  • Consistency is more important than timing of workout, expert says
    Little research has been done to compare exercise late in the day with early workouts, but the important element is sticking to a routine, says Kris Berg of the University of Nebraska at Omaha clinical exercise physiology lab. Nutrition is key following a workout, and Berg says there is a two-hour window after exercise during which more carbohydrates can be stored in muscles to help with energy needs later in the day.

  • Gluten sensitivity raises many questions for medical experts
    Medical experts agree that non-celiac gluten sensitivity is a condition, but they don't know a lot about it, such as long-term effects or even whether it's just one illness. Dr. Stefano Guandalini of the University of Chicago's Celiac Disease Center said some people who do not have celiac disease do get a health boost from adhering to a gluten-free diet, but he does not know how many people may be gluten sensitive and there is no blood test that can aid in the diagnosis.

  • Iowa district seeks to protect students with food allergies
    Cedar Falls, Iowa, school district officials are considering whether to adopt a districtwide policy regarding students with food allergies, rather than allowing schools to set their own guidelines. As officials work to craft the policy, some are asking that schools not go peanut-free, because it can create a false sense of security for students with sensitivities to peanuts.
