Nature vs. Nurture: A Matter of Personal Taste

[fa icon="calendar'] Aug 30, 2018 11:08:21 AM / by Rom Zarchi posted in Genetic Testing 2 min read time

The clock strikes twelve. Dead of midnight. With no one around to judge, you make your way to the fridge to officiate the sweet-end to a stressful and sweaty day. And there it is; your favorite food, the one you’d rather not think of as a dessert even though it’s ridiculously packed with sugar. You smuggle it like contraband back to the couch but on the way there, you catch a glimpse of your reflection in the hallway mirror. It’s not an inspiring look, and you can’t help but wonder, why am I like this? Should I be eating this? Am I hardwired to eat junk around midnight or has it just been a long day?

Flex spending accounts (FSAs) can offer a lot of freedom in how we pay for health care, but many people don't realize that not all of the money in the account can be carried over to the following year. Many employers only allow $500 to be carried over annually, which means that if you don't spend your money, you could lose out on it.

These two personality types – commonly dubbed “worriers and warriors” – made it into the spotlight over the last couple of years, as we begin to look at how these pressures affect us in an increasingly fast paced world.
