Each month freelance journalist Rita Colorito
scans scores of the latest health studies to bring you health

Health Page. Part of the sandwich generation, Rita cares for
her son Erick, 5, and for her 82-year-old mother, Maria. When it

Erick enjoys traveling, Rita and her husband, Bret, hope to resume
their wanderlust, though she still misses her cats, Rosebud and
Oliver, when she's away.
