I first tasted coffee when I was 16. After seeing the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, my date took me to a local IHOP and confidently ordered us both short stacks plus a carafe of coffee.

by Jean Rommes I have emphysema, as well as chronic bronchitis and an asthma component. I smoked for 30 years and quit in 1992, mostly because I realized that I was organizing my entire day at work around when I could smoke. I decided that was pretty stupid, so I got the patches and quit. I had never tried to quit before; I had cut back occasionally, but I never really tried to quit until I actually did it.

Ever since my 28-year-old son ran his first marathon earlier this month, he's more concerned than ever about optimizing his health.

I recently was enjoying dinner with a friend whom I hadn't seen in many months. After catching up on our latest news—our jobs, our children, our husbands—we got around to that popular topic: health. It seems that ever since my group of friends has ventured into our 40s and 50s, the topic of our health inevitably pops up. Some of the most common topics? Sports injuries, menopausal symptoms, sleep or lack thereof, the need for reading glasses … you get my drift.
