New study finds vegetarianism and veganism could lead to higher risk of stroke
If you were considering swearing off meat for health reasons, maybe don't throw away that bacon cheeseburger just yet. At least not if all that you're trying to prevent is a stroke. A report by researchers at Oxford published in the British Medical Journal found that out of nearly 50,000 people studied, vegetarians and vegans had a 20 percent higher rate of stroke than meat eaters.
Restaurant Closed After Video Showed Owner Washing Kitchen Equipment in a Lake
Old Hickory, Tennessee's No. 1 Chinese Restaurant has pretty decent reviews, save for a Yelp comment from last year claiming its food has a "hint taste [sic] of soap or some other type of cleaner." It turns out, however, that when it comes to washing, that might be the least of the restaurant's problems.
Lance Glover and his girlfriend were visiting the nearby Old Hickory Lake yesterday, when they saw the restaurant's owners in the lake, scrubbing down kitchen supplies. In a video that Glover shared with FOX17 Nashville and posted on Facebook, someone is crouched down in the water cleaning a rack, followed by a second person who brings along plastic containers.

FORBIDDEN ACTS IN LEVITICUS WHAT WERE THE GRAIN
The other main dietary law taken from the Bible is also taken from Leviticus ( and ). Here the Bible says that man should eat "whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud". The types of foods that can be eaten include: Grains - barley, corn, millet, oats, rice, rye, wheat. Therefore, these commandments deal with actions in mortality. What Is the Major Importance of the Book of Leviticus? .. The bringing together of the oil, frankincense, and grain in this offering is instructive (see v. 1). “Whilst leaven and honey were forbidden to be used with any kind of [meat] because of their producing.

Why Drinking Water All Day Long Is Not the Best Way to Stay Hydrated
Water is cheap and healthy. And drinking H2O is an effective way for most people to stay hydrated. The National Academy of Medicine recommends that adult women and men drink at least 91 and 125 ounces of water a day, respectively. (For context, one gallon is 128 fluid ounces.) But pounding large quantities of water morning, noon and night may not be the best or most efficient way to meet the body’s hydration requirements.
“If you’re drinking water and then, within two hours, your urine output is really high and [your urine] is clear, that means the water is not staying in well,” says David Nieman, a professor of public health at Appalachian State University and director of the Human Performance Lab at the North Carolina Research Campus. Nieman says plain water has a tendency to slip right through the human digestive system when not accompanied by food or nutrients. This is especially true when people drink large volumes of water on an empty stomach. “There’s no virtue to that kind of consumption,” he says.
Popeyes Launches Fried Chicken Sandwich by Teaming Up With Restaurant That Ripped Them Off
Two years ago, a small Southern-themed restaurant in Long Beach, California became a national media fixation when the owner got busted for reheating Popeyes fried chicken tenders and serving them to customers as part of a “chicken and waffles” special without disclosing the origin of that first ingredient. And now, in a bizarre but marketing-savvy twist, Popeyes is teaming up with the #popeyesgate restaurant — Sweet Dixie Kitchen — to help launch a new product.
It's Time to Stop Commenting on Your Coworker's Lunch
"Before you comment on someone’s food, ask yourself why you feel compelled to do so," says Caplan. "Much like commenting on someone’s appearance, food comments may be rooted in fat-phobia, or a diet mentality. Food is one part of the big picture that is health, and we should all have body autonomy in choosing what to eat based on our likes, resources, values, and preferences."
Aspartame Still Hasn’t Been Proven Safe to Eat, Say Scientists
Too much sugar is bad for your health — but the world’s most popular alternative might not be any better.
For decades, experts have questioned the safety of artificial sweetener aspartame — also known as NutraSweet — with some studies concluding that the sugar substitute can cause a host of health problems, from brain damage to cancer.
To put the issue to rest, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) conducted a closed-door review of available aspartame studies in 2013 and found it to be safe — but according to new research, that’s only because they threw out all the studies claiming otherwise.
Consumer Reports finds potentially deadly bacteria in pre-washed greens
A new report out Friday reveals some leafy greens recently sold at supermarkets were contaminated with a potentially deadly bacteria. Consumer Reports says it tested nearly 284 samples of fresh greens like lettuce, spinach and kale and found six of those samples tainted with listeria.
Consumer Reports says the six contaminated samples included both pre-washed and unbagged greens sold at retailers in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York in June, including Acme, Costco, Hannaford, and Whole Foods. All of the retailers stress that food safety is a top priority, and public health officials have not reported any illnesses or concerns following their own inspections.
Consumer Reports notes their study is not large enough to draw any conclusions about a specific brand or retailer, but rather is a "snapshot" intended to highlight that more needs to be done to ensure safety.
Cory Booker: A handful of companies make most of our food. We need to end big food mergers
We must restore competition to the marketplace so our farmers and ranchers can once again have the opportunity to share in the prosperity that open, transparent and fair markets provide. And that means that Congress must pass comprehensive legislation ensuring our antitrust laws are tailored to today's markets, and federal agencies must once again aggressively enforce our existing antitrust laws.
