Savor the season and pre-reserve a little down time in the form of a weekend getaway. We’ve rounded up eight of our favorite destinations. Bring the kids _ or not _ and plan a little “me” time.
We’ve traded in our swimsuits and sandals for sweaters and boots, so it’s only natural to switch out the wines we’re drinking too. Somehow those light, quaffable bottles don’t taste quite the same in October as they did in July, do they?

editor’s letter Fall can certainly feel bittersweet. It’s tough to let summer go, but this season has countless perks of its own. They may not include Whispering Angel and turkey burgers, but the rush of it all _ kids, school, holidays, greens turning brown and sandals taking a back seat to booties _ makes room for a new kind of excitement. For me personally, the biggest is sending my first born off to college. The thrill of seeing her blossom, take next steps and truly cut the cord, far outweighs the nervous energy and sadness our family will feel without her. She is strong and respectful and we couldn’t be more proud. Raising our next generation to respect each other and their bodies is, in my opinion, one of our most important jobs.
And while you may feel on top of your parenting game, if you’re not in the know on vaping and e-cigarettes, get educated on the reality (86) of this epidemic in schools today. Our kids are our most precious assets and they learn from example. It starts with keeping ourselves healthy and happy, which includes a little “me” time. You’ll find eight perfect ways to reconnect with our weekend getaway travel report (62). “Me” time for some may simply be how to transition from rosé to perfect wines of the season. Your cheat sheet is in “Divine Wines” (90). What comes with sweaters, sweatpants and wine, however, is a danger in weight gain. Look to these leaders making their social media mark (78) for fitness inspiration. Our women’s health Q&A (86) also tackles the difficulties of weight gain in pregnancy while addressing multiple hot topics of today, including those of college age teens. From grade school through college, back to school pressures are real; our cool stuff report (46) can help. As schools strive to incorporate the latest tech into the classroom, students follow suit. From laptops to apps, learn what’s worth the investment. And while tech helps carry us through the necessary, the unnecessary in fashion is the icing on the cake. Fashion plays a tremendous role in independence. Fact: feeling good on the outside has a direct result to feeling good on the inside. So whether that’s investing in the latest fashion trends or learning how to handle your blemishes (33), we want you feeling good _ always. Our fashion models certainly felt fabulous in the best of fall fashion (50) in studio and on location at Tellers Chophouse. Our best accomplishment is not only beautiful fashion-forward photography, but the development of friendships. Five women, who don’t know each other, spend a special out-of-the-box day together. It’s quite the Long Island experiment. Not only do friendships develop for the models, with 16 years of fashion shoots, many of these women have become true friends of my own. What touches my heart the most is having the support of these women and so many more through our charity events. Giving back is at the core of Woodbury magazine’s mission statement. This year, we are proud to put our breast cancer fundraising efforts into PINK PROMISES, an outrageous CASINO NIGHT benefiting the BCRF on Friday night September 28th (104). As my mom is among the 1 in 8 women fighting the fight, any support is outstanding. Make a difference while having a blast! Casino cash is included with all tickets. Fun! This issue offers so much more, from a look inside Hollywood producer Brian Grazer’s home (70) and national nutrition survey results (82) to book reviews (76) and the best eye candy you could wish for in fall’s best accessories (36). We hope to deliver what you want to know and always, happy fall. Enjoy!

Wendy Fried, MD, is a leader in the field of obstetrics and gynecology, and shares her expertise through vast experience with Woodbury readers. In this issue’s women’s health report on page 86, Dr. Fried addresses the questions and answers most commonly asked by women today. From weight gain in pregnancy and bariatric surgery to teenage menstrual cycles and HPV, be empowered by the facts and review them with your doctor. Dr. Fried has been in private practice with Northern Obstetrics and Gynecology, P.C., since 1995 and is an attending physician at North Shore Hospital. She is also a clinical instructor in obstetrics and gynecology at NYU School of Medicine and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (FACOG) and American College of Surgeons (ACS). Eric Presser, MD,
has been an attending thoracic surgeon for over twelve years at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, California. He is the vice chair of the department of surgery and associate professor at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine. In, “Reality Check: E-Cigarettes and Vaping in School” on page 84, Dr. Presser shares the fact and fiction surrounding this epidemic. “Most of us aren’t clued in to teen-speak,” he says. “So when parents hear new teen buzz words like JUUL, I can understand why it may not register.” In 2016, Dr. Presser released his book, An Empowering Guide to Lung Cancer: Six Steps to Taking Charge of Your Care and Your Life. Dr. Presser was born and raised in Syosset and relocated, as promised, to his wife’s roots in California. The International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation is ded-

SKINCARE SECRETS FOR YOUR WORKOUT BY SH A R ON F E I E R E I SE N
REDUCE THE RISK OF SWEAT-INDUCED BLEMISHES AND OPTIMIZE YOUR WORKOUT SKINCARE ROUTINE
It’s easy to come up with an excuse not to work out – don’t let fear of breaking out be one of them! With the right approach you can wiggle your risk of sweat-induced blemishes down to zero. But first, let’s face some truths. WEARING MAKEUP WHILE WORKING OUT IS AS BAD AS YOU THINK.
A long list of brands are now marketing themselves as gym-friendly with sweat-resistant, all-natural, hypoallergenic formulations – think Sweat Cosmetics, Rae Cosmetics and Tarteʼs Athleisure Beauty – donʼt be fooled! Wearing makeup while working out is a major skincare no-no. “Whenever youʼre working out, whatever cosmetics you have on can combine with sweat and contribute to a breeding ground for bacteria, resulting in blackheads and breakouts,” says celebrity dermatologist and founder of Dr. Dennis Gross Dermatology, Dr. Dennis Gross. “Brands like Sweat Cosmetics might be better than some makeup brands that incorporate comedogenic ingredients, but itʼs important to note that even with non-comedogenic ingredients, makeup can clog pores – especially when worn during a workout. Pores open up while sweating and you donʼt want to block the skinʼs breathing by clogging it with makeup.” Gross, whose clients include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoe Kravitz, Olivia Palermo and Jourdan Dunn, underlines that if you must wear makeup thereʼs one ingredient to avoid at all costs: isopropyl palmitate. “It is a fatty acid that is common in many tinted moisturizers and primarily used as a thickening agent.” SKINCARE PRODUCTS MARKETED TOWARDS FITNESS ARE OFTEN JUST THAT, MARKETING GIMMICKS.
While brands like FRÉ, whose products are designed to combat workout-induced skin damage
and the signs of aging work well, donʼt fall for marketing. “These are all good ingredients for the skin, but none of them are going to speciﬁcally block the ill-effects of working out while wearing make-up,” says celebrity dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman whose clients include Soﬁa Vergara and Christina Ricci. When picking skincare products to use pre and post working out itʼs more about avoiding and opting for speciﬁc ingredients. “For example, substituting heavy cream moisturizers for oil-free ones will help lessen clogged pores,” says Dr. Gross. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU TOUCH!
Acne is caused by bacteria that infects your pores, leading to breakouts. “Gym equipment, including benches, workout mats and other surfaces can host all kinds of bacteria and dirt,” notes Dr. Gross. “Touching this dirty equipment and then touching your skin is essentially a direct transference of that bacteria into your pores and the result is breakouts.” When possible, wipe down all surfaces you touch or wash your hands before touching your face or bacteria will be directly transferred into your pores which, Dr. Gross notes, have been opened up due to your raised body temperature. Speaking of touching your face, breakouts can also be caused by improperly drying off sweat. Always gently pat sweat away; donʼt wipe! Wiping can not only irritate skin, especially
WORKOUT WONDERS CLEANSERS: 1. DR. GROSS ALPHA BETA PORE PERFECTING CLEANSING GEL ($38) If you have sensitive skin, this cleanser is a particularly great pick because it’s effective – formulated with six acids – but gentle enough to use twice a day and on red, flushed skin. 2. DERMALOGICA SKIN RESURFACING CLEANSER ($44) Use this cleanser preworkout to remove dead skin cells along with dirt and debris. BODY SPRAYS: 3. PROACTIV ACNE CLEARING BODY SPRAY ($35) Prevent bacne before it happens with this salicylic acid body acne spray that can target even the most hardto-reach breakout-prone areas. 4. MURAD CLARIFYING BODY SPRAY ($40) This spray instantly dries and cools as it protects the body from breakouts. It’s a great buy particularly if you don’t have time to shower right after a workout.
woodbury FALL 2018 | 33
WORKOUT WONDERS OIL-FREE MOISTURIZERS: 5. EVE LOM RESCUE OIL FREE MOISTURIZER ($75) This is a lightweight moisturizer that won’t clog pores. 6. CLINIQUE OIL-FREE FACE CREAM BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 30 ($21.50) You already know it’s imperative to wear sunscreen by day so if you work out in the morning opt for an oil-free moisturizer, like this one. TONING SPRAYS: 7. FIRST AID BEAUTY HELLO FAB VITAL GREENS FACE MIST ($18) If you don’t want to weigh skin down with products post-cleanse, opt for a superfood enriched mist for a quick refresh and to prevent any skin tightness. 8. L’OCCITANE AQUA REOTIER MOISTURIZING MIST ($19) This pick is another great mist option, especially for calming and hydrating skin. WIPES: 9. RECESS FACE 101 CLEANSING WIPES ($26) In a pinch, if you don’t have time for a full-face cleanse, opt for these wipes which contain aloe to calm skin and caffeine to fight redness. 10. YES TO CUCUMBERS SOOTHING HYPOALLERGENIC FACIAL WIPES ($5.99) These are refreshing pre-workout wipes perfect for when you’re looking to gently and efficiently remove makeup.
if youʼre prone to redness when working out, but can push bacteria deeper into your pores. SHOWER IMMEDIATELY
People breakout when they donʼt immediately shower after sweating. “When you work out, sweat can mix with your natural body oils and the dirt expelled by the sweat,” says Dr. Gross. “If you wait too long to wash this off, it can settle back into pores and cause more breakouts.” If you canʼt shower immediately, at the very least, wash your face right away and spray your body down with an anti-bacterial salicylic acid spray like Proactiv Acne Clearing Body Spray ($35). CREATE A SKINCARE ROUTINE TO CLEAR UP POST-WORKOUT ACNE
Cleansing right after perspiring heavily is essential, but there are a few things to remember. First, use tepid water and end with a splash of cool (not cold) water to help close your pores. “Never use harsh cleansers or toners that will strip away your natural oils and replenish all of the moisture to rebalance your skin,” says Dr. Gross. “Itʼs best to avoid application of both moisturizer and makeup immediately upon washing after a workout.” If you have trouble ﬁghting the urge to moisturize, donʼt dry your skin completely. Dry it 90% and let the rest air dry, which will mitigate the dry, tight feeling. Alternatively you can use a mist like First Aid Beauty Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist ($18), which is formulated with hydrating and cooling ingredients. LʼOccitane Aqua Reotier Moisturizing Mist ($19) can also help calm skin. 8
SPOT TREATMENTS: 11. LA ROCHE-POSAY EFFACLAR DUO ACNE SPOT TREATMENT ($36.95) Odorless, fast absorbing and non-drying, this is a quick and effective spot treatment to prevent blemishes from further developing post-workout.
A safe cleanser option is Dr. Grossʼ Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel ($38) which is formulated with six acids (acids are naturally antibacterial) to help loosen skin cells so they donʼt clog pores. Azelaic acid is particularly beneficial as itʼs a bactericide and reduces inflammation. If you donʼt have time to do a full cleanse try Recess Face 101 Cleansing Wipes ($26) to quickly clean skin. They contain aloe which simultaneously calms skin and caffeine to fight redness. Save your serious skincare products – both acne and anti-agers for your nighttime routine when your skin is less sensitive. A LITTLE-KNOWN FACT…
As important as it is to wash your face immediately after getting sweaty, a quick cleanse before is equally important. If you donʼt walk into your workout with a clean slate the bacteria combined with the dead skin on your face will clog pores. Try Dermalogica Skin Resurfacing Cleanser ($44), which uses lactic acid to remove dead skin cells while cleansing, conditioning and calming skin. ■ 10 7 5
12. TARTE BLEMISH BULLY ACNE SPOT TREATMENT ($16) If you swear by salicylic acid for your blemishes this one has a 1.5% concentration to target your trouble spots. 6
ACNE PADS: 13. PHILOSOPHY CLEAR DAYS AHEAD ($42) As an alternative to a spot treatment, these pads are pre-moistened with salicylic acid to wash away dead skin cells and help fight blemishes. 14. PETER THOMAS ROTH MAX COMPLEXION CORRECTION PADS ($40) With 2% salicylic acid and 10% glycolic acid these are more potent than other wipes so use these postshower or once your skin has calmed down. 11

Dr. Gross also recommends holding off with anything occlusive because when you increase your metabolism, the oil glands have a natural desire to secrete. “Skin has yet to equilibrate so putting anything on right away may block the pores – wait for skin to cool to room temperature.” He goes on to explain that products are generally designed to be used under certain physiologic conditions; when skin is overheated it can exacerbate redness even when skin is normally not prone to this condition.

GEARING UP 4 BACK-TO-SCHOOL BY ANDREW MOORE-CRISPIN
ASUS Chromebook Flip
LIGHT & SLICK
LOCK I remember back to school time. Buying numerous binders because last year’s were invariably doodled on or destroyed. Getting color-coded dividers to keep notes (because I was going to take those this year) neatly sectioned by subject (because I was going to remember my binder and not just scribble on borrowed paper with a borrowed pen anymore). Choosing a day planner with which to neatly segment my days, my extracurricular activities, my study time and everything else because this year was going to be different. The tools of education have changed but the concept of gearing up to go back to school remains the same. Sure, today’s students are getting their stuff shipped same-day from Amazon or another online retailer rather than dragging themselves around the mall to get the needed supplies. Granted, where earlier generations tried to justify a Trapper Keeper as a needed organizational kit, today’s fresh-faced (or dermatologicallychallenged) youth are trying to keep a straight face while they claim they need that iPad for purely, or at least primarily, academic reasons. So, whether the kids are in kindergarten, middle school, grade school, high school, prep school, finishing school, community college, university, vocational school or whatever, we’ve got you covered with some sweet back to school tech inspiration.

G SUITE FOR EDUCATION G Suite is Googleʼs cloud-based answer to Microsoftʼs incumbent Ofﬁce suite. G Suite replaces Microsoft Word with Docs, Excel with Sheets, Powerpoint with Slides, and so on. It even includes simple site building tools, a chat program and a handy online survey creation tool called Forms. In addition to these word processing, number crunching, presentation and survey tools, G Suite includes a private email inbox thatʼs basically Gmail without the @gmail.com email address.
ASUS CHROMEBOOK FLIP C302CA $499.99, ASUS.COM
Schools from elementary to college and beyond are embracing Googleʼs G Suite for Education. These schools are embracing all of Googleʼs offerings so everything happens in a web browser on a relatively inexpensive and super portable Chromebook laptop. Chromebooks run Chrome OS (as opposed to Windows or macOS). Thereʼs a ton of apps available for Chrome and in addition, many Chromebooks (this one included) can install
and run many of the 3.6 million Android apps in the Google Play store. The ASUS Chromebook Flip C302CA is a great example. Itʼs all-aluminum body is a study in minimalism and at around 2.65lbs and 13.7mm thick, itʼs ultra-light and portable. Its battery is rated for an impressive ten hours. The 12.5-inch touch screen ﬂips between standard laptop, a tented presentation mode or all the way around into tablet mode. As Chromebooks go, this is the best balance of price, performance and portability.
A REAL PRO
MACBOOK PRO $1,299 - $1,949, APPLE.COM/MACBOOK
When something like a Chromebook just isnʼt enough, a MacBook Pro is a full-ﬂedged computer and a particularly beautiful and light one at that, capable of running any app made for Mac. Everything from video editing software, photo editing, 3D modelling and other software (although if your student is serious about video or 3D work, youʼll be stepping up to a considerably more expensive Mac or iMac Pro). MacBooks have moved away from the USB port of old. Instead, everything connects via the newer USB-C standard plug, which
is somewhere around a quarter of the size of a standard USB port. This move is a big part of the reason the newest MacBooks can be as small and light as they are without compromising on power or battery life. Adapters are available for older USB standard devices.
LAPTOP MEETS TABLET
SURFACE PRO $799 - $2,199, MICROSOFT.COM/SURFACE
Windows laptops got cool while we werenʼt looking. Surface Pro is a prime example but there are plenty of “ultrabooks” (super thin, powerful laptops) and “convertibles” (laptops with a rotatable or removable screen) on the market. Surface Pro is a convertible which means it does double duty as a laptop and a tablet. Not some junky, compromised tablet but a smart, usable one. Paired with the Surface Pen (a $100 add-on purchase), Surface becomes an all-sketching, all-annotating, alldiagramming powerhouse. Docked with the keyboard, itʼs perfect for tackling long-form writing assignments too. While no computer is “future proof,” neither the Surface Pro 4 nor the MacBook Pro
will see students through a four-year degree program and into their ﬁrst “real” job, at which point they can start buying their own stuff already, geeze.
OMIE $39.50, OMIELIFE.COM
Parents spend way too much time and effort in packing the perfect little lunch for their perfect little school-aged angels. Check #kidslunch on Instagram for proof. Those perfect little angels then trade that carefully chosen and nutritionally-balanced midday meal for whatever sugary snack someoneʼs willing to offer. The Omie is a bento-style lunch box that might compel kids to stick with what theyʼre given. Itʼs got a vacuum ﬂask section for hot foods and two conﬁgurable cool compartments for anything else you can think of. In the warmer months, the vacuum ﬂask can be removed, leaving a perfectly sandwich-sized square gap. Everything on the Omie is designed so little hands can easily access their edibles without help.
TAPPLOCK ONE $99.99, TAPPLOCK.COM
Digit degradation syndrome is on the rise in elementary and high schools across North America because students are endlessly turning the dials of their combinations locks. Thatʼs not true. Or is it?? (Itʼs not!) Still, combination locks are so last decade. Tapplock One updates the old locker security system for the digital age, at a mere 10x the cost of the old combo lock. This powerful padlock saves students the trouble of remembering their combination too and unlocks with a quick ﬁngerprint scan via Bluetooth or using a chosen Morse code pattern (yes, really). As might be expected for a digital lock such as this, thereʼs an accompanying app that allows students to register ﬁngerprints (up to 500 total) or even set up temporary access for a friend.

Today, everything is online and cloud-based but sometimes you canʼt beat the old sneakernet for a fast, reliable ﬁle transfer. Especially if youʼre dealing with big ﬁles. USB keys have been effectively commoditized but a good one is still worth having, especially when students are switching back and forth between school computers and their own throughout the day. SanDiskʼs iXpand (128 GB) is a good example. Aside from acting as a simple ﬂash drive on a Mac or PC, it also has a Lightning connector to plug into an iPhone or iPad.

OREGON SCIENTIFIC SMART GLOBE $99.99, OREGONSCIENTIFICSTORE.COM
Mark Twain once said that “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” That guy really had a way with words. Teach kids that thereʼs a whole world out there to be explored by showing them what the world looks like from above. Or, for the ﬂat earthers out there, teach kids how to navigate the education systemʼs dogged insistence that the world on which we live is a sphere, despite the fact that you canʼt see the curvature from an airplane. So how do you explain that? Smart Globe adds in a cool augmented reality (AR) feature to the staid globe. With the Oregon Scientiﬁc app, kids can see landmarks and local ﬂora and fauna pop up over the sphereʼs surface when viewed through a smartphone or tabletʼs camera lens. There are 30 learning activities and thousands of pieces of information contained in this Smart Globe including facts about nations, capital cities, history and even national anthems. Kids can use the included Bluetooth Smart Pen to tap on touch points all over the globe and unlock these fun and interesting facts. 48 | FALL 2018 woodbury

SMARTWATCH FOR KIDS
LG GIZMOGADGET $149.99, LG.COM
When should a kid get his or her ﬁrst phone? Itʼs a tough question and a personal decision. A kid-centric smartwatch like this one gives parents the peace of mind that comes with being able to keep in touch without the worry that coincides with kids and smartphones. LG GizmoGadget lets parents see where their children are at any time thanks to the watchʼs built-in GPS. Parents can set up place alerts so they know that the school bus arrived on time, for example. It has simple controls that allow kids to make and receive calls to their parent-programmed list of allowed numbers. There are a few different fun themes kids can choose including Underwater, Space or Princess. There are no distracting games but there are fun little extras like a step counter and a sound effects board. Note: if you think smartwatches look oversized on an adult wrist, you should see one strapped to a kidʼs carpal. The smaller, less expensive but ultimately less functional GizmoPal might help on that front.

SEAGATE BACKUP PLUS SLIM 2TB $89, SEAGATE.COM
“My computer crashed” is the new “my dog ate my homework.” While itʼs more plausible, itʼs equally ineffective as an excuse, no matter where youʼre at in your scholastic career. A portable hard drive is admittedly a little boring. However, it can be an absolute lifesaver. Increasingly, todayʼs laptop computers use solid state drives (SSDs). Theyʼre perfect for the application being faster, more efﬁcient and less prone to failure than their spinning disc counterparts. However, theyʼre also more expensive and so tend to be found in smaller capacities.
Back at home or in the dorm, a standard spinning disc drive offers a ton of storage for course videos, movies, music and whatever else. This keeps the laptop drive free for stuff your student needs to keep with them throughout the day. Both Windows and Mac computers offer an easy to use feature to back up everything on the laptop to a portable hard drive and to keep the backup up-to-date automatically any time the drive is plugged in.
YOU GOTTA EAT
INSTANT POT MAX $200, INSTANTPOT.COM
Some dorms have strict rules about cooking appliances and may not permit hot plates but allow self-contained appliances. A do-it-all appliance like the Instant Pot Max and a couple of go-to recipes can help your student avoid the dreaded “freshman 15” (pounds of extra weight from eating poorly). Youʼve probably heard about Instant Pot, itʼs something of an internet darling. With good reason, too. There are thousands of simple recipes that can be made, thereʼs no splatter or mess, and no exposed heating elements. Ten minutes of prep and a half hour of cook time can net a nutritious and tasty one-pot meal. Your student can safely make rice, soups, porridge, curries, stews, veggies and meats. The 6 quart Instant Pot Max takes everything people love about the original and adds in touch screen control, automatic venting options, an automatic stirrer and other neat features to make cooking a truly set it and forget it affair for students. No word yet on whether there will be smaller models of the Max like there are of other Instant Pot models.
TASK LIGHTING WITH A DIFFERENCE RIGGAD LAMP $69.99, IKEA.COM
cool stuff Wireless charging uses magnetic induction to power up your phone; just plunk it down on a charging pad and the power ﬂows with no cords or cables to plug in. It feels a bit like magic. Many modern smartphones, including Apple iPhone 8 and up, count wireless charging among their useful features. The RIGGAD lamp is an LED reading and task lamp that features a wireless charging pad in the base that can power up any wireless charging-capable phone. Whatʼs more, it includes a handy USB port in the base of the lamp for charging other devices like tablets, smart watches or anything that has a USB power plug, which is to say most things these days. In dorm rooms and bedrooms, space can be at a premium so any device that can pull double-duty deserves a look.
MUST-HAVE APPS FOR STUDENTS WOLFRAM ALPHA ANDROID/IOS - FREE
Weʼre all familiar with search engines. Contrast that with WolframAlpha, which is more like an answer engine. It deals in facts, not opinions covering just about anything you can think of. Want to want know the thermal
expansion coefﬁcient of carbon steel alloy or graph a complex equation? WolframAlpha is a veritable font of knowledge, right in a studentʼs pocket. CLEAR FOCUS ANDROID/IOS - FREE ($2.49 FOR PRO)
After a certain point, students may be reading but may not be retaining. The Pomodoro Technique is a proven study and deep work technique that divides the task up into 20 or 25 minute deep sessions separated by short breaks and longer rests. Apparently, this keeps the brain in the best possible state to understand and retain information. Thereʼs no shortage of Pomodoro timers. This one for both Android and iOS checks all the boxes and students would do well to give the method a try. STUDY BLUE ANDROID/IOS - FREE
Flash cards are an age-old study aid and a concept updated with the times. Using the smartphone app, students can create their own ﬂash card sets. Where the app really comes into its
own is in the ability to ﬁnd ﬂash card decks other people taking the same course have made. In other words, students can spend more time studying course material and less time prepping course material to study. CIRCLE OF SIX ANDROID/IOS - FREE
Circle of Six is basically the buddy system for the digital age. Students set their circle of friends and the app can help reunite the crew should someone take a wrong turn. Anyone in the circle can call for help with a tap, sending their GPS location to the rest of the circle so they know where to go to offer assistance. ALARMY: SLEEP IF U CAN ANDROID/IOS - FREE
Say goodbye to that dangerous snooze button. When the alarm set chimes, there is no easy way to turn it off... at all. Instead, students have to complete a task, like solve a math problem, shake the phone a few dozen times or, a personal favorite, physically get out of bed to take a picture of something, like a sink or the coffee maker, before Alarmy will ﬁnally shut up. ■

IT’S EASY TO GET LOST IN THE RUSH OF FALL. FROM LABOR DAY TO THANKSGIVING, THERE ARE JUST 80 SHORT DAYS, ALL OF WHICH CAN PASS BY FASTER THAN THE LEAVES FROM THE TREES IF YOU’RE NOT CAREFUL. WHAT BETTER WAY TO SAVOR THE MOMENT THAN TO PRE-RESERVE A LITTLE DOWN TIME IN THE FORM OF A WEEKEND GETAWAY? WE’VE ROUNDED UP EIGHT OF OUR FAVORITES, FROM BUZZY NEW RESORTS AND FUN FOODIE DESTINATIONS TO SEXY COUPLE’S ESCAPES, ALL AN EASY FLIGHT OR DRIVE, NO PASSPORT REQUIRED. WHILE WE LOVE BIG CITES, WE’VE BYPASSED THOSE DESTINATIONS FULL OF HUSTLE AND BUSTLE, FOCUSING INSTEAD ON LESS-TRAVELED DESTINATIONS WHERE YOU CAN TRULY GET AWAY FROM IT ALL AND RELAX.

travel From the top: Fresh-from-the-garden dishes at Twin Farms, Palmetto Bluff’s destination bridge and newly-renovated suite interiors at Blantyre.
FIT FOR FOODIES If Michelin stars and James Beard Awards make your heart go pitter patter, look no further than these luxe escapes that make food a focal point.
TWIN FARMS Barnard, Vermont Once the private retreat of Nobel Prize-winning author Sinclair Lewis, Twin Farms today offers a discreet private playground for those wanting a dose of nature with their luxury vacation. Adults only and just 20 rooms, take your pick among picturesque cottages tucked into hillsides of flowering meadows or expansive suites, each offering unique décor. We love the Scandinavian-inspired barn cottage with a wood-burning fireplace and screenedin porch, or the Aviary, which offers a private stone hot tub. Begin each day with a lavish, multi-course breakfast—signature soufflé pancakes are a must — before spending your days hiking, biking or fly fishing with onsite Orvis guides. But whatever you do be sure to save room for lunch and dinner, designed as custom multi-course tasting menus where Chef Nathan Rich discreetly and seamlessly adjusts seasonal and local fare to your dietary and palate preferences. Over a recent weekend, we enjoyed everything from soba noodles and seared tuna to local rabbit and decadent Bolognese pasta. Wines, cocktails and yes, even gratuities, are included, so you’ll easily find yourself saying “yes please” to another. We won’t judge if you miss your planned morning hike and hit the well-appointed spa instead. Fly or Drive? It’s a relatively easy — and scenic — five hour drive. We’d suggest having a car while on property, but if you prefer to come by air, fly to Manchester, Burlington or Boston. The resort can also accommodate helicopter and private arrivals. Pro Tip: If the weather doesn’t cooperate, cozy up in Twigg’s Pub and call for a cocktail — the Maple Manhattan is our beverage of choice — or try your hand at one of the resort’s many Stave jigsaw puzzles. If you’re hooked, you can visit the nearby factory as well as tour the Simon Pearce glass workshop or Shackleton Thomas furniture store, all about 30 minutes away.
BLACKBERRY FARM Walland, Tennessee Nestled in the foothills of Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains, Blackberry Farm is the kind of place that makes you want to leave the city forever. Owned by the same family that
founded the property nearly four decades ago, the 4,200-acre estate and 62-room hotel practically invented the boutique farm-to-table trend. Spend time with the resort’s impressive collection of food-focused artisans, from cheese maker to master gardener to jam lady, each of whom know how to create a symphony of unique flavors and experiences. Did we mention there were puppies? The resort also raises Lagotto Romagnolo dogs, specifically bred to hunt for Italian truffles. But no trip is complete without a night at The Barn, the James Beard-winning house restaurant that serves up signature Foothills Cuisine. If you can, make the visit for signature event weekends, which bring everything from A-list musical acts (usually of the country variety) to food or wellness escapes. In September, Delicious Hospitality Group, the team behind SoHo’s Charlie Bird, Pasquale Jones and Legacy Records restaurants will host a food-filled weekend, and in October, you can embark on a three-day wellness retreat filled with spa fare, fall foliage hikes and, of course, massages. Fly or Drive? Fly to Knoxville. Pro Tip: Later this year, the property will open Blackberry Mountain, an expansion about 20 minutes from the original, featuring new cabins, cottages, two new restaurants and wellness-focused programming.
THE INN AT DOS BRISAS Washington, Texas Just one hour outside of Houston, the Inn at Dos Brisas is a nine room oasis, a working ranch turned luxury guest retreat that promises both ample privacy and top-notch culinary delights. In fact, it boasts the only Forbes Five-Star restaurant in the state of Texas. Spend your days outdoors on horseback, taking shooting lessons or indulging in class with a master gardener. You’ll work up an appetite for the homemade cookies left in-room at turndown, or a thirst for one of the cellar’s 7,000 bottles. Rooms are spacious — casitas, the original accommodations, start at 800 square feet and newer haciendas extend to nearly 3,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor space. Both offer an upscale Western vibe. That is, if cowboys used 1,200 thread count linens and relaxed with in-room fireplaces. Given the intimate size, even when the property if full, you’ll feel as if you’re the only guests there. Fly or Drive? Fly to Houston. Pro Tip: Trade in your car for a golf cart; it’s the easiest way to get around the property.
ADULTS ONLY AND JUST 20 ROOMS, TAKE YOUR PICK AMONG PICTURESQUE COTTAGES TUCKED INTO HILLSIDES OR EXPANSIVE SUITES, EACH OFFERING UNIQUE DÉCOR AT TWIN FARMS. 64 | FALL 2018 woodbury

BLANTYRE Lenox, Massachusetts
Pro Tip: Get your aggression out with a new tomahawk throwing class. Want something a bit more zen? Try out the new meditation and yoga deck.
Fresh from new ownership and a top-to-bottom renovation, this century-old Gilded Age mansion has been transformed into a luxury hotel in the Berkshires, leaving us more excited than ever to spend the weekend. Designed in the style of an Elizabethan Tudor manor and named after the original owner’s ancestral home in Scotland, Blantyre evokes the bucolic UK countryside more than it does the tony Berkshires it calls home. Boasting a 10,000-bottle cellar and the first year-round Dom Perignon-inspired bar in North America, the resort calls to not only foodies, but also those seeking relaxation, who can indulge to their heart’s content by the fireplaces, in strategically-placed hammocks throughout the gardens, or enjoying leisurely lawn games such as croquet. Rooms have been tastefully updated in shades of blue-grey, moss green and lavender, with more modern touches such as a new cottage designed by Serena & Lily and in-room De’Longhi espresso and cappuccino machines. Fly or Drive? It’s an easy four hour drive. Pro Tip: The renovation upped the décor game and new management has also elevated the service. OHM Collection, the group behind behind fave Rhode Island luxury resorts Ocean House and Weekapaug Inn, is now running the property. PRIMLAND RESORT Meadows of Dan, Virginia If you tell friends you’re off to the Meadows of Dan, they may think you’re making up a mythical place to get a laugh. That is, until you explain that you’re headed to reallife Primland, an off-the-radar East Coast escape where founder Didier Primat envisioned a place where you’ll feel both a sense of family and private retreat; far from the cares of the world. Nestled just over the border from North Carolina, Primland offers everything one might wish for in a fall weekend escape, from a luxurious spa to an 18-hole course designed by Don Steel to an archery space and shooting range. Bunk down in the main lodge or indulge your inner child in a not-so-rustic tree house, where you’ll wake up to enjoy coffee on your expansive deck overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. 66 | FALL 2018 woodbury
FAMILY GETAWAY Leverage those school holidays to get out of town for a long-weekend escape that you’ll be talking about for months to come. MONTAGE PALMETTO BLUFF Bluffton, South Carolina Nestled in the South Carolina Lowcountry between Hilton Head and Savannah, there sits a 20,000 acre planned development, housing the only Montage-branded resort on the East Coast. The quaint resort complex offers the perfect laid-back family escape, pairing walking trails, a village, marina, multiple restaurants and a signature Jack Nicklaus golf course in an environment that feels both Antebellum and modern. Embrace your inner Scarlett O’Hara with a walk underneath towering oak trees or a cruise on the resort’s Hinckley picnic boat along the May River. Take a conservancy tour with “Big Jay” Walea, a resort legend who knows the resort’s 20,000 acres like the back of his hand, and get a real lay of—and appreciation for—the land. By evening, indulge in gourmet s’mores around the bonfire, a rousing round at the inhouse bowling alley or simply enjoy a cocktail on your cottage’s private porch. The resort offers 200 well-appointed guest rooms but we prefer the private cottage accommodations or Montage Private Residences, which are ideal for multi-generational escapes. Fly or Drive? Fly to Savannah. It’s up to you if you wish to rent a car. You can ride your bike through much of the resort, but you might want a car to explore nearby Hilton Head or take a day trip to Savannah. Pro Tip: If you’re visiting sans children, plan your trip in November to take part in the annual “Music to Your Mouth” festival, a rousing weekend of award-winning food, wine and of course, music. The event culminates in a surprise musical performance; at a recent festival, we caught performances by country stars Midland as well as the Barenaked Ladies.

travel WE LOVE THE NEW “DEEP REST” MASSAGE WHICH VOWS TO HELP RESET SLEEP PATTERNS; THE HOT TUB COTTAGES ARE A CLOSE SECOND. FOUR SEASONS HOTEL at THE SURF CLUB; Surfside, Florida This fall, skip Miami and head up the coast a bit to Surfside, where the East Coast’s newest Four Seasons is a magnificent reinvention of the gorgeous Prohibition-era Surf Club, once owned by tire king Harvey Firestone. Reinvented by Richard Meier, today the resort is a mix of new modern glass towers and the original Mediterranean charm, resulting in a beautiful mélange of old and new. Relax poolside or on the 900 feet of pristine white sand beach or hit the shops of Bal Harbour by day. At night, don’t miss hotel restaurant Le Sirenuse, inspired by the Positano original. Located in the hotel’s original ballroom, where the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Frank Sinatra once danced the night away, is today a chic restaurant with Amalfi Coast flair designed by Joseph Dirand, who has worked with everyone from Givenchy to Alexander Wang. Younger ones will love the Kids for All Seasons club, which offers everything from arts and crafts to the latest gaming consoles and equipment. At just 72 rooms and five sexy overnight cabanas, the property feels at once intimate and grand.

Care to linger longer? A fall “stay more” promotion promises a fourth night free. Fly or Drive? Fly, darling, into Miami or Fort Lauderdale. Pro Tip: Don’t miss a stroll down the terracotta tiled Peacock Alley, where you’ll find historic black-and-white photos of the hotel during its heyday. You’ll spot everyone from Dean Martin to Winston Churchill. FOR SPA SEEKERS Take a girlfriend getaway or a weekend for just the two of you. This resort mixes wellness with a dose of the good life. LAKE AUSTIN SPA RESORT Austin, Texas Perched along the shores of Lake Austin, a mere 30 minutes outside the Texan capital, you’ll step into a 40-room retreat that feels miles away from the live music and hipster heaven that is Austin. Promising three all-inclusive meals of gorgeous spa cuisine and more than a dozen fitness options per day, ranging from stand-up
paddle boarding to yoga, boot camp and TRX, Lake Austin Spa feels more like a weekend at a chic girlfriend’s country house than it does a diehard wellness retreat. Relax in garden-style cabins with California king beds and fresh-cut garden flowers. We love the hot tub cottages, perfect for a leisurely soak after a day of spa services and fitness classes. Treatments take place in the 25,000 square foot LakeHouse spa, a barn-style oasis offering more than 100 different treatments — we love the new “Deep Rest” massage which vows to help reset sleep patterns. Fly or Drive? It’s an easy flight to Austin where you can combine your trip with a few nights in the city if desired. Pro Tip: It’s totally cool to come solo or enjoy a solitary meal while your travel companion is in a treatment or class. The resort offers a “friendship table” where you can join other single ladies and gents for a meal, in your robe, if you desire! No wine shaming here, either. You can partake in vino for an a la carte fee. ■

house and home
An upper-level walkway serves as the “spine” of the second floor and allows light throughout; midcentury modern furniture passes the comfort test.
Grazer’s Santa Monica home, created by the architecture firm Rios Clementi Hale Studios and decorated by interior designer Waldo Fernandez, manages that balance perfectly.
Every party house needs some quiet space.
Even famous Hollywood producers like Brian Grazer, for whom entertaining large crowds at home is a way of life, crave private spots in their homes where they can spend time with family and forget about work.

When Grazer and the architects first visited this 1930s Cliff May ranch house, they were taken aback by its sprawling, nonsensical design, said project architect Huay Wee (her first name is pronounced “Way”). “It was a bit gnarly and strange,” she said, and looked as though “someone in the 80s built a manor. His intent was to build something for generations to come, but it didn’t work out that way.” The stone-cladded house was oddly proportioned — tall and skinny — and arranged like a maze, with a meandering circulation and an awkward allocation of space. Fernandez was more direct. “Mark Rios did an incredible job because the house was super, super ugly.” Since the property sat on a plateau adjacent to a country club and the views of the canyon beyond were incredible, Rios and his architectural team decided to “dissolve the house” and take advantage of its narrowness to highlight the view beyond, said Wee. They changed the height proportions by dropping the ceilings slightly, enlarging the windows and adding glass doors so that both light and people could flow through the house. Inspired by European barns, the architects decided to keep the structure’s pitched roof (to which they added skylights) and nicknamed it “the new barn.” A separate garage was converted into a screening room with a full-service bar. The opaque, solid-looking room, which has no windows on the front side, is one of the first things you see when pulling up to the house. An innovative brise soleil, which diffuses outdoor light, helps reduce the visual mass of the building, “so it felt a little lighter and more modern and open to the garden,” Wee said. This manages to provide privacy as well as an interplay between shadow and

light. A Japanese-like gravel surround wraps around the house and creates a mini courtyard near the kitchen at the back of the house. A ginkgo tree was planted there, and as one of the few plants that seasonally changes color in California, it has leaves that turn a fresh yellow-green before they drop. This creates, at least for Wee, a sacred space at the house. Almost equally magical is a water feature created for the front of the house, in place of the pond that originally existed there. When you are hosting parties at home in California, you need something really grand at the entry, Wee explained, and at night this water feature reflects light and bridges the gap between the interior glow of the house and the exterior darkness. “We were really trying the make the house seem lighter,” she said. Inside, stone and wood floors unite the indoor and outdoor spaces. They begin in the porte cochere, cross over the reflecting pool, enter the house through a dramatic double-height entry and wrap around the back patios and decks overlooking the pool and nearby golf course. The architects were challenged to create a clear circulation inside and unite the separate spaces. Originally you could not navigate the upper walkway and get from one side of the second level to the other without going up and down stairs. The architects flipped the layout of the upper floor, relocating the master suite, along with his-and-her dressing rooms and a luxurious master bathroom, to what Wee called “the private side of the house.” The walkway now runs the length of the floor, brings light from one end of the residence to the other, and serves as the “spine” of the upper floor. A sculptural staircase, featuring a blackened stainless steel plate that acts as a balustrade, leads to the second-floor office, which overlooks the interior public spaces of the first floor as well as the exterior entryway, motor court and the Santa Monica Mountains. There are three additional bedrooms on the second floor and one on the main level. Each bedroom has an en suite bath; there is also a powder room and a pool bath for parties. 74 | FALL 2018 woodbury 68
house and home
Above right, a 1940s French buffet with tile inserts complements both the art above it and the sprawling dining table; below left, an innovative brise soleil at the front of the house provides both privacy and an interplay of light and shadow.
One of the features Wee is most proud of is the pop-out cantilevered spaces in both the master suite and one of the children’s bedrooms. In these modern steel boxes there is a daybed surrounded by modern bay windows, and when you stand in them, you feel as if you are floating in space, she said. Downstairs, the modern kitchen has a wall of pocket windows that fold open in order to pass food to the patio during parties. This home hosts a lot of parties, and it was critical that all of the public spaces, the bar, patio and brise soleil, connect to one another and be easy to navigate. Another criterion — because this is Hollywood, after all — was that the interior furnishings be unique. In the entertainment industry, many of the same people go to the same parties and so every host wants decorative pieces never seen before, Wee said. Fernandez is a master at pulling together vintage European designs and mixing them with items that are fun, cushy and comfortable, she said. “I like beautiful stuff,” Fernandez said. “A lot of midcentury modern stuff. But then I want to throw myself on the sofa and be comfortable.” Grazer has an extensive art collection, but did not want the pieces displayed as though they were in a museum or gallery, Wee said. Fernandez distributed the artwork throughout the house based on the size of the artwork and the size of the available walls, as well as the amount of sunlight and other available light in the room. The art goes in after the furniture. Fernandez’ approach to design for this house was simple. His client has been all over, he said, and is popular among what he called the “Hollywood group.” “I wanted something that would last a long WM time and look good.” ■ woodbury FALL FALL 2018 2018 || 69 75 woodbury

My Sister, The Serial Killer
D I S GU I S ED
by Oyinkan Braithwaite
STORIES are chilling. Even more disturbing than a drawn-out crime mystery is a killing spree that is committed casually in the midst of a seemingly mundane life. In Oyinkan Braithwaiteʼs intense new novel, My Sister, The Serial Killer, the characters reveal how far one will go to protect a guilty family member who slaughters people without a thought. Cleaning up blood is second nature to Korede, a hard-working nurse in a local hospital in Lagos. When the blood is from the victim of one of her sister, Ayoolaʼs, brutal crimes, however, Koredeʼs job takes on another dimension. Her terror is not enough to make her report the act to the police, and she ﬁnds herself in the middle of the devious lies her sister is spinning. As Ayoolaʼs boyfriends continue to disappear, Korede falls into a state of numbness, protecting her sister and supressing the nagging doubt that is building inside of her. While living with her sisterʼs heavy secret, Korede arrives at work each morning, eager to make an impression on Tade, the handsome, young doctor on whom she has a crush. At home, Korede urges her sister, unsuccessfully, to put dating on hold for a while, especially since one of her victimsʼ family members has been desperately posting social media pleas for help ﬁnding him. When Ayoola visits Korede at work one day, Tade is instantly interested in her, and despite Koredeʼs repeated attempts to stop the relationship, the two begin dating. Mistaking Koredeʼs warnings for jealousy, Tade ignores his coworker and continues to court her charismatic sister. When he realizes too late that Ayoola is not at all what she appears to be, his attempts to enlist Koredeʼs help fall short. This talented Nigerian author spins a fascinating tale of tragedy and satire with her intelligent writing. Her characters are three dimensional and their behaviors, often bafﬂing and infuriating, highlight the inconsistencies within human interaction. With her straightforward, understated prose, Braithwaiteʼs ability to shock the reader expands with each page. As the horrifying events unfold, the thrill intensiﬁes.

A S A FEEL - GOOD R OMA N C E , Lisa Gabrieleʼs newest page-turner gradually transforms into a psychological thriller. Based on the classic novel Rebecca, the story parallels the lofty, introspective tone of the original, adding a modern ﬂair that mixes old-world charm with contemporary style. The plot begins in the Grand Cayman Islands, where the 26-year-old, unnamed narrator is making ends meet by working for a boating company. She meets handsome Max Winter, a wealthy New Yorker, who repeatedly rents out boats and requests her as his captain. Cautious at ﬁrst, the narrator eventually lets her guard down and loses herself in the whirlwind of their mutual attraction. Their surprise romance leads to an engagement and sends them back to his elegant family estate located on its own island in the Hamptons. As soon as the narrator is swept away from her Caribbean existence, she is thrown into the glamorous life of the Winters. After staying in a luxury hotel suite in Manhattan for a few nights, the couple makes the long drive to the East End of Long Island, where she gets her ﬁrst glimpse of Asherley, Maxʼs grand mansion, and is introduced to his feisty teenage daughter, Dani. Getting used to being pampered is not easy for a woman with such a simple background, and she desperately tries to ﬁt into this foreign life, while her ﬁancé, running for state ofﬁce, heads off to state dinners and other high-proﬁle events without her. What is even more disturbing than being waited on, however, is the shadow of Maxʼs late wife, Rebekah, which seems to lurk behind every corner of the property. As Maxʼs ﬁancé attempts to ﬁnd answers about his former marriage, and Daniʼs secretive life, she uncovers more than she had anticipated. What transpires is something she could never have foreseen. The Winters brings out the natural charm of the balmy Caribbean and the bare beauty of the wintertime Hamptons, while building up the tension that ends with a dramatic conclusion.
Gone So Long by Andre Dubus III
T HER E A R E MA N Y TI MES when people in relationships jokingly say they want to kill their romantic partner. In Gone So Long, Andre Dubus IIIʼs ﬁrst book since his 1999 bestseller House of Sand and Fog, a young man fails to control his anger toward his wife, resulting in a horriﬁc murder which leads to a lifetime of pain for all those involved. Danny Ahearn, having been raised in amusement parks along the east coast, meets the love of his life at a carnival park on the coast of Boston. When Linda becomes pregnant, the young couple gets married and settles into a life together there. As Danny becomes increasingly jealous of the attention given to his beautiful wife, an unstable fury surfaces and in a ﬁt of rage, he stabs his wife to death in their small kitchen, as their three-year-old daughter looks on. He spends the next 15 years of his life in prison, and when he is released, he claims to be a different person. Susan Dunn, an adjunct professor at a small college in Florida, has a spotty history with dating. Now, at 43-years-old, she is in the third year of a marriage to an academic who studies musicology. Their life together in the quaint college town appears to be ideal. Susan, who was raised by her maternal grandmother, canʼt let go of the fact that her mother was senselessly murdered and ripped away from her when she was a little girl. As she continues to search for meaning, a shocking letter from her father, whom she has not had contact with in 40 years, sends her into a ﬁt of shock and uncertainty. While her grandmother angrily spews hatred toward her daughterʼs murderer, Susan grapples with her opposing emotions of love and anger. While this novel, at over 400 pages, unfolds slowly and the writing can lag at times, the subject is compelling and the author develops his characters beautifully. The issues of forgiveness and redemption are explored from every angle. ■

It has changed from the endless jackknives I used to do, but abs are very important no matter what stage of life you are going through. Favorite move right now while pregnant and focused on abs: plank with leg extensions. Starting in plank position, in socks or using sliders, slide your right leg out to the side and up towards hands and return back to starting plank position. Alternate to the other side. This move works the obliques into a great burn!

Most people will begin by lightly rocking the body back and forth as if to start a skipping pull-up. Pull yourself up and over rolling your chest over the bar where you find yourself in a dip position. From there, you can press and lock out your arms to complete the move at the top of the bar. Best diet tip? Don’t fall victim to the
circumstance of convenience. A lot of people find themselves eating unhealthy food because it’s a convenient go-to in their environment. I think meal prepping
fi tness the day or night before is a great way to stay prepared. If you can’t, or don’t feel comfortable meal prepping, let someone else do it. There are many services out there that deliver healthy meals on a weekly basis. If a meal delivery service is unavailable to you, take these three tips with you: 1. Drink more water. 2. Avoid processed food. 3. Cut out as much sugar and alcohol as you can in the next month and see how you feel.

gift that keeps on giving. Sure, there’s a hamstring-glute focus, but it requires your entire body to work (especially our most often- forgotten posterior chain, the entire back side of your body, core included!).
Start standing with your feet hip distance apart and your toes facing forward. Holding dumbbells in your hands on the front of your thighs, arms are long, chest tall, and shoulder blades pulled back without letting your ribs flair. Keep your bodyweight even between the front and back of your foot, drive your hips backward as you simultaneously lower your chest and bend your knees. Stop the weights top to mid shin and keep them tight to your body. Keeping the weights as close to your legs as possible, exhale and begin to pull hips forward as you straighten your legs and lift your chest back up to start position. Best diet tip? Eat more veggies! Honestly,
we need more than we think. It’s nutrient dense, satiating, high in fiber fast-acting fuel. They don’t take long to digest and are low in calories. Veggies should make up 75% of our plates. They help keep us hydrated too.

THE SURVEY SAYS?
Results are reflective of the American population.
by IFIC STAFF Interntational Food Information Council
ONE-THIRD OF AMERICANS ARE DIETING, INCLUDING ONE IN 10 WHO FAST... WHILE CONSUMERS ALSO HUNGER FOR ORGANIC, “NATURAL” AND SUSTAINABLE FOODS. More than one in three U.S. consumers are following a specific diet or eating pattern, and they are increasingly averse to carbohydrates and sugar, according to the 13th Annual Food and Health Survey, recently released by the International Food Information Council (IFIC) Foundation. Given a list of diets to choose from, or the option to write in a response, 36 percent of Americans reported following a specific eating pattern or diet within the past year, about twoand-a-half times the number (14 percent) from 2017 when it was an open-ended question. 82 | FALL 2018 woodbury
The top eating pattern cited was intermittent fasting (10 percent). Diets considered at least somewhat restrictive of carbohydrates were well-represented, including Paleo (7 percent), low-carb (5 percent), Whole30 (5 percent), high-protein (4 percent) and ketogenic/high-fat (3 percent). Younger consumers (ages 18 to 34) were more likely to follow a specific eating pattern or diet than those 35 and above. More Americans than in previous years blame carbs, and specifically sugars, for weight gain. While sugars continue to be the most cited cause of weight gain (33 percent), carbohydrates ranked second at 25 percent, up from 20 percent in 2017. Both of those numbers are the highest since 2011. Fats (16 percent), protein (3 percent) and “all sources” (17 percent) lagged behind when placing blame. Cardiovascular Health Is Top Desired Benefit, But Consumers Don’t Know How To Achieve It Almost all consumers are interested in getting specific health benefits from food or nutrients. However, the top two desired health benefits in 2018 changed places from 2017: this year,
20 percent ranked cardiovascular health as their top desired benefit, followed by weight loss or weight management at 18 percent and energy at 13 percent. In 2017, those numbers were 16 percent, 32 percent and 14 percent, respectively. But consumers don’t know, and remain confused, about how to achieve these desired outcomes; only 38 percent are able to name a food they would seek out to help with their top health concern. Protein was most frequently identified (10 percent), followed by vegetables (7 percent), vitamins and minerals (5 percent) and fruits (4 percent). “This dietary disconnect — the inability to connect specific foods and nutrients to desired health outcomes — illustrates the need for stronger, clearer, nutrition education based on the best available evidence,” said Joseph Clayton, CEO of the IFIC Foundation. Eight in 10 (80 percent) consumers said there is a lot of conflicting information about what foods to eat or avoid, a number similar to 2017. Of those people, 59 percent say that
nutrition CONTEXT IS KEY IN HOW CONSUMERS PERCEIVE THE HEALTHFULNESS OF TWO PRODUCTS WITH OTHERWISE IDENTICAL NUTRITIONAL CONTENT. conflicting information makes them doubt their food choices—but the data shows a troubling disparity among ethnicities, with those who doubt their choices as a result of conflicting information rising to 78 percent of Hispanic consumers. Organics, “Natural” and Sustainability Grow As Priorities “Food values” continue their growth as a factor in consumers’ decision-making, with organics increasingly popular in purchasing choices. When shopping for foods and beverages, 29 percent buy those labeled “organic,” up from 25 percent in 2017. The increase is even more significant when people eat out: 20 percent said they eat at restaurants with foods and beverages advertised as organic compared to 14 percent last year. Similarly, 37 percent of shoppers bought foods and beverages billed as “natural,” up from 31 percent in 2017, and 26 percent of consumers ate at restaurants with “natural” food and beverage options compared to 23 percent in 2017. The importance of sustainability in food production also loomed larger in 2018, with 59 percent of consumers saying it’s important that the foods they purchase and consume be produced in a sustainable way, jumping up from 50 percent in 2017. Out of those 59 percent who believe sustainability is important, their top two most important individual factors of sustainability increased significantly over 2017: 33 percent in 2018 said reducing pesticides was their top priority, up from 27 percent in 2017, while ensuring an affordable food supply increased to 16 percent in 2018 from 10 percent last year. Consumers Favorable to the Familiar, Averse to the “Artificial” The key drivers behind consumers’ food and beverage purchases are largely unchanged in 2018. Taste still reigns supreme (as it has every year the Food and Health Survey has been conducted), with 81 percent saying it has at least some impact in their buying decisions, followed by familiarity (a new addition in this year’s survey, at 65 percent), price (64 percent), healthfulness (61 percent), convenience (54 percent) and sustainability (39 percent). Perhaps unsurprisingly in the current communications environment, consumers are averse to artificial ingredients, at least compared to the alternatives. When asked to choose between two versions of the same product — an older one that includes artificial ingredients and a newer version that does not — seven in 10 (69 percent) chose the product
with no artificial ingredients, while one-third (32 percent) chose the one containing artificial ingredients. We also asked those who preferred a product with no artificial ingredients how much they would be willing to pay versus a similar product with artificial ingredients that cost $1.00: 62 percent would pay up to 10 percent more ($1.10) for the product without artificial ingredients; 42 percent would pay up to 50 percent more ($1.50); and 22 percent would pay double the price ($2.00). Context is also key in how consumers perceive the healthfulness of two products with otherwise identical nutritional content. When asked to identify the healthier of two products with the same nutrition facts panel, 40 percent perceived one labeled “non-GMO” as healthier vs. 15 percent for one with genetically engineered ingredients and 33 percent believed a product with a shorter ingredient list was healthier than one with more ingredients (15 percent). But a little of the luster is off the “fresh food” halo from last year, at least compared to frozen foods. A significant change from 2017 was that 41 percent in 2018 perceived a fresh product to be healthier than a frozen one, which dropped from 47 percent last year, while 10 percent (in both 2017 and 2018) believed frozen products were healthier. Trust in Government Agencies Grows, Reliance on Multitude of Sources for Nutrition Information This year and last year, we asked consumers to rate the sources where they often get information about what to eat or avoid, as well as how much they trust those sources. Among 14 sources listed, government agencies recorded the biggest increases, far and away, in both measures. In 2018, 19 percent of consumers said they often get such information from a government agency, nearly double the 11 percent in 2017, and 38 percent said they trust government agencies as an information source, up from 25 percent in 2017. (One caveat: this year’s question gave specific examples of agencies — USDA, EPA, FDA and CDC — whereas last year’s only mentioned government agencies in general.) Friends/family members and personal healthcare professionals tied at 30 percent as the most relied-upon sources of information; however, healthcare professionals are far more trusted (66 percent) than friends and family (26 percent). “Consumers continue to rely heavily on nutrition information sources they admit
they don’t trust,” said Alexandra LewinZwerdling, Vice President for Research and Partnerships at the IFIC Foundation. “This may speak to the public confusion we have consistently found on topics of nutrition and food safety.” In a couple of examples of a generational information gap, Americans age 65 and older were more likely (76 percent) to trust a registered dietitian compared to adults age 35 and younger (65 percent). In addition, when asked which source of information most influenced their opinion on food safety issues, 44 percent of those age 65 and older cited news articles or headlines, while only 16 percent of those age 18 to 34 agreed. Our Dinner Plates Don’t Match “MyPlate” What Americans believe the experts recommend about which foods should fill an adult’s dinner plate isn’t too far off from the actual guidance from USDA’s “MyPlate.” But when it comes to what we actually eat… well, that’s a different story. USDA’s “MyPlate” recommends that our plates be filled with about half fruits and vegetables, with the rest of the plate divided up by grains (half of which should be whole grains) and protein, with dairy represented by a separate circle next to the plate. When consumers were asked which foods they believe experts recommend should fill our plates, they were on the mark with vegetables (30 percent) and fruits (21 percent), while protein (29 percent) and grains (20 percent) made up the balance. What we really eat diverges from the recommendations, with protein leading the way at 38 percent, followed by vegetables (29 percent), grains (21 percent) and fruits (12 percent). About half (48 percent) said they include dairy often or always; only 2 percent said they never include dairy products. Methodology The results are derived from an online survey of 1,009 Americans ages 18 – 80, conducted March 12 to March 26, 2018. Results were weighted to ensure that they are reflective of the American population, as seen in the 2017 Current Population Survey. Specifically, they were weighted by age, education, gender, race/ethnicity and region.

REALITY CHECK E-CIGARETTES AND VAPING IN SCHOOL
By Dr. Eric Presser
Most of us aren’t clued in to teen speak. Trying to decipher the emoji-laiden messages on my daughter’s iPhone is tough enough, as a text filled with yellow faces and vegetables clearly means “I’m eating dinner at Megan’s.” And that’s when she actually wants me to understand her communication. So when parents hear new teen buzz words like “JUUL,” I can understand why it may not register.
Students easily go undetected using their sleeve to release a vape high.
But that plume of e-cigarette vapor was a dead giveaway that something was amiss. With the JUUL e-cigarette, the vapor disappears in seconds. Students can discreetly take a puff and subtly blow it down their sleeve, often going unnoticed. And this is happening not only on the bus, but feet away from teachers in a classroom setting; completely inconspicuous and nearly impossible to reprehend.
Many parents probably think JUUL is the new Candy Crush or Fortnite saga. But if you hear your teen talking about JUULing, you had better pay attention because they are talking about a new insidious way of smoking, or worse, getting high. JUUL is a new type of e-cigarette whose main feature is discretion. Have you ever been waiting in traffic and see the car next to you suddenly fill with smoke? That’s an e-cigarette. With JUUL, the vapor is much less obvious allowing users to “vape” discreetly. As someone who has walked through a plume of this noxious e-cigarette discharge, I say thank goodness as most e-cigarette users are unaware of the cancer-causing side effects they are blowing into public domain. But speaking as a parent this is very troubling. E-cigarettes were originally developed to create a healthier alternative to smoking because the heat source is a battery rather than a flame, which reduces the smoker’s inhalation of nitrogen and other harmful chemicals. Hence why you “smoke” cigarettes but “vape” e-cigs. As a physician, I support this attempt to help wean adult smokers off cigarettes. But the slick design, fruity and sweet flavors and rebellious image that has always been associated with smoking makes vaping vastly more attractive to kids.

Vaping puts our children at a higher risk of lung cancer and ultimately, death. We all take breathing for granted until we can’t. The vaping haze the future holds is real.
Yes, e-cigarettes are less unhealthy than traditional cigarettes like getting hit by a car is less painful than getting hit by a truck. So let’s break down what is actually in e-cigarettes: nicotine, chemical flavorings, metals like lead, volatile organic compounds as well as other cancer-causing agents. Nicotine is not only physically and psychologically addictive, but long-term exposure can have lasting effects on adolescent brain development, specifically in the areas that directly affect emotional and cognitive processing. The Center for Disease Control warns that “early exposure to nicotine during the transition from child to adult may be harmful, since it may derange the normal course of the brain maturation.” And if you think this doesn’t apply to your non-vaping teen, you’re wrong. In 2016, the CDC reported more than 2 million U.S. middle and high school students used e-cigarettes in a 30 day span, including 4.3% of
JUUL’S SLICK DESIGN AND CANDY-THEMED FLAVORS PAIRED WITH THE RUSH OF DECEPTION AND REBELLION HAS THE NEXT GENERATION ON THE FAST TRACK FOR SOCIAL SMOKING AND MEDICAL PROBLEMS. middle school students and 11.3% of high school students. However, that figure balloons to 1 in 4 U.S. youths when you consider the effects of second-hand vapor. Contrary to popular opinion, e-cigarettes don’t just discharge water vapor, but also a potent cocktail of chemicals that others can be exposed to, similar to secondhand smoke.
ted to deterring young people, as well as adults who do not currently smoke, from using our products.” Burns says “we cannot be more emphatic on this point: no young person or nonnicotine user should ever try JUUL.”
One major misconception about lung cancer is that many people think it is a self-inflicted disease. As a thoracic surgeon, I can tell you this is not always the case. Up to 15% of lung cancer patients were never smokers but were exposed to airborne toxins such as those in secondhand smoke.
It may not seem like it, but we teach our children what is cool. And by “we,” I mean our society. We are a culture of conspicuous coolness, regardless of addiction. We clutch our iPhones the same way our parents clutched a pack of cigarettes 50 years ago. If our generation can signal to our children that addiction to anything – approval, technology, nicotine – is not a sign of strength or power, but of dependence, then they may possibly be able to resist the seductive pull of e-cigarette marketing and the peer pressure that inevitably follows. As a father, I try to educate my kids about those dangers and hopefully I inspire them to not only be nonsmokers but to also help their friends make the same choices.
Then there are those chemicals used to create the JUUL flavors. While food flavorings are classified by the FDA as Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS), that designation is for ingestion, not for inhalation. There is little published research on inhaling food flavorings, since the concept began with e-cigarettes just a few years ago. However, diacetyl and acetyl propionyl, chemicals used in the flavorings, have been shown to cause bronchiolitis obliterans, also known as popcorn lungs, which is a scarring of the tiny air sacs in the lungs resulting in the thickening and narrowing of the airways if inhaled in large enough quantities. What many e-cigarette companies claim is that these devices are not intended for children or other non-smokers. They should only be used to help adults quit smoking. But we’ve been down this same road before with cigarettes. Companies claim they are marketing to adults and never intend to get children hooked, but inevitably, some do. Teens favor JUUL because the nicotine content is high enough to experience a rush, stimulating the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine and increases the levels of a chemical messenger in the brain called dopamine, while being small enough to hide from teachers and other students during class time. According to JUUL Chief Administrative Officer Ashley Gould, the company’s main objectives are to “provide the 38 million American adult smokers with meaningful alternatives to cigarettes while also ensuring that individuals who are not already smokers, particularly young people, are not attracted to nicotine products such as JUUL.” Kevin Burns, the Chief Executive Officer at JUUL, passionately states they are “commit-
So what can you do to keep your teens from vaping?
If someone you know is already addicted to vaping, a simple yet powerful tool to help with the attempt to quit is to overload on lollipops. Every time the urge strikes, grab a lollipop to satisfy the oral fixation. To satisfy the nicotine addiction of the mind and body, use a nicotine patch. Taking these steps have a proven success rate. Not only is education of the dangers and consequences of vaping crucial, but helping our youth develop the ability to delay their constant need for immediate gratification could help end this addictive trend, as we are slowly seeing with cigarettes. Many teens would never touch a cigarette, yet they think vaping and JUULing is cool and safe. Once again, it’s time to put the brakes on the marketing sensationalism so we do not create another regretful and unhealthy generation. Let me be very clear – vaping puts our children at a higher risk of lung cancer and ultimately, death. We all take breathing for granted until we can’t. If we want to lift the vaping haze the future holds, be empowered by the facts and teach them to your children. ■ Dr. Eric Presser is the author of An Empowering Guide to Lung Cancer: Six Steps to Taking Charge of Your Care and Your Life.

LAWSUITS MOUNT AGAINST JUUL FOR TARGETING TEENS WITH FALSE CLAIMS OF SAFETY According to The Washington Post, Juul Labs has claimed its product is for adult smokers only, but several lawsuits contradict that mission. The filings allege the start-up deceptively marketed the Juul as safe and targeted youth from the get-go. Juul Labs spokeswoman Victoria Davis told The Post in an email that company officials “do not believe the cases have merit and will be defending them vigorously.” But researchers say that Juul’s sly age-verification technique and social media marketing campaigns are most revealing of the company’s true intent. The San Francisco-based company, which launched in June 2015, grew sevenfold this year, according to a study published by Tobacco Control. “That’s just an indication of how quickly Juuls became prevalent,” recounted Esfand Nafisi, a lawyer who is handling two of three lawsuits initiated against Juul Labs last month. “You blinked your eye, and suddenly they were all over the place.” One of Nafisi’s cases against Juul is a nationwide class action. According to The Post, the 10 named plaintiffs, who range from 14 years old to adult users living in several states, allege that Juul caused nicotine addiction in consumers. According to court documents, the Juul device is “more potent than a cigarette,” allowing high levels of nicotine to enter the bloodstream at a faster speed than cigarettes. “How much nicotine is the Juul actually delivering into the bloodstream of an average person?” Nafisi asked. “If it’s far more than a cigarette, we believe that’s information that ought to have been disclosed but was not.” The class action also alleges that Juul’s advertising campaigns, primarily through social media, targeted youths under the legal smoking age. So does another suit filed in a New York federal court last month by attorney Jason Solotaroff on behalf of a soon-to-be high school sophomore identified only as D.P. The 15-year-old tech aficionado, a jazz player and track star, began attending a new high school where Juuling was rampant. It was “on the school bus, in the bathrooms, outside school and even in class,” according to court documents. Solotaroff told The Washington Post that it didn’t take much time before the boy was hooked and grew intensely addicted.

TODAY’S OB/GYN ANSWERS YOUR QUESTIONS WEIGHT & PREGNANCY HPV, TEENAGERS & TUBAL LIGATION Q. WHAT IS BMI AND HOW DO I FIND OUT MINE?
A. Knowing your body mass index, or BMI, can offer an objective indication of whether or not your weight falls into a healthy range. BMI is most easily explained as the intersection between your height and weight and is an attempt to quantify the amount of tissue mass (muscle, fat, and bone) in an individual and then categorize that person as underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on that value. To figure out your BMI, divide your weight in kilograms (if your scale only has pounds, use the conversion of 2.2 pounds = 1 kilogram) by your height in meters squared. But don’t worry about complicated math! Simply use one of the many online BMI calculators or charts which compare your height to your weight with the press of a button.
Q. WHAT EFFECT DOES OBESITY HAVE ON FERTILITY?
A. Obese women have a higher incidence of developing the hormonal disorder PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and since 50-80% of women with PCOS are obese, and obesity causes PCOS to become worse, it’s a truly vicious cycle. In general, obesity increases insulin levels which in turn increase androgens; male hormones that get converted into estrogen in the fat tissue. Excess androgens can lead to unwanted male-pattern hair growth (hirsutism) and acne as well as lack of ovula-

tion and infrequent periods leading to difficulties getting pregnant. PCOS is the cause of 6-8% of overall infertility cases, however, the condition can be improved dramatically by weight loss. Even if a woman loses only 5-10% of her body weight, there can still be a significant improvement in infertility and PCOS side effects.1
Q. IS THERE ANY EFFECT OF OBESITY ON BIRTH CONTROL?
A. Women who are obese have a higher rate of failure with oral contraceptive pills and patches, and with use, also put themselves at greater risk for blood clots because of excess weight. If you have an issue with obesity, speak to your doctor about LARC methods (long-acting reversible contraceptive methods) such as an intrauterine device (IUD) or the implantable progesterone releasing arm rod called Nexplanon. There are risks and benefits to all contraceptive methods and the decision should be individualized and based on many factors in your history. Since your doctor knows you best, ask what methods he/she recommends, taking obesity into consideration when making the decision.

pregnancy which can be serious or even fatal. There is also a higher chance of developing preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, as well as having an excessively large baby (macrosomia), stillbirth or an emergency C-section. For the baby, the pregnancy-related conditions of preeclampsia, neural tube defects and cardiac defects as well as gestational diabetes and macrosomia can predispose the baby to untoward fetal events and birth trauma. Children of obese mothers also have a higher chance of childhood obesity.
Q. IF I AM OBESE, SHOULD I LOSE WEIGHT OR GO ON A DIET DURING PREGNANCY?
A. While eating properly is very important, we do not encourage obese patients to diet during this time. We do, however, recommend decreasing the amount of weight gain in pregnancy. A normal weight woman should gain between 25-35 pounds, whereas an overweight woman should target only 15-25 extra pounds and obese women no more than 11-20 pounds. 2 Maintaining a nutritious diet is strongly suggested during pregnancy and patients who are overweight or obese should be encouraged to consult a nutritionist to develop healthy eating habits that can limit excessive weight gain and therefore reduce maternal and fetal complications and improve outcomes.
A. Absolutely. Obesity plays a major role in the morbidity and mortality of mother and baby. In regard to maternal risks, obese women have a greater chance of experiencing blood clots in their legs and/or lungs during

comorbidity such as diabetes or hypertension who failed conservative therapy with diet and exercise are candidates for bariatric surgery.
Q. DOES BARIATRIC SURGERY HELP YOUR FERTILITY?
A. Yes. Obese women have ovulation problems and a higher risk of infertility so weight loss from whatever means, bariatric surgery included, can improve fertility. PCOS symptoms can also improve, leading to a more regular ovulation cycle, which can enhance pregnancy rates.
Q. HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO GET PREGNANT AFTER BARIATRIC SURGERY?
A. In general, women should wait one to two years after bariatric surgery to get pregnant. Most of the weight loss associated with the procedure occurs in the first one to two years and it is best to avoid pregnancy in the phase where you are losing the most weight. This way, weight loss is optimized before you get pregnant and any nutritional deficiencies developed due to the bariatric surgery will be identified, stabilized and dealt with prior to pregnancy. Women who lose a significant amount of weight with bariatric surgery prior to pregnancy have lower risks of gestational diabetes, hypertension, preterm labor and large for gestational age (LGA) babies.
Q. I HAD BARIATRIC SURGERY IN THE PAST AND I AM PREGNANT. WHAT SHOULD MY DOCTOR AND I LOOK OUT FOR?
A. 1. During pregnancy, you should be comanaged by a team including an obstetrician, bariatric surgeon and nutritionist to comprehensively take care of you and your baby in the best possible way. 2. There are certain nutritional deficiencies associated with an actual gastric bypass, depending on the type of bariatric procedure you had. Certain vitamins and nutrients may not be absorbed and should be noted, such as levels of iron, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin D and calcium. Supplementation may be necessary if there is a deficiency, and levels should be followed throughout your pregnancy. 3. Some bariatric procedures may prevent you from taking large pills such as certain prenatal vitamins, so your doctor will most likely recommend liquid or chewable alternatives. 4. You should be watched for gestational diabetes and screened in the first trimester as well as the routine screening between 24 and 28 weeks. 5. Your doctor should follow sonograms for fetal growth on a monthly basis as women who have had bariatric surgery have a higher chance of growth restricted babies.

Q. IF I HAD THE ENTIRE THREE SHOT
IATRIC SURGERY IN THE PAST?
SERIES OF GARDASIL BEFORE I BECAME SEXUALLY ACTIVE, HOW COULD IT BE POSSIBLE THAT MY PAP WAS ABNORMAL AND MY HPV WAS POSITIVE THIS YEAR?
A. C-section would be used for the same indications in bariatric surgery patients as in all others. Even though there may be a higher risk of C-section in patients who have had bariatric surgery in the past, there is no reason why you should not attempt a vaginal delivery if there are no maternal or fetal contraindications.
Q. IF I AM OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE, DO I HAVE A HIGHER CHANCE OF DEVELOPING A FEMALE CANCER?
A. Yes. Obese women have a higher incidence of breast, ovarian, uterine and colorectal cancers. Being obese is not just about having an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, as cancer risks are elevated as well.
Q. I AM 26 YEARS OLD AND REALLY WANT TO HAVE AN HPV TEST WITH MY PAP SMEAR BUT MY DOCTOR SAID NO. WHY, AND CAN I INSIST ON HAVING ONE?
A. It is not recommended for women under the age of 30 to have an HPV test with their pap smear because HPV is more common for them and is usually a transient infection. However, women 30 years of age or older should do cotesting (pap smear plus an HPV test). If you are under the age of 30 and have a pap smear with atypical squamous cells, a “reflex” HPV test will be done. This means the fluid that the pap smear is sent in will then be tested for high risk types of the HPV virus. If positive and you are over 24 years old, a colposcopy (microscopic examination of the cervix) will be recommended as cervical cancer, which is truly what we are screening for, is mainly a disease found in women 30 and older.
A. The old HPV vaccines covered the four most important types of HPV (6 and 11 that cause genital warts and 16 and 18 which are the most often implicated in cervical precancers and cancers) and the new Gardasil vaccine covers nine strains of the HPV virus. However, since there are over 100 different types of HPV, it is still possible to contract many other types despite having had the vaccine.
Q. IF I ALREADY HAD SEX, IS IT WORTH GETTING THE HPV VACCINE? I MAY HAVE ALREADY CAUGHT THE VIRUS.
A. If you are between ages 9-26 (male or female), you should have the HPV vaccine series even if you have already had sexual relations. The HPV vaccine series covers nine strains and even if you have already contracted one or two strains (it will not provide protection against those you have already caught prevaccination), you will still receive protection against the other strains not yet contracted.
Q. I AM 19 YEARS OLD AND HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY ACTIVE SINCE THE AGE OF 16. WHY WON’T MY DOCTOR DO THE PAP SMEAR YET?
A. It is not recommended to perform a first pap smear until age 21 regardless of the age you began sexual activity. The rationale is that the chance of cervical cancer in that age range is practically one in a million so it is not indicated and can lead to unnecessary invasive testing.
Q. I AM OVER 30 AND MY DOCTOR DOES COTESTING WITH A PAP AND HPV TEST. WHAT HAPPENS IF MY PAP IS NEGATIVE BUT MY HIGH-RISK HPV TEST IS POSITIVE?
A. Your doctor should look at your last pap smear and co-testing. If the high risk HPV test was positive last year and again this year, you need a colposcopy. If the high risk HPV test was negative last year but positive this year with a normal pap, all you have to do is repeat the pap and HPV tests next year. The exception to this rule is if the laboratory typed the HPV and it is type 16 or 18, then you should have a colposcopy now. With a negative pap and a positive HPV (with the prior pap and HPV negative), you should repeat pap and HPV in one year. If the HPV still tests positive when you repeat co-testing next year, you need a colposcopy. If it is negative you can return to routine screening.
Q. MY GRANDMOTHER IS 67 AND HER DOCTOR TOLD HER THAT SHE NEVER HAS TO HAVE ANOTHER PAP SMEAR. IS THAT TRUE?
A. It is not recommended for low-risk women who have had negative screenings in the last ten years to continue with pap smears over the age of 65. The exception is women who have had cervical cancer in the past, or high grade dysplasia of the cervix in the last 20 years.
Q. MY DOCTOR DOESN’T DO A PAP ON ME ANYMORE BECAUSE I HAD A HYSTERECTOMY LAST YEAR, BUT MY FRIEND’S DOCTOR DOES A PAP ON HER AND SHE ALSO HAD A HYSTERECTOMY. WHY?
A. If you had your cervix removed along with
If you had your cervix removed along with your uterus (a total hysterectomy) and you have never had cervical cancer or high grade cervical dysplasia in the last 20 years, you never need to have another pap smear. your uterus (a total hysterectomy) and you have never had cervical cancer or high grade cervical dysplasia in the last 20 years, you never need to have another pap smear. In the case of your friend, her doctor may have left her cervix behind at the time of hysterectomy (called a supracervical hysterectomy). In that case, routine pap smears with timing based on age should be continued up to the age of 65. Alternatively, your friend may have had a history of high grade cervical dysplasia in the last 20 years or cervical cancer at any time in the past. Every clinical scenario is different so make sure you ask your doctor about your particular situation.
Q. I KEEP HAVING ABNORMAL PAP SMEARS WITH PERSISTENCE OF THE HIGH RISK HPV VIRUS. IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO HELP GET RID OF THE VIRUS?
A. Unfortunately, viruses are not like bacteria that can be eradicated with antibiotics. Your immune system has to suppress the HPV virus and put it under control. Anything you can do to boost your immune system will help, such as eating well and healthy, getting eight hours of sleep a night, keeping up with a regular exercise routine, taking a multivitamin daily and trying to avoid physical and emotional stress. Make sure you avoid smoking and secondhand smoke as both accelerate the integration of the HPV virus. Adding a B complex vitamin to your daily regimen may be most beneficial. Make sure you follow up regularly with your gynecologist so appropriate surveillance can be done.
Q. MY DAUGHTER GOT HER PERIOD FOR THE FIRST TIME AT 13. IT IS A YEAR LATER AND SHE ONLY GOT HER PERIOD THREE TIMES. IS THAT NORMAL?
A. There is nothing to worry about, as this is very common. It can take a year or two after menarche (the first menstrual period) for cycles to become regular and for the hypothalamic-pituitary axis to develop.
Q. MY DAUGHTER IS IN HER FIRST YEAR OF COLLEGE AND VERY STRESSED. SHE ALWAYS HAD REGULAR PERIODS AND NOW IT HAS BEEN FOUR MONTHS WITHOUT A PERIOD. SHOULD I BE CONCERNED AND WHAT SHOULD I DO?
A. Most likely the stress of college has caused her issue of amenorrhea (not getting a period). This is unlikely to be a serious medical issue but it must be addressed and treated and I recommend you take her for an evaluation with a gynecologist. First and foremost in this situation, the gynecologist would have a private conversation with your daughter to see if she is sexually active and a urine pregnancy test would be an important first step. If negative, a full history and physical examination plus blood tests would be performed to check thyroid function, prolactin levels and ovarian hormones (LH and FSH). Most often this is a benign issue of hypothalamic amenorrhea which is very common in young girls. It manifests from physical or emotional stress, significant weight loss or change in diet or extreme physical activity as seen in ballet dancers or competitive athletes. There is a normal feedback loop in the brain between the hypothalamus and pituitary gland and then to the ovary and uterus with regard to the menstrual cycle. When there is a disruptive effect of stress, weight loss or vigorous exercise, some patients experience a cessation or sparsity of menses. This should be corrected to help reestablish hormonal balance either by administering progesterone intermittently or oral contraceptive pills.
Q. MY DAUGHTER IS ON THE BIRTH CONTROL PILL BUT NEVER GETS A PERIOD WHICH MAKES US BOTH NERVOUS. IS THIS NORMAL?
A. The period one gets on a birth control pill is artificial and not necessary; it is a very different scenario when someone is not on the pill and doesn’t get a period. Then there are medical concerns that require diagnostic tests and potential therapeutic interventions. If you don’t miss any pills and there is no reason to suspect that you are pregnant you can be reassured that this is common and normal and does not represent a pathologic situation. If despite this reassurance you are still not happy on the pill that is not giving you a period, speak with your doctor and he/she can change your birth control pill to one that contains a slightly higher dose of estrogen which will be more likely to give you a monthly period.
FALLOPIAN TUBES REMOVED INSTEAD. WHY?
A. Traditional bilateral tubal ligation is one of the most popular methods of permanent contraception. In the last few years it has been shown that there are more non-contraceptive benefits of performing bilateral salpingectomies (removal of both fallopian tubes) as an alternative procedure to bilateral tubal ligation. It is more effective as well as having cancer-protective properties. In patients who undergo tubal ligation at the time of C-section, a “knuckle” of fallopian tube is removed from the right and left tubes; the cut ends are no longer connected and pregnancy can no longer ensue. There is, however, a small chance of recanalization of the fallopian tubes after tubal ligation, as well as a higher chance of ectopic pregnancy if you get pregnant in an already ligated tube. The risk of actual pregnancy after bilateral tubal ligation is 1/300 to 1/3,000. With salpingectomies, there is virtually no chance of pregnancy, so efficacy is markedly increased. Both fallopian tubes are removed in their entirety eliminating the possibility of developing a dilated fallopian tube or post tubal ligation syndrome. Most importantly, by eliminating the tubes, you are decreasing the risk of future development of ovarian cancer because recent studies show that ovarian cancer may originate from the fallopian tube. Both tubal ligation and salpingectomies are to be considered non-reversible and permanent so be sure you have a thorough discussion with your gynecologist about the risks, benefits and alternatives to the procedures and decide if either is right for you. ■ Reference 1: Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology.

We’ve traded in our swimsuits and sandals for sweaters and boots,
so it’s only natural to switch out the wines we’re drinking too. Don’t get us wrong, the days of hard and fast wine rules are long behind us and you can sip whatever you like all year round. But somehow those light, quaffable bottles don’t taste quite the same in October as they did in July, do they?
Just because the mercury is dipping, though, doesn’t mean white wine fans need to eschew their favorite vino and automatically uncork a red instead. But you may want to think about subbing in richer options that better cozy up to crisp fall temps and the dishes we’re craving right now. That might mean passing over the zesty acidity and puckering passion fruit notes of a New Zealand sauvignon blanc or the lemony, tart green apple-tinged flavor of a pinot grigio for something else. White Burgundy, made in several appellations in its namesake French region from the chardonnay grape, tends to be fuller, earthier, more restrained and elegant, with a lighter touch of oak than its New World counterparts (buttery California chardonnay, I’m looking at you). Greek wine is hot, and Assyrtiko from the Greek island of Santorini is a less-expected varietal that’ll wow your friends at book 90 | FALL 2018 woodbury
group or dinner club. It picks up minerality and salinity from the volcanic soil and sea breezes and is a rare white that touts fullbody and high acidity in tandem. It’s also incredibly age-worthy, so feel free to give it a nap in your cellar and see the interesting ways in which it evolves. During this cool-but-not-cold time of year, seek out red wines that strike that deft balance of structure and fruity drinkability. Chinon from France’s Loire Valley is made from the cabernet franc grape and shows red fruit, a whiff of violet and an appealing vegetal note that can veer toward green pepper (in a good way). And though we tend to associate Portugal with its famous fortified wine, port, the country is a treasure trove of red blends made with local varietals including touriga francesa, touriga nacional and tinta roriz (the latter is called tempranillo
in Spain, where it’s used for Rioja). All are super drinkable and versatile at the table_ or with nothing else except a few good friends. Of course, you can (and should) drink sparkling wine all year long, as it’s an underrated wine that wakes up and cleanses your palate, and partners with practically everything. But instead of the expected Champagne, Cava or Prosecco, how about Franciacorta from Lombardy in Italy? Produced in the same method as its swanky French counterpart, it’s riper, fuller and fruitier thanks to the warmer climate. Or for something really different, pop open a bottle of Lambrusco from Emilia-Romagna, also in Italy. Modern versions are fizzy, fresh, fruity yet surprisingly dry. CLICK TO SIP

selection of boutique wineries or join one of her four wine clubs: Starter, Standard, Red Lovers or Cheese & Wine. Either way, these are bottles you can feel good about. Also earth-friendly are organic and biodynamic wines. The former options are made without the use of chemical or artificial pesticides or herbicides, while the latter also incorporate a more holistic approach to winegrowing and winemaking. This includes considering the local ecosystem and water conservation, using natural treatments and incorporating vineyard practices tied to the phases of the moon. You can find a great selection of organic and biodynamic wines from all around the world, as well as those without sulfites, using non-GMO grapes and vegan options, at EcoVine Wine Club

(ecovinewineclub.com). They also have the world’s first organic wine club, which delivers three or more bottles per month straight to your doorstep. If high-end wines are more your style, head to WineBid (winebid.com), which features luxury wines like First Growth Bordeaux and cult expressions in a weekly auction, handpicked by the team behind Peloton Imports. And if you don’t want to compete against others or risk losing a beloved bottle, the “Buy Now” section gives you instant gratification. Incredible deals of the week are often themed around a region, grape or style. Finally, if you are a persnickety oenophile who craves a selection as vast as what’s on the shelves at the wine megastore you frequent, you’ll love K&L Wine Merchants (klwines. com). Launched in 1976, it’s touted as being the best and most robust online retailer in the U.S. Savvy buyers scour domestic and international producers to bring you a catalog of
options with a depth and breadth you won’t see anywhere else. You can also take part in auctions with authentically guaranteed bottles, join one of five wine clubs (Best Buy, Premi-
um, Signature Red, Champagne or Italiano) or use their personal sommelier service to curate monthly deliveries tailored to your tastes. It truly is a one-stop shop for rabid wine fans.
FALL IN LOVE WITH THESE ADDICTIVELY UNCORK-ABLE WINES Stemmari Grillo ($12): Grown on volcanic soil on the island of Sicily, this white wine appeals to fans of both chardonnay and sauvignon blanc with tropical flavors, florality and vibrant acidity. 2015 Kanonkop Estate Pinotage ($38): A hybrid of cinsault and pinot noir from South Africa, this offering touts elegant, ripe tannins, red fruit
and a touch of “forest floor” earthiness. 2014 Gaia Agiorgitiko ($28): Made from one of Greece’s signature red varietals, this wine boasts juicy cherry, plum and a touch of spiciness. Gérard Bertrand Corbières ($20): This deep, concentrated, full-bodied wine from southwest France offers
notes of black fruit, spice and licorice and an elegant finish. 2015 Long Meadow Ranch Anderson Valley Chardonnay ($40): Produced with fruit from Mendocino Valley, it shows more tension, salinity and minerality than Napa or Sonoma chard. ■
