Quitting will improve your health
David Sanfilippo quit smoking four years ago and lost weight, too. He had lots of help from his wife, Dawn, as well as other family members and friends – but he credits his primary care doctor for providing the key evidence to change his ways. It came in the form of blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar tests ordered by Dr. Fuad Sheriff. "He yelled at me enough during annual physicals that I dropped 40 pounds," cracked Sanfilippo, 35, of Williamsville. “I don't drink pop anymore. No fast food. It's about maintaining the good stuff." Sanfilippo squares with an Independent Health survey of Western New Yorkers released this week that shows patients have deep faith in primary care providers. The vast majority of those who participated in the survey said they see those providers as gatekeepers for their health care.

Story highlights Some health systems are exploring the idea of using artificial intelligence One doctor worries it could affect continuity of care for patients (CNN)One morning, Charlie Latuske woke up feverish and somewhat delirious in his home in Surrey in the UK, leaving him unable to function and in need of a doctor. He'd endured a sore throat and general malaise for a few days, believing it would get better, but that morning in August 2017, he knew that he had to do something about it. "I was quite out of it," said 27-year old Latuske, who was also due to go on vacation with his wife in just three days. Short on time, he dreaded the idea of calling his local general practitioner only to wait days or even a week for an appointment, or to wait in a queue for an emergency appointment.

So, what kind of health-boosting benefits does raw milk have to offer?
