It’s increasingly recognized that sticking to traditional concepts of masculinity and male gender roles stigmatizes men expressing emotions and places limits on what they feel comfortable expressing. And this, in turn, causes many problems, both at work and at home. As British comic and writer Robert Webb put it, “The Rules for Being a Man go something like this: Don’t cry. Love sport. Play rough. Don’t talk about feelings.” But, he asked in his 2017...

More than two-thirds of men living in the UAE are at risk for advanced prostate and testicular cancer because they don’t know the symptoms and they don’t go to the doctor. This comes from a survey of 1,000 residents commissioned by Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, which is  part of the hospital’s annual Movember-related men’s health campaign ‘MENtion It.’ “Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide, while testicular cancer is the most common...

Screening and acting quickly is key when it comes to finding out you have breast cancer, according to a 30-year-old woman who noticed a lump earlier this year when she was breastfeeding her third child. By the time she arrived at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, the woman had already undergone a screening mammogram and biopsy. Further investigation with genetic counseling found a mutation in BRCA1, a breast cancer-susceptible gene. Women who have BRCA1 or BRCA2...

A major factor in the number of deaths from Covid-19 is diabesity: the modern-day combination of diabetes and obesity.

Obese patients are three times more prone to severe infections than those of a normal weight. Worldwide, obesity has nearly tripled since 1975 and along with it has come a...

I heard about it at the beginning of the week, from a friend who’d been to Emirates Palace by the Corniche. A few days later, it happened to me as I entered Ace Hardware on Yas Island. By the time I got to my Friday morning F45 class at Zayed Sports City, I was an old hand: offering up my wrist, not my forehead, for a temperature check.  No matter where you sit on the...

Breaking through these energy blockages...

There are a lot of “healthy” snacks out there on the market now, but not all of them are actually that good for you, nor are they all satisfying or worth the sticker price. There is nothing worse than trying to bridge that late-afternoon gap between lunch and dinner by trying something new, but ending up with a snack that makes you feel as though it would have been better to eat nothing at all....

Sheri Mehryar came up with the concept for The Bowl One after a lifetime of struggling to find the right balance between restriction and freedom when it comes to food.  The 24-year-old Iranian grew up in Dubai, leaving for five years to study in London and Milan, where she did a second master’s degree in Food Design and Innovation. “Growing up in this day and age, as a girl, we are bombarded with society’s pre-defined...
