Urban Reads: August 2018

In this edition of Urban Reads, we take a look at some of our favorite health and wellness articles from this month. These three articles take a look at nutrition, supplementation, and pain science.

First, we take a look at the current research on soy. You’ve probably heard a lot of talk about the benefits of or harm done by soy. Cut through the chatter with Examine’s article outlining what we currently know about soy and soy products. This is a fairly comprehensive article, so if you’re just interested in health information and not the process by which soy products are made, scroll down to the “Soy and your health” section

If you’re like many Americans, you’re probably taking a fish oil supplement. You’ve probably heard of its benefits for heart health and cholesterol. Now, research seems to be contradicting our previously held notions of this supplement. This article takes a look at the effects of the fish oil industry.

Pain is something we all have experienced and will experience. All humans understand pain, but describing it can be difficult and science still is at a loss for an objective way to measure it. This article describes the current research being done to explore the mystery of pain.
