NY Times Science
Earth is old. The sun is old. But do you know what may be even older than both? Water.

While celebrities like Katy Perry, Diplo and Adam Levine are pushing premium Core water, experts say few of the touted benefits are real.
Salt Science
Washington Post declares that unknown to many shoppers urged to buy foods that are “low sodium” and “low salt,” this longstanding warning has come under assault by scientists who say that typical American salt consumption is without risk.

MetSyn Science
Research has indicated that low intake of magnesium, low blood magnesium concentrations and/or low intracellular magnesium levels may lead to and are associated with elevated blood pressure, MetSyn, insulin resistance, and/or type 2 diabetes.
