Chemicals in Cosmetics: The Forgotten Toxins

What price do we pay for beauty? We certainly spend a lot of money on cosmetics, that's for sure. The U.S. cosmetics industry brought in nearly $60 billion in revenue last year.

The Link Between Heart Health and Other Diseases

"The heart of the matter." "A change of heart." "It’s what my heart tells me." While the heart is only one of many organs in the body, just hearing common clichés and colloquialisms proves that many think the heart is the most important of them all.

What Triggers a Recall? The FDA's Role
