At Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness, we understand there's only one thing harder than making healthy behavior changes: Sticking to them! We all need a little help from our friends, and that's the purpose of the Wellbody Blog, a friendly online gathering spot--a community well--where you can dip into health news; wellness tips; recipes; latest research about nutrition, exercise, sleep and hygiene; plus, real stories from virtual neighbors who are also trying to change their lives for the better. Start from wherever you are; share ideas, information, inspiration. At Pacific Science Center, we believe each of us can do something everyday to improve our health and well-being.

High in fiber, antioxidants and vitamin C, raspberries help maintain regular bowel movements; protect against heart disease by inhibiting the body’s ability to absorb cholesterol; and help grow tissues and build collagen, important for skin, cartilage, blood vessels and wound repair. One of the key antioxidants in raspberries is called ellagic acid, a known cancer fighter. All raspberries have antioxidants, but black raspberries have the most; eating just four average-sized black raspberries provides more antioxidants than a full serving of most other fruits and veggies.
