Taking Care of Yourself

A WORKSHOP FOR FAMILY CAREGIVERS

more and more fast foods and soft
drinks. And kids get snack-fed so
they're not hungry for real meals.

JN: One day you read coffee is
good for you, the next day, it's bad.
How do you choose what to write?
Brody: We [the New York Times]
have to cover the news because we're a
newspaper. But I write a column that
allows me to stand back from the
immediacy of the news and put it into
perspective.
Like coffee. Let's say a study links
coffee to pancreatic cancer. Even if the
study is published in a peer review
journal, I didn't write that story
because I did a lot of work on the
biology of coffee and caffeine and I
found no evidence that coffee is linked
to cancer. [Brody suggests that coffee
drinkers tended to be smokers, and
pancreatic cancer is related to smoking
— but not necessarily to coffee.]
I have a mantra about how to judge
a story: One study does not a fact
make.

JN: What will your talk focus on in
Detroit?
Brody: I'll emphasize that doctors
don't keep you healthy, only you can
keep you healthy ... And if you're not
physically active, you can't be a fully
healthy person.

JN: How do you keep healthy?
Brody: I'm not a fanatic. My diet is
mostly low fat with high vegetables
and lean protein. [Brody also said she
eats treats on occasion and eats out
infrequently.]

Realizing life's potential

JN: What's important for the com-
munity to do about health?
Brody: It's important that people
work on a societal level to promote
physical activity. Make sure malls are
open [for walkers] ... and that there
are local-wide health facilities that
have programs that encourage all
ages and all degrees in fitness to
work out.
