  • The Shaming of Sir Bradley Wiggins: MPs Conclude that Cycling hero DID take Powerful [Trunc]

    Sir Bradley Wiggins took drugs to boost his performance before winning the 2012 Tour de France, a devastating report said last night. In a bombshell conclusion, MPs rejected claims that the five-time Olympic gold medallist took triamcinolone before the Tour to treat his asthma. They concluded it was, in fact, being used – within anti- doping regulations – to ‘prepare’ Team Sky rider Wiggins for the gruelling event. ‘The purpose of this was not to treat medical need, but to improve his power-to-weight ratio ahead of the race,’ they said.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D.-N.Y.) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-N.Y.) announced yesterday that the federal government will spend up to $18,000,000 to buy Concord grape juice in an effort to increase the price that New York farmers can get for their grapes. In a letter to Agricultural Secretary Sonny Perdue urging him to have the government buy the grape juice, Sen. Schumer noted that there are “more than 280 growers with over 9,700 acres” of Concord grape vineyards in New York State. “I write to encourage the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agriculture Marketing Service (AMS) to utilize...

    It’s weird to think about, but a lot of the things we take for granted are almost shockingly recent inventions. The can opener didn’t exist until 1870—nearly a full century after canned food was first produced (people ate so much canned food that year, you guys). Doors have been around forever, but doorknobs weren’t invented until 1878 (and people were finally able to leave their houses). And grape juice?

    O.J. Simpson has spent the past eight years locked up in Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center for his role in the 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping of a Las Vegas sports memorabilia dealer. He is not fairing well, his former business manager, Nick Pardo, tells PEOPLE exclusively. "He's a broken man," says Pardo. "He's really becoming a recluse and doesn't want to talk to anybody, including his own family." Adds Pardo, "He just wants to serve his time and part of him knows the only way to do that is to forget the outside world exists, which is hard to do...

    WHAT COMMON PRACTICE WILL HORRIFY OUR KIDS SOMEDAY?It puts babies' overall nutrition at risk Question Everything IconMany families are trying to reduce their soda intake but manufacturers are fighting back with “no added sugar” formulations and “fruit” drinks. So far, they’re winning. A drink of diluted fruit juice is the routine afternoon snack of many babies. It’s often the good stuff: pure juice. No nasty preservatives, more vitamin C than necessary and no added sugar. But you don’t have to add sugar to make fruit juice sweet—that’s why babies prefer it to water. And because they prefer it, it becomes...

    Health officials in New York City are cutting the amount of just (juice) that can be served in day care centers and raising the age of children who can drink it. In new rules published this week, the Health Code limits the amount of juice a child can drink a day at 4 ounces. The old rules allowed 6 ounces a day. Children must now also be 2-years-old to be served juice. The old rules allowed children as young as 8-months old to be served juice. The city cites USDA recommendations that the majority of a child's recommended fruit servings...

    Food Chemistry: The amino acid L-citrulline found in the fruit could help athletes avoid muscle soreness after a hard workoutBefore taking a long bike ride on a hot summer day, have some watermelon: The juicy fruit may ward off muscle pains. Researchers report that people who drank watermelon juice before exercising felt less sore the next day than those who drank a pink placebo beverage (J. Agric. Food Chem. 2013, DOI: 10.1021/jf400964r). They also found that cells absorb the presumed active ingredient, L-citrulline, more readily from unpasteurized watermelon juice than from plain water spiked with the compound, suggesting the natural...

    Saudi authorities are investigating how Israeli pencils reached one of the kingdom's biggest retail chains. The Kravitz chain, which markets the pencils in Israel, was surprised to hear about the affair stirring up the Gulf kingdom. It turns out that Abu Rialin, a Saudi chain which offers all of its items for two riyals, is selling one of Kravitz's most popular products – a set of 12 pencils with an eraser. The pencils are sold with the Kravitz logo in Hebrew and without any attempt to conceal the fact that they are made in Israel. Kravitz learned about the incident...

    AIPAC President Lee Rosenberg has sent an e-mail to delegates not to boo President Barack Obama during his speech to the AIPAC annual policy conference on Sunday. "We ask that you act and react to every speech, address, and briefing, that will be offered as part of the conference program in only the most positive manner," Rosenberg wrote. Rosenberg's e-mail is clearly targeted at responses to Obama's speech, as there is no concern that the AIPAC delegates will heckle Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or other Israeli speakers.
  • Restaurant gives Fla. toddler sangria, not juice

    LAKELAND, Fla. – Olive Garden restaurants are making changes after a toddler was served alcoholic sangria instead of orange juice at a Florida location. News of the incident comes after an Applebee's in Michigan accidently served a margarita to another toddler. Orlando, Fla.-based Darden Restaurants says the mix-up happened March 31 in Lakeland. Jill VanHeest says she took her 2-year-old son Nikolai to the hospital after his eyes turned red and dilated and he began acting up. She said he was given fluids and released a couple hours later with no lasting effects.

    We thought the worst for Tiger was behind him, or, at the very least, that no closet was big enough to hold any more skeletons. Looks like we were wrong—remember, Tiger owns more than a few houses, and more than a few closets. Behind door number—which one are we on now?—is the revelation that the doctor who treated Woods after his knee injury has been indicted in a doping scandal by the FBI, and is accused of treating athletes with steroids.

    America’s self-anointed food police have a new punching bag in their obesity crusade: fruit juice. We’re not making this up. The Los Angeles Times reported yesterday that a growing number of dietary do-gooders are now pointing their fingers at juice as a culprit for fattening waistlines:The inconvenient truth, many experts say, is that 100% fruit juice poses the same obesity-related health risks as Coke, Pepsi and other widely vilified beverages. … [I]t's time juice lost its wholesome image, these experts say."It's pretty much the same as sugar water," said Dr. Charles Billington, an appetite researcher at the University of Minnesota....

    It's time fruit juice loses its wholesome image, some experts say Compared with soda, juice carries more calories and as much sugar. There's also evidence that high consumption increases the risk of obesity, especially among kids. By Karen Kaplan November 8, 2009 To many people, it's a health food. To others, it's simply soda in disguise. That virtuous glass of juice is feeling the squeeze as doctors, scientists and public health authorities step up their efforts to reduce the nation's girth. It's an awkward issue for the schools that peddle fruit juice in their cafeterias and vending machines. It's uncomfortable...

    Drinking beetroot juice boosts stamina and could help people exercise for up to 16% longer, a UK study suggests. A University of Exeter team found nitrate contained in the vegetable leads to a reduction in oxygen uptake - making exercise less tiring. The small Journal of Applied Physiology study suggests the effect is greater than that which can be achieved by regular training. Beetroot juice has previously been shown to reduce blood pressure.
