FOOD SAFETY NEWS – Growing up in South Carolina, Independence Day was fraught with danger. Most years we spent the holiday at my Aunt Debbie’s timeshare condo in Myrtle Beach.
The condo was on a golf course, and my brothers and I spent the days scavenging balls from the ponds and dodging errant shots from our would-be customers. We rode to and from the beach without seatbelts, in the back of a station wagon,...
FOOD SAFETY NEWS – The increasing prevalence of a foodborne parasite has spurred the FDA to develop an action plan for dealing with Cyclospora contamination, with a special focus on fresh produce.
The Food and Drug Administration unveiled the plan yesterday, July 1, referencing the first known contamination in U.S. produce in 2018, as well as an outbreak that year traced to McDonald’s salads.
However, a statement issued with the plan does not mention a recall...
"The owners of these establishments are free to run their businesses as they like (just as I’m free to take my business elsewhere). But, if they really care about uplifting their workers, they should worry less about corporate virtue-signaling and more about actually improving their business."
Maybe you’ve had surgery on your vertebrae, spinal injections, or a long series of physical therapy (PT) appointments.
Or perhaps, you've simply survived the pandemic, spent too much time confined at home, and simply need to get your body moving and start enjoying your favorite activities again.

THE NEW YORK TIMES – Years of training and preparation to reach the Tokyo Olympics are out the window for Shelby Houlihan, an American runner, because of a positive drug test.
She says a pork burrito is to blame.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld a four-year suspension that took effect on Monday for Houlihan, who holds American records for 1,500- and 5,000-meter races and tested positive for the anabolic steroid nandrolone.
The court’s move...
Biotech company AquaBounty Technologies Inc. announced that it is harvesting several tons of genetically modified salmon, which will soon be sold at restaurants and other “away-from-home” dining retailers around the country where the federal GMO labeling law does not apply.
SCIENCE DAILY – Waking up just one hour earlier could reduce a person's risk of major depression by 23%, suggests a sweeping new genetic study published May 26 in the journal JAMA Psychiatry.
The study of 840,000 people, by researchers at University of Colorado Boulder and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, represents some of the strongest evidence yet that chronotype -- a person's propensity to sleep at a certain time -- influences depression...
WMTW | BIDDEFORD, Maine — Whenever dispatchers Dylan Martin and Lori Penney take a 911 call, one of the first and most important questions they ask each caller is "where are you?"
That question proved especially important on Tuesday when a call came in from a kayaker off the coast of Biddeford who had gotten caught in fast-changing weather and dragged more than a mile offshore.
"He didn't have a clue where he was. He was...
EATDRINKBETTER – Meal kits like those provided by companies like Purple Carrot, Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, Plated, SunBasket, and more promote a lot of things we stand behind:
high-quality ingredients, reducing food waste, and helping people learn to cook (or at least cook at home, while following a very detailed recipe).
We love all of these things about meal kits, but there are few things NOT to love too. A new study reveals some...
