In the past two decades, life-threatening childhood food allergies have risen steadily, growing by about 4 percent per year to afflict 32 million Americans, according to research by Northwestern University, McKinsey & Company, and Food Allergy Research and Education, a nonprofit. Studies estimate that the costs borne by American families — for medical bills, buying special foods or forgoing full-time employment to care for a child with a food allergy — total $24.8 billion annually.

There are several strong theories to explain the uptick, says Jonathan Spergel, chief of the allergies department at Children’s Hospital of

Maybe Handing Over America’s National Parks Is a Bad Idea

What happens when the cultures of a great melting pot can no longer abide the historical sins of one another? The question is hardly theoretical.

Before you start firing up the oven and making lasagna in bulk, here’s what you should know: The law covers “cottage foods,” which are non-temperature controlled goods that don’t easily spoil — items like tortillas, granola, and dried pasta. Homemade yogurt? Sushi? Don’t even think about it.

APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – Wisconsin’s cocktails to-go law has now gone into effect. Action 2 News first reported last week Governor Evers signed a bill that will allow bars and restaurants to sell drinks and glasses of wine made on premises for consumption off premises if packaged in a sealed, tamper-free container.

Prior to Sunday, bars and restaurants could sell all of the ingredients needed for a craft cocktail to someone ordering takeout — as long as the drink wasn’t mixed. Those same establishments can now sell those cocktails mixed as long as they’re sealed.

But one in particular has some people shaking their heads.

Under the bill, signed into law Thursday night by Republican Gov. Brian Kemp, it’s now illegal to hand out food or water to people standing in line to vote.

“No person shall solicit votes in any manner or by any means or method, nor shall any person distribute or display any campaign material, nor shall any person give, offer to give, or participate in the giving of any money or gifts, including, but not limited to, food and drink, to an elector,” the new law states.
