The plan comes at a time of mounting global concern about the link between fast food and childhood obesity: The latter has reached epidemic proportions in many countries, and studies have found that salty, greasy restaurant diets are, in large part, to blame.
“They just kind of left in the middle of the night,” Greensburg Mayor Robert Bell said. “We didn’t know they left, and then we got a call from one of the other merchants there that there was garbage at the back of the building and it was starting to stink.”
But there is no reason to start drinking coffee for health reasons, the BMJ study found.
The University of Southampton researchers collected data on the impact of coffee on all aspects of the human body, taking into account more than 200 studies – most of which were observational.
Just 1 in 10 adults meet the federal fruit or vegetable recommendations, according to a new study published today in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).
Depending on their age and sex federal guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 1½ to 2 cups per day of fruit and 2 to 3 cups per day of vegetables as part of a healthy eating pattern. Yet in 2015, just 9 percent of adults met the intake recommendations for vegetables, ranging from 6 percent in West Virginia to 12 percent in Alaska. Only 12 percent of adults met the recommendations for fruit, ranging from 7 percent in West Virginia to 16 percent in Washington, D.C. Results showed that consumption was lower among men, young adults, and adults living in poverty.

Dubbed “Europe’s very first underwater restaurant” by the firm, the appropriately-named Under will be half-sunken some 16 feet into the sea.
While the building’s primary purpose is as a 80- to 100-person restaurant, Under will also serve as a marine research center.

Yelper Tyler Hiebert discovered the fast food chicken use, writing in an Oct. 9 review that he saw workers at the Long Beach eatery “quickly bring in two large boxes of Popeyes” into the kitchen. Hoping that it was perhaps food for the workers, he ordered the chicken and waffles (noting that it “tasted suspiciously like Popeyes”) and a waiter confirmed that it was Popeyes.

DENVER, the United States, Oct. 1 (Xinhua) — Two months after China and the United States reached a deal to reopen Chinese markets for U.S. beef in July, as part of the 100-day action plan to boost economic cooperation, American beef was back on China’s menu.
The year after the 2003 ban took place amid concerns over mad cow disease, American beef exports to China dropped from 3 billion U.S. dollars to 1.1 billion U.S. dollars.
By 2018 – market insiders predict beef sales will be 3.8 billion U.S. dollars to China alone – with no limit in sight
Walmart’s Jet.com will launch a higher-end grocery line targeting millennials, just over a year after Walmart spent more than $3 billion for the fast-growing online retailer amid more intense competition from Amazon.
Amazon.com Inc. last month closed on its acquisition of Whole Foods, intensifying the competition among Walmart, Target, and other supermarkets as all of them fight to win a bigger slice of the grocery market.

A “very small number” of European eggs that may be contaminated with a potentially harmful pesticide have entered the UK, the Food Standards Agency said on Monday. The watchdog said the threat to public health was “very low” and that the number of eggs involved represents about 0.0001 per cent of the eggs imported into the UK each year.
“The rain helped a lot once we got the corn planted,” said Katharine Paskorz of Paskorz Berry Farm in West Deer.
Paskorz started selling corn about a week ago, and is right on schedule, she said.
The Paskorz’s farm sells its corn at $6 for a dozen ears and $3 for a half-dozen, a deal considering a single ear is 60 cents.
Gregory Okin is quick to point out that he does not hate dogs and cats. Although he shares his home with neither — he is allergic, so his pets are fish — he thinks it is fine if you do. But if you do, he would like you to consider what their meat-heavy kibble and canned food are doing to the planet.
Okin, a geographer at UCLA, recently did that, and the numbers he crunched led to some astonishing conclusions. America’s 180 million or so Rovers and Fluffies gulp down about 25 percent of all the animal-derived calories consumed in the United States each year, according to Okin’s calculations.
A major supermarket chain said Friday it is removing all eggs from sale in its German stores amid a scare over possible pesticide contamination that Dutch producers fear will cost them millions of euros in lost income.
Aldi said the move was a “purely precautionary measure” and there’s believed to be no health risk. It said that, effective immediately, it will only accept eggs that have tested negative for the pesticide Fipronil.
The scare, which originated in the Netherlands and Belgium, has drawn growing attention in neighboring Germany. Germany’s agriculture minister and the European Commission both have said the situation is under control.
StarKist, once a unit of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, is now owned by South Korea’s Dongwon Industries. It was purchased by Dongwon five years ago for $363 million.
At the cannery inspection Nov. 2010, the FDA found “serious violations” involving StarKist’s seafood Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point plan and its production of low-acid canned foods. FDA said both the canned tuna and pouched packed tuna being produced by StarKist on American Samoa are “adulterated.”
Schumer (D-N.Y.), the Senate minority leader, issued a letter to the head of the Food and Drug Administration on Sunday calling on the agency to launch a study into the consequences of using phthalates in food packaging. In his letter to FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, Schumer notes that federal regulators have already banned six forms of the chemical, which is used to make products more “flexible and harder to break,” from being used in “children’s toys and other child care products, like those designed to facilitate sleeping, feeding, sucking or teething.”
The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) found glyphosate, the main ingredient in weedkillers like Roundup, in 10 out of 11 samples of the company’s ice cream flavors, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.
Chipotle says it believes an employee was working while sick at a Virginia location where dozens of customers reported becoming ill earlier this month with what health officials think was norovirus.
After the company reported improved sales for the second quarter Tuesday, CEO Steve Ells said that a company investigation into the illnesses found that its leadership at the store didn’t adhere to its protocols.
“We believe someone was working while sick,” Ells said, without giving specifics.
WASHINGTON, July 19, 2017 – USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service continues to move forward on lifting the U.S. ban on Chinese chicken, undaunted by legislation that some say is a threat to the efforts that have been wrapped into the U.S.-China Comprehensive Dialogue that concludes today.
A key agenda item in that conference in Washington is China’s agreement to lift its ban on U.S. beef. Another part of the deal is the U.S. promise to allow China to ship chicken here that was slaughtered, processed and cooked in China.
