  • Apple is developing an AI-powered health coach under the codename Quartz, Bloomberg reported.

  • It will use Apple Watch data to monitor diet, exercise, and sleep patterns, then suggest changes.

  • While reportedly set to be released next year, the initiative remains unannounced.

The future of wellness is Artificial Intelligence, with an algorithmic coach making customized suggestions for when to exercise and sleep, what snacks to eat — even how to improve your mood.

At least, that’s what the development team at Apple seems to be thinking.

Bloomberg first reported the tech giant’s plan to create an AI-powered health coaching service, currently under development with the codename “Quartz.” It would use data from Apple Watch users to monitor sleep patterns, exercise routines, diet, and emotions, then suggest personalized healthy changes based

It’s a heart-smart way to eat, and can be beneficial in many other areas of health as well. Mediterranean dieters also tend to have lower risk for certain cancers, cognitive decline, type 2 diabetes and more.

Circling back to heart disease risk, the Mediterranean diet tied for first in the U.S. News and World Report‘s 2022

A health data privacy showdown

The Federal Trade Commission’s notice last week about its plan to crack down on health care companies that use customer data for marketing signals legal warfare to come.

That’s according to the legal experts Ben consulted.

The plan to use a 14-year-old cybersecurity rule “really is pushing the envelope,” said Kirk Nahra, a privacy attorney at law firm WilmerHale.

He added: The agency is “retroactively” looking to “revise the rule to fit enforcement actions that it has already taken.”

Nahra expects plenty of comments about the notice’s scope — at this point, it remains a proposal, not a final rule — and potential legal challenges if the FTC doesn’t scale it back.

“They are 100 percent right that health data … does need more comprehensive privacy regulation, but I’m not sure FTC has been

Fix Your Health by Fixing Your Diet

One of my recent patients, a 34-year-old man who works from home and consumes a diet high in sugar, refined carbohydrates and processed foods, is a prime example of how lifestyle choices can impact one’s overall health. During his medical examination, I discovered that his metabolic health was at risk due to his unhealthy lifestyle choices. The results were worrying. He had high levels of insulin resistance which meant his body was struggling to regulate blood sugar levels. He also had elevated triglycerides levels, low high-density lipoproteins (good cholesterol). He was at risk of developing obesity, type-2 diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, which are all linked to a diet and a sedentary lifestyle.
