This week: soda and osteoporosis, aspartame and arthritis, high cost of healthcare, plus turkey tips

I know this is a week when most of us put our nutritional concerns on the shelf, but if you’re in the market for some tips on how to enjoy the feast without doing yourself too much damage, check out my pre-Turkey Day interview with Tom Hall on WYPR-FM.org.

And when you’re ready to turn your attention back to matters nutritional, this week’s podcast reviews the latest research on soda and bone health.  Soda drinkers seem to have thinner bones, but is it something in the soda itself or other lifestyle habits?

While we’re on the topic of soda, find out whether diet soda could be the next arthritis treatment.  And while we’re on the topic of dieting,  I’ve got some advice on how to lose weight without triggering painful gallstones in the Nutrition Diva newsletter.

I also published an open letter to my health insurance company this week, which triggered a good discussion on the Nutrition Diva Facebook Page. It’s a complicated topic…I’d love to get your views.

Enjoy the holiday weekend!
