Top 10 Health & Healthcare Stories of 2015

Attaining optimal health and wellness is something we should all aspire to. Some might say it’s one of the most altruistic goals one can set, benefitting friends, family and society as a whole, never mind clearly being good for the self.

As such, it is no surprise that Sara Adaes’ Nurturing the Brain series was a phenomenal hit in 2015, updating us on the scientifically-validated brain benefits of some of the most scrumptious foods in our diets… like chocolate!

Meanwhile, advances in healthcare are raising the optimal health bar for both those with and free of medical complaints, where the latest in treating hearing loss and spinal cord injury were hot topics last year.
