I just read that some 70% of imported extra-virgin olive oil in the U.S. is substandard, possibly adulterated or even fake! (Italy has a police branch trained to literally use the smell test.)

According to this article, Kirkland Signature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (the high-quality house brand from Costco) passed UCDavis's taste and chemistry tests (which many imported brands don't).

This article talks about heart health, and says that exercise will not counteract the bad effects of eating wrong, and also that too much exercise is as bad for the heart, as not exercising at all:

However, the part that annoyed me is that many doctors at the American Heart Association meeting last year when researchers held a seminar to discuss the new findings, feared that the public would get the wrong message about exercise.

If someone is stupid enough to get the wrong message in such a simple finding, then I think perhaps we would be better off without them.

That was so funny ...

As a sometime mini Schwarzenegger myself, I take umbrage at the gorilla comments :)

I don't want to know, Napoleon, I hate the type. And the dog doesn't seem to like it too.

No, Spud, I agree with your assessment of the gross avatar. And I'm not envious! You can be healthy and not look like that.

Health & Fitness is a good subject, but I'm always turned-off by the muscle-man avatar.  In the first place, he appears to be badly sunburned, the opposite of healthy.  Even a tan is not healthy.

The second problem is his muscles are gross.  Way over the top.  I suspect that is also not healthy.

Well, I suspect I'm now going to get beaten about the head & shoulders with a wet noodle for my heresy.

Bacon and egg in a doughnut sandwich, is it called heart attack special?

"Anti-health food?" Dunkin' Donuts, which touts "better-for-you" foods among their menu choices, is introducing bacon and egg in a donut sandwich as a regular part of their menu on Friday, "National Doughnut Day".
