Reasons why dog crates work

DEAR DIDI: I don't understand why people are putting their dogs in a cage these days. We never did that growing up with our dogs. They were perfectly happy outside and now my trainer is recommending that I crate my dog inside to potty train her.

Tips for reducing eye strain

DEAR DR. ROACH: Would you mind providing some guidelines for preventing eye strain? I'm a graduate student, so I spend a lot of time reading, both from computer screens and from books. I will always need to read to get things done, but I'd also like my eyes to last me my whole life. -- B.I.

The best bmi for a long life

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an 81-year-old man in good health. I am 5 feet, 11 inches tall and now weigh 175 pounds after intentionally losing 15 pounds through a combination of diet and exercise.
