WORTHINGTON — Summer would not be complete without picnics and barbeques, but be careful. Federal government studies have shown that cases of food-borne illness — also known as “food poisoning” — rise in the summer.

WORTHINGTON — Three months ago, I threw away all of the lists, took out a new piece of paper and wrote at the top “I will make health and wellness a fundamental value in my life!” With that statement, away went the worries of a diet, and I began to focus on being well.
WORTHINGTON — I called my mom recently and told her about the Brussels sprouts and parsnips I was making at work. I even told her my new favorite food was butternut squash. She responded with, “You have got to be kidding me. You are the kid that refused to even eat spaghetti!” It is true- I was deemed the pickiest of all picky eaters.
WORTHINGTON — The holiday season is soon coming to an end. For many, it means the beginning of a renewed commitment to weight loss — a cycle that has played out for years. I know this cycle because I experienced it personally at different points in my life. New Year’s Day is a day when we commit to new goals and say, “This is the year where I get back into shape, this is the year where I feel comfortable at the beach, this is the year where I stop eating so much fast food, and this is definitely the year where I get back into those jeans I still have from five years ago!”
It is that time of the year. Many of us come across something we have wanted to accomplish for a while but have not yet put our minds/effort/time toward actually doing it. Hence the New Year’s resolution — a time to get our butts into gear and just do it!
WORTHINGTON — If you stay up late enough watching television, you are bound to see countless you “can’t afford to pass up” offers on products such as lotions that claim to eliminate cellulite and abdominal machines that promise you those perfect six-pack abdominals that you’ve always dreamed of, but never before could attain. Celebrities and infomercial stars with those six-pack abdominals swear that they achieved them through one abdominal machine or another.
JACKSON — A little healthy competition never hurt anyone, and it just might help employees of two Jackson counties — one in Minnesota and the other in Mississippi — form healthy habits, improve their work and keep insurance costs down.
