The Surgeon General Just Made a 'Scary' Admission About the COVID Surge With only 4 million of a promised 20 million COVID-19 vaccines administered, Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, promises the effort will "ramp up" and urges you to "have hope," he said on CNN this morning. "We're using everything to get these vaccines into arms," he said. But we're in danger until then—severe danger. More than 350,000 Americans have died of coronavirus, with many more projected to die soon; when asked about President Trump denying these numbers,  as he did in a tweet this morning, Adams said he has no reason to believe they weren't true. "What I want people to know is, the projections are pretty, pretty scary, but they're projections—and what we do now matters," he said. Read on to see what he feels you need to do "to temper this surge"—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
