Excerpt • In Why We Remember, neuroscientist Charan Ranganath explains why ordinary forgetfulness isn’t a sign of decline—and why perfect recall hardly matters to our brains anyway. Here, he describes how we tend to organize our memories and the ways that nostalgia can both help and trip us up.

Preservation • Her nude bras filled a gap in the market for women of colour. Now Chantal Carter wants to help save their lives by teaching them to recognize breast cancer symptoms

RECIPES • Murielle Banackissa’s new cookbook, Savoring, delivers globetrotting vegan recipes inspired by her childhood in the Republic of Congo and her current home in Montreal. Here are some tasty highlights.

Feel It in Your Bones

Goods • 16 Expert Picks to Combat Dry Skin

THAT’S JUST SWELL • Researchers are discovering the ways that inflammation can affect more than just your body—and how taming it might offer hope for people struggling to treat their depression.

GUT FEELING • Down in the dumps? It might be time to look beyond your brain and into your belly.

“I THOUGHT I HAD A HANGOVER. A MONTH LATER, I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH MS.”

SILENT SIGNS OF MS • MS is called “the great masquerader” because its symptoms are so easy to brush off as something else. If you have any of these symptoms, get them checked by a doctor.

SEEiNG RED • Why are there still so many weird myths about periods? In Blood, Jen Gunter cuts through the nonsense.

The Great One • Seija Parnanen-Matthews was inspired to hit the ice when her oldest son started hockey. Being a role model for her kids—like her late father, a former phys ed teacher, was for her—motives this single parent to stay playful and active.
