Froome is playing mind games with me: Porte

The upshot of this was that Froome and Sky have begun labelling Porte with "the favourite to win the Tour label", but the Australian, showing he is wise to such mind-games, calmly batted that idea back earlier this week. I think the route really suits a rider like Bardet, and he showed previous year that he has to be taken seriously. I can't just rely on what I did the year before. Read More

Pediatricians: No fruit juice before age 1

The new recommendations state that 100% fresh or reconstituted fruit juice can be a healthy part of the diet of children older than one year when consumed as part of a well- balanced diet.

For instance, where four ounces of apple juice has 60 calories, 13g of sugar and no fiber, a half cup of apple slices has half the calories [30], only 5.5g of sugar and 1.5g of fiber. Read More
