"Egg Yolks, Smoking Clog Arteries Similarly, Says Study"

"Who did that study?" Paula Poundstone, the comedian, was asking on the radio a few days later.

She's a panelist on NPR's satiric news-quiz show "Wait, Wait. . . Don't Tell Me!" and she was not amused by the "shocking new study," as the cheeky host Peter Sagal put it, that suggested egg yolks are almost as bad for you as smoking.

"This concerns me," Poundstone said. Like millions of people, she likes her eggs.

"Who says?" she demanded.

juicing-300x169The decision of whether to go on hormone replacement therapy—whether estrogen, testosterone or any of the other choices available to both men and women—is perhaps the most personal and difficult medical choice many people will ever make. That’s largely because of how the HRT options have been shadowed by questions that are more cultural than medical.

Two years after a trio of telomere researchers won a Nobel Prize, word is spreading that this once-obscure structure—the protective cap at the ends of our chromosomes—is not only a breakthrough biomarker of aging but a pivotal piece of the aging puzzle itself.
