America’s 35 Best Hot Dogs

The hot dog is one of the few foods that’s nearly impossible to screw up. You heat it through, tuck it into a bun, squirt on some mustard, and call it lunch.

7 Things Your Hands Say About Your Health

hey're one of the most important parts of our body when it comes to day-to-day activities; without them we couldn't cut vegetables, grip pliers, or text our friends. They're revealing, too: Not only do scars and age spots recount our personal history but mystics all the way back to prehistory have "read" our futures in their lines and whorls. But what if your hands could say more about you than that? What if, looking down at your palms and the five digits attached to them, you could discover early signs of conditions or diseases you weren't aware of yet? "It used to be common for doctors to look at the hands for important clues to overall health," says endocrinologist Kenneth Blanchard of Newton, Massachusetts.
