Teen has blunt message for Aetna after less invasive brain surgery denied

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 14:14:28 GMT

Cara Pressman, 15, wept as her parents told her their insurance company denied her for a minimally invasive brain surgery that could end the seizures that have haunted her since she was 9. In the six weeks since the rejection, Cara has had dozens more seizures. Pressed by CNN, Aetna still refuses to approve the surgery -- over the objections of her own doctors.(image)

Canna-butter, astro eggs and other costly superfood trends

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 13:37:16 GMT

You're down with acai, take echinacea on the reg, and consider coconut oil a mainstay in your home. But a new class of high-powered superfoods is pushing the envelope even further, making even the healthiest among us stop and do a double take. For starters, there's Gwyneth's pricy morning smoothie ritual (whose ingredient shopping list totals $200 thanks to so-called "moon dust"). And then there's something called Blue Majik and ... astrologically farmed eggs?(image)
