    Image via Wikipedia Many notable writers have remarked that America is a nation obsessed with image and artifice. From the iconic faces we see on the Silver Screen to the real life heroes of our everyday world, Americans love and respect perfection in all of its forms.

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Uncategorized

    Hepatitis C (HCV) is often referred to as the “silent epidemic” because so many Americans have it and doctors know so little about it. According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 4.5 million US citizens have been diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Like the less common A and B versions of the disease, it is a blood borne infection that affects the liver.

  • Grapefruit Diet – Magic Or Myth

    By: Pittman & Davis | On: | Category: Fruit Information

    The “Grapefruit Diet” (also known as the Hollywood Diet and Mayo Diet) has been around since at least the 1930s. The ideal is that something inside a grapefruit – some magical enzyme – can burn fat. The problem of course is that there is no scientific proof that this magical ingredient exists. Yes, people do lose weight when following the grapefruit diet, but they regain it almost immediately after they go off it. That’s because the grapefruit diet (so-called because it includes drinking grapefruit juice at every meal) is what’s known as a Very Low-Calorie diet – that is, a…
