A Toronto Star/Ryerson School of Journalism investigation documents a hybrid health-care regime that markets to a clientele who can access public health care while paying for services that reach beyond what is covered by OHIP, including 24/7 access to health-care professionals, fast-tracking of MRIs and a range of annual tests and lifestyle assessments. “I think this does represent two tiers (of health care in Canada),” says Dr. Danielle Martin, a family physician in Toronto who was … [Read more...] about Should the wealthy be allowed to buy their way to faster health care at private clinics?

Then the Whole30 diet is for you. Created in 2009 by then husband-and-wife pair Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, the premise of the monthlong regime is that if you put only “good” things in your body you’ll feel better, reduce inflammation, and transform your relationship with food.
