Hey, Obesity! We’re Seeing A Lot More Of You… (Part 1)
As a dietitian, I have a hard time dealing with all the nutrition clutter out there being delivered to people.

Why Does My Baby Gag While Eating?

You know the feeling when you’ve eaten something and it doesn’t feel right as it travels downward? The body will trigger your gag reflex intuitively.
