, no, good, bad…what to eat, drink?

Coffee, alcohol, dark chocolate…you name the substance and there is a study which indicates that substance’s health-enhancing properties or its contribution to your demise.

In Dr. Alisa Hideg's column today, Dr. Hideg advises readers how to dig into these various studies and their claims.  She tells us to read the fine print, not the drive-by headlines and take time to ask who are the subjects of a study? The effects of caffeine on a Petri dish subject are most likely different than how caffeine impacts a middle-age woman.

Take time to read her good advice – and then dig into the latest study on your favorite food or drink.
